Has a lot of bylines in his bio but not one permanent employment.

When you see the state of click bait journalism in the world today, if you can’t even be employed in that world that says a lot about your abilities.
Whines about petro clubs but has Al Jazeera in his bylines.

How many of the English sports tabloid media are desperate for an all English final?

I imagine those moaning about this season's semi-final line up want the traditional Bayern, Barcelona and Real...with either United or Liverpool as the English representative.

1997/98 was when Real Madrid won the Champions League for the first time in 32 years, since then there has only been:
One season when none of the 5 teams mentioned above have appeared in the semi-finals
Two seasons none of them appeared in the final
Five seasons where none of them won it.

It's now 14 seasons in a row that at least one of Bayern, Barcelona or Real have reached the Champions League semi-final (06/07 was the last time none of them appeared in the last 4). Only once in the last 10 seasons have none of the three reached the final.

This is what City, PSG and Chelsea have had to break.

Take a wild guess.......
Was it CBS? Jim Proudfoot & Andy Townsend?

I remember Townsend shouting “Get in” when Sergio completed his hat-trick against the German rags a few years ago, so he always gets well received by me, and Guy Mowbray loves us. His bio says he’s a York City fan, but he could pass for a Blue!

Mind blowing stats!
And then the media have the cheek to say this years semi-finalists are so predictable!! Hilarious really!
