Was this the best round of Champions League play in recent memory? That 4-4 draw between Chelsea and Liverpool on Tuesday didn't feature particularly good soccer, but it was about as thrilling a game as you'll find: changes in momentum, last-minute heroics and more fuel to what has become perhaps England's best rivalry. Porto didn't disappoint against Manchester United, and went down valiantly. Meanwhile, Arsenal finished off Villarreal, but Theo Walcott's pretty chip on Wednesday was a nice bookend to Emmanuel Adebayor's goal of the year in the first leg. And Barcelona -- well, you know how dazzled we are by the Blaugrana in this space. Enjoy.
