What an absolute joke. I feel really bad for Robert Moreno who unlike most other coaches is a genuine coach who fought his way from the very bottom. Most of the coaches nowadays are former players who basically pay for their licenses.

He was doing a great job and was just months away from coaching Spain in the Euros and out of nowhere seems like he won't even be the assistant coach.


I feel bad for Luis Enrique as well as he had to go through some tough sh*t, but it's not like you can just resign and go back in charge whenever you like. If he wanted the job again he should have been waited at least until the Euros.


Poor Robert Moreno said goodbye to his players and left in tears :(
But wasn't he the assistant? And I remember him saying that when L.E is ready to come back he will make way for him. Can't he go back to hiss asst role?

Ukraine in a higher pot than France underlines the absurdity of the system they adapted for the pots.

Haha, nice. It's not Euro but more like Audi Cup or old Liga Pokal. :lol:

The pots are ridiculous. World Cup finalists France and Croatia in pot 2. :lol:

I didn't ask why; just that the system is absurd.

Probably uefa wants to have some groups of death in order to generate some interest

'It's a disgrace... football has become more and more a business': Kevin De Bruyne blasts UEFA after Belgium's Euro 2020 group is known - two weeks before the draw - as they're put in with Russia (again), Denmark and either Finland or Wales

Belgium will likely be in a group with Denmark, Russia, Finland or Wales
Kevin De Bruyne is not happy that it is clear ahead of the draw taking place
He believes it shows football is a 'business' prior to draw on November 30

Kevin De Bruyne has hit out at UEFA and labelled the current state of the European Championship a 'disgrace'.

After the most recent round of international fixtures brought an end to the initial qualifying process, Belgium know they will be in Group B for Euro 2020 with Denmark, Russia and Finland or Wales ahead of the draw taking place. This is due to the rules over hosting and seeding.

Roberto Martinez's side, having won their qualifying group, are one of the top seeds, along with England, Italy, Germany, Spain and Ukraine. But with four of those countries hosting matches and all hosts being split into pairs, the Belgians must join two hosts. But they can't join another top seed while Russia and Ukraine being kept apart due to their political climate has a knock-on effect on where teams will end up.

With the tournament being held across 12 cities in as many countries next summer, hosts have been paired together and Belgium will face the Danes in Copenhagen and Russia in St Petersburg, where they won last weekend.

But Manchester City star De Bruyne is clearly unhappy with that being clear prior to the teams being pulled out of a hat on November 30.

Speaking to Belgian outlet HLN Sport, the 28-year-old said: 'It’s a disgrace. For me this feels like competition distortion. Football has become more and more a business'.

De Bruyne was involved and scored twice as Belgium overcame Cyprus 6-1 on Tuesday evening.

His team finished six points clear at the top of qualification Group I after winning all 10 of their matches. They beat Russia 3-1 in Brussels and 4-1 in the return in St Petersburg.

As well as Russia and Denmark, Italy, Azerbaijan, Holland, Romania, Scotland, England, Spain, Ireland, Germany and Hungary are tournament hosts.

It all kicks off in Rome's Olympic Stadium on June 12 with the final taking place at Wembley on July 12.

This will be the 16th edition of the European Championship and is being held across the continent as a 'romantic' one-off event to celebrate the 60th birthday of the competition, according to former UEFA chief Michel Platini.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-7705789/Kevin-Bruyne-hits-UEFA-claims-competition-distortion-Euros-group.html


As long as you have 'fans' who support this business, it's going to be like this. But everything was ruined before, when Euro 16' format was changed and now this. You players wanted, you got it. After all, everything had started with club football 15-20 years ago and after that even Fifa and Uefa started to serve crap as meals with competition expansions, Uefa Nations League, etc.

Now nobody is happy. Dear Kevin, don't be hypocrite and for a change be noble and romantic - reset football to factory settings - year 1995. :mrgreen:

The host city pairings have been decided by means of a random draw – from six different lists of city pairings established on the basis of sporting strength and geographical considerations – and will be as follows:
Group A: Rome and Baku
Group B: Saint Petersburg and Copenhagen
Group C: Amsterdam and Bucharest
Group D: London and Glasgow
Group E: Bilbao and Dublin
Group F: Munich and Budapest

Each qualified host country will play a minimum of two games at home.

Not sure in what world geographical considerations put together Rome and Baku, and St Petersburg and Copenhagen. :lol: The most sensible pairing would be:
Rome and Copenhagen
St Petersburg and Baku
Amsterdam and Munich
London and Bilbao
Glasgow and Dublin
Bucharest and Budapest

De Bruyne has a valid point.

However if he wants to complain about football becoming a business he should first have a look at his payslip and then make conclusions :wink:
