Rooney’s Champions League Football Preview

by Thomas Rooney If only to avoid talking about Norwich’s last two results, I have decided to focus my football betting on the Champions League this week. It is a competition that is really getting going and as ever, the British based teams will be in action over Tuesday and Wednesday night. I’ll be previewing […]

Champions League football preview

by Thomas Rooney There isn’t much rest for the Premier League’s top players. The majority of Arsenal, Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea’s players were involved in international fixtures last week and after returning to Premier League action at the weekend – it is now time for some Champions League football. In terms of football betting, […]

Gutted for Chelsea, but fair play to Manchester United…

I tried to stay neutral, but as much as I do genuinely believe that United have been the best team in Europe this season I still wanted Chelsea to win the Champions League last night. I can’t help but think I jinxed them. Oh well, there’s always next year John – but if I were […]

The Week in Review: 21st-27th April 2008

Champions League Semi-Final (First Leg) Predictions

The first leg of the Champions League Semi-Finals take place tonight and Wednesday. We’re guaranteed an English side in the final and there’s a real possiblity of an all-English final in Moscow next month. As usual I couldn’t resist making some predictions… Liverpool v Chelsea (ITV1 from 19:30 tonight). Liverpool and Chelsea can’t seem to avoid […]

Champions League Quarter Final (Second Leg) Predictions

It’s time to turn our attention briefly away from the hustle and bustle of the Championship and the East Anglian Derby, and take a look at the Champions League Quarter-Finals. I’ve tried to resist but as I can’t help myself I’ve made a few predictions… Chelsea vs. Fenerbahce. The Turks take a slim lead to […]

Champions League Quarter-Final (First Leg) Predictions

It’s time to turn our attention away from the basement battle in the Championship for a moment and take a look at the Champions League Quarter-Finals. Four English teams make up last eight this season which is a real achievement and we already know that at least one side will make the semi-finals, but how […]

Calling all conspiracy theorists

The Champions League draw was apparently leaked a couple of hours before the draw was officially made, according to a report in the Mirror. Oh wait, the Mirror? Damn, that sounded juicy for a minute didn’t it? Anyway, if you haven’t seen the draw, here you go: Arsenal vs. Liverpool; AS Roma vs. Manchester United; […]

What is the best league in Europe?

After four English teams reached the Quarter Finals of the Champions League Sir Alex Ferguson has hailed the Premier League as the best in Europe. That’s a pretty big statement to make, but with the English league contributing 50% of the remaining teams in the world’s premier club competition you can kind of see why. […]

Champions League Last 16 Predictions: Wednesday’s games

I was 50/50 last night, so let’s see how I get on tonight… Chelsea V Olympiakos. Chelsea were very disappointed with last week’s goalless draw in Greece, and I just think they’ll be too strong tonight. With or without Petr Cech. My prediction: Chelsea 2 Olympiakos 1. FC Porto V Schalke 04. Schalke take a […]

Last night’s predictions – how did I get on?

So how did I get on with last night’s predictions? I thought Milan would beat Arsenal 1-0, so got that one very wrong (I’m pleased to say). Went for Barcelona 2 Celtic 0, so got the score wrong but the right result (although to be fair that wasn’t really a hard one). I predicted Manchester […]

Champions League Last 16 Predictions: Tuesday’s games

You know how I love to make predictions, right? Well how can I resist the Champions League games taking place tonight and tomorrow? We’ll do with tomorrow’s games tomorrow, but first up we’ve got… AC Milan V Arsenal. Goalless from the first-leg, the Gunners are definitely going to have their work cut out for them […]

Kitson comments a symptom not the problem, but it’s not all doom and gloom

“We are not going to win the FA Cup and I do not give two s***s about it, to be honest. I care about staying in the Premier League, as does everybody at this club. Our Premier League status is not protected by winning the FA Cup and it is as simple as that. It […]

FA Cup Giant-Killings: Part One

This coming weekend is one of the most anticipated of the football calendar – FA Cup Third Round weekend. I love the FA Cup. No other weekend this season will generate as much excitement up and down the country as we will experience in the coming days. While it may be true that since the […]
