    What will interest me most in this is what UEFA do next. The video evidence is very clear, and whilst the man who ran onto the pitch is clearly a cretin of the very first order, he basically did nothing at all.

    I predict UEFA will choose to disregard this fact and throw the book at Celtic. I hope they don’t, as I find Milan being beaten by Celtic very amusing. But as Alan Hansen says, you just can’t raise your hands on the football pitch these days.

    Liverpool played like crap.

    That’s pretty much the long and short of it. Marseille was alright, but Liverpool looked like they would have been lucky to beat Millwall, much less Marseille.

    Sissiko should’ve been subbed about 20 minutes in but was left out for the whole game. Leto was terrible, as was Aurelio. Even Gerrard looked pretty awful.

    And Mascherano spent the whole game on the bench, surely wondering what exactly it is he did to deserve such a fate.

    I well remember the Rojas incident though it’s only in the past couple of years that I’ve heard of a conspiracy theory going around (Spanish-speaking) Latin America, namely that Rojas was indeed struck and was framed in an elaborate plot to guarantee Brazil’s passage to Italia 90 against a strong Chile side that had humiliated them twice over the previous two years. That’s what a couple of my Mexican and Argentinian friends say anyway.

    I’m not sure if I buy it but it’s not entirely implausible given the penchant for dodgy dealings of then FIFA President João Havelage and his son-in-law Ricardo Teixeira, who was president of the CBF.
