Random Champions League Thoughts
A great night for us on Wednesday if a little draining on we fans nerves, but I'm told by neutrals who watched it that it was a cracking match.
Respect to Shakhtar, they are a class act and could go all the way, if given the touch of fortune all cup winners need. I'm particularly impressed by Fernandinho, could it be he'd look good in blue?
The highlights from Celtic were well worth catching, any side who beat Barca / UEFA are my heroes, even though I've always had a soft spot for the blue half of Glasgow.
Best news of the round though, at long last its official, Johnny Evans does commit fouls, even in his own penalty area! Just a shame it took a foreign referee, Brych by name, to award one against him.
And you know what? I think the ref was wrong but what the hell, it's just a shame it had no bearing on the result unlike his great escape v Torres. Think Liverpoo have an issue with him too)
Good to see Kalou score a goal for his new club but what about Claudio Pizarro? A hat-trick in rapid time for the man who rarely looked like scoring for us, the 2nd goal being especially well taken.
And Robben, FIT and firing, a class act when on the pitch, but........., well we all know the score there.
I'll just finish on Oscar, having him is a bit like looking forward to Xmas lunch / birthday treats / a great night out; I'm almost drooling at the anticipation of what's to come from this lad in the next few years, not to mention Hazard & Mata.
