Is currently the main man of Italy. After scoring two goals for his Milan in the CL-final vs. Liverpool Ancelotti has again hailed Pipo Inzaghi as one of the best finishers ever seen in the game of football. Sure, he’s deadly when he get the chance as he did when he rounded Pepe Reina for 2-0, but the first goal is even more stereotypical for Pipo to me, Pirlo shot a freekick that found the goal via THE HAND of Inzaghi, not cool. Shouldn’t have been a goal if you ask me, I’ve watched it a couple of times on YouTube this morning, and it’s pretty obvious that it should have been disallowed – the reason being that the ball changed direction when it hit his hand, deliberate or not – it’s not supposed to be a goal if it changes direction, which it clearly did.
But, Liverpool will have to pay for their mistakes again. Mistake numero uno was putting Zenden on the pitch from the start, he should barely have made my squad if I was Benitez, I’m not saying that Kewell would have been the superior choice, rather that Speedy Gonzales was on the bench, why wasn’t he used? With probably around 10 scouts on Milan, the Liverpool staff must have known that the chances of Zenden (who don’t possess speed anymore) coming around on the outside of Oddo is close to 0%. But still, I’d trade Speedy, Kewell and Zenden plus a million or two to get Vicente any day of the week.
We should have finished them in the first half, Kuyt and Gerrard both had really good chances to give Liverpool the lead, but both failed. We paid very expensive for our individual mistakes! First half was a class display from one team, Liverpool – second half was more Milan vs. the clock. Nesta, Ambrosini, Gattuso (not the iron-man after all) and Inzaghi was all down with “severe injury”, Nesta even signalled to be substituted! … all of them was of course just down to make the time run out. Liverpool would have done the same if they were in the lead, I’m sure of it, however, it’s fucking annoying just because they’re all Italians. Bastards.
