One shot on goal in two games? Chelsea never deserved to win: Mourinho makes a 3 year old look like a wise, old grandpa...when do the diapers with Jose's mug emblazoned across the business end go on sale???

P.S. Surprisingly, Milan look like they have there hands full at the moment. They'll be partying in scouser-land tonight with a Dutch victory!

Bloody hell! PSV have equalised. What a great goal too.

Wish I could see it...just following the text commentary on soccernet. Are PSV as dominating as what I'm reading?

posted by Texan_lost_in_NY at 03:18 PM on May 04, 2005

Yep, they're all over Milan. Oooh, bloody hell that was close. Come on PSV!

What a game! Bad luck PSV.

WOW! Why the hell wasn't this on ESPN2??!

That's a real shame. What a great final it would have been with the two underdogs meeting up. Maybe Liverpool DO have a chance...

It's contracted to Setanta, Star, which costs an additional $11.99 on DirecTV. I can't believe with all the $$$ ESPN have that they don't show all four semi-final games. Bastards.

Amazing that Milan walk away with the trip to Istanbul.

SHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIT. What a sickener for PSV. AC were awful, and only got through due to a bad goalkeeping error. As a complete neutral watching on tv, I was friggin gutted at the end...

Ditto afx. I started off as a neutral (in fact I wanted to watch Newcastle v Fulham but couldn't find a feed). Ended up supporting PSV though. What a shame. So near but yet so far.

Can anyone shed some light on the name of this PSV player...Vennegoor of Hesselink? What does that make me...Hutch of Dallas?

posted by Texan_lost_in_NY at 04:03 PM on May 04, 2005

Yes, yes it does...

read something about that the other day --VofH is the descendent (on his dad's side, i guess) of two powerful farming families, niether of which wanted to give up their name when they united through marriage. my guess is that it should actually be V and H...

Neither Liverpool or Milan deserve to be in the final. Neither do Chelsea mind you......

Milan Baros is awesome!

What, other than win a semi-final, does one have to do to "deserve" a place in the final?

posted by JJ at 04:09 AM on May 06, 2005

I was going to ask the same thing, JJ. If Milan, Liverpool and Chelsea all don't deserve to be in the final, then who does pass the Mathers litmus test to play?

posted by Mr Bismarck at 10:15 AM on May 06, 2005

I would think PSV have to be included as deserving also. I didn't see either leg of their games against Milan but from what I've read, they outplayed them over the 2 legs by a large margin.
