I honestly believe if we were in the final 8 of this tournament, we had a strong chance of retaining the trophy so i feel like it's a missed opportunity as winning the cl needs a lot of years and a lot of stars to align. Extra disappointing as we were beating At. Madrid..if only we had Alisson in goal that night.
Back to Back World Champions baby!

Yep, we would have had an excellent chance in the one off games, was just a bad night against AM, we played well but got picked off when understandably pushing forward for a goal, Alisson in goal and we probably go through as you say.

Frustrating as the game should not have gone ahead with the problems in Spain with the pandemic, letting 5,000 Spanish fly over at the point was crazy, if it would have been called off we would have played now, and I would fancy our chances with Alisson back.

Oh well, we had a good season anyways smile and I would have taken PL over CL at the start of the season.

It all boils down to not having an acceptable replacement to cover for injuries and absences.

We've been very fortunate these last few years that we've not had a significant player/s suffer injury to put them out for a considerable length of time, like our rivals have. Seems that we are continuing on pursuing that line of thinking...crossing our fingers...putting our lucky underpants on...having a lucky horseshoe or rabbit's foot!

I see City are not hanging around in strengthening...Ake and Torres soon to be amongst their ranks and I'm sure more to follow.

Ake won't pull up trees at City. If Torres was really any good City would have had to pay 3 times as much. I don't know why everyone is panicking over a team that only won the league cup this season.

I like Ake, but he's no Kompany, I would have liked us to sign him, but it was to replace Lovren as cover/rotation rather that as a starting CB, I've not seen much of Torres, but I used to fear Sane coming off the bench, he won so many games for them in the 2018/19 season, I can't see Torres being as good.
