    Roma knocking Barcelona out of the Champion's League quarters is the most beautiful thing. And Liverpool's 5-1 (!) against City over two legs has given me life.

    Semi-final draw is tomorrow lunchtime - I'd like it if we got Liverpool vs Roma and Bayern vs Real, because a final with the latter two would be QUITE BORING I'd imagine.

    Written while enjoying the sonic vibrations of a sultry gem. I thought it was time to resurrect the one semi-heterosexual thread on Moopy.

    I'm certainly dying at the flawless shade of Harry Kane stealing goals so he can win the Golden Boot, slay mama!

    There's no way Bayern will be drawn against Real in the semis. We all know It's a big ol' fix.

    Real vs Roma and Liverpool vs Bayern i reckon.

    Liverpool should take Roma down easily.

    But we'll see.

    Thank god, Walsall seem to have found some form. Should be set for another year in League One purgatory.

    Such liverpool.

    I put £10 on liverpool to win by at least three goals. The last few minutes were nail biting to say the least.

    Well, it may have been a shitty season for Arsenal but I think a 5-0 decimation of Burnley for Wenger's last home game is the best way it could have ended. I did shed a tear during the ceremony afterward.

    And the CLASS of the man to start by wishing Fergie well (Sir Alex, not the London Bridge chanteuse). A legend, an icon, a great.

    Yeah, I normally find Arsenal's specialism in failure pretty amusing but it is genuinely quite sad that his final season has been such a bust, the Atlético game was painful. He's undoubtedly one of British football's greatest ever coaches, he probably should have just retired a few years earlier.

    Nothing warms my heart more than Allardyce and Moyes being sacked on the same day, may they never get Premier League jobs again.

    (or at least not until "struggling Leicester" appoints one of them in December)

    Sergio Ramos = biggest cheat in world football. And that is with Marcelo in the same defence.

    Liverpool should probably buy a goalkeeper this summer.

    Karius has done well since he came in mid season but that was a fucking shocker.

    Footy bants is back in 2018-19 for all of the red-blooded alpha males on here.

    I watched my first Man United game of the season yesterday hoping for Mourinho to be immediately fired and dragged out of the stadium, screaming and crying. I was sorely disappointed.

    It was a really entertaining game, but Newcastle are shit and with the run of fixtures Man U have over the next month or so, I don't think he's out of the woods.

    I don't expect United to go an average run moving forward mind, they'll even find form fast, or crash and burn in the next few weeks.

    Seeing Arsenal 2 points off the top (if they beat Leicester tonight, which...) and 7 points ahead of United is quite delightful :disco: they're looking really good at the minute

    It feels like they've gone under the radar slightly so far but yeah, Emery seems to be doing a decent job. Torreira makes the midfield look much more stable.

    It's been a long time an Arsenal performance as great as our 4-2 BEAT DOWN of the awful Spurs at the weekend :disco: a year ago going down 1-2 at half-time we'd have completely collapsed. They look so impressive under Emery. Big test against United tonight though - that sad sack Jose always finds a way against Arsenal.

    Got to be rooting for Arsenal though. Fuck Jose, fuck Man Utd.

    Mourinho's meltdowns are mostly why Man U's decline is so good to watch, I hope he stays until the end of the season.

    I'm really surprised that Ralph Rabbithutch went to Southampton, he's far too good for that team. They were absolutely heading down under Mark Hughes (please say his Premier League career is done now) so the relegation battle will hopefully open up a little more now.

    Everyone likes to see Mourinho suffer. It's the main entertainment factor for this year's Premier League.

    It's actually quite an interesting character study because he used to be so charismatic and now he really has the constant look of someone who's been DEFEATED by life. You almost pity him. But at the same time it's all his own doing.

    Where the fuck will he go once he's sacked after Christmas?!
