Seen it time and time again but the pen Porto won should not be a pen, they shouldn't be given; Thought the ref was very poor all night.

Listening to 'Fletch' and 'Sav' was very painful. Thankfully the game made up for it.

Incredible game, incredible performance from 10 man Porto to win that. Just kept going for it the whole night. Pepe, at 38, was utterly immense for a team that conceded 3 times.
That wall though! FFS.

Ronaldo turned his back.

Went to bed when Juve "drew" in the second period of extra time, Porto were out on their feet.

I thought away goals didn't count in extra time but there you go.

What about the one not given in extra time when Cuadrado handled it?

Looking at the Juventus line up, that's a poor team. Fair play to Porto, will probably get City, Bayern or PSG in the next round as their reward lol.

Pirlo bound to be under pressure now especially given their league position??

That was the best game of soccer I have watched in quite a while. The pace and skill and commitment was outstanding and it makes the PL look like a second rate competition.

Is the premier league not widely accepted as being behind the champions league in terms of quality? It stands to reason that the competition with all the best teams in Europe will be of higher quality than the competition with all the best teams in England.

The first half of the the game last night was crap lads, admittedly when Chiesa scored a game took place thereafter.

Knockout stage of the CL is the best football about IMO. The groups I could take or leave.

Eventful night for Messi so far, from a wonder strike to a missed penalty.

Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea will all likely knock Porto out if drawn against them in the Quarter finals.

Iím sure Juventus thought all they had to do was turn up when paired with Porto.

Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

Under a rookie in Pirlo that's likely. Klopp, Guardiola, Tuchel will have their sides well tuned in.

PL is s..t to watch this year, ok Iím a LFC fan but the amount of teams Iíve watched this year dug in there own half and crowding out attacks is terrible viewing.
Itís pragmatism gone mad and thank God for some CL football where most teams like to attack.

Even thinking back last year when we won the PL it is nothing like the nights you watch the CL games like the beating of Barcelona 4 nil that night or of course Istanbul. Maybe itís because the stands are empty but this years PL has been hard to watch who ever is playing.

I think his point is that the EPL is dogshit at the minute
