Nah.  This forum has a number of ghosts, doing a lot of reading but no writing (well, not on the forum itself)...  E.g. look at the number of views on each topic, compared to the number of replies.  The funny thing is that they think we don't know they're there.

Hmm... not noticed it in a while but those numbers definitely stand out when you pay attention (because on the surface there's only something like 10 active users at most). Obviously nowhere near the full amount, but how much of it can be attributed to those active users browsing when not logged in, I've done that from time to time especially when the site's been unstable.

But I'm not paranoid, of course not, now someone help me delete all the ideas I've posted on here before, I can't have anyone beating me to the punch when it comes to my most innovative creation... drunk basketball is a million-dollar idea and I'll be kicking myself if some ghost takes it from me smiley: indifferent.

I just had a random train of thought one day (as I am liable to do), wondering what would be the sport that is most clearly affected by all players being inebriated, while still remaining somewhat playable. Basketball seemed the obvious choice, must be all that 'bouncing a ball' that would be 10x more difficult without basic-level hand-eye co-ordination.

Has plenty of potential entertainment value, it would just be work trying to find the magic formula of how much alcohol it takes to get that 'overly sloppy' effect without going into 'blackout drunk' territory... but if you want to rent out a basketball court, buy about £50-100 of booze, and a bring bunch of lads that don't mind making a t*t of themselves (also a trained medical professional on standby smiley: ohwell), then I'm absolutely up for running that experiment... for science and all that.

Rummenigge here, calling off his threat of a European Super League (until the next lot of Champions League format negotiations).

Interesting mindset there, apparently making the Champions League more of a big club-favouring closed shop creates 'emotion and strength', while international breaks are for 'finances and politics' smiley: indifferent. Someone should trace this man's family tree and see if any Rummenigge in the past had a relative named Drumpf...

Meanwhile, the 'smaller leagues' (i.e. everything from Ligue 1 downwards) seem to be preparing their last stand...

Pachuca and Tigres, two Mexican clubs, will compete for the CONCACAF berth. The Mexican teams have never excelled in the Club World Cup: their best results are two bronze medals (Necaxa in 2000 and Monterrey in 2012).

Also the 2017 OFC Champions League final will see the duel between two clubs from the same country: Auckland City vs. Team Wellington, both from New Zealand.

Pachuca have conquered the 2016/17 CONCACAF Champions League and will represent that confederation in the 2017 FIFA Club World Cup. After losing the CONCACAF Champions League final last year and this year, and the Copa Libertadores final in 2015, Tigres begin to be afflicted by the so-called The Eternal Second syndrome...

So apparently like a lot of things in this world, someone else has already had the idea of drunk sport:

Well done to them for trying, but it's still not basketball, plus I wouldn't want to be playing any experiments like that in Norway, the price of a drink over there is ridiculous...

So, for the first time, a European club will compete in the Club World Cup for the second consecutive year.
Well-deserved success for Real Madrid, in the first half the game was extremely balanced, but in the second half they dominated.
I wouldn't have expected the physical drop of Juventus in the second half, as high rhythms have always been an important component of their successes this and in the recent seasons.
One of the main winners was coach Zidane, who learned some precious tactical strategies during his years in Italy: he put Casemiro and Marcelo on a man-to-man marking respectively on Paulo Dybala and on Dani Alves. This way he neutralized two of the most dangerous sources of play of Juventus. Moreover, if Gareth Bale had been at his 100%, Real Madrid's win would have been even larger, in my opinion.

So moving onto next season's Champions League... looks like UEFA have inadvertently added a touch of kerosene to an already potentially-flammable situation. Thought they were usually cautious to a fault with these draws?
