    &$*&$! *^%$"!% *&&%$!&%!!

    ... just watched Glasgow Celtic lose the UEFA cup.

    Stupid game, never gonna watch another.

    Sitting here with my autograph sheet of the '67 "Lisbon Lions" before me I bemoan the state of football (soccer) today.

    Between Celtic's "physical" play and Porto's amateur dramatics, the game was a travesty. I suppose we should celebrate how class players like Larson manage to shine in a team of thugs like Lennon but on balance, I've had enough.

    Nights like tonight, on top of the sectarian garbage that blights Old Firm football, make me an ex-football fan after 26 years of varying degrees of hoop-dom.

    I was never much of a football fan.
    I got kind of interested last year when I thought England was in with the smallest chance of winning, (as opposed to not having a snowball's chance in hell like it was for the last 35 years) but it didn't last long.
    Professional sport these days seems to be about $$$$$$$$$$,
    not sport.
    But, since you are mourning the demise of a once great sport, you have my condolences

    I hope the Celtic fans beat the.... No, not really. The ref was crap. Porto players (and the goalie in extra time - should have had red acards for their dives). Even the Spanish commentators here thought Porto were way over the top. That says something as they nearly always commentate on a different game I am watching (usually the British team is playing crap no matter how they play, and the spanish team is playing great no matter how crap they are playing). Yes I know Porto are Portuguese and not Spanish, but the Spanish were probaby all supporting their neighbours.

    Crazy, if it makes you feel any better, Portugal is a dump. Went to Lisbon on my Honeymoon a couple fo years back. Disgusting place in my opinion. More rubbish on the streets than in the bins.
