Good GOD! Trust me, people, Schalke fully deserved it. They were definitely the better team over both legs. Do not underestimate them, Man Utd.
Im not underestimating them, but i don't think they'll be as hard as Chelsea. Plus, Inter aren't exactly hard to beat at the moment.
agreed..inter were lucky to get past bayern, they're not as good as they were last year.. however any semi-final is tough and it'll be a hard game for us
Hoping to see a good semi-final between united-schalke, I hope it is better than Barca-madrid :)
Schalke has Raul. He still surprise me. Fantastic player!
How many goals does he have in CL?
5 this year and 77 in total. I did the wikipedia work for you :)
totally agree.. it suprised me a lot how fast he was on this match. some people just refuse to get older!
He should probably finish his career in Scahlke, he's got a new life.
some people just refuse to get older!
Ryan Giggs knows all about that ;)
midway through the second half, I saw Raul chase down an overhit long ball to the touch line trying to prevent a goal kick and was totally amazed at how fast he reached it. Half of having pace is having the determination to go that fast (Usain Bolt) and it seems Raul is still as determined as ever.
Inter got outclasses by a mid table side in Germany. Also Raul still has it.
Their Bundesliga position is deceptive IMO. I feel that has more to do with problems with Felix Magath. They're usually up there challenging for the title, even though they haven't won it since before it became the Bundesliga. So, they're like the German Liverpool.
Felix situation really disturbed their season. Should be higher up the table but some of the players/staff were distracted
Seems like the Italian league is really weak.
Congrats to Schalke, They deserve it
Fantastic performance, saw the second half of the game.. was bored by Spurs performance.
When Schalke won the UEFA Cup in 1997, they did it in a penalty shootout... with none other than Jens Lehmann in goal.
i know we shouldnt underestimate them but if united dont beat them it would be a shock. barca - man u final.
haha can't imagine the final being Barca vs. Schalke, that would be a massacre.
stranger thing have happened in football... they'd probably do a porto and win it if they got to the final.. but that wont happen so its all good
If Schalke beat United especially in the Semis, That would count as the biggest upset ever!
Porto won over Monaco, which both were not really superior in Europe. this year, Schalke is definitely the underdog and even if they manage to beat MU, (which is a hard task to do considering MU's recent form) I can't imagine they can ever overcome Real or Barca! beating Valencia (best of the rest in Spain) and Inter which is very inconsistent in Serie A aren't really a sign of strength for Schalke where they are also struggling themselves this season.
Schalke are dangerous, doubt they have the quality to make it to the final though
Schalke have a slim hope of winning the actual competition
It would be good to see the underdog win the CL. Not at the expense of united though :P
