    Yes he is mobile and was particularly effective under Silva when he played away games instead of Deeney. Some really horrendous misses though. Would be great at City and we could be tempted by a swap deal involving your reserve striker, "Aguero" I think?

    I wonder if there were a few doubts when the team did come on with Jesus in for Aguero?

    Didn't matter in the end - if anything the former probably wanted to prove a point as with KDB when he came on .

    No there weren't really any doubts. Sergio is fabulous but Jesus is very much a work in progress who offers something a little different and at 25 million was good value !
    KDB really was just buzzing full of enthusiasm he has had 5 separate injuries this term. Just pleased to play a part.
    All three would be useful additions to your hornets squad? Just don't offer the lad who wore tights mid May as a swap! It's too cold in Manchester for him!

    I do like Cathcart also! Looks decent what little I have seen......

    Ex Man U of course - fairy solid although managed to set up Shane Long for the fastest ever Premier league goal.

    Gerard Deulofeu - probably knows Pep from his Barca days and is a great player on his day but very inconsistent.

    Probably not Guardiola's type of player then!

    Well,after a week of everyone being most kind it had to end!
    Trevor,in my 6pm group had his opening line as follows " How did you enjoy Wembley then?"
    It transpired that his wife is on a oestrogen blocking drug* and he said to her " That might stop you being so moody".
    I told him he'd missed his calling as a diplomat.
    His line calls are awful too!

    HB1 - Another disappointing cup final for your 2nd team!

    Which hurts more?

    Guess its soften by the league title win and the Champions League extra might feel worse in Barcelona.

    I have decided to remove '6' from my tennis scoring.
    It will be known as '5 plus 1' from now on.

    Tough week for HB1. Failed more finals than a Jeremy Kyle guest.

    If I was him, I'd switch to PSG next season. Barca can't be trusted to provide those endorphins anymore.

    Happened at the semi as well, there were a few fans trying to generate an atmosphere at both but it was just those.

    The thing is, Barca have won that competition so many times and when we lose one, it's actually quite a novelty. Previously we won it 4 times on the spin, have been in 9 of the last 11 finals and have won it 30 times in total, which is more than anyone else.

    Barcelona are not my 2nd team......joint first with Watford. Of course I'd rather we win it, but it's not like we're going to go another 35 years before we get into another final. We'll probably win it again next season, certainly more than once in the next 5 years. It's nice, but it's something we always do, so it's not all that special.

    It's the other side of the coin to Watford. This is why I find Watford exciting because victory is relatively rare. When you follow a big successful team, the wins don't mean so much, even winning the big competions. Ok, winning the league and CL still holds a lot of prestige, but it's something we expect to do EVERY season.

    I can’t see us managing a draw against City for a long time.

    Just watched the first 25 minutes back. We were playing so well for the first quarter of the match. The commentators were talking up our chances. So close to taking the lead and a penalty. Had to stop the play at 25 mins sharp though.

    This somehow makes it more tragic, rather than better
