Real Madrid 2 Borussia Dortmund 0, but it's not enough as Borussia advance to the UEFA finals on goal aggregate (4-3).

In the end, they gave the germans a real scare is was just unfortunate that they missed so many chances in the first 20 mins or maybe the excitement wouldnt have come just in the last ten minutes.

Real had them rattled but it was too little too late. I did tell you the Germans might get shaken up a bit. Part two tonight!! Although I agree with Thomas last week - it was Real who had a greater chance to rescue anything than Barca. Probably Barca play at too slow a pace to score that many goals against Bayern. And Bayern could easily score as well and once that happens, its over. Again, early goal is the key.

100,000 Germans will descend upon London in May to watch football coming home! wink
Oh, how we will laugh!


A German invasion of London? Thats quite funny.

If Bayern advances--it really isn't a question of "if", is it unless Barca win 5-0--then we will at least be guaranteed another tournament where a German side loses, its players lying on their backs with their legs bent; but then a German team will actually win a championship. It should be an entertaining match. Borussia owned Bayern last season and IIRC are the only Bundesliga team to beat them this season.

I'll be sure to invite myself over for a pint and something fried--but let's have none of that "soundtrack" talk!

It's presently 3-0 Bayern Munich in the 82nd minute.

Where's Graham S. Watt with his pidgin talk? I miss Graham. And his pidgin talk,

Actually just three teams defeated Munich this season: Leverkusen, Arsenal…and FC BATE Borisov big grin. Dortmund didn't.

I beg to add that my own club (which "celebrates" 30 years without a German championship this year razz) has a 7-3 aggregate record against Dortmund this season. cool

Munich is certainly favoured to win the Wembley final, but I wouldn't underestimate the psychological pressure. It's theirs to lose...a third time in four years. Dortmund won't have that pressure.

I appreciate the correction, Urs. smile

I've never seen Barca get destroyed in two successive matches before but it sure was a joy to see. lol Instead of "parking the bus" like Chelsea did last year, but Bayern just drove the bus over them.

I'm looking forward to the final, which has two deserving teams playing.

thats funny.

heard an amusing comment from a listener on the radio today saying that Bayern fans are worried that when Guardiola arrives, he will abandon their attacking system and get them to start playing ticki-tacki ha ha!!!

Well jim, Bayern sure did give them a lesson, at home and more unexpectedly, away too. UK Papers today talking about if its time to break up this jaded Barca team and where they need major strengthening. Never expected them to be soooooo awful for sure. But for the good of the game its great to see the dominating giants getting such a hammering.

It's a changing of the guard which is a regular occurrence in sports, as we know. There's a small window of time where a once-great team can get to a certain level and either show up in a final but then get crushed, but Barca dropped off even before that these past two years. We've seen flashes of their admitted brilliance but the injures become a little more nagging and the competition gets a little stronger. All glory is fleeting. (*echoplex trumpet*) big grin

I'm not sure where Bayern is in the scheme of history, maybe like Juventus of some years ago if they just win this one title? I think they've been playing my possessed madmen since losing the final in their own back yard last season and won't be satisfied until they win this thing. It shouldn't be easy going up against their league rival. Can't wait to see this. smile

What a result for Leeds!!! Beating Watford.

Great wins for Wigan and Aston Villa - puts pressure back on sunderland and newcastle.

Sadly Hammers couldnt muster a goal against Newcastle, which wouldve been wonderful.

Nice Gareth Bale goal against Southampton, and that goal coming when it did was another example of a lesser team folding at the end. This seems to be a common occurrence in football where they can resist and hold until the very end when they finally break, like how West Ham did against City a couple of weeks ago. Tottenham needed that three points and their upcoming match against Chelsea is even more important now. I love the fight for those Champions League spots.

A good day for Yorkshire - Barnsley and Huddersfield staying up, Doncaster and. Rotherham already up from their leagues and Bradford and Blades in their playoffs.

Not to mention Fergusonson being relegated...

And Leeds putting Hull into the Premier League.

Our year next year!

Games do open more in the latter stages when players get tired and defensive concentration lapses.

Yes Jim, if football was a game of 70 minutes, west ham would be world champions!!

It used to be danger but conceding late is our new middle name.

Yeah, but Steve Bruce returns to the Premier League (again!). Six of one, half a dozen of another.

Wolverhampton dropping down to League One is depressing. Such a precipitous fall.

I'd like to see Leeds back in the top flight, then you would actually talk about the Premier League instead of the Phantom Zone you've been, uh, relegated to for the past eight years or so. The thing is, I would absolutely follow the Championship if 1) It were broadcast here and 2)If I had cable or satellite. lol

Speaking of relegation, I see that Nottingham Forest has done the relegation rumba and have fallen a long way since their glory years of the mid 1970s. I'd like to see them back up there, too.

Oh well, another year of eating near the kitchens, looking at the big boy's table with envy....

Tempers flare in 1-1 draw between Borussia Dortmund-Bayern Munich.

Ajax enters a "new era of domination" as they won their third consecutive Eredivisie championship again this year. They had these blond women in football outfits--including the cute high socks--handing out champagne in plastic bottles so the players could be dopey. I could watch European football all damn day, even this Dutch stuff if only to see who might make the national team.

a good win for chelsea over United. It was fairly even and both sides had their chances but Chelsea just edged it. All set for the "biggy decider" wednesday night v Tottenham. Win that and they see off Arsenal and Tottenham and even put themselves within a point of City and second!

A rather predictable share of the spoils in the Mersey derby.

Bill, you missed out the word 'terrible' before Mersey derby in your sentence smile
It was garbage, two average teams cancelling each other out in a dispute over local bragging rights!
Oh how the mighty have fallen frown

Everton had a perfectly good goal ruled out for some phantom foul, but then Liverpool had a Suarez 'winner' wrongly chalked off in the Goodison game earlier in the season, so things are all equal, I suppose.

Juventus win another Scudetto. Their second in a row. Oh wait, we never talk about Italian football here, do we?
