I obviously would have posted here but I've been away.

2-0 for Sevilla is a fantastic result. It isn't over yet but AEK are in a bad spot. Sevilla have a pretty good defense and perhaps more importantly are very good at counterattacking.

It's interesting to see the team with Alves sitting. I'm absolutely not saying they're better because that's not the case but with only Jesus Navas making runs on the right he's looked even more dangerous than usual. If Alves moves on I would expect him to have a monster year.

you think Alves is moving? I thought Sevilla turned down Chelsea's offer.

I think most sevillistas expect him to go. The only official thing is that Sevilla rejected an offer for 29 million euros from Chelsea saying it wasn't even close. Unofficially pretty much every paper said that the Sevilla and Chelsea people agreed to 32 million plus 4 million in extras and then Abramovich said it was too much and so they made a small offer.

Real Madrid is also rumored to have made an offer of 37 million and Cicinho for Alves and Puerta. It initially looks good because 37 million for Alves is ok but Puerta is worth a hell of a lot more than Cicinho so it's actually a bad offer. I don't think del Nido would consider this offer for a second and also don't think Real Madrid actually offered this.

One thing is that if Sevilla qualify for the group stage then surely Alves' price goes up. Having him play in the CL would be huge plus it would likely alleviate his strong desire to play for a huge club.

Seems crazy to me that he wants to move to a bigger club. Sevilla is getting CL football. They are on the rise. I mean, I guess moving to Barca or RM is bigger, but he needs to be realistic IMO. Sevilla, if they keep their core, should be in CL football for a while. Maybe even winning La Liga.

Arsenal seals it with a Rosicky goal against his old team.

Unfortunately the arsenal tv feed was too choppy for me to watch. Currently watching the celtic-spartak moscow match. agg 2-2 and could go to extra time. Nakamura just had a breakaway saved but the spartak keeper.

red card for a spartak defender.
