Carling Cup final build-up

Saturday, 27 February 2010

Tomorrow we will see Manchester United take on Aston Villa in the Carling Cup final at Wembley. With Manchester United likely to field a mixture of experienced and less experienced players, and Villa most definitely likely to field their strongest line-up possible, who win take the trophy home?

But with Wanye Rooney in fine goalscoring form with 11 goals in his last 8 games, you can make a safe bet that he will be on the score sheet tomorrow afternoon.

But whatever happens you can bet that this will definitely be an interesting affair with both teams looking to win the Carling Cup trophy.

I want your opinions on this weekends biggest game, who do you think will win and what are your score predictions?

Champions League Round-up Week 2

Thursday, 25 February 2010

Here are the Champions League results for week 2:

CSKA Moscow 1 - 1 Sevilla
Inter Milan 2 - 1 Chelsea
VfB Stuttgart 1 - 1 Barcelona
Olympiacos 0 - 1 Bordeaux

In what was most probably the biggest game of the Champions League knock-out stages so far. Jose Mourinhos reunion with Chelsea ended up with Inter Milan taking a 2-1 lead into the second leg, after a win at the San Siro courtesy of goals from Diego Milito and Cambiasso's winner after Kalou equalised for Chelsea. With Chelsea getting an important away goal, the second leg at Stamford Bridge sound be a tight affair.

Wednesdays other game saw Sevilla get an away draw in Russia, against CSKA Moscow. After this result, the Spanish outfit must surely be confident of getting a positive result in the second leg.

Tuesdays biggest game saw Barcelona draw 1-1 with Stuttgart away from home. Therefore Barca take a slight advantage into the second leg, by getting the illusive away goal at the Mercedes-Benz Arena through Ibrahimovic after Cacau had given the Germans the lead.

The other game ended in Olympiacos losing 1-0 at home to Bordeaux. A goal from Ciani was enough for the French champions and current leaders to get an away win and therefore put them in the driving seat fro the second leg next month.

What are your opinions of this weeks Champions League results?

Champions League Build-up Day 1

Tuesday, 23 February 2010

Here are todays Champions League fixtures:

Olympiacos vs Bordeaux
Stuttgart vs Barcelona

In todays Champions League games we will see Olympiacos take on Bordeaux and Stuttgart against Barcelona. This fixture will see the current leaders of the French division, take on the team currently in second position of the Greek league. With both teams therefore in good domestic form, this should be an interesting game.

The second fixture will see Stuttgart take on the world giants, and last years Champions League winners, Barcelona. With both teams getting convicing wins over the weekend, Stuttgart winning 5-1, and Barca winning 4-0, they both bring good form to this game. Is is the away leg for Barca but surely they must be confident of winning this game.

What are your opinions and predictions of these two games?

How important is a team captain?

So here's an interesting debate to discuss... as the media frenzy of the John Terry captaincy saga finally dies down, I pose this question to you all, how important is a team captain? Is the role of a captain overstated? Or are they the one guy the rest of the team rely on and look to for inspiration and motivation when backs are against the wall out on the field? I want to know your opinions on the importance of a team captain.
