Stupid challenge from Albrighton, he gave the ref a decision to make (which he duly fucked up but still stupid from Albrighton).
Its only stupid because the ref got it wrong. If he gives a free kick there then its the right thing to do from Albrighton as he's stopped one of the best strikers in world football driving uncontested into goal.
It's actually a good foul really.

Though Ndidi could have been done for one there so I guess we're even now.

He was at full speed and therefore not a straightforward call. As soon as Albrighton takes him out, the ref has a decision to make. If you take a gamble by going in like that then you have to take some of he blame yourself.

And no foul is a good foul. That's a ridiculous comment!

No its not. Theres plenty of instances which are considered good fouls.
For a hypothetical lets say you're leading in the second leg but an away goal from your opponent wins them the tie. 92nd minute they break, youre the last defender 1 on 1 with a top striker who will likely beat you, you take him down. No ifs no buts no sportsmanlike conduct, you put him on his arse. Good foul.

Loads of fouls are good fouls.


It's not Albrighton's fault the referee is blind.

Mahrez, you have 120 minutes left in the tie, you're not that desperate yet.

Torres giving us a reminiscence of his Chelsea form there.

Decent result for Leicester that. Could have easily played next week's second leg with a 3 goal deficit.

From a defensive standpoint we looked a lot better when we went 4-1-4-1, attack wise we weren't at it at all. Not terrible though, but we might need Gray in the next game for a bit more goal threat. Huth suspended, Morgan still injured. Bleak.

Leicester a bit unlucky with the penalty decision then?

Maybe one will go their way in the home leg.....

Predictions for how many offside goals Real will have given to them tonight?

Would be great if they get a "dose of their own medicine" this time. Although I can't stand Atletico either but they are the "lesser evil"

This is domination so far. They might not even need all the offside goals.

Ronaldo will transition into a centre forward target man/poacher and play at the top level until his 40s. After tonight I'm sure of it.

Also I think Kroos was basically flawless tonight. From where I was sitting, he played his role exactly as required, but to an almost unreal level.

A real lack of interest in the CL thread in recent times. Out of curiosity, it it because of all games being moved to BT? I've only seen one CL game in two seasons because of it

Leicester, Man City and Spurs have very few posters on the forum, it's only really Arsenal with a decent number of posters that had a team in it. So that makes a difference.

Juve's defence is a different proposition to Manchester City's and Dortmund's - Monaco are going to have to work hard to finish this leg in a advantageous position.
