Gigantic, indeed. Brilliant. Great song selections, as well.

The years have been kind to Paco. I think the way he has maintained his fitness is a testament to his commitment to the game.

The idea of a player being fined and suspended for defending himself against a pitch-invading fan is preposterous.

I would have preferred that Cruz Azul have gone through in a more decisive fashion, but I'll take it.

Very much looking forward to the forthcoming interviews.

Yes indeed, in fact I reckon that if you stood Paco Palencia next to young Martin Bravo you would not be able to tell them apart...

My instincts are to agree with you about Pacheco, but he DID break the bloke's nose!

Thanks for comments
