Pippo Inzaghi! Superstar! Well...


"There was Turkish Delight for Liverpool in Istanbul in 2005, but tonight there is only Greek tragedy... Stop laughing Eamon!"


Above lies a verbatim quote from good ould Bill O' Herlihy after the match on RTE this evening. Shite pun. Dunphy laughing sarcastically. Desperate match. However, Liverpool deserve serious credit for the enormous effort they gave. The aimless bluster of Pennant and Kuyt et al was at least honest until tiredness and a blaringly obvious chasm in class began to show. In some areas of their team, not most. On the other hand, Milan deserve credit for the clinical way in which they took the win whilst also playing quite terribly. Kaka is imperious, without equal at the moment in world football. Inzaghi is a freakish goal poaching anomaly. Maldini is immortal. Well, really old... Liverpool? Slightly unlucky to lose, although they were not helped by their own inadequacies during the game. AC Milan? Slightly lucky to win, but I mean come on, they're Italian!
So that's another season then. Sigh. Perhaps Benitez should think about building a team around Zenden next season? Sorry, could not resist...
