The English do, just not in the Premier League at home games.

I'm thinking maybe Real and Athletico.
That was last year. Maybe there was one of the Milan clubs at some stage. Unique anyway

As a neutral ,I think this is going to be a mouth watering grand final, Bravo to both teams for proving football is the most exiting sport in the world.

Unfortunately, it's highly unlikely (for the neutrals) to live up to either of the semis. I'd be happy with a super boring 1-0 win, OG from VVD in the 8th minute of injury time. :wink:

Congrats on a great performance, especially with Firmino and Salah missing. If Messi doesn't really perform I think Barca are way past their best, but Liverpool were comfortably the better side over the two legs. Hoping for an EPL final. Well, praying actually, not that I believe in God. Except on a bottle of shiraz golf course where he/she's a prize champagne most of the time.
Looking forward to a free game and massive breakfast :mrgreen:

EPL toughest and best league in the world but the reasons for the current English club strength is for very different reasons than the pre-Heysel dominance.

In a way, I'm glad Spurs won the way they did. At least this way, given the comeback and emotion following Liverpool's win, both have effectively played their emotional "grand final" so will be equal footing, psychologically anyway. :wink:

Hopefully the final will be as good as the semi's but I have a feeling it will not be as good - hope I'm wrong though.

First time ever that 4 finalists from the same country.

Is it the first time that a final is 2 teams from the same city?

Answer one of those questions, Madrid has done it twice.

Lack of regular competition against quality teams is the biggest problem in Scottish Football, always has been really, except for a couple of periods in the 1960's & 70's.
