CARABAO CUP:FULHAM VS LEEDS UNITED

The penalty shootout was really a mixed bag of horrendous and sublime kicks. At the end Meslier got the plaudits for the match winning save although it wasn’t a bad kick at all,only that the Leeds keeper guesses the correct side. Another thing I noticed is that almost every shootout someone always aims for theContinue reading “CARABAO CUP:FULHAM VS LEEDS UNITED”

LA LIGA:FC BARCELONA VS GRANADA

I have got the feeling Ronald Koeman is the worst positioned Barca manager for success in 20 years with the lack of support he is getting from the fans and the club. He openly admitted after the game that he doesn’t have the player’s to play the Barca way, this for me is a signContinue reading “LA LIGA:FC BARCELONA VS GRANADA”

PREMIER LEAGUE:WEST HAM VS MANCHESTER UNITED

Both sets of fans will talk about this match for a long time. David Moyes’s attempt at a Louis Van Gaal blew up in his face spectacularly. Funny how soccer works. If Mark Noble had buried the spot kick, David Moyes would most probably by now been hailed as a coaching genius. Instead everyone isContinue reading “PREMIER LEAGUE:WEST HAM VS MANCHESTER UNITED”

SERIE A:INTER MILAN VS BOLOGNA

The way Inter has gone about losing key players of their title winning side of last season has been exemplary to sides who are in a similar financial position such as say Barcelona. They went out and recruited quality players available at a bargain like that “Dutch guy”😊 Dumfries who had an excellent Euro andContinue reading “SERIE A:INTER MILAN VS BOLOGNA”

PREMIER LEAGUE: MANCHESTER CITY VS SOUTHAMPTON

Despite there being no goals scored, the Saints produce the performance of the weekend with this gutsy performance. Focus will inevitably shift to Pep and the lack of a 20 goal a season striker for the lack of cutting edge up front. Southampton squeezed the man with the ball forcing the mistake in midfield. ThereContinue reading “PREMIER LEAGUE: MANCHESTER CITY VS SOUTHAMPTON”

RACIST ABUSE REARS UGLY HEAD IN LAZIO-MILAN MATCH

This problem is not going away in Italy and I blame the authorities. First of all is the fiaxt that banners of Benito Mussolini are even allowed to be put up. As we know Mussolini is the original fascist, the father of national socialism. Why hasn’t the Italian government banned anything associated with his nameContinue reading “RACIST ABUSE REARS UGLY HEAD IN LAZIO-MILAN MATCH”

EUROPA LEAGUE: LEICESTER CITY VS NAPOLI

The Europa League is back in a leaner much more competitive variation. 32 teams divided into 8 groups of 4 with the winner of each going into the last 16. The runner up faces the third placed teams in the champions league groups. So no margin for error here. Talking points from the King PowerContinue reading “EUROPA LEAGUE: LEICESTER CITY VS NAPOLI”

UCL: LIVERPOOL VS MILAN

A few huge fixtures in the Wednesday Champions League match day ,had a tough time choosing what to watch here. Ultimately I didn’t regret watching these all time great European clubs with a rich history. Liverpool manager Klopp made huge calls in regards to the starting 11 leaving out Mane and Virgil and starting withContinue reading “UCL: LIVERPOOL VS MILAN”

UCL:FC BARCELONA VS BAYERN

The jeers from the Camp Nou faithful said it all before the start of the game. Barca are a shadow of their former self , the DNA of the club is being lost slow but sure, off the pitch the books aren’t balancing and in this game they were played off the park by aContinue reading “UCL:FC BARCELONA VS BAYERN”

PREMIER LEAGUE:EVERTON VS BURNLEY

So how did Dom’s team Everton cope without him? No problem at all. Rafa Benitez’s team came from behind in a ten minute spell after the hour mark to put the Clarets away. But for that first hour the home side were largely outplayed and out possessed of the ball. What I like about SeanContinue reading “PREMIER LEAGUE:EVERTON VS BURNLEY”
