  1. Bartley scores from about 5 yards out, Alisson would have to be Dash from the Incredibles to keep that out even with a clear line of sight.
  2. This is definitely going to get lost in the understandable bitterness of that totally ridiculous offside decision. But that was a fantastic header, right in the corner.
  3. Leicester fans too, some knuckleheads behind me were.
  4. I honestly think we were done if that had counted. To get so close and not see it through would have been awful and our formation would have been an absolute mess for extra time.
  5. I think part of it is that we (some of us) were there yesterday. As much as I wouldn’t change a thing about the title win, having the critical goal be scored in a game we weren’t involved in meant we never got that one explosive moment of delirium that we had when Tielemans scored yesterday.
  6. If somebody with better IT skills than me could transpose some Alan Partridge commentary onto the Tielemans goal I’d be forever in your debt...
  7. The commentary on this is atrocious!
  8. Hopefully people will finally stop comparing him to his dad and just recognise that he is a top class goalkeeper in his own right. 10-15 years ago we barely had a player who stayed at the club more than 2-3 seasons. To have had players like Schmeichel, Vardy, Albrighton, Morgan and before them King stick around for such a long period is really special thing and for the likes of Schmeichel to keep improving is testament to the club’s coaching and his professionalism.
  9. I never thought anything would top the Cambiasso goal against Man United in the 5-3 for my favourite goal of all time. This is so far ahead of that. Old school, brilliant goal from probably my favourite ever player to win us the Cup for the first time. Legend.
  10. This is a really good example of what it means for this club to be in an FA Cup Final. The Big 6 take this sort of thing for granted, this is our first FA Cup Final for 52 years and our first final of any sort for 21 years. It’s hard to imagine any Chelsea fans are going to be as worked up about their 4th final in 5 years as we will be about our first in 52.
  11. I can’t get over how bad that goalkeeping was for the 4th goal, I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like that in professional football.
  12. Also I should add: It is unfair on Liverpool and West Ham and Everton. It’s not just Liverpool chasing the CL positions.
  13. I don’t remember anybody complaining about the integrity of the league when we made loads of changes for the Palace game this season and the West Ham game last season. That said, let’s have this right. Plenty of Leicester fans would be absolutely raging if the shoe was on the other foot. It is unfair on Liverpool, but **** them, they didn’t want to be in the Champions League anyway two weeks ago.
  14. Don’t get upset about it, we’ve managed to benefit from the fact that he’s basically one of the most obsessive Man United fans going, so obsessed with history and tradition that he’d happily play a reserve team today to spite Liverpool.
  15. If you’d told me on Saturday morning that a win against Spurs would see us into next season’s Champions League I’d have snapped your hand off. Got to get the job done from here.
  16. Fantastic second half after a pretty poor first half. That was obviously a significantly weakened United side but getting a win in those circumstances will give everybody a lift before Saturday. Hopefully Chelsea stumble tomorrow...
  17. No excuses today, this is an 11 United have never fielded before and will never field again. We’ve seen in the past in cup games and at the start of seasons how difficult it is to gel players not used to playing with each other.
  18. For some perspective it’s worth noting that this massively weakened Manchester United side cost about £210 million. Our XI against Newcastle was pretty much the most expensive one we could realistically have picked and was also about £210 million.
  19. It really doesn’t help that this game is at 6. It feels like both an interminably long build-up and also no build-up at all
  20. The line between success and failure is incredibly thin now. Two successive collapses at the end of the season will likely haunt Rodgers’ ambitions of landing a job at an elite club which is obviously completely daft given that in the cold light of day back-to-back 5th placed finishes is very good. On the other hand, win the FA Cup and finish 4th and he’s a hero with a massively enhanced CV. In a logical industry with more fairly distributed wealth it would make sense to judge Rodgers on his whole body of work at the club which is undoubtedly impressive. Unfortunately in fo
  21. We’ve lost more home games this season than we did in the Great Escape season.
