Those Dinamo Moscow transfers...Mendes singlehandedly bankrupted a club lol.
Can I go to Jorge Mendes academy?
Wonder how many Raiola has? these two really dominate the market but Mendes tends to get less flak at least on this sub.
btw could you translate what it says on the top right (the 3 graphs)?
edit: used deepL and it’s “companies with greater weight in exports”, he is pretty close to “navigator”.

They forgot about the Bebe transfer to United where Mendes got 3.6m of the 9m fee
André Silva ... what a fraud
How’s Carvalho got on at Forest?
So for some reason I wanted to learn more about Mendes, I typed in Jorge Mendes into google and the suggestion for "Jorge Mendes wife" came up
Being the loser that I am, I decided to do more research. Not bad, man. Not bad.
Oblak was the bargain of them all change my mind.
Witsel's agent was Mondial when he went to Zenit, I literally read a book about dodgy deals the other day so not sure how much of this list is correct.. They had Coutinho, Cavani, Ramires, Mahrez etc on their books too, made an absolute killing the past decade.
Must have had an amazing time in 2012/13
Ivan Cavaleiro for 15 million is daylight robbery hahahaha
Doesn’t include Cristiano Ronaldo 2009
Holy shit Anderson for 32 million.
you know france sucked when the keeper has double the team rating
Hasan ali deserved a 7 imo, was a machine in that first half
Average French player rating of 3.2 is brutal, although probably deserved.
Mbappe way too high. All the outfield players were bad, but he looked the most catastrophic for me.
Ferland Mendy - 3
Coman - 3
Ben Yedder - Unrated
Skomina best rated. Slovenia represent!
How does Hasan Ali Kaldirim only have a 6? He completely shut down Mbappe
With ratings that low did pogba think he was playing for United?
Umtiti was slightly better than Varane then?
Merih Demiral just a 7 and Hasan Ali Kaldirim just a 6 ? Demiral gave the french strikers 0 chance and HAK destroyed Mbappe.
A very generous 3 for Mbappé lol
Under had a great game
People still don’t get that for L’Equipe a 5 is an average sort of ok game and having a great game is a 7 or 8.
Only truly exceptional performances are 9 or 10s.
Why on earth does Matiudi play LW/LM?
Giroud a 4???? That Demiral kid had him in his pocket he couldn't do a thing up there.
The reason why Pogba is not the captain is because Lloris has represented France way more longer than Pogba
Harsh ratings for the turks imo, I think they deserve higher
About right. Wonder how much of a difference Kante could've made.
Didn't watch the game, but Lloris must have been pretty good. Did he save a lot?
Mbappe deserved a 1/10. L'Equipe's bias is leaking
Also how did the lamp post get a 4/10?
Deserved. Imo Sissoko and Digne were the most shit tho, Pogba was slightly less shit.
Hasansio pulling out some magic tricks
Turkey at home is a 100x better then Turkey away. At home they are insanely good, away its meh.... I do hope they qualify. Looking forward to Netherlands - Turkey in EC, a game that will bring so much passion with the supporters.
I didn't catch the match but some of these ratings are catastrophically low.
How did Digne do?
Everyone talking about Kante... The player we have been missing the most and which explains our bad form is Hernandez.
When he's back, our NT will be back (to playing like shit but winning lol).
I haven't seen the match, can anyone tell me how my boy Cengiz Ünder played?
They looked like they were playing with a flue.
Typical Pogba, playing better for France than he does for United
Demiral is gonna be a beast at Juve
Hasansio deserves a 7, Burak deserves a 6 I think. Sure he missed some clear cut chances but consider the following:
A) Some of those clear cut chances he got himself into was due to his great positioning
B) His pressing was exceptional, best example I can give is how his pressing gave Under the 2nd goal of the game.
It was a horrible performance from France.
Yilmaz surely more than a 5
Kaldirim should be 9
with those stars players, france still lost
Should be lower imo. Truly a disaster
Are Turkey gonna win the group?
Disrespect to Hasansio is unreal
Too low for Burak..
It's about right, I'm surprised there aren't any 1's in there honestly. I'm not quite sure what to make of that performance. Turkey were very good that game, but we still should've have been able to produce a better performance. Maybe there was something in the water? who knows...not trying to make any excuses for the World Champions. We should have been playing N'dombele instead of Sissoko which was the most glaring choice IMO. Regardless of this disaster of a game, it's better that we let it happen now and make corrections rather than discover our shortcomings late in the group stages of the qualifiers.
I think the wingbacks are low in rating. Celik should be a 6 and Kaldırım should be a 7.
i love l'equipe ratings
Pogs playing better than he has for most of the season, at least.
I have just read an opinion that the altitude at which they played might have helped Turkey. Even though it's just 1000m, I wonder if it could actually had an effect. I didn't see the match, but how were French players physically? Especially given that Mbappe's key skill is his speed.
Where is Özil's rating?
Didn't watch the game. Turkey's average rating seems a tad low. Or are L'Equipe's ratings just conservative?
Sissoko is arguably the worst French cm in history
Pogba played worse than that.
French people really don't mince their words. People sometimes find it rude, but they just don't sugar coat anything. It's not personal.
Got confused looking for Ozil there.
Does Griezmann still think he should win Balon D'Or ?
Lol ofcourse pogba gets a 2, Mbappe was far worse and the whole team sucked.
Just out of curiosity. What is the worst ranking L'Equipe gave Ronaldo and Messi?
I thought Pogba was good for France and he was more of a leader!
How is Umtiti starting for France when he can't start on Barcelona over his French national teammate?
France was really lucky at the World Cup, is not the first time a "weaker team" beat them badly.
Only won wc on officiating
Ok play the ball upfront! Fuck its Giroud
Ok play the ball on the wing! Fuck its Pavard
Ok I gotta play it backwards. Fuck its Sissoko
Also giving 4 to Giroud is such a desperate attempt to exonerate him from his responsabilities.
If only France had a striker that already silenced a turkish crowd internationaly wink
Who gives a shit, it was a meaningless game
Lmao using slow ass matuidi on wing over Coman, Lemar and Thauvin
How the turntables
Did lille bring in Uno reverse card in last transfer window
good from lille, my favorite club
How does that even happen lmao
Tío Falcao is probably in tears. sad!
Monaco were 1.50 to make it to top 3. Also second favourite for the title. Talk about underperforming.
Could a ligue 1 fan explain to me how lille managed that incredible turn around?
Would be a nice competition without psg
Good ol switcheroo
So it’s PSGs turn next season
I feel like in an ideal world, this is how league football should work
the ole switcheroo
Monaco and Lille trading places.
Lille played the Uno card on Monaco
I too read the comments from the earlier thread about Monaco surviving relegation
And then they say FIFA Career Mode isn't realistic
the league was so close, psg need to watch out next year
Anything can happen in a farmers league.
The circle of life.
whats this with monaco... i dont follow the french league but i sometimes see them in the champions league then they are relegated etc...
Who cares about the pony French league. It's like a Scotland or Germany only one winner every year. Boring
What a boring league
they're all so bad in that league (ligue) it's basically just a roll of the dice where you end up
Henry should not have taken that position.
Vaduz aren't champions technically because there's no championship in Liechtenstein
Piast won the Polish League? That’s incredible
All this tells me is that Juventus have the worst club crest in Europe.
Low key triggered by the exact same colouring on England and Wales, I thought TNS played in green and white?
Who are the smallest team to ever qualify for CL group stages since the tournament took on it's modern format?
Why Bosnia is dark?
Nice of them to include Cyprus :(
FK Sarajevo in Bosnia
TIL Gibraltar has its own football league. Pretty good for a 30k pop country.
young boys beating juve. that's crazy
What's your favorite logo? putting the team completely aside, just from the logo aesthetic?
I fucking love Benfica's symbol jesus.
So the favourites won pretty much everywhere. England, Italy, Germany, France, Spain, Portugal, Scotland, Denmark, Austria, Sweden,Ukraine, Turkey, Russia, Czech Rep, Moldova, Switzerland, Finland. I find it a bit sad that we dont see more upsets than this.
We're only like 10 games into the season for the Norwegian league.
Very eyepleasing, nice!
Rosenborg. Wtf went wrong between seasons.
UEFA members missing from this:
Israel: Maccabi Tel-Aviv
Cyprus: APOEL Nicosia
Montenegro: Sutjeska Niksic
San Marino: not finished yet
Andorra: Santa Coloma
Faroe Islands: HB Torshavn
Iceland: Valur Reykjavik
Georgia: Saburtalo Tbilisi
Armenia: not finished yet
So the CL winner badges would cover Europe then ?
As a huge train guy since the age of 3 I must say CFR Cluj has one of the most underrated badges in Europe
All these teams should play each other in another competition.Maybe some type of tournament with group stages and play-offs... a type of league if you would like.. for Champions.
It shall be called the league of European club group stage playoff Champions!!!!
Some 2nd place, 3rd place and 4th place can come too.
And the Europa League winners
Really? What about APOEL in Cyprus?
Hell yeah PAOK i knew you guys could do it
Good year for round crests
Can we see what this would look like if only goals from outside the box counted?
Piast Gliwice 👏👏👏
The champions league should go back to including only the league champions and champions of the domestic cup. 2 teams from every country.
I'm so fucking happy that PAOK is on this map
3 Albanian team became champion!
FC Santa Coloma in Andorra is missing!
The Irish league plays throughout the summer so Dundalk aren't champions yet
Didnt realise Benfica won the league. Thats incredible.
How many teams in Gibraltar? Im curious
Czech Republic right at the heart of it all
I’ve always enjoyed the fact that Shakhtar Donetsk’s Cyrillic letters look like WAXTAP in Roman letters.
Where’s Azerbaijan on this map?
Notice there is no Azerbaijan team in this image. Yet its the host of a European final. That's odd. Its almost as if its on another continent
Luxembourg has a soccer league?
No Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina?Or Sutjeska, Montenegro?Bad post Goal.com baad post.
Honestly Benfica's crest looks so good.
Wow, they left out Cyprus...
Wait what, Eliteserien and Allsvenskan literally just started like 10 matches ago.
It would be cool if they could set up a tournament to determine who the overall champion of Europe is. 'The European Champions Cup', they could call it.
Wales should be green not blue.
Up the bhoys
Finally, Malta represented 💪
Make one of main domestic cup winners (FA Cup, Copa del Rey, Coupe de France)... No meme cups like the League cups please.
Ohno.. i was busy making this as well like i did couple of years ago... Oh well wasn't far anyway.
Gibraltar has its own league?
I like the fact we finally got other champion in Poland
So basically you never new Bulgaria exists? :)
And none of them are in the Champions League Final lol.
Capitalism has ruined football.
Anyone have a link to the older ones? I remember seeing Last years but I didn't save it.
The real Champions League...
why doesn’t Wales have it’s own colour
How do you add Gibraltar but forget Andorra and San Marino.
Why is there a Welsh team there.... I thought Welsh teams played together with English teams?Swansea, Cardiff, Newport... Wrexham...
There's a sperate Welsh league....????
Policemen, carpenters and brick layers from San Marino or Luxembourgh can't wait for Polish champions.
Where's Azerbaijan? You know that well known European country.
It's all so... dull.
I guess the Faroe Islands and Iceland arent in Europe...
No Israel :(
Yet none of them are in European finals
If there’s a championship in Wales, why do Swansea and Cardiff play in England?
I love this, thanks for sharing
Where is Azerbaijan?
Interested to see Barcelona vs Gibraltar champions. Surprised Polish football is so poor quality wise with the size of the country in comparison to some others.
This makes Italy look so ominous.
You are missing San Marino
Woah woah woah the Campionato Sammarinese hasn't finished yet! And you forgot Andorra.
This is from last year
Man, why is there no winner in Montenegro, last weekend FK Sutjeska won..?I mean, I hate the club but put some respek on Montenegro..
FK Sūduva !!!
If AIK had a black background it would look so much better
Sweden doesn't have one 18/19 champion. Our season runs from spring to fall.
What's south of Benfica and Barcelona?
So who's gonna win next season's CL?
Juve's logo tho
Fuckin tim bastards
Good to see Sheriff winning the Moldovan League again. Will we see them in the Champions League next season? Who knows...
What's the little one in spain
Heyy Valletta with the mention :)
Piast fucking Gliwice XD
This should be the group stage of the champions league next year tbh
Bulgaria's First League is one never ending experience. 10 months in and still no idea who is going to get relegated or qualify for Europa League. And it's not because the teams are equal.
Those Azores are incredibly disturbing. every single island is on the wrong place. Porto Santo looks bigger than Pico almost. That is really really really bad.
Otherwise, people talk of North and South, but the big thing in Portugal is coast and interior. Portugal is kind of an island nation (or a set or archipelagos, though not quite these ones on the map), since the interior is so depopulated.
Chaves was the last club further than say 30 km from the sea.
Away games must be easy to follow as Portuguese fan
Does anybody live in the east?
Nice derbys coming up
Without Spain, Portugal doesn't look like a face...
It kinda looks like a short king with a smol pp
How dumb am I for thinking for 24 years that Porto was based on Lisboa? I didn't think there was an actual city named Porto, lol.
Lmao what’s going on with the Azores in that map
Credit to /u/otanerpt
Hey the country looks like one of those Easter Island statues
Must be fun having away games so close to home.
Portugal has Fly-over country too I see.
Any portuguese could explain why someone would choose to give the name "Famalicão" to a football team ?
All the miles traveled in one season by a portuguesa football team the Oakland Raiders (American football) will travel in one week to London.
Edit: except the island teams.
Is there a reason for this concentration on two points?
And 5 teams can still be relegated!
Just a reminder Serie A works in head to head.
Milan have the superior record against Roma and Atalanta. Inter better against us.
Not sure about the other head to heads though if someone can fill in the blanks?
Edit:I think inter have the advantage over Roma on aggregate score (3-3 but inter have scored 2 away goals)
Atalanta have advantage over Inter (4-1 aggregate score)
Roma and Atalanta are even Stevens (6-6 aggregate score)
So Roma have no advantage over anyone and can finish with a max of 66 points so I believe they are out of champions League race?
Just noticed Fiorentina with 5 Ls in a row
Are Roma still in it?
What needs to happen for Roma to make it?
Glad we ain’t fighting in it jeez
Empoli fighting off relegation vs Inter fighting for UCL will be a nail biter
Always rated the Europa League.
Astana away will be fun
Roma can't make it, they are out no matter what.
Roma are done. No need to include them.
They are level on head to head with Atlanta and Inter. Their only hope is a 6 goal turn around on goal difference between them and Inter. And they need Milan to lose in that scenario too.
No chance. Not even in Italy.
Doesn’t Torino/Lazio also determine the final spot for Europa?
This is gonna take years off my life
Atalanta - Sassuolo will be played at Sassuolo's stadium (Mapei) because of the renovation works at their stadium.
Roma kinda fucked it up by drawing with Sassuolo yesterday
I hope Inter make it!
Juve's goal difference isn't much better than Napoli's yet they have so much more points than them
Rome is out actually, they can't finish top 4 due to results in their matches against Milan, Inter and Atalanta.
Fiorentina tho (5 loss in a row) wut
I dont know why but I just have a certain disdain for Genoa. They're probably the most mediocre team that I have watched in serie a
Will Atalanta have their stadium ready for next season? Would be awesome that they have CL in their first season back.
Sleeper Agent Manuel Locatelli Activated
All I got from this is that Atlanta has scored the most goals in the entire league. Explain this to me, why are they so on fire?
46 goals conceded - most since 99/00
12 losses - most since 98/99, and last surpassed in 73/74 (13)
68 goals scored - fewest since 97/98 (they scored 102+ every season of the Ronaldo era except last year with 94)
Hell hath no fury like a humiliated Real Madrid going to the transfer market...
And people said we won't be able to create new records after Cristiano left us. Lol.
Hide your everybodys
Can't believe they managed to get CL football while only being good for a few months
Last 3 times we failed to get 70 points we won the Champions League. This is our worst season in 30 years
We won the CL that season, like how tf is that even possible ?
It was frustrating to watch, but sometimes you need a season like this to assess how best to move forward. What is working, what is no longer working, do we need a tactical overhaul, a squad overhaul, both, etc? While one tumultuous season doesn’t guarantee you exact answers to all those questions, we now have a more clear picture than we did last summer.
From winning 3 CL titles in a row to this. Unbelievable.
Almost forgotten how successful Pellegrini was at Real to not win the league. 96 points, good gracious.
This is a disgrace!
It's as if when Ronaldo left, Madrid had a free fall
That would've put them 6th in the Premier League.
Quick, blame Bale!
Just shows how many points Ronaldo was worth
Average around 75 goals a season, then after Cristiano joins they average around 105. Insane.
If Real Madrid's points were worth double in England, they would have won the Premier League!
3 coaches in one season. Expected!
Because Spain only has three strong teams and a generous four Champions League places, Real Madrid don't really need to win many games after the title is out of reach.
Who cares whether Real Madrid finish 10 or 20 points ahead of the fifth placed team? It doesn't really matter.
and still got 3rd place.
la liga progressed, but i want other contenders.
i cant wait until im old and another spanish team beside, fcb, rm and atletico win la liga.
‘We don’t need cristiano’
Of all the transfer rumours coming from Real Madrid, Florentino Perez leaving should be the game changer.
Hazard joining his dream club
At least, they were at the first tier all the time.
And the 15/16 La Liga was something else apparently.
We won the next season, I guess that's something...
We finished only 7 points behind Real
Beyond the banter era..
Ronaldo leaving won’t make any difference they said, they are REAL MADRID they said.
Hazard sure he wants to play on a worse team in a worse league?
Sorry Real fans just joking! Good luck with the rebuild! ; P
How they get to play CL after such a terrible season really exposes the quality of LaLiga imo
Real Madrid have won the league a mere handful of times in 20 years 😂😂😂
"The Zidane effect" lol
That jump in points and goals scored after galaxito or whatever it's called summer.
If that’s the case we are winning the CL next year! Way to go boys!
I love seeing the Spanish “giants” come crashing back down to Earth. Hopefully in just a few short years no one will want to play there they’re so bad.
I love that Athletic Bilbao. Team that was suppose to go down this year cause they were really terrible (in first part of the season) lost fewer games.
as long as he doesn't do it with my club I dont rate him
reminder that the Bundesliga only plays 34 games a season
Also, 8 of 10 league trophies won. He didn't win the league in 2011/12 (the season wherein Madrid amassed 100 points) and 2016/17
15 16 would be very close if not a 100 point league in a 20 team league, too.
One of the best managers of all time. People will say he’s spent loads of money but we’ve seen other managers do the same and accomplish nothing and play shite football.
Has he ever won a game where his team was the underdog? I honestly don't know the answer to that question.
It's like when you play FIFA career mode and you start with the top team. Not fun.
Imagine if Big Sam had Pep's kind of money, would be 95% points taken for him I reckon!
Another amazing product of Sir Bobby Robson’s management tree. It’s incredible the influence he had on Pep, Jose, Blanc, and Luis Enrique just for starters.
People will give him flack for only going to the top clubs and winning, but I think it still takes a lot to manage the crop of players he has at his disposal, maintain the winning mentality across every competition ( as in, none if the "well settle for the draw" or "it's the league cup" or whatever) and surpass the other teams nipping at his heals all the time.
I think the biggest thing Pep has going against him is that his mistakes or deficiencies can very easily be patched up with money. He had so much money to bring in Walker and Mendy and his squad was fixed just like that. Compared with a team like Arsenal or Spurs who spend big money on players like Mustafi and Sissoko, and when it doesn't work out they just have to persist on because they can't afford to take the financial hit of replacing them.
That isn't to say he's a scrub. When Mendy was out his solution was to convert Delph and now Zinchenko into makeshift lbs and they won the league with them.
Points should be normalized by maximum number of points as the Bundesliga is smaller.
People be like IWoMder If hE caN mANagE My 5 YeaR oLd dAugHTeR To lEaD tHe PreMiEr LeaGuE
That is, pardon my French, flipping bonkers
A good manager for sure but look at those teams. A Barcelona side with Messi and a generation of Spanish world cup winners, a Bayern fresh off winning the champions league and a Man City where the previous two managers had both won the league and the club was constantly in the top 4.
Of course if he beats Watford in the FA cup final there is no disputing he is the best football manager that's ever lived and a literal god genius gift to the world of football...
How long before he gets bored and shows up at Cambridge or Stoke? I reckon Metz would have him if he called.
No CL tho so I don’t buy this
And more money spent than the GDP of a mid sized country. Does tend to help.
Pep is a wonderful manager, but those three teams have been the best in their respective leagues with other managers too.
Let's see him do it without being gifted the best squad in the league
How much did he spend?
And still hasn’t done shit in CL for like 9 years
I want to see him go to a non-ready club. I like Internazionale but was interested in seeing him follow his words about coaching Brescia.
It takes personality to manage renowned players and big budgets, and to make such teams work to their potential. But a different challenge where he must introduce and implement his evolved style, having to develop players and make it work with a less homogeneous and talented squad would be extremely interesting.
my average was undefeated on FM, get good scrub. I used the unlimited money cheat better than you
82% is like a low B. Not impressed. /s
What about his net spend over that time??
Fraud, couldn't take the challenge at Man United
Why do people continue to lie about Pep's career in Barcelona ? This is one of the biggest myth in football, and the crazy thing is that everybody can know the truth in 2 seconds but for some reason, they don't want to know it.
When Pep started as manager of Barcelona, they were in a bad shape. They finished 3rd and had to go through the third qualifying round of the Champions League. 18 points behind Real Madrid, 10 behind Villareal.
The year before, he coached Barcelona B in the Tercera Division. In his first year, they finished 1st and he brought them to the second division. Txiki and Laporta decided to bring Pep because of what he did in Barcelona B and they trusted him to bring his philosophy to the team. He got rid of Deco, Ronaldinho, Zambrotta, Edmilson, and brought Alves, Keita, Piqué, Hleb etc. He also promoted players from Barcelona B (who played in the third division the year before) to complete his team. Busquets and Pedro, and two year later they will play and win the World Cup for Spain.
In Pep two first years, he took Barça B from Third to Second division, and then took the first team from being 3rd of la Liga and an early elimination from the CL, to a treble and the greatest season of the club history (without Deco and Ronaldinho).
One question to these people who are lying about Pep's career, do you like Football or is it just for you a way to write your own narrative without seeing what actually happened ?
There is a strong case to be made that Guardiola is the greatest manager ever when it comes to winning leagues.
He didnt win the CL without having peak Messi plus peak Xavi, Iniesta, Busquets though. He has played 10 seasons as a coach, in 9 of which he had one of the current top3 teams at his disposal (I'd argue that City in 2017 wasnt a top3 team). And only won the CL twice in those 9 campaigns with top-tier teams. When we'll be looking back on his career in 10 or 20 years, this will weigh heavily on his resumé.
Bayern never should have replaced Heynckes in '13.
My nan could achieve this with the resources nad exceptional player's hes had.
Are we really going to argue that this is all his doing? I would argue he was a slight disappointment at Bayern for not winning the champions league once with what was arguably our best team in its prime... Barcelona I mean u could put a fucking donkey as their coach and they still wouldve won: I mean their entire team was a team of legends essentially!
I wanna see Messi play for Leyton before we start calling him the best in the world.
Bearded fraud gets exposed time after time in the WC with the different players around him
Now let's combine Valverdes's winning percentage these last 2 seasons, Heynckes's season before he joined Bayern and Pellegrini's title-winning season at Man City....would that be MUCH different?
Fucking shit we're screwed
Could he do it in cold nights with Stoke though.
Smh only got 100 points once
I would love to have Pep at AC Milan.
A "out of"-addition would be nice, since there are more teams in the PL than in the Bundesliga. So getting 90 points with Bayern is pretty much just as impressive as getting 98 with City.
I would be interested to see how he'd do at a lower league side. Say, league one or two. Not denying he's a great manager, but I wonder if he'd be a great manager at a lower level.
Winning every single year since becoming first team manager
Brilliant coach but he's always got the best squad in the league.
you can say what you want about only big teams or cl semis , this is just incredible high level consistency.
But can he do it with a shit side like Stoke?
Yeah. But can he manage Stoke in a season made up of cold, wet Wednesdays?
he should start a LLM to see how good he really is.
One of the best managers
Pep doesn't fetishize the champions league. He focuses on the league first and foremost. The pace his teams set is absolutely ridiculous.
Baby come back...
2.46 points per game, for anyone who prefers that metric. As an illustration, in the Premier League that's about 93.5 points.
Ηe won the league with 79 pts in 2015.
The effect of BvB having a shit season.
Some fans may hate him now ( I mean those who are not City fans) but he is going to improve the standard of the league. The days of winning the league with anything below 90 are probably over as long as he is there. Doesn't mean he will win every year but any team that tops Guardiola's team is going to be very special. Heck, this Liverpool team is already a very special team
He may leave if this champions league holds..
How many champions league wins does he have tho? 🤔
He should go revive the italian teams. Either AC milan or Inter. That league could use some life
What happened second season at Bayern?
Like to see him manage a club without the big bucks.
And he did it with the limited amount of resources made available to him, kudos.
Really is incredible, but hard to argue that money doesn't play a small role as well...
Honest question, but what can fans, players, communities, owners, do to help keep the playing field more even when it comes to sports, especially the Premier League. Keep in mind all sports are different so they might not all have the same solutions.

Klopp > Pep
thanks for the sesseno
Note that there are only 34 matches in a season in the Bundesliga - that’s why the Bayern points tally looks worse, but it’s just as impressive
Easy to point out this win ratio and points won etc when he had a Barcelona team about to hit its prime, took over Bayern Munich when they dominance Germany and Man City with endless reserves of money, I’ll put £10 his next destination is juventus, PSG, somewhere with big money, easy win .. if he took over Man Utd and did this .. well I could say maybe he’s decent but come on! Guys a fraud! Easy teams with easy leagues in two of them!
They should show how much he's spent on transfers every season as well. He's a great manager but he should have been able to go further in CL with Bayern and City
For me, he is closer to being great than just good. But it is something that separates the great from the rest of the pack and it is taking teams that aren't fancied or not a big club, without financial muscle to compete at the top table and then go on and shock the world.
Wonder how many points he’d win per season if he wasn’t always managing the best team in the league by a mile.
Barcelona/ Munich and City. Some of the richest and biggest clubs in the world.
City alone have almost two players for each position. They have £50m signings sitting on the bench.
Even with the City squad, they played bad in a few games this season that they should have easily won.
What an achievement... You could have Krusty the Clown managing these squads and see similar results. He has also acted like a little whinging child throughout the season on the touch line when things don’t go his way (e.g. keeping Aguero sidelined whilst insisting to play Jesus).
Do the same with a smaller, less funded squad Pep and I’ll give you some recognition. Until then, you’ve ridden the tide of buying success and trying to take credit for it.
Many PL squads have been terrible this season (United, Arsenal). La Liga has 1 main threat, Real Madrid. Munich own the Bundesliga.
Best manager in the world and it's not close
Hopefully he stays with us for a while
To everyone saying that he spends a lot, then yes he does. But give the same money to other managers? Would they accomplish the same thing as he does?
Mancini and Pellegrini had the exact same conditions as Pep, but they didn't come close to what he's achieved style wise. That's the reason you bring him in, he's a specialist. You trust him with the big bucks cause he's proven that he wins you things.
B... B... But Klopp!
Wonder if he'll ever manage a team that's not already well established.
Imagine if he didn’t dope his players? He’d be at least 75%
Think anyone of us couldve coached these teams to be fair
Amazing how he's frauded his way into that many points, top level baldery
Obligatory post to complain about the coefficient pool.
Uefa ranks all 32 teams by past performances Uefa performances over 10 years and previous trophies won going back to the 1960s.
AEK Athens ranked 32st got €1m. Real ranked 1st got €35m. It's ridiculous.
Look at Germany Hoffenheim got €3m versus Bayern's €33m.
It's just a way to protect the old guard
Kind of weird that Man United get so much money, enough to almost make up the difference from not having made the semis
Shows how lucrative it is to be in the PL and CL. All those teams will make ~£300m just for their participation in those competitions this season.
Announce new signings.
People shouldn't be so happy that their team is getting so much money from a single competition, but at the same time complain about allocation of tickets, ticket prices, prices of TV subscriptions. Where do you think the money is coming from?I prefer if clubs would get less money, stop throwing around millions to buy players, and instead have cheaper tickets, affordable TV subscriptions, and fans fill stadiums.But, of course, it's not gonna happen :(
Does anyone have a similar information for Europa league lol
my god we've absolutely raked it in these last 2 seasons
Does anyone know how much we get? Iirc its going to be a lot because QF is the cutoff for KO payments.
Good, now give us our fucking cheese room!
A lot more than last year it looks.
Still getting to the final in Champions League gives less than the last place in Premier League gets...
Spurs and Liverpool each top €100 million in Champions League prize money
Soon UEFA Champions League = Just a fancy FA Cup
This so why the superleague bullshit is happening. Domestic success is worth nothing for non English leagues.
English teams receive a bullshit advantage.
Out of curiosity, what is the performance bonus based on?
Shit the bed.
Nice to relegate them on the last day?
I'm from the future and I can tell you that this happens to Ajax next year.
