The final four of the Copa del Rey. Two teams who have never won it (Grenada and Mirandes, the latter of which is a second tier side.) And two teams who haven’t won it since the 80s (Bilbao and Sociedad).

Real, Barcelona and Valencia, who won it last year, all lost this week.

That’s kind of cool.

Actually good friends with Louis. Been on loan in Madison for a while now.  Getting the minutes he didn't in Memphis.

City banned from Europe for 2 seasons due to FFP violations.  Can appeal to court of arbitration, but big if upheld.

PSG and Juve next?

Tough situation for UEFA; while there's zero doubt in my mind that City has falsified it's financial records, there also zero doubt in my mind that nearly every (if not all) big European clubs have done the same thing (albeit not to as severe of a degree), and I really don't think this ban will do anything to scare them off from continuing to do that.  I think it'll likely get reduced, but in the end, won't really change the way that these clubs operate.  UEFA can't ban everybody, because they need the big name clubs in their competitions.

Reading that the Premier League will likely dock them points too based on innaccurate financial information on the PL licensing application.  However the PL could, but very likely would NOT, kick them out of the league.  And according to the Football League's rules, any club that is evicted from the PL for those reasons, would have to start in League Two.  The fourth level of the English football system.

Which would be hilarious.  But won't happen.
