The Champions League Thread

It’s a bit of a stupid rule though in fairness.


#5732

outrageous decision! Now i can’t say, only Sergio Ramos can get suspended for a match while being suspended for a match :expressionless:

But yeah, they should get rid of that rule if they’re not going to enforce/punish it.


#5733

Yeah, can’t decide if I want to go on a rant about how Florentino’s mafia connections help him out greatly in Europe or if I want to go on a rant about how UEFA is full of cunts.


#5734

do both, life is short :henry2:


#5735

0 of those 6 goals came against Atletico for what it’s worth.


#5736

So why did Atletico not go further this season?


#5737

Because they butchered other games against teams not named Roma… simple really.


#5738

What makes you certain they will go further than Roma next season?


#5739

I just think they are the better side and this year was kind of an anomaly for Atletico in the Champions League.


#5740

Think you’re overrating them a tad.

They’re not the same team as 15-16, 13-14, or even the earlier years.

They struggled to get past Leicester last season.

Still much better than us mind, but still, they have done down a bit.

Crespo on losing the final to Liverpool


#5742

Well fuck. These guys are meant to vanquish the evil empire.

Now what. Tbh he probably would have got red carded at some point so maybe a blessing in disguise lol


#5743

Considering how he cost them last time it’s no bad thing, would rather them play a midfield three of James, Thiago and Martinez anyway.


#5744

Yeah, Vidal isn’t even particularly good, I thought? Tolisso probably a better option too, I’m guessing.


#5745

Wouldn’t go that far but seems he’ll be off in the summer considering they’ve got Tolisso and Goretzka incoming.


#5746

I wanna see Rodriguez Thiago and Martinez.

Martinez is a little less hot-headed than Vidal I guess, too.


#5747

Haha, my Juve supporting mate just sent me this.

I think he might still be bitter.


#5749

Worse attempt at the peno save than Cech.


#5750

Roma stand a chance, imo. I was very impressed from them against Barca. They just need not lose badly at Anfield.


#5751

Liverpool - Roma tonight!

Got a feeling Roma will do well, score one or two away goals. Should be a great match.
