Horse 763 - Not A Night I'd Like To Remember

With reference to Horse 754, football remains a cruel mistress. Last night I went to be early and set the alarm for 4am so that I could get up, drink tea, eat toast and have my heart broken two hours later. Clearly this post is late, and there has been plenty of discussion and rationalisation of the horrible minute, but It hurts!

You're a crook. You're a cheat and a swindler! That's what you are! How could you do a thing like this, build up a little boy's hopes and then smash all his dreams to pieces? You're an inhuman monster!

I'd say that Inzaghi's deflection was probably a handball, but if that wasn't a goal, then the second most definately was. Liverpool gave the match away to AC by playing a better class of football for about 44 minutes and then dropped their heads. It proves again the old adage that you can't win if you don't score. If Inzaghi wasn't credited with man of the match then I really don't know who else to give it to, except maybe Oddo who did play with ticker.

Fair dos to AC Milan, they made their chances count. It was a good cup win for them.
AC Milan 2 - Liverpool 1 - Bah 2 - Humbug! 1
