Hand ball is a hand ball. I love that it knocked psg and Neymar out. Did you see Neymar’s rant afterwards? Such a classless twat. That guy will never be world class because of his child attitude. United pulled it off today with a deep letter squad and PSG looked half the team they did in the first leg but I certainly won’t complain. Onto the 8 and Ole for president.

I happened to be in Paris last night on my way through to Germany. I had no idea CL was playing in town till too late to mobilize....but we did find a bar.

When that PK was scored it nearly caused a brawl between a handful of Man U supporters and the locals. It got a little tense!

As for the call....man oh man I don’t know. I have no allegiance to either squad, but I do think I’d be as upset and feeing cheated if I were a PSG fan. He wasn’t facing the shot, as he’d jumped and turned his head away. His arms did not shift so as to suggest consciously or incociousky trying to make contact. It’s a real tough one, and frankly, not sure I love video review being used here. Would almost prefer the officials on the pitch decide without the benefit of the review. They obviously did not call the spotter at first....

That being said, in real time when the deflection happened, I thought, “Oh fcuk, it’s going to get ugly!”

Ole is doing an unbelievable job and has proved he should get the full time job but even his former teammates think it shouldn't have been given...


Neymar is no doubt a world class talent imo. He is also a huge cnut. Lol

No way a PK. Even Rio and the panel wouldn’t give that. The ball is being skied!
So balls going nowhere turns in to a goal?
Its just not right. You don’t battle for months in this completion for a goal like that to happen. Come on.

We all rather see real goals win matches. Not BS like that.
Rio says it best. Where do we want the defenders arms if he is jumping?

Tough one for sure, shouldn’t be jumping with your back turned. I don’t like the call as Its a pretty natural arm position but love it at the same time being a United fan. A fair share of PK’s are on plays leading to nothing. A player going away from goal, a player seeing a defender lunging towards a ball and just putting a leg in the way and dropping even though there is no goal scoring threat. So for me where the ball may have ended up is a bit moot. I’m confused Lion you are a diving cheat that hates when things seem to turn out unfair. Can’t have it both ways lol.

I happened to be in Kathmandu on my way up to K2 and I for the life of me couldn't get any decent reception down at the market; turns out I was low on battery and I had left my charger in a tomb. I managed though to pick up some solar panels from Phurba Tashi up at Namche Bazaar the next morning: and although my fingers were freezing, with his help in hooking them up, I was back in business. As for the call, I have to say that was cruel, but on the replay with all the angles, slow mo etc, it was a peno. I think though they should leave this to the on-field officials; we are going in the wrong direction with all of this digital replay stuff, it is ruining the game.

Porto may seem like the easiest route to the semis, but having been knocked out of the FA Cup by Wolves and dropping points to the others over the past 6 weeks you never know....

Man U vs Barca is very nice though.

Watched City vs Spurs here in Amsterdam in what was a truly enjoyable game!

What was better, this game or the Milan vs Liverpool final??

I also thought VAR was spot on ;)
