    Yes... They even said as much. They said they sacked him because he only informed them 5 minutes before going public.

    He's a businessman. What's to say he wouldn't make the right choice when in office? He's not kept abreast of military intelligence in the Middle East because he doesn't have access to it and perhaps doesn't have the time to be. But that's not to say he wouldn't make an astute decision when he has all the facts in front of him.

    Made North America great again, but how will the fans cross the border?

    BTW its pretty $#@!ed up imho. USA is big enough and already did host a fantastic WC. Now they have even more stadiums.

    Imagine flying from the north of Canada to the south of Mexico - acclimatization would be a bigger issue than in Russia.

    Did they pay the release clause without the FA knowing? Maybe the FA is incompetent and you can only blame yourself if there is a release clause.

    Real simply informed them they'd pay the release.

    Weird that you can make an official announcement without actually paying the release clause.

    The $#@!-up is making it public. I don't think Spanish FA would've went mental if only rumors leaked that he's going to coach RM after WC, especially if they'd been informed properly. So RM didn't actually need to make it publicly known to everyone that they've poached the NTs coach, they just decided they would because they are assholes.

    If Madrid sent the Spanish FA a letter of intent in a specific form, that is binding to them. They have to pay. And it's Madrid, so it's obvious they are able to pay it.

    No. They felt they had to be involved way sooner. And they're right. It's outrageous behaviour from Madrid and Lopetegui to inform them only 5 minutes before going public. Lopetegui tried to blindside them and make it impossible to get sacked, because of the World Cup.

    and yes it looks like Lopetegui was hoping to have his cake and eat it too.

    Yeah, if they were involved sooner maybe they would've allowed it to go public, maybe not. But anyways, it's a fact that RM and their new coach acted like real assholes here.

    Apart from the team atmosphere Spain will be just fine btw. They have an identity, they know what is expected of them in terms of tactics.

    Of course. I understand Madrid wanted to make it public. I don't understand they were so callous towards the FA. Honestly all of this sounds as some sort of personal feud between Madrid directors and the FA.

    Long live corruption. It's the biggest disgrace in a long list. Best thing are those people still defending it

    Man World Cup in Straya Country. Bondi Beach, Australian Chicks, fist fights with drunk Bruces and kangaroos. It would be an all tiem good fun. Only Europe (not eastern) can match and surpass Aussie World Cup.
    Much Love, bitches!
