    miracles happen every day!


    It wa unbelievable.I'm still too excited to sit somewhere.

    Dudek was the hero.
    I believed the lovely guy Steven Gerrard!
    Now I hope they'll be allowed to play in UCL next season.

    They won't defend their title.They finished 5-th in the league,after their city rivals,Everton.


    P.S.Moonbear,who stole the partying smilies...?:mad:

    T'was a great match, best final I've ever seen.

    I was glad Dudek saved the last penalty, although he was looking pretty poor in the match before the penalties!!!

    BTW Dextercioby, I doubt if very many Liverpool fans would refer to their team as the red devils!!!!

    Alright,both teams,Liverpool & Man.Utd have red as their traditional color.Anyway,this is less relevant,the effort was simply staggering...I mean 3 goals to AC Milan in 6 minutes :surprised:

    I don`t think I`ve ever seen a funnier 6 minutes in my life. I was watching it with a few liverpool fans, and their change of emotions was unbelievable!!

    There was also a man utd fan (cheering for Milan) nearby, who had a change in the opposite direction!!!

    3 crazy minutes in the final of '99.Man.Utd didn't play anything for 90 minutes,but in stoppage time scored twice and grabbed the cup.

    This final gotta be the best final in years. The last two finals were dead boring.
    Anyways EPL Roxxxxxx.

    Dudek? no no no...

    Liverpool would be useless if Rafa Benitez (the spanish coach) had not revolutioned it and exported the spanish techniques to an old fashioned club and to an old fashioned premier league. Current Liverpool way of playing is the way Valencia CF has been playing last years.

    C'mon, admit it... who else turned off at half time in disgust.... and didn't see the end??

  14. May 26, 2005 #13
    Yup dudek was the reason for conceding those goals
    They won despite him.
    But his fdancing around the goalpost during the penalties definitely put the milan players off

    Don't forget also the catalan Luis Garcia, ex-FC Barcelona player, that was decisive in semi final and quarter final with his goals

    I think I must say this: You'll never walk alone...

    Old fashioned premier league??? You must be taking the piss, liverpool on their day are a great team and they always raised their game for the champions league matches. But a truly great team don't need to raise their game. Next season will show if Benitez is a great manager rather than just a very good manager.

    Not taking anything away from liverpool for winning the cup, but they have been pretty poor in the league.

    I know they get the 4th place but who knows,maybe Uefa let them play in UCL next season,RIGHT!
    and I have to say when a team win in 6 minutes,you couldn't say who has the most important role so easily! :surprised

    well,for sure you didn't say it coz you're from Spain,did you?! :biggrin:
    You're right Benitez did a great job in LFC but only for UCL.I know he had lots of problems this year but anyway he wasn't successful in English Premiership and they didn't get 4th place.Although I know it's not always possible to have all things together but it's terrible if LFC won't play in UCL next season :cry:
    I really don't like Dudek.LFC's fans should be always worried about his terrible mistakes but he saved from Shevi and Pilo and "Dudek was hero..."is what goal.com said about him not me.If you ask me I think Gerrard is the best player.anyway LFC performance this season has a long story so let's forget it.

    A die hard liverpool supporter I know was so p***ed off at half time that he went out for a walk to vent his anger and missed the second half!!!
