Subject: RE: BS: Football (not the U.S. kind)
Tuff titty, Chelski! They were mugged by a canny Juve team (I watched the match). Juventus always seemed to have nine or ten men behind the ball, shades of Mourinho when he was at the helm at Chelsea. I still expect Chelsea to get through from the group they're in. They should smash Juve at the Bridge (which I lived literally next door to for two years in the early 70s, where I first met the eventually-to-be Mrs Steve in 1974). I see that Man U scraped a victory. Actually, I'm a massive admirer of Cristiano, and I treasure a photo of Mrs Steve standing next to his statue in Funchal, Madeira, the place of his upbringing. Just down from that statue is a coffee bar that sells the best bloody pastel de nata on the planet. Yes!!
