Europa League is for losers

Yeah, I said it. The UEFA wooden spoon is a shitty little competition, a footballing Sahel where misspent ambition and delusions of grandeur go to die.

I realised this as Juventus, that iconic establishment of world football, was being destroyed 4-1 by Fulham (Fulham!) in said shitty competition. The Italian “giants” went down with barely a peep, and all this after taking the lead against the mighty fucking Fulham. Snore.

Then Liverpool, my Liverpool (oh, Liverpool), we who were kicked out of the vaunted Champions’ League, thrashed Lille 3-0 at home. I chose to go to bed early, rather than endure the comedic stylings of Lucas Leiva and the Falling Tower of Babel.

And people are celebrating like we’ve slain a footballing giant.

This tournament doesn’t matter. It’s like Division One football – you know it’s there, but you don’t know who’s winning it, neither do you care.

I remember when we (sigh, oh when we) were in the top tier, I never even bothered to watch Thursday night football cos it was meaningless to me; it was like that third cousin you know is overseas but don’t really give a fuck about, and don’t even have on your Facebook.

Now I have even less incentive to care, cos my team is in it and that hurts me so, so, so bad.

At least I have The Stormers.

  1. So in a nutshell losers should not compete with other losers? Its like saying the third stream at O’level should not be graded, since they are already daft.

    Liverpool, has descended into an abysmal league of the ” once upon a time” and on the road once travelled by leeds. Good bye, its was “once upon a time” a pleasure to be at Anfield.

    First, you put words in my mouth, which I didn’t say, and then proceed to make an O-level analogy from a premise which I never offered. Not worth a response.

    I’m offering my opinion on the competition, because to me, it’s shit. Period. Trying to deduce any more from that is foolish!

    As for “Spurs”, I don’t see many Greek teams lighting fires lately … what’s going on?

  3. I saw some Zimbabwean economists around the ministry of finance the other day !I’m sure they just wanted to see the sights.
