No pre-match for Wolves yet? But a CL Final pre-match thread...

No regard for thread starters and their current form

I'm looking at you @Red_Jedi like many other posters will be! lollol
Well, as I said in the pre match champions league post - it was more about how people were planning on getting to Madrid/watching match - sharing ideas etc.

It was also moderated and approved before being posted - but then got locked by @Hope in your heart .The current days are crucial for those planning on travelling to Madrid - and I thought to merge that with a pre match as inevitably many may decide to travel later on, attend screenings etc etc would be very useful!

I’m also waiting for the wolves pre match but thought to leave that for regular thread starters.

Mods can delete my post for champions league if it has offended or inappropriate.

Or lock it as has been, which I find strange.

Yeah, are we that arrogant that we don't even care about Wolves match and look at a match 3 weeks from now? Come on.... And anyone ever checked @Red_Jedi's record yet? You sure you gonna take the leap there mate, with that kind of responsibility on your shoulder? I am doing something very different, hope it works..... I can't tell you what will work, if I do it won't happen. So here goes.

Must have been. First time in some 42 years, but needs must. Bit of a surprise to realize it though.
Well @Arminius , you had best get the praying mat out again because we still have a couple of awkward, season defining matches to go. As for myself, come this Sunday and also June 1st, I will most definitely have my fingers tightly crossed.

Having just watched the game after the 2nd goal while waiting for the kick off. BT sports said the delay was because VAR was checking on a Red card challenge I cant see anything that remotely even gave them that idea.
The taking out of Mané?

Probably already been commented on a few times, but just looked at the post match thread away to Barcelona and @ScottJones made the call early that it would be 4-0 on the return leg to the mighty reds. A true visionary!

@donks opened the Newcastle pre match thread, so I assume we are waiting for him to open the Wolves pre-match thread? His form guide reads 1 thread start and 1 win.

Do we know of any posters with a really bad record when opening pre match threads?

Can we get them to open a Brighton - City thread?

I watched the match and also a rerun of the game, and both times I missed "the taking out of Mané" and wondered why the VAR had been called for.
I have as much of an idea why the VAR was used as you. The only thing i could think of was Vidal going in with 2 feet off the ground and connecting with Mané, when I saw it the first time I screamed 'penalty' then realised Wijnaldum had scored so relaxed.
I mean Mané could have lost his foot. :) (just a snide remark about some other posters comments about players losing feet).

Was it Wijnaldum's headed second goal you're talking about? I ask because I will see if I can catch another rerun of the game and look out for the tackle.

No Gini's 1st. TAA played the ball in to Mané but it took a slight deflection. Mané had to come back deeper to get to the ball. Gini was attacking the box being tracked (presumably by Vidal) Vidal goes in 2 feet (presumably to take Wijnaldum out) and catches Mané with 1 of his feet.
Gini's 2nd goal it was Origi in front of him!

By the way I saw all that 1st time round. As I said I screamed 'penalty' before realising the ball was goal bound.

Ya I think he's back to the old Scott . was seemingly starting to get weighed down with starting the match threads and there was a lot of expectations riding on his shoulders. After that loss in Barcelona and someone taking up the match thread mantle it seems we got the old Scott back

At 4.06 Vidal takes out Mane with a two-footed lunge meant to challenge Wijnaldum. He completely misses Wijnaldum but takes out Mane who was coming towards the ball but was beaten to it by Gini. Mane may even have been trying to shield the ball/Gini from Vidal's attempted challenge.

You see Vidal take Mane out most clearly on the second and third replays (4.30-4.35).

Arguable that it could have been a red.

Cheers @Kopstar just checked the video you put up and saw the tackle on Mané. I'm not too sure whether it was deliberate or that he went for Gini and missed and caught Sadio, but it's of no consequence now because we knocked the dirty beggars out of the Champions League. Thankfully, Sadio didn't seem to get hurt by it either.
