Outside of San Siro a.k.a. the Others with wrong colors

There are a couple of sub-forums here that have threads about other teams and their games. I think we should too have a place where we discuss other games, such as Man Utd's 5-2 or Valencia-Barca 2-2 and so on.

I saw the two mentioned teams and it's remarkable how much stronger winner mentality Man Utd has compared to us. We have more winners but they still have the mentality. I mean being down 0-2 and then winning 5-2 is amazing, sure the penalty that led to 1-2 was cheap but the other four goals were legitimate and deserved.

It's also amazing watching a professional team with big ambitions just collapse like Spurs did yesterday. Although we've had a couple of those games too

Valencia IMO showed how vulnerable Barca really is when you put some pressure on them. Of course the difficulty is to actually take the ball away from them and apply the said pressure. Barca IMO is the team to beat this season in Europe and hopefully they'll not lose the title to Real Madrid :hopeful:

Spurs are ManU's biatches... There was a season they were leading 3-0 at halftime only to lose 5-3 to ManU in the end... Personally I wanted Spurs to win yesterday cause I've punted $50 at odds 5-1 on them winning and at HT I thought I could collect my winnings today

Peno was never a peno and christina shoul#ve got a red for tripping lennon, then taking shirt off after scoring peno. corrupt refs in italy, just bad elsewhere. yeah right. manure always get a hand at ot.

If you know all this info, why do you continue to bet on them? It is like a milanista that continue to bet on inert wining the CL, just for the odds

Sorry, but there's nothing amazing about beating Tottenham.

The CL is exactly the reason why I placed this bet Since I expected ManU to rest a few players ahead of their CL game next week. Blind cats stumbled upon dead mice sometimes but unfortunately the blind cats were screwed by a blind referee yesterday

I wasn't too impressed by Man Utd's win. They score 1 decent goal (Ronaldo's header). The rest were either dodgy referee decisions or poor defending/goalkeeping. Only at Old Trafford can the ball trickle over the goal line slower than Emerson...twice.

So it's flair against power tonight. I think that the toughest team for Barca to meet is indeed Chelsea. They are fast, strong and very good in the air. The two later characteristic is something that I think, without having watched that many Barca games, that Barca has a problem with.

Then there are the coaches as well. Hiddink as we all know is a genius, one of the best coaches around tactically while Guardiola is an unproven but has done it very well so far. But isn't this the first time he goes against a world class coach with a good team?

Out of the four I'm hoping for Chelsea. Not because I like them but because everyone dislikes them. And I'm watching the game with barcafans.
Tbh I can't find any other reason to give a **** about UCL without Milan in it and I figure it's as good a reason as any even if I know I'll yawn no matter who scores.

Well that wasn't quite the spectacle I was expecting really. Chelsea was defensively minded and hardly had any real attacks. I think it was 17-3 in shots and 10-1 in corners in Barca's favor. Don't know the ball possession stats but I can imagine it was at least 60+ for Barca.

No Man UTD is at least a world class club, them are mid-table club. They should be content with playing Everton in the FA cup.
