      Mo was unplayable as well.

        Antoinne Greizmann blew into Camp Nou vs. Betis and had a great brace, as well as an assist, while Messi and Suarez watched from the stands. (5-2). I guess Barca is in the lead in the arms race in La Liga, lol.

          How did Fakir look for Betis? Feel real bad for that guy.

            He scored the first one, where it looked like Barca was just not in sync, but it was a good effort by Fekir.. After that, it was pretty much all Barca, except for another fade out in garbage time.

              He was all but signed for Liverpool, even to the point the interview and announcement pictures were done, but the medical revealed a bad knee and all big clubs have stayed away since. Hope he has a good career and at the least continues to play for France. Come to think of it, he does have a world cup medal that a ton of fantastic players will never sniff, so not all bad.

                Champions League draw is complete and the winner for the 10th consecutive year is, of course the cheats: Man Citeh. Not sure who gets the winning draw next year if the cheats actually do get punished with a years banishment from UEFA competitions, but likelihood is that they'll just pay off UEFA before they get rightfully banned. Not that the easy draw helps them much, they just continue to fall to the first good team they face in the knockouts year after year.

                GROUP A: PSG, Real Madrid, Club Brugge, Galatasaray
                GROUP B: Bayern Munich, Tottenham, Olympiakos, Red Star Belgrade
                GROUP C: Man City, Shakhtar Donetsk, Dinamo Zagreb, Atalanta
                GROUP D: Juventus, Atletico Madrid, Bayer Leverkusen, Lokomotiv Moscow
                GROUP E: Champions of Europe (6X), Napoli, FC Salzburg, Genk
                GROUP F: Barcelona, Borussia Dortmund, Inter Milan, Slavia Prague
                GROUP G: Zenit St Petersburg, Benfica, Lyon, RB Leipzig
                GROUP H: Chelsea, Ajax, Valencia, Lille

                Group F looks to be the only mini 'Group of Death' where one of Barca, Dortmund or Inter will be sent to Europa. Inter is good and has Conte now.
                Groups C and G are the least interesting, by far.
                Ajax got a pretty good draw, can continue their exploits with some luck. Juve-Atletico and PSG-Real Madrid will be fun games, as will Napoli-Liverpool again. Alisson, the 2018/19 UEFA Keeper award winner, made the save of the tournament in extra time vs. Napoli that eliminated the Italians and propelled the beautiful Reds to Number 6. LETS GO!

                  Matchweek 3 was fantastic, with half of the big 6 losing games. Champions of Europe completely dominated Arsenal with fantastic performance from Mo Salah and Bobby Firmino en route to 3 nil lead. A consolation goal by the Gunners really late flattered the visitors. Chelsea squeaked out a huge win for Lampard's first victory and Norwhich, aside from the 4-1 drubbing vs. the Champions of Europe continues to impress while Teemu Pukki the now Finland Legend got a goal and an assist. PUKKI! To bad he's 29 and not 21, Norwhich would have a valuable asset. The gift that is Ole Gunnar Solskjær continues to give and the bottom half of the table is eternally grateful. Crystal Palace was able to get their first win against United since 1991. Apparently, despite spending over 70MM on one player which I was told would make Spurs bulletproof, the Spurs aren't bulletproof. They lost. At home. To Steve Bruce's Newcastle. Lol. Two shots on frame, Brucie may have come up with a blueprint. Or maybe it was those 20 losses in all comps during the 2018/2019 season that provided the blueprint? For such a talented squad and great manager, they lose way to much.

                  Matchweek 4 kicks off bright and early on the west coast Saturday, 4:30AM:

                  Burnley v. The Champions of Europe - Perfect start to the season is on the line at Turf Moor. Burnley is having one of those seasons, really difficult to break down and Ashley Barnes is killing it early in the season. Hopefully no complacency sets in for the Reds, Burnley is a team that gives the top teams trouble and this season doesn't have the Europa League distraction they did last season. Draw with Wolves at Wolverhampton last week should have been a win, Wolves got an extra time equalizer. Very impressive. Can't stand Burnley and Sean Dyche.
                  Southampton vs. Manchester United - The 4:30AM game. No idea what will happen here, United could smash them 4-0 like they did Chelsea, although the lack of goal threats makes me doubt that, or Southampton, with a much better manager, Ralph Hasenhüttl (dubbed the Klopp of the North) could pull off a shocker. Good luck Ralph!
                  Chelsea v. Sheffield United - Should be a fun game for neutrals. Sheffield United doesn't really sit back, even away. Chelsea in an open game at Stamford Bridge should get the 3 points.
                  Man City v. Brighton - Good luck Albion. You'll need it. Just don't ship more than 3 goals please.
                  Arsenal v. Spurs - The last game on Sunday before the international break, and its a great match up, the North London Derby. Arsenal saw their perfect start to the season come to a crashing halt, completely outclassed at Anfield while Spurs were beaten by Newcastle at home. A loss by Arsenal would make it two losses in a row and send them into mini-crises mode and a poor result by Spurs would see them at 4 points (loss) or 5 points (draw) after 4 matches, which would be full crises mode. Either way, will be fun!

                  LETS GO YOU REDS!

                    Right score, but v. Man City, not Liverpool. PUKKI!!!!! What a game, what a result! PUKKI!

                      I thought they would take a scalp or two from big 6 teams. Wasn't thinking City though. Billion dollar roster vs 10 mil(?) Roster. I think Norwich stays up. They are fun to watch
