I think it should be shared around d, even to those places that are a long way away. So no problem holding it in Baku.

But their shouldn't be any issues with any competing player, if a host can't guarantee that they shouldn't get the final.

And the number of tickets actual supporters get us a disgrace. It just shows how unimportant supporters are in the minds of UEFA.

Yeah no way I would trust the government to not do anything.
If the goverment is pardoning a citizen that has murdered someone with an axe in there sleep, given back pay for the eight years he did in jail, gets promoted, gets given a swanky apartment and the human rights commisoner states that he is an example for youth, yeah i probably wouldn't be going either.

They'd be kidnapping him from the hotel and throw him jail or murder him.

Higuain worries the **** out of me as would Auba & Laca them. From being slapped like a bitch for a few years by Chels we've got a bit back on them lately. Stopping their double was particularly nice.
Probably go to pens, with them edging it. ( I did get 8.00 on my boys winning it )

What a farce. I believe it’s an 11pm (local time) kick off.

Agreed with Klopp’s comments on the choice of venue.
Yeah, it’s ridiculous. I just found out when going to put a bet on the match a few minutes ago, Wednesday 29th at 9:00PM. I was expecting to see Thursday morning at 5:00AM. But I guess the match is in Azerbaijan, so...

Yes it’s a 5am AEST kick off time, what I meant is the local time will be 11pm. Which I believe is 8pm for the UK.

If it goes into extra time/penalties etc, you’d be looking at around 2am by be time it finishes.

I took a look at that and that’s where I got confused. But yeah, livescore.com shows the time of the EL final as 5AM.

I think we (arsenal) will win. Hopefully hazard is not super motivated, also in auba we have a better striker than them. The downside is they are already in champions league, so that might give them more belief.

The friendly in USA was against the wishes of Sarri..
Now they have lost a key player for the Europa and he also misses UEFA nations .
And yet Sarri ignored the extra youf taken and picked a very strong side. He cant have too many complaints.

Game was for a great cause and injuries happen.

Achillies injuries suck big time too. Those two are very explosive and no guarantees they ever come back the same. Had to be our two most promising players too. Why couldn’t Jorginho or Alonso ping one instead
