why... whoever he wants. he is john terry and he's won the double.
That's reserved for the treble.
It was a great game though, Demba Ba of all people, haha!
I am so ready for liverpool Man city on Sunday! Not so ready for the 230 am kickoff though, lol.
Do you live in Hawaii or something? The game starts at 7:30 here in Texas. I'd actually prefer a 2:30 start than the 7:30 start, but I work nights
As for tomorrow's games, bayern should win easily, but that barça/athletico game will be sick! Can't wait for that one
Definitley, Barca really needs to make the most out of this years Champions League run with the upcoming transfer bans. They really needed to add some depth to the back line in the next transfer window.
Pretty much hoping LP man city ends 5 on 5 with red cards galore, lol.
Will be interesting to see the draw Friday. No soft sides left so what will be will be.
Well, Barcelona simply got outplayed today. They should have lost by a lot more. Atletico has a very solid team this year and they have Barca's number. Diego Costa was out today and they still worked them.
We have a final four of Bayern, Atletico Madrid, Real Madrid, and Chelsea. As long as Real Madrid doesn't win, I wont complain too much. I wouldn't mind seeing a Bayern vs. Chelsea re-match at this point, and I wouldn't be too upset if Atletico wins it this season.
If the Ter Stegen deal to Barcelona gets blocked with the transfer ban, they will be in real trouble. No matter what their back 4 is going to be thin next season, and the depth got exposed today with Bartra starting.
So much for Barcelona bouncing back from last season. Their defense has looked poor all year, but usually has the pressure removed because they score so Much. Atl Madrid have a very strong defense can can cause any of the remaining teams some trouble.
Is Diego Costa going to get any playing time with Spain this Summer in Brazil? I'd like to see it. He has only had one opportunity to play with La Roja so far. I'd imagine he would hear a lot of boos if he saw the pitch in Brazil.
I think he should get a lot of playing time, he's really the best striker Spain has right now. He should be the starting striker for Brazil, but they never gave him any lucks (I have no idea why). I don't blame him for switching to Spain.
Costa is probably the only guy in world who was choosing between first and second place in the WC. lol.
Brazil is just unreal in pure talent.
Spain hates to play true holding strikers but Costa would really add a dimension up top.
I'd love Costa at Chelsea obviously.
Wish Chelsea had gotten Cavani or Falcao but the trouble for Chelsea is if they can't get a top 10 striker any attempt to improve is pointless with the talent they already have being so good.
From the dailymail:
Chelsea to face Courtois as UEFA tell Blues they can't stop Atletico keeper playing
UEFA have told Chelsea they cannot stop their own goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois playing against them in the Champions League semi-finals.
The 21-year-old Belgian, in the third season of a loan from Stamford Bridge to Atletico Madrid, found himself in the middle of a huge contract row after the two clubs were pitted against each other by Friday morning’s draw.
Atletico say there is a clause in his loan agreement stipulating they would have to pay a total of £5million to field him in both legs. But a strongly worded UEFA statement on Friday insisted the clause contravenes their regulations and so cannot be applied.
Both clubs are keen to resolve the issue, knowing their relationship will be key to their transfer dealing this summer. Atletico want to secure another season-long loan deal for the Belgium international next season, while Chelsea want to sign Diego Costa from the Vicente Calderon Stadium and are said to be watching midfielder Arda Turan.
One way of resolving the issue could see Atletico reducing Costa’s £32million release clause this summer to help Chelsea sign the star.
That would mean Atletico would not be required to directly pay Chelsea any money, though such a move would be open to scrutiny.

So I'm hearing that Kompany injured himself in practice today and might not be able to play tomorrow
This sucks! He might be the most important player when playing a team like Liverpool
You don't have faith in Demichelis or Lescott?
Hell of a first half, Anfield is rocking this season. Mignolet just stoned Fernandinho. I have never seen a team score so many goals in the first 10 mins of a game throughout a season.
It was a great save, but Fernandinho didn't get much on it due to slipping as he kicked. Losing Toure hurts Man City and they were struggling even before he left. Liverpool is in the drivers seat in this game and for the remainder of the season.
He definitely slipped, but it was well placed. I thought City were gaining some momentum at the end as well.
