    Watching the Champions League on the telly is probably the closest any of us will get to seeing top class football this year.Some interesting fixtures came out in yesterdays draw: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/45359704

    The Europa Cup draw will be held today but Burnley didn't make it to the group stage. They battered Olympiakos at Turf Moor last night but missed golden opportunities to score with Welsh international Sam Vokes the main culprit. Olympiakos delivered the killer blow late on.

    Funny isn't it, I couldn't give a fig about the champions league or the Europa league, since it moved to BT and cant watch it, just another tournament whose results I will see on the sports news, but really couldn't care who wins it.

    Keep it as it is. It adds a bit of spice and does encourage the away team to play.

    The transfer window ending at the same time in all major leagues is a no brainer, why do these things take so long in football to happen :emoticon-0112-wonde

    I think that ball was out for the 3rd goal though.

    Madrid back in it now ?

    Madrid are a sinking ship at this point. I hope Bale comes home at the end of the season.
