    On a different note, it appears that Grant is living up to people's expectations by being completely out-managed in the Carling Cup final.

    I wish I could see this match. I don't really know either manager but I'd love to see Spurs take it. Just so that Chelsea loses. I want to see Abromovich get that pissy look on his face when his hundreds of millions of pounds can't buy him everything he wants.

    this pic is safe and doesn't show too much.
    BTW, this is the injury happening. Taylor goes recklessly .. and the rest is history.

    you are not allowed to go in with your cleats up like that, period. it doesn't matter if you go in 'hard' or not, or if you go in high or low. when you go in cleats first, you are always putting the other player at high risk for injury, and whether you touch him or not, it's a red. (think ronaldinho's red against england.)

    the commentators i've heard say stupid things like he went in hard or he went in high. taylor's own manager suggested it was only worth a yellow. it's as if no one knows the laws of the game.

    Call me picky but they wouldn't be playing football if they led with any other part of their body when they tackled....

    What do you expect him to say? It's his own manager

    I was referring to Benecios's comment about the Italians playing shit in Europe.

    I said INTER playing shit in Europe not "the Italians". When did Inter last win the Champions League/European Cup?? I will tell you,1965!

    Its good to see that Mr Magoo has retracted his earlier comments about Taylor never being allowed to play again. The guy has a very short memory,it was only seven days ago when Eboue tried cutting Evra in half and then Flamini and Hoyte were chasing Nani round the pitch with studs flying everywhere. But then it was OK to try and finish someone's career because he was "showboating".
    And as for Gallas' behaviour at the end of the game,completely bizarre!!

    No worries. I read that first post and just thought "What's he talking about? Didn't AC Milan win Euro last year? Sheesh." Inter? Well, Inter's another matter.

    Unless your comment was tongue in cheek, there is a big difference between tackling cleats up or down.

    That Milan Team is past its best, Ancelotti will be gone at the end of the season and they´ll work on rebuilding the team.

    You care about Arsenal? United will be back on top in a couple of weeks time and the title will be ours again.

    First post in an american forum about football, that's great!

    Looks like Roma is through. Vicunic just gave them 2-1. I'm a bit disappointed for RM as I have a soft-spot in my heart for them after their years of being roundly denounced because of the Galacticos dire performances.

    Porto is up right now even though they're a man down.

    Chelsea strolled through. Thankfully Roma ousted Real.

    The Arsenal match was still the highlight though.

    This is shaping up to be one of the stories of the summer silly season.

    Ancelotti gets the arse, potentially Rijkaard too, at Barca. He's a former Milanista, sooooo..... but wait, it's Jose, "Il Speciale Uno" Mourinho coming to stake his claim on Berlusconi's lira!

    Please forgive my abominable Italian. ;]
