    Yup, I went to the game. Qarabag were OK - held and passed the ball well and fought hard but their 'keeper wasn't the best and they didn't offer a lot coming forward which, I suppose, are fairly sizable handicaps if you want to win a football game!

    I thought we looked good. Christensen was very impressive at the back (Cahill not so much - lovely guy but a bit of a weak link in the side these days - dived in again and got a yellow card that could have been red) and Willian was back to his energetic self after his lacklustre performance at Leicester last weekend.

    There will, however, be much tougher tests ahead.
    Yeah, after 50 years of Bridgery, I'm now 'armchair' only, which is still a lot better than nothing, given that I have Sky & BT Sport which I can watch in my smoking-permitted lounge with no twats to ruin my evening, queues for the loo/bar/tea hut etc. Job's a good 'un, basically - I had a good run, starting in the Shed at age 12 in '66.

    Christensen does indeed look the part - 50m is the going rate for a decent centre-half now, isn't it? Bargainous bit of business. Loved Zappacosta, even if his crossing was a bit variable, wink. Cahill certainly looks to be feeling the pressure of competition (or something) lately, even though I really don't agree with the amount of flak he's started to get.

    As you say, tougher tests ahead, but a decent start with the other result.

    This has started well.

    Bad news, I've just got home and turned on the Spurs Dortmund match. That's the end of the goals.

    Ah, I was wondering whether you had lost your mojo.

    Could you switch to another game for about ten minutes so that Dortmund can turn this one around? Thanks much.

    Well well Liverpool, the specter of the Howe/Gerrard dream team Poundstretcher budget but plenty of Passion and English Heart to make up for it looms ever closer.

    Why was Gomez sent off and how did he wind up getting sent off when Moreno and the sevilla right back (esquedero?) spent most of the game desperately trying to pick up a second yellow? did he say something awful to the ref or something?

    Poor fuckin Robertson. He'll probably get his first real run as a right back (why the hell didn't they go in for a rb if Clyne was out till Christmas?).

    Klopp will string out a few seasons of these Desmonds before he is rumbled. The two Manchester clubs starting well should just make the eventual tonking by Real or Bayern all the sweeter. Have any of the clubs who started the Champions Route back in July got a chance of progressing from a group?

    hah. oops. I forgot about the best Desmond.

    I was wondering if years of watching MOTD had unbalanced Satchmo's mind. I used to quite like Des Lynam, he seemed quite good at his job. And I had literally no idea on the rare occasions when I got to see MOTD that he was Irish. But all of that is replaced with a giant question. Why is someone from Ennis, whose name literally means South-Munster The Leinsterman a Ukip supporter? How does that work? I mean that Ann Marie Waters woman is obviously dangerously unhinged, and a complete fucking menace. But Des fucking Lynam? I can just about get my head around the children of Irish people voting for UKIP, They're not actually migrants themselves. but actual real life Irish born people, who emigrated to the UK? It hurts my brain to think about it.

    Morrissey claims to have an Irish heart but is somewhat dodgy on racial matters. Pulling up the drawbridge?

    Did anyone see how Sevilla's manager for himself sent to the stands? It was hilarious!

    Keylor Navas and Sergio Ramos use three hands to keep the ball out of the goal. No foul given, of course.

    I like that Shakhtar Donetsk are playing in a mid-1980s Luton kit. Hopefully their manager will skip across the pitch at the end if they hang on for a draw.
