Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

All the better when you realise Arsenal's previous tie ended 6-1. And now they're playing Bradford, so it could well be the 'third set'

I have a terrible feeling Swansea are going to win the damn thing.

Is it bad that I'm starting to hope Southampton beat our record low points tally?

I'm pretty sure we had more points by this time in the season as well!

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Anyone been following the Real Oviedo story?

The team are in the third tier of Spanish football, and are in dire need of funding, and may be out of business by the 17th November.

They started to sell shares publicly and have a major PR thing going on to get people interested. Signed up myself actually. The story is here - http://www.realoviedo.es/weboficial/...IdNoticia=7956

Always wanted to own a part of a football club!

As for the rascism thing going on with the Refs in England. I think Chelsea picked a very bad time to start that, if it turns out to be false, strange that a ref would say it too. Interesting times with it ahead.

Always nice seeing Barcelona beaten.

Yeah, the Guardian's Spanish football writer, Sid Lowe, is a big backer of this scheme and has been promoting it for a few weeks now. Didn't realise the situation was quite as desperate as it actually is, 17th November isn't too far away. Hope they work it out. Especially cruel as so many of Spain's top flight teams are in administration and debt-ridden - 6 or 7 of them, I think.

Leeds 1 Watford 6. It would take a heart of stone not to laugh. Now, if Cardiff could just win away as well as at home (8 wins out of 8), I'd be a lot happier. I can't keep going to the likes of Palace and Charlton and seeing 2 goal leads obliterated.

I like that Celtic followed up beating Barca by draeing at home to the mighty St Johnstone too.

On the bright side, at least whenever he plays against an English team or the national side in future, the commentators can now STFU about how he plays poorly against them.

Great performance, fantastic goals, and one absolute peach of opportunism. I can't even think of many other strikers who'd have even thought about trying that. F*cking brilliant.

A good evening for me yesterday : a win against Italy, it's never bad, and Zlatan will come back to Paris in a very good mood.

I saw that PSG lost at home to Rennes - I have no idea if that's a surprise or not - are Rennes any good?

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

It's an average team. To tell the truth, it's a little no...very ridiculous : losing against a team of only 9 players (2 reds) at home
It's the usual november crisis, it's what tells me that even with Qatar, it's still my team

Lost against 9 men? Superb.

I've since learned too that Ibra was suspended. Says it all really

Ah, yes, Zlatan said he wanted to leave his footprint on the Ligue 1. 2 weeks ago, we learnt that "Ligue 1" was apparently the nickname of Saint-Etienne's goal keeper
