I'll be camping slash don't give a #$!&@. Both of those teams are wretched and I hate them and their fans.

Yea it's #$!&@ great having the same teams in the final year after year while their #$!&@ bandwagon fans complain about new money teams. When they aren't talking about being entitled to the world's best players that is.

Want to but ticket prices are nutso. Seems the stars will likely play some part in that one as it's a week from the Classico in Miami. The DC game vs Man U will likely be the B team.

that stadium is such a #$!&@ show to take public transit to. guess I could rent a car. last time I went it was Copa Colombia Peru which ended in a Colombia victory via shoot out. we snuck some classy tequilla in via some camping canteen & ate edibles otw there.

watching Dele it's easy to forget how young he is. His skill and footballing instincts are just insane.

Liverpool have only played 6 Champions League games this decade. Even knowing there've been some real rough years in there, it feels like we've been top 4 more often than that, but nope. City getting all that money has been problematic. Then Spurs becoming more of a force as well.

Just thinking this is my 11th season following the club, and we were in the CL the first four years as finalists, quarters, semis, bounced at the group stage. I wish I cared more then. I didn't even considering taking off for the Athens final and had to run a work errand during the 2nd half so missed our goal. For you new folks, this was in the days of old when the CL Final was on a Wednesday.

FSG need to be bold this summer and realize the club is at a real crossroads. We have one of the best managers in the world and a talented first 11 that managed to go unbeaten against the other best clubs in the league. One difference maker type player along the lines of Mane (would be great if it was a number 9 tho not sure that's realistic) and then quality depth at a number of positions in the squad and we can hopefully challenge on all fronts next year. But that's going to cost a #$!&@ of money. The league is raking in money, and the club can be profitable doing this yo yo thing between 4th and 6th without much of a net spend, but we're never going to win anything. I tend to give the benefit of the doubt, and very much appreciate FSG from rescuing the club from H&G, but this is a big moment and they need to rise to it.

Spurs are the first team in almost 20 years to have the best attacking and defensive record without winning the league.

Oh it gets better Soren. We're the only team (til Barca equalled it a few hours later) to not win the title with a +60 GD.

i started watching more this season for whatever reason. i've been thinking about picking a team, but it feels weird choosing a favorite team as an adult, so maybe i'll just wind up staying on my current path. it seems like everyone likes tottenham, so that'd be lame. liverpool seems interesting. only two fans as far as i can tell and they sing a cool song. my gf's best friend's fiance follows southhampton because he was at the game where they wound up getting promoted. might be cool to follow one of the lower teams and root for them to be good one year. i'd guess teams like swansea, stoke, cp and watford fall in there. even west ham and west brom. leicester will prob never win again right, could torture myself.

what's the best phillies/philly sports comp?
