    Football Champions League & Europa matches

    We've got some good games this week.

    Tuesday:
    Montpellier v Arsenal
    Real Madrid v Man City <---- a bit of a biggun!

    Weds:
    Chelsea v Juventus
    Celtic 164217 - Champions League & Europa matches8746 - Champions League & Europa matches v Benfica
    Man Utd v Galatasaray

    Thurs:
    Young Boys v Liverpool
    Maritimo v Newcastle
    Spurs v Lazio

    It will for me be interesting to see how Chelski do vs Juve with Roberto Di Matteo in charge, and I like to see Arsenal play against French opposition (because of the Wenger connection).

    Man Yoo ought to win at home.

    Obviously I'll be hoping (massively) that Benfica lose.

    The 'biggest' match is probably Real v Citeh, which is live on ITV.

    Looks great. Being a Liverpool fan is hard work these days. How the fuck they didn't win yesterday is a fucking mystery.

    BBC Re: Champions League & Europa matches

    Previews for Citeh and the Arse from the BBC:

     62928367 62925810 - Champions League & Europa matches

    Arsene Wenger says he is unsure how big a role Olivier Giroud will play against former club Montpellier in Arsenal's first Champions League group match.

    The France striker was relegated to the bench for the 6-1 win over Southampton and again failed to break his scoring duck in the 16 minutes he played.

    "What I will do on Tuesday, I honestly don't know," said the Gunners manager.

    Giroud, 25, said last week: "I am an Arsenal player and I want to score and to win this game for Arsenal."

    The forward, who was in France's Euro 2012 squad, joined Arsenal this summer, having finished last season with 25 goals for the Ligue 1 winners.

    Giroud came on late in the second half against Southampton along with Theo Walcott, but unlike the England international failed to get on the scoresheet.

    "I felt that he is under much pressure at the moment and sometimes to get a little breather is good," said Wenger of Giroud, who had started the previous league match against Liverpool.

    Meanwhile, the France player said he hoped for a positive welcome from the Montpellier supporters when Arsenal visit the Stade de la Mosson.

    "I hope to receive a good reception from the Montpellier fans, because I finished the top goal scorer there last season and worked hard for the title," the 12m signing also told Arsenal Player.

    "I think the reaction will be good, but there may be some people who will boo maybe. It is always like this."

     62926799 mourinhomancini get 624 - Champions League & Europa matches

    Roberto Mancini has done his best to play it all down. "This game is not Mourinho-Mancini or Mancini-Mourinho. This game is Real Madrid-Manchester City," was his response to a recent question.

    And yet in a Champions League tie filled with sub-plots and side stories, there is a fascination in seeing Europe's two most highly paid managers pit their wits against each other at the Bernabeu.

    They have met as managers only once before when Mancini's Lazio played Porto nine years ago in the Uefa Cup. Jose Mourinho came out on top on that occasion - despite a touchline ban for the second leg - to lead his team to his first European trophy.

    They have not met since that match in 2003 and yet there is a sense that a rivalry and tension has developed even without direct confrontations. Despite that, their respect for each other is without question.

    "Jose is one of the best in the world," Manchester City boss Mancini said of his Real Madrid rival.

    "But people should forget the managers. It's the players who will decide the game. What happens outside the pitch is not important."

    The parallels between both men are clear to see, right down to their tailored coats and penchant for distinctive scarves. Both have turned ambitious and extremely wealthy English football clubs into title winners and both led Inter to the coveted Serie A scudetto.

    And yet when you look more closely, there are also notable differences. Lots of them.

    As a player, Mourinho was a relative pauper, lacking the ability to follow in his father's footsteps and turn professional. Mancini was the prince, an outlandish talent, a cavalier and a character during a glittering career with Sampdoria, Lazio and Italy that led his adoring fans and compatriots to claim he was "baciato dalla grazia" or "kissed by good fortune".

    It is Mourinho, however, who has had the upper hand in the managerial stakes, having won two Champions Leagues - with Porto in 2004 and Inter in 2010 - and league titles in Portugal, England, Italy and Spain, all carried off with an aura reminiscent of the greats of the past.

    But if Mourinho and Real represent the pinnacle of the game, established football royalty, Mancini and City are the upstarts, the nouveau riche who believe they can overthrow the established order.

    "We don't have the history of Real Madrid," Mancini added. "But Manchester City have won trophies in the past and the important thing is that I think we will win trophies now. Wait for the next 10 or 20 years."

    Football Arsenal v Olympiakos 03/10/12 19:45

    I've got a ticket for Arsenal v Olympiakos (Olympiacos?) on Weds 3rd Oct 19:45.

    I will be keeping an eye on my mum, who is a rabid (?) Gooner. We have seats together at The Emirates.

    It will be strange to not wear a Celtic or Cambridge United scarf at a football match.

    I hope that The Arsenal win by a mile, if only to keep my mum happy >>
