^He's gotten older and he's had some fairly serious injury problems that mean he is not as dominant in midfield as he used to be. The Metro description of the conversation between the BBC's radio commentators on the Man U vs Inter game, however, made it sound like they were writing his entire career off.

Go on, BBC, insult Dennis Bergkamp while you're at it, just to make yourselves a bit more popular with Arsenal fans.

^The funny part is that Man U pulled Rooney's comments from their website. As revelations go, however, this one's up there with "Arsenal fans don't like Ashley Cole very much".

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Hmm for an all english semi-final to happen it would require that no english team draw each other for the quarterfinals and there is only about 0.95% chance of that happening.

4!/(choose(8,2)*choose(6,2)*choose(4,2)*choose(2,2))= 0.0095

You're underestimating Blatter/Platini's abilities. The actual probability is approximately 0%.

We'll probably just have to settle for three. Again.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

My complaint about the MOTD coverage was that there weren't enough closeups of Taggert's miserable face after each Liverpool goal went in. Not enough by far....

My complaint about the MOTD coverage was that there weren't enough replays of Morten Gamst Pedersen throwing himself on the floor with no Arsenal player within two metres of him.

He was in the penalty area and he had the ball too.

^^ I'd have given him a straight red for that. Cheating twat.

Good performance from Arsenal. Arshavin was particularly impressive. As for Bentner, if only his finishing was as good as his positional play.

Arshavin really is a footballing genius, he always seems to know exactly what to do with the ball before he gets it.

Oh, and he's hard too.

Villareal vs Arsenal
M. United vs Porto
Liverpool vs Chelsea
Barcelona vs Bayern

No all-English semi, but likely three again...

I rather like this draw.

The only bad thing about this draw: Manchester United can more or less book their accomodations in Rome already...
