Only just catching up.
TBA, commiserations mate and sorry to hear you’re not doing well. Spurs showed massive character to get as far as they did. Everyone on here knows I’ve been a bit of a Poch critic but he’s done a great job of reaching that final and Spurs could have more nights like this one if they can hang onto him.
Beni, great post. It literally couldn’t be a worse season for Utd fans with City winning the domestic treble and Liverpool the CL but stories like that remind us all what football is about. It’s about those memories. I don’t see my parents much now with us living in different countries but I sat in the pub over here with my old man watching England knock Colombia out of the WC last year and that memory will be with me forever, so I can only imagine the joy you went through.3rd June 2019 at 6:01 pm #42144

Great story, Beni. Bit similar for me as I got to watch the game with my kids. Every other final over the years I’ve been at the game so never got to see any finals with them. On Saturday night we went out in to Liverpool and stayed for the parade on Sunday, and it was just wonderful to share the moment with them. My daughter was in tears at the final whistle and it was an evening we’ll just never forget.
Still haven’t got back down to earth and I’m just so proud of the team, the fans and above all, the manager. So glad we’ve come out of this season with some silverware. It would have been heartbreaking to miss out after the season we had. Crap game, but frankly don’t care. 6 times feels very special.4th June 2019 at 4:59 pm #42167

I’m still on cloud 9. Just delighted
Team for a longtime. Solid everywhere
Just need to add one or two more players. Fully fit Ox and Keita was just getting going.
Fabhino and Alison have been massive signings. Nothing to add on vvd. Just a special player
Out of big trophy wins unsung hero’s are born and they are Origi and Matip
Matip has been brilliant after starting the season as 4th choice centre half4th June 2019 at 8:55 pm #42168
Great stuff Hightown
Thanks for the comments/replies and acknowledgements guys – you’re a good bunch. Have a great summer – much love to all (even the united fans – the league needs a strong united)4th June 2019 at 8:56 pm #42169

Winning the CL definitely took the sting out of missing out on the PL.
I will say though that my match experience was really poor. Hours in the mooring rain, watching a very big screen but it had no colour red , which doesn’t sound like a big deal but it kinda was TBH.
I wish I just watched it at home. I wouldn’t have been constantly wiping rain water off my glasses, watching an almost black shirted Liverpool !! Ha. But the atmosphere was really good. There was no trouble.
