Football: United Heartbreak



Europa League Final


Villareal

Manchester United


After Full-time and extra-time: 1-1

Villareal win 11-10 on penalties


This is why the ill-fated European Super League cannot become a reality. If the so-called ‘big clubs’ of European football had their way, the little dudes would never contest a final of anything; not the Champions League, not the Europa League and not even the upcoming Europa Conference League, itself created as a sop to some of those smaller clubs.


The reality of it is that all three competitions, in today’s world, exist for a select few - in their eyes at least. Of those, the most elite of them would be found in the first mentioned, with a guaranteed place down the line for those who didn’t reach as far as the final of it.
