Champions League Results: The Kids Are Alright

If we find out who told Chicharito vampire stories just before he took to the pitch against Cluj last night, facial bites will be the least of their problems.

Luckily, we’ve found evidence that other players in the Champions League take their childcare responsibilities a little more seriously…

Movement & dance during gameplay are techniques that should be encouraged as they will help your baby feel secure and confident.

Reward your baby with praise for good behaviour.


Juventus 1-1 Shakhtar Donetsk

But don’t overdo it. Your little one will not develop into a well rounded individual if he does not experience failure at first hand.

Be careful not to intimidate the little ones with your superior stature. However, apply a measured approach. If you overdo it, they may start to believe that the size differential is not a factor and kick your arse.


Spartak Moscow 2-3 Celtic


You may not necessarily approve of your offspring’s sartorial decisions, but everyone is different. Overcome your prejudices, love them anyway and you will be rewarded.

Always be aware though, that bad things can and do happen. When they do, try to remain calm throughout and apply as many distraction techniques as possible to reduce their focus on the pain.

    Did not even know you could just dislocate an elbow like that. *Shudders* Hope Carles recovers well and quickly.

    I totally volunteer to stay the night with Chicharito!!!! He's so damn cute!!

  3. Agnes Wonka says:

    Puyol's injury was horrific! oh my God, I was so shocked when I saw it O.O

    Is it too stupid to ask how's Nicklas Bendtner doing in Juventus? I haven't heard anything about him :S

  4. gin_in_teacups says:

    Terrible terrible shame about Puyol. I wish him a fast recovery.

  5. rubii says:

    Bayren and Juventus?? What's happening with those teams?
    Valencia and Chelsea seems to be doing a good job..
    Anyways I watched Benfica Vs Barca..Barca players were just great (Starting to feel fear since the Classico is coming)
    I feel so bad for captain Puyol!I almost fainted when I saw what happened to him and the pain he was in…ughh ! how painful :( be strong Puyol <3!

    Well, I'm already having kittens about Montpellier's trip to Schalke, but sweet to see from the official trip photos that somebody has been feeding them all lollipops to keep them focussed… http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=1015109513…

    I started to cry when I saw Puyi lying there, totally helpless, with his arm in that horrible angle. Yes I know, I'm a softie. But he's our Capi! The one with the biggest heart! It's not f*cking fair! After that I just felt numb, I didn't care what happened in the game. And no matter how angry I've been with Alexis, I just wanted to hug him when he just sat there looking devastated. I thought he was going to be sick. The Benfica crowd was fantastic though, they cheered and clapped for Puyi when he was carried off. I guess everybody loves a fighter.

    And now we don't have our most important kicker of Madrid butt on Sunday. And no Piqué. This is so bad.

      We have Messi, Cesc, Inestesta, AND Villa – we will ROCK THE NOU CAMP

      • Kristina says:

        Yes, you're right. I't's not that bad is it? And Messi really likes to score on Casillas ;) .

        • Gladys says:

          It might also be time to give Bartra and Montoya a little love there in defense. Dani's been spaced-out lately and I think Masch and Song together are not effective enough. I'm thinking, no matter what, it's going to be a high-scoring game for both sides. Just hope we come out on top. So excited for Sunday!!!

          • Kristina says:

            I was thinking the same. I'm hoping that Bartra finally will get some time. But I wonder, it's such an important game. And poor Song! Coming to Barca and being forced to fill up for both Piqué and Puyol, together with Masch. I guess it wasn't what he was thinking :) . This injuries are so frustrating! Thiago… I was so happy that he was back and then boom, he's gone again. It's fantastic that the team is winning the way they do, though.

        • Lily says:

          Last time Messi scored on Casillas was 3 or 4 Classicos ago…
          Approx 4 CR7 goals on Valdes ago…

          • Kristina says:

            I'm just saying that he likes it ;) . But he doesn't have to be the one who scores. He's quite a playmaker, isn't he? A real team player. When he doesn't score he sees to it that others do. Like two days ago. And that's fine by me.

      • Gladys says:

        With MVP upfront, and Xaviestio right behind, bound to be some goals!!! Just hope the defense can keep it together. CR7 seems to be en fuego lately.

    Oscar is just too cute! :)

  9. Jayy says:

    Mario Gomez needs to come back ASAP! :(

  10. tammyv says:

    That Puyol injury was horrific to watch.. I am glad it is only a dislocated elbow has opposed to all the ligaments being shredded along with dislocation and broken bones. Get well soon dolly..

    Saw that injury, hope is not as bad as it looked. Wishing him all the best.

    Saw that injury, hope is not as serious as it looked. Wishing him all the best.

    Oh dear, Bayern are clearly missing their Super Mario…

    I felt sorry for Nordsjaelland. With only a teeny tiny percentage of the funds available at Chelsea's disposal they were clearly outplayed. Although it should be said that they put up one hell of a fight and looked quite dangerous at times.
