Champions League Open Thread: Aston Villa Aren't Playing And We're BORED.

Chelsea are in Denmark to face FC Copenhagen, while Lyon hosts Real Madrid on Monday. Tuesday, (EDIT: Kirsten is a caffeine deprived idiot) Manchester United are at Marseille and Inter Milan welcome Bayern Munich in what everyone hopes will be a much more exciting match than last year's Champions League final.

(Oh, and if you need a beer to drink with these matches, I gave a couple suggestions at Free Beer Movement)

Anyone else really tired of having no Villa to watch and no Aston Villa news to read? This is what we've seen so far:

So...yeah. Discuss.

Also up for discussion:

Whisky/beer/coffee/cyanide: what's your poison during matches?

How on earth soccer writers can be bored by Arsenal - Barcelona. I understand not having a rooting interest, but if you write about the sport, it's not possible to find that match boring. If you find it so, time to find something else to write about.

How easy it is to be fascinated by Jack Wilshere's twitter. Why is it so compelling?

What happened to Fernando Torres' face?

Researchers say what a manager wears has an effect on player performance. This article does not take into account the Martin O'Neill v Gerard Houllier conundrum.

(Oh, and feel free to talk about the matches)
