    Should be a klaxon and then the game stops when the ball goes out of play. That would make for some nervy ends to a match.

    Real time clock, cut games to 60 minutes, et voila. Average games are about 56m iirc so we'd actually get more football.

    Without doubt it is. Doesn't mean the ref should be immune to criticism.

    Not that I expected any different but it was good of Ronaldo to celebrate respectfully.

    Never been convinced by Mourinho as a coach when he has to attack, especially in the big games. His teams always prefer to play on the break. That's one reason why Benitez's Liverpool did so well against his Chelsea, because they'd sit back home and away, not giving them a chance to counter and then it's a case of who can nick a goal or penalties.

    They created little from open play tonight, the saves De Gea made were ones you'd expect him to make apart from the Coentrao one which was world class.

    They've scored plenty in La Liga but that's because the gap in quality is so big. Even then, the matches they've lost have usually been because they couldn't break down the opposition and conceded on the break or a set piece.

    I expect Ferguson will have Utd sit back at OT, put the onus on Madrid to attack and back his team to shut them out and hit them on the break. I make Utd 60/40 favourites at 1-1.

    Good game though, tense and absorbing. Referee bottled the Evra decision though and blowing early at the end was stupid, apart from that he was good.

    I don't think an obvious red card and an early whistle are standard complaints.

    Did you see the game? The referee was poor.

    Still a great result for United though.

    Ref totally bottled the challenge on Evra, clear red card, could have really changed the game.

    I think the final whistle was fair enough, refs are only supposed to add to extra time when substitutions, injuries and goals occur. United were happy at 1-1 and deliberately taking their time, and ran the clock down before taking the kick. It might not happen often, but I think its the correct call.

    I am a (fading) Liverpool supporter, but that photo is great ...

    ... hope he comes back to Manchester United when his contract comes to an end (in summer 2014?).

    Missed this last night - play doesn't stop for set pieces, unless there is a longer than normal delay (such as an injury or fracas in the area).

    Fair enough, didn't realise that. It's unusual for the ref to stop a corner being taken, especially in a close game when there's still a few seconds on the clock. The whistle is very rarely blown exactly on time. I've seen it stopped at a corner in a game where the team were winning easily, and I've seen the ball stopped in mid-flight from a corner, which also caused a bit of an uproar. It was an unusual time to end the game, it surely wouldn't have happened if the corner was at the other end of the pitch.

    It's unusual sure, but certainly fair

    2-1 Arsenal this leg, we'll lose the tie though.

    I really don't trust Bayern to get the job done after last year's final. Fucking muppets.
