Manchester United 17/18


#521

If your aunt had balls.


#522

You are looking through a champions league prism , pre utter globalization of the sport and the utter dominance of money . Back then Souness’ rangers were near outspending English teams , Bayern were the champions of Germany and Marseilles were moneybags .


#523

You’re recalling from behind a vail of misty eyed romanticism, a time when everything was supposedly better…


#524

That AC team was actually unreal. Didi in goals, Cafu, Nesta, Stam, Maldini as a back four :heart_eyes: Costacurta as a sub as well.
Pirlo, Gattusso, Seedorf, Kaka in midfield with Shevchenko & Crespo upfront.

And then a Liverpool team with the likes of Djimi Troaré, Luis Garcia and Milan Barós (with Cissé coming on) took home the medals. It’s a funny old game.


#525

But everything was better then mate. Luis Figo killed football when he crossed the divide to join the royalists. That was the end of the beautiful game.


#526

Melchester Rovers never had it easy against those crack Eastern European sides, and they’d have to put up with cold showers and shitty airplanes as well


#527

Communism wasn’t all bad.


#528

What made it even more bizarre was to see Italians surrender so meekly.


#529

Italians never surrender. They just change sides.


#530

The greatest final of all time.


#531

#532

No I am not .


#533

A trip to Eastern Europe was fraught back then though. Liverpool won 4 European Cups between 1977-84. In that 1977-84 era Liverpool also exited to Dinamo Tblisi, CSKA Sofia and Widzez Lodz


#534

Sky doing some hyping of Man U v Liverpool on Saturday to see who can narrow the gap with Man City to something like 13 points


#535

The shittiest fixture of the season every year.


#536

A throwback to bygone days when both were big clubs. Its quite sweet actually.


#537

Big Rom dominating. Two for Marcus rashford.


#538

Always rated that kid


#539

He got his game today and scored two.


#540
