    Yesterday was the MLS SuperDraft (I know how weird a soccer draft must seem haha) and, surprisingly, a goal keeper was selected first overall by the Philadelphia Union. Not surprising was who it was: UConn's Andre Blake. Kid's an animal

    How does American Football (ha) work if they can have a draft but also sign players...?

    Haha its a little weird for sure. Like European football, we have academies, but these are not guaranteed signings. So, like all of our other sports, we draft players who play at the collegiate level only (meaning they played a college career and are willing to get drafted by a team they have no control over). But they can sign all undrafted players, players who's contracts where declined, or free agents.

    ....basically, the draft is for college players.

    American football is very... interesting XD Anymore questions, just ask me! XD

    Uhh half time and United are 2-0 down to chelsea. The Cameoon poacher Samuel Eto'o scoring twice. Its just gonna be another day at the office if United dont get their act together. And on a side note, why did AVB drop Adebeyor?

    Final score 3-1 to Chelsea. United 14 pints of Arsenal. It would be amazing if they can get a champions league place.

    Adebeyor is a lazy player. He plays when he wants to play. Just give it time and he will go back to being lazy.

    And in La Liga there is only 1 point difference between the top three teams. That league really has become interesting know. Hopefully it can stay that way.

    Bayern demolish Frankfurt 5-0

    Champions League Round of 16 can't come any sooner.

    Yup so Arsenal can crush them in the first leg and then proceed to knock them out the Champions League............nope, can't say it with a straight face

    Speaking of Arsenal...

    Liverpool 5 - 1 Arsenal. Arsenal were shredded in the first 20 minutes, they were all over the place. I have to say that Liverpool were very good, and of course SAS (and Sterling too) were quite good. Skrtel and Sterling were both on a hat trick, which was quite surprising.

    As much as I dislike them both, I have to admit, they have been quite good this season.

    And this is why you strengthen your squad in January so you don't have to rely on the same faces all the time because how demoralising must it be that what is pretty much your best eleven gets slaughtered like that and most likely will continue to do so next few weeks

    Me thinks Juventus is rigging again. Poor Trabzonspor got their 1-1 stolen away; and don't tell me that it could happen to anyone because it seems to always be in the favour of the same teams of the same countries.

    Another ex portuguese icon passed away. Mario Coluna.

    This is soooooooooo deaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad :(

    Barca lost, looking more like a Madrid VS Madrid title fight.
    City got beaten by Wigan, what do you say.

    As much as I dislike Man City, I would like them to beat Barca.
    Arsenal to beat Bayern, they've been so boring since pep took over, and if Arsenal win a trophy they might shut up about 9 years (as if that's a long time to wait, 41 years here, and that's not even bad)
    Chelski to win too, because all English teams to be eliminated would be bat for the EPL
    And Man Utd to lose, always Man Utd to lose :p
    Like to see Atletico to do well since they have the almighty red and white colour scheme (Sunderland supporter here)
    Not a fan of PSG so the sooner they're gone the better
    Leverkusen to do a miracle and turn around the deficit ;)

    Really hope City wins too (I don't support any english team, I just like seeing them play cuz they all play well)
    Man U losing would be jokes, chelsea should win (mourinho fan here haha)

    Who do you follow?, If you're looking for an English team to support then I'd recommend the almighty SAFC, Not the richest club in the world, but tons of history (and if you're American, we have Altidore)

    TheSirPeras The end of an era

    I support Benfica (portuguese team, and I'm also Portuguese haha), but I enjoy watching other great teams play, like Chelsea, Liverpool and City (I watch the bpl a lot too, apart from the portuguese league). Hoping we'll beat spurs for europa league, though nobody really cares about that competition haha

    Never really followed the Purtuguese league I'm sorry to admit, I watch some German football, and a little Spanish (though only the big games, that league is way to slow), and I don't think we get it on any channels here.

    And I'm afraid I have to support Spurs for the Europa League, they're the only English team standing any chance of doing well in Europe (and if they win the competition then there's less chance of Man Utd qualifying for a European competition, and their failure brings me joy :p)

    Hoping Arsenal pulls off a miracle and beats Bayern Munich in the Champs League Round of 16.

    Went to Barnsley versus Nottingham Forest last Saturday, taking my Football League ground total up to 33/92. Definitely the best atmosphere so far this season too. Hopefully by the end of two seasons' time I'll be halfway there!

    Might as well get some European predictions in, because why not:

    Atletico Madrid 1-1 Milan
    Bayern Munich 1-0 Arsenal
    Barcelona 0-1 Manchester City
    Paris Saint-Germain 2-1 Bayer Leverkusen

    AZ 0-0 Anzhi Makhachkala (definitely did not spell that name on memory)
    Ludogorets Razgrad 0-1 Valencia
    Porto 2-2 Napoli
    Lyon 1-1 Viktoria Plzen
    Sevilla 3-1 Real Betis
    Tottenham Hotspur 1-1 Benfica
    Basel 1-0 Red Bull Salzburg
    Juventus 4-2 Fiorentina
