Just a quick post. I went out with the soccer dudes last night to watch the Juventus vs. Melbourne Victory game. I was really disappointed because none of the "star players" were playing for Juve. I was looking forward to watching Pavel Nedved, Trezeguet, Sissoko, and Del Piero rip the pitch up, but i had to settle for a some random 2nd-stringers.
Nevertheless, the players put on a rather magnificent display (thanks to the pathetic Melb vic defence!) 4-1 was the final score in favour of Juventus; no surprise really. Highlights of the night were Hernandez's rappler from outside the penalty box which gave Victory a short-lived glimpse of hope, followed by Palladini's clinicaly volley which sealed the victory.
We sat on the first level just behind the goals. WORST SEATS EVER! Don't EVER sit there if you do go for a soccer match. You can't see anything! It's a ONE-DIMENSIONAL view! I could only see the ball bop up and down. lol! We had to look onto the big screens for most of the game. Albeit, it was a fun night out with my good old friends! :)
