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.

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

idk man, some things have looked worse but individuals look to have been given a lot more licence also, can definitely see changing decisions all over the pitch

deems of internment (darraghmac), Tuesday, 26 November 2019 21:36 (two months ago) link

Dele in particular looks like a different player.

Matt DC, Tuesday, 26 November 2019 21:38 (two months ago) link

Well I'll take it from you over the Nult Kru. 'Working wonders' just sounds like a stretch when yr playing Olympiakos.

(hopefully)

groovypanda, Tuesday, 26 November 2019 21:40 (two months ago) link

dele had a terrible first half (along with son) but i think its going to take a while for them to realise that they can make different runs and choices out there again.

former looked unplayable at times in that second half

deems of internment (darraghmac), Tuesday, 26 November 2019 21:41 (two months ago) link

Nah its fine I'm sure Mourinho will find a way to strangle the life out of them soon enough.

Matt DC, Tuesday, 26 November 2019 21:42 (two months ago) link

eriksen playing like himself again

serious indictment of pochs effect on players over four years if he starts to play to his ability again and alderweireld signs up

deems of internment (darraghmac), Tuesday, 26 November 2019 21:43 (two months ago) link

yeah it's more like Mourinho hasn't had a chance to exert his influence on them yet

Number None, Tuesday, 26 November 2019 21:53 (two months ago) link

possibly

pochles off anyway

waiting for var to decide that that second psg goal didnt actually go in tbh

This new Mouriniho is rather unsettling

groovypanda, Tuesday, 26 November 2019 22:31 (two months ago) link

i tend to agree that it cannot last, danny rose would turn anyone, let alone mourinho on a knife edge

deems of internment (darraghmac), Tuesday, 26 November 2019 22:32 (two months ago) link

He is much more interesting and compulsive now than he was at man u and regular viewers may know I'm a liverpool fan who was enjoying him running them into the ground. You just dont know what's gonna happen here. Maybe as a man who learns from his mistakes and matures he wont suddenly chuck it all in but... it's interesting waiting for it

The guy is charismatic what can you do

or something, Tuesday, 26 November 2019 23:25 (two months ago) link

Dele's been improving with each game since coming back into the team but was shite for most of the first half here. Aurier plays very well 85% of the time & is scapegoated often to avoid pointing the finger at Alderweireld imho. I'm tentatively positive about Mou so far, simplifying, calming, encouraging. Who knew? Was horrible how anxy they were till the soft 1st Spurs goal.

lilcraigyboi (Craigo Boingo), Wednesday, 27 November 2019 06:18 (two months ago) link

I mean the best thing about Mourinho has usually been his ability to make quick, decisive, game changing substitutions and with the exception of CF we will usually have a strong bench.

Matt DC, Wednesday, 27 November 2019 09:04 (two months ago) link

Eriksen's performance was heartening as well.

Matt DC, Wednesday, 27 November 2019 09:05 (two months ago) link

What's Levy's plan with Eriksen? IS he still hoping to sell him off this January, or has he accepted he'll walk out on a free next summer?

Le Bateau Ivre, Wednesday, 27 November 2019 09:07 (two months ago) link

still offering terms i think

im not bothered by the difference between a pittance and a gap in jan vs free and a replacement in summer tbh
