6-3 was something of a let off for man u there, Man city outstanding really. Can't think of another game where two players have scored a hat trick, if martial had scored again can anyone think of a game with three ?

Another close one was the legendary 1060 European Cup final when DiStefano and Puskas had hat tricks for Madrid with Erwin Stein getting a brace for Frankfurt.

Klopp is going to stick up for his player; I’ve no issue with that. How he’s doing it. Makes him look a belter. 
 

People criticising TAA’s performance on the pitch. I’ve no issue with that. 
people ABUSING TAA or any other player because of how they performed. I don’t agree with.

We're in the age of the anonymous keyboard warrior where the little short cocks wouldn't dare say a fraction of the vitriol they spout online in front of the person they target.

 

I know it's easy to say 'ignore them' but that's the best thing to do. 

 

That said. It's about time twitter and Facebook were brought to account for the content contained on their platform.

These points are very salient.

Watched some of the highlights from the Chelsea game and found myself wondering why everyone's creaming themselves over Alexander-Arnold, Reece James is a far better all round player

It’s TAA’s previous quality with the ball, that’s all. Defending has never been his strongpoint.

Aye, wonderful. Outclassed again by a far superior, big spending outfit.

At least Hearts have earned some money from the 'adventure'. That's the main positive out of all of this now.

Not a lot surely, can't be much coin in this competition is there.

Anyone watching the Man Utd game? The Omonia (Cyprus) defender heading the crossbar 😳. Never seen that before

I didn't watch it, but noticed a few posts on social media laughing about something re Ronaldo... I'm guessing it's because he didn't get his 700th goal or whatever it is?

Qualification for the group stages is €2.94m alone.

A win in the group matches = €500K

A draw in the group matches = €166K

Add in TV monies for each of the 6 matches, plus the Europa League play-off ties against Zurich.

When Hearts beat RFS in Latvia in match 2, that was €500K gratefully received. It would be nice to gain at least one more win from the remaining 3 fixtures but we'll see.

 

The prize money isn't overly much lower than the Europa League. For example:

Qualification for the group stages = €3.63m

A win in the group matches = €630K

A draw in the group matches = €210K

(Add TV monies again)

 

Obviously, the big dosh comes in the Champions League. Unfortunately, there's absolutely no chance of qualifying for that competition any time soon!

He missed some right sitters. 🤣

we only watched the game as I was with my son, who had been posted to Cyprus a few years back and would go to all the Omonia home games

Hutch booked and subbed tonight for Reading.

Just out ITV on and noticed the England women’s team are beating the USA.

There’s just been a penalty given to the Americans. Handball. It went to VAR and wasn’t given. 
No issue with that, it wasn’t handball. But my god it was so obviously not handball in the first place, it hit Beth Mead on the arse and she’d turned her body away, with her arms nowhere near the ball ! Ridiculously bad decision from the referee

I've just caught up with the Blackburn debacle at Cardiff

Another shocking decision in that game was by VAR. USA scored a really good breakaway goal which was then overturned by VAR / the ref. for offside.  We were then shown what the ref had been. You couldn't tell that she was offside: they were miles away, at a big, awful angle to judge, and there was just as much chance she was onside as off.  How can that possibly be "a clear and obvious mistake"?

The studio 'panel' were all very pro England but one recently retired player gave it the, "If that had been England they'd have been more than dissappointed", and Ian Wright went mental about it.  Not what VAT is for. Ridiculous. Ruled out a superb goal for nothing.

I can't stand that bloke but he was absolutely right, IMO, last night.

Just been looking for the stats to back my assertion up, and it appears that he’s improved in recent years. A few years ago it was awful, he had a spell where he missed five in eight.

It seems Man City’s penalty record is pretty poor overall, so perhaps Mahrez is their best bet after all.

Hotshot Hamish Haaland would be surely.
