    It’s like watching Arsenal vs Arsenal.

    Quality cross from de Bruyne.

    Keep up the pace, bring in some anger.

    Rack up the injuries and cards please.

    Aguerooooooooooooooo?

    I'm a bit torn actually. I'd quite like to see the quad done - who doesn't want records set in their lifetime - but they're owned by awful people.

    Brilliant VAR moment. Absolute silence in the stadium.

    4-3 (4-4)... Spurs back in front!!

    Crucially, however, Son is now out of the semi-final - should they make it, that is...

    20 minutes, that's another 6 goals?

    Hahahahah that's an offside goal for Man City

    150 db to 0 in 1 second.

    Great entertainment value.

    Edit.

    Memorable, totally unexpected, and ridiculous.

    Their league game on Saturday is going to be tasty! :lol:

    -

    Unfortunately, with Kane injured and Son suspended, I cannot see Spurs beating Ajax, esp. if Ajax play anything like they did last night.

    Liverpool have thrashed Porto and their games against Barca will be amazing... I reckon Liverpool could just edge that...

    This is probably the best outcome for Ajax. A weakened Spurs.

    But then again. They already took out the biggest clubs out there, Man City could have been another one on the slain giants list.

    Wonder if Spurs will rest some players for the City game now...

    Well, at least they broke one record tonight. Most humorous disallowed goal.

    And still the truest treble remains United's.

    Our commentators had a good point.

    One of the finalists will be Ajax or Tottenham. Who would have thought about that at the start of the tournament? And for Ajax it started on the 25th of July, with 6 games extra. :lol:

    Hell, not even after the start of the tournament. A gentle reminder...

    Football. Bloody hell.

    Ctrl + V what I've written elsewhere:

    That game... of any game I have watched on telly... that was simply breathtaking. Phenomenal football.

    Hot take: VAR didn't detract from the ending. I loved it. But I am six borovičkas deep.

    I would love to see the quadruple done, but not by City... Or Liverpool. :p

    I agree, at least if Barcelona play like they did against United. They aren’t near as good as they were when they had Xavi and Iniesta pulling the strings. Still good, but definitely beatable

    Extraordinary game, will be up there with the all-time great knockout matches.

    Worth remembering that Spurs spent nothing in the last two transfer windows, and yet are in the Champions League semi finals!

    Perhaps it is wise for the UEFA to move the Europa league to Tuesday, and have the Champions League on Wednesday and Thursday. Having terrible games as a warm-up is better than having them after 2 nights of great games.

    I'm watching Napoli v Arsenal, and it is just ass. Absolute ass.

    The one and only time Sheffield Wednesday will get a mention in relation with the Champions League.

    I just put £6 on Ajax to win the Champions League, and stand to win £30 if it pays out.

    I better not tell my Liverpool-mad pal who has £30 on Liverpool to win.

    I think Ajax will beat Spurs tonight, or at the very least get a score draw which will make life very hard for Spurs in the return leg.
