Yeah, and people ask why players sign for these teams....

Galatasaray really is one of the sides with the best atmosphere in Europe. Top 5 for sure.

Arguably:
Marseille
Galatasaray
Feyenoord
Red Star
Dortmund

then of course you have Besiktas, Ajax, Celtic, Partizan (when good), St-Etienne, somewhere in Greece (but not presently imo) and the Meazza by either Milano side but mostly on big days as it loses from its strength when not full. Real Madrid in the Bernabeu used to be included but now apart from the renovation, they don't actually have their ultras groups present so it's more like Barcelona as a tourist affair. From Spain I'd take Bilbao, Atletico, Sevilla, Betis and Valencia for sure at the top. The three main Portuguese sides also have solid atmosphere. In Italy there's also Napoli, the Genova sides, Roma, Lazio, Fiorentina, Verona and Atalanta, plus Lecce, Salernitana and Cagliari from the south and islands in Serie A. Torino and Bologna are currently lagging.


Some players, not at any moment in their career, just want to be part of such a situation. Most don't even know it until they live it. But having this kind of passion at the stadium typically means there's a lot of pressure outside of it. And players are professionals, so most would rather get a highly paid chill job in some English side where no one will care if they go out every day for drinks after losing to their arch rivals.

They spend 50M on these two jokers... and you can add another 20M for a one season wonder goalkeeper.

Should have kicked the fans out after the first incident. Morons.

Such a nice day for football with Madrileño derby, Le Classique (PSG vs OM), De Klassieker (Ajax vs Feyenoord), North London derby (Arsenal vs Tottenham), Anderlecht vs Club Brugge (is there a name for this one?), Copenhagen derby (Brondby vs FC Kobehavn), Prague derby (Slavia vs Sparta), Limassol derby (Apollon vs AEL) and a big game in Austria between Rapid Wien and Sturm Graz.

Maybe I missed something.


Perhaps you noticed a trend here as well. Whenever there's a big derby somewhere, there's usually a lot more to follow around Europe. We'd have Panathinaikos vs AEK as well if they weren't so petty :lol:
