Barcelona's schedule is particularly dry as it will see them travel from California to Texas to California in a week.

I hope the hotdog munchers boycott this out of shame at their previous actions.

So they might be objectively terrible at badge design but at least Leeds United have some innovation in the post-season tour department...

Going to a relatively untapped (in football terms) area that's currently morally questionable and with fixtures lined up against both a League All-Star side and the local national team I can wholeheartedly say I half-agree with this entire thing...

Are you referring to Yorkshire?

Also I'm not sure that watching Leeds United is the best way to encourage people to play/like football.   it would be like trying to encourage people to drive by waching Car Crash TV.

Well, one person does not a region's morals make, but you know...

Appears to be less of a 'bringing football to local fans' thing than it is 'part of owner's backroom business interests' thing. Any new Leeds fans emerging from this event will be a surprising bonus, but most of all just surprising...

I can't believe it's in anyone's interests (business or otherwise) to make Leeds play in Yangon.  

I wonder which was the last British team to play there... I recall Middlesex Wanderers in 1998.

After losing the UEFA Champions League rights to EA Sports, Konami decide the best response for Pro Evolution Soccer is to give the cynical marketing goblet of cash some money and legitimacy 😔.

Not sure whether I would or wouldn't "PES in their goblet", the situation created an obvious pun where the options are confusing...

👍

Can't lie I have before, but most of the time it was down to 3 simple factors:
  • Do I have the channel they're showing it on?
  • Is it on at a sociable hour?
  • Is my club involved in the game?
Factors 1 and 2 are very present this season so any overriding interest I had in factor 3 will have to be saved for the highlights (hopefully through an unofficial source, of course).
