Six Minutes of Madness

Trailing by three goals at half-time, Liverpool fought back to level the score with three goals in six minutes to shock AC Milan and take the match to extra-time which they eventually won on penalties 3-2. Liverpool is the new European Champions (argh! It hurts so much!). Some are suggesting this 'great escape' is comparable if not better than the two famous goals that snatched victory from the jaws of defeat in the most thrilling Champions League Final ever between Manchester United and Bayern Munich. Another final decided on tragic! Liverpool is now requesting for a place in next year's Champions League (which they didn't qualify) so they could defend the trophy. Anyways, congratulations to the Reds for being crowned the new European Champions...

  1. Wasn't this just magic, I am a rugby fan, but after watching this match, because my husband is a footie guy, I am a Liverpool fan. I laughed, I cried, I screamed, I jumped up and down, I danced around the tv: not bad for a middle aged gwailoh, eh.

    Liverpool forever, boycott Man U.
