Guardian - søn, 12/05/2019 - 20:19

Liverpool's attempt to dethrone Manchester City as Premier League champions ended in failure with the reigning champions completing the season with one more point than their title rivals.

Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur completed the top four, while Huddersfield Town, Fulham and Cardiff City were relegated. Here's a look at some of the key moments this season

Tottenham, Everton in entertaining draw

Tottenham confirmed their place in the Champions League for a fourth successive season after playing out an entertaining 2-2 draw with Everton.

Christian Eriksen snatches draw against Everton but Spurs finish fourth

Guardian - søn, 12/05/2019 - 18:00

Tottenham were determined to look up rather than over their shoulders and, after the dramatic manner of their surge into next month’s Champions League final against Liverpool, who could blame them? As such, their target for the final day of the Premier League season was to wrest third place from Chelsea because the mathematics of making sure of fourth ahead of Arsenal were overwhelmingly in their favour.

They could not manage it. Everton were the better team and they took charge in the second half with goals from the former Arsenal winger, Theo Walcott, and Cenk Tosun. Christian Eriksen’s rasping low free-kick earned Spurs a draw but they had needed to better Chelsea’s result at Leicester – and that would also finish in a draw.

Liverpool and Spurs fans learn a hard lesson in basic economics | Larry Elliott

Guardian - søn, 12/05/2019 - 13:56

Despite all the talk of supporters being gouged over travel costs, this is the way markets work

For supporters of Liverpool, Spurs, Arsenal and Chelsea it has been quite a week. First they had the joy of seeing their teams get through to the finals of Europe’s two cup competitions: the only time there has been a clean sweep by English clubs. After the euphoria, though, came a hard lesson in basic economics.

As the final whistle blew at Anfield, following Liverpool’s amazing comeback against Barcelona, anyone logging on to airline websites found the price of a ticket to Madrid – where the final of the Champions League will be held – had rocketed to more than £700 on the weekend of the match. When Spurs scored a last-minute winner against Ajax to join Liverpool in the final, prices rose again and not just for direct flights to Madrid but for alternative routes as well.

Psychological momentum helped Spurs and Liverpool reach the Champions League final, even if they did not realise it

Whatever you think about José Mourinho, most would agree he knows a thing or two about football. Surveying the two epic semi-final second legs of the Champions League, he came to two very different conclusions about Liverpool’s and Tottenham’s unlikely victories.

Premier League 2018-19 fans’ verdicts. Part two: Leicester to Wolves

Guardian - søn, 12/05/2019 - 10:00

Fans review the season with one game to play – the stars, the flops and the moments that made them smile

Part 1: Arsenal to Huddersfield

I think “all’s well that ends well” is a good enough way to sum up Leicester’s season. Try as he might Claude Puel’s footballing revolution never really caught on but thankfully we’ve found a better fit in Brendan Rodgers. There’s a sense of optimism on Filbert Way again. 7/10

Ecstasy, despair and how the great game reminded us of the ties that bind | Kevin Samson

In a week of wild drama, football took fans from helplessness to hope. Defying its tribalism, it also brought together huge swaths of the nation

Eleven minutes into the second half, as Gini Wijnaldum’s header fizzed into the top corner and Liverpool took a 3-0 lead in their Champions League semi-final last week, I just stood there, motionless, staring at my mate Mick Potter with bulging eyes. He looked back, shaking his head. His dumbfounded expression said: “We’ve seen a lot, you and me – but nothing like this.”

I’ve known Mick since 1982. We have seen a lot together – Heysel, Hillsborough, dark, dark days as well as glorious times following our team. As with all friendships – your work, your family – your fate can draw you away, but there’s always that sinew that connects you. Our team; our history. The things we’ve done together, as supporters.

All we want is to see and feel that our players crave what we crave, and try everything to deliver the fans’ dreams

The Observer view on English clubs’ unprecedented success in Europe | Observer editorial

Guardian - søn, 12/05/2019 - 07:00

A mighty week that celebrated heart, principle and defiance

Jürgen Klopp grinning with all those mesmerising teeth. Mauricio Pochettino in bits and tie askew, like the father of the bride waving off his daughter on her wedding night. Glenn Hoddle dancing a jig in the studio while the nation feared for his ticker. Has there ever been a week like this one for England’s football clubs?

For people who had paid those very-hard-to-justify subscriptions to Sky and BT, or who found the right excuses for four consecutive nights in the pub, there has been a sustained injection of head-shaking, armchair-roaring miracle. How might you objectively measure such a week against all the weeks that have gone before? Careful linguistic analysis of punditry shows the word “unbelievable” was uttered more frequently, and in a greater variety of accents, than on any previous occasion. (Jordan Henderson, the lion-hearted Liverpool captain, managed a dozen utterances single-handedly to the TV interviewer, while his teammates sang “You’ll Never Walk Alone” back to the Kop.)

Spurs ready for final after watching Liverpool and dancing to Oasis

Liverpool may yet deny Tottenham a historic European triumph but Jürgen Klopp’s team helped Spurs set up a Champions League showdown that few believed possible. Watching Tuesday’s extraordinary events at Anfield drove Spurs to perform similarly improbable heroics on Wednesday.

English fans warned to beware ticket touts in rush for European finals

Guardian - lør, 11/05/2019 - 16:06

Some websites list £10,000 tickets for Liverpool-Tottenham Champions League final in Madrid

Fans travelling to the finals of Europe’s two major club competitions have been warned about touts who are willing to exploit their eagerness to get to the matches.

Tout websites are listing tickets for as much as £10,000 each for the Champions League final in Madrid between Liverpool and Tottenham on 1 June. The feverish rush for tickets to the game has prompted concerns that some fans may put themselves at risk of being ripped off by bogus sellers. “With football fans on the lookout for tickets to witness a piece of history, scammers are waiting on the sidelines, ready to take advantage. Fans should look out for warning signs and be aware of the risks when purchasing tickets, especially through a third-party site or social media,” said Ross Martin, head of digital safety at Barclays bank.
