    My thoughts are the same. You may as well open the thread now.

    No Champions League games against lesser teams are easy, you should know that considering some of your group stage games.

    Nope, they'll get Madrid, beat them, then Milan, beat them and in the final beat Barca 1-0.

    Like I said my friends, accept it already, you'll be fully prepared for when it happens that way. Only helping my fellow caftards out, don't want a similar suicide epidemic that happened when Liverpool fluked the CL, we have to be prepared for any kind of cataclysm this time.

    Ha. Is the 2005 CL Final thread still available on here? That would be a funny read.

    Rumour has it Roman was spotted writing out a cheque to FIFA right after he'd written out the one for the job-lot of plastic flags and paying the several thousand stooges strategically placed in the stands tonight

    Perhaps so, the same might be said for them playing some Europa League sides as well.

    Great result and an excellent performance to overturn a tough tie against a very dangerous and in-form team. No chance to win the whole thing, I'm afraid, but hopefully this gives us a much needed confidence going into the last stretch of games in a fight for the fourth spot in the PL.

    Has anyone got the final result of Liverpool in Amsterdam? Those highlights would make for an interesting viewing.

    Now that doesn't actually make sense, does it?

    It is very interesting how there has been a significant upswing in the performances of Chelsea and Arsenal recently whilst Tottenham start to lose a few.

    That clearance by Cole in the first leg was probably what won it for them in the two legs.

    Di Matteo was going on around hugging and jumping on players when they weren't even remotely interested to celebrate with him with Drogba in particular :lol: Kinda embarassing for him really, he's trying too hard

    pity you had to spoil your previous post with a dipper/bitter attempt at trying to do the perennial champs down. Blips are a fact of life, even for serial champs. Pretenders with a lottery win like you and the Berties who'd otherwise be battling it out with Bolton and West Ham, jump at every chance to enjoy one blips. See you in May.

    It was cringe when he tried to jump into Drogba's arms but Drogba made no attempt to hold him up so he tried again to wrap his legs around him. It Drogbe wasn't having it, so he ended up doing that jumping up and down hug.

    I like Di Matteo though. I hope this job allows him to get a job where he won't be treated like dirt.

    My thoughts exactly. I couldn't quite bring myself to cheer them on but it's a very good result for United. Hopefully they win their FA Cup tie at the weekend as well and we beat Wolves. Massive pressure on City then and the chavs can get something at the Ethiad.

    Then they can go back to being shite again :D

    Torres was probably hoping they'd go out so he'd be part of the clearout

    I went back to that timeframe a few months ago. It was hilarious. I think GB closed the thread after they came back, then banned some Liverpool fans :lol:

    He really loves the club though, so it's natural he would be a) really excited cause of the win and b) even more excited because the win came under his management ergo plus points for him.

    What a shit three days of watching football. We see a team making fun of one that's in the CL instead of us. Chelsea got through. Liverpool had no problems and Stevie got a hat trick. Then this atrocious performance that finally put us out of our misery. All the sings point to a City win now. That wouldn't bother me that much though. Give them more games whilst we have none. If they manage to win the thing and we get the league then go ahead and take it.

    I want City out. I don't want them to be able to use still being in Europe as an excuse when we win the league and I sure as hell don't want them winning the competition.
