A very simple thought came to me one day whilst watching a game of football. I watch far too much of it without actually writing down what I am thinking as I am viewing it, which, for me, is a great... More > shame considering the number of games I watch during a season. So, in order to write a substantial piece of work, I came up with the idea of reviewing all twenty nine knockout games of the 2012-13 Champions League season, all complete with tactical thoughts and diagrams. But I didn't want to write twenty-nine match reports of the type that you can find in your newspaper or online. The idea behind each game is that I'm writing down what I'm thinking or seeing whilst I'm watching the match, so that each report has a live feel to it, and as such is a first time opinion on each match. Well, nearly every game except for the Final, which I reviewed in much more detail after the event took place.
I hope that each review stirs up a little bit of that Champions League feeling in your heart.< Less
