Real Madrid (N) - Champions League Final, Sat 28th May 2022 (8:00pm)

Recommended Posts

Never thought I would say it but I would rather have Kieta than a half fit Fab. Every time he has come back from injury it takes time for him to hit his imperious best form in fact if we honest he can have an absolute shocker . If Ox is fit I would not be surprised to see a Kewell duration cameo. Ffs I would nearly play the Greek or Robbo in midfield  but would certainly have the both of them on the left hand side of the pitch.

Fresh, fit, and in form, I'd be confident.

 

But we look increasingly jaded, are missing key players in midfield, and have the likes of Salah, Jota, and even our full backs struggling to do their thing...

Well this is more encouraging as @MegadriveMan said on Thiagos thread if we can get an hour or something approaching that out of him then it's a chance worth taking especially as we have 5 subs available

In 1977, we lost the cup final to the mancs. Emlyn Hughes was the captain. Everyone was down. But he said, we'll win the European Cup next week, and we did. Without this final, we'd only have a summer of frustration. Now we have one more big game. I'm going to blank out all the moaning and whining and watch the game next week with hope, you know, like the song says.

I really hope we deliver next week as well.

If he is remotely close i'd say take risk...painkilling jab or whatever they do.

 

No more games to come after it....5 subs if does not work....

My big worry is that we do look absolutely knackered. Mentally and physically. 

 

Usually you can point to something, a poor player, a poor performance, a weakness something to get your teeth into. We have none of that, on our day I back us 100% but the negative side of me thinks that we're going to have to shithouse our way through this game if we're going to win it. 

 

They deserve nothing but credit, and maybe in light of yesterday I'm at a negative disposition, its going to be hard.

...... A lot of you guys love this stuff, but I can expect that some of you think they’re shite and/or are bored of them......

You're doing a tremedous job Trumo. I really appreciatye your eftorts.

 

As for the final my only concern is the spaces left behind by TAA and Keita not covering.

 

If Thiago's not avaiable I'd be tempted to start with a midfield 3 of Hendo, Fab and Harvey/Curtiis instead of Keita, Maybe even consider Milner.

I dont often get worried about fixtures but this one does worry me. We're running on fumes and have some injury concerns. The Sport Science Department said of the 2019 final that if Spurs had scored first, they considered the team didnt have enough in the tank to have come from behind to win.

 

This team has a dont know when beaten attitude. Madrid always seem to spawn results in this competition. We're going to need to be perfect to win this. Going to pens will see me hiding behind the sofa I think!

At least we haven't got a game in midweek. I think we've played twice a week since mid February.

 

Madrid aren't great but as said above, they always seem to spawn results in the CL.

It's the last game of the season. And a huge game. They've been caught between chasing the title and not shattering themselves for a couple of months or more. That's gone, too. Now there's one simple target, a huge adrenaline rush of the showcase final and all the glory to get. I doubt tiredness will come into it next weekend, at least until Extra time.

We played at a very high tempo for long stretches trying to blow Wolves away so it's not surprising we seemed to tire a bit in the last 20. But we still had enough to control the game and win. I don't expect tiredness to be a big issue on Saturday particularly with  the option of five subs.

    • he newly appointed Chancellor and Warwickshire MP Nadhim Zahawi has created a sprawling £100 million property portfolio, along with his wife and their companies, the Mirror has reported. Mr Zahawi, who represents Stratford-upon-Avon, previously worked as Education Secretary, and before that rose to prominence as vaccine minister, helping to deliver the Government's rollout of the jab. © PA Nadhim Zahawi leaving 10 Downing Street following the resignation of Rishi Sunak yesterday His new role comes following the resignation of Rishi Sunak who quit as Chancellor having lost confidence in Prime Minister Boris Johnson. Mr Zahawi came to the UK aged nine after being born in Iraq to a Kurdish family, who fled the regime of Saddam Hussein.   Believed to be one of the richest politicians in the House of Commons, estimates of his net worth range from £30 million to £100 million. He has refused to confirm the amount, previously telling the Telegraph: "I've been very lucky in life." He helped found the polling company YouGov and along with his wife, owns a huge property empire, which includes a country home and stables, a £20 million London townhouse, a number of high-street properties and an industrial estate. A Mirror investigation previously found that more than half were purchased while Mr Zahawi was serving as a Government minister. Seven of the properties bought for over £10 million are mortgage-free, and two more were partially-funded by £10 million loans from Mr Zahawi's wife Lana. Read more: Chancellor Nadhim Zahawi: Everything you need to know about the Warwickshire MP The Zahawis personally own five residential properties, worth at least £17 million - three in London, one in Warwickshire (where his constituency is) and one in Dubai. The home near Warwick, a country house with stables, was bought for £875,000 in 2011. One of Mr Zahawi's firms purchased the £3.5 million Chunnel industrial estate in Ashford Kent, by the Eurotunnel train station, and his wife Lana Zahawi now owns two superstores, including a £6.3 million plot home to a giant Co-op and car park in St Neots, Cambridgeshire. Another company controlled by Mr Zahawi owns £18 million worth of land containing an Asda megastore in Brierley Hill, West Midlands. Since it was bought four years ago, its value has increased by £1.25 million. There is no suggestion that he has breached the Ministerial Code. In 2013 it was reported that Mr Zahawi had claimed the livery's £5822.27 heating bill on expenses, which he said he had done by mistake and repaid. At the time he posted a statement on his website saying: " Since last week's coverage of my energy bills I have been looking into them further and can confirm that all claims for heating fuel relate purely to my second home. " However I have made a mistake with my electricity claims. On investigation I have discovered that the electricity supply for a mobile home located in the stable yard and for the stables themselves was linked to my house. " Whilst a meter was installed in the stable yard I have only been receiving one bill, it was wrong to assume I was receiving two and to have not checked this sooner. I am mortified by this mistake and apologise unreservedly for it. " I will obviously be paying back any money that was wrongly claimed immediately and have already contacted IPSA [Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority] regarding the correct procedure."
    • Keir starmer please take note 
    • Well, if it wasn't for all those Jews he'd beaten up, I'd agree. That and the tattoo of a swastika is a dead giveaway.    I mean, it's crazy. I very much think he handled the whole situation poorly from a managerial perspective as LOTO, and I feel the report backed that up, but 'dangerous anti-Semite'. Okay bud. The entire thing has run rampant, and there's barely a middle road to tread where he's concerned. He's either the saviour of all things, or he's the devil. It's a myth. The fuckin' lot of it.
    • Got a semi-satisfactory result as I couldn't be arsed with the messing about cancelling and changing providers.   So I managed to keep my monthly payments (£94) instead of the £132.50 they were going to increase to next month, kept evetything as it was (Bt Sport and Sky Sports included) but I have added the Sky Cinema package and Netflix for no extra cost, I already have and pay for Netflix so I'm actually better off as I moved the monthly Netflix cost onto my Virgin bill.   Just goes to show what bandits they are though that a phone call and threat to cancel has them improving my package.
    • This is the thing with the Tories. They're all acting like we've just found out he's a lying, deceitful, corrupt, selfish cunt. There's one on the BBC right now saying how they elected him "in good faith" and the interviewer said "but you knew who you were electing".    Edit.... He's George freeman apparently, calling for Johnson to go now.
