Watched the penalties on youtube, just proves what I've always believed about penalties (especially in shoot outs) that it's much better to focus on smashing the ball into a corner and beating the keeper than it is to try and send him the wrong way or do anything "clever".

Ronaldo relied on the keeper not guessing right and as a result his shot had fuck all power
Ramos tried a little fake step and all that did was throw him off rather than the Bayern keeper

Bayern's penalties were all smashed into a corner. At least then if the keeper guesses right you've got a reasonable chance of the power taking the ball in regardless.

Crazy - the two most talented teams are out and I have to choose between Chelski or a bunch of Germans.

I think I might end up choosing Chelski!

Bayern still had one penalty take left and Madrid had two left so we'll never know who would have taken those

Agree with your first point, but Bayern's penalties weren't all that great. The two that were saved were weak (especially Lahm's), and Casillas would have easily saved Gomez's had he dived the right way.

Exactly - the saved penalties were weak "hope the keeper goes the wrong way" shit.

2 of Bayern's 3 were smashed and Gomez got lucky that Casillas guessed wrong

It should never be a case of "I hope the keeper doesn't guess right cos otherwise I'm fucked".

You're not giving enough credit to the keeper for saving Ronaldo's shot.

It was driven hard and low, into the corner. Not much else you can do as a player.

Madrid were always going to struggle after Classico on the weekend

Thing about penalties is, they're difficult at the best of times. Add in a home semi-final in the Champions League, and there's all kinds of pressure which kills a player's nerves.

Number 1 rule in penalties is: hit the target.

tbh, with the amount of research that goes into penalties pre-cup ties, I'm surprised players don't go to their weaker side more often.

It was a decent stop, but nothing spectacular. You'd expect most keepers to make the save having gone the right way.

It wasn't a great penalty, and it was a long way from being in the corner.

I just watched it again, and you're right... It was a shit penalty!

Thing is, the late goal in Munich is what cost them, they should never have conceded it.

This Real team will never win shit unless they get rid of Ramos, and get a good CB and RB to match up with Pepe and Coentrao.

They always concede goals, no matter what the score. Mourinho's Inter and Chelsea teams, didn't.

Aye true. But there's no chance of Mourinho axing Spanish players in favour of Portuguese.

Thats what the experts said when Chelsea played Barca @ the Nou Camp.

I'd rather be playin a side that don't have Jose managing tbh. He'd fck with Di Matteo's head to much.

Anyway great to see the 2 worlds most respected & best teams make the final.

That has happened since 2008

Yep, that would be good if Real actually made it to the final.

I never could have thought it possible for Ronaldo to fluff a penalty, even on a bad day.

Would be kyf for Ronaldo if he has scored every penalty he's taken in the 2011/2012 season prior to the shootout (not sure of the exact statistic, was just interested if the shootout miss was his first for the season)

Speaking of cvnts, I like the fact that I get to see Terry red carded every time I scroll down any football thread.

You won, fair play, but that doesn't stop it from being boring to watch for others.

I have no love for Barca: in fact I probably preferred Chelsea winning truth be told, especially seeing as how Barcelona players have this general sense of entitlement in the way they conduct themselves both on and off the pitch (plus the fact they were diabolical in their dealings over Fabregas). All that doesn't change the fact that your team had almost no intention of actually playing football.

And I am envious, no doubt, I would love it if the Gunners were in your position but the one redeeming factor for me if Chelsea does win go on to win it, is that Terry won't. The despicable cvnt is reaping exactly what he has sown.


So are you telling me if Chelsea / Manure / Pool / Spuds or Citehh were losing to S****horpe/ Doncaster / Barnsley or Bournemouth in the final of the FA Cup after 5 mins & decided to park the bus to protect there lead then play the 2nd half with 10 men it would be boring to watch for the neutral?


Bullcrap

Yud luv it

You didnt want Chelsea to win thats why you found it boring

Are people being serious about how they played?


Chelsea had tactics ( defend).

Tactics worked

In the final.

Profit?

Arsenall had tactics (attack)

Tactics failed.

Watched the final from home, feeling sorry for themselves but at least they played "pretty".

apparently being down to 10 men, having no central defenders, away at the nou camp, for an hour, and still scoring two goals is considered boring and parking the bus...

Barcelona's most common pass combo was Busquets - Iniesta at 30. Chelsea's most common pass combo was Cech - Drogba at 6. Chelsea got the second goal because Barcelona were pushing forward looking for another goal. Also, John Terry is a ****.
