just in time for tomorrow's clash, patrice evra is in the news.

poor patty, always the victim. i wonder what his wife did to drive him into the cold, cold arms of another woman.

also, it's nice to know he thinks england is the "shiattiest country in the world".

Patrice Evra: A guy who blames the coach for starting a mutiny of his own making.

Him, John Terry, William Gallas and Ashley Cole would've made a quartet of farking wastes of space.

Tomorrow's games are...sexy. I feel like I should just watch Real Madrid v Man U, but I really, really, really like watching Dortmund play.

Parlaying the road teams to win today, would be happy to lose my bet because Celtic slip one past Gigi somehow though!

Good: I have tomorrow off! Wooo!
Bad: I have it off cause they're installing a generator at the house.
Even Worse: The 'startup/poweroff/testing' phase will be at the time the RM/MU game.

Awfully brave of Juventus to leave the Greatest Player in the World™ out of the squad today.

If she's really old, tell her she already went to mass and just forgot.  Or the church burned down. Or she's not really religious.
But if she has her senses around her, yeah, you're screwed.

Let's all laugh at Celtic. Schoolboy defending.
 
2013-02-12 03:35:20 PM
One good thing about being back in school is that I can actually watch these matches. Will be able to watch all of tomorrow's matches, but going to miss the last 15 minutes today.

Stupid mistake early on. Gutted at giving away yet another easy goal in Europe. Great energy and aggression going forward in the first half, though, and I'm hoping it can come together in the second half.

Juventus have been playing like absolute coonts, particularly while defending from corners. I'm stunned that Hooper was booked for being repeatedly fouled. Bawbags.
 
2013-02-12 03:40:33 PM
Liking my bet so far, nervous about those Celtic corners though, could totally see a penalty given outta one of those scrums at some point

Yeah that was total BS. Hooper should have been fine and Leichstein should have been a yellow+ or sent off. Not very surprised that Juve is complaining so much, just a bit disappointed. I expected it, but it's still annoying to see.

Celtic have been playing amazingly and done everything but score a goal. Wish Samaras was playing, because I think they'd have one already if that was the case.

If anyone has mastered the art of being farking prima donnas when it comes to being challenged on the pitch, it's the Italians. Their actions tonight shouldn't surprise anyone.

It's a pity. Samaras must not have been match fit quite yet. I definitely miss him out there, but I do expect to see him on the away leg.

Bollocks. Juve should have at least one player sent off and Celtic given a pk based on this horrendous corner marking and then Juve goes ahead and gets a second. Terrible refereeing, but good finish from Juve.
 
2013-02-12 04:25:25 PM
As a former defender in my younger days, I don't see any fouls on those corners. The strikers get away w/ so much pulling and grabbing and crap, nut up or shut up. It's a full contact sport. Corners are messy like that.

How? You drop three points to someone, you'll just pick them up somewhere else on the schedule and run off with the title anyway. Without Rangers around, you're just a medium-sized fish in a pond of plankton. Leagues aren't any fun when you know who's going to win them from Day 1. As it stands, the only time Celtic games matter for a hill of beans are when they're against non-domestic opponents. Your REAL opponents this season have been HJK Helsinki, Helsingborgs IF, Barcelona, Benfica, Spartak Moscow and Juventus.

And now you're 90 minutes away from your real season being over and getting sent back to your piddling little kiddie-pool Globetrotters-vs-Generals joke of a league. Enjoy.

That's a tad over dramatic.  Honestly, the only difference in the competitive balance for the titles of the EPL and the SPL this season is Roman Abramovich and Sheikh Mansour Al Nahyan.  Without those two men,  both leagues would have been over on Day 1; the others would only be left to fight for the scraps--admittedly much richer scraps in the EPL, but still the scraps.  ...and even with those men, the EPL title was still effectively over by Christmas, unless United manage to piss it away for a second straight year.

The modern European leagues (at least the larger ones) are all very top heavy.  If you're not a fan of the one of these local powerhouses, you pretty much have to resign yourself to never winning the league indefinitely unless there's some dramatic economic shift in your favor. It's just the reality of the finances of the game these days.  What happened in Scotland could happen anywhere if one of the big teams collapsed financially.  You almost have to credit the SPL for not propping up Rangers or giving them no more than a slap on the wrist.  One does have to wonder what other leagues would do if one of their historic powerhouses found themselves in the same situation tomorrow...

Anyone who didn't feel bad for Celtic losing, is clearly a Rangers or Juve fan.  Great atmosphere and interest in a game that didn't involve English, Spanish, or German teams.

So they plan in a top heavy division and without any real competition their season was to be judged in the Champions League, it's just a shame that Juve was clearly the better team and absolutely ruthless in the last 10m of that game.

The SPL has its faults, but they were still worth rooting for in the Champions League (at least for neutrals).

I'm so excited and nervous!

I don't think United will go through, but they've saved some of their best performances/results for the biggest games (led 2-0 and won against City, Chelsea, Arsenal, Everton and Liverpool). Spurs and Norwich, on the other hand ...

United's weaknesses are many and obvious, but this is where you want to be. This is ''the acid test,'' in Sir's words.
 
2013-02-13 01:49:34 PM
De Gea; Rafael, Ferdinand, Evans, Evra; Jones, Carrick; Welbeck, Kagawa, Rooney; ORVP.
