Subject: RE: BS: Football (not the U.S. kind)
Yep. A waste of two and a quarter hours of my life. At least a penalty shootout would have spiced it up a bit...

I think we need a hard think about why good attacking teams are being blunted so often. Could be lack of fans, could be VAR, could be good (or bus-parking) defences...That match sorely needed an early goal to get it flying. When Citeh score early it draws the other team out, they take more risks and we get more goals and more excitement. Shame that City always end up winning though!
