Great goal by Scholes, albeit a bit of a gift from Zambrotta.

If United let Barcelona monopolise possession in the second half like they did in the last 10 minutes of the first half then they could be in trouble.

I still think 1-1 and Barcelona to go through.

Jesus, this game is taking years off my life.

Tevez's work rate in this second half is awesome.

Decent win for United there - and while I don't usually support other British teams in the CL by default, I wanted them through.

Barcelona never truly threatened. Just a lot of ultimately useless pressure.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

At times I couldn't bare to watch so I had to flick the channel for a minute or two in the 2nd half. Man Utd let Barcelona have a little too much of the ball for my heart to take

Nah, even at the worst moments, there was no way I was taking my eyes off that game, even if it did bring me one step closer to a heart attack.

I watched the game in its entirety. The 2nd half was pretty crap. I mean Messi with all his fancy dribbling couldn't really do anything to change the flow of the game. Barca had no bite in their attack. All of their ventures into the box were snuffed out by the United defense.

Congrats to ManU - about time there was an all English final.

Anyone want to take bets on Risse scoring a hat trick tomorrow, 2 with his left and one with his right for good measure?

Just as long as he doesn't get his head near the ball.

Nicely taken by Scholes. Once United settled into the game after the goal, Barca rarely looked to score. Good performance. UEFA worst nightmare comes true, an all English final.

^^ Supposed they'd better get used to it, I doubt it'll be the last.

Delighted to be proven wrong last night, I thought Barcelona would score.

I think a Liverpool Vs Man Utd final would probably be a better game, but I suspect it'll be Chelsea.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Until Riise decided to become a pub player, Liverpool had the tie all but wrapped up. My better judgement says Chelsea will win but I am still going for Liverpool to have another great EURO night and beat Chelsea.

Also I agree that a MAN UTD/LIVERPOOL Final would be fantastic.

And Chelsea advances on a 4-3 aggregate after beating Liverpool 3-2 in extra time.
