I'm surprised that Lampard came out as early as he did. Did he hurt himself?

Refs=joke.

I expected a team with the class of chelsea to try to do something besides defending. Sad. They did that very well. Oh well. Barsa deserved so much more. One game left.

How are the refs a joke? The commentator said that the spanish league is called alot tighter and diving is more prevalent compared to the English league.

Dani Alves and Messi are amazing like I've stated before. Also impressed by the skill of Iniesta on the ball today, but he dives too much. Or maybe it isnt that he's diving.. just he's so small so he goes down easier. Either way.. obi mikel, essien were unreal on defence today.

Back to stamford bridge we go .

I congratulate Man U on beating an undermanned Arsenal squad. Beyond the first 30 minutes where we looked like a deer caught in the headlights and were lucky to survive because Almunia is a good reactionary keeper, we kept with the Reds.

And, if Bendtner did better with his header in the late minutes we could've walked away with a 1-1 draw.

Also, I truly, truly, truly hate C. Ronaldo. He's a pouty, whining little bitch on the pitch when things don't go his way. Real Madrid would be morons to go after him and not target someone like Kaka who imo is a better player and less of a primmadonna. Anywho, we get Arshavin back next week who should give more support to Cesc and Adebayor up front. Being down 1-0 heading back to Emirates. Yeah, I'll take that.

couldn't agree more with you re: Ronaldo. He IS a classless prick in so many ways. Mind you, it does bring me some satisfaction when he gets dominated and he starts his hissy fits.

I think in the 60th minute or so in Wednesday's game, he was pushed off the ball, didn't get a call from the ref, turns around and starts stomping around like a child. I couldn't help but laugh at how ridiculous he is.

Its going to be awesome. Just part of what should be a great weekend. All my group of friends together. Some of them are Barcelona and Atletico fans who hate Real, so theres a lot of friendly tension and mocking each other in this games. And of course quite a lot of alcohol flowing. hehe

If I'm real, I target Kaka because he's the type of player they've missed since Zidane left and even Figo. Also, in the same breath I'd go after Ribery to compliment him as he's a great runner on the wings.

Villa I see going to England and Ibrahamovic isn't an upgrade over Raul.

Lol... yeah, it's kind of a shame that Ronaldo is on the squad because I can't stand him when he plays for Portugal. Hell of a player though.

For me England = Giggs, Rooney, Ferdinand... guys like that that I love watching on the international scene... I suppose that's why I cheer for Man U.

Yep, next game should be good. Just hope that the Reds can come out strong again to start... and just put some goals AWAY this time instead of bouncing them off the keeper! "D'oh"!

LOL if you think Real shouldn't go after C.Ronaldo... I think it's pretty crazy. He's the best player in the world.. like him or not (I hate him). He is the main factor that United are #1 in the world. If Man U do lose C.ronaldo I heard they are going to go after both Ribery on the wing and Benzema up front (so sad for Lyon ).

And I dunno if you guys are on any other soccer forums.. but is the Luis Fabiano to Chelsea realistic? or just a crazy rumour? Hopefully they are looking to get rid of J.Cole and Deco.

And to Bel and anyone else who follows Barcelona.. why did Ronaldinho leave?

Barsa was tired of Ronaldinhos bad attitude, terrible phisical status and subpar play so they got rid of him.

And no one is saying Cristiano is a bad player, he is one of the best, but the fact that he is even less loyal than players usually are (wich is not a lot) with his team should make teams wonder if its worthy to pay such crazy amount of money on him.

Jesus. i'm sure many Mancherster Utd. are pissed off with him, and would rather see someone else of slightly lesser skill (but better character) on their squad.

Not that i concern myself with what man utd. fans think.

I'll say Kaka and Messi are better all around players than Ronaldo. Really, put Kaka on Man U and I'd call them an unstoppable team because someone would finally be feeding Rooney instead of Rooney having to feed Ronaldo. I'd argue the presence of Giggs and Scholes on Man U add that "veteran" presence and really keep things in check on that team.

Soccer rumors are too hard to follow though espescially with Chelsea. I read the Fabiano piece but don't see it happening. Actually, yesterday read that they were interested in Slaven Bilic to coach their team, again not happening and he had a pretty good comment on the piece.

I'm not really sure i want to stick Rooney up top and have people feed him the ball. It's becoming more and more apparent that he's most effective floating behind the striker(s)

I'm not Ronaldo's biggest fan, but United come nowhere near to doing the double last season without him, and he's won United a few game this season. Messi's undoubtedly more skilled, but his injury proneness really worries me. I do really think it's a wash between Kaka and Ronaldo- his 06-07 is comparable to ronaldo's 07-08 and he hasn't lived up to that season, similar to Ronaldo. Ronaldo i think better compliments the team, as currently constructed( i'd take messi over him, but again, that injury proneness...

United have had far lass loyal characters than Ronaldo. The ultimate Judas cunt currently plays for Real. Schmeichel, paul ince, the list goes on...
