And a random question, since I was drinking during the whole thing: was the offside call on Mcbride's no-goal legit? I couldn't tell if the player touched the ball or not, but it's a pity we lost such a golden chance.
It was a judgment call. McBride didn't touch it, but the ref can still whistle offside if he thinks the player "interfered" with play. I seem to remember the ref letting things like that go b/c the player never touched the ball, but I think the ref got it right since the player was in the path of the shot (although he tried to move out of the way). Buffon probably makes that save otherwise, since he's pretty good generally. It was a tough break.
