    A comment on Guardian about Pep shouting the whole 5 minutes before PK shootout while Carlo told Lunin to study with goalkeeping coach about PK spots City takers often shoot to:

    ______

    A game of details where calmness needed to prevail.

    Contrast this : during preparation for the penalties you can see Guardiola ...... being Guardiola - hyperactive shouting at his players during the huddle and that shouting huddle lasted the entire 5 minutes until they went to throw the coin.

    In a separate shot, as players were coming off the pitch at the end of extra time, the first thing Ancelotti did was to head straight for his goalkeeper and remind him to go and see the goalkeeping coach to re-study where the Manchester City players usually place their penalties - the shot continues and you see the goalkeeper going up two rows of seats to sit down with the goalkeeping coach, on their own, away from the mayhem. Separately Ancelotti goes back to the rest of his players, convenes a huddle, says one or two things that take no longer than 20 seconds, huddle, and then walks away leaving them to calmly concentrate listening to his assistant explaining who will be taking the penalties.

    Did that win it ?

    I think so. Unnerved by the thoughtlessness of the Manchester City supporters keeping the ball in the stands, and pumped up for 5 minutes by his hyperactive manager, Bernardo Silva loses all calmness in the face of this unusual situation : instead of staying on the spot waiting for someone to give him the ball he races beyond the goalline to get the ball from the supporters, places it and goes for his penalty without settling down, without re-thinking what he really wanted to do with THIS goalkeeper - this in turn was made worse by the calm goalkeeper, his coach's notes fresh in his mind, not moving one inch, banking on Silva attempting to chip in in the middle. Surreal. That was the turning point as it then put Kovacic under pressure.

    I admire Guardiola, one of the best coaches in the World, without question, but you have to be amazed by the very best of them, Ancelotti - stunning calmness !

    Please watch that full interview of Jude w/Rio and Lescott. Guy’s answers are phenomenal and as always Rio shows mad love to him and Madrid.

    This is like the wholesome version of Adebayor with Arsenal fans.

    Jude pointed out Carlo giving players creative freedom as a positive as opposed to rigid systems limiting players. Guess he was sympathizing with his ex Dortmand pal Haaland there.

    RM have knocked out defending champions in 98 (Dortmund), 2000 (Man Utd), 2002 (Bayern), 2014 (Bayern), 2022 (Chelsea) and 2024 (City) in CL era. RM went on to win the CL in all the previous occassions when this happened in CL era.

    Amazing tweet from the legend.

    “Real Madrid is the man who stands up at his own funeral and kills the priest” :D

    One of the most ridiculous games in recent memory. Nothing about it makes sense.

    What Henry is trying to say is he's happy Manchester City didn't make it. :D

    It's funny seeing him try to justify his bias though.

    City failed to beat Arsenal and Chelsea at home this season. They struggle to break down teams who defend with quality players well organized. Nothing new for Pep either. 10 men Inter and 10 men Chelsea did that against greatest Barcelona side coached by Pep.

    People here weren't happy with us sitting in front of our goal though.

    In hindsight everybody gives our team a pat on the back but during the game it was a meltdown about us sitting deep.

    Myself and few others were fine with us sitting back and protecting 1-0 lead. Just pissed Carlo didn't make any subs after 60 mins even though the likes of Kroos looked gassed. He only brought in Modric and Brahim after City made it 1-1.

    I am glad City didn't try to shoot from outside the box much after having a lot of success with it in the past vs RM. Foden tried once and didn't bother after that went well over and Rodri had a tame effort with his left foot.
