The Depths of Insanity Saturday

Oh, have you not been playing Football Manager 2020 with the intensity and the involuntary spasming of a prime crickhead?  PLEBIANS. I am as terrible at this as I am GAMBLOR.  PLEASE SEND OPIATES. Anyway, the Central European paradise that is unquestionably Belarus still rules our sportsball desert world.  You get a

All Belarus, All The Time Lesser Footy Open Thread

Dudes, it's all Belarus' world now, we just livin' in it. All of the various second and third world-ish football associations might be late to the cancellation party - but even Brasil state torneos and Ukraine have gone dark now.  The only thing remotely approaching first division footy?  The Belarus Premier

February Bleakness Lesser Footy Open Thread

Yes, I binge watched all of the final Bojack episodes yesterday.  But, I'd be depressed about entering February anyway.  BLECH.  Without spoilers...fuck me, the penultimate episode should have been it.  Even my goddamned depression is disappointing. Let's watch some footy, shall we? Leicester and Chelsea kick things off (7:30, NBCSN), and I
