UCL Quarter Finals 1.5 Scrute Style

UCL Quarter Finals 1.5 Scrute Style

Post by Binder Dunda » Fri, 05 Apr 2013 00:15:52


Yes I am aware of what Scrute means.

But i am going to do this preview Scrutineer style, with facts and
line ups and form and relevant stuff pertaining to the game.  I am not
going to go on about how I was able to last all winter and not get a
cold, but now feel like shit, because the fricking Iceberg is fricking
freezing still!  I will not tell you about how stupid I was, sitting
on the deck at the cottage, watching the Geese returning in glorious
sunshine and warmth on Saturday only to drink too much and stupidly
not realize, that by the time the sun went down, it was freezing and I
really should have put on some warm clothing, instead of pour myself
another glass of maple infused whiskey.  And of course I will not  go
off topic and mention how since around 7:00Am the only news on the
Iceberg is about the deadline trading day in the NHL, though it is
somewhat on topic, if you make a comparison between it and transfer
deadline day in Football.  Same talking heads trying to talk about
nothing for 18 hours but players switching teams and how it will make
those teams better.  I dont know much about NHL, but I get the feeling
Pittsburgh is buying to win the cup this season?

So yes lets keep this Scrute Style.

Malaga  -       Dortmund (Mi.)  -:- (-:-)
Here are the starting line ups according to kicker.  They seem to be
getting better at getting this right now?

Willy - Jesus Gamez, Demichelis, Weligton, Antunes - Toulalan, Iturra
- Joaquin, Isco, Julio Baptista - Saviola
Trainer: Pellegrini

Weidenfeller - Piszczek, Subotic, Felipe Santana, Schmelzer -
Gndogan, S. Bender - Gro?kreutz, M. G?tze, Reus - Lewandowski
Trainer: Klopp

No past history between these teams.

In the last 10 games Malaga have lost 3 times, once to Porto, once to
Betis and last week at home to Espanyol.  They managed a 0-0 draw with
Atletico, which is good for a couple of reasons, the result of course,
but keeping Falcao from scoring as well.  They won away on the weekend
vs Vallecano.

Dortmund have lost thrice as well in the last ten games, The derby vs
Schalke, in what was probably Schalke's best game of the year,
possibly the season?  to Bayern a couple weeks before that in a cup
game and to HSV.  Yeah the team that lost to bayern by a dozen goals
or so, actually beat Dortmund at home 4-1!  I am not making this up.
Hamburg beat Dortmund 4-1 in front of 80,000 Dormtund fans back in
February.

Malaga are a good team, I think an underrated team, they have plenty
of skilled player and on their day can play vs anyone, as are
Dortmund.  Which is kind of why i am surprised at how Dortmund are
favourites to win this game?

I have seen articles in the Spanish press mentioning Hummels is going
to Barca.  Probably a good fit for him and for Barca. Hummels is a
good ball playing defender, maybe not the best defensive defender, but
not bad and he is good in the air. Assuming Pique stays, it would
probably be a lot like the partnership at Dortmund with Subotic.

Dortmund seem to be playing better in Europe and have not lost a game
yet, the only UCL team to not lose yet.  I am starting to believe in
them now,  They are probably the team I would most like to see win it
all.

Real Madrid     -       Galatasaray     -:- (-:-)

Real with their team full of choppers and thugs, coached by that fish
stealing, black eye to the game are a hateful miserable bunch.  They
are a team only a mother could love and I dont mean a parent.  Outside
of Ozil and maybe roid boy, it is hard to like the players on Real.
Some of them were probably OK, but once you play on a Mourinho team,
all your senses of decency, kindness, goodness and fairness are wiped
out of you, it is like joining the Marines or the SS.  Gala have their
share of ex Marines as well, with Drogba, Sjneider and to a lesser
extent Altintop, he probably got out early enough to not be totally
brainwashed?

Oh but sorry, I am supposed to keep this Scrutineer style and stick to
facts and stats.

Diego Lopez - Arbeloa, Varane, Sergio Ramos, Fabio Coentrao - Khedira,
Xabi Alonso - di Maria, ?zil, Cristiano Ronaldo - Benzema
Trainer: Mourinho

Muslera - Ebou, Semih, Nounkeu, Riera - Selcuk Inan, Felipe Melo,
Hamit Altintop, Sneijder - Drogba, Burak
Trainer: Terim

I think Cassilas is back on the bench?   To be fair to the Fish
stealing bastard, he is not playing Pepe and Marcello so much anymore,
maybe even he realizes how low it was when he played them?
If you got 100 bucks you can afford to lose, pick Gala to win, the
multiplier is 17! Get yourself a nice bottle of Cristal with those
winning, or save the 100 and buy 10 bottles of prosecco, you will
barley notice the difference after the second bottle.

These teams did play each other 12 years ago

18.04.2001 Real Madrid - Galatasaray Istanbul 3:0 (3:0)

03.04.2001 Galatasaray Istanbul-  Real Madrid 3:2 (0:2)

Real have not lost in the last ten games, beating Barca twice in those
ten, though they did draw on the weekend with Saragossa.   Gala have
only lost once in the last ten, to Ankara?  Are Ankara doing well in
the Turkish league?  From an ABRMaJM ( I will let you figure out what
it means) perspective I am going for the upset and I really think Gala
can get a draw today.

Due to this NHL trading deadline day, I think all sports channels are
showing nothing but talking heads talking about hockey trades?  So I
hope I find a good stream, preferably in German, but hopefully not
coaxing me int drinking Krombacher,  I cant drink when I have a cold.
Everyone is always "oh take a shot of whiskey and yo will feel better"
etc, that just does not work for me.  Maybe a small glass of red wine
to help me sleep, but that is it!

There's that Biatch***kowski dude, where is he, and didn't Schmelzer break

Tell me more about Gundogan please, he's a beast in FIFA 13, but I genuinely
don't know much about him, attacking/defensive, scores, assists, playmaker?

Dortmund v ??? is how the bookies are seeing it, Malaga deserve credit, but
only been troubled by AC so far...

Subotic is seemingly never mentioned unless he is injured... Hummels gets
all the credit, he had a good Euro from memory...

I don't want them to win it unless they beat either Bayern/Barce/Real in a
KO fixture... also since this is Malaga's debut in the UCL, Pellegrini is
their coach, it reminds me of Villarreal whom he also managed, how does that
rank, taking two lesser clubs to debut semi finals?

Prediction, I think 2-1 to Malaga...

No, I cant see anything other than a Madrid win, I've been wrong MANY times,
I'll gladly be wrong here too...

Yes Kuba is out for a few weeks and Schmelzer was kicked in the face I
think, so he will be wearing a mask ( never played in one myself, but
I can see it being obtrusive playing with one) for this game.
Apparently the stuttgart game this past weekend and the earlier one
were very physical and the Dormtumnd players complained about it.

Quote:

I like Gundogan-and not just becasue he an FS pick of mine- a ball
playing, defensive midfielder, somewhat like Schweinsteiger, probably
a bit more combative, maybe not quite as polished yet, but will
probably become better then Schweinie.  He can do it all, but is
probably best at starting the play from the back.  He was the
replacement for Sahin and I think he has been excellent, keeping Sahin
on the bench for Dortmund.   Should become a German NT regular in a
few years, or earlier?

I would not go that far, they have some good young players coming
through, but for me are a very ordinary workman like team.

Outside of Barca and Real, Spanish teams dont get the credit they
deserve,  like I said before,  Malaga have a lot of good players and
play good football.

Hummels probably does get to much of the credit,  Subotic is an OK
player, i just think Hummels is that much better, though like I said,
he may not be the best "defensive defender"?  Then again you have
these TV pundits who spend all their lives playing football manager
and go about, criticizing any defender when they make one mistake and
then labeling them for ever a bad defender.

 I think due to all these talking heads, who have never played at any
level, who seem to have nothing better to do, then pick up on any
little mistake defenders (or keepers) make to somehow make them seem
all knowing pundits, that we have this unfair expectation of defenders
who should never make mistakes.  All you read or hear after the games
is how so and so made a mistake and cost his team the game blah blah
blah...  It has got to the point for me, where it seems we live in
this footballing world of Football Manager playing types, creating the
football scene.  Every coach and his tactics wins games, not the
players.  This is not baseball or football, where a coach can come in
every ten seconds and make changes, Football flows for 45 minutes, you
can't really make serious tactical changes on the fly, sure you can
bring in a sub or ask someone to play up, or go back or whatever, but
it is still based upon how good your players are.  This world of FM
playing types,  thinking every game can be won or lost based upon the
formation you pick is just so unreal!??!?!?!  Theoretically if I have
11 faster guys, I should win every game right?

I was reading how 'arry Redknapp tactically out maneuvered  who ever
it was in QPR's 3-2 loss.  How was he tactically better if they still
lost 3-2?  He has bought this team worth a 100 million pounds and he
still could not beat some lower table team?  What exactly was the
tactical genius he showed in that game?  I didn't see the game so I
cant say, but  I can just imagine these so called pundits are talking
through their asews.

I would not begrudge Malaga a place in the finals, I just happen to
like Dortmund and their bright yellow shirts.

Mourinho is playing this up probably so it gives him an exit route.

Are you kidding? I like the NHL trade deadline day better than Christmas!
Even though there's not a lot of e***ment expected for today, some trades
are still interesting.

Ray Shero is clearly going all in (he even stated as much).

With Juve now eliminated, I agree.

Can I run for ABRMaJM chairman?

Actually, I didn't use to be an ABJM affiliate, but since JM started to
spend time with the likes of RM and Immaculate ***s, it's hard to keep
any goodwill towards him.

You should go with caipirinha. It wil warm you up and it has a high
vitamin-C concentration. It's my cold/flu drink of choice!

I actually like this era of Bayern team as well, but yes I did not
like them from around the  Rumminegge era, to about 5 years ago.
Come on! Lothar, Ollie, Basler, Effe, i could go on with players I
didn't like, (was OK with Boom Boom Janker though)  the team of the
80's were lumberjacks.  The younger Hoeness was an oaf!  Totally
despicable teams!

So yes, I have jumped on the BVB bandwagon (though they always were my
second favourite team, something about the yellow shirt?) but I have
to, I got nothing to cheer about with Bremen, so I have to get some
joy from somewhere!

Quote:

> (if you're a '60 fan then you're more believable :-))

I always liked Lowenbrau bier (which I associate with 1860 for some
reason) and yes if 1860 were to play Bayern,I would cheer for 1860,
just as I would support St. Pauli over HSV.  I am not an Elitist!

That is not quite fair - the Bayern teams of the early to mid 80s (my
time in Germany) were not so unlikeable, and to be honest I preferred
them to HSV at the time.   Pfaff, Nachtweih, Rummenigge, K?gl, Lerby,
Del haye, were all likeable enough players, and Breitner, while less
likeable, was always interesting, and also very good (same true of
Lothar, his replacement)

Agree with you on Dieter Hoeness, though.

You have nothing to complain about. Consider that you could be an
Arminia fan !

Can't really join the BvB bandwagon, too many bad memories from the 80s
like having them steal our players, and escape a much deserved
relegation in 1985 at our expense.   I would still rather see them win
it than Real, PSG, Juve or Barca, though.  About 50-50 with Bayern.

Yellow and black I can't look at anymore, even though I like Aachen and
the Beetle-Army.  It was difficult to ride home from Berlin last year,
since the city transportation system also has yellow/black colors :-)

Bremen, that's like Baltimore, pure *** (baseball, I don't follow
the NFL).

Over here some of the other Munich beers are better.  Matter of
preference, also matters if you like weissbier better or helles.

I liked the late-70s/early-80s teams, which is from when I became a fan.
When it was Effenberg and Jancker I could understand people not liking
us.  Elber and Paolo Sergio were very likable though.

This phase I was less familiar with.  Rummenigge could be an a-hole
sometimes too.  Breitner?  I always liked him.

Easy to understand, especially I have good friends who are Duisburg and
Aachen fans, respectively :-)  Also St Pauli.

When they won in 1995 we all were for them since they hadn't won in such
a long time, but their fans quickly dispelled that.  They're way too
much in-your-face.  Very very obnoxious in the U-Bahns before and after
the matches.  I vastly prefer Schalke and HSV to them.
