British teams in Europe this week: what the bloggers say


15th, September 2006

‘It is always fun to watch a game in which Celtic keeper Artur Boruc
plays. The Polish international isn’t one to hide his emotions and
watching him piss and moan on the pitch is as good of a reason as any
to watch Celtic matches.’ [Man Utd v Celtic, The Offside]
‘Again Emmanuel Eboue’s final ball was atrocious. Does he see Arsenal
shirts in the stand behind the goal and pass it to them? Justin Hoyte
also remains unconvincing at left back and I think Wenger made the
wrong substitution taking van Persie off and leaving Adebayor on.’
[Hamburg v Arsenal, Arseblog]
‘Do Blackburn really need the trip to the Wals Siezenheim Stadium in
Austria this week to play on an artificial pitch? Does Martin Jol
really savour the journey to the Czech Republic? Will Glenn Roeder be
impressed by the three-time Estonian champions FC Levadia Tallinn? Or
can anyone write about West Ham anymore, without mentioning Carlos
Tevez at least once?’ [The Uefa Cup, Caught Offside]
‘Despite the club’s best efforts the fans were livelier last night, with
officially 6,000 Celtic fans – it sounded like more – making their way
down from Scotland, most inebriated beyond comprehension but all
singing their hearts out for the team. The question is when the smaller
teams come to town will United fans respond or will we be too engrossed
in our Verve Cliquot and Truffle Salads to care?’
[Man Utd v Celtic, United Rant]
