*****The Official Europa League Final Match Thread*****


Recommended Posts

My main takeaway from the game was that Tav was awful, and that set the tone for us. We just never got going, despite taking the lead we were riddled with errors.

Can’t fault the effort and they overachieved, but there’s many that are mentally weak, injury prone or just not good enough. 

Harsh maybe, but there’s still massive questions around this squad and their mentality. Will be torn up in the summer.

I'm actually fed up reading this pish that it was a shocking decision to let Ramsey take a penalty.....has it ever occurred that Ramsey was man enough to want to take a penalty.....fucking easy to criticise once the deed is done, fuck me two fantastic players in Roberto Baggio & Franco Baresi missed penalties in a world Cup final..... as gutting as it was, shit happens, its part and parcel of football ffs

I said before the game never wanted him near the pitch. He shouldn't have been given the chance to take a penalty, in his current condition he's not good enough. Someone who's given their all this season takes it and misses I could deal with that a bit better. But ramsey's been an absolute fucking piss take so for him to swan up as Billy big baws and jump in ahead of say lundstrum I just find hard to take.

You name 2 guys at the top of their game missing penalties and not some cunt who decides when and where to turn up,wales is a good example.

Just because he volunteered doesn’t excuse it from being a horrendous decision by the manger which is also part and parcel of football.

On ability Ramsey would’ve took a penalty for me all day long 

But as soon as I seen him about to step up I just had a sinking feeling. Guy has been subject of ridicule for being an awful signing and it was set up for him to miss and get even more 

It was a shit penalty but he was man enough to take it and you won’t see me faulting him for that. Goldson letting that cross run was the moment

I genuinely have no idea regarding Ramsey’s ability intaking penalties - he may have scored with loads in his career, or none - I don’t know. I’m sure someone will.

Same I just think if he was someone who had been here for ages for example based on his ability, experience and not being overawed by the occasion you’d think he’d be a good choice 

But based on what’s happened since he arrived I wouldn’t have had him on one

To be fair, the Germans correctly identified Tavernier and Kent as our main men and handcuffed them accordingly.

We appeared to have no Plan B, hence the endless punts up the park, so predictable.

If I have one criticism of Gio, it is that, on this one critical occasion, he didn’t have a solution. He should have anticipated their stifling of two key men and had other options.

Gutted, can’t even get up for the Scottish cup final today,  only going because the wee man would not miss it for the world.

That has hurt more than any other game in my life, bloody penalties

Can't argue with this.  One kick of the ball makes so much difference.

When you consider will we ever get another chance against a team as beatable as Frankfurt.  Devastating.

Not as easy to change it when you look at the options from the bench mate, a fit Morelos or Roofe gives us more options to change the way we were playing, as you say they done their homework to cut out the supply

I will reiterate....that is not the argument....just for the record it probably wasn't any worse than Tavs...just the goalie went the wrong way with Tavs 

The Japanese guy that hit the post and went in wasn’t great either ,bawhair further right and he’s missed .

Fine margins .

 

At start of the penalties we had everything in our favour .Going first and into our end was a huge advantage.
