I sit down to play for what feels like 20 minutes, and it's been 3 hours
Intense game as some said time flys when you play this game, remember playing football manager 1999/2000.
Really looking forward to watching Newcastle V Chelsea at the Bridge. Can't see the Maggies sitting back and defending even tho it is away from home.
Also my boys playing away at the newly relegated Blackburn need a win after dropping a winable game during the week.
Rooney's gash was pretty nasty. My question: Was there a big chunk of Rooney skin stuck on that guys boot? Or was it on the pitch? Yuck.

CL Draw: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1...ts-and-bracket
Very solid Group of Death this year: Real Madrid, Man City, Ajax and Dortmund. Every team won their league last year.
I recently started watching EPL. I used to quasi follow Bayern Munich but its hard to find them on TV. Anyway I bought a few shares of Manchester United stock so I am an owner () and a fan! Occasionally I will flip to Fox Soccer and watch the game that is being played. I did find Man City's style pretty fun to watch. The Liverpool Man City game a few days ago was entertaining to watch.
I have found that regular season games are much more open than the big tournaments (Euro, World Cup, etc.) Its almost as if in the major tournaments the midfielders control the game and cup while in league play its the forwards who control the game.
Here is the CL groups.
A Porto Dynamo Kiev Paris Saint-Germain Dinamo Zagreb
B Arsenal Schalke Olympiacos Montpellier
C AC Milan Zenit St. Petersburg Anderlecht Malaga
D Real Madrid Manchester City Ajax Borussia Dortmund
E Chelsea Shakhtar Donetsk Juventus Nordsjaelland
F Bayern Munich Valencia Lille Bate Borisov
G Barcelona Benfica Spartak Moskow Celtic
H Manchester United Braga Galatasaray CFR Cluj
Have fun with that Man City
