Champions League final thread

Post by Good Golly I'm Olly on Sat 24 May 2014, 12:43 pm

First topic message reminder :

7:45pm. Lisbon. Madrid Derby

Doesn't get much bigger than this!

Benzema and Pepe doubts for Real, appears Costa may make it for Atletico

I can't call it, I hope Atletico do it for not only our resident Madrid fan Kia, but also to top off a fairytale season.



Can't beat a bit of champions league anthem

Great manager, hope he manages in England soon

This. If it wasn't Beckham but lets say, Anderton, it would've been long forgotten about.

I watched it live in a pub and everybody around me pulled Becks up for being a Tinkywinky.

Oh well, Beckham sunk the Argies in 2002 and we all lived happily ever after.

No we didn't! He jumped over the ball in the Brazil QF and led us on our way to more disappointment!!!

I always cringe when folk call Beckham an England legend.

Pretty much spot on so far.

Kept quiet overall tonight due to atleticos superb tactics but managed to keep himself involved.

17 goals in 11 cl games is absolutely ridiculous.

Must say, tough to pick a better national frontline than Di Maria, Messi, Aguerro atm... Could be argued that Messi isn't even the the second best player of the three at the mo'. Argentina must be looking at a win in Brazil.

Until you look at their midfield/defence & reliance of just bombing it up front & hoping something happens. Argies always get found out.

Atletico will rue not closing out the league one week earlier and resting against Barcelona. Also playing Costa made no sense and wasted a replacement. Atletico were out on their feet in extra time. So close but in the end it was Real Madrid trying to attack and Atletico could only hang on. Can't really argue with the result but it was definitely the ugly win that got away.

Still very proud of the team and what they've achieved this year. They'll have nightmares of that Ramos header for years to come but they should be proud of their exploits. Looking forward to the first home game next season to see the reception the fans give the players. One thing Atletico supporters know how to do is get behind their team: win or lose.

Simeone was a Kumquat when he flopped about in 98, regardless whether Beckham should have done it or not. However, I don't blame him for reacting like that tonight, emotions run so high and people sit and talk about managers and players like they're not people. If he'd got his man sausage out and peed on Zizou then maybe he'd deserve criticism (except in the Materazzi household).

Do you kiss his poster each night before mum tucks you in? If you were a 12 year old girl this would be revolting.

Now onto the game, Madrid were the best side in the world from the middle of the season onwards. I am glad for Ancellotti because he is a manager who wins matches without trying to make the contest as boring as humanly possible. I am no Madrid fan but they deserved it this season with the football they played. Barcaleno is a long way away especially with the age of many of the linchpins of their dynasty of the last 8 seasons or so in European football. Madrid beat defending champs and ousted their domestic champions to win it. If they had played this way the whole season they would have won the triple. But hell CL crown and Copa del Rey is nothing to feel bad about. Credit to Atleti they won the league but sadly they will probably lose 2 or 3 stars at the least next year and will struggle to replicate this type of season.

I don't live with my mum, Socal, (good spelling, though) nor do I have a poster of England's goldenboy.

Wish I did though, he's absolutely darling.

Athletico lack pace w/o Costa. Its all good having workhorses like Tiago and Raul Garcia but they had no real outlet when they had the ball which hindered them from getting the all important 2nd goal. HALA MADRID!!!

Simeone questioning the amount of time added was crazy, his side were embarrassing in the second half with the amount of time wasting they did.

Winning La Liga was a fantastic feat, but Simeone for me ruined his reputation last night with his antics and the way he had his team play in the second half.

How Marcelo isn't going to the World Cup is a joke by the way.

I'm not sure what World Cup you will be tuning into, but the one I`m watching, Marcelo will definitely be playing for Brazil.

In my defense, I hadn't looked at the Brazil squad and I heard Neville say he wasn't going last night on Sky Sports.

I watched on ITV. Neville needs to be put to bed sometimes, praise has gone to his head. I do like him as a pundit but sometimes you just need a break from listening to him, bit like Redknapp.

Marcelo was immense last night, if he was dropped by Brazil, Scolari would need shooting.  Laugh

60 minutes is hardly a cameo.

I thought he was probably Real Madrid's best player of the game and his introduction definitely helped them as he offered so much more than Coentrao.

True, but he wasnt incredible. His goal was fine, although bizarre, but he seemed to be symptomatic of Real's problems; getting wide and throwing in balls that Atletico wanted. His goal was icing on the cake, but I don't think Marcelo being there and Coentrao not made any difference to Di Maria, the catalyst and best player on the pitch

I agree about di Maria. Guy has been playing like a kamikaze for three months now. Absolute heartbeat of Real Madrid. Everything positive last night had him there.

Marcelo still played well though, real wingback performance,

Di Maria`s enjoying that role of his now at Madrid. Most opposition focus on nullifying the trio of Ronaldo/Benzema/Bale & it inevitably has given more space/time for Di Maria to be effective, especially this season.

While I thought Di Maria did have a good game, I did feel that he was essentially doing exactly what you accuse Marcelo of doing. His run for Bale's goal was fantastic, but like Marcelo's goal, I think it was only able to pull it off because of Atletico's tiring legs.

I don't think anybody particularly played fantastically well in the game, certainly not any of Madrid's players who won with a big but incredibly flattering scoreline. I would have said that Godin was probably man of the match, over the 90 minutes he was fantastic and unfortunate that he couldn't keep Real Madrid out.

Atletico must have come into the game knackered then, because he had a couple of runs like that throughout the game. Looked dangerous every time he got the ball.

Prob just deleriously happy that he'd scored and Madrid had done la decima.

17 goals in 11 games what little contribution he made to it all.

He had scored 13 by the round of 16 mostly vs Galatasaray/Schalke & Copenhagen. The other 4 were when the games were already wrapped up.

Not exactly that great a contribution despite the amount he scored none that influential.

Tonights games

Juventus vs Olympiakos
Arsenal vs Anderlecht 
Borussia Dortmund vs Galatasaray
Zenit vs Bayer Leverkusen
Basel vs Ludogorets
Real Madrid vs Liverpool
Malmo FF vs Athletico Madrid
Benfica vs Monaco

A bad result for Juve and they could be on the brink of being knocked out, BVB,Arsenal,Leverkusen and Real Madrid all able to qualify tonight.
