Soooo United didn't get trashed Athletico got an absolute screamer , Dortmund are trashed and PSG beat Chelsea pretty comfortably. The only interesting second leg will be Barcelona Athletico.

They didn't beat us comfortably if you actually watched the game. They had the better start but one chance after we scored in the first half, and Hazard hit the post with a scuffed volley. Second half was even for most of it and Lavezzi played really well. Torres was w*** as usual and Cech needs to be replaced by Courtois as he can't command the area well enough any more. Love him to bits, pulls off at least one properly world class save a year and still a good shot stopper but too many times we've conceded sloppy goals because he's been complacent and thought an effort wouldn't go in so left it. Nothing Luiz could have done about their second. Pastores was a good goal from an average player, Cech should have stopped it but he shouldn't have been allowed to get the shot in in the first place. Definitely didn't deserve to be beaten 3-1, 2-1 was fair enough. Second leg will be tough but manageable without Zlatan. Thought he and Cavani were awful on Wednesday too, managed about one decent effort between them in the whole 90 minutes.

BT are certainly taking the fight to Sky. Prem, Ligue 1, Bundesliga, Serie A, Europa League, Champions League, FA cup, only thing they haven't got is La Liga, although i'm sure some games will end up there sooner or later.

Worst thing about the deal is we'll only see the big games on TV such as the final. No group games or knockout matches on itv. Perhaps only a matter of time before the same happens to the World Cup and Euro's.

Second half was even ? It was anything but even. the only time Chelsea got into the swing of things was for about 20 mins after the first goal. Besides that it was PSG on the offensive pretty much the rest of the game. Besides that I agree with everything else you said. Lavezzi played well , Willian too.  I doubt Chelsea will come back but at least they have an away goal. Imbrahimovic and Cavani played rubbish. Hazard couldn't have done much better with the volley to be fair. And of coy]urse I watched the match , I wouldn't have commented on it otherwise.  :)>-

Don't worry so are we, could've should've won at Leicester, and at Wigen where we were winning but let 2 goals in a few mins. Yeovil have lost around 30 points from winning positions so just shows how well we've done considering we have a l2 budget in Championship. Paddy Madden who was L1 top scorer last season, went to Scunthorpe and gets paid more

I would have never thought Ipswich would be within reach of the play-offs at this stage of the season.

Had a great start when Sherwood took over from AVB but it seeems we're falling apart again we need another striker and sort our damned defence out we'll struggle to make it into europe at this rate never mind challenging for a CL spot

I don't know who the bigger jokes are. Spurs or Arsenal.

Because the match just had to be on at the exact same time as the race I didn't see what was going on in Liverpool v West Ham. Needed two penalties to win? Not good.

Can't wait for the World Cup, though I reckon some of the matches will be at ungodly hours.
I can't wait either. One of my favourite events of all time. Getting excited now. :-h

Europe , no , Australia , yes.  :-h L-)

Well I'm used to it. We can't have everything,
right? A perfect country needs to stay isolated from the forces of evil. 

EDIT: Quoting's broken.
