Bit of a shit reason to sell a player, but in terms of finances, selling him would earn them a huge amount of extra money through Nike, not to mention that they could sell him to an adidas sponsored team for a ridiculous sum.
    Sad reality about modern football.



    That's an adidas top Cruyff is wearing there. Modern football is shit for many reasons, but this kind of stuff isn't new.
    Actually the story behind that Cruyff top is quite interesting. He had a sponsorship deal with Puma, and so wouldn't wear the adidas top, and wore a special "two stripe" version of it (as shown in that picture).

    Puma have since used the two stripe design for their own for Cruyff/Puma King related stuff, such as the Spurs third kit a few years back.

    Yeah, the cruyff episode was the first real conflict of commercialisation in football and, as you say, is a really cool story.

    Barcelona are calling a press conference. Rumours are it's for Vilanova to announce he is stepping down.

    The lack of competition in the Spanish league must make Barca and Real Madrid worse.

    They can still reach a high level but the bar could be getting out of reach. Champions League should be interesting.

    Barca's TV money for the season: 150m.

    Levante's TV money for this season: 10m.

    I'm shocked. Levante have done pretty well to get that much.

    I'm surprised 18 clubs haven't dug their heels in and demanded more revenue.

    Does the Premier League distribute equally ?

    Very good game between R Madrid and R Betis at the moment. 1-1, but Betis should be three goals to the good.

    Poor decision to take Cedrick off after just an hour. He's been Betis' best player.

    He was brilliant against Everton last week, constant danger down the left.

    PSGlol


    Does anyone else find it a little funny that the BBC have decided to follow Barcelona, Real Madrid, PSG and Monaco games on live text but almost nothing else from the rest of European football.

    Is it even possible to put a price on Lionel Messi? I wouldn't even know where to start withthat guy.

    Pretty sure they've put a 200m (or thereabouts) price on him, in the form of a release clause.

    Sounds like a mental last 20 mins in the Nou Camp. 3-2 to Barca now.

    Bale starts against Villareal.
