So we get the Hollywood final for the CL Final after all then. Good stuff, I would have disliked having to see Chelski once again. Pretty poor refereeing on both Semi-Finals last week though. Fletcher get's an ill-deserved red card with no chance of appealing against it. And the ref for Chelski/Barca made a huge cluster of errors that probably costed Chelski. Not that I'm complaining. Watching Ballack near throttle the ref, Terry/Lampard giving off right in front of him and Drogba ranting and raving at the camera only confirms what scum they are. Ref even had to be smuggled out of the country for fear of death threats, what with his home address being posted on the internet and all. Classy.
Throw the book at em I say. Great result today for us. The press are going to focus on Ronaldo's moment of petulance at being subbed though. I can only speculate that he thought City were there for the taking and wanted to get more goals to secure his chance of getting the Golden Boot, but at the end of the day, game's already over at that stage, best to let him get some rest for the games to come. And I do hope Tevez's contract renewal is negotiable. I wouldn't pay £30+ mil for him and his longing to play more first-team football is understandable, but he's my kind of player. Shuts up, does the job and a little bit more to help the team.
I imagine Park's going to get his chance at the CL Final squad this time round which I'm glad of.
