I <3 Ramos

Correction to the headline. Both ties WERE balanced on a razor's edge. Real are going to the final.
 
2014-04-29 03:19:15 PM  
Out of all the people you could've mentioned as Real's savior in Munich, I'd have laughed if you'd told me "Ramos" before today.
 
2014-04-29 03:19:41 PM  
Man, didn't know about Tito Vilanova until today.

Quite an emotional dedication by Messi the other day for the winning goal against Villarreal.
 
2014-04-29 03:20:29 PM  
Oh thank god. Someone start looking for the Rondaldo tears from ~20 min.

Is this one already over? 3-0, two of which are away goals....

It was sitting in the queue for a while before getting greened.

Soccer/association football newbie here, what's the offsides rule on corner kicks?

Don't think there is one on corners, since the ball is coming from the edge of the pitch.

CRISTIAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANO. BREAKS THE RECORD AND BAYERN.

Hey  marius2, where's your fabled Crynaldo?

I wonder how bad Bayern would have to lose to get Pep sacked. It seems like some of the club leadership are already unhappy with his playing style.
 
2014-04-29 03:25:52 PM  
I was hoping for a entertaining match to keep me entertained in the last two hours of work, but I'm guessing that ain't happening.

Beckenbauer, I think, was the one most critical of the performance in Madrid.

If this was the group stage, I would have already switched to something else.

Damn...

Alonso is out of the final due to suspension.

Alright, one half of the all Madrid final I want is set.  Now for chelsea to go down in flames tomorrow.

For winning the league in record time? Making the final of the DFB Pokal and the semi finals of the CL? That would be pretty dumb. He hasn't had time to make his impact, and yet he's winning.

Like what Moyes should have been.
 
2014-04-29 03:31:15 PM  
Okay, that's the height of irony. Robben dragging someone up because they're milking contact.

Since this game is over already, here is something for discussion:  http://www.bbc.com/sport/0/football/27198306

Apparently City and PSG are in breach of the Financial Fair Play Rules, but will most likely get a slap on the wrist.  From the article:

City must now decide whether to accept the offer made to them or try to negotiate a lesser punishment, which varies from a reprimand to a fine or European squad restrictions next term.

The most powerful sanction, that of being excluded from European competition, is not expected to be implemented.

Uefa president Michel Platini said recently he did not think any of the clubs who breached rules would be liable to exclusion from European competition next season.

So basically do whatever you want and you'll get a fine.  So much for fair play.
 
2014-04-29 03:33:54 PM  
I wonder if Tito's death effected Guardiola's preparations for this match. They were best friends since playing together in Barca's youth academy and Tito was his right hand man from his very first managerial appointment with Barca B. Losing someone that close would make focusing on anything else pretty difficult for awhile.
 
2014-04-29 03:34:54 PM  
Come on Di Maria, you're better than that.  I want Madrid to win this game, but geezus do they difficult to cheer for them when they do this bullshiat.

I just wonder why they're not implementing the competition ban. Citeh was spending ridiculously. It could have been even more if Isco had chosen them instead of Real.

You'd hope his players would try to cheer him up with an inspiring performance, like Barcelona did in Villarreal. Alas, it was not to be.

Every one outside of Dortmund in the Bundesliga is a joke, though. Look at how bad the other clubs get crushed in Europe every year. The real test for Bayern is the CL, and they have so far struggled against a bad Man United and are now getting destroyed by Real.

Villarreal might have the worst fans in La Liga this season. First the tear gas against Celta, now the banana to Alves.

Yeah, I thought that was funny. You spend too much money, so our punishment is to make you spend more money.

It would be a joke to give them a fine. Match bans are the only way.

What's worse, clubs from Spain who can't handle their money plus a few token teams from Eastern Europe will be made examples of and probably will get the match bans in Europe.

Also, I don't want to say "I told you so" but I told you so.

In today's episode of why the rules don't apply to those at the top: Barcelona's transfer ban put on hold by FIFA pending appeal. Stay tuned to learn why Financial Fair Play doesn't apply to English clubs with billionaire owners

As much as I'd enjoy Jose crying like a biatch if Atletico beat them, Ancellotti, CR7 and Bale putting a foot in Chelsea's ass at the final would please me greatly.

A Chelsea-Real final would be unwatchable. Real would be waiting for Chelsea to attack so they could counter, and Chelsea would only be sending Torres or Eto'o forward with no one to pass to while the other 10 players stayed camped in the 18 yard box.

Clubs are still adjusting. I want FFP to be implemented as much as anybody, but I understand holding back on the nuclear option the very first year it's being implemented. Let it tighten like a noose.

Being an admitted bandwagon Barca fan (born in US..sorry), I have no real hatred for Real, and I enjoy watching them play often.  Rinaldo has really impressed me this year, he's really upped his game.

They used to simply thug it up vs Barca because they couldn't hang with them, but the tables have turned as Barca has really lost their edge.

Or not.

Country Coefficients 2013/14

If they send 7 teams and only two show up, their coefficient would drop very fast

Bayern can't catch a break today. And if they did, it would probably be to the leg of one of their best players. Can't believe Kroos missed that.

Madrid releases the Isco
 
2014-04-29 04:26:45 PM  
And to think that the only reason Real are in this position is because Mkhitaryan couldn't hit the ground if he fell out of a tree. Now the pundits will be crowning them the best team in Europe.

As for the support, I didn't really expect early departures. Schalke were singing their lungs out while getting destroyed. Best crowd I've seen since the Irish funeral singing at Euro 2012.
