Isnt Turkey and Istanbul in lockdown after a surge in cases, the highest in Europe I think.

Hopefully no English fans will get near the match.

There's comfort in knowing that in the future, however many times City win it, it'll never match the number of times Everton would have won it.

Someone posted an old episode of Saint & Greavsie on Twitter the other week. I was bored off my head so watched it as it was from 1989.

 

Man City V Chelsea was a top of the table clash in the old second division.  Greavsie said that both of them are too big to be in the second division. I think if you said it would be the European Cup final one day he would have told you to fuck off and laughed in your face.

I see Spit has joined their ranks seeing as he knows he's now pissed off even the most accommodating of Liverpool fans with hisshite in recent days. He's saying Dias is better than van Dijk. Hmmm.

City were banned from the tournament by UEFA only to have it overturned by CAS. 

Chelsea were banned by UEFA from buying players for 2 years and had it reduced to 1 year by CAS. 6 of the players they have bought in that year played tonight. 

Now they are seen as the saviours of football because they pulled out of the Super League. The reason the breakaway clubs wanted the super league is to create enough finances to compete with these cheating bastards. 

Cunt clubs both

The irony is that almost every other club would kill to be in the position that City and Chelsea are in.
Everton would be top of that list, yet proudly spout about how they “called out” the breakaway six and spoke for every other club when they called for sanctions against them.

The purpose of those sanctions were to allow themselves to be bumped into a position where they could “qualify” for a European place that they hadn’t actually earned as much as anything else and to claim differently is basically a lie.
West Ham, Brighton and Crystal Palace, with rent-a-quote chairman Steve Parrish, again pontificating about how these teams should be brought to book, yet wanting to null and void last season to protect themselves against possible relegation whilst saying it was morally wrong to play on given lives were being lost.

They refuse to see that in applauding City and Chelsea for breaking away, and back into the Premier League, all that is guaranteeing is they strengthen those clubs with Oligarchs or Oil States as owners to continue dominating every competition they are in, effectively taking the competitiveness away from those very same competitions!
The ESL wasn’t handled very well in its timing or proposed implementation, but the general idea that it would possibly limit the massive money teams and allow others to challenge them was a sound one, but the blinkers were on from the time the announcement was made and the “little 14”, as opposed to the “big 6”, basically decided to hold onto what they had rather than what they might have had.

It won’t go away though and they must know that, even if the current voting regulations in the Premier League give them the whip hand, and effectively a veto, for anything the top teams might want to bring in.

A quick look at who has won the major prizes in European competition and domestic leagues over the past few seasons will show them why the current system needs changes to be made.

They’re all hypocrites though, and will bury their collective heads in the sand while the really big boys dry bum them.

Only until the 17 may mate. Lockdown doesn't apply to tourists which sits really well with me.

4000 allowed I heard.

Be interesting to see if Turkey go on the UK "red" list and the associated quarantine.

They should mould a special trophy for this years final and have it made out of plastic. Seems appropriate given the finalists.

Well poaching youngsters aside no danger of FSG getting us banned from Europe for splashing too much cash. Then again with current investment methodology we won't need to worry about Europe for a while. 

Ironically I believe it was our success over the past two seasons that drove the massive investment these two clubs made prior to and during covid they saw an opportunity to steal a march on the rest . It will be a difficult road back to the summit if Klopp can do it once more he will be our greatest manager ever based on the corruptness of his opposition during his tenure.

Pulling out of the ESL after announcing it's been formed is like getting out of get-away car after the robbery and claiming you never wanted to be part of it.

 

Unbelievable how the narrative has been spun.

 

Money doesn't just buy you the best players, it buys you the best PR too.

They have ruined footy in UK. It's like F1 and only one car is allowed unlimited budget and all the rest are 2 laps behind and fat cunts are dribbling and saying how great it is. It's fucking nuts.

Haha, UEFA indicating the final will go ahead in Istanbul and ignoring calls from the self proclaimed guardians of English football to switch it to England.

 

Just more reason to null and void it because, well, people's lives mean more. Give it a massive fucking asterisk as well, cunts!

Clubs like even Leicester 5 years ago, Tottenham and us can compete in short bursts but it’s unsustainable when the likes of City and Chelsea just up the ante and outspend the rest. After Leicester’s win, City spent £180m that summer and £280m the next. Klopp has performed a magnificent Canute impression over the last few years but it’s simply not sustainable over a long period unless you have owners for whom even a global pandemic isn’t a constraint on massive spending. 
Butt the the dullards in the media don’t seem to get this. It’s no surprise that the only two clubs across Europe who were able to spend significantly last summer are contesting UEFA’s showpiece final.

In the CL Final, I still see Citeh as the lesser of 2 evils. 
 

Those games from 2005 onwards v Chelsea were toxic. I don’t think the Citeh games have got near that level of hatred yet.

Really? I don't want City getting their hands on the one thing they have been after since their owners pumped obscene amounts of money into them. 

 

And I say as much as I can't stand Chelsea, shit choice either side of the fence.

    • I think they do. In the 90s and a bit later we would spend nearly as much as united in transfer fees but we would buy 4 or 5 average players like we were trying to build a team every window or at least thats how it felt thinking back. United just saw a weak spot in the team or a player moved on and they went an bought what they believed to be the best replacement for big money. Once you've built the top side its harder to improve but when that top player comes along who would improve you,  you buy him. We have loads of quiet transfer windows for me that should mean for examples sake if say Halaand is on the market we should be able to buy him without all the fans turning into bean counters and complete panic about the financial repercussions. We are Liverpool 19 times league champions, 6 times European cup winners we should be able to act like a Billy big bollocks in the market now and then because we don't go big or even medium most windows, the books dont need to be balanced at the end of every window, we can carry debt or profit into the next ones depending on the teams needs.   In my opinion we need a midfielder and possibly a forward if that means this window we spend more than we've earnt so be it, the next summer window we will undoubtedly sell one of our forwards and a few of our midfielders, the most important thing is the time in-between the windows the team needs to be competing for titles, our weaknesses need to be addressed so we can remain on top, everyone has different opinions on our weaknesses mine is way too many injury prone midfielders with the likes of Kieta and Ox who when given chances the rare times they ate fit don't take them.   FSG said the redbird investment meant we are were we should be if there was no pandemic it reset the losses, now the deal is out of mind we hear of the devastating effect of corona.    I'm not even arsed, the window is still open, if it ends and we've just signed konate and some kids I'd say they haven't done enough this window but I'll get over it as said a million times Klopp is our superstar and FSGs golden Goose.
    • For the Palace game i think we only had about 10k capacity. my Dad didn't have a smartphone so was told to pick up a paper ticket from the ticket office. We were told what time to go in the ground with the NFC passes and i think the window was between 1 hour and 15 mins before KO so that suited me. we went to the office to pick up his ticket and there was a massive spiraling queue accumulating outside for people whose NFC passes weren't working-scanning issues and downloading. The queue wasn't moving particular fast so a few must have missed KO. The pre season friendlies should help them get their act together but i wouldn't take any risks on getting to the ground late for the first few league games next season. Somewhere like the kemlyn is full of old men so i'd give yourself even more time if sitting there
    • I think what we see with FSG is something that is particular to FSG rather than being a widespread feature of modern football. They are what Tom Wolfe labelled 'Masters of the Universe', thinking that everything they do is brilliance and they don't consult the little people on anything. Other owners are happy to bob along hoping something will turn up rather than actively changing things. FSG, on the other hand, are not ones for leaving well enough alone. The ESL is the classic example of this. They think the financial basis of football is nuts and something must be done about it. The ESL is something, therefore we have to do it. In fairness, you can add expanding Anfield and hiring Jurgen Klopp to your list. And before anyone says they were no-brainers, staying at Anfield was not the consensus choice among the fanbase, many of whom were seduced by the shiny new thing - gee, where can we see that at play now? - and Klopp could have had his choice of clubs, yet it was FSG who landed him.
    • Lee Clark is OK by me. When I was still in high school he lived near some mates of mine and always used to come out and play football with us if he saw us playing. 
    • Also FSG isn’t a hedge fund. Henry made his money through having a hedge fund, FSG is a sports investment vehicle. They aim to make money from sport.
