I'm REALLY going to have to see a replay of that penalty in the WCL, looked like the Barcelona player ran into the back of them, screamed to alert the ref and fell over.

Looked very dodgy didn't it.....a bit like Chelsea's defending:doh:

Oh yeah it's not gonna be the reason they lost or anything but I was astonished VAR let it stand.

 

I don't know why on reflection, it's VAR, they probably penalised them for the handball in the men's match.

No the real Chelsea women you saw between about 5 and 10 minutes when they were seiging Barca's goal.

 

Although it should be noted Barca's 2021 season is

 

Played : 26

Won : 26

 

Goals for : 128

Goals Against : 5

Sheff United hitting 20 Points puts them outside the worst 5/6 (5th and 6th were both 19 points) points totals in Premier League history.

 

Probably doesn't mean that much, but they looked like giving Derby a challenge for worst ever at one point.

I mean they'd get blatted either way.

 

But that wasn't a penalty but the one in the first half was?

That should have been a penalty. The ref is a bit questionable to say the least.

I've crunched the numbers lads and it appears that at this rate Chelsea would win the next half of football 4-0 and the one after that 8-0.

 

So really this is a 12-4 aggregate win.

Alisson’s goal yesterday was probably the best of the lot of them, with the possible exception of the Schmeichel volley.

1. Alisson 2. Friedel 3 Schmeichel.

I really like Gary Neville as a pundit and he's clearly a grafter off the pitch with more brain cells than most ex-footballers.

 

He does though seem to be getting a free pass on slagging off the ESL and owners in general, what he says for the most part is fine but it's the fact he's responsible for financially doping a club way beyond its natural means with his own 'passion project' at Salford, he's literally part of the problem he's slating (and that's just one part depending on whether you want to give his Sky overlords a pass in all this).

 

Unless I'm much mistaken from the Class of 92 docs I've seen there is no golden fan share at Salford, beyond standing at games and chatting to them I've not seen evidence of fan representation at his own club - happy to be corrected if he's taken steps on this but him, his old Utd mates and Peter Lim have stuck fortunes into Salford chasing a seat at the upper end of the league system and the riches it brings.

Juventus a point behind Qualifying for the Champions League with one game to play

PSG a point behind the leader for the title with one game to play

Real a point behind the leader for the title with one game to play

 

And Possibly Liverpool or Chelsea a point behind qualifying for the Champions League with one game to play depending what happens in the penultimate game.

Talking of Spurs, here's Eric Dier standing in his vegetable garden and looking for all the world like a young offender who's been forced to work in an allotment as part of his community service.  In the movie of the story, directed by Ken Loach, he would start off surly and uncooperative, but after being mentored by a gruff older gardener, he would learn to see the beauty in growing vegetables.  There would be an understated but powerful scene of a meal with his family, where they eat carrots that young Eric grew.  At the end of the movie, he would go back to his mates who lead him astray in the first place and get up to his old tricks again, but there will be a sense that he might have learned something and, like the carrots, maybe he's grown a bit.  There will be a note of hope that perhaps Eric will one day return to the vegetable garden and make something of himself, rather than spending the rest of his days doomed to remain a mediocre defensive midfielder.
