I think Chelsea are probably a better side. Depends which Hazard turns up I suppose.
Scampstradamus is a ****ing fraud.

I said that to the old man at half time, it's been all Arsenal but they haven't really had any actual chances.

Unlucky DLD mate, Iwobi's goal was spectacular so take that tiny positive?

yeah I noted Ars had no shots on target in the first half and wonder whether Chelski concluded that there wasn't much threat and they could go for the jugular after the break

Where's SW6 aka 'Champions of Europe'??

Anyway, now we have the piddly cup out of the way, we can look forward to the proper one! Already starting to feel nervous, this is so big for us Spurs fans, winning would be unreal, but just to be in a CL final knocking out City and Ajax on the way, is really enough for me, I don't think I've ever looked forward to a football match more!

So other than Spoogle and Kimi, who are you all supporting in this one?

I'm supporting Spurs, for a number of reasons:

1. **** Liverpool and their awful, horrid, disgraceful fans.
2. Spurs fans clearly appreciate this more which is cute.
3. Underdogs'r'us. It's who we all want to win.
4. Liverpool's fans - they're ***** and don't deserve joy.
5. Spurs would be a real shake up to the Champions League elite. The last time a non-monster won it, maybe Porto? It just doesn't happen.
6. Liverpool's fans - the whinging victims deserve to suffer.

I reckon that covers it.

You think you had it rough? We finished the '99 season in 17th, staying up by the skin of our teeth. We were in the relegation zone from game 2 to game 35. Escaping by winning the last 3 - I think mostly thanks to Beattie, Pahars and maybe Le God. Certainly no thanks to Dave Jones the kiddy fiddler. Anyway it just helped to cement the love an 11 year old Scamp had for one of the shittest teams in England.

Arsenal don't really have any players to fear, I didn't see Lacazette or Aubameyang do anything at all yesterday and they should never have signed Ozil as he never wanted to leave Madrid. The last player they had that had me worried was Sanchez and he rarely did anything against us either. Who knows though, maybe with all the players they have leaving on free transfers they'll free up some funds and get a world beater, or better yet a decent physio so their players don't spend so much time injured.Could be worse though, they could've still been paying Wilshire a wage for the 7 or 8 games he played this season, and they call scousers theives.

Hmm that looks like a near perfect analysis to me although the scousers on here are pretty decent types compared to the rest of them....

17th in the PL was some 30 places higher than us.....

Was the Europa Cup TV crappy, it seemed to have a very wide field of view most of the time. Very far back leaving the players looking like ants.

Match day! Didn’t sleep much last night, can’t eat, is this what it feels like to be in a CL final?

I assume you aren't asking Mike, Scamp, DLD and Zargie as I am pretty sure their teams haven't played in a CL final

touche..

We've been too busy winning everything everything at home instead. I can cope with missing out on 1 trophy especially given the bias some in UEFA have against us.

Don't start relying on your history to make points as that makes you as bad as many scousers.....
