Should have been 10 down by half time - a dismal performance that echoed their season - but the comeback was great. Luck played a major part when Dudek saved twice to deny Milan. A great win but there is one major problem -
Just like the Manc Scum we will never hear the end of it!
The new ruling is that the goalkeeper can move as much as he wants as long as he does not leave his line and encroach on the penalty taker. Moving laterally along the goal-line is fair game.
A few of the pens saw the Liverpool keeper move off his line and by the letter of the law they should have been taken again. However, we should not forget that by these slight infringments of the law, an English team got to send alot of Italians home crying into their chianti.
Liverpool beat AC Milan on penalties; la dolce vita.
Outstanding performance (second half).
Rather reminded me of my own performance on a career course, OHP operator. The senior instructor warned me at mid-course. 'Camp, if you dont get a grip I'll have to RTU you'.
I passed, grade c+. Fan-fukcing-tastic.
If UEFA won't change their rules then fine. Defend what precisely? It's in their fnerkin' trophy cabinet for keeps now. "We won't bother defending our title, because it's ours forever anway. We're... erm... having a year off, so... bollox!"
Top game by the way. Talk about snatching victory etc. Even if it was a bunch of wheel stealers.
She was apparently glued to the box when it was on.... Both teams in the first half was weak - ACM had the better advantage probably because L'pool was supposedly the underdogs. The speech given at half time must have really woken them up hence their performance - and what a fabulous performance it was!
And once the well-deserved celebrations have died down - the question of defending the title again will be the priority. But if - according to some tabloids - that certain same events happened in 1981 as in 2005 such as the L'pool finishing 5th in PL, winning 17 league games and winning the european cup - were they able to play for the cup again in the next UEFA league despite not being in the first four? (Forgive my ignorance as I was a wee nipper at that time).
Wish the WMF was a scum fan,little bits of her DNA could be still adorning a foreign airfield, whilst Our Glorious Leader could be rejoicing in being at NUFCs 3 FA cup wins in the 1950's, cos he DID see Woor Jackie play before legging it to Barbados from a non existent airport. Pair of Walts
Seems like we weren't the only ones that may have been eager to see the game!:
mad troops barged into Palestinian home
Fri May 27, 2005 11:44 AM BST
HEBRON, West Bank (Reuters) - Israeli soldiers barged into a Palestinian home and commandeered its television room so they could watch a soccer match, an Israeli military source said on Friday after a TV report on the incident.
Footage on Israel's Channel 10 showed broken furniture and windows in the room of the house in the West Bank city of Hebron where the television station said the troops watched Wednesday's Champions League final between AC Milan and Liverpool.
The Palestinian family living in the house said the soldiers caused the damage. The military source confirmed five soldiers entered the dwelling to view the match but said they stayed only for a few minutes and did not break anything.
Nonetheless, the source said, the commander of the squad had been suspended.
"The military takes a severe view of such incidents," the source added.
Palestinian teenager Anan al-Zrayer said he was walking down the street when soldiers asked him if his family had a television set and a satellite dish.
"I said 'yes,' and told them we don't have Israeli channels. (After they entered the house,) I gave them the remote control and they carried out a search. We were kicked into another room," he said.
Another Hebron resident said it was not the first time that soldiers had taken over Palestinian houses to watch television.
Khigaji al-Batch said about two weeks ago, 11 soldiers entered his home and stayed through the night.
"They are using our houses like a cinema," Batch said.
