No amazing games today by the looks of it.

Good day for Norwich even though we didn't play though. We'll be up to second even if we draw on Monday. :D

I'm really thinking we might get promotion two seasons running. xD

Tomorrow is yet another week for two CL fixtures, beginning with Bayern Munich locking horns with Italian giants Inter Milan. The German side hold a one goal advantage, seeing as Gomez managed to net at the dying moments in the first leg at San Siro, after a slip-up from Cesar. So, it promises to be another exciting night for us.

Bayern Munich haven't been showing any consistency lately, after losing three games in a row. However, in their last Bundesliga game against their 'bogey' team, Hamburger, they managed to demolish the visitors, in a highly convincing performance, with 6 goals to 0. Bayern are in high spirits, ready to book a seat in the quarter finals and avenge [again] for last year's CL final loss.

My prediction will be a draw: 1-1. Bayern will qualify. The element of surprise is always present.

Your predictions on tomorrow's and after tomorrow's CL fixtures?

I'm thinking an Inter win, you mentioned Bayern's inconsistency. Should be an entertaining game though.

My side Norwich really do like to leave it late.

Norwich 3-1 Bristol City FT
(HT 1-0)
Holt (pen) 2 __ Adomah 65
Lansbury 89
Surman 90+1

That makes it 20 points in the last 15 minutes of games this season. xD

Also just read that Arsenal are probably going to loan in Lehmann. I guess they need a solid keeper, not many would be a better fit even if he is about 900 now.

^ That is the opposite of Boro, they must have given away 20 point in the last 15 minutes of games this season.

United-Marseille tonight, I'm glad Valencia is back otherwise we would have no chance.

It's a trait of successful teams. xD

I'm not sure what game, if any i'll watch tonight. Might end up watching Seattle Sounders v LA Galaxy on ESPN. :L

How have Manchester United been this season, good to watch?

Well, Inter Milan defeated all expectations and beat Bayer Munchen 2-3 in the last minutes. Bayern will be remembering that ball that ran freely over the goal line until someone managed to kick it... into the wood. The champions won't give up so easily.

Also, Barça player Eric Abidal was diagnosed liver cancer and will undergo surgery this Friday, in the best (hopefully) scenario, he'll be out for the rest of the season.

I flicked on the TV just as Man Utd conceded, totally forgot about it.

Looks like i got the Inter prediction bang on though.

Only a couple of hours until this seasons MLS kicks off, anyone follow that league?

Terrible to watch but somehow our seemingly incapable squad have got the job done.

Good luck to Abidal.

He has been a good servant, I think we can let him off for one shoddy performance.

I watched a Seattle game once to see how good Montero was. Other than that, no. I think MLS will get a bit more popular in the coming years though with players like Beckham & Henry moving over there.

Liverpool must be going really bad this season.
But SC Braga were good too :D It's nice for them, and nice for the Portuguese football.

Does anyone actually rate Kyut?
I think he is a horrible player. I don't care if he scored a hatrick, anyone could have put them home last week. You know the total distance of his goals? From where he touched the ball to the goal? 7 feet! The total of his goals! XD

Anyway, CL draw was interesting. We would have to get Chelsea.

So, there are a lot of chances that we'll end up with this:

La Liga: Madrid-Barça 16 April
Copa del Rey: Barça-Madrid 20 April
CL Semifinal 1st leg: Madrid-Barça 26-27 April
CL Semifinal 2nd leg: Barça-Madrid 3-4 May

I can see a civil war starting here in a couple of months.

Sounds fun.

I wouldn't count Spurs out yet though, I can't remember the last time Madrid did well in Europe and Spurs have really stepped their game up in the champions league. I would say don't count Shakhtar out but its a bit pointless.

It doesn't look like a good run-in for us anyway, Fergie banned off the touchline for five games.

England ALL OVER Wales today in the Euro 2011 group stage. It seemed like England just got bored after the second gold in the 15th minute.
Too easy of a game really.

Good match between England and Ghana at the moment.

Its a shame Carroll scored though, he is supposed to fail at international level. :(

I disagree with this, I think Andy Carroll will be a great player for years to come. He's a great target man.

Although the 35mil price tag still baffles.

Inter 2- Schalke 5

I just don't even. That's even more amazing that Madrid playing ( nd winning) a quarterfinal, I'd say.

Portugal owns the Europa League. Just saying. :D
All three teams have done something historical. But I think the one that must be complimented the most is SC Braga. Taking down Celtic and Sevilla in the Champions, then being 3rd place in the group stage (which could perfectly be 2nd!), then eliminating Liverpool and Kiev in the Europa League... they are heroes over here! Now they'll meet SL Benfica in the semifinals.

Heck, the semifinals are two awesome matches. Either Braga - Benfica and Porto - Villarreal will be great games with unpredictable results. I strongly believe that we will have a Portuguese final in the Europa League.


About the Champions League, Schalke is doing great but I don't think they will get past Man U and, like Went said previously, there will be a civil war in Spain. Barça - Real is a must-watch game. 4 matches between those two in less than a month will raise hell xD

I'm already getting my bulletproof vest, I don't think it's safe anymore for me to support Barça here in Madrid XD I think I'll just watch the matches at home, with my friends (specially since all four are going to be on public TV channels, so we don't really need to go to a pub this time XD).

Also, the match against Porto is going to be something worth watching. Hopefully Villarreal will be celebrating something when I go visit my step-dad there this summer.

So, first go, Madrid-Barça (Liga): The referee was crap, I tell you. It took him two identical penalties on Villa to realize he had a whistle on his hand, and he liked it so much that he made up another one for Madrid just to compensate things up.

Not like it matters much since Madrid needed to win to have a slim chance to win the league and they didn't, so... three in a row for Barça now.

Let's see what happens next Wednesday during the cup.

I feel sorry for Ronaldo, he deserves better than the current Madrid team.

While not trying to sound to overconfident, I think Schalke will be brushed aside fairly simply.

Wenty, we're after De Gea now apparently. :D Then again Aguero was supposed to have moved to United about three years ago and still nothing.

So... ManU playing with Schalke on 26th April...
ManU pretty much defeated my favorite Chelsea, oh well. Schalke did annoy me more with beating Inter, so I'll support ManU.

As for Barca vs. Madrid on 27th... Well... Hala Madrid!

Man United should win that. I know we suffered a blow to Man City, but I think we have a good chance in the Champions League.

They threw a party because they tied a match they needed to win against Barça playing at home, losing the Liga on the process. I'd like to see how they do in Valencia during the Cup final and in Barcelona in the CL 2nd leg.

I'm not massively big on football, but all the recent brouhaha regarding Torres and Chelsea has become so intense amongst my friends that even I'll end up knowing when he finally scores for them. All I know is that £50 million is a crapload of money, even if it is for a very good player. (There's also all the Facebook groups like 'I've scored as many goals for Chelsea as Torres' and 'Chelsea could have had 294,117,647 Freddo bars instead of Torres', which are always good for a mild chuckle!
