Football at the bottom of the epl is always the best.
And Burnley managed to rescue a point. Leeds really are up against it now. *smile*, *smile* *smile*!True, epic comeback. They are stuck with Frank Lampard now.
Shoutout to Patrick Viera as manager of Crystal Palace, done amazing.
On another note. If anyone ever was in any doubt as to why for much of it's history, Scotland has been invaded by and ruled by others. The common theme is that they aren't a united bunch, they are too preoccupied fighting and squabbling tribally among themselves. Football is just the modern manifestation of and outlet for this age old tendency.
Looking at the reaction in Scottish social media to Rangers losing the Europa final in a dramatic penalty shootout. Most of Scotland is jubilant. And that isn't just the Catholic aligned people. It's across the board. Had it been Celtic, the reaction would be similar, but just slightly different tilt of people celebrating their misery. It seems with Scots, if their specific tribe can't be on top, they don't want anyone else on top. I'm sure it goes back to the tribal clan tendencies anciently ingrained in the Scottish psyche.
English football, Italian and Spanish all have some of this going on. But having been to games in Scotland and England. The hatred and contempt is so much more intense in Scotland. You can cut it with a knife. I went to a Hearts Vs Rangers game once. Sat near the segregation line. These two are supposedly notional brother clubs in the whole Protestant v Catholic divide. But there was absolutely no feeling of solidarity. It felt like something could kick off imminently the entire game and after the game.
