Liverpool Message Board
Anyone know if within the rule book Dudek is allowed to prance around on the touchline in the way he did - at the very least this displayed a lack of sportmanship.
On top of that at the second Milan penalty miss he was nearly on the six yard line when the ball was kicked!!
He should have received a warning and the penalty taken again!
We may have been looking at a differnt result this morning!!
Well done to Liverpool coming back from 3 nil down - not many teams have the guts (or the brilliant fans to lift them)to do that! But did anyone else spot them playing for a penalty shoot out from the very first minute of extra time?!
like the commentator said - Dida did the same 2 yrs ago and got away with it. he did not cheat because the whole world saw it. milan ( or shall i say Pirlo ) let it slip away. he should have protested but he didnt. maybe he accept the fate that it is not AC Milan's night.
No question that liverpool played for penalties from the first kick of extra time.their lack of fitness was shocking,40 thousand a week and you can't play for 2 hours in what was a very mediocre paced, and very clean game.the milan players were far quicker than liverpool
How the hell can a goal keeper on penatlies cheat, did he carry a spare up his shirt and make the other ball disappear after they kicked it. The goal keeper made the tension of penatlies laughable. Thought he was top. He was like no other goalie around.
think cheating is a little too strong a word for it.
you are allowed to move along the line and do whatever you want as long as you do not leave the line.
as for the 2nd miss - and I think the 3rd miss he moved forward before the ball was kicked - according to the rulebook these should have been retaken, but it is upto the referee to make that decision, and the ref either didn't see it, or chose to ignore it, or didn't fully understand the rules.
not exactly Dudeks fault, he probably thought try it - worst that could happen is it is retaken!!!

yeah all I am asking is:
a) is it allowed - you have advised it is and
b) making the point he was miles off his line when the second penalty was taken!
but that football and Liverpool will have had their fair share of injustices throughout the season!
Cheat ? What are you talking about ? First of all there is a referee to notice that and to take action. Second thing: when you are thinking about saving a penalty - you simply don't pay attention to where you are jumping, moving. If it's a line or not, especially in a game like that. You focus on the shot.
And the last thing: Dudek is one of the most polite and fair playing player I've ever seen. Not only on the pitch.

Sorry - I maybe had my tv tuned into a different channel from you?!
I was talking about his deliberate moving about on the line , shaking his legs, waving his arms about in the air like some animated monkey on drugs - in an attmept to distract the player taking the penalty!
Fair point the referee should have dome somehting - exactly the point i am making!
Oops I seem to have touched a raw nerve here?! :-)
ps - have you met him?
