Hey as this is the off topic..

What's everyone doin for a living these days?

I know Pulsy's some financial guy or somethin...

Dunno what Tazzy's doin, Firdy, I've no idea.

The rest of you, no concept.

I'm doin an MA in Modernist and Post Modernist Literature and teaching English, mostly to Italian teenagers whose parents send them over to Dublin to study . Needless to say there's plenty of calcio-related banter.... usually get a few INTER fans in each class. Also do some private and secondary level literature classes.

Anyway what's crackin with you guys these days?

I was fully up for Roma tonight but even Roma fans must admit they put on a bad performance in the final third of the pitch

their usual great build up play but their passing and shooting from long range was pretty horrendous


Roma at top form would have scored 3 or 4

I don't really fancy their chances in Manchester TBH ... which is a shame because I hate Man U and the EPL

Mexes looked very very dodgy throughout ... Roma coped well in the air but as we've seen all year they pose absolutely no aerial threat themselves

Chelsea don't have a prayer now IMO which is fantastic

I don't think there's any way they'll beat Valencia in the Mestalla

fingers crossed Liverpool will be the only EPL side in the semis

ACM winning at Old Trafford ATM

great news

rubs sh*t into the faces of SKY SPORTS and the UK media

now we need Chelsea to beat Liverpool and than beat ACM

and all will be right in the world

I won't have to listen to the 2 million Man U/ Liverpool fans in this country talking about how their sides are the greatest in history

c'mon Chelski - ACM final

F*****

bollox

Man U won yet again

don't give ACM a prayer now

honestly

United are good enough to draw in the SS

bring on another 8 years of their fans thinkin they're the greatest club in the world

absolute horror show of a season in the CL

Look

Man Ure will score in the SS

no f***in doubt

Kaka is gonna have to have an outrageous game

and Inzaghi has to play

maybe some sort of miracle will happen and ACM'll get a 2-1 or something

I absolutely cannot bear the thought of Man U in another final

You guys aren't getting this

let me explain this in pretty simple terms

it comes down to preferences

this has jacksh*t to do with underestanding Italian or Milanese culture

which, believe me, I'm bombarded with 5 days a week teaching English to Italian kids

yeah my students tell me you can't be an INTER fan and want ACM to win ...

but they don't have to live in the British Isles where Serie A is considered a laughing stock and Man U and Liverpool are considered the epitome of footballing excellence

Let me make this very clear : OUT OF THE 100's and 100's of European sides in world football, there are 3 that I would not support in a match with Juventus or ACM

and only 3

they are : Man Ure, Liverpool and Arsenal

I have nothing against the Arse

but these are the top rated English sides that I have been f***king force-fed since I was a 12 year old child

Chelski are a non-event because no one supports them and they are essetnially the team of the Russian oil industry

I've already said I want ACM to lose horrifically in the CL final to Chelsea

BUT the thought of Man U or Liverpool winning that once sacred trophy is the stuff of nightmares


I don't live in Italy, hence my perogatives aren't the same as an Italian's

THAT SAID if it comes down to an ACM - Liverpool final its a lose-lose situation

F**k this year's competition really couldn't have turned out any worse

that was a great game

anyone see Tom Cruise celebrating hahah sorta surreal

wierd stuff

Mallorca missed an outrageous chance when they were winning 1-0

things really went against Barca

its a shame Real won coz they have one of the most shambolic defences in Europe - they'll be taken apart in the CL again next year if Capello stays - the team's just a mess

unheard of .....



beating Cagliari away is no easy feat though

Juve are starting to worry me

Roma-Juve will be a huge game in week 4

I've no doubt ASR will win it tho

very bad result for Juve

considering they're playing Roma next week

that'll be a very very interesting game

its worrying though that Juve can come that close to beating Fiorentina away


they're seemingly a much better side than most of us thought

great result for Roma aswell

OK who's watching what in the CL

SKY have all the games live

as much as I hate them you really can't beat this choice

and I'm watching on the widescreen TV in my parents place ... fantastic

Roma looking REALLY shaky currently 1-1 with Sporting

Barca taking Rangers apart on a couple of occasions ...
