    I personally can't wait till euro 2008, so we can get a break from this club vs club hot air....

    what is it about club football ?, brings out the moron in the fans of the respective teams.

    Also the best teams in the world are the international teams.....France would knock the crap out of any club team....and Argentina would likewise run rings around Man U or Liverpool.

    Whereas in club football we have to put up with managers like Alex 'will not talk to the bbc' Ferguson, Arsene 'i did not see it' Wenger, and Rafa 'squad rotation' Benitez. And to cap it all we get anonymous brown-nosing managers like curbishley getting newspaper columns.

    And very good players like Christiano 'he's still a show pony' Ronaldo are turned into messianic figures all because the defending in the English premier league is pi$$ poor.

    Let's see how many goals he gets and how many of those stepovers work for him at euro 2008 where there are no easy games (apart from the hosts), and some great defensive units on show.

    Roll on euro 2008 for the enjoyment of the game.

    As for the offside rule....i personally would prefer to get rid of the interfering with play bit completely. The rule should be changed to the recepient of the pass being the only player who comes into the offside equation. That way, the chelsea goal stands becuase drogba neither receives the ball, nor is he the intended recpeient. If he receives the ball or debirately obstructs the keeper it's a freekick. Otherwise it stands as a goal.

    The biggest problem with the offside rule is equivalent to adjudicating a runout cricket. It's virtually impossible to judge tight decisions with the naked eye in real-time....when the linesman raises his flag for a tight decision he's in a 50-50 frame of mind each and every time.

    It would be ideal to leave it to technology to decide....unfortunatly replays would use up too much time, so my recommendation would be for the offside rule to only come into play in the first and last third of the pitch. That way you've got a line before which offside does not apply. There should be a dedicated offside linesperson patrolling the first and last third waiting to adjudicate those decisions.

    That way you don't get these situations were linesmen are struggling to keep up with play.

    Thing is, it was your own player that made the prawn sandwich reference so as a Liverpool fan i find it quite hillarious Truth be told though, the atmosphere at Old Trafford is poor, didn't Ferguson accuse the fans this year of just turning up and waiting for something to happen instead of going there and supporting the team?

    Yeah I was quite surprised at that score, didnt see the game but I watched the scores coming in and couldnt help wondering if it was done as some kind of "protest" by the Man City players about Svens situation
