The Sport Thread

The commentators are in Lisbon.

Ah, is that for every match or only some of them? I was told that BT were doing commentary from the UK, when perhaps they actually meant “some commentary”.

Some of the matches over the last week have been off-tube, but the remainder are all on site.
