    Its not too bad, what with all the less-than-legal online streams around now a days and a pub that shows footie at the end of the road Does mean you have to plan all your footie viewing in advance though. No more flicking through the channels and finding an interesting looking La Liga game to watch when there's nothing on terrestrial.

    Anyway, tonight's (it's half past midnight over here, so that's why ''tonight'') an important game for PSV. They're up against ADO Den Haag, one of the lesser teams in the Dutch league. Though normally i would assume this is an easy victory, i can't tell for sure after what happened two weeks ago against PEC. Who, as a matter of fact, are our opponents for the semi-finals in february. Hopefully PSV wins both matches, then they're in the title match for the cup and they will have strengthened their position as the leading team in the competition.

    Premier League looking good so far, QPR drew 0-0 earlier but Villa leading Everton 2-1, which is a surprise but I doubt that lead will last long. Come on Arsenal! Let's bury Stoke. COYG!!!

    Newcastle 3 - 2 Chelsea

    ...can't believe thats just happened. Poor first half from us, (again), but after coming out and getting in front after half time I really thought we were on course to win this one. Playing some very good stuff but after Newcastle's equaliser it just fell away again. Not sure how much of it is Rafa and how much the players, but there seems to be so little belief at the moment. Know its a bit cliched but look at Sissoko's performance compared to that of Mata, Oscar and Bertrand and you'll see what I mean. Mata and Oscar, (and Hazard) may be ridiculously talented players, but they're lack of willingness to press the ball and get back and defend is really costing us. Can't believe I'm saying this, but could really do with Mikel getting back from the African Nations soon and Luiz being fit again. Need a bit of solidity in our midfield.

    Obviously must say well done to Arsenal, we can't camp so many men behind the ball and hold out of 90 minutes, it's too difficult. Especially against skillful, passing teams. Still, not worried and can't complain, 10 points for 40 and virtual safety, didn't lose any players. Always happy with Tony. (Except sending Delap out on loan...)

    Why didn't they have Steven Pienaar? Not that he's great at taking penalties, I've never seen him, but I wanted them to win for no particular reason...

    (Also we signed Jack Butland. Who wants Begovic?)

    Is Granada the first ever team to win a game without having a shot on target?
    As to what once, it now is. For this my retirement tour, let us commence, forevermore, forevermore.

    Psv won 7-0 from Ado last night, PSV scored the most goals (73) of any european competition, with Barcelona second at 71 goals.

    To compare in the Eredivisie Ajax scored the second most goals but they are only at 47.

    ^ Need to start watching Eredivisie a bit now!

    Cracking game between Man City and Liverpool, great goals scored by Gerrard and Aguero. It's a shame Spurs won though, (curse Bale..)

    Burkina Faso are in the Semis and an Elephant got poached thus causing the eagle to fly away.

    I was there. Saw six out of seven goals happening right in front me during the second half. What a great match, now we have to play against Vitesse next week. They were doing well before the winterbreak, but have been out of shape lately. Lucky for them and unlucky for PSV fans, Wilfried Bony returns from the Africa cup. He really gives his team a boost.

    Mexico and Denmark tied, I wasn't able to watch this match so I'm disappointed.

    You really should. The skill level isn't as high as in England or Spain, but we have very exciting matches.

    Yeah I really should, footytube is my friend for that since the Eredisivie I think is only shown here in the UK on ESPN (Which I don't have anyway..). Check out Ajax and PSV and such.

    Yeah 380 games over 3-4 years being investigated into, including games in England which is a little surprising. I wonder how many Juventus games are found of match fixing? They've had the most coverage for scandals since being stripped of titles and relegated.

    Mexico vs Jamaica! I forgot who the US is playing, oh wait Honduras.

    The US better keep their guard up, they are playing in Honduras and they will not be easy.

    Wasn't Fenerbache in Turkey involved in a huge scandal as well?

    I would like to add to that, that quite a few stars have played in the Eredivisie in the past.
