When it comes to diving I think it's far to judge the player for past behavior. If someone has a history of diving in the box it should make the official think twice before giving the penalty.

I don't think Ashley Young has gotten pk this year after all the diving last year.

against his former team for the 1-0 win


that's 3 points right their

Ashley Young is almost Cristiano Ronaldo skilled at diving. Almost.

What makes that dive so great is it was against a team he played 4 years for. Pure Class

Cristiano Ronaldo by volume is the greatest diver of all time

Well, it is soccer we're talking about, I mean to use a similar example, while still playing together on Man U, Ronaldo was lobbying to get a card for Rooney in international play (don't remember if it was WC or not) These guys really don't care about allegiances.

BvB through to the final. Real gave it a run at the end there, but too little too late....

Yup came up one short in the end.

Barca needs an even bigger miracle. Wonder how Bayern will handle it. Wish I could watch the match.

What a brutal beat down.
Glad this wasnt the final, but still something you don't expect in a semi.

Definitely not in a semi, and not from Barcelona at the Nou Camp. I doubted they were going to win the tie what with the fact that the fortress Nou could only bail them out so many times but heck. Bayern looked like the club chasing the tie rather than the one sitting on a mountain of goals. They were absolutely ruthless in wanting to kill Barcelona off completely.

I'd like to see BvB win it all just because of the way they put that team together but Bayern seem insurmountable at the moment.
