Awful first half by Liverpool at Southampton, and then - boom! Mane snags the lead with a rocket into the far corner just before halftime. What a beautiful goal.

I noticed last weekend there was a LaLiga match scheduled and when I went to put it on, it wasn't.

Honestly I got scared when I saw your post there Lorenzol, since I'm a new Dazn subscriber. Not that bothered losing those though.

My guess is that the EPL rights fee must have been really high for them to give up on Bein, La Liga and Ligue1.

Championship division in England has the 3rd highest attendance in Europe. That tells you what carrying the English leagues means to Dazn.

I'm quite happy with the content. To get to see League Cup matches and Europa is the icing on the cake for me.

Reminds me of when Joey Barton went to play in France and then shit on the league in a press conference in a French accent

I understand Ibra's view on playoffs, but you're here now and you must have known it coming in. I don't think Zlatan has the ability to just stay hushed.

They are sixth in average attendance. Third in total due to more matches played. Though they are third, I believe, in percentage of capacity.

I also think the decision had more to do with increased demands from BeIn. They were dropped from quite a few carriers as they asked for more money, even though they lost Serie A the previous season. Reminds me of one of my rants with Fox. They raised the price on the Match Pass streaming service the same time they lost CL and EL. Don't even think they have the Scottish league either. Ridiculous, particularly when compared to NBC's Premier League streaming package.

It's been two matches, but can't say I am a fan of Gladbach's style. Feels a bit disappointing that the era is over. Style, attitude, expectations, and most of the players are changed. EL still a realistic possibility, but can't help but feel they've been passed by a few clubs. And while they aren't a conservative or defensive side, still too pragmatic for me.

But, was somewhat surprised and impressed with young Chelsea side. Think they will finish outside of CL, but should be fun to watch, as much as that pains me to say, for a change.

Mount, Pulisic and Abraham looked good today. Certainly a much different Chelsea team.

Randomly had ESPN on this afternoon...this Roma/Genoa match is awesome.

The Genoa equalizer was a thing of beauty.

Big win for Newcastle! Tottenham couldn’t make a comeback to even tie. So much for Son being back!

Looks really good and considering its from the guy that did "Senna" and the Amy Winehouse ones, you at least know it won't gloss over the dark bits.

The reason for Lucho's sudden departure as Spain's coach has become public. His 9 year old daughter, Xana, passed away from osteosarcoma. Fuck cancer.

Guaranteed spots = European Super League.

Fuck that. The sport is going to destroy itself through greed. The smaller clubs will go to the wall - it's already happening with Bury (and almost Bolton). The rich get richer (although they're also piling up massive amounts of debt) and the poor get poorer.
