10:28 AM ET 03.08 | Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has confirmed he wants to sign Arsenal goal machine Robin van Persie. Mancini has hailed Van Persie as "one of the best strikers in Europe," and says he will target the Dutchman in the summer. Mancini has already raided the Gunners for Samir Nasri, Kolo Toure, Emmanuel Adebayor and Gael Clichy since being hired by City in 2009.

First. I can't see him going to City but I think Chelsea is a possibility (if they get mourinho).

That should be a pretty good match. Is ManU taking EL seriously?

ManU kills the board....

Atletico is really taking it to Bestikas. 3-0 in the first half in a pretty awesome display of attacking soccer. Could we be in for another 7 goal performance from a Spanish team? Simone has really turned this team around.

Meanwhile, on the other channel, Sporting-Man City looks petty entertaining. It's real nice to see Mati Fernandez back at his best.

I keep switching back and forth because I can't decide which game to stay with.

I'm guessing Viajero's going with 7-0 Athletic. I'll take Athletic 2-1.

Of course they are... I know we had this conversation before but I refuse to use ticketmaster at all cost. I also refuse to cheer along to Gary Glitter when played at sporting events.

It's my own private protest.
