David Alaba, who just signed, is more of a multi-position floater.

    Mind you, a lot of what they do will hinge on how hard UEFA lowers the boom on them for the Super League fiasco.
    They instituted a 10% across the board pay cut yet still purchased Alaba? I can only hope they can’t upload and are either stuck with players or sell without being able to replace. I would like to see Sevilla or Villarreal or even Betis make this league more competitive.

    I think the urgency on SuperLiga was the teams at the top can hear the footsteps coming up from behind them. I said this last year and I'm even more convinced now, sometime this decade Sevilla will win the league. If Madrid actually stiffs Sergio, that's where I think he should go (Isco too).

    As for the money, Alaba's getting paid absurd money for the next five years. Sure doesn't seem like the actions of a club in financial distress. I can't sort it out. Either they're slitting their own throat or they're lying about their financial situation. I suppose it could be a mix of both.
    Now begins the winter of our discombobulation.

    Both RM and Barcelona are pleading lack of funds but like BOA. Too big to fail. Fear and Loathing in La Liga. They have to be in CL at all costs. I know Barcelona was approved for a loan to help with their wage Bill

    Top two Italian coaches return to previous successful teams. Allegri returns to Juve after a two year break. Ancelotti returns to Madrid.

    Feel like Italy will do well. If I had to bet I’d go with France.

    The Netherlands has an extremely easy group stage and possibly an easy draw to start the knockout phase (though it could draw the odd team out from the France/Portugal/Germany bracket). It's a team that's probably going to have the luxury of playing into a rhythm.

    France will win. When is the last time Finland made the euros? I am very curious about their squad and tactics.

    They've never qualified for a major tournament before this one. I think the plan is to get the ball to Pukki. Just noticed they've got two Minnesota United guys on the squad. That's pretty cool.

    Reading now they may have saved him. Pictures coming out that he was conscious while leaving the field.

    UEFA just put out a statement that he has “stabilized” and is at a local hospital.

    Whew…
