Your from Milan and support Juventus?

Your bravery is supported.

Lol, it looks strange, but many people in Milan supports Juventus... i'd say.. 20 %


Actually thinking about it, its not that strange. In London more football fans support Manchester UTD (the most successful club of recent years) than any other club.

So, it's a common thing :D

btw  i think that Premiere League is the best Football League in europe today, my favourite team is Sunderland, but someone have to explain me how Liverpool lost against Fiorentina in CL.




Well the weather was bad on that day, (insert another random excuse here) Liverpool had there whole team injured and the football wasn't the same type as the premiership.


On a serious note, Liverpool were outplayed on that day. I think though, and many would agree Liverpool are a better team than Florientina. This is what makes football special, Liverpool beat ManUTD one week lose to Fulham the next. Teams form varies throughout a season, it happens to all teams ManUTD Chelsea Liverpool. You name the team and their form will dip at some point. Class always comes through hence the top leagues always finish with the same names.

I remember a player(Luis Jimenez) once said when he was transfered from Inter to West Ham that in the premier league you have a lot more space to play and defenders dont put as much pressure as in Serie A but its way faster than serie A.



I don't know if any of you follow Asian footy but I thought this was amusing:

The Asian Champions League Final match used to be played over two legs home and away for obvious reasons but this season they decided to hold a UEFA CL style one game final at a neutral ground. They chose Tokyo.

The final two teams are Al Ittihad of Jeddah,Saudi Arabia and Pohang Steelers of Pohang, South Korea.

Obviously, the AFC were hoping for a Japanese team to make the final (as the two last ACL had been won by Japanese sides) but this could have ended in disaster if Pohang Steelers lost to their semi-final opponents, Qatari side Umm Salal. Imagine this: A Saudi team and a Qatari team playing a match in Tokyo. I doubt the attendance would even crack 100 people!

This is bad for Ittihad fans. They have a round trip of 12'000 miles to make. For reference, ManU fans can fly to rome and back 6 times and still have miles to spare.




Fuck you AFC. :(

Lol, I understand it in the CL, countries are very close to each other and teams are more well known so even if you dont support any I would go and watch Real Madrid vs Man U for example if it were in my city. That was ridiculous.



Owen seriously needs to learn how to finish....



wowser

man u defence at it again... I had 2-1... but not that way around...



I'm not really here!

I cannot believe how terrible the Utd defense is right now. Both the goals, especially the second one was ball watching.

However, this is something I have always said (maybe not on this forum) Russian teams play very sexy and attractive one touch passing football and that is shown in the game....

Akenfaev (spelling?) looks solid and if the rumors are true abotu him coming to Utd next year I wouldn't mind one bit.



wow Milan - Real Madrid is an awesome match...
