Galatasaray v Real Madrid - 9th April

Postby Hams » Sun Apr 07, 2013 2:37 pm

Real Madrid won the 1st leg 3-0 at the Bernabeu and have a comfortable lead to take to Istanbul.
Galatasaray have appealed to UEFA over Yilmaz ban and hope that their striker will be able to take part.
Sergio Ramos won't be available and some say he deliberately picked up a yellow in the 1st leg so he would be banned.

Do you have any comments or predictions for the 2nd leg? - Is it all over for the Turkish side or could they get back into it?

FT

Galatasaray 3-2 Real Madrid (Agg 3-5)
0-1 Ronaldo 8’
1-1 Eboué 57’
2-1 Sneijder 70’
3-1 Drogba 72'
3-2 Ronaldo 90'

Real Madrid go through to the semi finals but were well outplayed in the 2nd half.

When Gala were 3-1 up on 72 minutes it looked like the Turks were going to go on and win the tie but they ran out of steam.

Any comments on todays result?

[quote="eaman"]come on specnur im sure theres been a few incidents of bad tackles gone unpunished on white players as well. cant think of any at the moment but i know theres some. can anyone think of any. are you calling the officials racist[/quote]

Yes!

Not in the purest sense of the word ,but without question race is a factor that comes into a lot of how they handle physical play between white and black players ,mots of which i think is subconscious and that they don't even know what they are doing is racist.
For example i pointed out about a year ago how i noticed that black players seem to get straight yellow cards for first infractions at a higher rate than non black players! Now take into consideration that i have been, and continue to be, a man who is proud of how inclusive of league has become and why that it's diversity is the sole reason for it's position as the best in the world. But that does not mean that it doesn't have flaws and this tendency to be bias in certain instances is one of them.
We can pretty much accept that i do not have an agenda against the premiership ,but just giving an honest observation of what i have seen over the last 10 years.
I will also say that this tendency goes as far as the international level but not as extreme ,it's just seems to be "human nature" to a lot of them!
