what the hell is wrong with those germans... no one has balls on the team to take the freaking penalty?

For me Kroos should be taking Bayern's penalties.

Even Neuer would be a good option since no one seems to have any confidence at the spot.

Kroos and Tymo had a panic attack at the CL final and refused to take one, that's why Neur stepped up like a beast

Gomez, Bastian or Lahm are my picks.

Basically the second goal was the most badass goal of the season so far.

That's a great game right there, I really think Lazio has a good squad. Jasi do you think they can qualify for a CL spot this season in Serie A?

They surely had a great start to the season (better than expected: mostly because no one really knew the new coach Petkovic in this country ).

I am not sure they can keep it up for the whole season (they won 3 matches out of 3 up to now), but they will surely compete for a CL spot.
There's gonna be a crowd up there... While Juventus seems to be the clear cut favourite, any team among Napoli, Lazio, Inter could end up in the 2-3 spots, with Milan, Roma (and hopefully my Fiorentina) possible outsiders.

Mikel is not a true DM and never has been. He is not capable of covering the huge spaces. He covers in tight spaces, but Chelsea's midield isn't as packed as it used to be. I honesty think that he would do well playing next to Arteta, at Arsenal. But in a wide-open midfield like Chelsea's, he does not do so well.



Frank Lampard does nothing better than anybody. I love this man.



Oscar, after the first goal, was great. I love him. He didn't shut Pirlo down, whatever that meant, but he played a great game.



Juventus were playing the ball forward a lot and not letting it go thru Pirlo. Vidal and Marchisio are two of the best players in the world. Vidal limping thru a goal = :

Wouldnt be surprised if Nastasic takes over Lescott's starting position soon. I hope Richards gets back to the team quickly as well. Dzeko should start against Arsenal after his recent performances (before internationally, during internationals and after). I swear to god if Mancini starts Balotelli again I'm going to explode.

When Wilshere is healthy, I wanna see what Wenger does with Cazorla. Because Jack and Arteta is stupid excuse for a double pivot. Two CAM's playing as a double pivot, when neither is a great defender.
