|Bayern Munich||-||Manchester United|
There was probably a decree from UEFA about pushes in the box and the Bleeckere showed himself a good man and whistled every time a defender fell, even when it was a dive. But only in the box, all his other calls were good.
I don't like it when people say "he should have booked so and so", but he should have booked Scoles in the first half and that Bayern guy on the left, the tall guy who played awfully.
Frank has his spells of booking too often, but not in this match, in this match he was mild and relaxed. All the yellows were spot on
De Bleeckere counts his steps, points two players where they have to stand, waits till they do, whistles. This is a quarterfinal and this is the way to do it. The referee shouldn't rush it. But what happened in the end, after Bayern's second goal? Did the match end? How come Rooney was injured? When did that happen?
I was till loading the dishwasher when Rooney had already scored. Hey, this could very well become a great match. but it wasn't really. Bayern seems to lack a good forward. Especially in the first half you could see the difference: Bayern players running with the ball, going back and forth; Man U players pass, two kicks and the ball is in front of the Bayern goalie. But United played only well n the first 30 minutes. And there were some strange substitutions.
