Subject: RE: BS: Football (not the U.S. kind)

I watched the game and found myself cheering away for Liverpool. They played extremely well but as Steve said , Messi was in the right place and at the right time. He's a little magician, very difficult to mark and explosive when he gets near the ball.

Liverpool tried all they knew to at least get that important away goal but the luck and an impressive Barca defence held them off.

It will be a hard night for them to recover but hey....anything is possible .

I was impressed by Joe Gomez's return from a long absence through injury. He is a very good player and will give Liverpool a new perspective when he reaches full fitness.

As for the other semi, spurs will need to be at their best. Ajax are a very good team,

Have a good time in Italy Steve. I will be in North Wales for the week
But I will be watching both games.
