2211: That's it from me folks - once again you've all been bootiful. Like me, you've turned down numerous offers of dates, drinks and dinner on this Valentine's Day to watch the footy and banter with your faceless mates while doing so. Legends one and all. I'll catch you next time.

2205 - PLAYER-RATER
Tottenham strikers Robbie Keane and Dimitar Berbatov lead the way on your player-rater, but Slavia keeper Vaniak's rating of 6.29 is ridiculous - the boy didn't put a foot wrong and made three or four super saves. Get it sorted people.
And you can also have your say on Bolton's fabulous win over Atletico don't forget.
2201: Spurs striker Robbie Keane gives his honest assessment: "We wanted to finish it off tonight and for an hour we were brilliant and looked like doing so. Then we took our foot off the pedal and let them back in which is not good enough. Still, a win's a win."
"In all fairness to Spurs they're never boring to watch!"

2155 - FULL-TIME: Slavia 1-2 Tottenham
Bizarre ol' game that. At one point Tottenham looked to be cruising to a comfortable win and then Cerny's blunder lets Slavia into the game and the hosts go on to finish much the stronger side. Still, a decent enough win for the Londoners - though with the second leg just three days before the Carling Cup final against Chelsea they might have wanted it to be more comfortable.
2153: Berbatov almost restores the two-goal cushion with a fizzer from 20 yards, but it goes past the post.
2152 - FULL-TIME: Bolton 1-0 Atletico
Superb result for Bolton, simply superb. They had to hang on a bit late on, but El Hadji Diouf's strike proves the difference between the sides.
2148: Just three minutes for Bolton to hang on at the Reebok...
"If the keepers were on opposite sides Spurs would be winning 10-0 by now. Good to see we've dropped one keeper who kept commiting howlers and brought in another who's prone to exactly the same thing!"
sublimesuperspur on 606
2147: Massive escape for Tottenham as Erich Brabec slams a bullet header against the bar from a corner. Spurs, who were cruising at one stage, are hanging on a bit now.
2146: Atletico are piling forward at the Reebok...
2143: Close! David Strihavka controls well right side of the box and flashes a decent effort just past Radek Cerny's far post.
"Vaniak is immense. Nuff said."
Rectory_Blue on 606
2140: More excellent work from Dimitar Berbatov - he's been cracking tonight - and he feeds Steed Malbranque, whose right-footed drive goes wide of the goal.
2137: Unbelievable save from Vaniak in the Slavia goal as he somehow gets a fingertip to Dimitar Berbatov's superb curled free-kick.
"Have I understood this correctly? There was an incident with spitting and a goal, and El Hadji Diouf was the one doing the SCORING and not the spitting?"

2133 - GOAL: Bolton 1-0 Atletico
And would you believe it, Bolton have only gone and scored the opener with the next move of the game as El Hadji Diouf wallops the shot past Christian Abbiati.
2132 - RED CARD:
Sergio Aguero fouls Matthew Taylor and Bolton earn a free-kick. However, the Argentine must have said something unsavoury - some are suggesting spitting - to the assistant referee because referee Nicolai Vollquartz has shown the star striker a straight red card on 74 minutes. Unbelievable scenes!
2130 - GOAL: Slavia 1-2 Tottenham
Deary me - an absolute howler from Radek Cerny in the Spurs goal and Slavia Prague are right back in the tie. Slavia midfielder David Hubacek's cross is dropped by the Spurs stopper under the bar and David Strihavka prods home. Oops!
2129: Marek Suchy - who spent time at Tottenham on trial a while back - takes aim from 25 yards but his drive flies past the post.
2127: Jamie O'Hara, who has been lively since his introduction in place of Teemu Tainio, beats his man down the left and crosses deep, where Aaron Lennon feeds Robbie Keane to flash a chance over the bar. Darren Bent is introduced in place of Robbie Keane.
2124: Atletico are starting to dominate, with substitute Sergio Aguero starting to pull the strings. Dangerous times this for Bolton but an opportunity for all you Football Manager enthusiasts out there to judge the boy wonder Aguero in the flesh.
2122: More good keeping from Slavia stopper Vaniak, doing well to hold onto Aaron Lennon's deflected drive with Robbie Keane looming.
2119: Miguel Mista tries his luck for Atletico at the Reebok, but it is well charged down by Kevin Nolan.
2118: It's all a bit too easy for Spurs, who are in danger of taking their foot off the pedal in Prague.
"It won't last? (See below) Because she's a Spurs fan??? Yeah, I'd go with that..."

"My mate sent his g/f a picture of the aftermath of Al Capone's Valentines Day Massacre. And nothing else."

Run, manbitesref, run away now...
2112: Diego Forlan goes agonisingly close for Atletico at the Reebok, the Uruguayan striking the stanchion with a belter from range.
"I'm female and have turned down my boyfriend's invitation out to a nice restaurant tonight so I can watch the mighty Spurs on TV (my boyfriend is not so impressed, especially considering he's an Arsenal fan!)"
Shells-Bells on 606
All together now... it'll never last!
2109: Spurs pick up where they left off in the first half, Dimitar Berbatov turning it to Tom Huddlestone, who strikes the angle of post and bar with a rising 16-yard shot.
2105: The match at the Reebok is back under way and the second half is just 30 seconds old when Kevin Davies forces a full-length save from Christian Abbiati, the Atletico keeper turning his 12-yard effort round the post.
2100: Shots from the Slavia stadium of various supporter couples kissing each other - as if we need to see that when we're clearly sad enough to be more interested in the footy than women on Valentine's Day? Kissing in public should be banned, anyway. In fact, I might even start some sort of protest group - who's with me?
2056 - PLAYER RATER
No surprise who has got top marks in the player rater on Slavia-Tottenham so far - Spurs striker Dimitar Berbatov with 9.00. Bottom is Slavia's Marek Suchy with just 4.25. Sounds about right.
"Bolton are holding their own, but I'd like to see how they deal with Aguero in the second half, he is a class act at this level."
MrSport88 on 606
"Looks like the Spurs fat camp is working for them."
theothefuture on 606
2049 - HALF-TIME: Slavia 0-2 Tottenham
Easy as you like for Tottenham, who could be four or five up in Prague.
2048 - HALF-TIME: Bolton 0-0 Atletico
Decent enough half, that, with Matty Taylor having Bolton's best efforts and Jaaskalainen pulling off a stunning save from Antonio Lopez.
2047: Martin Vaniak comes to Slavia's rescue again as he pulls off another excellent save to keep out Tom Huddlestone's 25-yard drive. The hosts are desperate for the half-time break here.
2045: Tremendous double save from Vaniak - both from Dimitar Berbatov right-footed drives inside the box - as Slavia hang on in there at the Stadion Evzena Rosickeho.
2043: Reyes and Simao have gone close for Atletico at the Reebok Stadium but Bolton are holding their own.
2039: Pudil breaks down the left for Slavia and it looks like a really good opportunity to drive at goal but, bizarrely, he looks to cut it back and Jonathan Woodgate easily cuts it out.
"Slavia Prague are making Derby's efforts last weekend look rather good!"

"Why put up that drabble? Its intranslatable."
RedDevil16 (City United In Mourning) on 606
Two made-up words out of seven there RedDevil16, nice work.
"A translation of MU16_94's comment (see below) - "The Atletico Keeper 'Abbiati' used to play for AC Milan, he used to be a class act, but he couldn't get into the first team because of Dida. I always used to sign him on the game Championship Manager 1999/2000. He is class, pure class."
PloKoon13 on 606
Cheers PloKoon13, nice work.
2032 - GOAL: Slavia Prague 0-2 Tottenham
That's clinical. More excellent work from Jermaine Jenas as he drives through the middle and feeds Robbie Keane on the left-hand side of the box, the Irishman slipping the ball under Vaniak with an excellent finish.
"atletico keeper abbiati used 2 b milan no 2 class act he used 2 b but cudnt get in2 1st team cz of dida always used 2 sign him on champ man 1999/2000 n champ man 4
class pure class."
MU16_94 on 606
2027: Excellent play from Aaron Lennon as Spurs break after a good spell of Slavia pressure and the winger drives low at the near post, forcing a smart save from home keeper Vaniak.
2024: Slavia earn themselves a corner as Zokora halts Cerny's progress down the right.
2019: Another Matty Taylor shot at the Reebok, Atletico keeper Christian Abbiati having to palm away his 18-yard effort, and that's four from the leftie already.
2017: It's worth noting that Slavia have not played since their 4-2 defeat in the Champions League away to Sevilla - who at the time were managed by Juande Ramos - and their off-season rustiness is there for all to see at the moment.
"How can some of the Spurs players play in that temperature with short-sleeved shirts! Crazy people."
dangermouse852 on 606
2016: First yellow card of the night at the Reebok as El Hadj Diouf finds his name in the referee's book for a dodgy tackle on Simao. And from the resulting free-kick, former Gunner Jose Antonio Reyes finds the head of Antonio Lopez, who forces Jussi Jaaskelainen into his first save of the night - world class.
2014: Good defending from Jonathan Woodgate as he cuts out an attempted Jarolim through-ball and Spurs' break looks impressive until Dimitar Berbatov mis-controls. The Bulgarian doesn't look too happy - he may have been clipped there.
2012: What the full text commentary hasn't quite conveyed, though, is that Matt Taylor has had a couple of good openings in the early stages, most notably with a long drive that forced a decent save, and Bolton have started brightly. Regular updates on that match on Radio 5 Live.
2011: Aberdeen hero Sone Aluko has been chatting to BBC Scotland, and he says: "I don't think I'll forget that goal. I just hit it well and it went in. That's my best one so far.
"I think we played out of our skins today. In the first half we were magnificent, in the second half we dug in and got a result."
2009: It's a tight opening at the Reebok - there's a shock - with defensive throw-ins and goal-kicks the order of the day according to our text commentary. Nice.
2008: Pudil has Slavia's first shot on goal - a left-footed drive across goal but off-target. Spurs have settled quickly here, though, and Slavia are struggling to get hold of the ball.
2005 - GOAL: Slavia Prague 0-1 Tottenham
Exactly the start Tottenham wanted in Prague - Jenas drives to the edge of the box and though he is tackled, it falls to Dimitar Berbatov, who swipes home on the half-volley from 20 yards out.
2004: Early impressions suggest Spurs are actually playing a 3-5-2, with Huddlestone pushed up into midfield and Chimbonda-Woodgate-Tainio marshalling the backline. Inventive from Ramos or foolhardy?
"Tavares at left back for Slavia Prague? Is heaven missing an angel...?"

1955: Two-and-a-half thousand Tottenham fans are packed into the Stadion Evzena Rosickeho and they are making a right royal racket. Jubbly.
1953: PLAYER RATER
Good marks all round - and deservedly so - for Aberdeen. Sone Aluko is top of the pile with 8.74, while fellow goalscorer Josh Walker has also notched 8.00. Miroslav Klose is best of the bunch for the visitors. He's got 7.30. Don't forget, Player Rater fans, you can vote for the players in the Spurs and Bolton games too....
1949 - FULL-TIME: Aberdeen 2-2 Bayern
That's it at Pittodrie - Aberdeen make it six games unbeaten at home in Europe with their best performance in the competition yet this season. A superb draw against German giants Bayern... but a tall, tall order in the return leg to come. Still, apparently Matg1982 on 606 now has to eat a cat or something, so double joy!
"If Aberdeen played like this in every match, the SPL would be a much tighter league..."
gers-ham89 on 606
1946: Three minutes of added time to be played...
1945: What on earth? Zander Diamond almost gifts Bayern a late winner, treading on the ball in the box with Luca Toni looming, but Jamie Langfield comes to his rescue and it remains level.
1943: Looks like it's heading for a draw this one. Luca Toni - who'd be dynamite if he wasn't so lazy, is causing the odd heart flutter, but both sides looked to have settled for the draw.
1940: Zander Diamond gets free in the box but he can only flick Severin's long throw straight at keeper Rensing.
1935 - TEAM NEWS
Bolton boss Gary Megson makes two changes for the Uefa Cup tie against Atletico - Nicky Hunt replacing cup-tied right-back Gretar Steinsson, with Jlloyd Samuel coming in at left-back as Ricardo Gardner has a virus. New recruits Gary Cahill and Matt Taylor also make their Uefa Cup debuts for Wanderers, with Ivan Campo making his first start in Europe this season.
Atletico, fourth in La Liga, have two players with English experience in their line-up, Diego Forlan and Jose Antonio Reyes.
1934: Bayern break after a terrible Walker corner and Luca Toni feeds Lukas Podolski, whose left-foot drive brings a fine save from Dons keeper Jamie Langfield.
1933: Miroslav Klose gets on to Lahm's cut-back but his shot is blocked and Aberdeen clear.
1928: It's all a bit tense at Pittodrie - but Aberdeen are holding their own at the moment. Not sure this result will be quite enough over the two legs, but I don't think many Dons fans will be too upset with a draw...
"Steve Lovell has entered the fray, which is quite apt, as there is a certain chant 'Lovell's in the Air' for the player, that fits in nicely with your earlier banter."
paulcarm on 606
"How short is Lovell to have to climb off the bench?"
Terrace 3 Blue and White on 606
"This is an amazing showing for the Dons! Come on - get another. Not for Scotland but for yourselves!"
gers-ham89 on 606
Yes Aberdeen! For YOURSELVES!!!
1923: Huge applause for Steve Lovell, who climbs off the bench to replace Darren Mackie.
1919: Andreas Ottl smashes a fine header against the post, but it wouldn't have counted as the official on the far side raises his flag.
"I come check score twice now and Bayern have scored just before I checked. Me bad for Aberdeen?"
Oldham Fan in Cape Town on 606
I don't know about Aberdeen Oldham Fan in Cape Town, but you're not too hot for the English language, I know that. Just kidding me ol' mucker...
1915: Aberdeen are hanging on a bit here, with Bayern pressing their Scottish opponents at every opportunity. Hang on in there boys, come on...
1912 - TEAM NEWS
As reported, Tottenham boss Juande Ramos selects Tom Huddlestone alongside Jonathan Woodgate in defence against Slavia Prague - Ledley King is on the bench - with Teemu Tainio left-back and Pascal Chimbonda right-back. Didier Zokora returns from Africa Cup of Nations duty to take his place in midfield, while keeper Radek Cerny starts against his former club.
"This referee has the consistency of school mashed potato. Sloppy at best."
Chris, Edinburgh via text
1910 - GOAL: Aberdeen 2-2 Bayern
Heartbreak for the Dons - Jamie Langfield saves Hamit Altintop's original effort but the midfielder follows up first to prod home the rebound. We're back level.
1909 - PENALTY
Alan Maybury gets in the way of Ze Roberto's cross and the referee whistles for handball and a penalty. Harsh but probably fair...
1908 - EARLY TOTTENHAM TEAM NEWS
Tom Huddlestone will partner Jonathan Woodgate in defence tonight against Slavia Prague, so no Ledley King it would seem. Full team news to follow.
1905: This will be a crucial period for Aberdeen, you feel, and they look to have settled quickly in this half. An Andreas Ottl effort way off target is as good as it's got for Bayern so far this half.
"Phillipp enters, a Lahm to the slaughter."
GrahamPollCrackers on 606
1900: Philipp Lahm comes on for Bayern for Lell and the second half gets under way...
"I don't care whether Aberdeen blow this lead in the second half - that was the greatest thing I will ever see."
AberdeenInEurope on 606
1850: PLAYER RATER
Sone Aluko's impressed users of our Player Rater application - he's top Aberdeen scorer with 7.25. But Miroslav Klose is matching him - surely that will change soon.
"Don Capello say he come a look o (Aluko)."

You people really need to step up on the puns, these are toilet.
1846 - HALF-TIME: Aberdeen 2-1 Bayern
Well well well, that's the half-time whistle - seconds after Andreas Ottl's drive is deflected inches wide of the Aberdeen goal - and the Dons are loving, LOVING, this...
1843: It could have been 3-1 at Pittodrie as Aluko drives one just past the post from 20 yards. Aluko has one under-19 England cap my good friend and colleague Pranav Soneji informs me. Are you watching Fabio Capello?
1841 - GOAL: Aberdeen 2-1 Bayern
I Don believe it! Lee Miller plays it on to Sone Aluko who, minutes after being bigged up by my good self, pulls the ball down, dinks it over the defender and drills it low into the centre of the goal. Keeper Michael Rensing should have done better but Aluko cares not.
1835: More good work from Aluko - who has looked lively all evening - as he nutmegs Lucio 20 yards from goal before his run into the box is halted by Andreas Ottl.
1833: Ze Roberto kerplunks a stinger goalwards but it strikes the stanchion behind the net. Close.
"Great atmosphere inside Pittodrie, whatever the result it's European glory nights back up in the north east!"
Digit via text
1830: Dons keeper Jamie Langfield is in the right place at the right time to deny Klose a second in two minutes from close range.
1828 - GOAL: Aberdeen 1-1 Bayern
Oh dear - it was nice while it lasted. Route one from Bayern as Lucio's long ball is flicked on by Luca Toni to Miroslav Klose, who drills in first time. Dons keeper Jamie Langfield was Klose, but just not Klose enough. Sorry.
"Top of the Bundesliga and still canny beat Aberdeen? Do you Engerlish still think the SPL is rubbish?"
in_the_name_of_the_wee_man on 606
1825: Almost an immediate reply from Bayern as Altintop gets to the byline and crosses for Miroslav Klose, only for the striker to spoon his close-range effort over. That might've dampened a Pittodrie crowd that is quite literally fizzing at the moment. Well, not literally, but you know what I mean.
1823 - GOAL: Aberdeen 1-0 Bayern
It's 1983 all over again! Aluko does brilliantly to control the ball, dance in the box, and lay it back to Josh Walker who curls a beauty into the right corner to give the hosts the lead. That's his first goal for the club - and what a time to do it! We have ourselves a match people!
"The red boxers I got for Christmas are finally going to come in to use today. Whoopee!"
redandblackT(1899 was a vintage year) on 606
1821: Excellent defending from Mair as he gets the ball away with Luca Toni and Ze Roberto threatening to burst into the Dons box.
1819: Bayern are starting to control possession, which can only be bad news for Aberdeen.
"Looking ahead to later - I must say that Spurs' game has got me Slavia-ting with excitement. Salivating-slaviati...oh, never mind..."
chizzleface on 606
1814: Hamit Altintop tries his luck from range but it troubles only some poor chap munching on a boiled sweet in the crowd.
1811: Close from Aberdeen! Aluko's fine free-kick is inches away from Zander Diamond three yards from goal, but Demichelis clears.
1809: A top stop by Jamie Langfield keeps Aberdeen level, the home keeper diving full-stretch to his right to palm a Christian Lell 20-yarder behind. As my colleague Dazza Warren says, this is already more exciting than last night's fare combined.
1806: Bit of panic in the Bayern box as Mackie charges down the right and feeds Miller, whose turn and shot is skewed up into the air before it is eventually cleared. Great start to this contest and the Dons are not afraid of having a go it seems.
1804: Christian Lell drives down the Bayern right and beats his man before cutting it back to Luca Toni, whose side-footed finish is cleared off the line by Alan Maybury. Close call and an early reminder, as if it were needed, of Bayern's attacking guile.
1802: It's a decent ol' start from the Dons and Sone Aluko gets his pipes moving with a smart dash at the Bayern defence before he loses out to Martin Demichelis.
1800: And we're under way...

1749 - TEAM NEWS
Aberdeen's four injury doubts have all made the starting line-up - Zander Diamond, Andrew Considine, Barry Nicholson and Darren Mackie, who missed training this week have seemingly recovered. It means boss Jimmy Calderwood makes three changes, with Considine, Lee Mair and Sone Aluko coming in for Dave Bus and injured pair Jackie McNamara and Derek Young.
Bayern are without the injured Marc van Bommel and Franck Ribery, while unwell Oliver Kahn flew back to Germany yesterday without leaving the team's plane.
1746: Blimey, there's a hardly a wave of optimism heading the Dons' way is there? Perhaps you lot are forgetting that the Scottish side are unbeaten in their last five home games in European competition?
That said, Bayern are unbeaten in their last four away European games and won their Group F pretty comfortably. Ouch.
"If Aberdeen play like they have been in the last few weeks, there's a good chance they will get cuffed tonight!"

1738: Aberdeen fans will be quick to tell, well, anyone who will listen frankly, that their fixture with Bayern holds happy memories for them - they beat the German outfit 3-2 over two legs in 1983 on their way to winning the Uefa Cup Winners' Cup under Sir Alex Ferguson.
In the final, they beat none other than Real Madrid - could victory this evening kickstart a similar glory trail? No? Nah, probably not...

Ah, the inimitable words of, erm, John Paul Young. You know I had to search on the internet to find that out.

Anyway, enough rambling* - I have of course quoted that young man because it is Valentine's Day - the most romantic day of the year unless, like me, you're either in the office or tied to the footy tonight.
And what a night of footy we have. After a couple of, let's be honest, bore-fests on Wednesday involving Everton and Rangers, I'm hoping for goals galore.
Later on we have Premier League outfits Bolton and Tottenham kicking off their last-32 matches against Atletico Madrid and Slavia Prague respectively.
But first up we have the possibly gargantuan affair of Aberdeen against Bayern Munich.
So, with all of Wednesday's 606 ills now fixed, I'd love for you to make this a footy-love extravaganza via text on 81111 or on 606. Remember - I'm here to help.
