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 wouldn't normally be bullish but Barca are perfect opponents for Liverpool, a bad defence and too big a pedigree to play in a way that won't expose it.

They were crap in both legs against Man U, at least until the errors made the scoreline comfortable enough. A tiny bit of harrying at Old Trafford and they looked like a rabbit in the headlights.

Turns out I’m going to be in Rosario - which is (kind of) Poch’s home town. It unfortunately doubles as Leo Messi’s home town so i might struggle to find a bar showing Spurs.

Hopefully the Sissoko injury won’t be too bad. Idk if Foyth is trusted to play CM but there isn’t really anyone else fit.

Yep - both semi-finals are listed as the 30th but I guess that one will be on the 1st and they haven’t decided which.

playing out of position for most the game trying to shut down the best attacking team in europe is not flattering but dele's positioning, awareness and runs were choice, really the only good thing about that midfield

Wanyama looked pretty rusty and was skinned several times and there's next to no chance of him being fit for the next round in any case.

same as cricket. it takes the physical feeling of elation away at a goal (which affects the experience of watching on tv as well as people at the match). it takes judgment off the pitch. as we saw last night it replaces that surge of adrenaline with bewilderment and uncertainty. and a technology that was justified on the basis of removing egregious blunders gets used to make pixel fine judgments (the llorente “handball” last night - no intention, no hand to ball, unavoidable, and yet, did it perhaps brush his elbow?). the space of error just moves into protracted microscopic video analysis. the main driver behind it was media controversy boosting.

absolutely hilarious last night of course.

Moussa Sissoko told L'Equipe that he did not realise Tottenham had gone through to the Champions League semi-finals until a member of the coaching staff informed him in the dressing room that Manchester City's last-gasp goal had been disallowed.

The French midfielder, who was replaced in the first half due to injury, was so distraught after Raheem Sterling scored that he immediately walked down the tunnel and did not realise the goal had been ruled out for offside a minute later.

"I was on the bench when I saw the goal that made it 5-3," he said. "I was so upset that I returned directly to the dressing room.

"I was alone, no-one had accompanied me, no TV screen was broadcasting the game. In my head we were eliminated. Then one of the staff members entered the dressing room and told me: 'Incredible, we did it!'

"I said: 'How did we do it?' At that moment, he told me that the goal had been disallowed. So I put on a t-shirt, I forgot about my injury and I ran outside to join the others, not to miss the celebrations for such a historic moment. It was an incredible, emotional shock."
