    Spurs can win. One match, of course they can. I wouldn’t be surprised if they did

    Weird how good Tottenham and Liverpool look without their best players

    I'm not even arguing anything you say, but it's a strange point in time to bring it up. Ajax didn't lose because of goaltending, right?

    No actually. I wound up deciding to watch films all the time instead. Had a gigantic backlog and still do.

    Second lockout didn’t help either.

    So we're going to be treated with "EPL uber alles" stuff even though EPL teams cleverly avoided a single CL final FIVE straight years the year before last? Even though they're EASILY the richest league in the world?
    Germany had an all german CL final in 2013 and nobody (except some fools) called the Bundesliga the best league in the world.
    Besides, having 4 candidates EVERY ****ing year is one heck of an advantage, an advantage UEFA wants to stress even more in every single change of format.

    I think direct flights to Barcelona are more frequent and less expensive.

    Disagree. Spurs didn´t play especially well. Lump it to Llorente.

    I think Eriksen summarised it well in his interview.

    Not that I think it was completely unfair overall. Spurs played better the last 65 mins at home. And certainly in the second half in this game. Quite random who goes through.

    Nope and I never said they did, just that they should get a better GK as Onana isn't reliable and has been pretty shaky.

    If I'm given to understand correctly, this means that Kane and Salah are OVERRATED LOSER-FRAUDS, because great players don't just win, they dominate-win. Being injured is just an Omega-man excuse.

    Meanwhile, it's worth remembering in advance that whichever team loses the final, their coach will also be an OVERRATED LOSER-FRAUD. Winning is all that counts, you see. Apart from when you don't win dominantly enough, obviously.

    I just think there are several topics to touch upon after this loss and goaltending is pretty far down on the list. That's all.

    Remember when Tadic curled it out for a goal kick in stoppage time?

    It is, but people are going to latch onto it anyway. Considering what the teams with fans have been through recently, I'm sure it feels kind of a ressurection. Let them have their fun, it's not like an English coach has done anything recently

    Comparing five years of foreigners being lucky with one year of the English enjoying their just desserts is like comparing apples and oranges.

    I get it.

    I mean I still have deep emotional ties to hockey, but this is objectively better.

    Do you mean when he wanted to play corner keep-away for five minutes and put it out himself after two seconds

    So many moments to this game

    When that happened, I thought, 'Not smart game management. But surely it can't matter. We can't have another grandstand finish?'

    not only that, his pass to Frenkie was pretty bad too he should've went to his left foot and finish it. He had a pretty bad 'clutch perfomance' in this match. Could've aced the game with better decision making.
