    What's more controversial- VAR or NHL coach's challenges?

    Hoping for this too partially because I don’t want an English team that isn’t arsenal to win but also because there’ll be great narratives

    That's still debatable then IMO

    It wasn't scored directly from the hand/arm and I'm not sure you can call the tiny, tiny, tiny deflection as him gaining possession or control.

    If United was smart, they’d whack Ole and throw the money truck at Poch this summer.

    Lost in that offside was the fact that it was a spectacular cutback by Aguero and a really nice reception by Sterling.

    Maybe Man City and PSG can use their infinite money and buy players that don’t choke. Just a thought.

    VAR for Golden Ball!

    What a crazy game that was.

    A Barcelona vs City final would have been a lot of fun to watch. Thought those 2 would be a hell of a matchup. Ah well.
    I'm still convinced Man City was cheated. Not changing my mind. **** happens. That's how it goes. Maybe next time they will have better luck.
    Post game show says handball. Steve Nash though..

    Never too late. It could save them millions if they screw it up this summer

    Might have well root for Barcelona from now on, how many teams have you rooted for in the past 5 years? Probably at least 3-4.
    Maybe you started with Chelsea then went with PSG or Real Madrid then with Man City...

    As if Pochettino is leaving now. Might as well try to hire Klopp.

    The important thing here is that we have restorative justice.

    I think City should take their revenge by cooking up some morally dubious financial model to gain an edge on their competitors.

    My first thought would be to pick a Barca/Ajax final, but I want to think about it a little more.

    Barcelona vs. Liverpool will most likely be amazing.

    I think Liverpool got the better team, but if Messi has a game or two when he is unplayable then Barcelona will go through. That doesn´t always happen though.

    To be honest, I do feel this should help City in the league

    The added time goal was offside, Ageuro was in an offside position when Bernardo Silva intercepted the pass and it ricocheted off his leg into Ageuro's path...any "interference" constitutes offside.

    The handball goal by llorente though is questionable, you can see his arm vibrate when the ball hits his wrist? That was the wrong call imho but it's difficult to catch without a overhead camera.

    Spurs will not offer much of a game this weekend at least. More injuries. No depth. And emotionally empty after tonight. That should help City getting back on track (if they are ever really off).

    Messi is obviously the best player on either team...but there are so many players on both teams this will apply to. Can't wait for it.
