It's a rainy, boring Tuesday afternoon where I am, but hopefully you our fair reader are close to a television set and can watch this afternoon's Champion's League matches. Or there's always the usual minute-by-minute blogs. Check out the fixtures and share your thoughts after the jump. (Oh, and check out our fancy new URL... but please do not bitch if things go kerflooey.)








Zenit St Petersburg v. Juventus are almost over with a nil-nil draw, the rest of the games start at 2:45 EST (suck it, Greenwich Mean!).

Please don't forget Exeter City v. Rotherham either.

Norwich are at home to Palace too. The CL isn't the 'be all' of everything!!

Someone at the BBC live ticker thing points out that Arsenal are starting seven left-footed players tonight. That has to be some kind of CL record, right?

Bigus Dickus said...

So no explosive action in the Juve Zenit game then?

The Fan's Attic said...

Just in the pre-match buildup.

The NY Kid said...

oh, Bigus. Behave

Spectator said...

After that it pretty much fizzled. (Zing!!)

Spectator said...

Teletubby Ronaldo is playing for Man U for those of you keeping track.

Bigus Dickus said...

Wolves one up. Iwelumo again. 7 in 8.

Bigus Dickus said...

Swindon 1:0 Peterbrough.

Thats for Auto..

Bigus Dickus said...

Norwich game was stopped after the lino broke his flag and had to go and get a new one.

Bongo 1 Ipshit 0. Get in Bongo!

Bigus Dickus said...

Kevin Phillips! Bongo 2 Ipshit 0

Bigus Dickus said...

Same old Norwich. 1 down.

Nathaniel said...

CL open thread or Colaship Open thread? You be the judge.

Bigus Dickus said...

Any action in the CL? Nope, In the Colaship? Plenty.

Kopper said...

I care more about the colaship anyways...

Nathaniel said...

Was for joke, bigus...

I have just happily discovered that the hospital I work at is eligible for ESPN360. Score!

Bigus Dickus said...

Oh I know...Thats awesome, tell me about those 0-0's...:)

Kopper said...

Canaries down 2-0. Roeder out!

Bigus Dickus said...

I can take no more of this inconsistent crap. AGHHHHHHHHHH!

Nathaniel said...

I could keep track of the number of times CR is down on the ground on his ass, sighing heavily.

Spectator said...

Marcos Senna is going to be subbed due to an injury, Teletubby had a very nice shot on goal saved by Villareal, but otherwise not much going on in Man U land.

Bigus Dickus said...

GOALLLL. Matty Patty. Like busses. None for an hr then 2 in 2 minutes.

The lad waited a year for his first. Crackin'.

Andrew said...

between me not being able to get the NFL Network or access ESPN360, I'm gonna say "screw TV" and get all my sports info from the net or newspapers.

Andrew said...

Capdevilla makes a hard tackle on Teletubby. Got a deserved red. Still . . .

Keith said...

So Ridgewell and Super Kev score for the Bluenoses, eh? iiiiiiinteresting.

Andrew said...

12 goals in 8 games so far today. Wonderful attacking football, yeah?

Yeah!?

Andrew said...

Bendtner for Gunners in the 86th. We're through to the knockout-stages, thanks to the Danish Sulk.

Sarah said...

I think it was Bendtner's magic bubblegum pink shoes that won it for us.

Andrew said...

Bayern looked strong today. I wouldn't want to see them in the knockouts.

Spectator said...

The way that Arsenal's season has been going, I'll take the 1-0 shaky win to put us into the knockout stage!

Oh, and Exeter drew but sneak back into the League Two playoff spots.
