    Worth the 90min to watch a replay this evening?

    Thanks for the tip - finally got a chance to see it. Holy shit that goal was nice. Less than 7.5 seconds from his first touch at half to ball in the net...

    Holy hell Barca's season went downhill fast. Nasty free kick from Messi yesterday though.

    And this is pure class.

    what a snoozefest. Best quote of the match: "Are all these aimless crosses Simeone's personal tribute to David Moyes?"

    All part of mourhinos plan. Neutralize Athletico in Madrid and take back to London for a 1-0 win.

    Sure could have used a goal to open it up.

    Today's game now could be a barn burner.

    Might as well start a general Footy/Soccer thread

    Mourinho and boring, negative soccer? Color me surprised.

    ETA: this just popped up in my FB feed:
    Mourinho's post game remarks after a goalless draw between Chelsea and Tottenham in 2004:

    "As we say in Portugal, they brought the bus and they left the bus in front of the goal.

    "I would have been frustrated if I had been a supporter who paid 50 to watch this game because Spurs came to defend.

    "I'm really frustrated because there was only one team looking to win, they only came not to concede - it's not fair for the football we played."

    Oh the ironing...

    Losing Cech and Terry makes it a bit of a Pyrrhic victory, no? There's sheafs of Mourinho quotes about parking the base blah de fucking blah. The more interesting bit, imo, is his comments re. the game vs. Liverpool this weekend. "throwing it" to give scouse the title would also weaken Pellegrini, the main rival for next season.

    Or it could be the usual bullshit mindgame.

    This. It's never not a mind game with Mou.

    Even though they're five points back, I'd argue they've probably got a better shot of winning the league at this point than they do of winning the Champions League.

    Indeed, my bad. Haven't been paying attention to Prem League. I'm too focused on the shit show in Catalunya.

    Guardian commentator Jacob Steinberg: "42 min: Pepe is a truly ridiculous individual, perhaps the worst footballer who ever lived. Watching him play, if you can call it that, is a deeply unpleasant experience. He was fairly challenged by Kroos in his own half on the left and, of course, he threw himself into the air and started rolling around, unable to believe he hadn't been given a free-kick, acting as if he'd been the victim of an egregious assault. Bayern keep attacking and Real are down a defender. But when Lahm looks around to make sure Pepe is okay, the eedjit, who was about to get up once he realised Webb wasn't interested, dropped back to the floor again and Lahm knocked the ball out of play. A few words come to mind, most of them containing four letters."

    Pepe was #1 on their list of football pantomime villains, he's such a crook:

    He's a bit of a hothead for sure...but from watching that compilation, half of the fouls were iffy. Fuck I hate flopping.

    Yeah - Pepe is a belligerent player at times but some of that - like that dramatic Dani Alves pirouette from the Real/Barca champions league game a couple years back - play acting of its own.
