Now of course Arsenal have ditched their manager as well. So we wait to see who gets that job. A number of other managers are at risk as well.

Somehow, Ole outlasted both Emery and Pochettino, with the latter already linked to Arsenal.

But at the bottom, the immanent philosopher sees in the entire universe only the deepest longing for absolute annihilation, and it is as if he clearly hears the call that permeates all spheres of heaven: Redemption! Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!

I would find it surprising if Poch joins Arsenal.

Of course not. It’s still five months until the PL is over.

Håland, what a player. Can't wait to see what the future holds for him. PSG is lucky to have a away goal, and to have lost only by one, it could have been a lot worse.

It’s insane really. Ten goals in CL in seven games. Scoring goals for fun.

My team (Hearts) have been expelled from the Premier in Scotland. Complete farce. One of a very small numbers of teams to be "relegated" from a top-flight league in Europe without completing the season. We were bottom with eight games to go (four points behind second bottom, only one team gets relegated automatically and the second bottom team goes into playoffs). It's gone to court and will now go to arbitration.

I thought they were relegated according to the rules. But yes it’s harsh. I see it is local arbitration so good luck.

What rules? There were eight games left to play and we were four points behind 11th. The last five games were going to be against 7th-11th place as well.

There was a vote ages ago on whether or not to end the season. The vote would have failed but the SPFL "lost" Dundee's 'no' vote and then managed to convince Dundee to change their vote to a 'yes' and that ended the season and they ended up expelling us from the league because of that vote. The club's received the proposal on voting to end the season about two days before the had to vote and were told they had to vote 'yes' or wouldn't get the TV money (or something along those lines, that claim appears to have been very dubious).

There was then a vote on reconstruction to 14-10-10-10 instead of 12-10-10-10 which would have meant two teams were promoted from each league and no teams were relegated without finishing the season but that vote failed. It's been handled terribly from the start. They also cancelled the promotion playoffs from tier 5 into the league (which the tier 5 teams are extremely unhappy about but they don't have the finances to challenge such a decision).

The rules of relegation are that teams are relegated at the end of the season, there are no rules to relegate teams after 30 of 38 games.

I think France and Belgium are the only European leagues (at least of the to 20 leagues in Europe...I only checked that far as it was taking ages) to have relegated any teams without finishing the season although I know that's been challenged legally in both cases as well. Most leagues have either decided to complete the season or have cancelled relegation.

The group stage draws are out today with some rather silly groups:

Group A - Bayern Munich / Villarreal / Manchester City / Napoli
Group B - Inter Milan / CSKA Moscow / Lille / Trabzonspor
Group C - Manchester United / Benfica / FC Basel / Otelul Galati
Group D – Real Madrid / Lyon / Ajax / Dinamo Zagreb
Group E - Chelsea / Valencia / Bayer Leverkusen / Genk
Group F - Arsenal / Marseille / Olympiakos / Borussia Dortmund
Group G – FC Porto / Shakhtar Donetsk / Zenit St Petersburg / APOEL
Group H – Barcelona / AC Milan / BATE Borisov / Viktoria Plzen

We're going to have to put up a hell of a fight to beat the #2 French team and then the German champions. Terrible Group G, though Group A should have some great matches.
I have a good feeling about Chelsea’s chances here.
