Disappointed, wanted Barcelona and Ajax in the final instead. But this should be a good one too. Tottenham definitely have a chance. I imagine knowing Liverpool better than all their previous opponents will help...

On another note (not that anyone cares after great CL nights), my team Atalanta are having a fantastic season. Chance to qualify for the Champions League and win our cup. Fingers crossed we achieve both, who knows when will we have such an opportunity again.

I'm rooting for you in the race for Top 4. I hope Milan doesn't qualify

This is why I rate the Champions League as the best football has to offer (sorry World Cup).

The Ajax run, the Man City v Spurs game, the two semi finals.. it doesn’t get any better. Even as a Chelsea fan, seeing Liverpool and Spurs doing something incredible, probably our two biggest rivals, had me on the edge and genuinely pleased for them both. Got to feel for Ajax too, no doubt this amazing young side will be picked apart over the summer.

Yeah I agree here. UCL over World Cup for me too.

Have to say I can't recall subverted expectations being a big deal until the Star Wars director said it about the last Jedi. Then red letter media mocked it. Then all of a sudden I'm hearing it everywhere.

I'm triggered because Scott McTominay has scored more goals in the last eight games than Lukaku, Rashford, Lingard, Sanchez, Martial and Mata have combined. Quite mind blowing but then not really.

Looking forward to the champions league final and all but quite scared about what happens next for United.

Time for some positivity. I enjoyed the world cup squad reveal for England's women. It was quite different.

@Poisoned Slice and I memeing as a duo

I take it I'm Tom. :p

I wonder what odds you would have got for 2 all English breakfasts. Sorry, I lost my thoughts. I wonder what the odds would be for 2 all English finals in Europe. Was watching that debate show and Tim Sherwood thinks it is going to happen. Definitely can't rule it out. No predictions.

After the last two nights, I think we deserve a nice, boring couple of games that go as expected tonight :)

You watch now.. Chelsea go 3-0 up, draw 4-4 and go out on away goals :rolleyes:

Although it is a tough one to expect, I wish Valencia would spoil the English final perfection. And between Europa League and Copa del Rey which they are both in contention for, on the club's 100 year anniversary, I would definitely prefer to see them celebrate a continental competition. :whistle:

2018 World Cup vs this years CL so far cause we haven't seen the final yet. It's hard to choose , I will probably take the WC cause It all happened in one month , I watched so many good and I was left very surprised. This CL didn't had penalty shootouts like the WC which bring a whole new level of excitement , I remember Russia vs Spain , Colombia vs England , Croatia vs Denmark , Russia vs Croatia too. There were also great last minute winning goals/equalizer. Belgium comeback from 0-2 vs Japan and their great QF vs Brazil , Also France 4-3 Argentina , Portugal 3-3 Spain

Also, time for this or that.

Flopendowski in a UCL match or Fraud on Break Points?
Honestly , I see a higher chance of them winning with Bayern than with Dortmund so it's understandable , 3 semis in the last 4 seasons while Dortmund has been falling in CL groups and EL QF's , Also R16 taking 4-0 to Tottenham and 6-3 to Mónaco in the QF's. Plus all the domestic trophies and much higher salaries they have , It was probably worth it

It is now after so long that i understand how much we have regressed as a club since Zlatan left. Also how much the Barcelona comeback , Even if it was with referee BS decisions destroyed our team mentality.Things will be different for the club imo if that wouldn't have happened , In a positive way , Even if Juventus beats us

I think we shouldn't have splashed 400m(Not counting the wages , Mbappé is fine , But Neymar is insane) on Kylian and Neymar and instead get 6-7 quality players or just buy Kylian and buy 4 other quality players in the 50-60m range. Sure Neymar improved the club's brand a lot , But regressed the club in CL succes for more years

Just to jump ahead a bit again before the night action. I really want United to play some of the kids this weekend. It's a nothing to lose game and the chance to take a look. Not one of those bring Chong on for five minute situations. The full match.

I like Chong. He makes Willian look like he’s had a buzzcut.

Well, that's it for Valencia. :( Arsenal have scored the second away goal. No way this game finishes 5-2.

Eintracht are the only ones who can deny English perfection in Europe. Dead even tie at the moment.

Lacazette was a great deal for Arsenal at 50m. He has been a beast since his Lyon days , He comes from their rich academy. He scored 27 goals in the 2014-15 season in Ligue 1
