    Kudos to Cluj. Two impressive results. If they can get 3 points or better from their two games with Bordeaux then they might even leave Roma looking at the UEFA Cup.

    I'll give my kudos to Werder.

    It's not thet I'm against Inter... but for one week, it will be nice to be spared Joselito preaching against Italian football.

    Yeah we saw some amazing shots yesterday. Or it would be more appropriate to say we saw a lot of poor denfending.

    Unfortunate for Celtic that they got the two offside goals.
    I still can´t understand how Staeu managed to lose that one.
    Porto losing at home was the only real surprise yesterday.
    Juve seems to be back in business.

    can´t wait for tonight

    5:0? this must be getting really ugly...
    meanwhile in madrid, the ref has denied liverpool a prefectly fine goal for "offside"...

    now he disallowed a perfectly fine athletico goal for "offside"...
    add this to two not given penalties for either side in the first half...

    that's some bad refereeing...

    The refs admitted their mistakes in the Man U Celtic game. They were lucky that Man U scored a legal goal, and that one of their three goal mistakes was ruling a good goal offside. Personally, I do not share their confidence in asserting that Manchester would have won anyway. It only opened up because the illegal goals forced Celtic to gamble more. In truth I'm getting really sick of decisions going against Scottish teams just because the opposition are bigger ... it's happening too consistently.

    impressive to gain a point in nou camp for everyone, let alone fc basel indeed.

    do they have realistic chances for the uefa cup?

    if they manage to beat Shaktar in the away game, the chances aren't bad...but that's not exactly an easy feat for Basel.....

    Roma played well, but dove way too much.

    Deco didn't deserve the first nor the second yellow.

    Stupid referee.

    IIRC 'dove' is a correct alternative to 'dived'.

    although he might have been thinking of the german term and mixed up the birds ;)
