    He's just about the most overrated keeper I've ever seen.

    Meanwhile, how can you root for anyone buy Ajax? Knocked of Real Madrid and Juventus.

    And have looked great in the process. Would be really cool to see them win, and I don't see why they can't. There's no dominant looking team left.

    What craziness at Etihad today. I kinda feel for City. I felt like the last Spurs goal shouldn't have been allowed. The ref didn't see the view where you could see the arm muscle reacting to the ball hitting him. It wasn't super clear, but I think had he seen that view, he may have reversed it.

    This may not be a popular view, but I'd like to see offsides get changed to the entire body, and not just any part of the body. The last City goal was clearly offsides, but it was by so little, that no real advantage is gained. I'd love to see that play no longer be offisides.

    It took only one week for the need to post this same thing. Both goals against City yesterday really should have been saved by a top tier goalkeeper. They were good shots and not any run of the mill keeper would have saved them, but I don't think either one should have gotten by an upper echelon keeper.

    I know they have metrics that shows he stops more shots that he shouldn't than other keepers, but he consistently gives up ones he shouldn't as well. I wonder if the last 12 months will drop him in these lists. Seems like everything out there ranking goalkeepers has him at the top. I wouldn't want him in the goal for an important game.

    Again today, gifting the equalizer to Chelsea. I hate to see it because he was an excellent keeper IMO for a long time, but when a guy is 28 and suddenly has a bad case of the yips...

    Anyone else see the clip of the Leeds/Aston Villa game today? That's definitely a new one for me.

    Every part of that was bizarre from the original goal when Aston Villa has stopped playing, to the fighting, to the then conceded goal. I'm glad that Leeds righted the wrong, though.

    Is Arsenal the new Tottenham? A draw today pretty much assures them of a 5th place finish.

    1 point out of 12 in the last four. Could have easily finished third.

    Still have a shot to win Europa and get in that way.

    Tottenham's been trying to be the old Tottenham, but luckily for them they had enough cushion, what with Arsenal and United staggering to the finish also. Amazing that for all Chelsea's problems they'll be in the Champions League and will probably end up third just by not totally falling apart down the stretch.

    Sarri did a good job with that team. Changed the style of play, but kept it within the realm of his roster's skill set.

    If Barca doesn't score in the next 10 minutes, Liverpool will have pulled off a truly epic second-leg comeback. Should have known nothing good would come of me rooting for Barca.

    That is absolutely bonkers. Perhaps one of the most unlikely final scores in futbol history given what was on the line. Especially given who Liverpool was missing in this one. I am astounded.
    Well, that's what those words mean. He was here. If they don't keep him, he will have been lost/subtracted. I headed out the door today with two shoes on my feet. If I don't return with them, I have lost them. If I do return with them, I haven't added them. ---M2

    I can’t believe any of that.

    That play from Alexander-Arnold on the quick kick corner and Origi being ready for it is one of the coolest things I have ever seen. Especially given the moment and the stakes.
