Only Spurs rush in: it's the UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE 2018/2019 thread

Fuck yalls disinterest in this shambolic money laundering footy tournament! PSV are in it ffs, after ages. And we're in it to win it.

It's a special year, because the ILX Spurs massive will meet the ILX PSV massive. The latter is, granted, not very massive (it me). But we're off to a surprisingly good start this year. PSV won 0-7 from ADO last weekend, I can't remember the last time Spurs beat ADO by those numbers, if at all. Harr harr, but this is the CL 18/19 thread, since no one bothered to start one before me.

I will tell you all one thing: we will probably finish fourth in this diabolic group. But we have these two:

Hirving 'Chucky' Lozano and Erick Gutierrez. A true bromance. Played together since they were 11 at Pachuca, Mexico. Now, finally, reunited at PSV. Guti played his first 20 minutes last Saturday, when PSV thrashed ADO 0-7. Guti came on, his first ball contact was delivering a 50 yard pass to his buddy Chucky. Five minutes later he scored like fucking Juninho could, a belter.

They, my friends, are ready. Show me what you've got.

Making Inter look competent isn’t something anyone else has managed this season, so hats off.

Dmac TT (darraghmac), Tuesday, 18 September 2018 18:05 (eleven months ago) link

Bizarre goal that.

Matt DC, Tuesday, 18 September 2018 18:08 (eleven months ago) link

at times unplayable and at times unplayable

reading deems livecomms of a spurs game, you have no idea who's winning or how many goals there have been

imago, Tuesday, 18 September 2018 18:23 (eleven months ago) link

but you usually know the ref is a cunt

Number None, Tuesday, 18 September 2018 18:26 (eleven months ago) link

Take it as read.

Zach Same (Tom D.), Tuesday, 18 September 2018 18:26 (eleven months ago) link

Can’t really begrudge a goal like that.

ahahahahaha fuck me

inexcusable, far worse than juve

Dmac TT (darraghmac), Tuesday, 18 September 2018 18:48 (eleven months ago) link

Poch out

Inter were fairly shit. They spent most of the match looking for Spurs players to be booked

. (Michael B), Tuesday, 18 September 2018 18:50 (eleven months ago) link

spurs best performance this season but that was two shit goals to concede at any stage on any stage

Dmac TT (darraghmac), Tuesday, 18 September 2018 18:58 (eleven months ago) link

love2too fight w/ Spurs for third place

Otm. Good for Firminho to get it

lbi's life of limitless european glamour (Le Bateau Ivre), Tuesday, 18 September 2018 20:56 (eleven months ago) link

I came late and didn't know the lineups and spent much of the first half wondering if neymar or mbappe had even started

gbx, Tuesday, 18 September 2018 20:57 (eleven months ago) link

Oh, I've just noticed it's not on Freeview anywhere and fuck going out to watch it, so I'll just have to find something else to do to pass the time.

I was very wrong -- place is crawling with spuds

gbx, Saturday, 1 June 2019 18:47 (two months ago) link

there's been a long-building oversaturation, compulsion and joylessness to my relationship with football and this years champions league grind has clarified for me what madness the whole thing is. my plan is to watch this and then kiss the whole thing goodbye

ogmor, Saturday, 1 June 2019 18:50 (two months ago) link

Going well so far

Uh right, starting off stupid.

Just hanging the washing out ref. Nothing to see.

lefal junglist platton (wtev), Saturday, 1 June 2019 19:08 (two months ago) link

Selfish from Spurs. Arsenal fans 100% need the illicit, masochistic thrill of Spurs somehow winning the Champions League and they're absolutely fucking it

Dadjokke (Sgt. Biscuits), Saturday, 1 June 2019 19:12 (two months ago) link

Spurs the better side despite the goal

FernandoHierro, Saturday, 1 June 2019 19:15 (two months ago) link

Is the heat having an effect here? Both on fans and players? Feels fairly flat, oddly.

FernandoHierro, Saturday, 1 June 2019 19:28 (two months ago) link

Poor match so far. I was very much in the Liverpool camp since putting a tenner on them to beat Spurs in the final after the first leg of the semis, have now bunged £50 on a Spurs win so am happy for football to be the winner.

Blandford Forum, Saturday, 1 June 2019 19:29 (two months ago) link

Lucas on for Kane at the half if Poch has any balls

Number None, Saturday, 1 June 2019 19:43 (two months ago) link

Like watching paint dry tbh.

Ned Caligari (Tom D.), Saturday, 1 June 2019 19:47 (two months ago) link

Danny Rose best player on the pitch so far

Blandford Forum, Saturday, 1 June 2019 19:47 (two months ago) link

Not helped by having not one but two pisspoor summarizers in McManaman and Jenas.

Ned Caligari (Tom D.), Saturday, 1 June 2019 19:50 (two months ago) link

Dull half

Got your butt drank (Neanderthal), Saturday, 1 June 2019 19:51 (two months ago) link

Felt like an MLS half

Got your butt drank (Neanderthal), Saturday, 1 June 2019 19:52 (two months ago) link

So obv final score will be 5-4

Got your butt drank (Neanderthal), Saturday, 1 June 2019 19:52 (two months ago) link

Michael "Interesting" Owen in the studio @ half time, joy of joys.

Ned Caligari (Tom D.), Saturday, 1 June 2019 19:59 (two months ago) link

I hope Klopp has had a go at half-time, that was poor from Liverpool.

FernandoHierro, Saturday, 1 June 2019 20:06 (two months ago) link

Some abysmal football in this game. I don't think Spurs have had a shot on target yet. After an hour.

Lil' Brexit (Tracer Hand), Saturday, 1 June 2019 20:30 (two months ago) link

Llorente on for Kane imo

Blandford Forum, Saturday, 1 June 2019 20:32 (two months ago) link

Best part of the final is how the stadium looks incredible.

Van Horn Street, Saturday, 1 June 2019 20:36 (two months ago) link

After 72 minutes, Alisson called on to make a save.

Ned Caligari (Tom D.), Saturday, 1 June 2019 20:39 (two months ago) link

A shot! An actual shot!

my YouTube stream literally glitched exactly for that goal

grim

Number None, Saturday, 1 June 2019 20:50 (two months ago) link

Mine's is about 3 minutes behind, so I don't know who's scored yet.

Ned Caligari (Tom D.), Saturday, 1 June 2019 20:52 (two months ago) link

Is there still time to give it to Ajax?

Van Horn Street, Saturday, 1 June 2019 20:52 (two months ago) link

Oh, right. Poch out.

Ned Caligari (Tom D.), Saturday, 1 June 2019 20:53 (two months ago) link

No side in the world could beat Liverpool playing at that level

FernandoHierro, Saturday, 1 June 2019 20:58 (two months ago) link

I’ve just seen my post and realised it says Spuds, not Spurs. That wasn’t intentional.

No, I think you were right first time.

It was hard to actually feel the buzz for a while cos the game was so turgid and painful (and because I watched it home alone since I have to fly home for a funeral very early tomorrow) but I am feeling it now.
