Craig Burley is such a hipster he prefers Ajax vs. Spurs over Barca vs. Liverpool | Best of the Week

  • Published on Apr 20, 2019
  • Craig Burley and Steve Nicol's Scottish accents, Shaka Hislop going to the Masters, an absurd Lionel Messi vs. Tiger Woods debate, Alejandro Moreno's haunted house, Mina Rzouki's desperate Premier League top manager pick, and Craig's hipster attitude about Ajax vs. Spurs and Barcelona vs. Liverpool in the UEFA Champions League semifinals all make ESPN FC's Best of the Week.

    Personally I’m more exited to watch Ajax v Spurs cause I really want one of them to win. Barca Liverpool might be a bigger game paper cause the clubs are bigger, but this big game never become the spectacle everyone think they will be.

      @Thomas Muller
      Liverpool are more defensive than last season but I wouldn't say they are playing defensive football. They are still 2nd highest scorers in the Premier League by some way. Liverpool are mostly trying to attack still.

    • Thomas Muller
      Thomas Muller 9 months ago

      Against a hopeless Bayern defence and Porto... they would’ve scored 12 overall if they’d been attacking

      3 goals in Munich and 4 goals in Porto?

    • Thomas Muller
      Thomas Muller 9 months ago

      Manchester United wouldn’t have beaten Barcelona if they were more clinical. If they needed to, Barcelona could easily have scored 7 in that second leg

    • Thomas Muller
      Thomas Muller 9 months ago

      No they wouldn’t have. Not only are Liverpool playing very defensively this season, but Messi was told to play deeper, that’s why Manchester United didn’t have a shot on target. Valverde was criticised for telling Messi to play deep, so I don’t think he will in the next away leg.

      John Cornell can you even read? When did I ever say that the football world revolves around Messi and Barcelona. You're the one who keeps bringing that up when absolutely no one has ever said it. Nobody cares if EPL is the most watched league, if they can't perform in Europe or win the UCL then that's just it. Just because they're the most watched doesn't make them automatically European champions.
      Oh they care okay? And even if they don't, they know him, so that would merit for even just a bit more support than those they don't know. It's simple as that. You don't need to be a fan to support a team. And yes, nobody would cheer nor cry if Barcelona wins it, or Liverpool, or Ajax, or Tottenham. Nobody is expecting anyone to. So why's this argument even happening? Like I said, you're just assuming things that hasn't even happened just to get high up on your so-called opinion.
      I was never in my Barcelona bubble. You're just triggered that I support Barcelona and not an English team. Lol why don't YOU get out of your EPL bubble shitt and find out that hurrahh, not everyone would be supporting them. Lol And when did I show arrogance? I simply stated the fact that I want Barcelona to win then you went all butthurt and crybaby on me disputing "statements" I never said. That's what you call ignorance. When you're too much into your EPL shit so you call out everyone who supports another team. Again, hilarious.
      And how many seats does Camp Nou have compared to Anfield? Anfield have 54,000 seat capacity, while Camp Nou have 99,000. Even if we have 20-30,000 empty seats, we'd still have more fans watching than you could ever do, with just 54,000 seats. Goes to show how much idiocy is running through your veins, you can't even compute that and you dare go mention about it? How embarrassing.
      Yes, everybody expects something out of Barcelona. Even the haters expect them to lose, so they can troll them to no end, just like you. Or did you think that I was talking about "winning" again? Didn't I say win or lose? Lol There's really no hope for you. Because of your hatred, you assume everything I said is to put Barcelona on all positive pedestal. You didn't even get that simple phrasing for fuck's sake. How stupid can you be?
      Lol and here we get to statistics. How sure are you that only few people expect Barcelona to win? Do you have proven facts to back you up? Coz' the last time I checked, the betting odds are mostly in Barcelona's favor, against Liverpool, AND winning the UCL. Just coz' you try so desperately hard to disregard Barcelona's chances, doesn't mean most people would too. You're just one delusional dickhead. Lol
      LMFAO how pathetic are you? Just coz you've been to more games or hundreds of finals doesn't make your opinion more valid than mine. What does attending more games have to do with this argument anyway? Oh right, because you're so desperate to have your opinion be heard. LOL and just so you know i've been a football fan since I was 4 years old, i've been to El Clasicos and finals, even those finals against Manchester United in which Barça destroyed them in both, btw. 2007? Messi wasn't even in his prime. You seriously gonna put that against him?? Lol and good to know i'm not wrong for saying you're a Liverpool fanboy. No wonder you're so butthurt. Scared already?? 😂
      PS: when you've got nothing logical and sensical to say so you resort to making fun of people's youtube username, calling them 12 year olds. And bringing up the most pathetic of them all, - their own age, as if being older would magically make their arguments above everyone's. Sorry to say, but you don't even act your age. Arguing over something so trivial as me supporting MY own team.

      @John Cornell that semifinal 2nd leg match against Chelsea was a disgrace. But, let us be civilise here. None of the team in Europe as corrupt as Real Madrid. Give credit where it is due. Barca plays outstanding football for the last decade, probably the best world had ever seen. They could easily won at least 5 or 6 UCL in Messi era. But, Real practically founded this tournament(won the first 5, lol), of course they are always favoured. Knowing the team that Barcelona have this last decade, Real & Uefa must not let them chase the UCL trophies count. I genuinely hate that Barcelona are too good for other team, but that's the benchmark that every other team longing for.

      spurs are gonna qualify. I believe.
      And if they do, they'll face barca.
      Because 8 pl teams made it to the round of 16. Half of them(4), made it to the quarter final.
      Half of those that made it to the quarter final(2), now have made it to the semi final.
      So i think, half ( 1 ) will make it to the final. And i think it'll be spurs

      You're clearly clueless about LFC's current football style if you think they're all about attack. They're not the LFC of last season. Now they're WAY more balanced and not only attack but has a solid defense, can't say the same thing about Barca this season. Barca's defense looks shaky to me if they're facing a good attacking team (like LFC). It's going to be a tie but I'd go for LFC solely for their defense advantage.

      K.O.F Çhamp ok bro relax, the only time you’ve started totally dominating Madrid was this season. They lost to the 2x champions league winner in a CL finals, beating Madrid in la liga and champions league is a different story.(previous years). 2 goals they conceded were goal keeper error, their star player amp Salah was injured at the beginning of the game.
      Ok but since Barcalona lost to Roma and Liverpool beat Roma that automatically makes Liverpool the stronger side? No, just like the same thing you’re saying about Real Madrid.

      Rickard LeQuéso In sports, a competition, it’s only about winning, not losing. The objective is to win. However possible. If you are utilizing a particular strategy that you may benefit from in order to win, you use it. You would to if it was the best option. In competition all is fair. What do I care if the sport is boring? If you root for a team competing it will never be boring. Bandwagon fans want their cake and to eat it to. That’s why they chose a top team to follow. When you are born to root for a club, you want it to win. If it’s by defending well a much bigger club, well, so be it. The objective is to win. Simply. Win.
