No that was the season before. And technically Enckelmann didn't score the own goal as he didn't make contact with the ball, it was from Mellbergs throw in.

i got lots of jibes and wind-ups from my cousins and family friends after that match but i had the last laugh when gary cahills scissor kick effectively relegated birmingham last season. What goes around comes around eh!

Disappointing, but not totally unexpected, from BBC Sport...



Larsson snubs Man Utd extension

Henrik Larsson will not extend his loan period at Manchester United and is set to leave the club next month.
The 35-year-old Swedish striker, who began his loan spell with the Premiership leaders in January, will return to Helsingborg on 12 March.

no real big surprises today, except arsenal's defeat at the hands of psv.

arsenal is just impossible to predict this year.

and on another note, if today's performance doesn't help beckham's chances into getting back into the england squad i don't know what will.

Wow 4 out of 4 wrong last night, even by my tipping standards thats.
It would seem as though a certain part of france has never heard of Hillsborough, the french old bill steaming into United fans as some were trying to get out of an overcrowded stand, & then showering them with tear gas, well done PLOD! & then as if to compound matters lille threaten a walk out, & United players are pelted with missiles, lets ALL be honest about this, if those scenes happened at ANY English stadium, UEFA would have acted before midnight to lob the English club out, one rule for one, & another for the rest? Cynical, Moi?
I do personally think lille's goal should have stood, but that doesn't excuse the actions later, UEFA HAVE GOT to act swiftly, & harshly!

If UEFA swallow this SHIT, all hope is LOST...

Puel defends Lille actions
By Mark Buckingham - Created on 21 Feb 2007


Claude Puel insists his Lille players were not intending to walk off during the defeat to Manchester United.


So WTF were they doing, going for a slice of orange! Platini has got his first major decision to make, he'd better not show any home bias!

To threaten to walk off the pitch is so childish and petulant i think that Platini has to give some sort of punishment towards Lille. I can understand that they feel a bit aggreived because they deserved to get something out of that match. I can also empathise with how pissed off they are with Uniteds goal as Thierry Henry did it at Villa Park a couple of seasons ago and it's very frustrating. However it is the rules, i personally think it's a stupid rule and that football should be played to the whistle but that's a different argument.

Walking off the pitch and then throwing missiles at the united players is absolutely shameful and they did it on the biggest club stage of all and in the biggest game of their history. And i haven't even mentioned their incompetence in sorting out the away fans end...

It has been alleged that Lille officials are ready to file a protest and if this does indeed prove to be the case, then Uefa is ready to rule on the issue this coming Friday.

So its not just wenger, & henry who are totally ungracious in defeat, it would seem to be a national pastime!!!

massive win for liverpool today. i think it's fair to say barca are in disarray at the moment...

speaking of being hard to predict, liverpool haven't been a lot easier to figure out if they're gonna forward a superb or dreadful side.

Well done Liverpool, brilliant result. I found myself cheering liverpool on towards the end of that match, which is something i never normally do. Seemed like the barca players were complaining a lot during the game and i don't really want them to win the tournament again.

After the first 20 mins i though liverpool were going to take a battering but credit to them, they fought back really well. Bellamy played very well too.

Sometimes they play really poorly in the league but liverpool just seem to have this European pedigree that gives them an super-human ability to beat teams that on paper are clearly better than them. I wish the england team had that!

england's problem is the opposite... on paper people think they're better than the opposing sides, but they almost never play to their potential.

...or maybe they're just not as good as we think they should be.
