    I expect Juve to beat Napoli today (match is in progress right now, I think). Will likely be very close, especially since the former haven’t been fully at it under Pirlo (who could potentially be sacked between now & May).

    Some drama there in that Juve game away to Udinese. Two goals from you know who in the last couple of minutes to * a 1-2 win. Keeps them on track for a Champions’ League place, and it now looks as though Pirlo and Ronaldo are staying.

    Couldn't remember, but see it was Juve choking at 10 too.

    PSG were going for 9, but that might be out the window.

    Pirlo has been a disaster. He must stay.

    It's probably the same for everyone though, the way football is set up and the rules under FIFA, UEFA and League associations you need to tell them and have apporoved matches even friendlies you play need League and FIFA approval for refereeing etc

    They would never approve these matches so if clubs did play in them they would be banned but it's not going to happen now anyway so nothing will happen.

    Been a weird season for some big teams us, PSG, Juventus and Liverpool all collapsed from recent form with Juventus and Liverpool maybe not even in the CL. Dortmund might not make the top 4 in Germay for the first time since 2014-15 as well and Atletico Madrid might win the League for the first time since 2013-14, Shakhtar losing the Ukranian League for the first time since 2015.

    Porto and Benfica have been terrible also and Sporting will win the League for the first time since 2002.

    Istanbul Basaksehir who won the Turkish League in 2020 and hadn't finished any further than 4 points behind top since 2016 came 14th, 37 points off the top.

    Bodo/Glimt won the Norwegian League for the first time ever.

    Brondby could win the Danish League for the first time since 2005.

    Cagliari might just have saved Juve’s season by getting a draw at AC Milan tonight. I think it’s a given that Juve will beat Bologna away in the last game of the season, but I don’t think Milan will get more than a draw away to Atalanta. From a purely selfish point of view, I’d like to see Juve play in the Europa as there is a chance we could draw them in that competition (it’s inevitable we’ll be in that completion at some point next season). Would love to see Ronaldo play live in the flesh at Celtic park before he hangs up those very prolific boots of his (never saw him when he played against us in ‘06 & ‘08).

    Can’t believe Napoli bottled it.

    What is with all these teams over numerous leagues looking like they don’t want it??? I watched the last 20 of the Napoli game and they didn’t look like a team that needed a single goal.

    Only thing I can think of is the lack of fans. Some teams are feeling it more than others, definitely ourselves anyway.
