Watch ‘This Week In Soccer’: Atletico Madrid, Champions League and Diving [VIDEO]

Ladies and gents, we’ll be broadcasting a live episode of This Week In Soccer today (and every Monday) at 5:30pm ET/10:30pm BST.

Today’s panelists are Laurence McKenna, Kartik Krishnaiyer and Richard Farley. The topics that will be discussed are:

1. How would the emergence of Atlético change Spanish football? How important is it for Spain that Simeone’s project persists?

2. Should Cup winners get spots in Europa/CONCACAF Champions League?

3. Diving and re-legislating diving … the use of video to enact retrospective punishment on divers (and other infractions)

Watch live via this web page, our Google Plus page or our YouTube channel.

While watching the show, post your comments or questions — and the best ones will be read out on air.

    A Brit wearing a Germany shirt? Churchill would turn in his grave. Goodnight all.

  2. Anthony says:

    On the diving topic, for me it comes down to one thing. Diving is a pervasive problem throughout the sport. Retrospectively banning proved divers would go a long way to getting rid of the practice. There are benefits to the punishment outside the 90 minutes.

    Note: I’m talking about diving not embellishment. Exaggerating contact will be much harder to get rid of.
