(BBC)   For the first time in 17 years, there will be no English clubs in the quarterfinals of the Champions League. But it's OK, because finishing in 4th place in this year's English Premier League is a bigger deal anyway   (bbc.co.uk) divider line 118

I'm pretty new to soccer.  How does extra time work?  Is it sudden death?

2 full 15 minute periods.

No, just extra time. Penalty kicks if it's still tied after that.

But away goals stll count, so the only way it can go to kicks is if it stays 0 - 0.

I'm kinda torn.
If Spurs lose this, that means they free up their schedule to concentrate on securing a top 4 (and thus CL spot) in the EPL.
If they win this, they'll have to deal with two high pressure situations (EPL & Europa League) and could potentially lose the chance at a top 4 spot.

Then again, no one likes to lose. C'mon Spurs, almost had that one.

ADE!
Who saw that coming?

Okay, with away goals, this means Inter has to score twice now, right? (to win that is)
 
2013-03-14 04:12:24 PM  

Mr_H: Okay, with away goals, this means Inter has to score twice now, right? (to win that is)


Correct. No chance for pens now.
 
2013-03-14 04:12:45 PM  

Mr_H: Okay, with away goals, this means Inter has to score twice now, right? (to win that is)


Correct, also means no penalties.  I don't agree that away goals should count in extra time, but I don't make the rules (even though I should).

Scoring
1. Should the entirety of the ball cross the plane, a goal is scored.
  1a.  If said goal is against Stimied in a Rut's team, the goalscorer shall be flogged.

Pretty much, yep.

Spurs are screwed now. Inter is bringing in a god damn superhero.
 
2013-03-14 04:20:33 PM  
Also I have to go to class now and will have to follow along with BBC's live text. Come on Spurs, hold out just a bit more!
 
2013-03-14 04:25:14 PM  
Squeaky bum time!

Arsene Wenger likes this.

Did that medics jacket say "Chef Doctor"?
 
2013-03-14 04:31:46 PM  
10 mins to choke it away again.
 
2013-03-14 04:33:00 PM  
I guess this does prove that Spurs are a one-man team at this point in the season.

/should have brought in a striker
 
2013-03-14 04:35:33 PM  
Is Dempsey injured?

Thigh problem. Should be back at the weekend.

You lucky bastards.

Skin of your teeth spurs. Skin of your mother-farking teeth.
 
2013-03-14 04:40:03 PM  
Chelsea with a gift.
 
2013-03-14 04:40:51 PM  
BTW.. I love the Europa League jacking of this thread.

Meh, I'm subby and I like the EL. Jack away.

No one will remember a 2nd 3rd or 4th place finish in 20 years. A European trophy is a different story

You want something weird, tune into Fenerbache - Plzen. It's being played in an empty stadium
 
2013-03-14 04:52:06 PM  
STEAUA!!
 
2013-03-14 04:52:32 PM  
Bucharest with an away goal.

For what, racist fans?

Not news: Fans throw road flares onto the field. Solution: Ban home fans from entering the stadium. Fark: Fans parachute signal flares over the stadium walls, onto the field

My beautiful game going over worst own goals...

Mine is J.A Riise vs. Chelsea in the champs league...I remember that moment like it was yesterday.

drewogatory: You suck and you are holding back Arsenal.

If you believe this you're an idiot. Arsenal is practically a model for how a team should be run and maybe excepting Barca they are the best run club outside of Germany (which due to their rules is far,far and away the best run league in the world).


Nobody questions how well run the club is run.  Everybody sane who follows The Arsenal questions Wenger's transfer policy, how a £150 Million payroll amounts to jack and shiat when it comes to trophies, his stubborness and his inability to be critical of his own team when they give a subpar performance.

Also:  see Nottingham Forest and Brian Clough's last years there as a prime example of when people do not hold the manager accountable and the results of said lack of accountability.

I love Arsene to death, but there's a reason why Sir Alex Ferguson is about to win another PL title and why Arsenal are struggling to get 4th...and it ain't the payroll.

EBJT gets one for the Blues, now they need another.
 
2013-03-14 05:34:45 PM  
TORRES!
 
2013-03-14 05:35:39 PM  
Torres just pulled them ahead.
 
2013-03-14 05:38:24 PM  
I understand why he's furious too. He was rolling around the turf like a biatch. Play continued and he was in the way. He should be furious for being so stupid.
 
2013-03-14 05:48:11 PM  
Hazard suarezed (Baled?) the shiat out of that.
 
2013-03-14 05:48:55 PM  
Hahahaha
 
2013-03-14 05:49:58 PM  
Chelsea win a penalty, which Torres promptly volunteers to take....and misses. Torres gonna Torres. Lulz.
 
2013-03-14 05:50:57 PM  

ScouserDuck: Hazard suarezed (Baled?) the shiat out of that.


Eh, it looked valid. He got hit knee-to-knee, and those can hurt.

Sure. But that contact happened after he made the 2 foot leap to go down. He jumped into it.
 
2013-03-14 05:53:01 PM  
Ooh close but a miss nonetheless. Too bad Nando.

What a last second winner from Newcastle.
 
2013-03-14 05:58:15 PM  
PAPISS!!!
There's a dagger in the heart.
 
2013-03-14 06:00:49 PM  
Nice to see Newcastle get the late winner
