That was quite a game. And Hebrew highlights, no less. I assume the red card was for kicking the guy while he was down, and not the little shove?

So, can anyone tell me where I can watch replays of this game, and the Arsenal-Liverpool tilt?

Not only did Pepe push the Getafe player then kick him twice while he was down, he also punched another member of the opposition while he was leaving the pitch, swore at the fourth official, and then came back on the pitch to celebrate the winning goal. He's out for at least the next match v. Sevilla, El Clasico in 10 days, and v. Valencia. Speculation is he could be out for the rest of the season.

But that winner by Pipita Higuain was beautiful. He has such a knack for them (he's the opposite of a poacher--he specializes in the tough ones). If he only played in his natural support striker position more regularly...

Totally unrelated, but that's me . .

What's up with WAPO's soccer related articles . . . S. G. got the ear of the ombudsman?

I'd link to it but am hardly that internet savvy . . . . anyways, the WAPO article about the Latino officer in NOVA helping kids through soccer . . .

fischy, if you have GolTV, they are supposedly showing a replay of the Real Madrid-Getafe match at 1 am.

I think ESPN360 puts up replays after a few days, but I'm not sure if they cover La Liga or EPL. Seems like most of their replays are international, Italian, Dutch, or German leagues

An article I read somewhere said the ref actually showed Pepe the red three seperate times. What he did was despicable and deserves to miss however long they tell him he will.

Man, when Guti hit that free kick, I knew it was on. When Higuain hit the last one I was doing laps around my house. I loved even Iker running down the field to celebrate.

NIce game, excellent goals. Pepe should be banned for the rest of the season; disgraceful behavior from him.
