    Liverpool vs. Ajax could be a great game. Liverpool vs. Spurs would be a great game for scouse.

    True, but the 3-0 Barca win was much closer than it seemed. Liverpool squandered some chances, and Messi showed his class. Barca was lucky to come away with that strong of a result. I think Liverpool moving on is justified, as they were clearly the better team in the tie. For Liverpool to do what they did without Salah AND Firmino.....

    Ajax/Spurs will be huge underdogs, and deservedly so. But you never know.

    Here is a question: If Liverpool wins the Champions League, as they should, and Man City wins the league, it would be a huge collapse if they don't, would they want to trade places? Man City desperately wants the UCL, and Liverpool wants the league more. I'm not talking about the players here, but more the fan bases.

    Honestly, for Liverpool to lose the UCL or Man City to lose the league would be a pretty big fuck up for either. I guess if Harry Kane is fully fit for the final Spurs might have a shot, and I guess you have to give Ajax a shot, they have gotten this far, but the reds have to be very heavy favorites. And Man City, if they can't beat BHA, even on the road, in their last game of the year with everything to play for......That would be pathetic.

    EPL championship translates to more local bragging rights. Fans are always going to want that first and foremost. All four teams remaining in the CL conversation and both L and City have a lot to be proud of. It's almost a given that both will win this weekend. Only real surprise would be if they both lost, but table stays the same in that event, just like if they both win as expected.

    Just watched Pool-Barca, and am also stunned. Just shocking.

    Chelsea ban upheld. Hazard has a foot out the door. Will he still go? Obviously Real needs him. If he goes Chelsea is in trouble with no way to replace him, though that might mean we see a lot of Pulisic next year...

    Iím a Chelsea fan. I canít believe they made CL. Not from winning for sure but for others meltdowns.

    Hazard is gone for sure. He served that team extremely well. He was almost all of their production and will be fully lost without him. No one can replace him but maybe they can learn to play a team style with sarri. Who knows.

    They are filled with overachieving undertalent and underachieving talent. Depends on coaching and formation on how they perform. I. E. Wingbacks Moses and Alonso. Great under Contes system that had them push up and overwhelm defenses when they had the ball. Alonso looks like he has his shoes tied in 1v.1 situations.

    Grudgingly have to admit Liverpool and spurs both look great and deserve all they get.

    Spurs made lots of smart decisions with coaching, personnel and sales.

    Liverpool got huge support from BSG and followed the same path to success as the Red Sox. Formerly great sports franchises that have fallen but just need to be rebuilt and invested in. Smart moves.

    Sorry. End of rant.

    This CL match is off to a hot start. Ajax scoring in the first 4 minutes, Son hitting the post 2 minutes later....
    Tottenham need a few goals now to advance.

    Not so exciting today, Arsenal made easy work of Valencia (7-3 Agg).
    Chelsea on the other hand had to go to Shootouts to beat Frankfurt. Game was okay, maybe it only seemed okay because I had to watch it on a Spanish Channel.
    All English Champions League Final and all English Europa League Final.

    A crazy scenario of Arsenal winning Europa would qualify 5 EPL teams for Champions league next season, and put 7th place Wolverhampton Wanderers into Europa League next year. Pretty amazing for a newly promoted team.

    Any problem being a sticky Wicket is a good contributions...

    and really this year has beena constant kick in the balls for United fans.
    City win the league, Scousers likely the CL.
    all BPL Europa and CL finals, likely 5 BPL teams in CL next year and United on the outside looking in.
    fucks sake
