Football (Soccer)

Damn, it is really heartbreaking to see Liverpool not finish first after such an amazing season. Who would've thought that 97 points won't be enough?

As a life long fan of the team and supporter of the club, I’m strangely happy. It has been out of our hands for a few weeks now and I didn't really expect anything other than City winning their remaining games. I'm so pleased that we pressed them all the way though. That is impressive. At the end of the day, I'd also rather we finished second as LFC than finish first as Man City, if you see what I mean.

The CL final is great and I'm looking forward to it, but what makes me happiest is that I feel like we're back for real. Two CL finals on the trot, the best 2nd place finish ever and the ability to turn over Barcelona. Add to that a team spirit and a connection with the fans that harks back to the 80's (with all respect to Houllier and Rafa who were also wonderful managers), and the future is very bright indeed.

^Indeed...and with none of our best players angling for a move, whatever happens in the CL final should be a great season next.

United is a complete fucking disgrace right now.  I don't even know where to begin....

watching the game last night was beyond embarassing...

I captained Rashford on fpl ::) thinking surely they want to go out on a high.

Still broke 2300 points for the season, finishing around 25k. Decent.

how the feck do you get 2300!! i barely got near 2000.. highest between mates is 2244 and i'm on 1931

Liverpool and City should be an example to Man United on how to recruit properly. Don't just buy any player because your rivals are looking at them.

Bernado Silva for around 40m and Sadio Mane for 34m have to buy the top bargains of the decade.. especially when you consider Utd forked out 50m for Fred  :D

Black day for the Bayern hater. Of course the arrogant bastards won it (the German league championship) again, after having been second to Borussia Dortmund for most of the season. Seriously annoying.

Thoughts on the past Che-Ars Europa League final (if anyone cared about it at all)? I find it to be pretty odd to see two European club football finals in one week just three days apart.

@Dion Having a European final in a city with less than to be desired transport links had a knock on effect on the atmosphere. They were playing bloody music when a goal went in..

As for Arsenal's defending, the less we say about it the better  :D

the whole game was overshadowed by political unrest. especially for miki and the fans... i don't think having it there brought out the best for arsenal..

LFC talked successfully about six. Congrats to the first title in the Klopp era! Now Pep can continue to state that the CL was not important to him... because he hasn't been in the final for years now :P.

So pleased that the second half was more of a spectacle. Ecstatic about the second goal. Origi...?! Fekk me . BECKER for MoM. Wonderful 2nd half performance from our keeper.
