Hyypia still is *one of* the best defenders in Europe, although I think that Valencia
over the past year have possibly shown that they have the best overall defence in
Europe and if they attack as well in all their other CL games as they did last night,
they'll go a long way.

If you're referring to Gerrard, then I dont remember anyone here describing him as
the best in the world. IMO, he's a terrific player already and will get better as he
gains more and more experience, but never mind the world, he isnt even the best
midfielder in the EPL.
> maybe the almost best GK in Europe
Again, *one of* the best in Europe. As you said above, it could have been 5 to
Valencia and one of the main reasons it wasnt was that Dudek made a number of saves
throughout the game. No keeper in the world is unbeatable and if the defence is not
on top form, it makes it even more difficult for the keeper. The first goal last
night was top quality, and even though I havent yet seen a replay of the second goal,
it looked to have been so well placed that Dudek would have have been lucky to have
got near it.

Valencia away was always going to be our toughest match, but we had 3 or 4 players
missing who would be included in a first choice line up, and the players who did play
didn't do themselves justice and were convincingly beaten in the end. As long as we
pick things up by the time we play Basel next week, I still think we'll progress to

My money was on Bayern at the start of the season, but the other two you've mentioned
will certainly challenge. To be honest, I think that there's 7 or 8 teams who, with a
bit of luck, could go all the way, but it's too early to predict just yet.
