    I agree about the football this year. I was very disappointed when Barca lost, and the prospect of all the hype surrounding three Premiership teams in the semis is depressing.

    I also think European football leagues have always been overrated. I’ve been planning a post of my own on the Intercontinental Club Cup, and the record between European and South American clubs is more-or-less even. Interestingly, European teams won it every year from 95-99, the time you point to as the peak of the Champions League.

    There’s no great teams anywhere at the moment. It is very sad.

    It’s like the watered-down American leagues.
    The top talent is going everywhere, not to the usual places. This dilutes the product somewhat.

    Forty-seven-year-old Oliver Kahn? Nah. He’s eighty-two. At least.
