I loved Baines's goal vs Tottenham.
And Ronaldo just scored 4(!) goals against Racing. Omg. I don't know if he's crazy, if he's on drugs, or if it is the Mourinho effect.

It's that Racing is just 1 point away from relegation XD

And that RM always loves scoring half a dozen goals against weak teams. As long as they keep losing 2-0 to Barça, I'll be fine.

I love how its mainly EPL-La Liga with a bit of internationals in here.

I'm quite surprised there is no MLS chat going on.

I'm going to go ahead and shot some SPL in here, Celtic-Rangers today and both of them have a 100% record going into the match.

The Americans i've spoken to weren't even aware that the MLS existed, so yeah.

To sum up this weekend's football then;
* Ugh @ Man Utd winning (Back to being the BESTEST TEAM EVAAAR, then) and that horrible little scrotum Hernandez scoring twice.
* So, so glad Arsenal thumped shitty at Eastlands. Should shut their moron fans up.. for a couple of hours at least.
* The league is still Chelsea's to lose, they were totally unconvincing against Wolves and yet came away with a comfortable 2-0 win and never looked like losing. Strongest team in the Prem this year by a mile.
* Someone should actually set fire to Andy Carroll.
* LMAO @ Celtic.

That's about it ^^

    Funny, I consider you a horrible little scrotum.

    Manchester United aren't the best team ever you idiot. Far from it. I support them and I know we aren't up to par.

    La Liga this weekend: Valencia lost to Mallorca because a defender kicked the grass too harshly- penalty, of course, for a final 1-2. Athletic lost to Sevilla after the referee considered that the Sevilla player Negredo, who had committed a foul in Athletic's box, was now playing for Athletic and conceded a penalty instead of a goal kick, for a final 4-3.

    Then the best show happened in Villarreal 2 - 0 Atlético: the referee refused to concede three obvious penalties on Agüero. After the second one, he immediately called the end of the first half, even though the ball was still around Villarreal's box, and sent Atlético's coacher off for protesting. Just beautiful.

      I don't believe we've spoken before, so i'm guessing you dislike me because of the above post?

      Part in bold = a tad unnecessary tbh. The rest, full agreed. When I watched them a few weeks ago (Live, not on Sky) they were absolutely shocking. And from what I can gather that's how they've been playing so far this season.

      Like I said in my previous post; the league is Chelsea's to lose.

        Our team doesn't rely on anyone anymore, we're missing Valencia because we don't have a good replacement for him. (I bet Obertan would do the trick if he were given the chance)

        Man city won't win this year. I don't think Chelsea are stoppable unless a team steps forward with a hefty January transfer budget.

        I saw that too, insane.



        Middlesbrough are in the relegation zone of the championship and they're attracting their lowest attendaces for years, it isn't looking good, especially since the club is rumoured to have a few debts to pay as well.

          I was at the celtic game, in the away site of course, supporting rangers. Felt so bad when hooper scored, but when Lafferty scored the whole place just erupted, and when miller scored that strike, i think i was 10 rows infront of were my seat was. Celtic can moan about it not being a penalty for the third, but still, WE beat them, not the ref, let's all laugh at Lennon.

            Boro have hired Tony Mowbray, hopefully he won't repeat his shocking spell at Celtic.

            If he does, it might be league one football next season for Boro.

              You were expecting anything other?

              There aren't that many smaller teams in it anymore, and they're the only ones who take the competition seriously. Man United will win it again.

              Edit; Or will they? Wolves have equalised again ♥

              And also O: @ Brentford, would be an amazing win for them against Birmingham.

              In the Spanish Cup, Real Madrid managed not to lose against their 3rd league rivals for once. Instead, they tied 0-0. That's an improvement after their constant defeats during the last decade.

              Barça is winning 0-2 by now. It should be easy.

              Meh, no real shocks tonight. Only Brentford holding Brum to a draw at St Andrews is the only point of interest.

              Could well be pens again.

              I am liking how Hernandez has really settled into the club and has scored 3 goals in quick succession.

              Just what United need to take the focus off the idiot, Rooney.

              Were you at OT tonight? What did you make of Bebe?

              Gutted for Brentford, kind of hoped they'd squeeze past Birmingham on pens but no such luck. No shame in how they went out though.

              I wasn't there no; I am in Bristol currently, so a little tougher to get back to games, but I do make it every so often.

              Bebe, I haven't seen that much of him really, but glad he scored. Would like to see more.

              Ah right, fair play. The last game I was at was Sunderland against United, with the Stadium of Light being the closest ground to where I live. I'd love to get to more matches tbh but I don't really "support" any team as such, I do follow a few however and like to keep an eye out for their results.

              Bebe got half an hour or so in the game against Sunderland funnily enough, but tbh he didn't look particularly good. Although it was his first appearance so it was probably a little harsh to judge, I still think Sir Alex has taken a gamble. Who knows though, he got his first goal for United tonight so it may still pay off yet.

                I wouldn't say he is brilliant, just on form.
                He is very inexperienced and I don't think we should be already thinking about putting him in the starting 11. He should be in the first team, just not starting all the time. Next season, if he keeps up like this, he is a starter for sure.
