83% of Statistics are made up

September 29, 2010 by

Well, the title of this post is a lie.. but these statistics are definitely not made up, they are straight from the horse’s mouth. As I have nothing better to do a Wednesday evening I have been browsing through UEFA Champions League Midweek stats pack, thanks to Tron9 for pointing me in the direction of this statistical beauty. Seeing […]

A New Low

This week saw the third round of the Carling Cup take place, many big Premiership names have fallen… Chelsea, Manchester, City, Spurs, Sunderland, Everton and now Liverpool. I must admit I didn’t see the game, I went to bed knowing Liverpool were winning 1-0 thanks to Jovanovic and thought things would be OK. I awoke this […]

Berba and Bony Ruin my Weekend

It was tough enough sitting through yesterdays match, watching the mancs beat us 3-2. Then today I woke with renewed optimism for Slavia Prague – albeit slightly depressed from Berbabtovs hat-trick. It would be the first league derby I would go and watch between Slavia Prague and Sparta Prague, Sparta fresh from a 3-2 victory against Italians Palermo. Ironically on the same […]

Man Utd 3-2 Liverpool

The dust has settled on yesterdays game and the defeat to Manchester United still depresses me. Avoiding the league table for the next few weeks is a must for Liverpool fans, the depressing of sight of 16th place is not a good look. The performance was decent yesterday, I felt the 1-0 scoreline at half […]

Sparta Prague banish CL play-off defeat

The Czech champions Sparta Prague took on Italian outfit Palermo last night in the Europa League, it was an entertaining game with the home side taking the 3 points in a 3-2 victory. Most of my experiences of Czech football to date have been lacking quality and skill and I wasn’t expecting that to change […]

Happy Harry?

It was Tottenham Hotspurs first forray into the Champions League this week as they travelled to Germany to face Werder Bremen. The first 40 minutes went according to plan, racing into a 2 goal lead but Bremen fought back and clinched a 2-2 draw. I think Spurs fans would have taken a point before the game and given the […]

Porto’s Perfect Start

September 14, 2010 by

My attention was recently drawn to the Portuguese league and FC Porto in particular, the reasoning being that they are currently being managed 33 year old Andre Villas Boas – Jose Mourinho’s previous right hand man at Porto, Chelsea and Inter Milan. It looks like that Mourinho’s former assistant has picked up Jose’s winning mentality, already securing his […]

Viktoria Zizkov

The kick off time for Viktoria Zizkov v Ziln was 10:15 am on Sunday morning, it was an early start and it felt like we were going to watch a Sunday league game down the park. I decided to treat my Dad to the delights of the Czech second division, the locals were drinking the cheap beer and […]

Villa name Houllier as boss

Aston Villa finally named their new boss after 30 days of Kevin MacDonald fumbling around in the managers seat. Former reds boss Gerard Houllier takes charge at Villa Park, I must admit it I was shocked when I first heard the rumours that Houllier was linked to the Villa job. Does Houllier really need the stress of the […]

Beware of the Belgians

After going through some of the line ups of Fridays international games, I stopped and paused when I got to Belgium v Germany. It wasn’t the Germans which I was in awe of, it was the Belgians. The front four of Hazard, Fellaini, Dembele and Lukaku looks very, very tasty and bodes well for the […]
