Aww, too bad. It would have been absolutely fucking hilarious if Ronaldo had been responsible for the defeat because of the stupid penalty-trick he makes every time.

Well, they did the double! I'm no great fan of Man Utd, but I'm happy for Ryan Giggs - he breaks Charlton's record for appearances, scores in the shootout, and is in a double-winning team. All in the same match. Nice one, Ryan!

A decent final in the end, despite the concerns around another Man Utd Vs Chelsea snorefest.

Nothing in it really and I don't particularly think that either side deserved to lose. Unfortunate that John Terry missed a vital kick, I thought he'd been superb throughout.

Avram Grant showed great dignity in defeat and I was pleased to see him 'managing' Terry in the aftermath of the defeat.

50 years on from Munich, I guess it was written that Utd would win it. Bad luck Chelsea, but a very good advert of British and European football.

Hey, if this game stays 1:1 until after the extra-time, an english team will win a penalty shoot-out, a historic event - at least something about this game would be extraordinary then.
No only England sucks at penalty shoot-out. English Clubs have won plenty of them.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Now thats a proper final, a game of two halves indeed and a large slick of 1999 luck for Utd with the woodwork just like back then saving them twice. Extra time was fairly even and what a header by Terry to keep Giggs shot away from the goal but am happy Man Utd won for Paul Scholes especially.

Drogba is a complete fool and I think sealed his own fate concering his Chelsea future and I didn't expect Terry to miss but then again the same could be said for Ronaldo who needs to cut out tricks for pens.

I think its fair to safe Ronaldo can do it in the finals because his goal was taken very well and he troubled Essien all night long. I feel sorry for Rooney who was repressed by Fergies tactics though he made several excellent passes that reminded me of David Beckham.

I thought that was just bad tactics by Grant. I have cringed whenever Essien is being played at the RB. One his talent is clearly being the driving force in the midfield. Two he has very little defensive nous. Considering his quickness and pace he could've easily kept Ronaldo in his pockets just like what Ashley Cole does nearly all of the time. Fergie got it right by telling Ronaldo to stay on the left side. Look at the Barca game this year with Zambrotta shutting down Ronaldo and the Milan games last year with the combo of Oddo and Maldini which made him invisible. Why didn't Chelsea go out and get a proper RB this time.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I don't watch Football other than the World Cup and sometimes the Champions League, but I liked watching the game today. It was fun and enjoyable, even though it was long. I think my only complaint (And after reading about past snorefests) was that I wish there was more urgency. This didn't feel like the final game to win the big trophy. It felt like just another football game and could have been more memorable. I think if Terry hadn't missed that shot at the end and Manchester Utd would have lost on Ronaldo's really stupid looking PK (First time I've seen it and man did he wait way too long to fake out the goalie), it would have been.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I wonder how Fergie can top this though I do know he wants one more FA Cup win before he retires and I think he will win that next season. I am not sure about next years PL though am sure Fergie will win at least one more before he retires and next year I think at least the Q/F.

Chelsea is at a crossroads but will come back strong though Arsenal have the potential to be Utd's biggest rivals.

Next bit of football action is ENGLAND vs. USA (next week)

Also I will start EURO 2008 thread on...(read below)!

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

That's not funny. The dramatics in this game should have been: Ronaldo misses and Manchester loses because of him.
The fact that Terry slipped, who was one of the very few likable guys on the pitch there is typical though.
