    Watford look good. and then Cardiff as well pushing Arsenal to the brink. just looking around Liverpool struggled, and city struggled, but they got the 3 points. this is going to be a fun season.

    It'll be a wild ride, for sure. Thankfully a lot of tough games are behind Newcastle, and I think they'll play much more positive for a while. Arsenal have goal scoring ability, but they haven't in the least bit fixed their defensive frailties. Newcastle didn't even allow Cardiff a shot on goal, and Arsenal shipped 2.

    Watford, man...wow! Insane.

    I have to say for the PSV match... the disallowed goal against spurs was harsh! no such break given to lloris on the red card.

    Yeah it was. Especially after Liverpool's comeback.

    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.

    How anyone in America can hate Spurs is beyond me.

    Arsenal, I'd certainly understand.

    what a week of football. I know not good for you, but Kompany's goal was incredible, then Liverpool's amazing comeback.

    and you have to say Moura's second half hat trick was not something anyone saw coming. I thought Deli finally played well for the first time in a very long time. if he is in that form spurs are able to go at a higher level. a lot of players dug deep and got results for their team. good for Liverpool. they will be favoured to win and still have a lot to play for today.

    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.

    Spurs are my second favorite team, and favorite big 6. But that's mainly because they were the closest team playing when I was in London for work so I went to their game.

    I don't know why, but I connected with spurs a lot after moving here. I started to take a liking to them in 2013 when they had Dempsey and Bale, but I knew they were my team when they lost to Chelsea in the FA cup semi final in 2017 and I was so hurt. I guess I should get used to them letting me down in big games, but getting to the UCL Final is incredible for them.

    haha... when someone says they understand why people would hate Arsenal. I relate to that to that well.

    Arsenal and Manchester United were the first premier league clubs that I watched in 2003 timeframe. I heard of those clubs before then because of the World Cup. which is so backwards LOL! Thankfully, I never got on with them or Manchester United (or any other European club). I wish I had more access to the league back in those days.

    for what its worth I don't think Spurs are America's Team....maybe England's team with all of the English players that they have. It will probably be Chelsea now that they have pulisic. he had quite the send off with Dortmund yesterday.
