    I figured I'd make a thread to talk about the rest of the European Domestic Leagues again this year, seeing the EPL and Champions League Threads up. I'll be trying to post a few Bundesliga breakdowns when I have the time to.

    Sounds good, Jack. I will enjoy reading them, but you gotta get crackin' on those college football write-ups! ;)

    Since there isn't a new Champions League thread I'll comment here about today's draw.

    A team I'd never heard of until this week, Qarabag, is in the 2017-18 CL. They come from Shia Muslim Azerbaijan - a country that always comes to my mind when I think of Europe - and they look like they will be punching bags as they're in a group with Chelsea, Atletico, and Roma. Potential cricket scores ahead.

    Juventus and Barca in the same group may sound exciting but their competitors are from Greece and Portugal.

    Liverpool got lucky, relatively speaking, as the team from the top pool in their group is Spartak Moskva. Sevilla, who didn't look great against some smaller Istanbul club in the qualifying legs, are also potentially the only beatable Spanish team from a Liverpool standpoint but I wouldn't count on it given their defending. The other team are minnows, Maribor of Slovenia, so it couldn't have gone much better from a Liverpool.

    Celtic in the same group as PSG and Bayern Munich has a future in Europa League, whilst Spurs, in with Real Madrid and Dortmund, may join them.

    Man United gets Benfica, CSKA Moskva, and Basel of Switzerland.

    Like Liverpool Man City got a seemingly weak top seed in Sh. Donetsk. Napoli look quite good though. No idea about Feyenoord but I'm guessing they're out of their league.

    Celtic can't catch a break. Last year they were grouped with Barcelona, and Man City. Now PSG and Bayern jeez. Celtic are a team to root for starting 9 whites, sometimes 10 when Leigh Griffiths gets picked over Dembele.
    Celtic should at least finish 3rd in the group over Anderlecht.

    Wasn't sure where to put this but Germans gonna German:

    https://www.yahoo.com/news/knee-comes-germany-hertha-solidarity-150935939--spt.html

    Hertha Berlin nodded to social struggles in the United States by kneeling before its Bundesliga home game on Saturday.

    Hertha's starting lineup linked arms and took a knee on the pitch, while Pal Dardai's coaching staff, general manager Michael Preetz, club officials and substitutes took a knee off it before playing Schalke.

    ...The action was intended to show solidarity with NFL players who have been protesting police treatment of blacks and social injustice in the U.S. by kneeling, sitting or locking arms through the anthem before games.

    Last year, then-San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick started the movement, which has been harshly criticized by President Donald Trump.

    "We're no longer living in the 18th century but in the 21st century. There are some people, however, who are not that far ideologically yet," Hertha defender Sebastian Langkamp told Sky TV at halftime. "If we can give some lessons there with that, then that's good."

    Yes, giving lessons. My experience in Berlin involved many lessons, sanctimonious lectures actually, from German after German. You see, Brits and Americans have failed to shed our imperialist racist ways unlike the superior Germans who are so much more advanced than us. If there were a World Cup for smugness they'd win that as well.

    “"Hertha BSC stands for tolerance and responsibility! For a tolerant Berlin and an open-minded world, now and forevermore!" the club said on Twitter.”

    Hahahaha, don’t these cucks realize how gay they sound?

    Watching Red Star Belgrade hosting Arsenal (Europa League) I think The "Serbian" team are as black as the "English" team. Red Star have three black Africans. It's not deterring their infamous Ultra fans though as they are cheering more wildly for their boys than any American football stadium full of DWFs. Serbia has fallen to multiculti. They even have a new lesbian Prime Minister. Sad.
