Goal in 11 Seconds

Roy Makaay of Bayern Munich scored 11 seconds into the Champions League match against Real Madrid on Wednesday. Here is how he did it. Be patient with this clip; it takes a moment to get to the goal but the replay (from above and behind the net) provides an interesting perspective. Also, as a bonus to my very special readers, you'll receive some German (??) commentary.

Fantastic opening goal, good game, and an edge-of-your-seat last 15 minutes. Bayern have really improved under Hitzfeld. They played to win. Go Bayern!

Watching Roberto Carlos on that play makes me feel better about Bryan Namoff.

Beauty. And at one pt., you can hear in the background the call and response between the stadium announcer and the crowd, when the score was updated. As I heard it at least:
Announcer: FC Bayern?
Crowd: Eins!
A: Madrid?
C: Null!
A: Danke.
C: Bitte! (you're welcome.)
I'd love it if MLS teams picked up on this tradition, but then they'd need a more active audience.

I thoroughly enjoy watching Real Madrid lose. HAHAHAH!!!!!

When will they realize that its time to get rid of Roberto Carlos and Fabio Capello?

I was fortunate to watch this excellent game on ESPN Deportes. The first leg was great as well. When will ESPN start showing more games on its English language outlets? When I didn't have Deportes, I was annoyed at missing so many good CL games because ESPN would only show one or two per week. They should broadcast every single game of the quarterfinals and semis, and as many games of the Round of 16 as they can fit into their schedule. Otherwise, let FSC show the games that ESPN isn't willing to show.

Up here in Lancaster, PA, Comcast showed the Bayern game on ESPN Classics at 5 p.m. and said repeatedly that they were going to do so during the Man U-Lille game on ESPN2, which began at 2:30.
So we had a double header. Sehr, Sehr gut!!

Is anyone else annoyed when watching games on delay on ESPN classic, the news update scroll on the bottom reveals the scores of CL games?

I've taken to putting cardboard over the bottom quarter inch of my screen, but it is ridiculous.

As always, Goff, thanks for the great video posts. And yes, that is German, with a heavy Bavarian accent.

Yeah, whats annoying is that the Real-Bayern game was the most compelling game out of the 4 yesterday and ESPN choses to show the ManU-Lille game that was all but resilved after the first game.

If they were set in HAVING to show an English side, the Arsenal-PSV game would have been better - the tie was still up in the air.

There was no way, no way, Lille was going to score 2+ goals in Old Trafford.
