Lazio vs Spurs, Liverpool vs Young Boys and Newcastle vs Maritimo: Europa League Open Thread

europa league Lazio vs Spurs, Liverpool vs Young Boys and Newcastle vs Maritimo: Europa League Open Thread

How about some traditional football on Thanksgiving Day? No, not that football, but some real football with three live Europa League matches featuring Lazio versus Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool against Young Boys and Newcastle United versus Maritimo.

A victory for Liverpool against Young Boys will see them through to the next round of the Europa League. The same applies to Tottenham Hotspur who, if they get a win in the Italian capital of Rome, will advance to the next round. Newcastle will also advance with a win.

With a win each, the prize for all three English Premier League clubs is a place in the Europa League knockout stage.

Before, during or after today’s UEFA Europa League match, post your rants, raves, questions or observations in the comments section below.

    Let’s see, football or football?

    Easy choice. :-)

  3. Dust says:

    Bale was onside from That great ball from Tom carrol! That was another goal disallowed… Unreal! Robbed already!

  4. Sacto Blues says:

    That has to be the second or third time the linesman has blown the offside call for Spurs both in Rome and WHL.

  5. Sacto Blues says:

    Lloris strong there with that save. I’ve been there when you get that service and think I have time to get off something quick and chunk a crap shot. Wish we could have the UK announcing crew.

  6. Dust says:

    Quality saves so far from Lloris

  7. Guy says:

    Lovin’ Hugo, Dust?

  8. jtm371 says:

    have you had your last posting about The BRAD!i think your nightmare is over.

  9. Guy says:

    Thought another of Dust’s favorites was about to come on. ;-)

  10. Guy says:

    If Lazio could finish this match would be out of hand by now.

  11. Guy says:

    I have to tune out. Guaranteed fur will fly.

  12. jtm371 says:

    WOW nice save viva Lloris!

  13. Dust says:

    No way Freezal makes 60% of Lloris saves today, especially that last save off the corner.

  14. Dust says:

    Ill take that!

    Great performance from Lloris, Démbèle gets time for fitness, carrol plays well.

    A draw or win at home in 2 weeks and we are through!

  15. IanCransonsKnees says:

    God I miss the Europa League, (starts to get misty eyed about The Mestella and Cathedral Square) ;-)

    Say what you want about it being mickey mouse but when you’re involved it’s a buzz and a half. I’d snap your hand off if you told me we’d qualify for it through the Fair Play standings.

  16. Andre says:

    Lloris looked awesome today. The Spurs backline don’t look too comfortable with the ball at their feet. Particularly in the second half it seemed like they were in a hurry to get rid of it and rarely in a constructive way.

    Adebayor was kind of MIA.

    • Dust says:

      I a point, the defense will,get better when it becomes consistent, Lloris in control, jan needs to stay at cb with naughton at lb to give some stability, jan ill then become more comfortable as the general infront of Lloris.

      it was interesting, the first 20 they played 442 then switched bale and siggy and went to a 4-2-3-1 then in the second half went back to a 442 and then went to a 4-2-3-1 when dembele came on.

      I think the disallowed goal and numerous decisions that went lazio’s way just got to them on the field.

      4 goals disallowed, 3 were legit against Lazio over the 2 ties.

      If brad was in goal, we loose that game. I honestly think we have dropped at least 4 points as a result of freezals errors against Norwich and west brom and another 1 against city.

      I think Lloris will show to be a great consistent keeper.
      Tom carrol had a good game, bale was too quiet for me as a captain. I think we looked most comfortable in the first half in Abbas 4231, ade was more involved. Dempsey was poor again unfortunately, although he was getting kicked quiet a bit.

      Looking forward to west ham!

  17. dust says:

    Apparently the attacks on Spurs fans were anti-Semitic in nature. How fif can ignore this is beyond me, especially after the racial chanting, so from words to violence, Platini needs to grow a pair.

  18. Mufc77 says:

    Dust did lloris do well enough today to keep his place at the weekend?

    • dust says:

      absolutely, the back four needs consistency, Lloris staying back there will help, need to settle on the centre and the left, I fear gallas will come in again, as long as huddlestone stays out i will be happy

      • Mufc77 says:

        Lol I don’t care about the rest of the team I need a goal keeper for my fantasy team and lloris is dirt cheap so it’s either him or that muppet Guzman from Villa, think ill take a chance and go with lloris and hope he starts.
