Atleti still atop the table, but Peong yuh get yuh wish ... that final engagement versus Barca will be decisive.

Maybe, no guarantee of that yet, but seems to be heading that way.  This weekend was interesting, can't say I would have predicted it, that said still think AM have it...Barca is at it's lowest since Frank's last season, that should help plus RM have celta and espanyol to contend with...  ;D

Deserving champs: conceded 26 goals in 38 games. Scored 77. Record 28-6-4. Sure Real and Barca hit the 100 goal mark, but in the end that was not decisive.

Barca was the only other team to concede less than a goal a game (33 in 38).

So do we run out and play like AM now? Does Simeone get the opportunity to coach T&T? Where does the AM bandwagon line start?

1. We as in T&T? ... Or, as a model for teams generally?
2. Sometime near retirement  :devil: ... his ppl will be in Buenos Aires for the friendly to discuss prospects for the 2034 WC campaign. At that time a memorandum of understanding will be signed following the game. There will be provisos regarding the federation's good standing within FIFA. As a former player, he plans also to express solidarity with the 2006 Thirteen and insist that they be paid by then.
3. Ah glad yuh mention de wagon word ... I'm happy to take advantage of it to establish meh longtime bona fides regarding this club :) ...

 
..

In Spain, at the beginning of the 90s, specific legislation providing for 'sporting SAs' or SADs came into being.  Although clubs like Barca and Madrid have resisted the SAD (them switching is always the subject of speculation and rumour), one of my clubs of sentiment in Spain - Atletico Madrid - has adopted the SAD form. Money and control is big demarcator in this debate.

...

Bredda ah cyah complain. Saw 3 of the 4 goals. The 4th one scored in the dregs as I was outside, but as the fans were cheering it was clear a goal had scored so I caught the replay at "El Bar de La Aficion" across the street.

Disappointed with the scoreline. Going in, I anticipated more parity of the match but once Valencia opened the scoring that was that.

Ah tell yuh what ... Kondogbia was ah joy to watch when he had the ball. Today wasn't the day to see his defensive qualities per se. Players like that shed a whole different light on the game and would be a quick wake up call for local players.

If he keeps it up by next season he should be a regular on the 1st....I'm rooting for him.

La Liga set to play first game in United States or Canada in new marketing deal.
By Jeff Carlisle - U.S. soccer correspondent


A regular-season La Liga game is set to be played in the United States or Canada for the first time after the league reached an agreement with Relevent, a multinational media, sports and entertainment company, on a 15-year joint venture for promotion in North America.

Although the date and location are yet to be determined, it would be the first time the league has decided to play a game outside of Europe.

"This extraordinary joint venture is the next giant leap in growing soccer's popularity in North America," Relevent chairman and owner Stephen Ross said. "This unique relationship will create new opportunities for millions of North American soccer fans to experience the most passionate, exciting, and highest level of soccer in the world."

Ross also owns the Miami Dolphins and is a part owner of their home, Hard Rock Stadium, which would make them the frontrunner to host the event.

"It's not hard to figure out where we would want it to be based on our ownership with Stephen Ross," Relevent CEO Danny Sillman said via telephone. "That part isn't too difficult to figure out. [The match will be held] much sooner than the public is expecting."

The venture, called LaLiga North America, will represent the league in the U.S. and Canada in all business and development activities. The organization will support the league's growth through the establishment of youth academies, development of youth soccer coaches, marketing agreements, consumer activations, and exhibition matches.

LaLiga North America will be led by Boris Gartner, formerly the head of strategy at Televisa. He also has executive experience with Univision.

"We're devoted to growing the passion for soccer around the world," La Liga president Javier Tebas said. "This ground-breaking agreement is certain to give a major impulse to the popularity of the beautiful game in the U.S. and Canada. Relevent has filled stadiums across the U.S. with the International Champions Cup, [and] we're thrilled to partner with them on a joint mission to grow soccer in North America."

LaLiga North America will also handle the sale of media rights on the continent once the deal with beIN SPORTS expires at the conclusion of the 2019-20 season.

Sillman said that while there will be efforts on multiple fronts to increase revenue and build awareness, the media rights will be the biggest revenue driver. He said La Liga is already the second-largest soccer league in terms of media rights, behind the Premier League.

"The [North America] media rights now sell for about $120 million to beIN, and if you look at the upticks of the other leagues -- the EPL doubled, the Champions League doubled -- even if we grew 15 to 20 percent a year, you're talking [a total of] $2 billion just in media value," Sillman said.

Sillman said Tebas has been working on the next media rights deal for the last six to 12 months, so the intention is to sustain that effort.

"Obviously, they want to maximize their distribution, so we'll be moving very quickly with Tebas, getting in the marketplace, and understanding what the broadcast and streaming partners are looking for," Sillman said. "La Liga works with Facebook in India and a bunch of the digital players as well. We'll start to figure out the best way to carve up the rights from the digital and live broadcast in Spanish, English, and French for the U.S. and Canada and start to move fairly fast on putting a strategy together."

Sillman said that the process of joining forces with La Liga began 18 months ago with an extensive proposal process. Relevent was chosen in February in part because it had experience working with Real Madrid, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid through the International Champions Cup, a summer tournament that the clubs use for preseason.

The particulars of the joint venture were finalized in the last few days.

"Tebas saw what we did with El Clasico [in Miami] as a part of our ICC tournament last summer," Sillman said. "Our ability to tell the story of the history behind the clubs, the league, and the matchups really [helped] build a great spectacle for American fans.

"The [regular-season] match will be a big piece of the joint venture as well. With the precedent set for American sports to be exported all over the world -- MLS going to Japan, the NBA in Europe, the NFL in Mexico and Europe -- there still hasn't been anything with European football in the States, so it's going to be really exciting from that standpoint to import the games to American fans and give them a chance to see it up close for those who may not get the chance to see it in Spain."

The real measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.

So Lopetegui ketch at Real Madrid at the expense of doing battle with Spain in Moscow and finds himself out the door at Real before November.  Was it worth it?

I like Hierro and understood Rubiales' decision to name him as Lopetegui's replacement, but Lopetegui's stock would have risen had he stayed with Spain and taken the long view.  Now what?

I guess back to coaching youth teams. If the situation was handled better he could've actually coached Spain in the WC and kept the Madrid job, unfortunately both turned out to be a disaster and his status as a coach took a major hit, so in hind sight I don't think it was worth it.
