Champions League roundup

I wasn't a huge fan of the FOX broadcast yesterday. The whole thing (pregame, broadcast, highlights of other games, everything) seemed amateurish.

God save me, I longed for Tommy Smyth.

I know. Anyways, here are the scores:
  • Celtic 0-2 Lucky Arsenal
  • FC Copenhagen 1-0 Apoel Nicosia
  • Sheriff Tiraspol 0-2 Olympiakos
  • P. Timisoara 0-2 VfB Stuttgart
  • Sporting Lisbon 2-2 Fiorentina
Hopefully the boys step up their broadcasts to match this awesome competition.

Yeah it was pretty bad. No in-game audio feed for the first 20 minutes or so? Weak. Though I'll give the studio host a bit of credit for calling the game in the meantime. It did feel a bit "public access" throughout.
