    Chelsea - PSG had high entertainment value.

    Madrid supporters booed the team after their defeat before Schalke, even though they have moved on to the next round. They also applauded the Schalke team when the match was over. If this goes on, this year will see a lot of shuffling, old faces leaving and new ones arriving.

    PSG deserved to win that game.. I have no idea why our players were so damn tired.. They looked exhausted out there, and the were playing against 10 men! And they didn't play any games over the weekend!

    Mourinho messed up here, I reckon. I think he put the team through a very very demanding weekend training session regiment.. I don't know what else it could be. It's not like they all went out drinking the night before the game or something.

    matic looked exhausted from the 10th minute onwards

    cesc was pretty invisible

    psg's players flat out outplayed chelsea's players. the worst player on psg was probably sirigu to be honest.

    Matic has been injured and hasn't been playing due to a ban. So I expected him to be a bit rusty.. but everybody else should have been in great shape.

    I agree about Fabregas, he can sometimes disappear in big games.. but sometimes he shines. Not very consistent when it comes to important games like these.. but maybe Mourinho will knock some sense into him.

    If you set out to not-lose… well, you end up, strictly, not losing the match.
    ManYoo have been pedestrian for a couple years now and you'd beaten them once in the last fifteen matches.

    No lawsuit - they got the tv rights for the next World Cup, bid free :crazyeye:

    Anyone else catch Bhutan's game today ? They're now historically undefeated in World Cup qualifying.

    Yay! Bhutan, all right!
    Not sure Hodgson is the right choice for England team Manager. He fails to recognize the skills of such talents as Kane and Austin.

    Neverkusen continues to meet expectations. A game ripe for their taking vs atletico but failing to ever take a killer edge and then followed up by some sorry excuses for penalties, kind of their trademark

    Yet we still have two French teams still alive!

    I also hate how the big CONCACAF teams don't take the CONCACAF Champions League as seriously. Mexico's Club America losing to a Costa Rican team 3-0 with pretty much all their #2s in.

    Are you of the caphalopodian persuasion, Mr. fire?
    It's all a conspiracy. England's teams don't have English managers. Or English players. Or English fans, for that matter.
    That's because Libertadores>CONCACAF.
