I was watching Juventus v. Celtic last night, gripping match until Juve scored the second goal late into the second half. I felt bad for the Celtic side, they were trying so hard and so many close chances. The crowd was wild.

I hope Rooney stomps on Ronaldo's nuts....but I hope he actually does it this time.

No fair, Ronaldo is using antigravity boots

When I started following BPL i mainly watched for the Americans in EPL. So Everton with Tim H. and Clint Dempsey. Now i still watch Everton and beginning to like Hotspur
 
2013-02-13 03:26:57 PM  
Does nobody follow team then conference rooting hierarchy? With all the crap talk about how Spain is the best league top to bottom, I would think most people who follow English teams would want to see an exit to all if the Spanish sides.

I don't care for Real Madrid or Mourinho, but am not a fan of Manchester United, either.

United allowing real to have a lot of possession around the box.

Right..but it's more of a "would you rather" type a thing.

I can tolerate them. They are interesting to watch to see how a soccer club can implode with a crazy coach. I feel as though cheering for ManU is like wanting the Yankees to win.
 
2013-02-13 03:33:39 PM  
Fun first half. How is Gus sounding?

Not horrible, actually.  A little heavy on the specific details, but he hasn't been in the way.

Hell of a 1st soccer announcing job. There is the deep end and then there is a Champions League matchup years in the making

I feel like Real Madrid is the more appropriate "Yankees of soccer" than ManU. At least ManU develops some young talent, whereas Madrid fits the "buy our way to a title" image much better. Even the colors are more of a fit.

ScouserDuck: Right..but it's more of a "would you rather" type a thing.


Honestly, after Van Persie abandoned Arsenal this season and is on the way toward winning the Prem with Manchester United, it would gut me worse to see him lift a Champion's League trophy on top of that. If RvP wasn't on United, I'd probably be rooting for them. It just still hurts.

Do you still listen to The Cure as you gaze at his picture? :) don't worry man... It just takes time.
 
2013-02-13 03:55:48 PM  
I was bracing myself for a letdown, but the first half of United/Real is living up to the hype. Now I just need to figure out a subtle way to catch the second half from work...
 
2013-02-13 03:56:56 PM  

Sachbash: Sachbash: Last season uefa let you pay to stream replays of ucl games for $2 on their website, now it just says "the replay service has been suspended". Fark you uefa for regressing service


UEFA sold the streaming rights for the US to Fox.  You can still get streaming matches by subscribing at http://www.foxsoccer2go.com/  for $20 a month.  The video quality is better than the ones available from UEFA, but you can't just buy games a la carte anymore.  They do have a free trial available though.

That was the last defender..could have been red.

Both refs in the games i have seen have "Howard Webb'd" it by not having the balls to card and send people off.

Ehhh, considering how little Arsenal has done in bringing depth and quality to the squad, I really can't blame RvP for moving on.

Not saying it makes it all square, but didn't he bring in a shiat-ton of money to Arsenal for the transfer?

Hahaha, yeah. I suppose. RvP is a great player and to lose him to another team in the EPL hurts. To see him go to Manchester United hurts more. To see him leading them to a title.... BRB, gotta go cut myself
 
2013-02-13 04:08:04 PM  
Rooney's last few set pieces have been terrible.
 
2013-02-13 04:10:13 PM  
Evening all. Am back in the Old Country today, just outside London for some tedious bureaucracy.

Rwa2play: Ehhh, considering how little Arsenal has done in bringing depth and quality to the squad, I really can't blame RvP for moving on.


NNah, I can't blame him. I sai last year that at 29, the next contract was likely his last and he'd be foolish (especially with his injury history) to not get as much as he could for himself. I also said that as much as I liked him, Arsenal would be foolish (especially with his injury history) to not get as much as they could for a player who was leaving. I just wished that he would have stayed and finished his career at Arsenal.

digistil: Not saying it makes it all square, but didn't he bring in a shiat-ton of money to Arsenal for the transfer?


He did, and I'm not complaining about that at all. His transfer fee paid for most of Cazorla, Podolski and Giroud, and I've liked all of them this season. But Arsenal probably could have had all four on the books without stressing their financial situation. Maybe it would have been a disaster, but at very least RvP wouldn't be netting goals for Man U.
 
2013-02-13 04:14:44 PM  
ARGH! RvP should have scored that!

I thought it was in. What happened to RM's defense?
 
2013-02-13 04:15:29 PM  
RVP blew it man... He's at there and watched it... Should have either hit it square or at least followed his shot.
 
2013-02-13 04:22:01 PM  
nice to see van Mercenary scuff his point blank shot. biatch.
 
2013-02-13 04:22:17 PM  
This game should quiet all the critics about De Gea. It won't, but it should.
 
2013-02-13 04:22:31 PM  
De gea has been phenominal. I still don't get his acrobatic kick save, he didnt have to do that to save that goal at all.

Funny you say that, because Webb is the ref in the other match going right now (Shakhtar 2-1 right now)

It's a shame that Gus Johnson has to sit through five years of this crap to get to the World Cup 2018 gig.
