Christian Ramirez scores 2 goals to secure a home playoff game for the Loons. Poetic.

Pretty good first half for Christian at Turf Moor. Scored both Chelsea goals so far. Blue is the colour!!!

He's had a good week. Came off the bench in the second half to set up the winning goal in CL and then a hat trick today.

They will likely be extremely boring... but effective. Park the bus in front of goal and counter attack has always been Mourinho's style.

On the field, it will be a massive step back from Poch's free flowing, pressing style.

I’m so glad he’s back!

From the press conference :

The consequences of the lost final of the Champions League?
"I do not know because I've never lost one [🤣], but I can imagine that it's not easy at all, but there is the example of Liverpool, who was always very strong and won it just after losing the final. "

"I have always been humble in my own way, the problem is that you have not perceived it!"

"You never lose your DNA, your identity, but I've had time to think about a lot of things, I realized that during my career I made mistakes, and I'm not going to make those mistakes. I will make new ones. "

There is no deal to work out. FFP is a joke that only the country club/cartel care about and now the hammer will be dropped on it. Let's go City!

Bad couple of days for the EPL in the Champions League. First Tottenham get run out with a pretty lame effort and then Liverpool get bounced after going ahead n Extra Time on aggregate.

I never thought I'd have the opportunity to celebrate St Totteringham's Day within 6-7 months of Jose Mourinho taking over as coach. Of course Arsenal can still Arsenal it (like in the Europa league) but seeing the meltdown at White Hart Lane puts a grin on my face.

Seeing some soccer highlights and even though the stadium is empty there are enough people to make some noise so it's nice. Much better than watching eSports...

There really might be something to the fact the Gophers are used to playing in front of mostly empty arenas...
