    Underlining why we chose him to be at the centre of football's degrees of separation, Zlatan Ibrahimovic becomes the first player to appear in the Champions League for 7 (SEVEN) different clubs. Not sure whether this is an all-time record or merely post-rebrand, though.

    longeared mat not agree but 2nd half if Ipswich Wednesday has been pretty good with plenty of attacking football from both sides.

    Plucky Manchester United bravely held out for 89 minutes, but Basel have snatched it at the death.

    Staking their claim as the new Sevilla.

    A loss to CSKA will set them up nicely.

    Here's an interesting stat.

    PSG have scored 24 and conceded 1 so far in these group stages.

    The only one of those goals scored by a player who came through their youth system is the one they conceded.

    Yeah, second half was a very watchable game of football (and I would have said that before our late late equaliser). Fair result but shouldn't disguise our woeful defending or flimsy attacking threat.

    I watched the Celtic game in a gay bar yesterday. It was not only depressing to watch, but also to hear the comments about the mismatch in looks between the two sides.

    Cavani definitely very popular with the (admittedly disinterested) clientele.

    Sète trente-quatre haven't conceded sept in onze matches (in national deux) in dix-sept-dix-huit.

    Played 11, For 9, Against 5.

    Probably not the most exciting team to watch. But there'd be more reason to stay for the second half than at PSG.

    Sète would wipe the floor with the Parisians at nautical jousting.

    Is the green-and-white hoops the only football shirt to have been sponsored by a spa (Les thermes de Balaruc-les-Bains)?

    Last time I saw Sète34 play (that was in the 1970s & early 80s – we had relatives there, still do – just plain FC Sète then, in Division 2/3), their back 4 was often at 6s and 7s, especially when Troyes (3) were in town.

    I once saw Bourg-en-Bresse FC (a club from the Ain department, 1) totally sink (5) Sète, pathetic, it’s when I understood why they call Sète the "Venice of the Languedoc", they were often all at sea. I remember saying to myself "enough is enough" after that, in French of course (un œuf est un 9).

    Right, you can fill in your Lottery ticket now.


    (*don't know about the spa & football but pretty sure Serge Blanco's big thalassotherapy-wellness-hotel complex near Biarritz used to - or still do maybe - sponsor a rugby club in the Basque country)

    One could try to make an argument for Evian Thionon Gaillard FC during their brief period of glory, but I would give any such attempt the thumbs down (see also Perrier’s long time Coupe de France sponsorship). My guess is that you would find amateur clubs in some of the German “Bad” towns that are sponsored by proper spas (see also Karloff Vary, etc]
