Hillsborough was more of a crush. Heysel was a stampede.

Some nerd at The Athletic will already have a 2000 word article drafted for the first time a commentator refers to a midfielder as an athlete.

They’ll be going into overdrive with the XG and Zone Fourteen patter now they’ve been taken over by the yanks.

Seen a decent looking bet but it disappeared off sky bet… Haller, Mahrez and Salah to score 3+ goals in tournament each 100/1.

Ended up opting for Haller top scorer and Algeria and Senegal to reach semi finals 66/1.

It's got to be the worst of tournaments, you look at some teams and you think they look good on paper but absolute pony in practice.
