Fuck yeah my home town team, first live Chelsea game for me since Chelsea Spurs in 2016! 

I live in England! Everyone here supporting Olympiakos too!

There is much need. Much need indeed. Liverpool fans have to be the most annoying, entitled bunch of twats to exist. A little dose of this reality would serve them well if they weren't so delusional.

That would be arguably Barca from 2009-2012. 

Based on what? Real Madrid have won three Champions Leagues in a row, together with 2 La Liga's and Copa del Rey cups. They would have won 5 in a row if not for Barcelona in 2015, do you know how mental that is? To win 4 CL's in 5 years is something else. No one came close to what Real Madrid did in the 2014-2018 era.

Barcelona have lost 2 CL's in that the 2009-2012 era. Also they were not supposed to win in 2009 after what Ovrebo did.

No tongue exist to allow me to explain the hatred I have for Eng media, biased and disgusting to the core.

My work filter blocks Daily Mail and ESPN....perhaps for the better.

In my opinion you can´t really just look at the trophys when judging a team. I am far from a Barca fan, but I have to say their team was unbelievable, I have never seen a more dominant side since then. They had Messi, Iniesta and Xavi in their prime not to mention the other great players. The way they played changed football completely overnight in 08/09 and that is something I respect even though it is not my preferred style of play. I don´t think your mentioned Real side would stand a chance against this Barca team.

Yes, they lost two CL´s in this time, but lets be honest in 9 out of 10 games they are 4-0 up against us at the Bridge in 2012 and were unlucky (wrongly disallowed goal) against in Inter 2010. Real actually also had their Ovrebo game against Bayern in 2017. Real were also only second best in long periods in the 2014 and 2016 finals. They had some very determined winners in their team though, who cruised them to victories in the late stages.

I'm praying 🙏 Dortmund make a comeback and send City out of the CL. I can't handle this media bias any longer.

Vazquez is out for the rest of the season. 

If we beat Porto and Madrid do progress... that is massive plus for us. He played a blinder against Liverpool.

Carvajal could be back by the time we meet them in semifinals.

How fluid are football matches? A Pan European study

 

The 64th CIES Football Observatory Monthly Report crunched InStat data to unveil the effective playing time and other indicators regarding the fluidity of matches in 37 European competitions. It notably shows that the fluidity of the game depends on geographical and cultural logics. The proportion of stoppage time due to fouls in comparison to the total length of matches, for example, varies between just over 10% in the Netherlands up to almost 20% in Greece.

The number of fouls and time lost due to them tends to be higher in Southern and Eastern European leagues than in the championships from the North and West of the continent. The Turkish Süper Lig stands out as the competition in which the time taken to restart play after a foul is the longest: about 35” of stoppage time as opposed to 30” for all leagues. It is also in Turkey that referees add the most extra time: almost 9 minutes on average compared to 6’14” for all competitions surveyed.

The average effective playing time is 61%. It goes from 67% in Israel down to 56% in the Spanish Segunda División. The study also reveals the absence of correlation between the effective playing time and the total length of matches. This shows that the level of fluidity in the game is not taken into account by referees when it comes to adding extra time. This could encourage players of teams in difficulty, or having gained an advantage, to disrupt the rhythm of the game, knowing that the stoppage time has not much influence on the number of minutes added.

What’s the deal with Marcelo? Does he not play much for Real Madrid anymore? Feels like I haven’t seen him in ages. Still only 32.
