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.

Admire Barca's commitment to finding evermore embarrassing ways to exit the CL year on year. First Roma then LFC then whatever this is.

Loving the Thomas Muller Renaissance this season and the moving one of the best LBs in the world to CB because oh yes we just happen to have an even better LB sure he's a teenager but let's do it anyway.

No wonder Poch and Xavi said no thanks in January.

That was extraordinary to watch.

oscar bravo, Friday, 14 August 2020 20:55 (three months ago) link

It's almost impossible to defend going back to the old Champions League format after seeing that. There'll be half as many games but twice as many people will want to watch them.

Last year's semis not exactly dull iirc

Last year's semis represented the single greatest moment of my football watching life but there's a specific drama and magic to 90mins of high stakes knockout football.

Enjoyed the serge gnabry arjen robben tribute goal. Coutinho looked really good when he came on.

Flicked over to 5live after the game to hear Sutton and Dublin lambasting the Lyon forward for missing 2 chances which apparently one can't do "at this level" and separates out the really top strikers from the average whilst willfully ignoring the fact that the chance lewandowski missed that led to gnabry's 2nd goal was way worse.

Final should be tasty.

oscar bravo, Wednesday, 19 August 2020 21:09 (three months ago) link

possible caveat: Lewandowski's 55 goals in 46 appearances this season

Number None, Thursday, 20 August 2020 07:39 (three months ago) link

i sure hope it won't be 10 more years before lyon get back to the cl semis (but honestly their chances are low, they are nowhere near the level of the big money clubs... tbh i'd probably be happier to see them in the europa league where they stand a chance)and that if they do they can avoid munich. two semis lost 3-0 to bayern (ok in 2010 they lost 1-0 and 3-0).
anyways, i hope psg beat bayern on sunday, even if it'll mean my psg supporting friends become even more annoying.

Jibe, Thursday, 20 August 2020 10:57 (three months ago) link

picked psg to win this itt in february so guess i'll stick with them but there are probably more bayern players i like than psgers. neymar has been ridic good this knockout phase and maybe he'll sort his finishing tonight.
