UEFA Champions League, UEFA Super Cup, FIFA Club World Cup and Premier League. I'm not sure about the order.

I watched a game today reminiscent of the 1974 World Cup semifinal between Poland and West Germany. The field was absolutely flooded. Mind you, the players didn't stay on the ground very long after being fouled. :P

Wembley, even without the crowd, looks great. Yeah, it got a little tense right around the red card, but I think Exeter in the end took the loss in a humble way. If this had been played with South American teams, we would've had a bloodbath on our hands.

I love Argentinian football.  I heartily recommend a great read about it, "Angels With Dirty Faces" by Jonathon Wilson.  I`ve been a fan since I was 10, originally just to be contrary when everyone was complaining about Maradona`s "hand of god" goal.

Wait, you were ok with that "goal?" You're a better man than me. I'm still boiling mad about a referee from 20 years ago. :blush:

I like it when players push the boundaries (Suarez vs Ghana for example, I thought was hilarious)  - Argentinian defenders with safety pins to stab attackers at corners is borderline but... well... anything to get an edge :finbar:

Except with VAR in place, this kind of stuff wouldn't go unpunished nowadays. Back to the drawing board...

I suspect Pep Guardiola may have a point to prove ..... although it could well turn out to be a cagey scoreless draw. I would love to see Liverpool hammer them though!!

Of course you want to win every game you play, but the pressure is off now. Even if Liverpool doesn't win, it will change nothing. They are the top dog this year.
