    The year is 2015 and little bluenose Duncan is talking to his bluenose Dad.

    SON "Dad, my mates in school told me that Liverpool won the European Cup for the 5th time in 2005 - are they right dad?

    DAD "Yes son, it's true, but they were dead lucky son, all the way through the tournament"

    SON "Why dad?"

    DAD "Well in the group stages ....."

    SON "What dad, did they have a team from Azerbaijan, Israel, and Ireland in their group?"

    DAD "Well no, they had Monaco, Deportivo la Coruna, and Olympiakos"

    SON "Well they still sound like 3 easy teams to me dad"

    DAD "Actually Monaco reached the final the year before, Olympiakos had won their league 7 times out of the previous 8 seasons, and Deportivo finished above the galacticos of Real Madrid in their league".

    SON "Jeez dad, that sounds like quite a difficult group then".

    DAD "yeh I suppose your right son, but they were still lucky - it took a mi**** shot by Gerrard against Olympiakos to get through".

    SON "oh is that the goal were your hero Andy Gray goes berserk shouting "you beauty, you beauty, what a hit son, what a hit!!!!"

    DAD "yes son it is"

    SON "oh ok. Well what happened in the last 16 dad, who did they draw?"

    DAD "Bayer Leverkusen"

    SON "Bayer who?"

    DAD "Exactly son, but they had beaten Real Madrid 3-0 at home, and won their group that included Dinamo Kiev and Roma too."

    SON "****** hell dad, they sound good".

    DAD "yes, I suppose you're right son"

    SON "so did they win on away goals or something"

    DAD "errrrr, no, they won both legs 3-1 each"

    SON "oh - well who next then dad"

    DAD "Juventus"

    SON "How the f*** did they get past them Dad?"

    DAD "Well they did - they won 2-1 at home, and cruised to a 0-0 away draw without Juve having hardly any chances".

    SON "were Juve sh#t at that time - had all their decent players gone or something?"

    DAD "well actually they still had players like Del Piero, Nedved, Ibrahimovic, Thuram, and Buffon in the side. And they won Serie A a few weeks later."

    SON "wow, they beat the Italian champions elect - which **** easy team did they get in the semi then?"

    DAD "Chelsea"

    SON "Chelsea - for f#cks sake - what a **** easy draw - they've won nothing, Everton have won more than them".

    DAD "well that season they won the Premiership and League Cup but the Red ****e didn't let them score in 180 minutes of football"

    SON "Jesus Christ - so Liverpool beat the English Champions elect too"

    DAD "yes son, they ****** well did".

    SON "so after all that I suppose all the good teams had been knocked out"

    DAD "not quite son, AC Milan awaited them in the final"

    SON "no way - aren't they the 2nd most successful team in the competition's history".

    DAD "yes son they are"

    SON "so were Liverpool lucky because Milan had all their good players out with injuries"

    DAD "no - they had Shevchenko, Crespo, Maldini, Nesta, Cafu, Kaka, Stam, Dida, Gattuso, Pirlo, and Seedorf".

    SON "your 'avin a laff"

    DAD "it gets worse son, Milan were cruising 3-0 up at half-time".

    SON "what happened, did they have 3 men sent off in the second half - how did Liverpool get back into the game?"

    DAD "no, Milan had no men sent off, the Red ****e scored 3 goals in 6 minutes"

    SON "against the best defence in Europe"

    DAD "yes!!!, against the best defence in Europe"

    SON "so what happened next - extra time?"

    DAD "yes son, and Dudek made the luckiest save ever to stop a Shevchenko shot from a yard"

    SON "why was it lucky dad - did it hit him on the a***, nose, shoulder or something"

    DAD "no son, his hand"

    SON "well aren't goalies meant to save shots with their hands"

    DAD "yeah but that's besides the point"

    SON "then what"

    DAD "penalties!"

    SON "English teams are crap at penalties"

    DAD "not this f#ckin time they weren't - they only missed one. And that's how Liverpool became the luckiest team to win the European Cup".

    SON "but I bet when they brought the cup home there was hardly anyone to watch as all Liverpool fans live anywhere but Liverpool you say. How many was there, 5,,000 or so?"

    DAD "1 million people lined the streets".

    SON "so let's get this straight dad - Liverpool had 3 good teams in their group, they then knocked out a team who had beaten Real Madrid 3-0, they then knocked out the future Serie A champions, then knocked out the future Premiership champions, before coming back from 3-0 down to beat the 2nd most successful club in Europe. And then the whole population of Liverpool came out to welcome them home!!!!

    DAD "that about sums it up son"

    SON "dad?"

    DAD "yes son"

    SON "can I have a Liverpool shirt for my birthday next week, and can you stop calling me Duncan - I'm Stevie from now on"

    this is for all you whiners!!!

    If every team you face would be analized like "oh, this team beat Madrid or Milan 3-0 that season in group stage!!", and more valued for that, football would have even less logic.

    Well when Milan won in 2003 they had beaten Real Madrid, Dortmund, Bayern Munich twice, Deportivo, Inter, and Juventus. People still say they didn't deserve it. In fact, Milan have beaten those teams, Manchester United twice and Barcelona. Yet, people still doubt that Milan is the best side in the world. Welcome to the club rookie.

    Except that was 2 years ago and you didn't beat either Inter or Juve, you were also completely outplayed by an average Ajax side.

    They were lucky, but in a way where we could all enjoy great football.

    I still can't believe how magical the CL Final was, and I'm not even a Liverpool Fan.

    Ok, I don't dislike LFC, but here is what I came up with. :)

    even Jamie Carr admits, LFC isn't a 38-match league winning team. :)

    Why do you hold a grudge against AC Milan? I've always seen you criticize them.

    that was a good one , long but good . Its time people stop knocking Liverpool because if it were chelsea, man utd or arsenal this all wouldn't be happening but they didn't win the CL did they ? I can't even see any of those teams coming back from 3-nil down because they would of all been crying like babies. God bless the Pool faithful.

    A grudge!!??? :confused: :confused:

    Before the final I wanted them to win, I think I made a few posts before hand on this saying I wanted a Milan victory in Istanbul (or maybe that was another forum).

    I have criticized Milan recently because some of their fans have claimed that liverpool were undeserving winners as they are not 'the best team in Europe'.They're right on that but they got as much luck as Milan 2 years ago. Champions luck. No-one could claim Milan were the best - they hadn't won lo scudetto for four years.
