A half-day off of work; a packed Liverpool bar on the Bowery; a fairly good game in a rowdy atmosphere. The shocking thing wasn't that Milan proved victorious, but that Liverpool looked for almost any given stretch of the match like the team who wanted it more, the team destined for glory. It wasn't the best game ever played by either team (and it was far, far from the worst), but Liverpool put a lot of fire and energy in their performance. Milan, to my eyes, not so much. If I were Rafa Benitez I would have subbed in Crouch in the 60th minute, and maybe Fowler (for Kuyt) in the 80th. Congrats to Milan though.
