Lot of respect for Sir Alex as a coach. Plays fair and respects the game of football.

Game of the century in Portugal today. 2 games left and Benfica leads Porto by 2 points. They play one another today.

I will be having heart attacks 4 hours from now. Lol
on that Wigan goal call, was the Brit laughing at the fox sports guy or just happy for the Wiggers?

Really? He's been pretty subpar. Thankfully I'm flying into Berlin days before the Final so I won't be forced to watch it with Gus Johnson announcing....what a joke Fox.

Even though he attended some kind of soccer boot camp, his knowledge is below average
- Benetiz won the 2005 Champions League with Chelsea
- Manchester United won every title but one in the Premier League era
- Hazard and Mata had about 4 different pronunciations of their names

And he adds nothing strategy wise to the telecast. His announcing is a little over the top, exhibiting no calmness which is a staple in United Kingdom play by play. When FSC does the weekly highlights & lowlights, his announcing clearly sticks out like a sore thumb.

Could be worse but could also be better. Hopefully he improves for the World Cup. ESPN has all the good announcers locked up.

If this is true...



Barthelona fans must be crying!
...would love (absolutely love) to have Neymar come to Barca - but if he chooses another club..that's fine too. lol @ crying. Barca made 6 straight CL semis (first club to achieve that)...and won La Liga against a pretty damn good Real Madrid team. I think Barca will do fine without a player they never had.

I want a top CB in the summer. Anything else will be like Christmas.
