    UK Politics: Awaiting MV3

    Voted Lib Dem in the end. A couple of different tactical voting websites gave different advice as to whether I should go for them or CUK in the South East, which wasn’t especially helpful. The polling station wasn’t particularly busy, but there was a rather anxious looking couple at the desk and a member of staff on the phone discussing how they weren’t down to vote when they thought they should be. Hopefully they weren’t EU citizens getting screwed over and it was resolved in the end.

    Football: pool in to the Final Spur of the season

    Shame Union didn’t make it. Hopefully they become the first 2. Liga side to win in the playoff for what seems an eternity. Good story in Paderborn over the last five years. Their last few seasons: 13-14: promoted to the Bundesliga 14-15: relegated to 2. Bundesliga 15-16: relegated to 3. Liga 16-17: relegated to Regionalliga, but reprieved when 1860 Munich have financial issues 17-18: promoted to 2. Bundesliga 18-19: promoted to Bundesliga

    Bielsa will be delighted - he’s got that end of season collapse down to its purest form. So John Terry vs Frank Lampard (& Ashley Cole) for a place in the Premier League (and the Chelsea job). I hope Villa win it. This Derby side is pretty useless, Leeds offered this win on a plate to them, but Villa will have a fighting chance with Grealish.

    Cagliari get away with their monkey chants against Moise Kean because they had "an objectively limited relevance". So as long as you racially abuse only one guy at a time it is apparently okay.

    Mike Dean in the away end at Forest Green vs Tranmere

    So Liverpool need a side to make a three goal comeback in barely any time. Better start putting those red ribbons on the trophy.

    They only need one goal if they don’t concede again.

    Football, a Sterling effort, but Virgil got Dijk'd.

    UEFA have justified the allocation by saying Baku only has the infrastructure capable of hosting 15,000 visitors from overseas at a time. Maybe they should’ve thought of that before they awarded the final to them. Or given them a Euro hosting berth for next year.

    Mkhitaryan - as Armenia and Azerbaijan have very poor relations. He missed the trip in the group stages when Arsenal played Qarabag.

    Fuck this sport sometimes. I feel so sorry for Hinteregger who has been immense through the knockout run and especially tonight. It was a good penalty too, keepers barely ever stand up, Kepa did and it still almost got through.

    Might be because I was supporting Ajax and am naturally a pessimistic football fan, but tonight’s result really has taken it to the point where ludicrously improbable Champions League comebacks are feeling rather blasé. As soon as the first goal went in, it seemed on the cards - though I wasn’t expecting the winner to come quite so late. In no way are lower league football clubs prospering at the moment. Just today we have had Bolton and Macclesfield’s continued existence fall into jeopardy. Go and have a look at the Accrington owner, Andy Holt’s twitter if you are really interested in what it is like.

    Abject from Barcelona across the two legs. Especially at the end, no sense of urgency whatsoever. Don’t think they had a shot with 15 mins to stay in the competition.

    Embarrassing how Liverpool fans have finally discovered who Luis Suarez is. Racism when playing for you - fine, general shithousery against you - unacceptable. Though booing him is pretty much the only atmosphere there is at the moment.

    The most un-City like goal they’ll score all season. The narrative levels went off the charts for a half second there when Kompany slipped and almost let Leicester straight back in.

    If City drop points tonight, do you rest players for the second leg and focus on the league?
