- So, this evenings footie match…
I can’t decide if I should be hoping for a Man Utd win as they are, as am I, English or if I should be hoping for a Barca win as I cannot abide Ronaldo and Ferguson. I appreciate the football played by the team as a whole and really do respect some of the united players but those two? I could happily see them eradicated from the planet.Posted 10 years ago
It’s a tough call this one. In the interests of being able to shout and rant at the telly, I have to choose one team.
Which team are you lot (who are watching it) going for?
ps. my nickname is from school days not due to my allegiance to the team.
I’m a Man City season ticket holder but am also a non bitter blue.
I heard Ferguson claiming they will be the first team to win it back to back.
AARRGGHH!!! You haven’t won it yet and Liverppol and Forest have won it back to back already. It’s changed its name but it’s the same competition you (exceptionally good football manager) plank!Posted 10 years agojimmySubscriber
I’d probably support Utd as they’re British (of sorts). But if they lost I’d care for all of a split second after the whistle. I’d rather either team win and it was an interesting match, (like Liverpool vs Milan 2005/6?) than Utd win it 1-0 scoring after 10 mins.
As long as Everton win on Saturday, I couldn’t give a monkeys tbh.Posted 10 years agogonefishinMember

Well I’m no football fan but even I know that isn’t true. For one thing there are more than just domestic champions involved and it isn’t a straight knock out tournament so in the event that they do win they would become the first team to retain the “Champions League”
Personally I’m just glad that after tonight there won’t be as much football on the TV for a few weeks.Posted 10 years ago

Yes it’s the same tournament, except for the fact that the qualification criteria is different as is the entire structure of the competition. That’s a rather broad definition of the phrase “the same”.
It evolved, it is the same tournament, hence the record book regarding the tournament is still going. Which is why when we won it for the fifth time we got to keep the trophy!Posted 10 years agosteve_b77Member
It’s not the same competition as the old style European Cup, in the new format you’ve got to win through two group stages, then 3 straight knock out stages before you get to the final.
Arguably as there are more teams involved this will make it far harder to actually win the competition, let alon progress at any one stage.
There’s no taking it away from Liverpool in the 70’s / 80’s they were great, however it’s no someone elses turn.
I don’t recall Liverpool or indeed any other British Side having any more than one champions league trophy, they do have European Cups.
What I struggle to believe is that British People would rather a team from another country win the most prestigious club tournament in Eurpoe, even as a life long Man Utd fan, I wanted Liverpool to beat Milan, purely because they are an English side and that’s got to be beter than any European Team winning.Posted 10 years ago
It is still the European Cup, f’k sky sports and their need to brand everything the super-duper-totally-spectacular-roll-up-roll-up cup. It is the European Cup and it will remain the European Cup, and you are right that no-one can take away what was acheived in the 70’s/80’s etc, they can’t, because it is written in the record books, the very record books which are still on going and have never been closed!Posted 10 years ago
If it was Man Utd without Ferguson and Ronaldo though steve_b77, I wouldn’t hesitate in backing them lot in Salford.
What time is kick off? I have to go to the Triffid Centre straight out of work at 6:00pm. That’s another world of pain. A Pauls Boutique hoody for an 11 year old – £65!!! Christ on a bike! It needs changing as she’s bought the wrong size. For that much money, I think they should come and collect it and deliver the correct one.Posted 10 years agoBunnyhopMember
Sorry to go off the subjest abit, in the hairdressers last week I saw this dreadful picture of Ronaldo’s Mum wearing some gear from his new fashion designer range. She’s about 56 and a large lady, it truely wasn’t a good advertisment. Can anyone find the picture, she’s wearing some sort of top and shorts combination, which is more suited to a 15 year old girl?Posted 10 years ago
