Someone had to

United have seemed comfortable.

The second half of Zenit vs Bruges was absolutely wild.

Scampo di tutti i Scampi (ShariVari), Tuesday, 20 October 2020 20:00 (eleven months ago) link

this is the PSG we know and love, but Utd have been really solid

Telles has an unbelievable cross on him. Hopefully our lads will learn how to attack them eventually

Number None, Tuesday, 20 October 2020 20:05 (eleven months ago) link

Lovely header from Martial.

Scampo di tutti i Scampi (ShariVari), Tuesday, 20 October 2020 20:15 (eleven months ago) link

Ah fuck off

Bizarre

I actually cannot fault that performance

Not even the kit?

Bless Eder and his ability to score once in thirty matches, but only in big games.

Scampo di tutti i Scampi (ShariVari), Wednesday, 21 October 2020 17:15 (eleven months ago) link

Real are two nil down

Number None, Wednesday, 21 October 2020 17:29 (eleven months ago) link

Lol, three.

Scampo di tutti i Scampi (ShariVari), Wednesday, 21 October 2020 17:37 (eleven months ago) link

Against the Shakhtar b-team as well!

Scampo di tutti i Scampi (ShariVari), Wednesday, 21 October 2020 17:38 (eleven months ago) link

Great goal from Modric. If Shakhtar sit back, there’s no way they’re holding this lead.

Scampo di tutti i Scampi (ShariVari), Wednesday, 21 October 2020 18:06 (eleven months ago) link

Vinicius scores three seconds after coming on.

it'll finish 6-3

Good draw for Lokomitiv.

oh excellent, my jinxes never work usually

Szoboszlai is so good. Traore at Ajax looks excellent too - only one goal so far today, he scored five at the weekend.

Scampo di tutti i Scampi (ShariVari), Tuesday, 27 October 2020 20:45 (eleven months ago) link

The five at the weekend was amateur hour tbf

Madrid 2-0 down, you love to see it.. again!

Madrid level!

I was thinking the fake crowd noise at the Chelsea game was unusually good

then I realised there are actual fans in the stands

Morata has had three goals disallowed through VAR.

Scampo di tutti i Scampi (ShariVari), Wednesday, 28 October 2020 21:17 (eleven months ago) link

Rashford for PM

Number None, Wednesday, 28 October 2020 21:36 (eleven months ago) link

Hat trick!

Scampo di tutti i Scampi (ShariVari), Wednesday, 28 October 2020 21:51 (eleven months ago) link

Joao Felix looks excellent this season. Consistently the biggest threat Atleti have.

Looking forward to seeing how Gomez and Williams handle Zapata, Muriel and the other Gomez later.

Scampo di tutti i Scampi (ShariVari), Tuesday, 3 November 2020 19:21 (eleven months ago) link

Jota with two brilliant finishes.

Scampo di tutti i Scampi (ShariVari), Tuesday, 3 November 2020 20:36 (eleven months ago) link

Five nil, Jota hat trick. This is hugely impressive counter attacking.

Scampo di tutti i Scampi (ShariVari), Tuesday, 3 November 2020 21:10 (eleven months ago) link

The bittersweetness of enjoying Jota's rise won't stop, but I am pleased for the cunt

Surely a bit more sweet than bitter in that it's clearly a transfer that everybody benefits from

or something, Tuesday, 3 November 2020 21:39 (eleven months ago) link

Every time he scores I assume it ups the fee and he clearly wasn't in Nuno's plans so yeah it is more sweet than bitter but he's killing it, which is great, but obvi sigh

big man on scampus (Noodle Vague), Tuesday, 3 November 2020 21:45 (eleven months ago) link

Atrocious performance again

A loss to Everton and I think/hope Ole is gone

Number None, Wednesday, 4 November 2020 19:52 (eleven months ago) link

three weeks pass...

Madrid currently losing to Donetsk again. As it stands, they’re third, level on points with Shakhtar. Depending on how the other game tonight goes, Shakhtar could potentially be playing an already eliminated Inter last.

RBS vs Lokomotiv has been great fun.

Scampo di tutti i Scampi (ShariVari), Tuesday, 1 December 2020 19:24 (ten months ago) link

Lokomotiv penalty, brawl, Salzburg goal in two minutes.

Scampo di tutti i Scampi (ShariVari), Tuesday, 1 December 2020 19:36 (ten months ago) link

lol, 2-0 Shakhtar.

Scampo di tutti i Scampi (ShariVari), Tuesday, 1 December 2020 19:38 (ten months ago) link

i don’t understand how they took the tying goal off the board in the inter match... like i literally don’t get it

J0rdan S., Tuesday, 1 December 2020 22:00 (ten months ago) link

Embolo was fractionally offside, which usually wouldn’t matter as he didn’t touch the ball, but he was blocking the vision of the goalkeeper so was considered ’active’.

Scampo di tutti i Scampi (ShariVari), Tuesday, 1 December 2020 22:03 (ten months ago) link

ah ok. seems like a crazy subjective rule. somehow the VAR toothpaste needs to be put back in the tube

J0rdan S., Tuesday, 1 December 2020 22:06 (ten months ago) link

sadly it's here to ruin football forever now

Yep, straight down the middle.

Scampo di tutti i Scampi (ShariVari), Wednesday, 2 December 2020 19:48 (ten months ago) link

tbh, you could have been talking about either keeper though.

Scampo di tutti i Scampi (ShariVari), Wednesday, 2 December 2020 19:49 (ten months ago) link

away goals abolished, which i get even though i am a fan of them. what i don't get is having 30 mins of extra time before pens in event of an aggregate draw, seems unfairly weighted in favour of whoever has the 2nd leg at home.

oscar bravo, Thursday, 24 June 2021 14:55 (three months ago) link

Away goals are great, fucking uefa

Full Kit Starmer (Noodle Vague), Thursday, 24 June 2021 15:08 (three months ago) link

True.
I'm not sure what I think about that change but I kinda liked that away goal rule although I agree that it was difficult to justify nowadays.

Why is it difficult to justify nowadays? What's changed?

Are Animated Dads Getting Hotter? (Tom D.), Thursday, 24 June 2021 17:33 (three months ago) link

for elite teams i assume ease, comfort and time of travel.

oscar bravo, Thursday, 24 June 2021 18:50 (three months ago) link

Sorry, don't understand.

Are Animated Dads Getting Hotter? (Tom D.), Thursday, 24 June 2021 18:52 (three months ago) link

away goals rule was instituted when plane travel was slower and less comfortable, and some teams even travelled via bus to neighbouring countries. accommodations could be unpleasant, training facilities sub-par. football was also a lot less developed so teams weren't taking their sports scientists and nutritionists with them, these roles not existing then.

back in the day many uk teams have sob-stories about mammoth journeys to eastern europe, dingy digs, dodgy food, training in car-parks. all that jumpers for goalposts "real football" type shit.

now it's millionaires taking a flight, usually just for a few hours, going to an interchangeable luxury hotel that could be in any city, having an identical routine pre and post-match in terms of food, training in comparable facilities etc.

《Myst1kOblivi0n》 (jim in vancouver), Thursday, 24 June 2021 19:00 (three months ago) link

Indeed but why is it difficult to justify the away goals rule nowadays? It was introduced in the era when teams might have to play a third match to settle a match, and that's not about to happen again, and also to stop teams parking the bus in away ties.

Are Animated Dads Getting Hotter? (Tom D.), Thursday, 24 June 2021 19:07 (three months ago) link

Is the theory that penalty kicks are a fairer way to settle ties?

Are Animated Dads Getting Hotter? (Tom D.), Thursday, 24 June 2021 19:09 (three months ago) link

By the way, when I said, "What's changed", I meant from last year, not from 1965.

Are Animated Dads Getting Hotter? (Tom D.), Thursday, 24 June 2021 19:13 (three months ago) link

jim that's a solid summary of where the rule came from but away goals always create a tactical slyness that will be missed, just another bland step to TV mulch

Four penalties in the first half of Sevilla - Salzburg, three of which went to Salzburg, two of which were missed.

Number None, Tuesday, 14 September 2021 18:41 (one month ago) link

watched the last 15 of this man u game, seemed like utd had decided a draw was enough, from early in the second half, what was lingard thinking making that pass, did he just want an assist and didn't care for who?, why were cronaldo and penandes hooked early in the 2nd half? was jaded poncho even playing?, is cavani now behind martial, who came on and didn't even touch the ball, weird game, I have questions

Swanswans, Tuesday, 14 September 2021 18:44 (one month ago) link

Wan-Bissaka was sent off in the first half, although that doesn't adequately explain the total capitulation followed

Cavani is injured

Superb game by Curtis tho, really stepping up

Scampo di tutti i Scampi (ShariVari), Wednesday, 29 September 2021 20:45 (two weeks ago) link

I’ve seen all Barca’s league games this season and they really are awful. They have injuries, tbf, but they’re a one-man team at the moment and, unfortunately, that man is Memphis Depay who turns up for one game in three,

Koeman wants to be sacked but Barca can’t afford his severance pay. He was criticised for not playing enough young players so has been stuffing the team with 17-year-olds out of spite. They make Spurs look organised and cohesive.

I’m not enormously sympathetic but going from a situation where about ten clubs could plausibly win the Champions League to one where four could does make things even more boring than they were previously.
