    It'd also be hilarious if we spent all that money on a player from Conte's squad.

    They showed our games in that live too. I distinctly remember watching that terrible performance in the Final from my sofa (Torres was beyond shockingly bad that day). I’ve never had Sky, so the games must have been on terrestrial TV

    Also thought he was a bit unlucky with their first as looked pretty well-positioned to stop it and the forward hit the ball onto his other leg and it went in the opposite direction.

    Sounds like Barkley has had a relapse of the niggling brain injury that has been troubling him for years now...

    Don't forget during Jan 2018 when Conte's 3-6-1 tactics meant we didn't score for nearly four games and ended up going to penalties with 9 men against Norwich in the FA Cup replay. And then we lost the semi-final to the worst Arsenal team in Wenger's tenure. Good grief. That season really was punishment for all of us.

    There were probably a few that were surprised by how Conte treated certain individuals and didn't like it. And by how unpleasant the relationship between Conte and the club got. I've heard stories from good sources about how he treated certain players when they were going through difficult personal issues and it really didn't sit well with the individuals involved or their teammates.

    They also may well have to sell one of their prized assets to raise the cash to spend all of that money. Especially if they don't make the top four. I wouldn't be surprised to hear quite a few rumours around Kane's future as the summer approaches. They'll need some cash from somewhere.

    I'd go something like this: Kepa Azpi Zouma Tomori Emerson Jorginho Kante Kovacic Willian Tammy Pulisic I'd be aiming to put Kante or Kovacic tight on De Bruyne and work on breaking their play down and countering quickly. Kante, Jorgi & Kova being nice and compact to stop them playing through us when we don't have the ball would be good. I'd have them hunting as pack rather than spread out across the pitch all of the time. Their back four look vulnerable at the moment, so quick transitions that put pressure on Fernandinho being out of position and not being able to make those tactical fouls at CB could be really useful. Tammy's height could be useful if we can play direct and Emerson could be very dangerous overlapping & getting in behind Walker down our left. I think quick counters and playing the ball into their area very directly from crosses and pull-backs could be really useful for us.

    Interesting choice of job if he really is a communist.....

    Ok, I was trying to work it out as I couldn’t see anything much on the couple of replays I saw. Sounds more bad luck that it ended up disallowed than any deliberate infringement really then. I guess having been hot on the handball for the 2nd penalty, the Ref couldn’t allow a goal where there was any contact with a hand or arm? Shame as Dave’s finish was really good At least in the CL we’re getting the monitors used and a more sensible approach to VAR. The PL need to take note!

    I’ve only seen the BT Sport Youtube highlights, so didn’t get the best angle on it, but where did the handball occur in the build-up to Dave’s 5-4 goal? Was it him or somebody else that handled it?

    I think Pulisic would be very useful playing the role he did last Saturday and on Wednesday here. The game could be quite tight and someone with his ability to use his pace to get in behind and a bit of guile could be useful later in the game. I am of the view he should 100% start against United if fit though. Let our crowd get behind him a bit and let him press the hell out of that defence of theirs

    Yes, agreed, I don't think that would bare thinking about. We'd have been stuffed. I think we'll get there, I'd just personally like to see a bit more urgency about getting the defensive stuff together. The ability to keep clean sheets would come in very handy at the moment. Liked a lot of what I saw last night though. Reece looks very promising and I thought Gilmour had an excellent game. I also liked our response to their goal - push forward and look to score more. The last twenty minutes saw a nice change in approach too, instead of sitting on 3-1 or 4-1, the players pushed on to add to the tally. I think we've neglected the chance to do that at times in the recent past, so it was nice to see.
