Good afternoon folks. The UEFA Champions League returns this afternoon with another assortment of quality match-ups for you fans of top-quality European soccer. You have Villarrea-Manchester United and Lyon-Fiorentina as headliners, along with some other intriguing tilts, such as Arsenal-Dynamo Kiev.

If you will be watching today's matches, please feel free to share your thoughts, opinions and some play-by-play in the comments section below.

Enjoy the action.


  1. I think it’s per game Mike, although if you play for another team in a CL game in a year, you can’t appear for another club. That was my take-away, I think Jozy can do just as well finishing with that midfield creating chances. Franco has 16 goals in 64 games. I’d bet the over on Altidore topping that.

    Anyway, totally hate when they show ManU when even ManU doesn’t really care about the game. Couldn’t believe they’d trot out the youngsters but not play Tevez. Might as well sell him.

    Much better was the Porto-Fenerbahce match won by Porto 2-1. They clinched in style, but Fenerbahce was playing with pride. I’m disappointed the revolution never came about under Aragones, they’ve taken a step backwards.

    I hope Lyon put together a run this year, which has to be Benzema’s last. I’m rooting for Juninho, who’s been through it all with all the great talent developed than sold around him. I’d love to see the two of them make a run to the finals and shake up the tournament.

  2. Jozy can be added on for the knock-out rounds in the New Year.

    It will be interesting to see if he makes the bench this weekend. If not, I think that points directly to a loan deal in January. As many have pointed out he can’t be loaned out if he makes another appearance for Villarreal.

  3. Once a champion’s league roster is made, can it be changed?

    Can Altidore be added on to it? Or will he have to wait till next year?


  4. Liverpool will crush Marseille tomorrow. Keane should net a goal and so should Torres if not a hat trick. And with Benyaoun and Babel featuring even as subs, game should easily be wrapped up.

  5. Thank god for the Great Dane-Bendtner. I was hoping Arsenal would draw, but they pulled it back.

    Any chance Arsenal will improve in the CL? Who might they face in the round of 16?

  6. I agree. Altidore’s speed and fresh legs could have added a bit of element toward the last 15mins of the game. He should have been on the bench.

  7. ALTIDORE would’ve have netted a goal and VILLAREAL would have defeated UNITED today.

    Should have put him on the roster today, instead of franco……or anyone for that matter. shoulda, woulda, coulda.
