For me, Gerrard on the left isn't even a consideration.

It would be either Milner or Joe Cole.

I'd take them over Downing any day of the week.

Thats a clear penalty and probably a red card for trying to take his head off with his elbow.
Yes. It may not have looked as bad from the ref's perspective, but the assistant referee should have a better view.

Gerrard form this season for Liverpool has been the worst in recent memory, his age and injuries are catching up with him. Lennon, Milner, J.Cole and 1 other would be my list...Walcott needs to have a blinder against Mexico and Japan in May to convince though I hate to admit SWP looked good against Egypt.

Speaking of Egypt I was so annoyed with Gerrard because when he loss the ball he was never running back and seemed very slow moving about.

Clearly yes but I'm tempted to say no just to be annoying.

thanks.

Anyway, the referee called the penalty, but the other team's supporters are strongly complaining about it and I'm trying to figure out if I'm insane or they are.

Hypocrisy is a normal behavior for a supporter it's even sometimes an "act of faith" (brrrrr, erk)

Too easy, I'm not going to answer that, this is pure provocation

Yes, that's a definite penalty. The defender has clearly swung an elbow at the opposition player. The defender should be off for that.

I say this not knowing who the teams are here.

Clubs from 6 different countries in the CL quarter finals (if today's matches end as expected). That hasn't happened for a while I think.

And Inter completely deserved to advance; Chelsea seemed almost helpless to me throughout the game.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

^^ Think Sneijder summed it up pretty well; Inter were lucky in the first game, but not last night. A thoroughly deserved win. The special one got the tactics absolutely spot-on.

Elsewhere, a mixed night. We somehow contrive to concede an injury time equaliser to ten men, but on the bright side, another defeat for Forest leaves them 8 points behind WBA and probably out of the automatic promotion race now. Wouldn't want to be going into the playoffs in that sort of form. It's looking more and more like Leicester will probably get that third promotion place.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Last night was a weird game. The team had no energy and neither did the crowd, then they had a goal disallowed and suddenly both team and crowd really perked up! It was a shame to concede the late goal though, we were by far the better team in the last 20/25 minutes. Although they were down to 10 men it was fairly late on and I think we'd have needed more time to make our numerical superiority count. I have to say, Sunu was bloody fantastic. Never stopped running and even tackled back. On last night's performance I really hope we can get him for next season...

Anything other than a slaughter would have been a surprise to me.

Probably when club football is over and the final friendlies before the tournament/when final squad decisions are being made.

I don't think it would hurt to start one now. It probably wouldn't fall off first page, although it may not see too much traffic before then.
