GK Brad Guzan plays 90 in Aston Villa's 1-1 tie with CSKA Moscow
F Marcus Tracy in the 18 but doesn't play in Aalborg's 3-0 victory over Deportivo de Coruna
MFs DaMarcus Beasley (70 minutes) and Maurice Edu (90) start for Glasgow Rangers in a 4-0 victory over Forfar. Beasley left when, according to the BBC, "Elliot Smith is sent off for a shocking lunge at DaMarcus Beasley. Forfar are down to 10 men and that tackle has momentarily sucked the atmosphere out of Station Park. Aaron Niguez comes on for Beasley, who limps back to the dressing room."
MF Clint Dempsey plays 90 in Fulham's 3-0 loss at Manchester United
MF Jose Francisco Torres 68 in Pachuca's 2-2 tie at Puebla
D Michael Orozco 90 in San Luis' 2-0 loss at Cruz Azul

Semi related note, great quote in today's BBC about foreign players 'settling in' to Scottish Football:

"Kilmarnock midfielder Manuel Pascali says he is enjoying life in Scotland, but added his team-mates drink "industrial quantities" of alcohol and run round the pitch like madmen. (Daily Record)"

Made me think of our 2 US midfielders, frankly...

Elliot Smith??? Did he jab DMB with a heroin needle?

I hope Beasley is okay. I was scared as soon as I read "Beasley left." The rest didn't make it any easier. At least he's limping...

Why do the Scots seem to want to kill beaz? I thought their big issue, aside from alcoholism, a crummy national team, and the inability to beat England at anything, was religous discrimination, not blatant racism. Of course, Im assuming Eliott Smith is a white dude.. if not then that whole theory is crap.

Beasley gets hurt. Shocking.

Some tough reading there. Beasley injured, while Gooch, Guzan, and Dempsey are on the end of poor results. I guess it's at least good that everyone listed made the bench.

3-0 Braga? Ouch.

Based on the picture on this page, I'd say Smith is definitely white:

White? He's ghostly pale.

Let's not make this into a racial thing....Just because a guy's got an electric blue outline, it doesn't mean he represents Murdoch's (lack of) principles.

"DaMarcus has got nasty stud marks on his left shin," said Rangers assistant manager Ally McCoist. "We'll have a look at it in the morning and see how bad it is. As soon as the lad made the challenge, I thought it was crude to say the least. But there's no lingering anger from us, because it wasn't that type of game.

He's invisible, of average height, and I don't know what to make of his weight:

Height 5'10
Weight 11st 0lbs

I don't know how much to think was behind the tackle, thus have no way to imagine how bad it is.

Wait, so DeMarc gets crocked once, and suddenly the white Scots are out to get him?

Just a bad tackle, happens all the time.

Just a reserve game but Hanhnemann got 90 minutes for the first time out after 2 months with a calf injury. Seemed to do well. Hopefully he will be back seeing first team action soon!

1 stone = 14 pounds. therefore 11 stone is 154 pounds.

You need to get some higher quality stuff.
