Just didn’t do enough. Real took their chance, Liverpool didn’t. They deserve it. Brilliant defensive performance.

Courtois, Casemiro, Carvahal outstanding.

Still a superb season. Hopefully FSG strengthen this summer.

I have no idea what the rules are any more. The richichet off Fabinho doesn’t count?

Leaving that stuff aside, they were still lucky. Absolute shambolic defending for it.

Neither Salah or Diaz are getting in the game. Mane doing all right. Might take Thiago slipping someone in or a set piece as nothing coming from out wide.

Saw one tweet said only two gates open!

Apparently fans without tickets chancing their arm are part of the problem causing the crowding.
It’s more that gates are closed and the stewarding is a mess going by people reporting from outside the stadium.
Anyway hopefully everyone gets in safely.

That’s what multiple journalists are saying. Simon Hughes, Phil McNulty said there was a massive bottleneck two hours before kick off

Will Thiago start?

What’s Kerry’s record winning margin?

19 points up with nearly 20 left.

The blame for these deaths and all those gun deaths in the US lies at the door of the GOP. If you vote or support them, then you're complicit. It's really that simple.

It lies at the door of all politicians
Why haven Democratic Senators not tried to reform gun laws? get it to the floor and see who will and wont support changes to the laws? I keep hearing its pointless because the GOP wont allow it to pass or the next change in majority will overturn this. They wont do it because they are protecting their own political ass. Why is Joe not trying to make change?

One of the most progressive gun reforms in the last number or years happened in Florida driven by Rick Scott, yep, he is a Republican. Yet in a state like Illinois where there are two Democratic Senators its legal to buy a gun at 18, and every week there are 10's of deaths in Chicago where again there is a Democratic Mayor.

The deaths of these kids and people for the last 30 odd years lays with both political parties.

Mitch McConnell can either filibuster a vote or refuse to put it on the floor, depending on whether he is minority or majority leader. The Dems need 60 votes to bypass a filibuster. They have 50. We’ll see whether they’ll get 10 Republicans if next weeks talks about to anything worthwhile. I seriously doubt it.

And Illinois can have all the gun restrictions they want, but it doesn’t mean shit when you drive a few miles up or down the road to Indiana or one of the other bordering states were gun laws, if any, are far more lenient.

Fair fucks to Beto O’Rourke.

About time a Democratic politician showed some balls and confronted these ghouls.

Let’s hope we see plenty more of this.

The likes of Abott are absolutely enabling these mass murderers. Hit them over the head with it. They’ve no answer.

I think all else being equal, Liverpool are a superior team.

However, Liverpool have looked very leggy over the past few weeks. Not surprising, obviously.

If it goes to extra time, I can seriously see Liverpool playing for penalties as they'll be out on their feet. It was a similar situation in the FA Cup Final.

On the other hand, they may be the sharper side earlier on, so hopefully a good, fast start to put them in the driver's seat.

A repeat of their 2019 start wouldn't go amiss. :)

Lots of questions to be answered by local authorities and whoever else was there , lucky a border patrol agent responded to the situation and took the piece of crap out . Ironic that most of the posters responding would like that agency to be disbanded .

The border police? What a stupid stupid part to put in at the end. Armed police who have no issues squeezing the life out of people for traffic offences stay out of the building because of fear of being shot.. in turn this manic who on his 18th birthday buys guns, goes to a school and kills kids. But you focus your post on people wanting to disband border police!

What a twaty thing to concentrate on
pointing out who actually went in and shot the guy and what agency he represents is twaty ?
You normally are only worried about the color of the attacker and if he surrendered or was shot .
An 18 year old buying 2 rifles is insane and that law should be changed but dreaming that law abiding people are giving up any guns is not realistic.
The police in the USA are demoralized and doing a terrible job in most parts of the country for a number of reasons and for the last few years seem to be more interested in staying out of any situation that may be dangerous of controversial and are trying to hang in there to get out with a 95% pension when the time comes . Ps they are not the ruc

Right now its not realistic, because the GOP and the NRA have made unfettered access to any kind of weapon a central plank in the culture wars and they are currently an extremely powerful political force.

But when it comes down to it, do the majority of gun enthusiasts really want everyone, everywhere to have unfettered access to military-grade weaponry?

Do they have a logical argument against why someone should not have:

1. to complete a proper background check, like you now have to do for many jobs or to even to get TSA pre-check/global entry membership?
2. to complete a proper gun safety course?
3. to have a gun permit?
4. access to the ownership of assault weapons without some very good reason?

Do the majority of police really want to be dealing with untrained, unrestricted members of the public who are in possession of weapons and protective gear that wouldn't look out of place on a battlefield?

GMAC-all the extreme lefties I follow on Twitter are using this as an opportunity to demonize Border Patrol. It’s disgusting

Yes, extremists, in general, are morons.

These politicians are living in cloud cuckoo land if they think arming teachers and putting an armed vet in every school is the answer. The shooters, like this guy this week, will just equip themselves so that they can shoot their way past. Its utter madness. Anything to avoid the bleeding obvious fact that the ludicrous availability and access to these weapons is the issue.

And then you get the other "argument" - "what's an assault weapon?" Or "there's no such thing as an assault rifle". Go away to f**k.

Never mind that I doubt if a single person here has EVER asserted that the border patrol should be disbanded.

But, then you look at which poster is making the claim…

The big worry from a Donegal perspective (and I've seen a few former players and managers saying this too) is hunger. I've no doubt we can match or even better them on a football basis, but I'm less certain we will be able to live with the intensity and fight Derry will bring. They're going to be super-confident after their performances so far and their almost pipping us last year. We've shown in previous years that when the chips are down, we cannot always be relied on to dig deep and keep performing and keep our composure when the physical intensity and effort is put in by our opponents. Mayo 2019, Cavan 2020 being the two primary examples. To their credit, they hung in there in the first half against Cavan this year, but I think Derry will bring a lot more to the table than Cavan did.

We'll know 15 minutes in whether Donegal are up for the fight.
