Any fans?

Took Liverpool 85 minutes to score despite the 1 man advantage. Chelsea plays to a draw in Greece.

I won't say what happened in the Roma/Madrid game, its on (tape delay) ESPN classic right now.

As much as I did not like those away goals....I am pretty sure we'll be ready to go to Rome. One more hill to climb to see Kiev.

( keep in mind i turned off after Firmino header in like 73rd min making it 5-0 )

didnt like to see sad Italians.

Roma scored 2 garbage goals.
They almost scored three. They actually had about 10 minutes of quality there at "garbage time" - but the goals themselves were good.

But in a two-leg tie, there's really no such thing as garbage time in the first game. It's basically a continuum (sans the away goal tiebreaker). But those two goals made it a three goal deficit.

The same deficit they came back from to knockout Barca. Obviously, Liverpool looked like they were taking batting practice for much of that game. But next week is a different game in Rome and who knows, maybe those two goals end up making it really interesting.

Loosing Chamberlin is going to hurt liverpool, especially since they have no more midfielders on the bench. Plus chamberlin is the only midfielder who is a scoring threat on top of being aggressive in defense.

Well, Roma ended up losing by just one. Still nice work by that side.

Liverpool and Real Madrid on May 26 in Kiev.

Champions League final kicks off at 2:45 EDT tomorrow, coverage on main Fox.

Apparently the Liverpool supporters had several charter flights into Kiev that were cancelled - due to the inability to get landing slots at Kiev airport. There were two flights scheduled out of Liverpool and one out of Manchester, chartered through Ethiopian Airlines.

Man, those fans have to be so bummed. I wonder if it will be noticeable that there's lacking Liverpool support tomorrow, I suspect it will be noticeable.

This is how the Champions League Final flights went wrong

I’m watching at a very busy bar/restaurant and the game is on - but the one TV I can see is on the non-HD channel, so it looks like crap. We have been asking them to change it, hopefully halftime they can do it.

3rd Champions League title in a row.. Wow.

Karrius really hurt Liverpool with the goal by Benzema and the second Bale goal.

Sucked to see Salah go off like he did. :(
