Lucky....Yes, good keeping yes.....

Generally speaking a keeper doesn't control where the striker kicks the

It's an official save for Reina, unorthodox, but I'm sure he controlled
where he positioned himself, had be been a foot either way its a goal!!!

You might be taking that in a different way to what I mean, though your
opinion is respected!!!

It's called home field advantage. And if you think that sort of magic
doesn't happen at Camp Nou, you ought to change your tinted glasses.

But he signed recently (about 2 weeks ago) a new contract with Lille. He is
under contract until 2014 now. He will be expensive.
He is working hard to improve himself and the team, doesn't play divas and
doesn't seem to be in a hurry to leave for a greater club where he will have
to fight for a starting position.

I predict him a boring great career.

Of course, it only takes an agent (or a club president) promising him loads
and loads of money to change all that, but he seems to be more levelheaded
than your average teenage prodigy. I don't see him leaving Lille before

From: Chagney Hunt on

The whining is more than ludicrous.

1. The Penalty: Ball in Lucas' possession, leg sticking out, missed
ball, a split second later, Lucas' leg connected. Academically
speaking, that was a foul hence a penalty. Lucas could have made extra
effort to avoid contact (which would have required athleticism that
would be questionable considering that he is Lucas), but that wouldn't
make it less a foul, only less obvious to the ref. Embellishment? Yes.
Blatant dive? No.
2. Kuyt's foul: OK... I don't know what the linesman saw, or didn't
see. It looked to me like a foul, from an angle that was opposite to
the linesman and away from the ball. Is it worth making a new Rashomon
out of it?
3. Lille were simply overmatched. They looked psyched out, lacking in
experiences for big match to me. No legit goal canceled, no break
called off for wrongful offside, no questionable pen uncalled --
what's their claim to being robbed?
