Good point, Bucky. Don't spend it all in one place though. :D

Celtic definitely have some weaknesses but there are some real positives today. Goalkeeping is shite. Left fullback is shite. One of the center backs is shite. Scott Brown is shite. Shaun Maloney is shite. On the plus side...

Juarez is going to be good, Cha Du Ri is going to be good, Hooper is going to be good, Ledley signs of something......

So on a plus side, I won money on the game betting Celtic and playing over 2.5 goals. :D

Rangers will be embarrassed in Europe again and Celtic might slip into the Europa League. Rangers will not even get to that stage once their knocked out. Of course it depends on who we draw in the Europa League playoff......hopefully a 'weaker' team. :D

Damn this gets hard to follow...

Lifted from another website:

I can confirm that TSN/TSN2 will air Tuesday Champions League games along with Setanta all season. Sportsnet and Setanta will air Wednesday matches. The only thing that isn't clear is whether it will go until the quarter finals or semi finals and whether games can air on TSN, or only TSN2. So a quick rundown

Tuesday: TSN/TSN2 (1st and maybe 3rd pick) & Setanta (2nd pick)
Wednesday: Sportsnet (1st and maybe 3rd pick) & Setanta (2nd pick)

Sportsnet One may be involved as well, but I don't know what games they will get yet.
So TSN is back into the mix :rolleyes:

Couple of questions for anyone who can answer. I'm just watching spurs vs bsc young boys. The games being played on turf and if the young boys win and make it too the group stage will they be forced to play on grass? If so that will be unfair on spurs IMO. Also tottenham have already used 3 subs yet the commentators are talking about spurs should bring on crouch? Is there a different amount of subs being used this year or just a mistake by the commentator? Nice goal by pavelychenko btw while I was typing this lol

If the turf has been approved by UEFA, which it has, then they play on it.

That second goal should be good for Tottenham.....they will win the return leg comfortably....3 - 1. :D

Anybody else notice the extra officials standing right by the goal? I guess to see if balls cross the goal line.

Are they just being used in Champions League games?
