    Finally got around to watching Dortmund - Malaga, how is it possible Dortmund didn't score 7? They ripped Malaga apart over and over and over again. Malaga had a decent spell at the end of the 1st period but this was otherwise a total domination.

    The tactics and coaching of Dortmund were absolutely spot on, unfortunately the players didn't deliver. Their a glorious side to watch, the streamlined interplay thru midfield, high IQ play up front, great pressing and tactical awareness thru the 11, just a great side. I hope they don't blow this as I want to see them in the final.

    Málaga won't take them back in Germany. They'll go through.

    With that injury to Bale tonight, Tottenham's hopes of top-4 have just disappeared.

    Jose's trolling knows no bounds. he is hell bent on crushing iker and establishing his supremacy before quitting by season's end...

    I don't know. Casillas and Ramos act like they are above the club and JM notices it. If he doesn't feel like he's in form he's obliged to sit him.

    I suspect you can't offer any evidence he's worthy of the place save for his history. The guy is back from injury and the dude in goal hasn't put a foot wrong. Look, JM is exposed, if his choice in goal makes some critical errors and costs them, he's going to get slathered in the press. Why would he do that unless he believed in the guy?

    I'd be the first to say San Iker "merits" a spot. But TBH, his form this season, even before injury, wasn't up to par. Diego López has almost single-handedly turned our season around. Play him till he falters.

    Iker's a big boy. He'll understand if the club is as important to him as he'd make out.

    Barça protesting: surprise, surprise.

    Diego concedes, and Higuain gets another easy tap-in after Benz was erroneously ruled offside minutes earlier..

    You should bro. If they get thru, you should probably be able to see them. I've watched them about 10 times this season and am thoroughly impressed. I'd be proud to seem them crowned European Champions, it would be a well deserved accolade for a a great coach that has build a fantastic program in a city that prizes its club.

    I know German footie gets shit on but Dortmund is really the club we should all be rooting for.

    Damn Sunderland for not holding Chelsea to a draw. Yes I still have hope that Arsenal can go higher in the table.

    On the relegation front, it looks pretty hopeless for Redknapp and QPR. Can't see him staying with the club if they go down.

    Whoa whoa - getting too close now. 3-1 Gala.

    EDIT: Crap - I leave the stream for 10 minutes and suddenly it looks like Gala could pull something out of the hat.
