So twice in the row are Inter robbed by the ref, is there anything left for Serie A nowadays...?

Garcia, may I remind you that you are not a Daily Mail reader...?

Ha ha Garcia.

I always enjoy reading these threads after games involving English and Italian teams, especially as sometimes I forget that I, like all British football fans, am a rustic simpleton who can only grunt in delight at being spoon-fed the heroics of Stevie G, and cannot appreciate the true aesthetic delight of Vieira's geriatric creaking or Ibrahimovic spunking chance after chance up the wall. I can only wonder at the subtlety and urbaneness of Italian football affecionados, such as Ganja's relentless tounging of Maldini and that bloke who occasionaly pops up and tells us that Calciopoli was all part of a big communist plot. After all, what aspect of a nation's character is not decided by the scores given to players by football journalists?

I've put Croute's post up there as it struck me that it was exactly the kind of thing that Clive Tydlesley would say if Livepool had been utterly outplayed by Inter and had two players sent off. Inter players need to learn that when you're on a yellow card you can't just carry on committing niggling fouls as if you weren't. Both red cards were harsh but could easily have been avoided were it not for the players' own stupidity.

garcia, only since you asked, the Gazzetta considers Burdisso's sending off to be a "harsh but technically accurate" interpretation of the rules.

They also contend that a consistent application of those rules would have seen at least one Liverpool player (Skrtel and Babel being the most likely) having also been issued two yellow cards.

That's why Ovrebo got a 4.

BTW, some of you may be interested to know that the Gazzetta debuted an English language version of their website today. It's only (rather) limited content and the translations are a bit clunky, but it is certainly better than nothing for those of you without Italian.

Note that they never put the marks on the website in Italian; it's a major reason why people buy the paper.

Mancini's agent is now saying that "he may not leave after all".

Sigh.

agree with SR above, inter were dirty and it is reasonable to point this out. two years ago, materazzi crushed juan pablo sorin's face with an elbow as inter were eliminated from this competition. one year ago they were eliminated amidst a mass brawl against valencia. they finished the tie against liverpool with eight yellows, two reds and one mutiny. i'd say discipline was a problem.

lets not forget what they got up to in 2005.

That was a really poor game. in the first half Liverpool were relying on Inter not being able to put anything together, rather than going out and giving it to them good and proper. They did have a couple of chances, but they were created by the vision of Cambiasso, and devil-may-care distribution of Rivas.

It was a great finish by torres, but I was not that impressed by chivu. He reacted to the presence of torres like an iraqi policeman would to the sight of a down syndrome kid in a bulky jacket.

Just how old is patrick vieira? he has physically deteriorated at a faster rate than nicky butt.

I'm pretty convinced that Chivu is a better player than he showed for Roma against Man United last season and over these two most recent legs against Liverpool.

One more lousy performance like those ones next season could easily sway me the other way however.

very few teams "go out and give it good and proper" to a side like inter in the first 20 minutes at the san siro. liverpool had a two goal lead and no need to go chasing the game at exactly the time when the pressure would be at its most intense. instead they kept their discipline and let inter and the crowd burn themselves out. when inter tired their tempo dropped, the pressure from the crowd slackened and liverpool could come out from the back with more confidence.

(Patrick Vieira) has physically deteriorated at a faster rate than nicky butt.

Of course Vieira did have a lot further to fall.
