Our last thread is over 1000 posts so I thought I would take the liberty of starting a new one. :) sorry about the cheesy title but I kinda like it. :shuffle: Anyway Chelsea, Newcastle and Spurs are both in action today in the Europa League. Good luck to them, but since I have a soft spot for Inter I wll not be too put out if Spurs lost. LOL Good luck to Chelsea today too and here are the other matches that are on.

Anji v Newcastle
Steaua v Chelsea
Stuttgart v Lazio
Plzeň v Fenerbahçe
Spurs v Inter Milan
Benfica v Bordeaux
Basel v Zenit
Levante v Rubin

¡Fútbol es el mejor! Hurray for 1st grade Spanish. I'm actually happy Steaua beat Chelsea. If they keep not showing up for games, they deserve to lose. Plus it's been ages since a Romanian team has done well in a UEFA championship.

Toronto FC actually won a game!!! I'm so happy right now because I also had the pleasure of watching it on the tele. We beat KFC 2-1! :cheer2:

Except in Italy, where it is calcio.

NJL (...In the USA & Canada "soccer" is quite acceptable & proper, so a Canukistani using it is appropriate....:P...)

My darling boys drew 2-2 with Chelsea to cap off a rough week. :(

Why can't Messi play like this for Argentina during the WC?!

There were some WC qualifiers today and one of the biggest casualties was Serbia who lost 2-0 to Croatia. The Serbs were greeted with chants of "Kill Kill Kill Serbs!" during the match which was played in Croatia. Maybe it is time to play these games in neutral countries?!

Meanwhile Germany beats Kazaksthan 3-0, Wales beats Scotland 2-1, England beat San Marino 8-0, N. Ireland's match was postponed, and while I am on the subject of England, Theo Walcott is out with injury and Michael Owen is retiring. Oh yeah and Spain drew 1-1 with Finland which must have made the Fins day! hehehehe

David Beckham is in China on a goodwill tour as "football embassador" which is very tightly managed. But most Chinese fans prefer watching foreign teams rather anything home grown and the Chinese NMT has already crashed out of Brazil qualifiers.

WOW! Must have been quite the Match! Congratulations! :cheer2:
