Liverpool fan in peace.
Well done on tonight. You might think it's strange I say this, but hopefully it's an English double in Europe.

Fair play pal.

07 May 2021 07:27:37
It’s a good testament to English football that 3 finalists and 1 nearly through. Arsenal seem to be rudderless atm though, I don’t see Arteta lasting much longer.

06 May 2021 22:21:06
Well, job done, strange game, Roma was so open they allowed Bruno to do whatever he liked and Cavani to run anywhere he liked and they paid for that. Saying that DdG saved about 8 goals and Telles was rinsed in that chaotic spell I dunno how many times. Second gear I guess but shipping 5 goals to an average roma shows me where our weakness lies. We played some unbelievable stuff aswell, given time and space we can defeat anyone. Villarreal in the final will be tough I recall thee series of 0-0s in the past, are they still as pragmatic today? If so, be a tough final breaking them down.

I think that Roma attack is pretty good when it clicks WRD. It was almost as if that roma have been assembled to be out bogey team. Well it didn't work, so maybe they will have to go for one of our ex managers.

We should have scored 3 in the first half, we had easily the best chances early. Cavini missed 2 gilt edge chances. Second half they rode their luck a bit.

Anyone wondering why fred and McTom play, it was clear tonight. So open.

But a final to look forward to, and a solid finish in league.

07 May 2021 06:09:39
Our goals against is good, just a very strange tie.

07 May 2021 07:31:48
I don't think our defence is any good at all, opinions like. Shaw very poor defensively, Maguire is our best CB yet he is himself prone to a stupid decision, Bailly I like but erratic, Lindelof for me is bang average, wan bissaka is our best defensive defender, Telles is awful, Brandie is ok, those descriptions don't win you premier leagues or champions leagues, we play x2 DM to cover these shortcomings and you see in an open game with x1 DM we ship 5 to an average Roma team. World class CB needed desperately then maybe ditch the x1 DM.

06 May 2021 22:17:29
Wow, how poor was that, l understand players are lazy being 4 up from first leg, but again tonight it was clear that:
1 We need our defence sorted, a fast vocal, organising CB should be our No 1 priority in the summer.
2 Pogba can't play defensive midfield, he's best either on the left or right of a diamond or out wide in the left of a four
3 DVB offers nothing to our team and style of play
4 If Cavani leaves we need a top class CF to replace him.
5 DeGea is still up for the fight to be our No 1 again.

Interesting to see the team for the final, a few decisions to make, McFred will start in the middle, Pogba on the left, Rash in the right and De Gea in goal, the rest pick themselves really. ?

Agree1 Disagree0

06 May 2021 22:44:50
And yet we win comfortably.

06 May 2021 22:54:58
I think that's the team he will play in the final too if all are fit. Although I'd rather see rash left pogba right.
Great display by ddg.
Donny was not involved very much at all he would be better off getting a move to a side that plays differently. I agree ole ball is not for him .
Cavani is great. He is a great cf even still. I hope he stays.
Great to be in the final we will be strong favourites we have better players but they will be no pushover.

07 May 2021 08:59:04
I will don my armour - ready- Rashford at this time is not worth a starting place ; the lad has had continuous injuries over a prolonged period and is running on adrenalin after 2 mins. He needs a complete rest imo.

07 May 2021 10:18:19
I completely agree about Rashford. I would argue that he just isn't good enough for top level, others will argue that he is injured and/ or exhausted. Either way, he shouldn't be playing right now and the manager should recognise that. Cavani up front, Pogba left, Bruno 10, Greenwood right. But Ole will shoe-horn in his favourites.

07 May 2021 12:27:14
Until he injured his back last year, Rashford was carrying the team, people have very short memories. This year he has been inconsistent and even poor but he is playing with injuries, not sure that is doing h8m or the club any good.

07 May 2021 13:03:20
totally agree Tony that's why i said he needs complete rest- his game has changed because he is injured or not 100% and also striking up a rapport with pogba on left isn't there yet. Over last 2 seasons he is left wingewr, right winger and striker not only in different games but in the same game- that doesn't help him either but even then he has a pretty decent goal return that would be 10 goals better if he was left to fully recover.

06 May 2021 22:14:23
Talk about making it hardwork. Roma were unlucky to not go through tonight.

At least we have made it past a semi under Ole. Hopefully we can beat Villareal in the final.

Agree1 Disagree0

06 May 2021 23:01:17
Wouldn’t quite go that far, they lost 8-5 and we never got out of 2nd gear tonight, especially 2nd half where we rested a few. They needed 4 more goals to get through, wouldn’t say they were unlucky.

06 May 2021 23:28:47
Ddg played great tonight but I can't agree that roma were unlucky not to go through.
I don't think 6 or 7 goals would have flattered them tonight but we could also have had another couple.
Decent game to watch for what was effectively a dead rubber.

07 May 2021 08:33:10
Ken,

It's not how well you play, it's about taking your chances.

Roma didn't take their chances. Another night and we might have been pushed through to extra time.

07 May 2021 11:49:59
So MH if you miss your chances your not unlucky you have done badly ergo they are not unlucky.

07 May 2021 12:37:12
Cavani missed 2 sitters in the first half. One where he lobbed keeper onto bar, one where he blasted the ball at the keepers face. They were better than any of the scrappy chances roma created.

It was a dead game and roma were playing for pride.

06 May 2021 22:06:57
Roma had 22 shots, having 13 on target.

What tonight proves is:

1. We can't play without a defensive double pivot. We complain about McFred but simply without that defensive cover in midfield we concede far too many chances.

2. This idea that the "right" partner will make Maguire a better player is just not true. Bailly is quicker and can cover him in theory. Yet in reality when a defender has to cover for another then the area they should be covering is left undefended.

While a striker and a RW would be good additions (and we need them) surely tonight proves where our true weaknesses lie.

06 May 2021 22:45:48
And yet we win a semi final comfortably and still moaning.

07 May 2021 06:05:51
Someone trying to be Mr Positive in all posts.

07 May 2021 06:11:14
One game in a tie that was already over doesn't prove anything.

06 May 2021 21:54:21
Dictate the tempo, keep the opposition quiet, control the game. there was none of that tonight 🤣 BUT the hard work was done in the second half last week and we are in the final. Well done to ole and the lads, NOW let's go finish the job off 🙏🤞.

Agree2 Disagree0

06 May 2021 22:09:47
We LOST the game. On the night, what’s to be happy about?

06 May 2021 22:13:23
Agree tim congrats to all.

{Ed014's Note - good luck in the final Ken!

06 May 2021 22:36:27
I’m happy about being in the final…would have preferred a much more controlled boring game tonight but it didn’t happen, it’s a good job we had that purple patch last week! In the end we are in the final and if we win it then how we got there will be irrelevant 🤷‍♂️.

06 May 2021 23:02:31
Scooby,

We won the tie mate, doesn’t matter about the 2nd leg after we already got through, who cares, final here we come! Get in!

{Ed0666's Note - very true who cares how you get there as long as you’re in a European final. Good luck.

06 May 2021 23:14:15
Im delighted to be in the final. Winning breeds winning.
You and I differ in opinion on the squad I think we have good players in depth better than all outside of Chelsea and city and we also have some very good players.
Mcfred as shappy says bring stability and make 'oleball' effective. Its been a really tough watch at times for my liking but if ole wins this he has earned the right (in my opinion for the 1st time) to continue in his job and have another crack at it next season. Personally I still have no faith in him making the next step but he will have earned the right to have a go.

My own personal opinion is that a different manager would be able to make the next giant leap with this squad with 2 or 3 additions.
I've enjoyed it more with cavani up there instead of martial. He just gives me a headache.

Shaw has been great all season.
Bruno carried all the inventive threat so if he was snuffed we were painful to watch. But now pogba is throwing in a few better performances greenwood too .
Winning breeds winning of course its not the cl but you can only win what your in and winning it gives hope and confidence for a better effort next season.

06 May 2021 09:59:18
As good as city are how lucky have they been to have virtually no competition in the champions league, barring Bayern every other team is below average. Why did we have to face probably the best club side there's ever been in 2 finals. I'm not bitter HONEST.

Agree1 Disagree0

06 May 2021 10:22:51
Yep with Real, Barcelona and Juve all struggling this year with ageing squads and coming to the end of their cycle, it has worked out well for city.

But they are comfortably the best team in europe at the moment all things considered and deserve to be in the final on merit.

I think the kicker for us has to be chelsea, in january they were languishing in 9/ 10th position in the league under lampard, basically where arsenal were and just like that bringing in tuchel a quality coach have turned their season around.

It makes going out to leipzig all the more difficult to take as i feel with the poor quality in the champions league this season we could have potentially followed a similar route to the final as chelsea have done.

06 May 2021 14:04:44
Bayern are still the best side in Europe for me. Gnabry and Lewandowski they missed massively against PSG and I believe they would have sailed through if they were both available.

06 May 2021 15:45:22
I say fair play to them and well done on getting this far.
Not much Blackpool🤣🤣.

06 May 2021 16:08:13
A lot of teams are struggling or rebuilding but this City team is very very good. I expect them to win it.

06 May 2021 17:00:51
They are a brilliant team but how good will they be when Pep leaves?
I think he's the reason why they are so consistently good.
It's going to be almost impossible to replace like we found out when Fergie left.

06 May 2021 19:26:33
As much as I can't stand City I don't think there is any doubt that they have been the best and most consistent team this year.
They have skill and tough players across the pitch. Foden is starting to look a real quality player.
