my favorite match this season is man u vs. reading, the first match. man u came back from a 1-0 deposit to win it. It was very exciting with a lot of attack in the 2nd half. it isn't the most memorable game, but one of my favorites. this season. Also totenham vs. chelsea i believe was a very exciting game too.

Another of my most memerable matches was Tottenham vs Man City in the fa cup 4th round, im not a city fan but watch city's second half comeback with a man down was just something special.
AC Milan vs Liverpool
I was a neutral but this game really impressed me because of how the Liverpool players were playing with all their hearts. Getting cramps and tired as hell but fighting to the end to win it.
Nice and not so nice remarks - I have really thought hard about this topic and would like to mention a few things to allow you follow my process of thought.

just as there are variations to what makes a good goal, i.e. different factors which combines in various degrees of randomness to produce a beautiful expression for interpretation, there are also many different factors which if balanced, will lead to an entertaining match.

Something I think really needs to be grasped are great distinctions, which I beleive are
1. Epic
2. Classic
3. Great
4. Memorable (very simlar to classic)

1. An Epic is a tense match that an be viewed by those who are involved in teh situation; the situation is relative (meaning it is what we need to be involved in to understand) as was the case with the game of Arsenal and Manchester UNited match of 1999. It is teh subjective take on a great match. It usually contains tense moments, some drama. but it's main characteristic is the competitiveness :)

2.Classic - a bit ironic, and anti-climatic, I beleive that these are more the matches which are over-emphasis due to what they meant to the preferred ideals of certain people, i.e. 'and smith must score...', however, these, due to some element of trying to appeal too vast, are really not what they are made out to be. An example, would be someone remembering the English victory of 1966 (not for the match becuase I haven't seen it) but because, it is a piece of history for them (as opposed to a historic moment in football for the game itself, as is the case with memorable game).

3. Great matches, extremely rere, are more to the side of being objective, and for this reason, though still conditional, can be viewed generally

4. Memorable games are those which I feel are really subjective and need to be explained well. They tend to be knitted into their time frames i.e. there may have been a great build up, a new sensation, a hype... or in a more neutral sense, they have specific moments which touch us forever i.e. Ronaldinho goal in Chelsea v Baraca game in (i think) 2005, or more specifically, Munich V Man U - who could have expected such a twist. They are sort of like the detective games, where their are many different aspects of evidence to bring together to see the real essence.

:x

As you may deduce, this is a tier system, similar to the one proposed by 'shineon112001'[member of another forum linked to this site} - used for classifying players.

Now that that is 'in' the way, let us take that out and advance back onto our path
We must not allow ourselves to be taken off course from our natural game, No matter what, we must stick to our natural game
Hope that has settled a bit of confusion. See you soon

I dont mean to be rude but what was all that nonsense above? To reitterate what you where talking about I went back to read the 1st post and then the 2nd post and I am certain that no one had any issues regarding anything that had to do with your post. Nor did the subject of this post have any resemblence to what you posted.

Finally the following
Hope that has settled a bit of confusion. See you soon
There arent any confusions anywhere in this topic, all you needed to do was simply answer the subject which was what was your memorable game and why? You didnt need to jeopardise this topic with that post.

Anyways...

My most memorable

1. Livepool v AC Milan - greatest comeback and the scousers played with all they had left.

2. Australia V Uraguay - no one believe Australia could do it. We made it to the WC.

3. Australia V Italy - The saddest moment of my football memories because the outcome could have been so much more different if that penalty hadnt taken place.

1. Livepool v AC Milan - greatest comeback and the scousers played with all they had left. :cry:

2. Australia V Uraguay - no one believe Australia could do it. We made it to the WC. :wink:

3. Australia V Italy - The saddest moment of my football memories because the outcome could have been so much more different if that penalty hadnt taken place. :wink:

Now then, let's put them under the calculus

1. Epic
2. Classic
3. Great
4. Memorable (very simlar to classic)
(assuming you understood that)

I really think that you should have paid more attention to what I said, because it seems to be that it could have sharpened your judgement. It seriously appears to me that you are a gullible servant proud to lye prone to a dictatorship - simply because you appear to basing your views of 'memorable matches' on a couple sentences.
Dude, I'm quite sure that in order for a match to be memorable, it has to fit into one of the above categories, unless
a) you have another distinction
b) you were seated in a dark room with a nice tub of vaseline, and a lucid imagination watching hard working warriors giving all they can, showing great passion, and going all out for that emphatic victory.

If you didn't catch it, I was trying to assert that if people have no ground to stand on, their arguments have no ground (that simple enough for you) - which is why I was laying some foundation to advance on.
Really though, I'm not really a fan of experts, so before I discard your idea of a great match, I would really like to know if there is more to it. i mean come on, Italy V Australia, memorable because of a last minute penalty.
Doesn't make much to get you happy. I refuse to respond nutil you choose to understand
-----I'll be waiting for your aggression :x
------Before you do that, go to some clear seeing, rational person who is full functional upon logic, and ask them whether or not, (put aside the trivialites lie 'hope that cleared up some confusion' - which was hinting at what I consdiered to be poor suggestions) and ask them if my base is making sense, or at leat is an objective matter of credibilty.

Those matches that make you shout at your scream for an amazing play, the finals in the world cup, when your favorite makes a huge comback in important game(man utd vs bayern munich in the 1999 champions league final), or any big rivalries with drama and great abilities are shown. Those are what make a game memorable for me.

1. AC Milan vs. Liverpool I was sick that day, so I got to stay home and watch it... *cough* Dudek totally destroyed AC in the shootout, and then he sadly faded away.

2. Italy vs. France World Cup 2006....sad, sad day. It had memorable moments in it and after all that hype, Zidane left with a bang...
Who won the game anyways? :D I don't think I remember after what happened there.

3. Manchester Utd. vs. Bayern Munich I just watched it, what a cracker. Amazing since I'm a Man U fan. I was too young to know that it was such a huge game or remember it was on. I was only 6...lol But now I see it, and wow, brilliant.

Congrats on the 900th post!

When Henry scored that goal against Brazil I jumped up and screamed things that I'll get banned for if I type them. I have always liked the Brazilian players... Ronaldo and Ronaldinho specifically.

These are typical matches that have been spoke of hundreds of times, but where is the depth... exactly where is the solid ground on which these judgements are made...or are you still being programme dby the media...is there any rational person here who has a valid counter argument against my categorisations.... what exactly does it take to get thes eposters entertained... because I've seen a few of the matches mentioned and gee's...they are not pretty.

As said best by Alan Watt :shock:
Talk to pre-programmed people and your going to hear the same slogans coming out of their mouths

Is there a shred or individuality, rationality or even basic innovation left in any football forums..
Perhaps I should really go into the puppetting business...I could make a fortune out of common people

Then again, ther may teh one person who puts their emotions aside and counters all that is said above on the grounds that it is a prejudice lacking compassion and empathy, as I am attacking posters based on superficial mediums:- 'WORDS'.... :idea:

I hereby declare that I beleive anything the majority of people are talking about...media does my reasoning for me..... anybody who disagrees with the common public is a crazy, farfetched idiot, who needs to live in the real world... :wink:
