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.

      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.

      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 Month 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.

      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

      Fun fact. Klopp has never lost a 2 legged European tie while at Liverpool. He has reached the final in the two seasons he's had in Europe with Liverpool and is already in another semi final. His 3rd in 3 seasons.

    • Designated Shitposter
      Designated Shitposter Month ago +2

      Klopp's changed his tactics and formations many times this season.
      Also Liverpool don't even attack like they did last season.
      There's more defensive solidity hence only 20 goals conceded in 34 league games.
      You clearly don't know what you're talking about.

    • PreeStyle Smith
      PreeStyle Smith Month ago +2

      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.
