    My thoughts exactly. The quality of players and clubs has declined markedly in the last two years especially. Klopp has done a great job at Liverpool but they are the best of a mediocre bunch. City, Real Madrid, Psg, the other epl teams. All mediocre. I can only think of Haaland as a potential world class number nine. I mean back in the day you could actually buy a young player for a decent price and he'd develop into a world class player. Nowadays there are so many young players who turn into duds. Look at Pogba. He has a net worth of 85 million without really achieving anything. The money is killing the game.

    People have faith in a side that lost to Monaco (LOL), got canned by Pool before they were dominant, and choked v Spurs (who themselves are quite the choke artists).

    Imagine betting on this team against RM. Chances are the City players' spines will spontaneously liquefy once the CL anthem plays at the Bernabeu.

    The ban is for next two seasons. It doesn’t effect the current season.

    Too bad UEFA already investigated PSG during 2 years only to get cleared of any wrongdoing. CAS even made the final decision regarding this case. It is therefore binding and there can't be anymore investigation. That was with all the Football Leaks related to PSG being out.

    What Qatar did is no secret : they put an extraordinary value to QTA contract and UEFA had to assess the value. Unless there is some new obscure leaks exposing new facts about PSG, don't have too much hope.

    That said, Nasser is in a tight spot with the leaks about his role in the Qatar WC and Athletics broadcasting rights. There seems to be corruption but it has nothing to do with PSG.

    To be honest, WC numero 9 of previous generations weren't playing as many games a year (lot more friendlies and international these days) and there are more goals scored now than before. Ofc, if you are refering to the time when there was Ronaldo O Fenomeno, Etoo and co., it is true that no one comes close now. But they were All Time Greats.

    Marseille won and got suspended from European competition afterwards. They still kept their title despite everyone knowing about their mafia tactics.

    They will appeal, don't think this is over yet.

    Also stuff like this increases the chance of on indepent European Superleague (outside of UEFA jurisdiction).

    It makes a break away league less likely.

    The biggest clubs in europe want City/PSG etc to be banned if breaking the rules.

    Juve and Real have been the driving forces for a breakaway european league, if they can get a PL club on board it becomes more likely not less.
