uh...?newbie original;3013073 said:What happened, Inter? Huh?
First you lose to the world's biggest cheaters by 3 goals........and then you lose, at home, to a club struggling in its domestic league? What the hell!
You just made it so much easier for ManPoo/Chelski to waltz into the final.
Better get out your pillows because you will not be going to the Theatre of Dreams.
and the penalties were a joke? Milan should have been relegated? what justice system are you basing this on? ......
maybe for you, but certainly not for anyone else, not least in Italy ... it showed that the players were never the problem; the background politicians were ...newbie original;3015245 said:The Italian World Cup win overshadowed this whole fiasco and, somehow, it all got swept under a rug very quickly. A damn shame!
well, since those are rules in the La-La Land you call your mind, it must be so in real life ...newbie original;3015245 said:Juventus were relegated. To be fair, Milan should have been:
1. relegated to Serie B
2. banned from European competition for atleast 3 seasons
as a Liverpool fan, whose team was allowed into the 2005/06 competition by not only a bullsh!t modification of the qualifying rules, but a bullsh!t modification of the rules that was enforced past the deadline date for such changes, I don't think you have any room to talk about a team playing in a competition that they shouldn't be playing in ...newbie original;3015245 said:They will, in my mind, forever be considered the cheaters that were declared the best team in Europe in 2007. Just think that over for a second okay......in 2006 they are found GUILTY of match-fixing and in 2007 they are allowed to compete in the most prestigious club tournament in the world. FAIR PLAY? HA! Yeah right.
if one can grade levels of murder, one can grade levels of match fixing ...newbie original;3015245 said:You can't try to justify levels of match fixing
it's not ... appointing a ref doesn't mean you necessarily appoint him to favour your side; it is plausible you want a ref who has proven to be fair, and with no bias for or against any side ...newbie original;3015245 said:which by the way IS the same as appointing the appropriate official to, you know, HELP YOU WIN,.....at the end of the day, it's MATCH FIXING!!!
we're back in your La-la land again, with you trying to come up with some pathetic reasoning to justify your team being awarded the Champions League, despite no referee appointments being influenced in the Champions League ...newbie original;3015245 said:And AS Roma deserve to be the 2003-2004 Serie A Champions. Milan should have been stripped of that title and the runners up(Roma) should have been awarded the trophy. If you ask me, Milan deserves the same treatment with regards to their 2007 CL title.
Cristi has been broken by injury after injury, culminating in his head being cracked open (with his survival a minor miracle) ... what i mean is: he is unrecognizable from the player who did some amazing things at Ajax till 2003, and at Roma till 2004 ...Recrero152;3020583 said:I think Leonardo has been given enough matches and time to prove his worth and although I really wanted him to do good, I do not think that he is the right manager for us now. It's quite obvious that he isn't a tactical genius but some consolation must be given, especially considering how poorly Chivu and Ranocchia have done and in particular the unspeakable losses against Milan and Schalke at home. I'm especially very disappointed about Ranocchia. I really thought he could be something but he has given nothing but bad performances in the spring. We still have the cup to go for but considering the team's current condition, I doubt we will win it.
I like Spalletti, but I more and more feel that the strength of his personality, and thus his ability to handle a team full of superstar personalities (and sometimes egos), is not good enough to manage a top side ... I'll be happy if, given the chance, he proves me wrong ...Recrero152;3020583 said:I wanted Spalletti to take over when Benitez got sacked and I still want him to take over now but we'll see how it goes with that.
