I’m going to persevere with this one. Is there a correlation between use of social media (presumably by fans) and the fortunes of their teams on the field? OK, OK, bear with me, if only because all other forms of punditry and prediction in football are equally as lame. If there is a direct correlation then tonight’s game will be very tight. Liverpool are ahead in search volume, Milan lead in daily twitter traffic (they do love their mobiles in Italy) and there seems to be a draw in news reference volume. So penalties it is again.
. . . . and if it’s penalties, then it’s down to the two goalkeepers; Dida (Milan) vs Reina (Liverpool). Reina is ahead on all three counts here, so if social media is anything to go by, tonights Champions’ League final will be a draw after full time and Liverpool will win on penalties. But then again, it could be an inverse correlation and Milan might win the shoot-out.
