Funny story from Poland. A fan of one of the away teams travelled to the city where his club was playing, rented a crane, placed it near the stadium, and was able to watch his beloved squad live from a bird's eye view. :notworthy:

True Fan.
Another guy did it in one of the lower leagues, and this time he brought a friend with him. He phoned 23 crane companies, 21 of them laughed him off. Two decided to entertain his request. He picked the cheaper one.
that's a good pic

They're letting fans into the stadiums now, so the crane soap opera is over. :rose:

Liverpool 4-0 Crystal Palace

Finally, back to some form! Of course, Direct TV screwed me and didn't record the English-language version, so I got to watch to the match in Spanish. Whether gol or goal, it was a good time.

Was the commentator yelling "Goooooooooooooool" or just "Gooool?"

It was a very assured performance .... one of their better performances this season (crowd or no crowd). The league could be over tonight although I think Man City will be
too strong for Chelsea.

I can't decide if my hatred for Chelsea is stronger than for those arriviste Citizens . . . I think it is, yes. But I'd prefer a 0-0 draw, honestly.

As for the announcer, it was that Andres Something guy, so it was "Gooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooool! Ah, [intake of breath] Goooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooolllllllllllllllllll!"

That was the only reason I was hoping Liverpool wouldn't hit a fifth.

You are referring to Andres Cantor, who does the soccer play-by-play in Spanish for a number of games, primarily for Telemundo.  I would frequently switch back and forth between ABC's broadcast of the World Cup and Telemundo's simultaneous broadcast of Copa Mundial just to hear Andres.  A lot of the other Spanish speaking broadcasters now imitate the goal call, but Andres Cantor is da man!

Andres Cantor, yes, that's the breathy fellow. Sort of oddly appropriate last name, consider his ability to sustain.

Forget cranes, I hear a guy rented a plane for the Burnley-Manchester City game. ;)  Brave man, too bad he won't have a life now. Oh, and Lineker, you suck.

So happy to see the title back where it belongs. Wish it could have happened at Anfield in front of a packed stadium, but this will do. YNWA

Bundesliga.com conducted a vote for the best player of the season involving fans and experts. The results: 1) Robert Lewandowski 57% 2) Jadon Sancho 13% 3) Kai Havertz 12.1%  That's more like it. :)
