    "Grown men were crying - the world reacts to Barca's crazy win"

    That's what the BBC website led with.

    In truth tho, 'the world' doesn't really care any more than it did about Bayen Munich thrashing Arsenal 5-1. Twice.

    Football will eat itself. It's more and more of a stupid sideshow.

      I viewed the still image highlights on Sky News this morning.
      It was almost like watching the real thing

      It feels like, actually, no-one cares about or talks about the Champions League anymore. Partly since it moved to Sky, and completely since it moved to BT.

      I used to look forward to the big ties 10 years or so ago. I don't even know who's in it or what/when the fixtures are anymore. Not sure if it's just because me and my friends have been excluded from it by not having BT or if really no-one cares anymore.

      If PSG had sat any deeper they'd have been in row A.

      Sussex kids in Barca shirts already irk me, this will no doubt produce more of them.

      There were no grown men crying in the Spiros household. Just comments like 'mm, that looks a bit fishy' based entirely upon the brief snippets shown on the BBC news. I'm not saying it's fixed but wouldn't be surprised to see some betting scandal around this in a few weeks/months/years time.

      My first thoughts also, a result like that makes you wonder whether the whole thing was preordained to some extent.

      Do you think there was a 'leaving early' thread on the Barca forum?

      All I took from this match was that seemingly anything will get awarded a penalty these days.

      Glad it's not just me feeling a little cynical ...

      Well, if you're the right club yes.
