Chapecoense goalkeeper and defender survived the crash

75 people, including players and staff of the Brazilian first division football team Chapecoense, have died when a plane crashed in remote Colombian mountains on Monday night.

The team were on their way from Bolivia to Medellin International Airport ahead of the first leg of the Copa Sudamericana final with Colombian side Atletico Nacional.
It is understood that just six passengers - including three players - have survived, with defender Alan Ruschel and goalkeepers Jackson Follmann and Danilo reported to be among those pulled alive from the wreckage.

Chapecoense players who didn't travel with the team in their dressing room. Can't imagine how they're feeling right now.

Clubs that have never been relegated in professional football

Clubs that have never been relegated in professional football

The La Liga was formed in 1929, and since then, three clubs have been in the top flight consecutively. The big clubs: Real Madrid and Barcelona, are obviously two, and Athletic Bilbao, who have seen some close calls in recent years, are the third.

The Bungesliga’s first season was in 1963-1964, and HAMBURG are the only team of that top flight to remain there until this day. Bayern Munich, for example, only joined in 1965, only not facing relegation since. Bayer Leverkusen haven’t been relegated since making it to the Bundesliga for the first time in 1979, and Wolfsburg have been in the top flight since 1997.


Since the start of the Premier League in 1992, seven clubs have never faced the drop: Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United, Everton, Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea.

It was top notch entertainment and it's going to a top notch night of fights. Toddler? Embarrassing? Stupid? WWE? We aren't here to watch a grannies meeting, we're here to watch history and all you bitter jealous bums better get used to it. People always find something to complain about hahaha. Imagine watching this and having such a negative opinion on it, you feel you have to write on Youtube comments about your concerns. When I watched this, the hype train was full steam ahead for me. I didn't care about how it makes Conor look, I don't care about how professional or non-professional it is, it is entertainment gold and to top it off we're going to see them fight, what could anyone who isn't miserable honestly complain about!?
