Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Damn.. looks like my dream finale may come true.. Bayern vs. Dortmund (and in England on top of it! )

Baring a catastrophic drop off in play quality the finale should be sealed after the thorough domination of the german teams over the spanish teams.

Looking forward to next weeks 2nd semifinals and then off to the finale!

If having two German teams at Wembley is the price to be paid for seeing Barcelona's utter annihilation then I'm more than happy with that.

Disappointing.

I was looking forward to their inevitable playoff capitulation. Now I couldn't give a toss about the playoffs.

Shouldn't complain too much though, Agent Davros is doing a sterling job of raising the expectation levels up there. Beating them just isn't the same when they come expecting a good hiding.

Used a free Sky Bet yesterday and Swansea have just given me £33 back Love it + Wigan on the verge of going down saves me from losing a bet with my brother.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Alex Ferguson on the verge of retirement?

This seems to have come completely out of the blue. Over the weekend there were stories that Moyes was being lined up as his new number 2 with the obvious intention of succeeding him (in fact I think the bookies have stopped taking bets now) but now it's being claimed it might be a straight swap, with Ferguson annoucing his retirement at the last game of the season?

Can't say I've ever really liked the man, but you cannot argue with his record. Greatest club manager ever, and probably will remain so.

Can Manchester carry on without him (always assuming this is true) or will they go the way of Liverpool?

Have to say it's a brave move to hire Moyes, but would at least make a change from the 'usual suspects'.

Edit to add: His retirement is now confirmed

Combination of factors at work here I think;

- David Gill going
- Premiership crown taken back from City so going out as a winner
- Moyes' contract being up at Everton
- Fergie's upcoming hip replacement

A shame. Even as a non-United fan, Ferguson's achievements there, and at Aberdeen beforehand, are nothing short of astonishing.

Astonishing however you slice it.

He's been Man Utd manager for as long as I've been alive. Absolutely phenomenal.

Looks likes Moyes is the man - so who's going to Everton? Martinez?
