Champions' League 2017

In fairness I think that was only natural, the aim would have been to get 3 -0 Then start a new game in extra time

I must be watching a different game. No way was that a penno, if anything a handball free out and all the Buffster did was remonstrate, so how was it a red card? Such a hometown decision for the fascists, gives a dodgy peno and sends off the man most likely to save it. Madrid have the luck of the devil. Except cheating isn’t luck.

By the way, how is Gianni’s hair still so black at the age of 49?

Ah here we go, the Keaneo school of discussion. It wasn’t wrong because you didn’t defend to the standards I expect of everyone (except me, and however irrelevent that is). Amazing how he would have seen that ball that Henry handballed do anything but go out except if it was handballed.


#912

That’s some take on it !


#913

Are you alright?


#914

You are in for it now :laughing:


#915

I like Juve, and hate Madrid (but Ronaldo is growing on me, in spite of him, and me) but it was a peno. Push in the back, and foot high?

Would love the audio of Buffon and co losing their collective shit, would say it’s proper gangster movie stuff - ‘go ■■■■ your mother’ in aggressive Italian.


#916

Are you a twat?


#917

I didn’t see much of the game, @25AliveOh. I’ve absolutely no love for Madrid. But, on the penalty incident itself, for me, it was a penalty. I just wish the defender hadn’t made the challenge as I think Buffon would have snuffed out the danger.


#918

Fair enough Beeko. It looks innocuous enough to me. What was Buffy the Fascist Slayer sent off for?


#919

Well you’re certainly portraying yourself as one. You have more in common with Roy Keane that you might think, abrupt nonsensical shite talk with little or no relevance to the actual point being made.

It’s hardly that hard to comprehend why I pointed out 4 Juve defenders had let the Madrid player drift in to goalmouth unmarked, albeit they might have been exhausted, for professional players that is just inexcusable.


#920

Ha!!


#921

never a peno for me neither, but it seems we are in the minority!


#922

just about a peno for me , hand on the back and was all over him.

what did Buffon get sent off , making contact with the ref - he led the herd that moved him about 5 yards back.


#923

There were alternate angles of footage to what happened on rte last night . He appears to bump him & all up in his grill .


#924

That was only no peno if you are a hurling ref …


#925

Don’t know how anyone can question why Buffon was sent off without knowing what he may have said to the ref.


#926

He didn’t have to say anything at all. His physical interaction was a red card offence on its own. If he was thinking quickly he should have shook his hand …


#927

Gianluigi Moran! :grinning:


#928

Coincidence last night that Buffons champions league career should end to a team whose managers international career ended in the same way.
