Oh, those UEFA rules letting Arsenal be a seeded team despite getting in to the group stage via the backdoor method every year.

Dammit. The only channel that's showing it is Fox Deportes? Why the hell don't I have Fox Deportes? Stupid cheap ass roommate doesn't pay for Fox Deportes. I want to watch Sorteo UEFA Champions League.

Unfreakable: Ludogorets Razgrad (Bulgaria)


Oh, did you guys see how the quoted team won yesterday? Their keeper was sent off and they had to put a defender in as keeper. All he did was save 2 penalties and score 1 himself.
