Ligue 1 will be renamed "Ligue 1 Uber Eats" for the 2020/21 & 2021/22 seasons following the conclusion of a naming rights deal.

Back to back promotions for Real Mallorca as they overturned a 1st leg 2-0 defeat with a 3-0 win last night against Deportivo in the 2nd leg of the Spanish Segunda Division play off final.

It wasn't that long ago that Deportivo were in the Champs League and getting beyond the group stages.

Didn't they get to the final by beating ac milan who had dida, Cafu, Stam, maldini etc

Edit: just checked. Best them 4-0 to win 5-4 on agg.

Also pfucking :shock: at ac milans team. Genuinely forgot how good they were.
Kaka, gattuso, shevchenko, nesta, seedorf, dida, cafu, maldini, pirlo, inzhagi

Mallorca weren't awful either - Samuel Eto'o spent a few years there, and I'm sure they picked up a cup or two.

in Dec 2018 Winston Biscuit Palermo in Serie B purchased by a company in London for €10 with a further branding purchase agreement which guarantees the new owners have to put another €22.8M into the club to get them to a healthy financial position.


Palermo booted down to the 3rd division after financial miss management

They finished 3rd in Serie B so are in the play offs, and now there is debate around the format of the play offs. Palermo also say they are appealing and want to be in the play offs while that goes on


Palermo fail to get their registration papers submitted in time to play in the 3rd tier (due to arguing with the Italian FA about what div they would start in) and are booted down to the 4th division

When Palermo were dropped to the bottom of the league, Venezia were informed that this meant they did not have to take part in the relegation play off as they were essentially bumped up a place in the table. Their season ended and the players went off on holiday. Venezia were then contacted by the Italian FA who said they had decided that they did have to take part in the play off, the players are recalled from holiday and made to play a 2 legged game against Salernitana of the 3rd tier. Salernitana win on penalties and Venezia are relegated.......only for the Italian FA to decide that Venezia can actually stay in Serie B due to other clubs having problems and not being able to take part in Serie B :lol:

looking up the last matches in Serie B it looks like there was a month between Venezia's last league game (and them going off on their holidays) and the play offs

Imagine that, a month of partying and beering it up and then getting a call to say 'sorry lads we got it wrong, there is a match on this weekend and if you lose you are relegated'

f*cking lol

CAS rules that due to breaching FFP AC Milan are not to take part in UEFA competitions for the upcoming season

They finished 5th last season getting themselves a Europa League spot so it means that Roma go straight into the group stages and Torino enter the Europa League qualifying round

Enric Gallego was an amateur footballer until January when at the age of 32 he signed his first professional contract by joining Huesca. They got relegated but he showed enough for Getafe to sign him for €6M and give him a 3 year contract. Getafe finished 5th in La Liga last season

quite the dream scenario

Not European but pretty cool headline from the bbc about Yokohoma of the J2 league

Yokohama FC sign Shunsuke Nakamura, 41, to join Kazuyoshi Miura, 52

had a look at this as its quite the story. He was banging in the goals off and on in the Spanish 3rd tier. 101 in 198 games for one club, 25 in 33 as he got promoted with Extramedura.

It might just be a quirk of how the Spanish leagues work - continental leagues are semi-pro much earlier than in UK.

As good a place as any for it - Marseille started their pre-season last night at Accrington Stanley. And lost 2-1, despite fielding a strong side that include Dmitri Payet.
