Ugh, wanted Ajax to win so bad. I have a Dutch/German Ajax fan friend in the 'Burgh, AND I didn't want it to be a game where one of two players with questionable effort during Newcastle's relegation gets to win a CL final. Oh well. Which is the lesser of two evils? I guess Spurs.
what a week of football. I know not good for you, but Kompany's goal was incredible, then Liverpool's amazing comeback.Yeah it was. Especially after Liverpool's comeback.
How anyone in America can hate Spurs is beyond me.
Arsenal, I'd certainly understand.
haha... when someone says they understand why people would hate Arsenal. I relate to that to that well.Where did I say I hate Spurs? And why is Spurs suddenly America's team? I know a lot of American Arsenal fans; THAT'S how an American can hate spurs lol Personally, I just didn't want that gutless Sissoko winning the CL, but if he doesn't, the gutless Wjnaldum and Liverfool win it. Neither one of them could be fussed to try very hard, leading in large part to Newcastle's relegation. THAT'S the lesser of two evils I was talking about.
I wouldn't say that. For as frustrating as it is to watch, for both sets of fans, often a team like SHU will get torn to pieces if they don't park the bus.I didn’t see the whole match, only the second half. The added time seemed excessive based on the part that I saw. But I’ll take it. Sheffield were parking the bus anyway so they deserved what they got.
I'm really impressed with Ange. he seems like he is very positive and he backs his players rather than instantly complaining about not having enough quality to compete with top teams. and all of this is coming on the end of the Harry Kane era. I have to wonder if Kane was bringing the club down because he merely outgrew the club and was being held captive by management. Thankfully they did not give Kane to another PL team in the end. But looking at Kane... tottenham's most recent chance of winning a major trophy came when Kane was injured and spurs defeated Manchester City/Ajax without him and clinched a spot in the UEFA cup final, only to see Pochettino bench Lucas Moura for an unfit Kane in the final. they also had a memorable win at Stamford Bridge without Kane. I just wonder if Kane was treated differently than the other players and how that affected the culture at Tottenham. I do like Harry Kane and appreciate his quality, but he is overrated as are a lot of the English players.They've looked really good under Ange. I hope you beat Liverfool.
I love this result, and I love the manner of this result. Losing in a ton of extra time in heartbreaking fashion? Hahahaha!2 red cards and a blown offside decision = spurs victory. I'll take it considering Liverpool were undefeated for so long both in the run of play and vs. spurs. I thought what may get overlooked in the match is that spurs actually played well against another top side. they needed to do some things better in the final 3rd and I think Son needed to stay on the pitch longer.
I acknowledge the bad offside call that caused Liverpool to lose rather than getting a point, which is what they most likely would have had if the goal was given. I actually thought that they played better when they went down a man in the first half. They started exploiting spurs in the back end even more than they were to begin with. The 2nd half Liverpool looked overmatched and rightfully so. The back to back yellows were the result of a tired player. Liverpool defended brilliantly down 2 men, but spurs helped them by not utilizing the right side of the pitch until the last possible minute.I love this result, and I love the manner of this result. Losing in a ton of extra time in heartbreaking fashion? Hahahaha!
