I cannot for the life of me figure out why in the most important match for 5 years we played one of our worst games this year. I mean heeellooooo, it's Milan we're talking about, it's Ancelotti. Are they unbeatable? By no means, we already whipped them once this year. The lineup is weird, with Montero on the left, we play really really bad, it's amazing how they threatened us, us with our "excellent" defence. One goal cancelled, Buffon saving on Inzaghi and several other chances when Milan got really close. Meanwhile we answered that with nothing. Not one threatening attack from normal play (maybe except Trez' header right at the start). "All" our chances were weird incidents, the kind that when you score people say you were lucky. So we're playing the 3rd best club (barely, Lazio almost took their spot) in Italy, we know them really well, we've just won the league again, our team seems to be rather in form, meanwhile Sheva and Pippo haven't scored for a while and Milan has won once in their last 6 CL games. No, I just won't accept that it's all Nedved, we made the final dammit! If you mean to tell me that without the Czech this is all we got, I just don't believe it. No, Lippi screwed up again. Bad. And I can't figure out why this is happening. We played a horrible game. Milan weren't too impressive but they did okay. We just waited for the pens most of those 120 minutes. Yes, anti-football. In the CL with Lippi as our coach and only player missing from the lineup. Unbelievable.
