I'm happy with our tie at the San Siro yesterday. We'll mash Inter on the return leg at Old Trafford in a couple of weeks.
Really wish we'd taken our chances yesterday. 0-0's always make me nervous going into home ties. Remember the last time mourinho took a team to old trafford in the champions league?


Heartbreaker.

Inter played way too safe but hats off to Man U playing the better game. All in all it was the INter Keeper that stole the show with Ronaldo as second best player but not being able to finish.


Hears to Juve winning and hopefully Real laying a smack down on Liverpool

I'll refrain from posting Liverpool-Real Madrid updates for fancy's sake (I'm sure Bel is at home watching it), so I'll comment about the other games.

1-0 Chelsea so far on Juventus. Drogba scores!

Pretty tied game. Real with dominating the ball more, but Liverpool very organized. Alonso almost scores from further than the center of the field.

Yeah, stupid foul. Madrid at least deserved a tie. Higuin sucks, he doesnt have the killer instict to be a striker in a team like Real. Liverpool played a really smart game, a little to Italian for my liking though.

probably similar to 'a little too nj devils' from the early 90's. defensive minded, trapping, waiting for opportunities style of play.

Anyone that follows soccer should know what Italian style means. Defensive minded, inferior offensive quality of players makes you play with all your players in your own field and wait for mistakes to make counters and score. Ugly and coward but effective. Liverpool didnt go to that extreme but they did play a little like that because of the injuries and they knew Madrid was on fire lately.
Real played a little better overall than the Reds but Benitez won the tactic battle.

Dude, no offence, but outside of Italians, NO ONE likes Italian football. It's the truth. Their play defense at all costs is ridiculously boring. It works but boring.

Also, the fact that at least in one major championship, the Italians get an opportunistic call is all frustrating. There is plenty of evidence.

Lastly, most people hate the Italian soccer because of the fan support. It's ridiculous. They're kinda like "Leaf Nation"....i.e. not truly knowledgeable, just hop on when they win and make excuses when they lose.

As for Spanish soccer. It's beautiful to watch. They're chokers though, save for 2008, but traditionally, they choke and it sucks because they're likely the most talented team in Europe next to England and the Dutch with the Germans, Italians and Croats not too far behind.

I just finished he game.

three things:

1. shut up Quad core. don't ruin a great victory.

2. YOSSI!!!!!


Fucking great goal.... I love this guy. He played a great game all around - all hustle and determination.
Carra and Skrtel were fucking ON today and proved a handful all game long. especially Skrtel. Rafa played conservative yes, but could anyone really blame him? And anyways watching every team in the premiership play that way AGAINST us, there's some justice in us using that approach - especially with how dangerous Madrid was playing in the first half. However, i will say that Liverpool played a much better 2nd half - all in all, i'm going to have to disagree with the Italian label.

3. your avatar will be pm'd to you tomorrow Belsius.

it makes me laugh.everyone laments the free flowing style of play the phoenix suns employ.everyone laughs at skilled teams that solely score. teams like the penguins and sidney and everyone would take ovechkin because he PLAYS D....everyone knows d wins championships.in basketball D is glorified and we raptor fans cry for a better defensive team and better defensive scheme,we want to draft better defensive players......hockey teams cry for d,win cups with d...YOU'LL WIN WITH D 90% OF THE TIME MORE THAN WITH O.....but god forbid italians put the onus on d and win because then crybabies and their inferiority towards italian soccer and catennacio have to bitch and moan about something.

SO.the entire world wins with d.in every other sport league d is put on a pedestal...but god forbid the italians master d and win with regularity....hate on bitches.thats all it is .hate....................british people love italian football.irish now have trappatoni,england have capello....does scotland even have a league..oh wait they do,go celtic!....maybe one day england will win a world cup other than the one winston churchill bought for them......untill then,hate on wankers.
