Saturday, May 22, 2010 is going into history records not just because Bayern Munich, German giants are meeting the Nerazzurris(it means"the black and blue ones" in Italian) Inter Milan but that Teacher(Van Gaal) and and Student(Mourinho) are going to meet. They've both worked together in Spain. The nerrazurris are favorites after beating defending champions Barcelona(another Spanish giant) in the Semi Finals. It was not just unexpected and unbelievable that Mourinho's boys would beat Barca 3-1 in the first leg, it was shameful. I learnt Barca hasn't been beaten that way before away or at home. The night I watched the 2nd leg(yes watched), I was rooting for Inter and I knew with the way they played Chelsea(my club), won the first leg, they would do their best to win Barcelona which they did. I was ecstatic. I had Barca friends who made jest of Chelsea when they lost to Inter both home and way so I had something to hold against them.
I'm not rooting for Inter this time, I'm all for Bayern. They deserve to be champions in my opinion, they play good, experienced and entertaining football. So come 8:40pm tommorrow, I'm going to watch that historical match. Even though Frank Ribery won't be playing, after collecting a red card for challenging a Lyon player in their Semi-final match(1st leg), I can say that the French International won't be missed not with the likes of Arjen Robben, Olic in the match. Inter milan will have their hands full. Inter players are also talented, don't get me wrong but they are not as disciplined,experienced as Bayern players plus they(Inter) have had luck on their side, that and their toublesome coach. I gotta say that that match would be a must not miss.
I don't think I can ever understand or remember when I started liking football. Friends ask me but I can only say its inexplicable. It might be the joys, thrills and most times heartache when u see a favourite team win or loose or the fact that the sexiest guys *winks* play the game. I can do anything for football, anything. I love it!!!
