    I couldn't find a thread about this year's tournament.

    Watched the Juve v Real Madrid game last night, and saw something I've never seen before: The home fans applauding an away goal. Much as I don't like Ronaldo, you have to admire his 2nd goal.



    He has also scored in 10 champions League games in a row.

    The Juve fans applauding and his response was a great moment.

    Don't get the fuss over the goal though, it was a good bicycle kick but nothing that warrants being called "greatest".

    Trevor Sinclair did it better.

    Liverpool are the only league team to have beaten Man City, can they do it again tonight?

    Yes. :)

    So, looks like Bayern, Liverpool, Barca and Real in the semis.

    I loved reading that Rufus Brevett ran like fuck to celebrate with Sinclair as he immediately knew the goal would be on telly for years.

    We've all seem goals that good. But when ronaldo does it the media toss themselves off over it. He's a good footballer but a shit human being. prize tosser playing for a fascist club,

    Agreed, City have scored a ridiculous amount of goals this season.

    What a random thought to have when your team has just scored :D Tbf to Brevett he was fast getting up and down the pitch. I met him a few times at a nightclub i played at, very funny and down to earth fella he was.

    Liverpool know how to stop city playing and will more than likely score at the ethiad. I wonder how much the two beatings Liverpool have given them will affect the city belief.

    Certainly possible citeh will get back into it, but it's different being 3 ahead. In the league you have to go forward when you are 1 or 2 down, not in this.

    The goal should have counted as it came off Milner last.

    Just saw that on the replay; Liverpool finally put a move together to finish the half, should go to bed local time but ssecond half will be worth watching (and a couple of relegation rivals playing in our league).

    True, but I'd argue that City's goal started with a foul on VVD.
