Which Team Will Come Out On Top At The End Of The Season
It is tricky guessing which teams would come out on top in certain leagues whilst it is relatively easy to predict which ones would prevail in others. In England, Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea are in a 3-way battle to come out on top but at this point in time United seem to be in pole position, not just because they are leading but also because Arsenal do not seem to have too many match winners at the moment, concede too many stupid goals that impede their progress and Chelsea make…Tough Love
It has been a great ride with lots of success and cups but it is time to act tough as that is the only way that AC Milan can be among the front runners in Italian league again. Milan have not won the championship in 5 years and though they have won the champions’ league and Intercontinental cup in that period, their fans would crave being champions in Italy again.Mission Impossible = Fantastic 4
Fernando Torres scored the only goal of the game to put Liverpool through to the quarter-final of the champions’ league at the expense of Inter Milan. From the beginning, Inter knew it would be an almost impossible task to overturn a 2 goals deficit whilst Liverpool were looking to be the 4th English team in the quarter-finals of this year’s champions’ league.Ain’t It Funny How Time Slips Away Part 2
This is Part 2 of the Porto and Monaco sides that met in the champions’ league final just 4 years ago Substitutes Nuno is still at the club as a substitute goalkeeper Pedro Emanuel is 1 of the captains of the club presently Ricardo Costa is currently at Wolfsburg Edgaras Jankauskas has left to play for a number of clubs including Hearts and is currently …Ain’t It Funny How Time Slips Away
Porto and Monaco were surprise finalists of the champions’ league in 2004. This is a brief spotlight on the both sides from just 4 years ago and how many players are still at the club. Just 4 years down the line and the 2 sides are unrecognizable from the sides that took part in the final of the champions’ league with just a handful of players remaining on both sides.Spotlight On Surprise Champions League Finals Runners-Up Bayer Leverkusen Part 2
he final of the champions League of 2002 pitted perennial finalists and winners Real Madrid against Bayer Leverkusen that were appearing in the final for the 1st time in their history. The final itself would always be remembered for that spectacular volley by Zinedine Zidane that turned out to be the winner but the area of interest is with that particular Bayer squad that got to the final.Spotlight On Surprise Champions League Finals Runners-Up Bayer Leverkusen Part 1

It seems that no one wants the La Liga title as Real Madrid and Barcelona seem to be going out of their way not to win it judging by some of the performances and results lately. Real Madrid have lost more games in the past 5 weeks or so than they have done throughout the season and Barcelona have had numerous chances to capitalise but for some reason they have not been able to.It Ain’t Heavy, It’s My Daughter!
Poor form? No, I am just missing my daughter. Two superstars in Barcelona have finally come clean as to why they have been so patchy as regards their current form. Thierry Henry and Ronaldinho have stated recently that the main reason for their patchy play lately is the fact that they do not get to see their daughters on a regular basis.Newcastle’s Mike Ashley May Have Made A Mistake!
Kevin Keegan was 1 of my favourite players as he was so full of enthusiasm and was able to take limited football ability to the very top. He gave his manager, fans and teammates everything and you could not but admire him for that. He did not have the skills of George Best, Kenny Dalglish, Glenn Hoddle or Liam Brady.Unlucky Draw for Italian Sides – Again!
It seems that year in year out Italian sides always get the wrong or the toughest draw imaginable as Roma draws Manchester United and Fiorentina draws PSV. Every time there is a tie of the round it almost always involves an Italian side. You have to wonder sometimes if this is by luck or prejudgment. In the second round of ties this season in the champions’ league, an Italian side came up against tough and quality opposition.Tribute to Raul
Raul scored a penalty goal against Espanyol making it 200 La Liga goals joining an elite group of players that have scored 200 and more including ex Real stars, Hugo Sanchez and Alfredo Di Stefano. The “king of Spain” as I like to call him is the 5th highest goal scorer ever in La Liga and he needs 52 more goals to be all time leading goalscorer. It is debatable if he would…
