  1. Sincerely hope BeIn uses the home feed for audio… Yesterday’s Notts Forrest v Liverpool game had two Hispanic guys for English commentary… In two minutes I found the game online with a sky sports feed and a desperate international feed. Stupid decisions from BeIn when you have access to the feed from the UK and you use your In house commentary team who know absolutely zero about the players or the tournament they are commentating about.


    1. It was a sweet strike by commons. With shakhter playing with 5 across the back celtic need to shoot on sight of goal. It’s going to be very hard to break them down otherwise.

  2. Celtic vs Shakhter game is wide open right now. The match is tied 2-2 on aggregate. If you’re near a TV or computer, turn it on!

    1. Absolutely unbelievable scenes at Celtic Park. I am very proud of The Bhoys and the way the fought back. I would like to think that I speak for many on here when I say that this is why so many of us love this game.

  3. So what does FOX do with Celtic Park rocking like a madhouse at the end of the match? Yup, immediate cut to ads. Couldn’t wait even 30 seconds. What a bunch of dweebs.

  4. Not sure who the analyst is on ESPN with Adrian Healey, but he is doing an OUTSTANDING job.

    As i was expecting Taylor Twellman to ruin the game for me, this is a VERY pleasant surprise.

  5. Defender man-marks Messi almost out of the game.
    Another Barcelona player gets that defender sent off with a theatrical dive.

    Hm doesnt that sound familiar . . .
