    Looks like you'll be allowed to sell beer at Champions League and Europa League games going forward :)

    Won't make much difference in England sadly as you still won't be able to drink in your seat but I was thinking during the World Cup how ridiculous it is to see so many drinking beers given UEFA don't allow it.

    I’m not too bothered about drinking in seats tbh, don’t get me wrong it would be great but I’ve never known any different. Champions league games without drink though were shit, especially if you don’t have time to have a drink beforehand

    Can at least neck an overpriced pint of Carlsberg in the concourse before getting to my seat rather than having to last on the ones from the King Harry I spose.

    Just because your yard dogs qualify for neither! ;)

    Today RB Salzburg begins the 11th try to qualify for the Champions League, not the usual "Tu felix Austria" story :D . But last season they had a very good run in the Europa League so maybe it's their year now ;). Viel Glück!

    Looked really good last year, not a fan of how the RB clubs were formed but still very entertaining to watch.

    Atletico just beat Real 4-2 in the Super Cup.

    Going to be a frustrating season for Real I think. Still haven't properly replaced Ronaldo
