Relief is the biggest emotion, really proud of the players for they way they fought for the shirt.

I don’t think there was any great insight on my part tbh - many would have said the same!  

I like it and hope it makes everyone believe that nothing is impossible whatever the odds.

Been a strange few hours - getting weirdly all worked up about FA Cup final tickets for Man City and then this!

Carlsberg don't do Soldiers, but if they did, they would probably be Brits.

It's very emotional football. I would have been very upset if the result had been different last night. 

I am glad you enjoyed it.

Last year against Roma in the QF - won 4-1 at home, lost 3-0 in Rome and went out on away goals.

Barca did it to PSG as well

Wow just wow. Amazing result and the best Liverpool performance I’ve ever seen. Made up for Trent AA he’s been found out a few times in Europe this year but was absolutely magnificent tonight in attack and defense. As they all were to be fair. Just texted the brother in law who’s a season ticket holder to ask him if that was the best night ever at Anfield. 3-0 down against Barca no Salah or Firminio he gave his ticket to his lad. Doh.

Haha, funnily enough it seems much less important!

Vanishingly so, I suspect.

Liverpool v Barcelona - Football being as boringly predictable as usual, eh?

Flippin' 'eck!

Well that’s one way of looking at it . His job is to score goals , but it  includes lots of cheating and unsavoury behaviour then on top of being good at football,  and has through his career. ‘ it’s all part of the game ‘ is why cheating has become so ingrained and accepted . He’s a good player but a very tarnished player through his own acts 

 

He didn’t quite do all of his job tonight, did he?

Oh dear, never mind, what a pity.

You want madness? I’ll give you madness ...

A few pages back I mentioned that Hastings went out in their play off semi final. I also said that some teams wouldn’t even know whether they could go up but had play offs anyway.

Turns out, now that the play offs at this level have finished that three out of the four teams in Hastings division could not go up. Thankfully for everyone’s sanity, the one that could did win the play off. But that was only confirmed after the play off final.

Whoever's running the England women's social media needs a pay rise. Today, the Lionesses' squad announcements have been made one at a time by one big name after another. Starting with Prince William announcing Steph Houghton as Captain.

And then when all 23 were named, we got this:

God, I love a sports montage.

I'm looking forward to watching England Women at the World Cup. I watched quite a lot in 2015 and was gutted when we lost to Japan in the semi-final. I think they play really good football. Hopefully we can go one step further this time.

Wow I’m not sure if that’s not even more dramatic than Liverpool yesterday. 

I can't recall two semi-finals in any sport, at any level, reaching such levels of drama and disbelief. It really has been (in the words of David Coleman) 'quite remarkable'.

Wow... what a game. Two awesome semi finals. 

It's been an amazing 3 days of football.

I was pleased for Spurs as I like teams that haven't made the final before. However it was sad to see the disappointment for the Ajax players and crowd at the end. 

Fortunately I managed to watch on a stream tonight.

Still Sunday to cone this week also.
