1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Not denying it. We shut down after the 1st half and never bounced back from Sanchez' strike. The look on his face was pretty similar to my own.

    yeah Spurs should have won. Mostly Spurs looked pretty bad, especially at the beginning when Stoke ran riot over them. But in the second half:

    -- There was a clear penalty in the box on that corner where the Stoke player used both hands to pull a Spurs player down by their left arm. That was flagrant. And...
    -- Adebayor appeared to have been onside on that goal that was called for offsides.

    I watched part of Inter/Fiorentina. The stadium was 1/2 full, as is usually the case with Italian games. Why do Italians not go to see their teams in person?

    Shit ref in shit reffing shocker. I don't understand why the FA like to let him officiate for big games or derby matches when he's clearly not upto the job. Then again most Premier League refs are useless, I don't know why but the Football League ones are much better, maybe they don't want to be the centre of attention every game.

    I'm guessing that very few on this board have had exposure to Mexico's domestic football but its top division had the second leg of the championship series contested today. Pretty entertaining match.



    The video doesn't show what happened in the lead up to the opening scene (red card in the box).

    Not going to lie, I was scared....and after 0:25 REALLY SCARED. Having seen both teams in person, RM is a SCARY fast team.

    I think, more than anything, the notion of Mourinho as master tactician and Barca killer has been put to rest. He finally had the situation he wanted...team in better form, up on points, with momentum...and splat.

    Oh, and CR7....dude was a no show again. :confused: You know it's bad when RM fans on their message boards finally own up to the fact that the dude straight disappears during the big ones.

    He most certainly does. What makes me laugh is that some fans out there still try to claim that Messi does as well; I am sure that has been debunked for the past 2 years, especially Vs. Madrid. I cant even count his goals and assists against them..

    And today Juve - Roma. Should be a good one even though Enrique will probably come to kill the game. I foresee 0-0 or 1-0 Juve. So good to have the Old Lady back!

    Forza La Vecchia Signora!

    According to the ESPN site and their TV schedule it is indeed the case.

    Every time I see Mata on the ball, I cry a little to see him in blue
