Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

This is ridiculous. Man Utd aren't even PLAYING. I'm no Man Utd fan but they are letting the Barca primadonnas have all the possession and space they want. Don't they remember how Liverpool won in Istanbul? Contest EVERY ball. TACKLE. Get the opposition off their game plan. Barcelona are NOTHING if you get in their face -- Chelsea proved that. It makes you wonder if the Scum players are just nervous, intimidated, frustrated or what?

What exactly did Chelsea prove aside from that it's possible make all viewers fall asleep by playing a cowardly destrctive tactic without a shot on the goal for 180 minutes against Barcelona?

And "primadonna"? Who's the one wearing pretty red high heels on the field?


eta: haha, Messi with a header!

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

They're primadonnas because they fall when someone breathes on them and expect free kicks like they get in Spain.

But they've won this game. Fair play to them.

And Ronaldo doesn't? Oh please. I haven't seen an English team play "British" football in quite a while.

Despite all his talent, Ronaldo is definitely a whiny little bitch.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I never said Ronaldo doesn't. He does. As does Drogba. But look at Puyol just a second ago....looked at the ref first, then proceeded to wail, hold his head, and roll around. Puyol, for crying out loud, a supposed hard-nosed defender.

Yeah, I hate that too, I wish the referees had the balls to be more consistent in showing yellow cards for dives.

Most have players have been doing crap like that for as long as I can remember. It's nothing new and I actually find it quite entertaining. Not the dives themselves, but the bad acting after a supposed foul.

Hm, I don't know, it's certainly been happening since I started watching football, but the football I usually watch is crap; I don't remember all that stuff on the highest level until more recently. But I agree, when you don't have a horse in the race it's funny to watch.

This game is over. There will be no comeback like 1999 or 2005.

Oh please. Get up, Messi.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

This is the worst I've seen Manchester play this year. Very sloppy.

The commentators are using the word "brilliant" for Barcelona but hyperbole is endemic when people talk about them. I'd describe them as "efficient" on the night more than anything else. They had a gameplan and nothing happened to divert them from it. Tactically very well done to unseat a team as good on the counter-attack as Man Utd.

One thing I like about Barcelona winning is, that again no club managed to defend that title. I don't really like the Champions League (btw. shouldn't there be an apostrophe somewhere?) - that shows how competitive modern football is.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

The ONLY thing that's good about this in my opinion is that Thierry Henry finally gets a CL winner's medal.

But good point about competitiveness though. Bad thing is, now we have to deal with the dual preening of Platini and Guardiola.

Convincing victory. Very good. Man U weren't at the races.
