    I expect at least one more goal for Chelsea, they dominate the game, Steau with no chances so far.
    Celtic still 0-0, Barca with more ball possession but Celtic parks the bus cleverly ;)
    Now watching arsenal.....they have a run, very attractive football but I dont expect them playing that way for the whole season....

    4-0, thats a comfortable win over Steau, I guess today is a good day for Chelsea fans ? ;)
    Btw- Arsenal is very impressive at the moment, when is Chelsea playing against Arsenal in the EPL ?
    This will be a tough game....

    Did anybody notice these protests yesterday ?

    Though I think we should keep politics out of football I must admit that I support Greenpeace.
    To me Gazprom is one of the most ruthless companies worldwide. Fortunately they would never be accepted to be our main sponsor here in Hamburg.
    Another reason why I cant stand Schalke, they just sold their souls for a pile of dirty money.....

    To be honest i really hate politics in Football, be it from the left or the right. Its one of my biggest turn offs. I watch the game to escape from such things. I have no problem with Greenpeace, but there are better ways of getting their message across than pulling off stunts like that.

    I can see your point PackerFan71 and I basically I feel the same but how can we keep these things out of football if we let companies like Gazprom be a part of our football society though we all know Gazprom is nothing but the extended arm of V.Putin.
    So I'm on two minds on this to be honest....:confused:;)

    But back to football and more pleasant topics: Anybody watching Bayern against City tonight? :)

    End of the first half and it's starting to get chippy on the pitch.

    Indeed Croak - nasty fouls at the end of the first half.
    Where do you watch, did you sign a new Goal TV subscription ? ;)

    At first, I thought Manchester City would be a problem. But they really didn't present a big challenge to Bayern until near the end when Schweini, Robben and Ribery were taken out. Then the red card on Boateng and things started to get interesting. Somehow I thought City was a more powerful team than they showed today. I usually have bad things to say about Boateng, and today he had some mistakes, but his red card was a "take one for the team" deal I think. If he hadn't done what he did, City probably would have scored, but with Neuer you never know.

    Poor showing from the Manc's losing 1-3 at home with all due respect to Bayern is embarrassing. Home advantage should have made them get at least a draw. :rolleyes:

    My question is why does Bayern play like this in cup games, but in their league games they look more tentative?
