That's silly, to be able to do that from 40 yards out. I know it went over, but shiat, it's still impressive.

Holy crap that ball had movement on it.

That RM player was hit so hard that he barrel rolled 7 times after hitting the turf......or perhaps it was the same guy that exaggerated to get RVP a yellow. What a douche.

The other game looks pretty entertaining. Back and forth, back and forth. 2-2 now after a 90th minute goal.

There are no good guys in this match.

Why am I not surprised Evra is BFFs w/ Ronaldo?

It's been a really long time that I've seen the ref called it before the corner is taken. Still, great result for United.

Liverpool plays at noon, Chelsea at 1, and Spurs and Newcastle play at 3 tomorrow. All times Eastern.

Nor will it quiet talk about the Manchester United defense, which did a pretty good job without Vidic.

Yep, he should have stayed in Arsenal to play for those 4th place trophies that Wenger says counts as something.

I don't know... Ramos got multiple dives to turn into yellows for the opposing team.

Or try to build something with people who stood behind him when he was an asshole with talent, who always got hurt, while still being paid ridiculously well.

I know it's a business, but Christ.

meanyogurt: 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.


I live in canada though, and thus ineligible for foxsoccer2go. Not sure who our streaming rights got sold to...

great game though between RM/MU. Poor result for madrid though as they now face the second leg away on march 5, right after playing a midweek cup game and weekend league game both against barca (feb 26, mar 2)

Enjoyed that. Welbeck and De Gea were great, both have outstanding potential. Though I wish someone would teach Dave how to catch the ball occasionally rather than punch. Rooney had one of those games where it's laughable that he's our best-paid player. I really don't like him :-)

Cristiano Ronaldo's goal was magnificent.

Can't wait for the second leg.

So go to Uefa.com and see where they direct you. It's either free, or cheap.

as i said earlier, on the page that i used to purchase match replays, it just says "the replay video service has been suspended". And when i try and purchase the live streams it just directs me to the front page of sportsnet, which does not offer any streaming...

Go to Sportsnet World, I think they have it.  But you have to buy a package and it ain't cheap from what I remember.

Thank you. But I still don't think that subscription offers match replays, which is a deal-breaker for me. Something like the ol arsenaltvonline is what I'm looking for, but for ucl

To be fair, Rooney was playing out of position on the left so it wasn't exactly his natural position (striker) or natural support position (CAM). He did screw up a few passes though, but I thought he did better in the second half.

Agree with both assessments of Welbeck and De Gea. Hoping Sir Alex backs De Gea, but tells him he needs to eat more burritos and put on about 20 pounds of muscle so he can move people out of the way.

The most surprising thing from the match I thought was how well the defense did at stymieing (haha I spelled it correctly here) RM's offense or at least good looks on goal.

weird. you watch saf every week, so i figured you'd be used to watching people whine already.


You're right.  We also have to listen to the constant whining from LFC fans about a myriad of imagined issues so we should be used to it by now!

It might be that De Gea didn't learn to be a keeper in Britain. I used to play in goal at school and even at that level you know that it's almost impossible to give up a penalty no matter what you do. SAF should get a lower league keeper to show DG how to deal with the likes of Shawcross.

I always find it funny how self important Spanish journalists are. If the players and coaches don't bow down and worship the ground they walk on they get right humpy.

Whining about our teams inability to put the farking ball in the goal is not whining about an imagined issue! It's real to us, damnit!

Rooney has played out of position a million times before. He's 27 now, he's supposed to be at his peak. He should relish games like this (moreso than most other games he's privileged to play in for United). He's just so frequently so disappointing.

It's Dave's inability to catch the ball from crosses when he's unchallenged that bothers me. It's been nearly two years, and none of the coaching staff seem to be telling him to catch rather than punch. It just puts more pressure on his own weakness.

This is making me sound much grumpier than I am. I'm actually in a great mood today. And not just because of the card I sent to myself ...

And they proved it today by losing the 1st leg of the Europa League playoff at Zenit 2-0

Not in denile, but the second leg in London is winable if we get an away goal in the first half.
