I guess we'll see eh.
I just mentioned that to a friend of mine, but I said the rivalry between Liverpool and ourselves is greater than Leeds and United. Handing United a 19th title wouldn't sit well with the fans, so the 12th man - the crowd definitely won't turn up for Chelsea. Not to mention Chelsea are actually much better team than Liverpool. Not feeling too confident but you ever know.

Plus Sunderland away is a hard game.

Blackburn had to beat Liverpool at Anfield to win the title on the last day of the season in 1995. They didn't and Liverpool won. The Liverpool fans could have booed them then but they didn't.

As it happened West Ham beat Utd and Blackburn won it anyway but I think to suggest that a team's fans would boo their own players on the last home game of the season is a little far fetched no matter who your rivals are.

Drew 0-0, but yeah fair point there. I would've been 4 but I recall my dad watching.

Spurs 1-0 Manchester United, Les Ferdinand. The Spurs fans booed their team and when we scored, they cheered. So it's not far fetched, that's why I said it could happen..

The suggestion of goal difference.. If it comes down to goal difference we're fucked.

Barcelona v. Milan.
The sending off was a fucking disgrace.
Sergio Busquets should be banned from the final should Barcelona win this match...which I pray to God they don't.
Just for that show of play acting alone, Barcelona don't deserve a place in the final.
Cheating Bastards!

Come on Milan.

The way I see it, Barca cheated their way to the last final as well, so this is nothing new in my eyes. I'm only going by the BBC text updates, but I've heard Inter are controlling things ok (even with 10 men). With any luck, Inter for the final.

That'll be on the B side for when we're knocked out.
