I agree, we missed someone on the front of our attack. But I'm not so sure for Scholes, I prefered to see Anderson, a warrior capable of figthing for 90 minutes.

We should have won this game, we created so much oppurtunities in the first half, but we were too sloppy in the decisive area. Hopefully it will be a different game at home.

And I watched Lyon - Barcelona too, it was really intense. Lyon could have won the game if they were more realistic. Benzema prooved he is a tremendous young talent and in this particular game he was so much better than Etoo and Henry. And Lloris is definitely a top goalkeeper though he is still pretty young. A very good game but it will be another story at Nou Camp.

I thought Lyon had Barca tonight! :(

Totally agree, the made a great game and diserved a little more agains a really bad Bar?a who, IMO, got to nervous after Lyons scored.

best thing is the next game is home and Iniesta will be back, with him and Xavi in the middle, things should be quite better

Today games:

Arsenal should have wasted Roma, geez it should have been 5 or 6 nill.

If Eduardo was playing he would had got 6 himself.

He should be back for the return.

Man utd should have won that match. In the second half Park really wasn't used as much. Him and Ronaldo were either more on the wing thus leaving Berbie on his own with no support from the midfield.

The midfield was set up to only move the ball about, this worked most of the time in the first half but was boring in the second.

Should have started rooney in the second half, his speed and chasing down could have pegged Inter back.

2025: "Here is an interesting fact for you all, Liverpool actually have more Spanish players in their starting line-up than Real Madrid."

Great results for the British clubs :D well for at least 3 of them.. and a good result for Man U.. they are in the weakest position of the 4 I'd say.. coz if Inter scores once or twice they are in deep trouble.. Arsenal - Chelsi need one goal in the return match and then Roma/Juve will need 3.. so great position to be in.. and 'Pool got the crucial away goal.. they just need a cleansheet now.. and they(pundits.. especially Italians) were saying EPL teams will struggle :woot:

The PL once again proving its the best league in the world!

Watching the Arsenal-Roma replay now on Super Sports.. We should've destroyed Roma.. Eboue, Eboue, Eboue.. :rofl: what was that? :p

oh and the goal of knock-out stage so far by Juninho :o What a strike!

Not really. I think overall we controlled the game. Madrid started well, but they never really had a clear cut chance did they?

They have something we don't though, whenever they go forward they go forward with purpose and it scares the crap out of me...but when we attack you never feel as if we are going to score (and that is Liverpool's greatest weakness).

It was a massive, massive result though for us and really puts us in a strong position.

pool are the luckiest team in the world :angry:

In the Champions League we have beaten Juventus, Milan, Inter, Arsenal, Barcelona, Real Madrid and Chelsea (twice) all in the recent years. Hardly luck?

Stop obsessing over us (just look at your sig) and go and support your own team. Its embarrassing.

i totally agree with that, and it's the first time i thought of it like that. It's like everytime i watch the boys play unless gerrard and torress are leading the charge they never seem to scare the opposing defenders when they are going in for the attack. Real came in everytime looking mean and definitely had 'pool shuffling in their own end a couple of times. P?p? made some huge saves!

2nd leg. in Anfield should be hell of a game, i hope Liverpool are more open, i hope they dont park a bus infront of their goal.

Gerrard & Torres are big for you guys, but for me Alonso & Maschareno are the guys you will need most in the 2nd leg.

Maschareno is just a beast, how i wish we could have him, i'd give our 3 Argentines for your 1.

UCL is wide open at this stage..

I can see Man U going out to Mourinho.. especially if Crespo starts with Zlatan.. so Rooney MUST start with Tevez..

Arsenal and Chelsea are well placed.. need just one goal each in second leg and Roma/Juve will be in deep ****.. needing 2 goals to go to extra time and 3 to win :p Great news for us is that Walcott and Eduardo will be available for that leg.. so more fire power for us..

Liverpool/Madrid is anyone's game.. I do believe Madrid will attack and score.. so 'Pool MUST score first if possible and not sit back.. what's the situation with Torres? Will he be back?

Barca are better placed in thier tie with Lyon.. though anything can happen.. especially seeing how Kun Aguero sunk them.. Benzima can do the same.. but more likely a Barca win there..

Atletico/Porto wide open.. but Atletico can go out.. maybe even on away goals that they couldn't stop..

Villareal will beat Panathanikos and go through..

and Munich is through already.

All in all exciting games coming up..

Oh and gregbob.. your comments were so childish that I didn't even wanted to take time out to reply.. but as I had time now and was writing already.. I'll tell you just one thing.. the reason you said what you said is coz you are not in England or Europe for that matter.. you see UCL as just another tournament.. UCL is more than abt supporting your club.. its abt your league's style of football versus the style of rest of Europe.. we support all British clubs in UCL.. even if Arsenal loses (hopefully never this year :p).. we hope an EPL or a Scottish team(I know.. knocked out.. but just making a point here) lifts the trophy.. that's why when United and Chelsea played in Moscow.. made us all proud in England.. that's why we supported Liverpool twice in the final even if we were not fans of them.. and thats why we expected support from across England when we took on Barca some years back.. coz we have the best league in the world ;)

and abt revenge.. for what? jeez.. lighten up man.. its a game.. "and take Roma all the way".. even beat Chelsea in the process? or are you expecting Chelsea to lose the next leg? Are you still a Chelsea supporter? or is it gone with your signature and now you support Roma?

Anyways.. I'm hoping for all English teams in semis :p then we can get down to what you already said.. oh and where's Rappy? :p

I've made it pretty clear for the last 4 years that I support both Chelsea and Roma equally. As for my comments, I am just joking around to see what type of conversion comes about.

I agree with you though, I'd like to see an all English team semifinal but highly doubt it.

To all my Chelsea haters, truce? Its alright be cool my babies (Conan reference).

I don't really agree with that. Did any Man Utd fan support Liverpool when we last won the European Cup? No, it was probably the worst day of their life. I hope every English team crashes and burns in the Champions League other than Liverpool.

As for Torres, I think he should be back...but even if he is he won't be at his sharpest. I'm not sure how the match will go next Tuesday for us but I will be ****ed in the pub singing and supporting my team. Football at its finest.

So, if I follow your argument it was the worst day of your life last year when we won the cup. Glad to heat that... :pinch:

Sorry, but I must disagree with that. I don't hate Liverpool, really. It's just that I don't frakking care, cause they are no longer a threat for us anymore. And this goes for a long time now.

I don't know when you started watching football, but obviously the circumstances around Istanbul were a lot different to how you won ;)

You need to stop being so ignorant and disrespectful. We are no threat to you? We beat you the last time we played you. We have been in two Champions League Final's and one Semi Final in the last four years, and we are well on course again. Maybe you should take a look at your record in the biggest club competition in the world.

When Liverpool played Real Madrid, the two clubs on the pitch had won the European Cup 14 times between them. You and Inter have won it 5 times between you, the same amount we have won on our own.

I probably know more Man Utd history than you do. This patch where we have not won the league for 19 years is something a lot of people go on about, but all clubs go through patches like this, even look back and you will see that Man Utd went something like 28 years without winning the title at a time when you were in a similar position to us now.

Considering we have 'not been a threat to you for a long time now': 18/5...we are still on our perch.
