Linfield v Celtic could be interesting.

Apparently the clubs have already agreed they won't play on that date if Linfield get through.

Looking at the clubs listed above in the CL draw I have no doubt Bacuna could play in that League!

Dynamo Traktor

You laugh, but that's pretty much the literal translation of BATE Borisov, who are in the group stages every other year and normally do something odd like beat Bayern, or draw 3-3 with Barcelona.

I thought the season had finished but it appears there is an international tournament on in Russia called the confederations cup. Flicking through the TV yesterday I seen an unrecognizable German side versus an unrecognizable Australian side not that one ever really is recognizable but I digress.  What alarmed me about the coverage was the half time punditry, not what they were saying but the backdrop used by ITV, seriously, WTF?

FH Hafnarfjördur.
Possibly the most unpronounceable team we have ever played.

Seeing the scoreline we clearly told them to 'F Off'. Although I must admit I have no recollection whatsoever of that game.

Watching and listening to the Confederations Cup various commentators and pundits seem to disagree on whether to to call Chile 'chilly' or 'Chill Lay'. I always though it was the former as opposed to the latter. Ooh, we could have a poll.

I remember there was a big fuss over whether we would pick Barry, as doing so would render him ineligible to play for Liverpool in Europe. We picked him, he scored, he stayed.

Watching the highlights, typically brilliant goal by Young which I had forgotten all about.

It's blatantly "Chilly", like the Jimi Hendrix song "Voodoo Chilly".
