Match Day Observations - Feb. 12

Wayne Rooney wins the Manchester Derby in dramatic fashion

"It defies description." Well said.

Edinson Cavani stares through souls
Half Jesus, half Antonio Banderas in Desperado, Edinson Cavani freaks the world out with stares that see into your soul. Today, the Uruguayan hitman scored a brace against Roma, keeping Napoli three points behind leaders AC Milan in the Serie A.

Kranjcar does it again
Niko Kranjcar wins it for the Spurs again! After well played game, the out of favor Croatian has made Harry Redknapp's selection process that much harder days before Tottenham's Champions League clash with AC Milan.

Barcelona stutter...
...and the whole world comes crashing down on them? Absolutely not. The talented side unluckily drew against Sporting de Gijon, who grabbed an early lead, then sat 11 men behind the ball all game. Was it utterly horrible that Barca didn't win?? Come on, critics.

Finally, Van Persie is scoring regularly
Twinkle-toed Robin Van Persie is finally bulging the net like we know he can. The flying Dutchman netted a brace to help Arsenal to a 2-0 win against Wolverhampton today, keeping them on pace with United.

Lyon crush derby host St. Etienne
In a heated rivalry, Lyon dispatched of St. Etienne 4-1. Note: Carlos Bocanegra scored St. Etienne's lone goal...nice!

Bayern crush Hoffenheim 
FC Hollywood smacked do-gooders Hoffenheim at Allianz Arena this afternoon, with Arjen Robben doubling up. In the victory, the Dutchman was reunited with his favorite playmaker, Franck Ribery, for the first time in months. In addition, Robben is your Sensible Soccer ridiculous picture of the day!!! Congratulations, weird constipated old man face!

Please stayed tuned for a rather comprehensive Champions League leg one preview!
