At least I have this:

Spurs fell apart right when Harry was being courted for the England job. It fucked their season up.

Yep. Fucking shame. Whenever scandal hits spurs, form drops bad. At some times it was practically comical. Modric will be long gone. I expect so will Bale. All I see is £££££££ in our future lol

I am fine with the game as-is, but I don't object to the golden goal as an alternative. Why was that dropped?

Blatter would never have brought this up if Bayern had won the penalty shootout.

No he wouldn't but that doesn't mean it shouldn't be changed.

According to Wiki it was because the timing of the goal within the 30 mins extra time was important and also that if the wind blew in one direction it could favour one team and it stopped attacking play because they wanted to not concede more than they wanted to score (which is why play till you score should work - someone has to score). Maybe take off a player every few minutes instead of allowing subs, more space means more attacking play and more chances of a goal.

Well I wouldn't have booed him unless I wanted him to leave the club and never play for them again.
I can understand sometimes booing players on your own team if they are being obviously lazy, don't care and do not give the team their all. Lack of effort is inexcusable. But that is not the case with Robben. He worked hard for Bayern during the game, and I understand he did a lot to get them in the final to begin with. He seems personally tormented by the loss.
I have always had somewhat positive thoughts towards Bayern, but I am starting to revise that. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I did not like the sense of entitlement from the club or fans. "Unser Pokal' was just a small part of the smug, premature victory lap. The booing of Robben further reflects badly on them.
Robben, you can come back to Chelsea if you would like.

glad to hear that.

imo, robben is quite overrated. he already passed the peak...

Nationalism keeps people from enjoying the well played game. Would much prefer to watch the current German side rather than say Italy.

.

well, it's the history between the both nations. unfortunately austria couldn't keep up with the glory of the past for one reason or another and the germans have nothing bout mockery for that. although we helped them in the WC 1982 - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/West_Germany_1%E2%80%930_Austria_%281982_FIFA_World_Cup%29

can you name one player who stands out from their side?

Actually when the USA are playing Mexico , nearly a third of the US population is supporting the latter.
