Will Sevilla be as threatening without Carlos Bacca?
AKA Pedro's Audition

It's today? Haven't these things always happened on Fridays?
That's what I thought. Usually before the CL group stage draw?

Anyway, didn't Sevilla win it the last time these two teams contested the Super cup?

Krohn-Dehli and Konoplyanka are great signings for Sevilla. N'Zonzi is sick but Konoplyanka should play a part, he was immense in Europe last season. Also interested to see how Immobile does but Gameiro will probably be first choice. They also did well to hold onto Krychowiak, he would have been a massive loss and was probably their best player last season. For Barcelona we have the usual suspects.

note: Gameiro is not a new signing btw.

Apparently Sevilla's squad had an outbreak of salmonella infection after a barbeque. They claim to have no defenders fit.

Sevilla players 'hit by salmonella poisoning' after team barbecue ahead of Barcelona clash


Sevilla boss Unai Emery faces a defensive crisis ahead of tonight's UEFA Super Cup clash with Barcelona.


The La Liga side, who successfully retained the Europa League in May, do not have a single fit centre-back for the clash following a team barbecue at the weekend.

I'll wait for the lineups first.

People reporting Pedro asked to leave and won't start. Well, it is done then.

Firstly why do BT have an advert every 10 seconds.

Secondly what the hell is going on with the singing and timing?! What a mess!

Thirdly why is the volume so damn quiet?!
