#271: morning's CL

Right, so I woke up to catch the last ten minutes of Arsenal v Real Madrid, only shocked to see
a goaless draw which also means that Arsenal goes through with the 1-0 aggregate win. Seriously, what's wrong with Real Madrid? Definitely, they should send on Robinho much earlier if they want to win or score but they are only sending him out in the last 7 minutes! With Robinho, Ronaldo and Ramos infront, they can't score? What crap is this?? Tskk, *shakes head*. Disappointment. I was expecting them to score 2 goals or something and I see a 0-0 when I turn on the tv. Furthermore, Real played dirty - Bravo trying to get Helb up with such fierce pull and Zidane pushing the head of Ljungberg when he lost his boot? Just what attitude is this? This is not expected from a world-class player, eh? Overall, I would say Arsenal played the better game, really despite Real Madrid's few shots on goal saved by the golden hands of Lehmann. Sorry lalita82, howie10 and other RM fans out there for the elimination.

Then, I switched the channel to check on Liverpool v Benfica. 0-2 on the 2nd leg. ZERO-TWO THEY TRAIL. Champions of CL 2004/2005 losing out 0-3 on aggregate?! Ridiculous. I thought they could win it and blah, they lost it. Bye, Liverpool. I only caught like the last 5 minutes of the gameplay so I don't know who played the better team. Peter Crouch, very much sadded and yes, there is a reason. Mr Rafael did well but maybe this time the tactics didn't work against Benfica. Sorry to autumnstar15 for the elimination as well.

After the matches, they had this CL aftermatch preview. Hm, JAMIE REDKNAPP, Graehem Souness(?!) as 2 of the 4 guests in studio, heh. I mean, Souness? Geez.

So right now, Barca, Arsenal, Benfica, Juventus, Lyon, AC Milan and Villareal are through.

I should be worrying for Ajax v Internazionale next week. I'll be dead happy if Ajax goes through but I would think they would not make it so far but if Internazionale goes through instead, they would have a shot at winning the title. Hmm, I had a dream that Arsenal and AC Milan were grouped together and AC Milan won hahah.

*hugs all RM and Liverpool fans on her flist*
