  1. I hate the way people “boo” in europe, it freaking hurts my ears, it sounds like…..the most annoying sound in the world, like high pitch birds or insects or something, shouldn’t the “boo” be universal kinda like cheering?

    I know it usually only happens when a hated player has possession of the ball. sooooo annoying

  2. Lennon on the breakout counter, blows by Thiago like wind, serves up crouch on the squared ball across the face to beat the keeper, and Crouch made no mistake into the lower left corner

  3. I’ve been really impressed with the Ref of this match.

    Most ref’s couldn’t keep making the correct calls with this kind of crowd, with this kind of heated exchanges.


    oh man im so glad i put off going to the gym to finish watching this game, i can feel the heat/tension

    Modric coming on now. I dont like spurs but I but hate most of the AC Milan players right now after that two footed challenge which probably broke that spurs players leg.

  5. Flamini draws a yellow after flying in with 2 feet. He could have seen red for the challenge if it was in the middle of the field and more visible to the ref.

  6. Ibra with a dive at the edge of the box — the ref didn’t give him a card but gave him the diving hand gesture as he waved play on.

  7. Spurs bossing the game so far. Milan’s keeper is currently getting treatment after colliding with Crouch. Looks like he’ll be coming out of the game. If the replacement is better dealing with crosses, it’ll be a good thing for Milan. Crouch was causing problems for that guy.

  8. For those watching Spurs/Milan, do you hear what fans singing what sounds like something to the tune of “when the saints(spurs) go marching in”? Is that traveling Spurs fans? If so, impressive.
