Bloody hell....they've got a chance of reaching the final.

What a great game.

Got a couple of quid on a Liverpool win after penos 😂👍


In his three stints as Grimsby Town manager spanning over 10 years the club was never relegated and he also guided them to three promotions.
Only 14 managers have reached 1,000 matches in charge of a Football League team by 1998 and Buckley is one of them.

Such quick thinking from Alexander-Arnold for the fourth goal. Game situation and quality of opponents, goal of the season for me..

You have to fancy Liverpool to win it now.

Come on Tottenham tomorrow.....both finals could well involve only English clubs.

Fantastic game with a superb winner. Had them to win the tie at 16-1 which softens the blow a bit!

Glad to hear that the Barca fans gave Liverpool a standing ovation.  Very well-deserved after haivng key players out.  And playing a key game last weekend.

On the other hand, talking of comebacks.  Town gave Liverpool a goal start at Anfield before waiting until the last min of ET to beat them.

Every now and then you see a game of football that really blows you away. Tonight was certainly one of those.

Liverpool did English football proud tonight.

Think you are a bit harsh there ...not sure of your age but I go back to when they dominated and the press then seemed to be bias towards  Man utd , .....so I just think the press will lord great teams but root for the underdog and the team who havent won anything for a long time ........they certainly talked up Leicester the press just loved them that season

Quite right too.

I'd celebrate excessively too if I was them



“To put it in gentleman’s terms if you’ve been out for a night and you’re looking for a young lady and you pull one, some weeks they’re good looking and some weeks they’re not the best. Our performance today would have been not the best looking bird but at least we got her in the taxi. She weren’t the best looking lady we ended up taking home but she was very pleasant and very nice, so thanks very much, let’s have a coffee”

Problem is you're also allowed to delete them willy nilly, and mine/anyone elses with them. Are you keeping this one?

What exactly do you need to be a mod? Fairness, objectiveness, ability to calm a situation...it's your moderator duties to do these things, not just leave your own bitter rantings about a team you obviously loathe everywhere.

From my point of view, it benefits English football as a whole. There might be some Swedish players who would look more favourably on coming here, because this is the place to be right now. There might be some little kid in Grimsby who right now has left his Play Station to go on a kick about with his mates that could lead to him eventually becoming a youth team player for us. Nights like last night inspire people. Footballers don't come from nowhere, they have to spend thousands of hours practising with their mates and kicking a ball against the wall. They have to overlook their education and put thoughts of careers on hold to devote to playing the sport. English football is at it's finest point now for ages, we should enjoy it, rather than find fault.

5 of the 14 players that graced the pitch (two were substitutes) for Liverpool are English. They are managed by a German and owned by Americans. At what point do they stop truly representing English football?

I'm happy for all Scouse Liverpool supporters. But I'll be leaving for work soon and I can't be arsed to put up with the inevitable smugness from all the plastic Liverpool fans. 'We' this and 'us' that. Uuuugh intercourse OFF! I think most people at work assume I'm not in to football because I refuse to converse with plastics about the Premier League (which constitutes most football fans). I think that probably makes me a male private but it helps keep me sane!

I’m not supporting Town anymore because we’ve got too many foreigns in the team with all the Swedes, Welsh U21s and Irish/San Marinese in the playing squad and Aussies coaching. They’re not English any more - we didn’t vote leave for this!

Amazing comeback, one of the best. The United fans in the office this morning have been visibly upset about the result last night, like it's ruined their week or something. You've got to weigh things up and start making some changes when you're getting furious about a result your team is not even involved in.

But that is changing.

More and more young players are getting chances at our elite clubs.  The England team is no longer just made up of players from Manchester United reserves and teams fighting it out at the bottom.

From the 4 English sides in the Champions League you can almost make up a World Cup Semi-Finalist national team.  

Spanish and German they may be, but Guardiola and Klopp are helping the English game by developing home-grown talent at those clubs.  In Alexander-Arnold and Gomez, Liverpool have two defenders who will go onto be mainstays of the national side for years to come.  Raheem Sterling's transformation under Guardiola is out of this world.  

We've never had so much talent available at one time.  Within a couple of years Gareth Southgate is quite literally going to be have an embarrassment of riches available to him for selection.  

Compare it to a few years back when there was a desire for Mikael Arteta to be given an England cap based on so many years residency.

Five is quite a lot compared to how thing have been, I remember an arsenal team with zero English players not so long back.

And yes Guardiola and Klopp helping our game with the introduction of new ideas and tactics and giving youth a chance.

The English game is looking up after it seeming we dead and buried with no quick solution. Now all of a sudden all these talented youths are emerging, much credit must go to St. George's Park and all the work that's gone improving the progression of our kid's.

Let me just say that I watched the brief highlights available online this morning and drunk myself laughing at the winner.

Great to see such quick thinking from Alexander-Arnold but that was comical defending of the sort you wouldn't expect to see even in Sunday morning football.

You mean because Liverpool stuffed Barcelona there is a ferry load of Swedes on route to BP via Immingham all desperate to play for Town in Div 4 of the EFL and live on East Marsh? (I just hope they are better than Ring)

Make it as many or as few as you like son, frankly I'd be amazed if Liverpool beating Barcelona actually led to any ('some') players (Swedish or otherwise) hot footing it to Grimsby Town

I think we would all love every premier team full  off English/ British players and may happen eventually, but by having all these foreign players and coaches I believe it has helped the England national team play football instead of the hoof ball we've played for so long, obviously well done to Gareth Southgate for having the guts/balls to implement the modern style.

Quoted from immariner
5 of the 14 players that graced the pitch (two were substitutes) for Liverpool are English. They are managed by a German and owned by Americans. At what point do they stop truly representing English football?

I'm happy for all Scouse Liverpool supporters. But I'll be leaving for work soon and I can't be arsed to put up with the inevitable smugness from all the plastic Liverpool fans. 'We' this and 'us' that. Uuuugh intercourse OFF! I think most people at work assume I'm not in to football because I refuse to converse with plastics about the Premier League (which constitutes most football fans). I think that probably makes me a male private but it helps keep me sane!  


The English game hasn’t been this strong in years and young English players are directly benefitting. There’s a chance Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea and Spurs could make up all 4 teams in the finals of European competition, all of whom have talented young English players playing for them. I’ve not seen it this strong in my lifetime.

Football can be the best thing in the world at times.
What a game 👍


In his three stints as Grimsby Town manager spanning over 10 years the club was never relegated and he also guided them to three promotions.
Only 14 managers have reached 1,000 matches in charge of a Football League team by 1998 and Buckley is one of them.

I wish they'd rename the competition. Whoever wins the Champions League will not be a Champion, as Liverpool, Spurs and Ajax all failed to win their own leagues last season.

That's absolutely spot on. The only teams that should qualify should be the champions of the member country's top league. But EUFA want to squeeze as much revenue as they can from this competition.

Same here....I can't lose in the final now because an English club is guaranteed to win it.....can't see it but I'd probably prefer Spurs to win it because they haven't won it.

if Arsenal win the europa league, could that mean we get 5 teams in the champs league next year....or would it mean Liverpool winning the Champs League with an Arsenal win would mean Tottenham are stuck in the Europa League?

If that makes any sense....

Found my answer:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/47806720

If Arsenal win a Europa League Final then England will have 5 teams in the Champions League (although there is a very slim chance of Arsenal finishing in the top 4, then we wouldn't......unless Tottenham won the Champs League whilst finishing outside the top 4....agggggghhhhh

Just incredible football, drama and excitement. Night after night.    Does it matter if non-champions are in the CL? If they are good enough to beat champions then they should progress.

English teams have traditionally shown fighting qualities (as have the fans).  We are good with our backs to the wall.  We are better at this now as English players now have the technical abilities as well to match foreign players.

Back to Spurs.  Who thought they would get near to a final after losing their first 3 group games?  Then drawing Man City in the quarter-finals.

It was reported that Ajax had not won a CL match at home since 1996.  Maybe that helped Spurs tonight.  Ajax have always been outstanding away in the CL.  They have been a credit to football.  I feel for them.

Well, what a magnificent two of days of football.

As a Town, and in general, football fan, I really enjoyed the raw emotion that the two semi's produced. They both literally reduced me to tears, I think mainly because it revoked the play-off final and the Anfield wins in me. Our Liverpool win released that much adrenaline in me that I couldn't sleep for three days, despite working full-time with two small rug rats at home. That's the power and spirit of football. New fans are born in such circumstances.

My boy is now 18 and experienced the play off final with me. Before that game he was glued to the x-box, whereas now, he bugs me to take him to EVERY Town game; he is addicted to Town, win, lose or draw.
LETS GET THAT F****ING NEW STADIUM BUILT and re-build our own strong fan base. It is there, it just needs enticing.

As already mentioned by others, English football is riding high on a crest of a wave right now, starting back in June with that amazing WC run, then we had the Nations League thing, we have a semi in that to look forward to, the Prem + Champ have both been as exciting as I can remember them and then this week has just been amazing!!

The sad thing is that 20 years ago I would have been buzzing at the thought of both finals being all English affairs.
But Premiershite has knocked most of that out of me.  No connection at all with the lower league clubs apart from hoovering up any kid with half an ounce of talent.  It's nice to see it happening and I'll probably watch both finals.
But that's about it really. If pushed I would have to say I would like to see Spuds and Gooners being victorious.

I jokingly remarked  'I don't know whether to spend it watching porn or watching football'

That's understanding darling what makes you say that? I asked

She said 'Well you already know how to play football'
