Wow, what a week. Liverpool FC 4-0 FC Barcelona (4-3 agg.) You know what at this point I’m just going to do player ratings because I don’t think I can string together proper paragraphs about this game. Because so many individuals deserved special praise or scorn, this is the easiest way to keep track. If…

Let me get the scores out of the way, because I want to depart from the usual formula.   Real Madrid 2-2 Bayern Munich (4-3 agg.) Ulreich messed up, and Bayern’s front three couldn’t finish. Real had no business moving on, but they’re in the final. Good for them. Roma 4-2 Liverpool (6-7 agg.) Liverpool…
