Champions League Results: Wake Up Bombs
Oh gawd. He’s gone all Kate Winslet on us now. Let’s try to remember this when PSG’s expensively assembled machine runs into a fairly innocuous looking obstacle and sinks without trace. Image: Dean Mouhtaropoulos/Getty Images Europe.
We slept through last night’s Champion League matches thanks to an unfortunate mismanagement of happy hour drinks.
Did we miss anything?

As we know, it’s “in the script” for a struggling newbie to score upon his return to his old club. Olivier Giroud didn’t, but it wasn’t really his fault. We stole the script yesterday lunchtime and have been rewriting it to include new characters (us) and fewer clothes (his). We’ll get it back to him Thursday.

While Olympiacos’ Francois Modesto and Schalke’s Jermaine Jones battled for the ball, Kyriakos Papadopoulos, like most other people, was focussed on events at the Bernabeu.

Dieudonne Mbokani’s failure to co-operate meant that Philippe Mexes’ crack at the iconic Titanic pose ended up looking more than a misjudged effort at planking. Interestingly AC Milan’s failure to pick up points at home against a team currently 500/1 to win the tournament could be described in the same way.

We can’t help but sympathise with Joey Hart, who had a few words for his team-mates after Real Madrid turned a 2-1 deficit into a 3-2 victory in the last five minutes of the game. It’s safe to say that Roberto Mancini does not feel the same, but then presumably he’s not as mesmerised by the City ‘keeper’s thighs as we are.
Are we allowing lust to cloud our judgement, Kickettes? Or is Joey entitled to kick a bit of butt after keeping his side in the game until late on? Tell us, but bear in mind while we were sleepy drunk last night, we’re razor sharp this morning.
Any comments clad in couture from the Djibril Cisse School of Fashion will be sent back to the hellhole from whence they came. ‘M’kay?
