It's unfair that the Czech leagues, the Ukranian Leagues et cetera have smaller populations yet teams get into European competitions and compete quite well. Especially Shaktar who we know have had quite good European travels in the past decade or so.

Are you not a fan of olympics or any other international competition then? Size and population will always be a factor, maybe it is inherently unfair but it is was creates great sport. You had Denamrk winning the Euros in the 90s, Greece did quite well at Euro 2012, Iceland have done well at major tournaments in the last few years. Underdogs always have a chance.

The UEFA Nations League has some what replaced the boring and meaningless international friendlies we have however, I welcome that.
That's all domestic and they have to go through a lot of qualifying to get spots.

I don't mind individual sports at Olympics.

Well obviously that's domestic competition, that's what I meant.

If you don't like the idea of international competition because it is unfair on smaller countries then that is basically a huge amount of sport out the window. Which is weird.

Have you ever actually been to either of those teams' stadiums? Doubt it.

Paul Scholes is by far and away the most overrated player of the past 20 years.

Now to be clear, he was a very good player but his actual level ended up being massively overrated once he played centre mid in his late 30’s.

Not all sports have the same ecosystem as football does, in terms of domestic club wealth. For example, international cricket will always be better quality than domestic cricket.

I told this joke to an Arsenal fan in my class:
Liverpool is 1st and Arsenal is 10th now. I always get the top marks, so I am way ahead in first. Your marks are so low that you dropped a lot. Study hard to get into Europe next year,

That isn’t an unpopular football opinion but I think you could actually be a genius troll.

Ramos is the best defender of the 21st century.

Algeria will win the Qatar World Cup.

Jose Mourinho has had a more accomplished managerial career than Pep Guardiola.

Michael Owen is England's best player of the last 25 years. Beckham by comparison, was largely terrible and lives off the free-kick against Greece and a pretty awful penalty against Argentina.

We should have more journalists working as pundits on TV. Too many ex-players making a living mumbling out dreary platitudes.

The season should have ended at all levels and been decided on points per game.

People who support a club in their country’s top league and also support their national team are hypocrites because they pretend to cheer for players they hate the rest of the time.

This always seems to be unpopular despite being unarguably true.
