      He looks like David Villa again! Yay!

        On behalf of beard sporters everywhere I am aghast at your glee!

    So many empty seats. Dang, I know Messi/ Xaviniesta aren’t playing but still…

      We were going to go because it was Eur9 up in the high, cheap seats, but it’s too damn cold!

      Yes, we’re wusses. We spent the money on seeing Skyfall instead. 🙂

        Can’t be wusses for Osasuna game! Is one allowed in the CN with thermoses? Thinking coffee, a little Frangelico…

          Nope. Nothing over 250mls allowed inside. I’ll leave you to do the conversion!

        How was Skyfall? A’s such a Bond geek.

      Little more laconic than my post, but yeah,

    Well that’s…surprising

    Well JDS didn’t do himself any favors there, dangit!

    In theory, this lineup + our lead should do it. In practice, this is a 3rd div. team playing in the venue of their dreams. Something unthinkable could happen. Puyi better whip those lads in shape.

    Still 0-0 Wigan v City at HT. Go little Wigan!

    I am thinking Cesc for Dos Santos will happen in the 2nd Half!

      I’d like P for Thiago, too. No need for him to play too much just coming off of such a long injury.

      Surely you weren’t expecting any less?

        TBH, i was expecting a blitz, well at leat no Adriano scored

        • K_legit in Oz
          November 28, 2012

          Really? ‘Cause I sure wasn’t!

    • mom4
      November 28, 2012

      Why? I’m rather enjoying it. It’s still good even w/out the big names.

    no sense of urgency whatsoever and not gelling yet

  9. K_legit in Oz
    November 28, 2012

    whew normal service is resumed! 1-1 Adriano

  10. mom4
    November 28, 2012

    He really deserved that after the strike the goalie stopped!

    Alba and Adriano, now that’s a good fight for LB. Both scoring well.

  12. K_legit in Oz
    November 28, 2012

    I’d say the only reasonable difference between Alba and Adriano is that Alba wouldn’t seem out of place in a Alvin and the Chipmunks picture!

    tellos touch let him down there a bit, no?

      hmmmm….does that mean he’s leaving soon?

      • mom4
        November 28, 2012

        Sadly, that was my first thought. But then again, I’m emo-cule 😀

    Gorgeous freekick by Villa!

  15. mom4
    November 28, 2012

    So can Villa take a few FKs from now on?

  16. K_legit in Oz
    November 28, 2012

    How was that offside? Unless it took a touch of their player at the front post tangling with Song!

    Aand Villa scores again! JDS is running the show in the 2nd half!

    • nzm
      November 28, 2012

      With the freekick, Villa scored his 300th professional Liga goal.

      • lea_terzi
        November 28, 2012

        But this is Copa, no? Villa has now scored 301 pro goals, including the national team. Still, impressive record. He’s been so good for so long 🙂

  18. mom4

    This is good for Villa! Now lets get P a few to boost his confidence.

  19. ooga aga
    November 28, 2012

    if Deulofeu’s skill level can come to match his confidence, we’ll be in good shape.

    put another way: if he can actually be as good as he thinks he is, we’ll be in good shape. otherwise it’s just sort of funny.

      the kid is special though. He is brave enough to take on defenders nearly every time he gets the ball. As soon as he learns when to pass and when to take on his man, he’ll be almost unplayable

      • November 28, 2012

        He started like crap but he had some nice moves later on. Almost scored, too. Needs to learn when to pass, indeed. Or just needs to learn to pass more, hehe.

    Did Thiago play LW like he did in the CWC last year?

    Would anyone like to do a rating for the player’s performances?
    Im interested to know how the young’uns and fringe players did.

  21. November 29, 2012

    I don’t do ratings, y’all can argue with Kxevin over those, hehehe… Put up some thoughts in a new post, though.
