Crap I was hoping no one would mention this!!!

Dundee Utd have a really good squad and they have just reached the cup final but last night there goalie made a couple of quality saves while Arveladze headed over from 2 yards.

The title will still be ours however!!

Have a free match report Ibrox!!!

Rangers 0-1 Dundee Utd

McLeish goes easy on losing side

Chisholm delighted by work ethic

Dundee United enhanced their chances of SPL survival, simultaneously damaging Rangers' hopes of winning the title with a shock win at Ibrox.
Stuart Duff was the difference between the teams, heading past Ronald Waterreus at the second attempt after only eight minutes.

Rangers threw everything at Tony Bullock's goal but found the United keeper in inspirational form.

It was Rangers' first defeat at home in the league this season.

The home side started in sloppy fashion and they were punished as United took the lead.

Jim McIntyre crossed for Duff, who took advantage of static defending from Rangers to connect with the header a few yards out.

Waterreus did superbly to block the initial effort but he could not prevent Duff from nodding the rebound into the net.

Rangers then proceeded to squander a host of chances to equalise before half time.

Nacho Novo was first to do so, blasting well over from six yards after being picked out by strike partner Dado Prso's header.

Prso was guilty of an even more glaring miss when Hamed Namouchi picked him out unmarked, but he sent his effort wide of the empty net.

Novo was unfortunate to see another shot cleared off the line after Fernando Ricksen's corner broke to him at the far post.

United keeper Tony Bullock shows his delight at the win

Then, with half-time approaching, Rangers had another chance when Namouchi released Novo into the box but Bullock did well to deny the Spaniard as he tried to round the keeper.

Just seconds after the break Bullock was left with stinging fingers after blocking Prso's angled drive.

The Dundee United goalkeeper was receiving little respite and was called into action again when Novo picked up the ball inside the area and looked like he had little more to do than choose his spot but Bullock managed to turn his shot round the post.

United almost extended their advantage as Jim McIntyre took advantage of a moment of sloppiness by Kyrgiakos to launch the ball at goal but he was denied by the crossbar.

Paul Ritchie scooped a Novo header off the line as Rangers pressed again and there was worse to come.

Novo's curling cross found substitute Steven Thompson at the back post and he laid on a lovely ball for Shota Arveladze only for the striker to bullet his header over from a yard out.


Rangers: Waterreus, Ross, Malcolm (Thompson 80), Kyrgiakos, Ball, Namouchi (Arveladze 57), Ricksen, Alex Rae, Vignal (Lovenkrands 63), Novo, Prso.

Subs Not Used: McGregor, Khizanishvili, Burke, McCormack.

Dundee Utd: Bullock, Kenneth, Ritchie, Archibald, Wilson, Kerr, Duff, Brebner, Robson, Samuel (Crawford 65), McIntyre (Grady 90).

How come they have such a good squad and are in danger of relegation ??
(PS for some unknown reason I have always liked Dundee - NOT UTD tho)

Against the weaker sides they tend to lose sloppy goals and their performance is at a much lower level and luck hasn't been on their side but Rangers haven't beaten them in the league in 6 matches home or away.

And thanks Hippykid for that wonderful summary of the game.

Amazing comeback for Sporting Lisbon! They'd lost 1-0 in Newcastle and Newcastle took the lead again in Lisbon (0-1)... and that was it, 'cos Sporting Lisbon scored 4 and now go through in style! It was amazing 'cos when they were 3-1 up instead of defending the result they kept on putting pressure on Newcastle... that's the spirit!
Well done for them and for Portuguese football! :D

Ralo 15-04-2005 05:38

Yeah Sporting played great. Watch out for these young Sporting players, they have loads of talent. Dont be suprised to see some of them in some of the big clubs in the future. Sporting has a very good youth academy that produced Figo and C. Ronaldo.

AZ made it! Villarreal dominated but AZ did it again :D

AP 15-04-2005 08:09

CSKA lost to Auxerre 0-2 but won on aggregate 4-2! It's the first time in history when Russian (not Soviet) club qualifies to UEFA semifinal!!!

GO CSKA!!! :rock:

I won the 2nd Snickers Super due to CSKA win!!!


Sporting and AZ made 2 sensations!
I'm sorry for Newcastle! What a pity to lose after 2-0 leading!
Also well done by Parma.


CSKA - Parma
AZ - Sporting

IMHO all 4 are quite equal! Every team has good chance to win!


No more Spanish and French clubs in European cups...

Feliuk 15-04-2005 11:34

yep it's the first time in 15 years there hasn't been a spanish club in a semi final in a European competition

freakyy 17-04-2005 15:30

YEAH! Ajax won 2-3 against Feyenoord :D Ajax deserved the win, played the best football. It wasn't a really spectecular match, but hell Ajax won :D Az draw 1-1 against NAC, so Ajax also took place 2 ^^

freakyy 18-04-2005 11:36

Well the day after :D
It was a great win, Feyenoord only defended and hoped for some counters to score. That worked 2 times... Ajax dominated but couldn't create very much chances.

First half Feyenoord scored a goal, but it was cancelled cause Kuijt pulled Grygera down.
In the second half Kalou was way to fast for Escude and scored. After that, Ajax scored the 1-1, Pienaar got past 2 men and gave a smart assist on de Jong who shot in supreme in the goal. Some minuts later, a goal of Ajax was also cancelled.
In minut 80 Kuijt scored with a soft but very well placed shot. Ajax came with some furious attacks and it worked. A corner of Ajax was bounced away, Trabelsi shot the bal from the middle into the area and Grygera had a beautiful volley and scored the 2-2.
In minut 92, a great pass from Anastasiou and Boukhari could run free as a bird towards Babos. He missed, but Trabelsi picked the ball up and waited till Maduro was there to shoot the ball from 11 meters into the upperright corner of the goal! A great and deserved win.

Barnet's players celebrate clinching promotion back to the League
Barnet won the Nationwide Conference and promotion back to the Football League after a four-year absence.
Halifax took a surprise lead when Lewis Kileen slotted them ahead early on.

But the Bees levelled before the break when Ben Strevens latched on to a Giuliano Grazioli pass to hammer home from the edge of the penalty box.

Simon King nodded them into the lead before Town had John Grant sent off and Grazioli made sure of promotion with a fine low drive from 15 yards.

The jubilant Barnet striker left the field to a rousing reception from the buzzing Bees' faithful when substituted with a few minutes left.

About Time!!!

Lets hope we can stay there now...

Barnet is back!!! Great! I remembered the last match I attended which was that "famous" against Torquay that send Barnet down to the Conference... Such a sad day....

Finally, the Bees are back, but - don't they have to get a special admission by the FA because Underhill doesn't meet the FA requirements for Third Division?

Hippykid, do you know something about that? The new stadium for Barnet is something I don't believe in at all anymore...
