    Moura, Sissoko, Vertonghen in Champions League squad of the season. Well deserved.

    Just to clarify, as there seems to be some confusion, the change in the law on handball was not implemented for the CL final. UEFA announced on 29 May that the law changes would not apply to UEFA competitions until 25 June (link).

    Secondly, it's worth saying that the main change regarding handball is concerning attackers ie. that goals or goal-scoring opportunities cannot, under the new laws, result from an accidental handball.

    This is where you know who the casual fans are. The serious fans usually stop short of taking cheap shots immediately after the game

    I said that before, but was instantly dismissed, even after posting the FIFA and UEFA regulations, that state that any new rules, or changes to rules, do not apply to competitions that are still ongoing.

    How was Sissoko's handball silly. Mane shot at him from point blank range while he was pointing to Trippier who to mark. It we just unlucky.

    It was silly because he had his arm outstretched in the box. He's a midfielder and not a defender and defenders will often fold their arms behind their backs while jockeying in the box.

    It was a terrible decision from the ref, and having given that, how does he not give the clearer use of arm/hand by TAA? He also failed to book Matip for taking Kane out and Robertson for elbowing Trippier in the face. Further, he made no attempt to stop Liverpool slowing the game way down whenever possible..

    Not sure how old you are mate, but I remember Terry Neil. Trust me. We are currently successful and heading for some very good silver-plated times.

    I think it was quick thinking by Mane, he saw Sissoko had his arm up pointing, in the box, Mane flicked it up at Sissoko (it wasn't going to a Liverpoo player I could see) and screamed for the pen imo.

    My wife watched some of the game with me. She is a therapist and took one look at The Egyptian Messi and said he looks like a cnut.

    He definitely did, in my opinion. If this sort of rule and action is allowed to take root it will change the essence of the game. People will seek to gain advantage not by attempting to break a defense, but to exploit a stupid rule.

    He was pointing to Trippier to cover for him. If anything his arm was coming down from that gesture. The ball hit his ribs and armpit anyway. Never a pen.

    I agree. But how often do defenders point in the box? Seldom. The keep their arms out of the line of fire. It was naive of Sissoko, quick thinking by Mane and a brick decision by the ref that didn’t even seem to go to VAR. And as we saw after that, Pool put 8 men behind the ball.

    Yeah, similar for me. All the ManU and Everton fans are in mourning with me whilst the Goons still embarrassed about Wednesday but one Chav I know giving it large :rolleyes:

    I reminded him that Hazard only signed for Chavski because they fluked the CL in 2012 and Eden’s now had enough of carrying the team so he is buggering off to Madrid to win the CL... I haven’t heard a peep from that taco since.

    Fingers crossed we don’t have to wait as long as the Goons for a 2nd bite of the cherry!

    Looking back, I see that Leeds were the sole English club to lose in their first appearance at a European Cup final but hopefully the fact that Chelsea also lost their debut in the only other all-English final (before going on to win it 4 years later) is a good omen for us...

    ManU: 1968 won, 1999 won, 2008 won, 2009 lost, 2011 lost
    Leeds: 1975 lost
    Liverpool: 1977 won, 78 won, 81 won, 84 won, 05 won, 07 lost, 18 lost, 19 won
    Forest: 1979 won, 1980 won
    Villa: 1982 won
    ARSEnal: 2006 lost
    Chavski: 2008 lost, 2012 won
    Spurs: 2019 lost

    I see that utter total sack of a so called human brick clam George Galloway is at it again.


    “Tottenham have condemned comments from former MP George Galloway, accusing him of "blatant antisemitism" over a tweet sent in the aftermath of the Champions League final.

    The club reacted to a post from Galloway which congratulated Liverpool on their win but also expressed relief that there were "no Israel flags on the cup".

    The tweet from Galloway said: "Congratulations to the great people of Liverpool to the memory of the socialist miner BillShankley to the fallen 96 to those who fought for justice for them and to the Liverpool dockers. No Israel flags on the Cup!"

    Tottenham gave the following statement to Sky Sports News on Sunday: "It's astounding in this day and age to read such blatant antisemitism published on a social platform by someone who is still afforded air time on a radio station on which he has previously broken broadcast impartiality rules."
