Wednesday football open thread

David Ramos

These games could get ugly fast. Come talk about them with CFC anyway.

Sup, ladies and gentlemen. There's more Champions League to be watched today, then Tottenham Hotspur play tomorrow. AC Milan probably won't provide any more of a challenge to Barcelona than Arsenal did to Bayern Munich did yesterday, but we can pretend. Schalke's awful Bundesliga form didn't stop them from getting to a semifinal two years ago, but they're also not very good and will probably lose in Turkey.

I'm really, really, really hoping for two good games, but I don't think we'll get them. Schedule of football things is below. This is your open thread, so chat away.
