Last wishes are for Juve to win CL and Mourinho to fuck off and lose to a bunch of teenagers on Wed against Ajax.


You and me both! The city is going absolutely apeshit right now, no one thought ajax would make a final again. Such a fun young squad they have now, hopefully they dont succumb to the pressure.

Due to the recent bombing let's hope United takes it.

More English teams in the CL is better, show them why it's the best league on Earth.

I'm so old I remember when Ajax was a thing. Also PSV Eindhoven. Time flies like an arrow, fruit flies like a banana... and so on.

Anyone catch Totti's farewell ceremony? He's like a true skate rat, but with a ball. Still not ready to hang up his boots :'(

If you are actually the Liverpool fan you say you are you will understand that supporting United at any time will get you into all types of problems.

That was sad. I think it's been long overdue though, like he should have retired at least 2 years ago, he was always out of pace lately (and it's alright at >40yo). That was also made more evident by his position on the field.. the only one that could stroll and still make a difference was the maestro Andrea Pirlo.

Totti is an incredible player and his loyalty to the club is something that's becoming very rare nowadays. This being said I always found him to be a bit too impulsive on some crucial occasions (him and the other main man at Roma, De Rossi) and that made him and his team go missing pretty bad on some domestic and european nights.
I think that his farewell can finally start a new cycle for Roma, whose supporters have always been so attached to Totti (like a roman king) but that had sometimes bad repercussions on the board and the team (etc. hiding bad signings and squad technic-tactic errors behind the fact that the captain wasn't getting enough game time).

Legend on the pitch, genuine man with a great heart.. he'll be missed. (hopefully he doesn't go and play in Dubai or some shit next season).

Finals tomorrow in Cardiff. Pulling for Juve I think their defense holds up. Win or lose it's a huge test for 2 European giants.

 You and the D00D have turned this thread into a horrible head-on-collision between a short bus full of retarded kids and a van full of paraplegics.

I just had to tune in to the match... but I had a poor night of sleep so I slept after the first goal. When I woke up, the fourth goal was scored... whoops.

Why is faking / diving not being addressed in football ?. We do have video now, we could check whos diving and faking during the games and specially AFTER the games to hand out retroactive punishments

Its always bugged me when people in football fall to the ground rolling around like they stepped on a landmine when you have rugby players and hockey players loosing teeth, open cuts, heavy bleeding and bones broken and they still go out and play





fucking pathetic

You can call it shameful but they're playing for millions, you and I would do the same. Whatever it takes to win.

It's quite a skill really, just don't expect that shit to fly in your Monday night pickup game.

English FA is introducing retroactive banning for diving next season in the Premier League.
I think it's only if it results in a penalty or red for the "tackling" player but it's a start.

Hockey players dive more than anyone and they wear full pads.

Yeah this is typical criticism football gets from non-football fans. I remember watching the world cup abroad and practically every tackle or foul was considered a dive and laughed off. Football is in terms of motor skills a much more demanding sport at the end of the day, than most others. Having to run and dribble and keep track of your surroundings, it doesn't take much to be thrown off balance. Not to say American football or rugby don't require skill, but running with a ball in your hand is just nowhere near as dexterous.

Sorry for overposting but today anthony stokes rejoined Hibernian and I can't keep from remember the 2016 scottish cup final against rangers.
Mind Hibernian havent won one in 114 years before this.
I'm originally from faaar away from edinburgh but still sends shivers down my spine every fucking time.







Whenever I get burnt out on 'modern' football I go watch these videos. They make me want to get fucking drunk.

I've seen a fair share of diving yellows Monty. Half the time they're just taking a break, its fuckin hard running around for 90+ especially if you're getting worked. A post match fine would be ideal like 2k for a really bad one and escalating fines like the NBA implemented.

I also wasn't supportive of video review, it makes the refs look like a bunch of dickheads.

2k fine wouldn't deter them. Video reviews, as much as i dont like it, are becoming a necessity. So much can hinge on a decision that if its totally wrong that should be put right. The charity shield, Pedro got sent off for a shit challenge then Arsenal scored to draw the game with 10 mins to go. Good or bad reffing can alter a game

It really warms my heart everytime, I watch it on any shitty day.
I dont know why they didn't put a Renton 'first shag in ages' scene in T2 with this one it would have been perfect.
"Henderson to delivaaah and David Gray the captain, hibs are standing on the brick brink* of history after 114 years!"

Also Spike what's the deal with that fantasy league? Is it slap only? I'd be down for that.

*thanks bry  ;)
