    Sorry dude
    You would be saying that if it happened to Arsenal Got to admit Riise got terrific purchase on that header
    Yeah plus it was right at the kop
    Not forgetting that it went in the Top Left Hand Corner
    Yeah and did you see Drogba rub it all in at the end.
    The guy should have been nominated for an Oscar for his performance tonight

    That was the funniest thing ever!

    All the kop were singing and shouting at even the slightest thing that went in their favour like they had won the competition. And then Riise!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Followed by silence!



    Reminds me of a few years back when Arsenal played Wigan in the League Cup semi and the crowd were cheering every pass, Ole, Ole etc and then Wigan scored to win on away goals. Things have a habit of coming back to bite you in the....

    The bridge is tough to play.
    Chelsea have a brilliant record at Stamford bridge. I think even man utd haven`t scored there since what? 2002?

    That penalty miss by Ronaldo made it difficult for Man Utd ... an away goal would have been very important.

    Barca should have scored but haven`t...Manutd goes a slight advantage to old trafford but the tie is still tight tho.
    Can`t see this tie ending with a Barca clean sheet, they`ll suffer at old trafford. I still see Manutd in the final but Barca can still pull in out. Despite the draw, it was their best performance since quite some time.

    at C.Ronaldo. He has no facial expression when he scores, at least he has one when he misses.

    All in the Balance I Think.

    United didnt play well but got the 0-0, the Penalty was a big miss they should have had another clear foul from Marquez

    Barca Should have had one as well.

    Despite the lack of big threat from Manutd, Marquez had all kind of troubles...the guy will crack at old trafford..Thuram would be a better choice.

    Marquez is banned, Puyol will come back in... Thuram is too slow if he played Ronaldo, Tevez and Rooney will run him ragged.

    I think it was a great result for United tonight but its gonna be tough at old trafford, I think we could see penalties next week.

    But Thuram is fresh...and don`t under estimate him..he`s still pretty capable.. Could survive a match.

    Again, @ C.Ronaldo.

    After seeing first leg results, I predict:

    Chelsea to beat Liverpool and go through.

    Manchester United to beat Barca and go through.

    Chelsea v Manchester United final

    We were poor. If we play like that again, Barca will defo score.

    But I think we can win maybe by 1 or even 2 at OT. We've won all 5 games at home in the Champions League and only conceded 1 so far.
