i have way too much time on my hands so i'll post what EPL top 6 teams have been up to

ARSENAL
>Kieran Tierney has signed a new long-term contract
>Guendouzi joins Marseille
>Arsenal agree £50m deal to sign Brighton center back Ben White
>Smith Rowe renews contract despite interest from Aston Villa
>Arsenal are lining up a £30m bid for Sheffield United's goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale


CHELSEA
>AC Milan signs Tomori for £25m
>PSG to beat Chelsea in Hakimi race
>Norwich sign Chelsea's Gilmour on loan
>Giroud completes AC Milan move from Chelsea
>Palace sign Guehi from Chelsea for around 20 million pounds
>bunch of young players leave after realizing that Chelsea is back to pre-Lampard days
they're also in for every striker there is like Haaland, Lukaku, Ings, Lewandowski and etc.


LIVERPOOL
>Wijnaldum joins PSG on free transfer from Liverpool
>Liverpool have signed centre-back Ibrahima Konate from RB Leipzig after agreeing to pay his £36m release clause.
>Significant uncertainty over Jordan Henderson’s Liverpool future. Talks to renew contract (2023) began weeks ago & no real progress. Neither side want a Wijnaldum repeat so it may open the door to 31yo leaving.


MANCHESTER CITY
>Fernandinho has signed a one-year deal to remain at Manchester City until the end of the 2021/22 season.
they're also interested in Kane and Grealish but i think there's nothing serious there so far


MANCHESTER UNITED
>Manchester United have confirmed an agreement in principle to sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund in a deal worth £73m
>Manchester United are close to agreeing personal terms with the representatives of Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane
>Jesse Lingard is part of Manchester United's plans going into the new season, says Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
>Manchester United are progressing in direct contacts to sign Eduardo Camavinga. Rennes would be open to negotiate on potential €30m fee - as they’d lose Camavinga for free next summer.
also there's some drama about Pogba again


TOTTENHAM
>Tottenham have confirmed that Villarreal have exercised their option to sign Juan Foyth on a permanent basis
>After failing the negotiations with every manager in existence, Spurs appoint Nuno Espírito Santo
>Heung-Min Son has signed a new four-year contract with Tottenham
>Bryan Gil-Erik Lamela swap deal between Tottenham and Sevilla is done. Lamela and €25m to Sevilla, Bryan Gil to Spurs.
>Spurs has no intentions of selling Kane this summer

hijacking this to say, are teams like Red Star Belgrade, CSKA Moscow and similar former Eastern Block clubs based or not?
I know they had a military background which currently can drag some reactionary elements like ultra-nationalism etc but their aesthetics really draw me in

by the way Red Star has won more UCLs than City, Arsenal, PSG and Atletico together ever have kek

Who knows, this season already feels kinda lost for Barcelona.
The fact is that Barcelona in 2021 is not a very good team, and they don't have money to buy new players. Gavi, Nico, Fati and Pedri are all promising players but this is gonna be a long term project, I think. Luckily, Xavi is gonna get the longest leash possible and Koeman already did a lot of the dirty work and I think he deserves some credit for incorporating some of these La Masia players in the first team squad.
I think it would be best for them just to forget about the Champions League and focus on a decent result in La Liga. Even though they have the worst team in years they should still be able to finish among the top four.

how do i get into watching soccer?

like there are different leagues right?

which one everybody watches and has good commentary and is regularly aireds?

country? city based?

 No.22721

Every nation has its own league. The best are in Europe. England, Spain, Italy, Germany are some of the best and most popular leagues.
The best clubs from Europe also compete in the Champions League. The knock out phase of that tournament will begin in a few weeks, that would probably be a good place to start if you aren't familiar with the sport.

Soccer is a silly game. Just men flopping onto a field for 90 minutes(not even exaggerating, seems like there was a flop every 2-3 minutes.) Then you get bored and look away for 5 minutes and you missed the one and only goal in the game.

 No.31302

>>31299
The fact that there are fewer goals because it's much harder to score is actually what makes it better you halfwit. Shouldn't be hard to realise why.

Just look at the explosion of passion when a goal is scored, versus the mild whoops from the crowd when the 750th basket or touchdown of the match is put away.

Football also has promotion and relegation and the possibility for very small clubs or nations to upset the big teams, which is impossible in your system of soulless franchises.

The flopping to the ground and time wasting is a menace but both are things they are actively addressing with changes to the rules and VAR, but if you think football isn't a very physical game it's likely you've never played a game of football past the age of seven.

A balance would be nice, gets tiring watching for 20 minutes straight and nothing's happened at all. You can go the whole 90 minutes with nothing happening god forbid.

>Football also has promotion and relegation and the possibility for very small clubs or nations to upset the big teams, which is impossible in your system of soulless franchises.

Probably true. I dunno I don't follow footie or American sports enough to comment on.

>The flopping to the ground and time wasting is a menace but both are things they are actively addressing with changes to the rules and VAR, but if you think football isn't a very physical game it's likely you've never played a game of football past the age of seven.

Didn't claim that. It's just the design of the game seems bad that the only way to steal the ball is borderline tripping the other guy. Similar stuff happens in Basketball, but I think there is more chance to steal without every single attempt being a foul or almost foul.

 No.31304

>>31303
Also, with so much less points, and each point being more crucial, it makes referee decisions much more impactful, which is bad. I wonder if anyone has compiled statistic like that, about how much referee decisions impact the outcome of games, but if I was designing a sport from the ground up, I would focus on design it so the refs have as little impact on the game as possible.

 No.31305

>>31303
If you looked up from your phone you'd see that most tackles that bring people to the ground are not given as fouls. It's also interceptions and 50/50 headers that are more crucial for regaining possession.

There's a reason why the rulemakers were hesitant even to introduce goal line technology until the early 2010s - it's never been a sterile sport where everything is set out in stone; things like debatable refereeing decisions are what make the game unpredictable and interesting to talk about.

If you simply can't go for an hour and a half without seeing a ball go into a goal then that's fair enough, but there are many draws, games with few goals and goalless draws that are very entertaining because it's not simply an exercise of wanting to see a ball cross a line.

Again, the easier it is to score, the less interesting it is for the majority of people. I can't think of anything more dull than a sport where one team concedes a goal and then immediately goes and scores at the other end, for 90 minutes. If you want to see something that looks like football but has massive scorelines and almost no defending, try out gaelic football.
