Europa League 2017/18

He's 77, give him a break.
mm, I chuckled a bit about epic's post because this "Pelé" acted in this situation really like he's 77. In German we have a saying about goalkeepers who are a bit slow, "er fällt wie eine Bahnschranke".


He's 14, give him a break.
15

Finished 1-0 to Leipzig. Werner with chances on the counter but he ballsed it and proved my point that he's not all that.
Yeah, of course it proves your point. It even would prove your point when he converted all his chances, eh? ;)

The Marseille vs Leipzig match with a dream start for RB. 0-1 after 2 minutes. But then:
Marseille is in rage mode. 1-1, 2-1 you can't even breathe and then 3-1 from Payet after 17 min was annulled because Mitroglu fouled Ilsanker just before. This won't end well for Leipzig

btw: Interesting kick off from Marseille. Rugby style like they kicked the ball over the sideline deep in Leipzig's half

Another night of comebacks.

Marseille and Salzburg in front with Arsenal and A.Madrid just about holding on.


Who said European football was dull..

Welbeck to the recuse - that's him in the England squad now he's scored a few.
 
Marseille beat Leipzig the weak 5-2. Give over Dirk mate. Buli is shite, Ligue 1 is boss.
:lol:, I can take this banter.
As I wrote before you could see today that Leipzig is still too "wet behind the ears"...wait another year or two and they are more experienced and now they clearly show signs of fatigue (they played on monday in the Bundesliga and were beaten at home 1-4 and Hasenhüttl should have replaced Ilsanker immediately after he made one mistake after the other in the beginning.

Marseille deserved to go through.

btw: When was the last European title for the "Boss Ligue"? Can't remember it

edit: googled it: 1996 PSG in the defunct European Cup Winners Cup and 1993 Marseille in the CL. And these 2 titles are the only ones you've ever won in Europe in over 60 years. Maybe you'll add another one this year in the EL ;)

That Salzburg result is mad. Especially after going a goal down at the start of the second half.
Reckon it's between Marseille and Madrid. Mitroglou looks totally out of place in that side, but he's doing an alright job.

Well you know it would be typical Arsenal to beat Madrid but then lose in the final.

Marseille fans would love to win a trophy in Lyon - not exactly best mates are they?

Not much of a historical rivalry but PSG/OM has become such a boring and bland rivalry since the Qatari takeover that the Olympiques are the two sides that hate each other the most in France at this moment in time.

I would love to go to a big match at the Stade Velodrome. It sounded utterly mental there last night!
It's very much like Liverpool. Meh for your average game but give them a special night in Europe and the place rocks!
