Arsenal 0-0 Villarreal
So Juan Riquelme got a penalty in the very last minute of the game, harshly, then giving the very nervy face, stepped up..and yea, he missed. Ahh, well. It was a really really open game, in fact one of the most one sided semi finals i have ever witnessed. Villarreal stacked almost up to 5 people in Arsenal's half and camped throughout the match. But poor finishing and lack of composure costs Villarreal more than dearly. The dude..erm i think his name is Guillermo Franco, missed 2 glorious chances and ought to be shot. So they hung on, and are in the Finals of th Champions League '06, to gay Paris! Good luck Gunners, all the best when facing either Ronaldinho or Shevchenko.
And What Of Henry......
He deserved all my respect, the egg-head assasin. He pulled 2 commentators from SkySports and instead of saying how happy he is with the results, he in turn gave Liverpool captain, Steven Gerrard his praise. He said how Stevie G was an inspiration to him and how much he deserved the PFA Player of the Year award. Cheers Thierry H. Wouldn't want to see you in blue and red stripes! Not that soon though! And..reminded me of something. Anybody remember Stevie G's assist to him when L'Pool lost 2-1 to Arsenal...........no wonder he praised him..............
Wenger, Oh Wenger.......
How times change. Says Arsene Wenger in April 2005:
"The championship is the only competition where the quality of the team is reflected after 38 games. The Champions League has now completely become a cup competition. Everybody can win it. Last year you had Porto and Monaco. Every year you will have two different teams in the final because it is so open. It's like last year, when Millwall were in the FA Cup final. Next year, you could have Coventry."
Judging by last night's performance, that's exactly who we do have.
Drogballs: So this is the one person that be-littled success in cup games. And how these words might come back and haunt him. I think if Arsenal's not in the Finals, their season would be described in a word, disappointing.
So What Did I Do.........
I know, i know. This update is a little late. I was in school almost the whole day, then met Alina for dinner at Dino....so she ( or was it me?) that suggested catching a movie..since we've got nothing to do. Actually we're heading for AMK alrdy, but she said she dont know where's TPY's Courts as she's gonna work there on Friday. So as a very nice person (*cough*), i suggested we go TPY Central and look for it, while we cld catch a movie over there, one stone, 2 birds, more birds more luck..........oh out of point. Anyway found it without much trouble, not as deep into the Central as we thought, so we catched the Hongkong movie, "Elections 2". Overall....not too bad la. Some scenes made me chukle while some made her sqiurm like a worm(I SHALL NOT SPOIL). If only it was of a bigger gang war. Seemed to me that it was a gang of 10 vs a gang of 12. HAHA.
More updates to follow tomorrow, including AC Milan vs Barcelona and Liverpool vs West Ham Utd. Cya !
