As a Fan.... Episode #29: UEFA update, Liga MX news, Newcastle United, and revisit Starting XI’s, and more
The boys are back hosting another episode using virtual hangouts to talk about all things football/soccer, or at least what is available during this pandemic. Dan and Jaime welcome return guest Alex to the show, and also introduce a new guest Greg. We start off in Liga MX with the news that the league is postponing Promotion/Relegation until 2023 due to second division financial capabilities. We then talked about UEFA latests outcome from a meeting over the week in which leagues are starting to set some dates to return to competition; while some leagues (Belgium) have ultimately finish their season as is and gave Club Brugge the Champions Trophy; other countries (Holland, Scotland) have decided to cancel the rest of the season without a 2019/2020 winner nor relegated team(s). The teams affected by this was Ajax (would have been back-to-back) and Celtic (would have been 7-time winner and only winner of Scottish Premier League format). We talked about the upcoming takeover of Newcastle United from a Middle East country, and the players/coach currently linked to the club. Finally, Dan and Jaime decided to invite both guests (Alex/Greg) to give their teams from Episode #17 (new years special edition). They would have to created a team (formation, coach/ XI players) with no more than one player from same country; and create an All-Time XI and Current XI.
