This result really puts the specter of Barcelona lying down on the final day to deny Madrid the title back on the cards.
How does that happen?
If you assume that the probabilities of the outcomes in all three games are split 70-20-10, Liverpool has something like 17% chance to win it (and Chelsea is at less than 0.5%)
So was 3-3 today the single greatest advert for GD possible, or further sign that GD is a stupid way to determine "champions"? Discuss. Show your work.
Yeah, I feel like Liverpool winning on GD was pretty farfetched the whole time. Make sure you get the win and just hope City drops points.
I hate to say this because I know how painful it must be to LFC fans, but that was a terrific game to watch.
A little late, but one thing I forgot to mention about Rodgers' post Chelsea comments is that they were largely a paraphrase of comments Mourinho himself had made following the Sunderland Capital One loss. I haven't seen this mentioned anywhere, which is unfortunate. Mourinho himself talked about how parking the bus was easy to coach and that it does not allow players to express themselves.
Lots of sour grapes from Rodgers to be sure, but the bits about coaching the bus and players expressing themselves are pretty much exactly things Mourinho himself had said.
"We had one team that needed three points to have a chance to survive, and they didn't play to win," Mourinho told Sky Sports.
...We were waiting for a kind of crazy game, especially in the second half, where they would gamble everything to try for a last chance to survive, but they didn't. Even worse - they defended much more but that's their problem. We have not a right to criticise."
Tottenham have apologised and begun an investigation after claiming that the hacking of their social media accounts was the reason a video was posted poking fun at Liverpool's collapse in the Premier League title race. ...
It read: "Brutal but very funny. The biggest capitulation since Newcastle in the '90s." That referred to the 1995-96 Premier League season, when Newcastle let a 12-point lead slip away and finished second to Manchester United.
The tweet was accompanied by a Vine video which segued from Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard leading an inspirational team huddle after victory over City to his slip to gift fellow title contenders Chelsea the opening goal in their recent 2-0 win at Anfield. That was followed by footage of Dwight Gayle's equaliser for Palace, a close-up of the 3-3 scoreline from Sky's coverage and an unrelated clip of Palace boss Tony Pulis laughing in a BBC interview.
Paris St Germain and Manchester City face fines of 60 million euros (49.2 million pounds) and limits on their Champions League squads for next season for breaching UEFA's Financial Fair Play rules, a source close to the process told Reuters on Tuesday.
UEFA said last week that nine unnamed clubs faced punishment under new rules designed to force teams to limit their financial losses and make football more economically stable. Confirmation of the sanctions could come by the end of this week.
French sports daily L'Equipe reported on Tuesday that Qatari-owned PSG would be fined and have their Champions League squad capped at 21 players instead of 25 next season under a proposed settlement. The club's wage bill would also be capped and the fine spread over three years.
A similar settlement is believed to have been offered to City but the English club is disputing the terms.
the avarice showed by Rodgers was deservingly punished again.
