Always amuses me about the “Miracle of Istanbul” in 2005.

So Liverpool go three goals down in the first half, but then “miraculously” and “with inspired play” pull three back in the second half and win on penalties.

This all against a team that shortly afterwards was implicated in 2006 in all sorts of dodgy dealings of match fixing – that had been going on for some time. Needless to add that Berlusconi was the club owner.

But somehow the final was whiter than white.

Yep. I believe that.
