    21300B7A-811D-44FF-8EB5-35A5A35CBFD7.jpeg 7 years after Lenny got us into the CL last 16 with a home and away win against Spartak Moscow, we skelped Lazio home and away.

    Question is, what do you think was the harder teams to do this against?


    Spartaks team for those who can’t remember:

    Didn't realise they had Dzyuba.

    Lazio for me. Immobile and Milinkovic Savic would walk into almost any team in the world at the minute. Luis Alberto was sheer class too. Plenty of other talented players in there too like Parolo, Berisha, Lulic, Leiva.

    Easily Lazio. I actually fancied them to possibly win it out if they managed to qualify out of our group.

    Every inch a CL class team I think mate, it’s a monumental achievement.

    Good shout Spartak but definitely Lazio for me..

    Immobile and Correa are one of the most potent partnerships in Europe with an excellent understanding. I know Correa was out last night but Caicedo is no mug....just a cheat..

    Milinkovic-Savic is rated everywhere...although no by me over the 2 game's..

    Lazzari is excellent. Felipe. Parole. Lucas. Acerbi. Luis Alberto is a phenomenal player. Lulic..

    Bastos. Radu. Correa as I mentioned. Cataldi. Massive squad of their's that weren't even playing full of talent..

    From what I've seen they'll be finishing top 4 and getting a champion's league spot next year no question..

    They actually surprised me with their quality yet took 0 points from us. Insane achievement but we must kick on now. We can win this competition.

    It's hard to judge between the 2.

    Neither of them were a match for Lennon's Green & White juggernaut

    Such a tough one, Lazio so fresh in the memory I feel it’s that. Spartak was amazing at the time, but with all that’s happened and them being facist scum and beating them in the last minute at there own patch with 8k fans will be pretty hard to beat.

    Only two weeks after beating them in the last min at CP and their players thinking they were robbed and would easily beat us in Rome.

    For me Lazio. Spartak had a great team but I always thought we would beat them back then. Against Lazio I thought they beat us in Rome. Lazio have a few players who would have the pick of clubs.

    When the group was drawn I had any 2 from us, Lazio and Rennes. I pretty much dismissed Cluj tbh. What the * do I know, ehh?? That was a handy outfit we beat last night and they're a lot better than I thought they'd be. Same goes for Cluj.

    Ps- Lazio better than spartak I think.

    Lazio.

    At this moment in time they're a genuine CL level team.

    I'm still on cloud 9.

    Makes it all the more impressive that Samaras got so high for the winning goal if he had a primate weighing him down.

    The battle of the 5 o’clock kick offs. Memories of rushing home from school to catch the Spartak game. Great night that was as well.

    To answer the question, Lazio are a much better team though. But I also think our team now is better than 2012 team when we look at individual players.

    Lazio. Better team, worse supporters.

    Lazio.

    That Emenike was a right handful though.
