My friend Balls of Steel and Fury, Esq. notoriously scoffs at English teams making the Champions League knockout stages. I can do without English teams most of the time, which does not apply to top English Premier League teams. The distinction is clear, because the great EPL teams are as
For Catholics, today is Good Saturday. To get the religious stuff out of the way: “The Young Pope" was hokey, but interesting. And what an intro!
All times Central. Yeah.
Listen, I got a two-day vacation going, so please accept my start-time guesses.

We got a true doubleheader today, with an early kickoff in Turkey. That game promises flares in the stands; the one in Catalonia, fireworks on the field.
Beşiktaş (Turkey) vs. Bayern Munich (Germany) – 12:00 Central (0-5 aggregate)
Beşiktaş went undefeated in the Champions League group stage, albeit against Porto
This EPL season has been underwhelming. Manchester City has been a buzzsaw, practically tying up the title three months in advance. Man City does not play today.
In La Liga, Barcelona had been tearing it up, but it’s now a two team race. Atlético Madrid is only five points back with

It’s Saturday morning and there’s fútbol! Huh. Looks like a slate for the hardcore, in La Liga and the EPL. And, c’mon: it’s mid January. Even if Liverpool were playing Man City for the top of the table, with the losers getting full body waxes after the game… I’d still
Good morning early risers let's hope today we are rewarded with some good futbol! It is I, one of the three gentlemen filling in for Hippo as he takes his hiatus from teh futbol. We all four watch the game a bit differently and focus on different countries for the

Well, lets get this outta the way. DIDJA SEE WHAT HAPPENED WITH PSG AND BARCA???? It was glorious. After going down 4- 0 in the first leg in Paris it seemed a near impossible task that they could beat a formidable PSG by enough to go through. Or was it?
Well that was sure something last week. The Catalans got thumped in Paris like the Kardashian broad and there is no coming back from that. Benfica held at home which will make for an interesting 2nd leg in Deutschland. The Gunners got smoked at the Allianz Arena and I can’t
