Good Morning Fear The Wall!
If you were in any doubt about how badly Florentino Perez and his merry band of rich idiots botched this whole Super League thing, critics have not only managed to turn it on its head and see the league canned, but have now turned their attention to the recently agreed changes to the Champions League. UEFA are now facing pressure to get rid of the coefficient places that have been agreed upon in the Champions League.
NEW: UEFA to come under pressure now from leagues and new-look ECA to scrap Champions League coefficient places from 2024: https://t.co/fp5JMPZenl— Martyn Ziegler (@martynziegler) April 21, 2021
Florentino and the boys must be feeling very silly around about now. Maybe he will do less interviews declaring himself the savior of football?
Goat Dies, Aged 14
A goat is dead this is very sad news that poor dead goat.
We are going to miss you, Hennes VIII.— 1. FC Cologne (@fckoeln_en) April 21, 2021
Our loveable goat, who was #effzeh mascot from 2008 until 2019, had to be put down due to health reasons. He was 14 years old.
Rest in peace, Hennes! ❤ pic.twitter.com/3P77QkujGf
Taken from us too soon.
Ryan Mason Becomes Youngest Premier League Manager Ever
To finish today’s Daily Bee, have a nice story to lift your spirits. Unlike that Super League and that stupid goat, Ryan Mason is not dead. He is only the interim manager of Tottenham Hotspur, instead. At 29 years old, that makes Ryan the youngest manager in Premier League history!

Mason, a former Tottenham player, retired at age 26 after he suffered a head injury playing for Hull City. He fractured his skull when clashing heads with Gary Cahill, which required 14 metal plates, 28 screws, and 45 staples. He was unfortunately forced to retire on the advice for medical experts. However, with the end of Mason’s playing career came the start of his coaching career, and he has taken up several coaching roles at Tottenham before stepping in as the interim first team manager until the end of the season.
Mason took charge for his first game last night against Southampton, claiming a 2-1 victory through Gareth Bale & Son Heung-min goals. It’s a really nice story, and I’m pleased to see he has found success following the sad end to his playing career. Hopefully this is the start of a long management career in which he never beats Southampton again.

If you could kill 100 of any type of animal, what would you choose and how? I’d like to smash 100 rats with a claw hammer.
