It's time to liven the game up a bit?

Multi-ball?

foul equals lose an item of clothing?

what would be your suggestion?

If this goes to extra-time i think i will lose the will to breathe!

Anyone remember the AC milan Juventus final? That classic where the goals flowed and the football was inventive and a joy to behold..hang on a minute that was 0-0 and the single most boring game in the history of the champs league

on the radio they have just said that they hope there is a goal soon, because they "don't want 30 extra minutes of this"

While speakers of English look upon your post and cry.

I'm not entirely sure you know that much about football.

I think it's a good game.
But the premiership is vastly overrated...
One season of 3 teams in the semis is not translated into "the best league"...
Or may i remind you english-lovers that you thought the same when there WERE an all-italian and spanish final!!!

perhaps we could do a uri geller and just all concentrate on sending the message "penalty" to the referee.

I don't care who gets it, just want the ref to give a penalty in the next 10 minutes!

All start sending the message...

Penalty
Penalty
Penalty

Open your mind ref!

anyone who doesn't think the EPL is the best in europe is either biased or blind.

rincewind100: I am either blind och bias...
I am only realistic.
Because of 1 ONE - year - english teams succed in the CL - you are starting to scream "best league"..
A spanish team won BOTH the CL and UEFA-cup last years, and the years before they HAVE DOMINATED europe, before that Serie A was the best league...
The only bias is the one that think EPL is the best.
And don't forget that you probably never has agreed on that the year there were an all-italian all-spanish final - that the EPL was below there standard

I think Macherano and Makalele have been excellent. Sure, it hasn't been flair and fun but its been testing and tough.

As I speak Dirk Kuyt has just scored his penalty.

As to the best league in the world, IMO it's La Liga. 5 teams (just about) can win this year for example. Also, look at a club like Atletic Bilbao - they only play Basque players and yet have achieved consistant midtable success (except this year). Noone could do that it the Prem - there is little homegrown talent.

Also, whereas Arsenal are unique in the way they play (and most people say it is beautiful - it is) a lot more teams play like that in La Liga.

Serie A has been ruined by the recent scandal - it will take years to recover.

Also, without tomorrows game having been played, the semi involving a non-English team has been better to watch than this one, not that this one has been bad, but just not a good introduction to "the beautiful game".
