Arsenal vs Barca is a repeat of the 2006 final
Manchester United vs Bayern Munich is a repeat of the 1999 final.

I'm going for United Barca Final with United getting revenge for last season........

Oooh thinking Ronnie vs Messi is a close one in my opinion. Both very talented, both very quick, Both very very good. Ronaldo has the upper hand with Dead Ball situations, Strength & Vision. Messi has the upper hand with Pace, Trickery & making space.

On Saturday it's Barcelona vs Real Madrid, Messi vs Ronaldo Shocked Where will you be? Suspect

Shocked Shocked Damn! You don't like Ronnie do you? Laughing

Falling over & conning the ref was something he did in his first 3 seasons. After that he didn't do it so much & teams would target him, which is why he then spent so much time in the gym beefing himself up. The only way some defenders could stop Ronaldo was to foul him which is what happened......
Yes, United are a better team without him, but it's the same as United were a better team without Cantona. United play better when everything doesn't go through one man which was the case with both Cantona & Ronaldo.
42 goals from 60 apperences in one season is nothing to be sniffed at. Torres hasn't achieved that for Liverpool & he IS thier main striker so it can't be that easy if aruguably one of the best strikers in the game can't match it........ Also deadball situations are not that easy and Ronaldo has scored many blistering goals from open play. I can think of a certain Porto game...... And if Deadball situations were that easy then Gerrard & Torres should have more goals between them than they do.......

Don't hate a great. Messi is undoubtedly a great player, but Ronaldo is also undoubtedly a great player. I don't think people in the business would've advised shelling out £80 million if he was just a con artist & dead ball specialist. Afterall, Beckham only went for £25 million & he wasn't much more than a deadball artist........ Dunno Wink

Oh, and that 42 goal season looked a bit like this:

Penalties = 6
Free Kicks = 5
Goals from Open Play = 31

What!!!?? Shocked rofl Every player who gets subbed sulks. No player wants to get subbed & if the player doesn't sulk he clearly doesn't want to play enough. Managers WANT their players to sulk f they get subbed. Look at Gerrard’s face the other day when Torres got subbed. Showing real respect for the manager there Rolling Eyes Players do it all the time.

As for being greedy, yes, if you want to be a goalscorer you need to be selfish. It's the first rule of scoring goals. Heskey is the most Unselfish player I have ever seen & his pathetic Goals record proves that fact. Every striker is Selfish & I've seen plenty games where Torres should played a pass but shot. If you want to score & win you take your chances, not pass to your oaf of a teammate who can't hit a barn door with a banjo. You do that once you're 4 - 0 up with 10 minutes to play. That's when you pass to the donkey with the lead boots, otherwise you hit that ball because you know & everyone else knows that you're better at putting them away.

Yes, the ball seems to stick to Messi's feet. It was seriously magical stuff last night & left me & my mates truly mesmerised at what we were witnessing. However, did you see Messi's dive (twice) last night? Did you see the Barca players who fell over the minute they were touched? Did you see the Arsenal players who did the same? Did you see Torres try to con a penalty out of the ref at Old Trafford? It's the modern game. Player comes near you at the wrong time & down you go if the other option is better. I've watched many a game & thought "If he'd gone down that would've been a penalty or free kick". I've watched many a game & thought "if he'd stayed on his feet he would've score." Doesn't matter the team or players, they're all at it.

Facts are Ronaldo is a fantastic player & I'm sure any team would love to have him in the team. Personal opinion on him and his attitude will always be divided, but he is a great player & deserves to be mentioned in the same breath as Messi......

when was this? not recenlty - so he had a good season once still doesnt make him a great, i cant get past everything else - he could score 97 goals in a season all from the half way line in play and i'd still think he was a cock - i might concede that he's a cock that can score awesome goals from the half way line but an absolute tool non the less


Shocked Not last season, the season before. Laughing I'd call that rather recent Laughing He's had 3 very good seasons which is why Real paid £80 Million for him. And he's having a pretty good season this season to boot.......

As I've said, opinion on him will always be divided. Maybe he is a Cock, but he's a cock who is brilliant at the beautiful game...... Wink

Ronaldo did that on one occassion. I've seen Beckham do it, Rooney's done it, Fowler's done it. NO player likes being subbed for any reason. They love the game & want to play all 90 minutes of every game of every season. You want that caring from a player, the emotion, the not wanting to come off. It's all part & parcel of the game, especially if the game is not going your way.......... Ronaldo has got on with the game many times after things haven't gone his way.

yellowteddybear wrote: I still think he went down too often and without all the cheating his scoring record would be a quarter of what it is then this conversation wouldnt be happening - if he played fair he wouldnt be who he is today - the only reason he became so famous and hyped is because of his behaviour not because of his skill

Many players, especially the greats, go down much more than they should, Drogba, Messi, Kaka, Ronaldinho to name a few & we won't even get into Rivaldo's performance at a certain World Cup.... If his goals mainly came from penalties & free kicks then you'd have a point, but you don't score 31 goals from open play as a winger whilst sitting on your backside for most of the game. He's famous because he can score from almost anywhere on the pitch, hits a mean freekick & bamboozled premiership defenders. Yes he had his tantrums, but so does Rooney when things don't go his way. Yes, he spat his dummy out of the pram, but so does Rooney when things don't go his way. So did Torres at Old Trafford when things didn't go his way, in fact, I thought Torres was gonna get sent off at Old Trafford due to his tantrums & dummy spitting. The best players have massive confidence and with that comes a massive ego. Some play up to it, others play it down Dunno

He's a brilliant player & brilliant at cheating, as was Messi last night....... As Torres is....... As Ronaldinho is...... As the modern greats are....... All part & parcel these days. You only hate him for 2 reasons.
1) He's a cocky arrogant so & so. But Mohammed Ali was hated by many for the exact same reason...... He was still a great boxer.....
2) He played for Manchester United Laughing You know it's true rofl

Inter Milan 3 - 1 Barcelona Shocked Shocked

Well I didn't see that coming. I thought Inter might nick it 1-0 maybe 2-1, but winning by 2 clear goals Shocked Shocked Barca have a lot of work to do & it won't be as easy as it was against Arsenal........

I think in the second leg Jose will set his stall out for a draw (As he started last night apparently) & tell his players to hit on the counter. Barca HAVE to attack which will leave spaces to be exploited. Barca won't walk it, even at the Nou Camp & with all their top players available they are going to struggle to win this tie. Inter have proven to be a very good team under Jose & Jose himself has proven to be an astute tactician and a Damn fine manager.

I'd say 2-1 Barca, but that won't be enough.......... Dunno

The special one is off to spain after Italy. Trust me, he wants all three major league titles. He won't go anywhere near Anfield

6-0 Shocked Nope not against a side belonging to Jose.

Possibilities of an Inter vs Lyon final..... thinking

I've got to admit, it wasn't the most exciting of games, but then Champions League games which don't involve Barcelona (And more importantly a certain lil Argie) are rarely all that exciting.

It's difficult to believe that the game had 2 red cards yet was still kinda dull, but that's exactly what it was. The goal wasn't bad though........ Dunno

I'm amazed that's the final. I was expecting Manchester United Vs Barcelona or Manchester United vs Inter. Bayern (Cheating W*****s Mad ) were not even in my thoughts to get this far.......

I'll be wearing my Inter Shirt for that one!
