Work is keeping me from watching the game live, so I'll hope for the best for the boys. Good luck to Coventry; I hope they lose but I know their club will show up and battle hard.

Make it the weekend thread. Keep it simple.

Also, £34m isn't a bad bit of change for a 21 year investment. Well done, Neymar's parents.

Agreed.

Everton have signed Lacina Traore on loan. Great, so now they have an even bigger target to lump long balls too. We're so screwed in the derby.

PODOLSKI gets things started. Inevitable.
 
2014-01-24 03:01:56 PM  
Arsenal dominating play as they should be. Nice goal from Podolski to finally open it up.

Oh... Right... Never mind...

2014-01-24 03:13:33 PM  
2-0 Gunners. Easy as you will.

Already a brace for Podolski

Hard to bet against him getting a hat trick. Looks like it's going to be a long night for Coventry.

The Ricoh Arena has a hotel built in. I stayed there a couple of years ago. Essentially the same rooms are used as bedrooms and as executive rooms when there is a match on, so your bedroom window looks out onto the pitch.

Looks like its...
(sunglasses)
...lights out for Coventry.
 
2014-01-24 03:50:13 PM  
Meanwhile, it's goalless at half between Nottingham Forest and Preston. It's apparently a very boring affair so far.

Wouldn't be the first time.

Come on, you were all thinking it.

Why did I read that as goatless?

And let's see how many more Liverpool players can get hurt between now and tomorrow's match (let alone the Derby next week)
 
2014-01-24 04:27:33 PM  
Giroud! 3-0 and that's that.
 
2014-01-24 04:32:46 PM  
4-0 Santi!

New Barcelona president trying to pretend people are curious about the Neymar transfer only because Neymar snubbed Real. You know, not because he paid Neymar's dad 40 million euros on the side. No sir, it's only about the snub. Never mind the fact it was a Barcelona fan which made the lawsuit demanding the details be made public.

It really should be. It's pretty damn shady.

And it apparently broke a law in Spain due to dodging taxes, since the judge accepted hearing the case citing a law in the Spanish penal code.

I hope this shuts up the holier-than-thou Barca fans for awhile. Put that in your UNICEF pipe and smoke it

You're going to have to start a great deal earlier if you want to needle me over that...

Hey, did you know that Mata isn't cup-tied? That will be a big help to... ah, crap...

Rumors heating up that a fee for Draxler was reached. God damn I hate silly season; it raises my hopes sky high over and over again. But I'm too weak to ignore it
 
2014-01-24 06:07:01 PM  
On another note, why did Barcelona even consider building a new stadium? I know they switched their plans to renovating the Camp Nou, but why wasn't that the plan in the first place? It's one of the best-known stadia in the world. I know I'd be livid if Real tried replacing the Bernabeu.

In fact no.  My mother says closer to Lenin but I remind her that Lenin had a lot less hair than I do

/Yeah not happy that he chase of Alonso either

BTW, does anybody know why those two games were played yesterday? I'm not seeing any obvious clashes that, for example, might have caused the police to ask for a rescheduling.

Split rights between broadcasters means a greater spread of KO times.

Hey, that's pretty good stuff right there. I think it could use a bit more tactical info, impact of the subs, partnerships that were working or not working, but definitely good overall. Well done!
