Find me another platform where I can watch them, being the only provider gives them the perfect opportunity to price gouge the customer who has no choice but to pay it
Don't like it, ditch it.

Otherwise, live with it.

You don't really have any other options.

Was paid up until June 2023 days my account. For $70. Don’t know how. But come august 1 what happens to that sub? Does new price override it?

Seeing as you have paid the yearly fee and they have taken your money I don't see how they could turn around and disregard that. Stick to your guns if they try and slug you again. I believe anyone who bought the yearly deal was told in the t&cs that it would auto renew on your sub anniversary date unless you cancelled it.

I'm half-following the women's Euros, and right now, the Lionesses are putting the men's team to shame. Attacking football, effective attacking football, and they're playing like they're enjoying themselves. The men's team could take lessons ahead of the World Cup.

The mens team made the final of the Euros as well.

Yes, I am aware, but over the last year, the men's team had gotten worse and worse, culminating in several weak showings in the Nations League, and a thrashing by Hungary. I don't have much confidence in them, not least of all when we're relying on Maguire to be a defensive pillar.

I doubt any of them really wanted to be playing Nations League games at the end of a long season. They are just glorified friendlies

True, but our level of performance was very, very poor. We are not preforming like a team of winners. I don't care if Southgate were to muster a series of 1 nil wins and take us to glory, but we're not capable of that, and the team seems too timid about going for the win.

The Lions can take lessons from how the Lionesses played.

Lionesses also had no spurs players

Hungary's just reclaiming their rightful place as the footballing powerhouse of the world.

The 1954 World Cup is fascinating. Hungary beat West Germany 8-3, only to lose the final to them 3-2, leading 2-0 very early on. We could have lived in a world where Hungary has won a World Cup. :(

For a while, they had one of the all-time greats. Puskas deserved a World Cup winner's medal.
