When did you start following your team: March 2nd, 2003.
Why you picked your team: It was the 2003 League Cup Final. I didn't really like soccer, but I watched it with a United supporter who was utterly obnoxious. Had no idea about Liverpool's history at the time.
Just started a UEFA Champions League Thread in the NASCAR/SOCCER sub. I suggest we start threads for Premier League, La Liga, Seria A, Bundesliga, MLS, etc... I'm sure we'd have enough participation to move NASCAR out of there.
The 2013/14 UEFA Champions League has come to an end and Real Madrid has been crowned champions of Europe for a record 10th time. Now we move on to 2014/15.
The draws for qualifying rounds is June 23rd and qualifying play begins July 1st. Group stages will be drawn on August 28th and the first group stage games will be played on September 16th and 17th. The pots are as follows:
The 2015 UEFA Champions League Final will be played at the Olympiastadion in Berlin, Germany.
“They (the media) say a lot of things and sometimes you think too much about them and it hurts when you are giving your all for the club. Things come out like ‘he’s going to Tottenham,’ or ‘he’s staying.’ These are difficult times for a player. It’s difficult to detach yourself (from the speculation). I was calm as I knew I wanted to continue with Madrid.”
Love how the media takes a snippet, fugs up the translation, then blasts the interwebz with their exclusive content. I have to admit, the poster there is pretty funny (and if they had said Arsenal instead, I would have loved it just like you guys), but totally taken out of context and ran with by the unrepentant and unprofessional sports writers. Absolutely zero ramifications if they screw it up too, which is BS.
