Predictions – La Liga – Week 25

Today’s history lesson kids comes courtesy of our friends at Heads or Tails. They tell us of a certain cheese eating manager whose family renounced their Spanish heritage after the civil war in 1936 and fled to France. They also informed us of the historical rivalry and the bragging rights that drive a match between...

Hand Of Titi Leaves Greens Le Blue

It’s no wonder the Republic Of Ireland are nicknamed ‘The Nearly Men‘… I mean they Nearly made it to a penalty shoot out (which I reckon they would have won), they Nearly scored more than just one goal which would have put them into the finals and late in the game the ball that was...

Predictions – 19th / 20th September

After some mid week Champions League action and Atletico’s poor showing, they’re in for a complicated match against champions Barcelona. Our sources over at Heads or Tails suggest it’ll be a Barca white wash as they attempt to let off some steam following their frustrating draw to Inter mid week. Predictions: Osasuna 2 v 1...

Munchen Get Shpoonkten! Ax Ya!

I’ve never been spanked before, nor have I ever wished too, so I’m assuming* that it would be less painful than playing against Barcelona and their extraordinary attacking prowess at the Camp Nou… especially when they’re really in the mood to kick your ass! So I think it’s safe to say that even if Bayern...

All aboard!

Given that in the first match Lyon were unlucky not to come away with the win, I was actually quite amazed at how easily Barcelona carved through them like a slab of fluorescent-yellow French butter that had been left on the kitchen bench all night long. I was also amazed at how Pep Guardiola kept...

Thierry spares Barca blushes

To be frank, Lyon should have won this battle, instead, they now have to go to the Camp Nou in a fortnights time and have to put in a very special performance to even have a chance of making it through to the next phase… oh, and just so you understand how special a performance...

Review – Barcelona 5 v 0 Deportivo

Barcelona are in scintillating form right now and overnight added another 5 goals to the 54 they’d already deposited in different goal mouths around Spain… 59 (total) frickin goals and we’re only a bees dick off the half way point of the season! And only 13 goals against!?… that’s a +46 goal different! If this...

Thierry missing the Premiership?

Im not really going to comment much on the results of this weekends Euro 2008 Qualifiers… you can read all the news and reviews here. What’s got my attention over the last week or so regards Thierry and the Gunners: Former Arsenal striker Thierry Henry has admitted his presence in the Gunners line-up towards the...

Once, twice, three times Thierry

So it turns out that Thierry Henry is an avid reader of this blog and took offense to what I wrote a few days ago. Yet, being the pofessional that he is, chose to prove me wrong on the park instead of posting a comment and dissin’ me in front of my peeps… Respect! Highlights:...

More problems in Barcelona!

There’s a problem other than Ronaldinho down at FC Barcelona… And no, it’s not Puyol’s hair; Henry is struggling to score! He is destroying defenders with his pace and first touch but seems to freeze up when he sets his sights on goal. The last goal he scored was in the Champions League and that...
