This One Hurts

...And for the 42nd or so straight year, there will be no European title. I'm pretty much speechless right now. Its always worse when you get knocked out without losing a game. This one will sting for a while. Not going to go into much detail right now as I really don't feel like it. All the credit to Valencia, who kept us from getting good shots on goal even though we had some good buildup. Pretty disappointing performance. Not sure yet what happened with that embarrassment at the end, says that Burdisso was punched, other reports say he did the punching. Who knows. Moral of the story for this round is that it doesn't matter how good you think you are, its tough to recover in this competition when you struggle at home. I think someone else found that out today, too...
