Wait a minute, did Liverpool come back from a 3-0 loss in the previous game?
Of all the things I’ve lost, I miss my mind the most.

Just landed at SFO with 2 minutes left and maybe 50 people roaring their approval. Absolutely incredible, Remainers suddenly rear their defeated heads dealing my Brexit prediction a swift kick in the sackaroni!

What. a. game!!!

That corner for the 4-0 gave a whole new meaning to the word slick... but wow, well deserved, Liverpool were galactic today.
Surprising though how much Barcelona dropped off compared to last week

Quite amazingly, Barcelona did the same last year, in the quarter final against AS Roma, 4-1 home, return 3-0 and they were out.

Wow...I guess Liverpool channeled the 2005 team...and more. Oh, and they did this without Salah and Firmino.

Now go go Ajax tomorrow.

I am trying to decide if that or the Dan Marino fake spike TD is the best fake out ever, talk about opening up a goal for your team.

Funny enough, the German "Sportschau" (one of the most important sports and, more specifically, football prime time TV programs) posted a meme on their facebook page along the lines of:

Trent XWB Engine - lets an Airbus A350 take off
Trent Alexander-Arnold - made Anfield take off last night

[I took the liberties of improving the type designation in the engine example for the target audience here but the comparison between Trent and Trent is entirely their credit :D ]

Man...a crazy finish. Too bad Ajax is the side that lost.

An all-English final, and at least this makes it easy for me to pick which side to root for.

Me as well, what a game, Ajax totally out played Spurs in the first half and Spurs took the second.

Ajax looked great, I hope they can keep the team together, that was fun football to watch.

They’d be better off moving it to Wembley.

Two of the most astonishing semi-finals of any football competition ever. All-English final. Who'd have thought that a week ago? :crazy: :faint:

Being part of UEFA is not and has never been dependent on being in the EU, or even in Europe itself. I assure you I’m no fan of Brexit, but you completely misunderstand what UEFA is.

Commiserations on the loss.

I am afraid that you misunderstood, my reaction was pure frustration on gloating of a Brexitremist. Last 2 seconds, man.

The whole competition is ridiculous.

The two finalists have not been Champions since the 1960s (Spurs) or 1980s (Liverpool).

Bring back the European Cup.

Can't wait for the Brits to leave :D

This was, despite the fact my team was out rather early, so far a very exciting CL, here is hoping for a great final.

There are more than a few. Robertson, Alexander-Arnold, Milner, Henderson, Sturridge, Gomez, Lallana, Oxlade-Chamberlain for Liverpool, Dier, Alli, Kane, Trippier, Rose, Winks for Spurs. 4-5 players from the same country is about the norm for a starting XI for top European clubs.

Of course, if Chelsea plays like how they play today, Arsenal should finally win a trophy that’s not call Emirates Cup (does that still exist?).

Europa League final is a joke.

Arsenal and Chelsea fans only given 6,000 tickets each in a 60,000 Stadium in Baku.

Move it to Wembley and give true fans 45,000 tickets to each team.

Purely in the name of reducing global warming, finals should be played somewhere closer to home in these cases.

There might be an argument that Wembley favors a London team, so perhaps Paris would be a sensible neutral venue.

Likewise if two Spanish teams were in the final, Lisbon might be appropriate.

Baku should be first reserve for the next time two teams from opposite ends of Europe end up together; say Spartak Moscow and Roma. Then, with everybody required to travel some distance (probably by air), Baku becomes as good an option as any other.
Nothing to see here; move along please.
