This is not a vent board or any other kind of therapy. Before you hit the POST button, ask yourself if your contribution will add to the level of discussion going on.
Important notes on articles:
- Please do not copy entire articles into your post; rather, provide links to them.. We are now links-only for ALL Internet publications. If only a small portion of the article pertains to your post, Fair Use allows you to copy those one or two paragraphs, provided you cite the author's name and the publication for which he writes. Otherwise, put a link in the HTTP Link box.
- Even if you're copying a reference to an article, provide a link to the page from which the article came. We're trying to cut down on duplicate topics, and the posting process will check the link to your article to see if it's already being discussed on this board. At the very least, you'll save yourself some grief on the boards.
- If your first reaction after reading the article you're going to share is the author is uninformed / stupid / a jerk / all of the above, it's not worth sharing with anyone. Not every article needs to be discussed. The more the hair-pulling articles are discussed (e.g. ESPN Page 2), the more the authors will write hair-pulling articles.

They play each other in the Champions League by wcnitz
Which is the best competition for club football on the planet. And it generates hundreds of millions of euros for clubs, billions in revneue yearly.
And yeah, only the 'big' clubs really compete for that title. Lots of English clubs, but there are other big clubs that play (typically) a huge role as well - from Spain, England, Italy, France. But these other leagues are hurting overall with finances with the exception of those big clubs. And even some of those are in trouble (see: Juventus in Italy). Bayern, in Germany, is an outlier because they're incredibly stable financially and very well off.
The longer this goes on, the more the talent will stockpile in England. It's problematic.
