On The Continent: A generational Barcelona election, Jorge Sampaoli’s combustible return, and Schalke plumb new depths

by Football Ramble Presents

Some promising performances on the pitch haven’t drawn too much attention away from the chaos unfolding behind the scenes at Barcelona. Join Dotun, Andy and David Cartlidge for the latest on the club’s ongoing boardroom scandal, as we preview the runners and riders in Sunday’s momentous presidential election. 

Staying with clubs on the brink of collapse, we try to work out which (if any) staff weren’t sacked following Schalke’s 5-1 loss to Stuttgart and assess Marseille’s latest appointment. That’s right: the ever-combustible Jorge Sampaoli has been appointed to bring a stoic calm to the Riviera, presumably by whipping the fans into a riotous frenzy.
