Props to Croatia though, played like warriors and earned that spot. France's counterattack was just way too much for Croatia but for large parts, Croatia controlled the game really well. Still France has been the most consistent team and props to them for winning it. Shame they won't feature in next WC much cause they will continue the curse and get knocked out in group stages :p

To call Liverpool dismal would be an understatement. Hats off to Ancelotti and Napoli for frustrating us and pulling of that result. Throughly deserved. The front three really need some time on the bench, they haven't been firing on all cylinders for quite a while. I hope the game against Man City isn't this bad and we can turn up.

So Rangers is now top of the SPL table, which is quite an achievement by Gerrard. I know Celtic has a game in hand but that's quite remarkable and he's had some incredible progress. I do hope though that Rangers reach the RO32 in the Europa League as well. They are playing really good. Also in another news, Modric won the ballon d'or.

Wow, that final took quite a turn, Kepa was so disrespectful towards Sarri. But given Chelsea's recent woes, they'd rather sack Sarri then let Kepa be punished. Weird shit is going down, [MENTION=5946]hotgamerft[/MENTION], thoughts?

That one incident overshadowed the team's good performance given how poor chelsea have been lately. Even though both sarri and kepa said it was a misunderstanding but i think they said because the club wanted them to and to avoid negative attention.

As for what should be done now. I think the club should heavily fine kepa and tell him to clear the air with the manager regardless of whether the club want to sack sarri or not. Putting kepa on the bench or forcing him to play with the reserves might give a strong statement from the club but that would not help the team since we have an important match coming up against spurs and i wouldn't trust caballero between the sticks. Kepa should have just come of, it just made a bad situation even worse.

I still think sarri needs time.

[MENTION=22273]XxRebellionxX[/MENTION] He has been fined and has also apologized
Goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga has been fined a week's wages and apologised for refusing to be substituted during Chelsea's Carabao Cup final defeat by Manchester City on Sunday.

Should have seen the soccer subreddit after it, people were literally went apeshit lol. But its good to see Chelsea bounce back after such a setback
Yeah a lot of chelsea fans were angry, he got punished though had to pay the fine and was benched vs spurs. The media blew it out of proportion but i am glad it got sorted.

He had a great game against fulham today.

First time since 08/09 that all four English clubs are in the QF in the UCL. Good to see that. Liverpool with all their woes away in the UCL smashed Bayern, we were in complete control and Bayern didn't even threaten that much. Testament to how much Klopp has improved Liverpool.

So many comebacks this season, i slept last night after watching the first half thinking ajax will go through. Woke up at sehri and saw that spurs had won. Crazy season

I'd rather have liverpool win it than spurs, though i really hoped for Ajax to win it somehow.

    Not to mention, monirors capable of 4k/120Hz over hdmi require an hdmi 2.1 port, which is relatively rare atm

    It's a native 60hz panel which is a dealbreaker at least choose one that in addition to 4k60 can go to 120hz on 2k so you can get high refresh rate gaming
    those naturally become a lot more expensive, just looking at it because of price point.
