Brace yourselves – it might be Milan’s last game in the Champions League for… let’s say we might be talking about a very long time. Rossoneri are one of the most successful teams in Europe but now they’re in total decline.
It’s just a team built from free transfers and bargains, sitting 11th in Serie A. Mario Balotelli’s transfer in last year’s January transfer window was probably the last [...]

Having established a some worth comfortable 2-0 first leg victory at the Emirate stadium, Pep Guardiola’s Bavarian side will be cautious not to have a repeat of last season’s defeat at the hands of the Gunners when they visit the Alianz Arena for the second leg bout of round 16 games in the UEFA Champions League.
For Arsenal, this may just be another case of DEJA VU as they find themselves [...]

Tim Sherwood’s Spurs side will visit Stamford Bridge this Saturday to face a Chelsea side which they have failed to beat at HOME in their last 25 visits.
Chelsea have not lost [...]

The clock is ticking – FIFA World Cup 2014 starts in less than 100 days. In an ideal world, all of the questions asked by fans, journalists and coaches should be answered by the players. Well, we are not yet there.
That’s way we have those friendly games in March, the last time national teams meet before their coaches select 23 players for the World Cup. It’s like checking your exam before you [...]
Although France and Netherlands might be not amongst the main favourites to win the 2014 World Cup, they’re always regarded as being a strong side with abundance of talent. It’s just they are rarely able to mix those talents into one team. Nonetheless, a match between them should be a cracking game.
Searching the balance
Didier Deschamps and Louis van Gaal still have got some questions to answer. [...]

Football fans – did you expect the Champions League games to end up like this? You must admit that this week ManU showed its…best. Outstanding performance. You might think that someone got the idea of marketing wrong – “it does’t matter what they say about us, as long as they mention our name”!
Yeah, ManU coach got even inked on a fan’s bottom…
Last week we mocked Roben and his urge to win the [...]

This weekend in the Serie A, Inter travels to the capital to face AS Roma with the ambition of getting their first win against Roma as they have failed to do so in their last 6 Serie A meetings.
Roma on the other hand, go into fixture filled with confidence; having won the first leg 3-0 at the San Siro back in October last year.
Roma have had a fine run [...]
Long term success in football definitely comes from finding the right balance between defence and attack. You can find numerous coaches that were sacked because they’re style of football didn’t correspond to what was at their disposal. Andre Villas-Boas was relieved of his duties by Cheslea because he kept going with a high-line of defence and an attacking mentality. His successor Roberto di Matteo went with defensive style of football and won the Champions League.
Nobody expected turkish winter just as nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition. Galatasaray struggling with shaky defence and generally average squad has managed to beat mighty Juventus on what seemed to be a football pitch.
Wesley Sneijder gave Galatasaray three points in a game postponed because of a sudden snow blizzard in Istanbul that destroyed the pitch at the Turk Telekom Arena. Football gods were not generous to Juventus and the Italian champions were [...]
