Prediction - Man Utd v Liverpool

Prediction – Man Utd v Liverpool

With Arsenal’s win sending them top of the pops last night, pressure now lies with United to produce the goods against a Liverpool who have all hands back on deck and firing(?)… not to mention their desire to break into the top four again. If they can combine, Torres and Gerard should give Vidic and...

Oh Benitez, What A Mess!

Knocked out of the Champions League and Carling Cup not so long ago, inconsistent performances in the Premier League against second rate teams [here, here and here], a constant injury cloud over star players Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres and now an FA Cup exit to Championship side and Premier League hopefuls Reading! Oh Benitez,...
Spotlight: Fernando Torres

Spotlight: Fernando Torres

The launch of these bad boys may still only be 3 days away, but that didn’t stop me spotting them a mile away. Actually, to be Totally honest, it was Torres’ silky gold locks that got me all hot and bothered at first (reminded me of an old flame!)… more than anything though, I was...

Prediction – Chelsea v Liverpool

They don’t really get much bigger than this, two of the “top four” sides with a rich history of fiery matches, squaring off against each other in a no-holds barred match to the death!… well not quite but I’d be front and center if that was the case and I’d almost pay extra to see...

Reds Off The Mark

When Gerrard and Torres fire, Liverpool are generally unstoppable, but last night saw them welcome a new flame and recruit to Anfield… Glen Johnson. With one goal and one assist, at the moment he is the Premier League’s best right back and in purely statistical terms that makes him more efficient than the whole of...

Predictions – August 18th

I'm slowly sorting through the problems on the site and will be bringing you a full review of the main matches from this round... not much else to report so early on, apart from I don't think there'll be too many upsets tonight so here's how I've picked'em:
Confed Cup - Spain Through To Semis

Confed Cup – Spain Through To Semis

Judging by the highlights below, it seemed as though Spain were the only team on the attack, whilst their opposition hid in caves continuously tried to catch them on the counter. With laser-like precision (or not), España hit their opposition with wave after wave of attack, almost like they were dropping bombs in the Middle...

Spain Toy With NZ

C’mon, as if you didn’t know that Fernando Torres and co were going to shit this one in? I must admit though, the 17 minute hat-trick was a bit of a surprise… was there actually another team playing!? It was complete domination and the Spaniards were playing at some sort of divine pace… so I...

‘Pools Earth Shattering Result

Guus Hiddink is a renowned fitness enthusiast who is especially good at getting teams to perform at their peak levels whilst still playing an entertaining brand of football. So it’s no wonder that the ever aging Chelsea mob have once again been steered onto the right path of becoming a tough European force… can anybody,...

Race not over yet!

Wow… I think I grossly underestimated Liverpool’s abilities this weekend and may have given even United a little too much credit as well! In all fairness though, not even the maddest of mad Kopites could have imagined a scoreline like this… especially at Old Trafford! But what exactly does this mean? Well I’ve said a...

That was easy!

I haven’t been an admirer of Benitez’s work of late… heck, I haven’t really given Liverpool credit for anything since their win against Chelsea well over a month ago and even then it was cause Chelsea were on the brink of implosion. So anyway, the thing I enjoyed most about watching this match was seeing...

Review – Liverpool 2 v 0 Chelsea

Fernando Torres, the ’14yr old looking’ 24 year old, saved Liverpool from their fifth consecutive draw by scoring two late goals and putting a big dent in Chelsea’s title aspirations. And even though I seriously thought they were going to struggle to contain Chelsea last night, it was actually the Blues, who even prior to...
