What a result for us today. Mou needed a result against the big clubs n his ya tics were spot on. Marcos is a talent to behold, can't wait what he does next. He's so young. Chelsea from the get go looked tired or something. Can't say what it is. But great result for us!!!!!

As for leicster. Don't know what to make of it. Clearly they were capable of mounting atleast a top 4 challenge n didn't show up for Ranrieri. That's baffling as to why tho.

Well I sucked it up and watched anyway.. seems like man-marking Hazard worked like a charm. Costa couldn't keep his head. Rearranging the defense threw just about everybody off.. Begovic is no Courtios. Carrick as a sub pretty much negated Fabregas as a sub. Pretty disappointing all around.

I'm beginning to wonder if my season-long fear of Spurs wasn't entirely unfounded.

It was a good result for United...it certainly makes the last few weeks interesting. I'm seriously hoping Sp*rs fall off, but you have to give them a credible chance of doing it.

 

My fantasy team are making a late surge, so I'm happy, even if in real life Arsenal are utterly abject.

Anyone but chelski, lolpool or citah. I'm down with for championship. I'm seriously just focused on our Europa games. That's the most realistic scenario for chmpslg next season. Also summer should b full of new buys. Griezman would b an awesome addition but I feel v still need all positions strengthened bar don't fucking mess with Rashford.

I take it you're talking about the Madrid v Munich match?

 

Or would you be talking about Herrera's blatant handball over the weekend, which may have influenced the result, or indeed the title? No, didn't think so.

Herrera didn't blatantly handle the ball it was ball to hand. Ref missed it n I still would want var system anyway. Doesn't change my original point.

What? Did you see the position his arm was in? It was a deliberate handball. This isn't even up for discussion.

I'm totally against video replays by the way. Just saying.

I don't really want Real to win.. but I don't really want to watch a Juve/Atleti final either. Too much defense.. Too much boring.

It's all a bit weird - I don't think he'll go, who will spend that much money for 2 years out of him?  All these La Liga players are getting skewered on taxes, you'd think they'd have better advisors.

 

Real Madrid aren't doing great with Modric either.

To be honest if I was Real I'd want rid of him - he's getting older, and I'd be tempted to build a team around Bale. They say Bale and Ronaldo don't really get on, and it's a bit cliquey at Real - Ronaldo's clique don't pass to Bale on the pitch. That's not acceptable and Bale is the younger of the two. I'd make an example of Ronaldo if he's not going to be a team player - mind you, that's why I've never liked Madrid particularly: they've always been a collection of individuals (galacticos) rather than a team. 

 

As for the supposed transfer - which could yet be nothing - this is where the politics comes in. United are on alert because they'd love to bring him back, but they're said to be wary in case they're being played. The last thing they want to do is be used just to get a better deal out of Real and end up looking silly. 

 

As for other news, the last time I turned on a game we've got video technology being used and the pundits were talking about how England are rubbish because there's too many foreigners, both of which are immensely depressing. Is this the level we're still at? This is everything that's wrong with modern football.
