PEP IS SOMEHOW GROWING EVEN MORE BALD AS WE SPEAK

GROWING MORE FRAUDULENT AS WE SPEAK


Kriebelnekje429

SKINLESS PEP


mojambowhatisthescen

“Why do I even bother!?” - Pep, probably


TheGuineaPig21

didn't even try some avant-garde 9000 iq tactics this time, and still punished


dfla01

If they get to the final from here I can’t wait to see how he overthinks it


FireballHangover

He'll throw out the inverted Christmas tree


Cafris

Playing a 1234 with Ederson as a sweeper would be extremely exciting tbf.


-deleled-

Funnily enough that really is Pep's default formation on possession with inverted full back lol


Last_Lorien

He looked close to a mental breakdown for real, no pun intended


LegendDota

Would totally believe he has some feelings about going out like this to Real Madrid of any team, can't imagine he hates losing to a team more than them.


RodDryfist

More than you believe


Aru10

Incoming 200m for the next transfer window


mariyan1111

That's only for Haaland.

Price did drop a few days ago.

I'm ashamed of myself for laughing at this

what's the joke?


TheSilentSeeker

His agent who was getting 75 million of the transfer fee passed away a few days ago.

But traffic…


JuanMataCFC

anyone who left early tonight is even worse than the ppl who left the Etihad when City were 2-1 down vs QPR in 2012.


VeryBadflower

Some of our fans left at HT in Istanbul...


Arntown

I don‘t understand how fans can leave early during important matches like these. During a regular matchday when it‘s crystal clear how the game will end 5 minutes before the final whistle? Okay. But not when there‘s still a possibility.


1guy4strings

Meh, leaving the game at any point is a bit sad to me. Like, I’m not here just to see the result, otherwise I would stay at home and check it on my phone. It’s also the atmosphere, celebrating with the players after the game, having a pint and something to eat, chatting with my mates, go pitch side while the stadium clears etc etc. I don’t want to go to the stadium to spend the last 15 minutes of the game thinking about my travel back lol.


East_Ad4150

I get what you’re saying, but if you go week in week out for years then you do start thinking about your travel back around 20 minutes to go lol. I don’t personally dip before the end of the game (unless we’re 2 goals up or down, it’s a premier league game and I have work tomorrow and it’s already 10pm and I won’t be back till midnight) but I completely get why people do. It’s a lot of travel, hassle etc and if you wait those extra 5-10 minutes it can cost you an hour sometimes if you’re unlucky with trains/you drive. Having said that I wouldn’t dream of missing a minute of the last game of the season, a champions league tie etc. even if my team are getting bodied I’ll still watch and shout the whole way though because it’s not everyday you see games like that (Arsenal fan, been a while for us on the champs league front…)


Deluxe07

Fans who leave early piss me off so fucking much


Blewfin

I've done it before, midweek game and having to catch the last train. But not leaving a fucking champions league semi final...


MyUserSucks

last train is last train mate


longbeachlasagna

I dont care if we’re getting smacked. Im getting my moneys worth lol


djkamayo

they are jumping off bridges as we speak


SleepTightLilPuppy

Benzema will be there to catch them with his big, manly arms. "We've still got to show you something" he'll say and then score a Hatrick in the final.


kakje666

they're like the phoenix bird , they keep rising from their ashes

I think i have aged about 53 years since the knockouts started


CLOWN--BABY

Seriously, 3 ties in a row they won in the most RM way imaginable


LegendDota

They literally havent been favourites vs anyone in the knockout stage and thats kinda what the UCL is all about :)


jimbo_kun

The PSG “super team”. Revenge against the team who knocked them out last year and current trophy holders. And the manager they most want to defeat of any in the world. All come from behind, insanely dramatic finishes.


Youngest_boss

Salah: I want to play Real Madrid Benzema: Okay mate


ngolo_a

It’s just so much funnier to see city not get to final.


aridivici

That's the best feeling tbh. Take that 538. I am sure City is the undisputed favourite for the next year too.

Can't wait to see Haaland looking despondent as City go out in the semis next year

Big brain move by Ancelotti -- Wait until City sub off their offensive players, then score 2 goals.

I'm scared as shit now. At least we could rely on City's naivety in CL, now? We have to go against the devils themselves?

Even the use of "low-key" is an insult against a team like Madrid who keeps putting out the world's best teams round after round.


stratrookie

…you’re low key scared of the champions of Spain with the hottest player in the world?


HemaG33

And he’s pretty good at football, too!


Famous-Zebra-8298

One leg tie favors you over them


InLampsWeTrust

They seem to just wake up in the second half of games though it’s nuts at this point


bcotrim

And if this result confirms they'll rest their players until the game


papalouie27

Yeah, Real Madrid has already won the League. If City goes out, City has way more rest time than Liverpool who has FA Cup in between. If Liverpool are trying to win the quadruple, they have way less rest time than both City and Madrid.


Blazing_Shade

Will be hard. Liverpool is an outstanding team but think about it. Real Madrid wrapped up their league weeks in advance, and they have gone through PSG, Chelsea, and Man City, with all 3 comeback to win these games


arvindanar7

how


LosTerminators

This year we figured out the black magic doesn't disappear with Zidane


TheMexiManCan

Remember La Décima? Zidane was there with Ancelotti, where do you think Zidane learned such black magic?

Never count out the Madrid plot armor


zaid4eva

You what ever that trispool sheriff did to madrid was on hind sight wrong. Black magic stuff this.

10 knockout round goals in 1 season is fucking ridiculous.

Never lost his poise, even with a few minutes left of regular time.


frankfromr

That's the record, he equaled CR7 record of 10 goals in knockout stage.


Saspa314

— Carlo’s tactics


unorthodoxEconomist5

I'ma riot if he isn't as good with France. Nothing less is expected than 15 goals during the WC.

PerfectBlueOnDVD

This must be the most entertaining CL semi of all time. Feels like a 13 year old's Real Madrid self-insert fanfic.


KarlMarxExperience

Probably written from Rodrygo's perspective. 'Yes and then I get subbed in late. And in the dying minutes of the game when it all seems lost I score a goal .. 2 goals! With like a minute in between just back to back.'
