Would be nice if Ajax and Atalanta was a draw or a win to Ajax.

Unbelievable goal. Gerrard said it was the best he'd ever seen 'live'.

To get such a clean connection with that amount of water underfoot was incredible.

It was depressing watching City because they reminded me of us at our best - Rock solid at the back and lethal on the break (second goal)

Dias was immense and they finally bought the right CB but it’s Foden who looks the most impressive - Pep really has handled him well. Sometimes your name is in it and it see,s to be like that for City

- Played Dortmund and Sancho misses both legs
- PSG knock out Bayern who had no Lewa, Gnabry or a host of others
- Mbappe misses the game vs them

I really hope they don’t win it but the year when squad depth and no crowd impact and felt the most is when those financial dopes will do it, their bench had like £450m worth of players on it.......ffs

In a compacted season like this, with games coming thick and fast, having 2 first 11s really has helped them immensely. Whereas other clubs have a drop in quality when players are tired or injured, Pep can just call on a £50m player of 8 to plug the holes.

Hopefully Chelsea overcome Real, cos I think they stand a better chance against City than Real do.

Foden is sickeningly good. But yeah, stars have aligned for them. I've pretty much tapped out of football for the season so I doubt I'll even bother with the final.

If Real make the Final they will/should have more or less a full squad back fit by then.

That prick Ramos is back in full training as well so may well be him and Varane starting at CB against Chelsea.

One thing Real have over Chelsea is a lot more steel and bite through their team and they are far better at being dirty spoiling little toerags.

If Chelsea make the final, then I will root for them over City, but right now I am hoping it will be Real that face City in the final as I think Chelsea would have as much chance of shipping four or five goals against City in a once off game as they would of giving City a tight game.

Must admit, I would have paid attention to the last 15mins if it involved the ref going from player to player telling them to fuck off and what not.

everything seems written for them to win it this season & to been they have been brilliant. Dias has been sensational (Player of the season imo) & Foden looks a scary talent and even being so young, playing in a top class team he does not look out of place.

Football is dead to me this season.

Real had a makeshift back four for both legs against us. We should have been in the Semis.

What's he moaning about? In every single football game I've ever watched someone has told the referee to fuck off, and much worse, and never get booked. Rooney used to do it every few minutes.

Agree completely about Dias. Every time BT sport mention how good he has been, they bring Stones into the conversation too

Dias has been a brilliant signing alright though. Holy shit he is only 23 years old as well. Epic signing for them.

Foden looks top as well. Remember Pep saying a few years ago that he wouldn't sell him for 450m. Even though Foden wasn't getting much game time at the time. If he is lucky with injuries, then he could break all sorts of records for amount of trophies.


Agree completely with people who say they have been lucky with the run too though. A fully oiled Bayern would have surely given them a much better game.

I think Chelsea will give them a better game in the final somehow as well though. Maybe the FA Cup semi would play on their minds?

As for PSG??? All fart. Did they even have a shot on target ffs??? Pathetic. Poch might have left Spurs but Spurs obviously hasn't left him. Would be a bt funny on PSG if Tuchel went and won the thing

PSG are horribly disjointed as a team. In attack in particular. Neymar is me me me when he plays.

They look far less of a cohesive unit under Pochettino than they did under Tuchel. Cannot stand Tuchel but also cannot deny he is able to make a mark on a team quickly and get his ideas into practise on a pitch faster than a lot of managers.

Did laugh when one of the pundits on Irish tv was questioning the play acting and snipey stuff from PSG last night and asking how that crept into a team with Pochettino as manager. Was making a point that Pochettino teams, like Spurs, were known for being fair, honest non dark arts type teams.

Guy must have never seen Spurs play under Pochettino or seen Pochettino as a player if he thinks he is some shining light for non diving fair play.

Also laughed at the interview Pochettino gave after the game in which he claimed PSG dominated Man City last night and had City on the ropes for much of the game.

He looks stupidly good for a more experienced player let alone a lad of 20.

14 goals and 8 assists in all comps for City so far this season. Is also one of those player who looks as good to the eye when he plays as he does in terms of stats and any flaws you could pick in his game using underlying stats are ones that will most likely improve with experience anyway.

For a small and light lad, he seems quite wiry and robust at times.


Dias is the guy I think is awesome in their team though. Only 23 and looks the finished article at CB. Looks the kind of CB that would be world class whether he was playing a high line or in a team that parked the bus. So gifted on the ball but also reads the game in a manner beyond his years.

Only way Pep would leave, imo, in the short to medium term would be if he was given a bigger budget somewhere like Barca or Juve (if he wanted to try to win major prizes in four leagues), but that is not going to happen.


What they are this season is a proper team. A bit mechanical to watch at times but they scrap for every inch and have the quality to punish from so many positions.

Only position in their team that does not offer a goal threat is that of goalkeeper. Everywhere else, be it defence, midfield or up front, all bring a serious goal threat.

It's like playing Fifa21 with the 500m transfer budget option activated, and even then that falls short of what Pep could spend

7 mins gone and Chelsea are lucky not to have had three bookings, got away with a couple of clear ones, they’ve gone rough for this one.
