    [EU] Champions League 2007/2008

    Football is so ugly nowadays...I can barely remember a season I watched so little of it. (Before Jeeks steps in - this wasn't down to Milan's failure!) It's ironic as tonight's game had no relevance on my and it has become normal for me not to watch football (particularly those between top...

    [EU] Champions League 2007/2008

    Dudek hardly behaved admirably in Istanbul. But I agree it's a definite lack of class when a goalkeeper tries to get an edge against a penalty-taker. Especially when this is perhaps the biggest match a player can play in and for it to be decided on penalties. Hahaha...my thoughts on this...

    [EU] Champions League 2007/2008

    Was the 'boring-so-obviously-destined-for-penalties' final that we got. The only surprise being goals were actually scored! I say 'goals' but how that can give the description to a move where a full-back takes a throw-in which is won by your star centre-forward not much further than the half way...

    Good to see this thread still alive and kicking. :thumbs: I miss you guys too...hard to believe it is nearly a year since I last posted in this thread. I'd post here more often if I was still remotely in touch with what was happening in football. Last time I checked in here was to see if a...

    [EU] Champions League 06/07

    Maybe this was posted on the forums elsewhere when it was a news story (and I aplogise if it was) but Valdano's words after the Liverpool SF triumph over Chelsea were the most accurate of modern day football and it's problems I've heard for some time. Especially considering he was speaking as a...

    [EU] Champions League 06/07

    I placed mine as 3-0 HT correct score. :agree: How are you? Been a long time since I logged in to this place. I tried searching for a long (painful) post I remember writing the day after Istanbul - but it has now been cut from the forum :D. I also remember how we argued over Maradona's...

    [EU] Champions League 06/07

    I also respect teams who play good football and to win. Barcelona are only one team who play in this style and it grates with many other supporters when Barca (their fans in particular) seem to believe theirs is somehow more pure. Your analysis of last year's Champions League is exactly why...

    AH = Asian Handicap. So in this case it's Milan starting at -1/2 a goal which is exactly the same as a normal bet on Milan winning. The reason I took this bet is because it is marginally bigger than the Milan price on the 1X2 market. Even though it has the same winning outcome markets are...
