    ^^^^Hilarious!^^^^^

    I did not watch the 1st half. Real is supposed to have dominated the 1st half. I watched the 2nd half & the 2 Extra Time periods. Barca dominated most of the time, but left a few gaps in the back in ET as they tried to push for the winning goal. Real found those gaps and was able to capitalize on one toward the end of the 1st ET. They held on in the 2nd ET to win the Cup. The part I watched was rough, high paced and very entertaining.

    For the record: IMO, Real Madrid deserved the win.

    Barca now has the 2 stage Champion's League semi final to extract their revenge at Real taking one part of the treble away from them. These games should be fun to watch.

    Fernando Torres has finally scored for Chelsea in their 3-0 win over West Ham as the Hammers face relegation. Liverpool in the meantime won 5-0 over Birmingham City as that club seems to be finally getting it's act together. My boys are 6 point clear of 2nd place Chelsea with four more games to go. I just also want to express my surprise the Schalke is currently sitting in 10th place in the Bundesliga despite being in the final four int he CL. Oh yeah and Gatafe is now Gatafe team Dubai. :p

    May be British newspapers should focus on BNP and EDL action in UK than look to east.

    Halifax race protest turns ugly. Please stop ur selective reading BUZZ, each country has its own issues with racism, some have had it for years, and institutionalised racism into its social set up (to make it almost looks that it is no longer an issue). Some other emerging economies, during this hard economic period are finding out realities about society(hidden racist face).

    Did anyone else watch the Shalke vs ManU game? "Grandad" scored, so did Rooney!

    In a game that could have been 2:0 at the half. Man U totally dominated. It was only a matter of time until they scored.

    I think Buzz has at least half of the Final's equation figured out. I can't see Man U not advancing after this performance. Tomorrow we'll see if "the special one" is really all that special....:D

    NJL (..if he pulls off an upset of Barcelona, he will be very special, indeed...;)...)

    He ain't THAT special...;)

    Lionel Messi 2 v Real Madrid 0.

    That, and the fact that Barca had the ball for over 70% of the game, tells you most of what you need to know about this match. The thing that is missing is that Real defender/midfielder Pepe was red carded in the 65th minute for an aggressive tackle on Barca's Dani Alves. Pepe's primary job over the last 3 games with Barca has been to be Lionel Messi's shadow. He did a great job of it, too. Lionel did not score any goals for 2 1/2 games with Pepe defending him. Messi scored both goals after the red card. The last one an individual classic where he ran through the Real defenders like they were statues.

    Now Barcelona goes home to Camp Nou with a 2 away goal advantage and Real Madrid will be missing the reason Mr Messi went 2 1/2 games scorless. It looks like a Manchester United v Barcelona final at Wembley Stadium next month....:)

    NJL (...and I'm not sure Man U can stop Barca's attack. We'll see shortly....:D...)

    Man U's reserve team won 4-1 for a 6-1 aggregate over 2 games. They'll get to play Barca on the 28th of May. If They can stifle Messi they might win. If they can't, they won't.

    Charlie Adam's tackle on Gareth Bale...Ouch! I sure hope that leg's not broken! I didn't post a link to the photo 'cause it's easy to find and pretty gruesome. :( Charlie Adam is one of my favourite players but this tackle was over the top...

    Adam actually stayed in the game after this! We'll see if the FA gives him some time off for this. Accidental or not it was a very bad challenge.

    Prognosis for Bale is unknown. There may be ligament damage. It seems he is out for this season and, if any ligament damage, he'll miss some of next season, too. Sad, Bale is one of the best young players in the EPL and a huge reason that Spurs went so deep into the Champions League this season.

    Man Un vs Chelsea in a direct battle for the title in EPL. Chicharito scored after 49 seconds of game. :eek:
    Buzz, I hope you are watching this. :D

    Good game...so ManU for sure gets the title now?

    I've got a question for folks who live in the Uk. I read something to the effect "Bale will go for a scan on Monday..." however he injured his leg pretty badly on Saturday. Where I live, an elite athlete goes for scan/medical treatment immediately after injury. Is it different in the UK, or is it a stalling tacting meaning basically "I don't want to tell you right now?" I've wondered about this before with other players...

    They need 1 point - 1 tie/draw - from the 2 games they have remaining on their schedule - AWAY at Blackburn Rovers next W/E and finish at home against Blackpool the following Sunday. All things considered, I'd say that they'll have their 19th - a record number, BTW - title in the bag by season's end...;)

    And, I thought Chicharito scored on 37 seconds...:D

    NJL (...not that those few seconds matter all that much....Chelsea was out of it from that moment on...that goal is one of the biggest shocks of the EPL season....)

    :D Entirely possible, I think when I looked at the clock he was already celebrating. I was finishing up some things at the computer, figuring I wouldn't miss much the first minutes and then all of a sudden...BAM!
    But you're right about Chelsea looking totally unprepaired. If it wasn't for this early goal, it could've been a whole different game...Anyway, congrats to ManU, a totally deserved title. And my homeboy Berbatov is still the top scorer of EPL! :cheer2: (although it's probably his last season there, considering how well Chicharito and Park are doing)
