For the Americans here, Man Utd v Sheffield Utd is on NBCSN. Everything else is Peacock today.

And the Untidy match will be a case of seeing which Untidy team shows up (not that a win or even a draw will do the Blades any good, but it could cause a manager to be looking quite nervous, and not the one gaffing the Blades).
 
2021-01-27 1:09:21 PM  
FAO Brits - Chelsea/Wolves is in progress (<2min in) followed by Man Utd / Sheff Utd on BT Sport 1.

BT Sport 2 has Burnley / Villa (In progress <4min) followed by Everton / Leicester.

Nothing else on, including Sky oddly.

Even though my pred calls for Untidy to win, I will not be upset with a draw or an Untidy loss at all.

I don't know what's sadder about yesterday's revelations about Barcelona's shoddy finances: that they're so deep in debt or that they still owe money for Coutinho when they'd just received a fortune for Neymar.

It all makes Bartomeu's decision-making even more bizarre. If the team was in such dire straits, why the hell did he spend $3M on a smear campaign?

Allegedly, Barcelona doesn't owe Liverpool directly. Liverpool sold the debt to a third party for a lump sum.
 
2021-01-27 1:38:29 PM  
Barcelona is apparently also breaking La Liga rules about how much of your revenue is spent on player salaries. The cap is supposed to be 70%, but they're spending 74%.

To give an idea of how calamitous that is, it's generally accepted that a healthy club spends 50% at most.

You mean the club members. Similarly to the Green Bay Packers, Barcelona are owned by the fans themselves. The new president is going to end up like Sisyphus.

It is different at the moment.

Rangers went belly up because they tried to run a complex tax avoidance scheme for player wages but it went wrong, it was tax evasion. HMRC does not fark around and has been responsible for nearly all the British football clubs going under due to tax problems.

Now Spain also has a big problem with unpaid taxes and football clubs but that has been defused, a decade ago the Spanish tax man went hard after clubs.
