Let the round of 32 clusterfuck begin

tayto fan (Michael B), Thursday, 19 February 2015 20:13 (four years ago) link

Nice enough finish from Soldado.

Rainbow DAESH (ShariVari), Thursday, 19 February 2015 20:30 (four years ago) link

Stuart Armstrong! Holy fuck!

paolo, Thursday, 19 February 2015 20:35 (four years ago) link

i think im watching the wrong game

tayto fan (Michael B), Thursday, 19 February 2015 20:37 (four years ago) link

hi lads been on spurs thread lol at us but still a very good performance this tbh

local eire man (darraghmac), Thursday, 19 February 2015 20:50 (four years ago) link

these matias set pieces are pretty good

ogmor, Thursday, 19 February 2015 21:13 (four years ago) link

these paulinho ones not

local eire man (darraghmac), Thursday, 19 February 2015 21:13 (four years ago) link

Townsend and walker just high performing versions of themselves tonight. no end product whatsoever.

local eire man (darraghmac), Thursday, 19 February 2015 21:18 (four years ago) link

jordan ibe has been great tonight again

tayto fan (Michael B), Thursday, 19 February 2015 21:50 (four years ago) link

oh hey paolo, been missing your input on anglo-scots club relations recently

r|t|c, Thursday, 19 February 2015 22:24 (four years ago) link

Some comedy stuff from Celtic tonight but I still think Inter are there for the taking.

Romeo Daltrey (Tom D.), Thursday, 19 February 2015 22:36 (four years ago) link

Some comedy stuff, as usual in Europe, that is.

Romeo Daltrey (Tom D.), Thursday, 19 February 2015 22:37 (four years ago) link

So shit from Soldado.... absolutely criminal for a striker to screw up a 2 on 1

JLB Credit (Jack BS), Thursday, 26 February 2015 18:35 (four years ago) link

Fucking hell Fazio, of all the players on the pitch to give a comedy assist to.

Another goal would lead to extra time now and basically kill our final on Sunday, so I dunno how I feel about the rest of the game now.

Matt DC, Thursday, 26 February 2015 19:15 (four years ago) link

extra time for liverpool, not good for the game against man city either

tayto fan (Michael B), Thursday, 26 February 2015 19:54 (four years ago) link

lol smh itv4 cutting out just in time for the pens

r|t|c, Thursday, 26 February 2015 20:33 (four years ago) link

impressive penos all round so far

tayto fan (Michael B), Thursday, 26 February 2015 20:39 (four years ago) link

Errrrrr

Romeo Daltrey (Tom D.), Thursday, 26 February 2015 20:40 (four years ago) link

Lol

Rainbow DAESH (ShariVari), Thursday, 26 February 2015 20:41 (four years ago) link

....and Lovren blasts it a mile wide

tayto fan (Michael B), Thursday, 26 February 2015 20:41 (four years ago) link

why Lovren to take that peno? idgi

tayto fan (Michael B), Thursday, 26 February 2015 20:42 (four years ago) link

Lovren eclipses Carroll as worst signing ever in an impressively quick time.

ewar woowar (or something), Thursday, 26 February 2015 20:47 (four years ago) link

hes fairly bad alright

tayto fan (Michael B), Thursday, 26 February 2015 20:50 (four years ago) link

Torino down to ten men after half an hour. 2 justified yellows. They'd completely stifled Zenit with ease until then.

pandemic, Thursday, 12 March 2015 17:30 (four years ago) link

Hulk gets dispossessed more than any player I've ever seen.

pandemic, Thursday, 12 March 2015 17:36 (four years ago) link

Witzel 1-0. Torino have been defending the width of the box quite well, but that was neat play by Zenit.

"He can argue all he wants he has no argument there" - Danny Higginbotham.

pandemic, Thursday, 12 March 2015 17:45 (four years ago) link

palacio 1-0 after Schurrle sloppily gives the ball away. Tentatively suggest this Wolfsburg vs Inter game will be an end to end classic.

pandemic, Thursday, 12 March 2015 18:08 (four years ago) link

Schurrle has been astonishingly bad thus far.

pandemic, Thursday, 12 March 2015 18:21 (four years ago) link

Naldo powers in a header from a de bruyne corner.1-1.

my word rodriguez has put in a couple of absolutely beautiful crosses

pandemic, Thursday, 12 March 2015 18:30 (four years ago) link

de bruyne 2-1. awful 'pass' from inter keeper straight to vierinha on to kdb, goal

pandemic, Thursday, 12 March 2015 19:22 (four years ago) link

de bruyne free kick 3-1. keeper woreful again. stood behind wall and couldn't see the ball.

pandemic, Thursday, 12 March 2015 19:34 (four years ago) link

this has been great & frantic, you wonder why everton don't play like this in the epl

vacuum head tree disease (imago), Thursday, 12 March 2015 21:43 (four years ago) link

Everton 3-1 down after 37mins. Their defence is SO BAD. Couple of great goals (yarmolenko and lukaku)

Blandford Forum, Thursday, 19 March 2015 18:38 (four years ago) link

What has happened to Roma recently? They have been awful.

Rainbow DAESH (ShariVari), Thursday, 19 March 2015 19:21 (four years ago) link

5-1 down now, another wonderful strike (antunes)

Blandford Forum, Thursday, 19 March 2015 19:37 (four years ago) link

Best league in the world, guv.

Walking Close to Melton Mowbray (Tom D.), Thursday, 19 March 2015 19:48 (four years ago) link

Roma were so terrible tonight it was bordering on the criminal. Goalie lols for the 2nd, non-existent marking for the 3rd. Ljanic sent off at the end. Shambles. They've barely won a game this year.

pandemic, Thursday, 19 March 2015 19:59 (four years ago) link

Once I saw Alcatraz was playing for Everton and Howard was in goal then the result was inevitable. No English teams involved in Euro QF's for the first time in 20 years!

pandemic, Thursday, 19 March 2015 20:01 (four years ago) link

watching wolfsburg on delay, another assist by kevin de bruyne.

pandemic, Thursday, 19 March 2015 21:22 (four years ago) link

Bendtner seals it

Napoli, Wolfsburg, Kiev, Zenit, Brugges, Fiorentina, Sevilla, Ajax/Dnipro

pandemic, Thursday, 19 March 2015 21:52 (four years ago) link

Do Ajax fans always sing that one bob marley song?

Blandford Forum, Thursday, 19 March 2015 22:02 (four years ago) link

Not singing anymore.

Rainbow DAESH (ShariVari), Thursday, 19 March 2015 22:06 (four years ago) link

so the russian and ukrainian teams aren't allowed to play each other. hardly a free draw then.

pandemic, Friday, 20 March 2015 12:11 (four years ago) link

blimey lfc representation here as well!

pandemic, Friday, 20 March 2015 12:12 (four years ago) link

(xp) good way of increasing the likelihood of a Russian v. Ukrainian final.... in Warsaw too!!!!

Betel-chewing Equipment of East New Guinea (Tom D.), Friday, 20 March 2015 12:15 (four years ago) link

sevilla - zenit (andre - unai)
dnipro - brugge
kiev - fiorentina
wolfsburg - napoli

looking frwd to that last one.

pandemic, Friday, 20 March 2015 12:15 (four years ago) link

one month passes...

Sevilla with the perfect away performance so far, early goal and chances on the break.

pandemic, Thursday, 23 April 2015 19:57 (four years ago) link

Howler from Beto, Rondon taps in. Game on. So awful from the keeper.

pandemic, Thursday, 23 April 2015 20:11 (four years ago) link

Beto so shook that Hulk decides to shoot from about 35 yards away on the right touchline, off the bar and in. Outrageous.

pandemic, Thursday, 23 April 2015 20:35 (four years ago) link

This leaden paul

Rae Kwoniff (NickB), Thursday, 3 November 2016 22:01 (two years ago) link

lol

imago, Thursday, 3 November 2016 22:02 (two years ago) link

Bravo! Some big scoring games tonite.

Millions of species Faye Dunaway (Tom D.), Thursday, 3 November 2016 22:05 (two years ago) link

Memphis, Schneiderlin, Darmian, Fellaini, Rooney, all need to go

Zlatan was a mistake too

Number None, Thursday, 3 November 2016 22:05 (two years ago) link

Yep

Rae Kwoniff (NickB), Thursday, 3 November 2016 22:14 (two years ago) link

when he was signed I expected him to rotate with Rashford in the centre forward position. Which would have been fine, and offered some good attacking variation. Instead he's become the new undroppable and plays 90 minutes basially every game, and Rashford is shunted out wide even though we desperately need movement up front.

Made absolutely no sense to bring him on when Pogba got injured either, especially with Rooney also on the pitch. Spent most of the game strolling around the centre circle. I swear at one point Mata was playing as striker ffs

Number None, Thursday, 3 November 2016 22:22 (two years ago) link

and it was zlatan's foul in defence that gave away the free kick for the second goal iirc

Rae Kwoniff (NickB), Thursday, 3 November 2016 22:37 (two years ago) link

as if scholesy isn't loving this, deep down. if he could have been a pundit while he was still playing the hovis ad that is his subconscious would have found a way to criticise the latest version of himself.

Agreed.

two years pass...

That was some strike for the Rennes goal

groovypanda, Thursday, 7 March 2019 19:15 (four months ago) link

sweet flick for the own goal too :D

kolarov spring (NickB), Thursday, 7 March 2019 19:18 (four months ago) link

cracking goal!

kolarov spring (NickB), Thursday, 7 March 2019 19:42 (four months ago) link

two months pass...

*weakly* it's a trapp

imago, Thursday, 9 May 2019 21:45 (two months ago) link

well that's one of the weirder penalty saves I've seen

Number None, Thursday, 9 May 2019 21:46 (two months ago) link

Could tell from the run up he was not going to score.

ShariVari, Thursday, 9 May 2019 21:47 (two months ago) link

It’s a shame. Frankfurt were the better team for most of the match. Some good last ditch defending from Chelsea though.

ShariVari, Thursday, 9 May 2019 21:48 (two months ago) link

kepa redemption narrative or something

imago, Thursday, 9 May 2019 21:49 (two months ago) link

there was quite a collection of tics, stutters, etc, in that shootout

Number None, Thursday, 9 May 2019 21:49 (two months ago) link

The Jorginho hop was pretty good.

ShariVari, Thursday, 9 May 2019 21:50 (two months ago) link

yeah it's effective too

Number None, Thursday, 9 May 2019 21:52 (two months ago) link

so it's an all-england final in both huh

gbx, Thursday, 9 May 2019 21:52 (two months ago) link

the defence is just not to move and rely on your reflexes though (which Ederson did in the Carabao Cup final)

Number None, Thursday, 9 May 2019 21:56 (two months ago) link

This is pretty appalling and I’m surprised something couldn’t have been worked out,

https://www.arsenal.com/news/henrikh-mkhitaryan-miss-europa-league-final

ShariVari, Tuesday, 21 May 2019 14:29 (one month ago) link

yep, disgraceful for UEFA

ogmor, Tuesday, 21 May 2019 14:30 (one month ago) link

Though it does look like the Azeri government had assured him he’d have no travel issues and that a security plan was in place, so I’m not sure what more they could have done, really. It looks like it was a personal decision from Mkhitaryan in the end.

ShariVari, Tuesday, 21 May 2019 17:28 (one month ago) link

I heard they had made assurances it wld be fine but it was clearly p vague. azerbaijan probably shouldn't be holding the final, UEFA probably shouldn't exist etc.

Not even bothering to use VAR when it's available for a penalty shout seems weird.

oscar bravo, Wednesday, 29 May 2019 19:24 (one month ago) link

Arsenal playing p well so Chelsea will probably score soon.

oscar bravo, Wednesday, 29 May 2019 19:35 (one month ago) link

this is shite

Number None, Wednesday, 29 May 2019 19:44 (one month ago) link

Just feels like the ‘final’ of a made up pre season tournament

Blandford Forum, Wednesday, 29 May 2019 19:48 (one month ago) link

Feels like the season was so so long ago to me. I feel weirdly emotionally removed from the upcoming champs lge final as well.

oscar bravo, Wednesday, 29 May 2019 19:51 (one month ago) link

great advert for English football

or something, Wednesday, 29 May 2019 19:52 (one month ago) link

Although if LFC lose that will change p sharpish.

oscar bravo, Wednesday, 29 May 2019 20:21 (one month ago) link

great advert for English football

tbf there was only one English footballer on the pitch

Ned Caligari (Tom D.), Wednesday, 29 May 2019 20:22 (one month ago) link

not was is. I hate Chelsea with a passion but Arsenal falling flat on their faces is never not funny.

Ned Caligari (Tom D.), Wednesday, 29 May 2019 20:22 (one month ago) link

And he just gave a penalty away

oscar bravo, Wednesday, 29 May 2019 20:23 (one month ago) link

Can't they cancel this final now, it should never have happened in the first place ;-)

Just so fucked off, can't we nationalise this fucking club already.
