Champions League 2018/19


#542

A lot of made of Liverpool’s long wait for a league title and the pressure, media attendtion etc that comes with it and it’s a valid point (being from Mayo I know) but equally City have zero European history and pedigree and until/if they win a European Cup then there will be pressure there too.


#543

Potential shock in the Bernabeau. Build-up to Ajax’s 2nd goal is brilliant.


#544

Meanwhile George calling Aurier Sissoko the whole time.

Nice love in for Hamilton here among the media luvvies … George included :pensive:


#545

3 times now Aurier is Sissoko


#546

Wouldn’t occur to Tommy that the commentators are probably supplied with all this info.


#547

Great goal , love to see Ajax knock Real out.


#548

I’d cheer for Isis against Real, they’re the season ticket office of football.


#549

Real going out. Not enough evidence to overturn this, surely.


#550

Taking way too long. A disgrace if this is ruled out.


#551

Justice done. Tadic looks a different player to the plodder he was at Southampton.


#552

VAR ridiculous - surprised they didn’t give the decision to RM though - just cos they’re RM. Great goal.


#553

Wow wow wow


#554

Great stuff


#555

Madrid missing Ramos presence as he is good at refereeing games.


#556

Great to see his and RM’s cynicism getting properly punished. At least he will be available for the next round…Oh wait.


#557

I m surprised he didn’t overturn his own suspension. That’s the type of thing he seems to manage to get done.


#558

That result will massage CR7’s ego no end.


#559

The problem is not that CR7 left, the problem is they haven’t bought anyone of note for 3 years. Benzema is there long enough to know he is not going to score 25-30 goals a year and Madrid need a striker capable of doing that, you are never going to replace Ronaldo, but at least get someone that can do a job.


#560

Harry Kane next year do you think?


#561

None of what you say (no matter how much is true) invalidates my previous point. :sunglasses:
