Bayern Beats United

Bayern beat United and took a spot in the Champion’s League Semi-Finals on away goals.  I know, that’s a crappy way to lose, but you’ve got to have a tie-breaker when you’re doing aggregate scoring.  Anyways…

United seems to think that the Germans were doing something that ONLY Germans do.  I mean, they may be pesky, but I don’t think that the Germans have the market cornered on “things people don’t like”.

Alex Ferguson complained after the defeat that the Germans were complaining to the referee about issuing a yellow card to Rafael.  That was to be his second and would have resulted in his ejection.

I don’t even care whether you like it or not.  Soccer players do this crap all the time.  They constantly lobby officials, fake injuries, sell contact that never happened, and a bunch of other stuff that’s annoying.  However, the Germans are NOT the only people who do this kind of stuff.  Oh, and when the Bayern President Uli Hoeness spoke about it he got it right:

“We lost in 1999 but we lost like gentlemen.  Now United should do the same. It’s an overreaction on his part maybe because he was disappointed to lose.”

“Normally he is a fine gentleman but I think what he has said is not right. We were honest and cool in Barcelona and they should be the same.”

“We lost in 1999 but we lost like gentlemen.  Now United should do the same. It’s an overreaction on his part maybe because he was disappointed to lose.”

“Normally he is a fine gentleman but I think what he has said is not right. We were honest and cool in Barcelona and they should be the same.”

“I can understand the reaction from Ferguson but he is wrong.  We did not put pressure on the ref to send off the player – it was just the right decision by him.

“I think more United players should have been booked. In football, you don’t always get what you deserve, but in this game we showed enormous resilience.”

“It’s not easy to come back from 3-0 down against United but over 180 minutes we deserved the result.”

United is wrong.  Wrong, wrong, wrong.  Need I say more?
