Sky Sports announcer just did the Herb Brooks speech from Miracle. That might be a little too much.

Let's go Blues!

Well the first half certainly didn't lack for excitement! Torn on the red card- obviously stupid play by Terry, but Sanchez is also one of the worst floppers I have ever seen.

Should be a very interesting second half!

I don't really have much problem with the red card. Sanchez made the most of it, but it was incredibly stupid by Terry. The problem I have is that the ref is being swayed too much by the crowd.

Unbelievable. Messi missing the PK was the critical moment. You have to give so much credit to Chelsea for battling all the way through. Barca looked like the Gophers on the powerplay throughout the entire second half- passing around the outside without creating a lot of chances.

Chelsea can't feel great about their chances in the final though, as Terry (I believe), Ramires, and at least one other player will be out for the start.

Ivanovich and Meireles are out too. And Cahill may be out with the injury.

I think Bayern will advance today. One game away from playing in the CL Final at home.

This has been a fantastic game so far.

Much more entertaining than watching Barca pass the ball around.

Two dumb questions. Why didn't Kaka start the game for Real? IIRC he's one of the best players in the world and I would think they'd want him in the whole game. Also, why don't yellow cards wipe out after a certain amount of games? You could have gotten a yellow in the first Champions league match back in September and get one in the final Semi-final game and you miss the championship. That just doesn't seem right.

As for Kaka, I have no idea. Mourinho has his way of doing things.

Yellow cards are cumulative, but suspensions are only at certain levels (i.e. after 3rd, 6th, 9th cards). That is why RM players were purposely getting yellow cards last season (or maybe the season before) in order to get their suspension out of way in the final group game. They started the knockout round with a clean slate.

I think Kaka's best years are behind him. I think he's like 32. Still a very good player, just not at that "one of the best players in the world" status anymore.

I don't watch Real a lot, but i'm pretty sure their formation usually works like this: Xabi Alonso and Khedira are CDM's, Benzema and Ozil are used more as strikers, and Ronaldo/Di Maria play the CAM/LW/RW positions.

The only one you could put him in over in that lineup is Di Maria, and I think Kaka vs. Di Maria is a toss up.

Kaka's 30. In soccer years that has to be ancient because it seems players like Messi and Rooney have been around forever and they're only 24-25.

Correction on Real's formation:

Benzema is the striker, Ronaldo and Di Maria play the wings, and Ozil is the CAM.

So it's Ozil taking Kaka's starts away.

As for the other semi, I just think Real Madrid is too talented for Bayern.



The Blues are playing well & keep in mind they have 2 Minnesotans on their roster- Langenbrunner & Backes!

And that's by far the right call. Kaka isn't nearly as good a player as he was 3-4 years ago. Ozil is an absolute stud and will be for a long time.

Balotelli is a tool. So is Tevez.

City has had a couple really nice opportunities, just can't get a solid shot off.

I don't think United even has one SOG.

Kompany puts City on the board, from a corner.

1-0 just before haltime.

This isn't quite as good because it was a free kick, but I've never seen anyone do to a ball what Roberto Carlos could.

Messi is fantastic, but he gets so many goals on penalties. He's the designated PK taker on his team and in the last 3 games that I have seen he has taken 5 penalties. It's a bit ridiculous that he keeps racking up the goals and a fair amount come from penalties.

I couldn't find the stats for CL/Tournament games, but in La Liga play Messi has 10 goals on penalties this year, and Ronaldo has 12. I don't think the fact that he takes penalties is a detriment to the stats he is putting up.

Top 3 scorers in La Liga (minus goals from PKs):
Messi - 40
Ronaldo - 32
Falcao - 18

He should be. If they didn't play like a 3rd or 4th division team early in the season they wouldn't be in this position. The fact they have a shot at 3rd right now is actually impressive given that.

Any idea where the final might be televised in a pro-German locale on Saturday? Looking for a fun place to go with my brother and a friend to root on Bayern.

I can't think of any place off hand that will be pro-German. I will be watching both at Old Chicago in Apple Valley. I'm sure there will be plenty of Bayern and Chelsea fans there and hopefully a lot of neutrals who just want to see a good match. The last couple of years there has been a good turnout.

Your best bets would probably be The Local or Keiran's. Just a guess, but I think Brits will be heavily skewed towards Chelsea.

OK. I think I have taken all the necessary precautions.

I have the Tivo set to record the game + an hour and a half extension if it goes long. ESPN mobile alerts turned off. Not going to go on FB at all until I watch the game. So if all goes well, I will make it through the whole day without finding out who won. :lol:

Mission accomplished! Made it the whole day without finding out who won!

Just finished watching it. Disappointed that Bayern didn't win, but it was an exciting game! Drogba's header was brilliant.

Bayern wasn't the same after they took Müller out for Van Buyten.

I took relatively similar precautions as you, but was only on an hour delay. I had the DVR set to only record an extra 30 mins. It was nearly enough. It cut out just as Drogba was took his first step towards taking his PK. I had to go online immediately to find out if he put it in or not.

Not sure, she said he was with a friend. Her brothers friend owns the restaurant and my girlfriend had no idea who he was (Not surprising) until her brothers friend told her and she saw a couple people get autographs.

Next up is Brazil tomorrow at 7. I'll be interested to see how they play. Not sure what kind of lineup Brazil will throw out there.

Brazil's C team would probably still be a top 20 team in the world. So no matter who they throw out there is going to be a great test.

You didn't miss much except for suspect refereeing. Greek player sent off for 2 yellow cards before halftime. Neither was even a foul. Polish goalie coming off the bench to save a penalty.

I've got the Germans winning it as well. Although if Van Persie and Robben are in form the Dutch will be incredibly tough to beat.

I don't even know if I can pick a dark horse this year. I do think the 'group of death' will lend some surprises...possibly even Ireland getting out of that group. It should be a fun tournament to watch.

I don't even know if I can pick a dark horse this year. I do think the 'group of death' will lend some surprises...possibly even Ireland getting out of that group. It should be a fun tournament to watch.

Hard to argue against Spain, but I think it will be Germany too. Assuming they do get out of their group! That is just brutal.
Bene dic, Domine, creaturam istam cerevisae, quam ex adipe frumenti producere dignatus es: ut sit remedium salutare humano generi: et praesta per invocationem nominis tui sancti, ut, quicumque ex ea biberint, sanitatem corporis, et animae tutelam percipiant.

What a terrible place is a pub with no beer.
