The title is going to Chelsea, I see them beating City next week too.

 

Highly doubt that seeing as they dont play each other next week. ;)

 

Yeah this weekend is FA Cup and next is back to league fixtures.

 

Would Chelsea fans really boo Lampard? A player who played for them for 13 years and was one of their most influential players for over a decade. Surely not.

Sorry Doc, but that list is a load of bull. Serie A 2nd? Argentinian league 4th above the Bundesliga? That's crazy.


It's according their criteria which is based on factual statistics so it's not completely bs.
In 2013 there were quite different results.
We could use a thousand other criteria that would give different results but it doesn't mean that their one is not valid.
Anyway you can check their criteria here and it seems fair to me: http://www.iffhs.de/explanations-cwr/

 

 

I know it's not made up or anything, but it's criteria is clearly limited and ignores common sense. Because Serie A is not the 2nd strongest league, and the Argentinian league probably isn't even a top 10 league. 

 

Some fans might boo Lamps. Just in a "You broke our hearts by going to City and we're showing our disappointment and temporary anger towards you, but deep down we still love you" kind of way. I dunno. I know a lot of Chelsea fans do feel a bit annoyed towards Frank for going to City, but I don't know of any who feel genuine anger or will let it affect their feelings towards him long term or anything like that, which is what you sometimes get when players switch to rivals. If he does get boos, the same fans that boo him would probably clap him and sing his name in the same game as well. It's a weird situation.

The criteria for that list is a little ropey, Serie A is bobbins and has been for years, and although La Liga is a good league for it to be so far ahead in the list is not that realistic.  Stats aren't everything, the game has to have passion and and intensity... and you can't teach that.

1. FC Barcelona VS Atletico MADRID

I hope Torres and Mandzukic do the right thing tonight destroying FCB. I am going to wear my Atleti jersey with the David Villa 9 print on it today around Barcelona and probably tomorrow again if FCB loose.


2. Looking forward to watch tomorrow Espanyol - Sevilla. It's going to be a tough match but I hope Espanyol makes it to the final. If they beat Valencia the can destroy Sevilla

My head hurts this morning. I honestly hate them games, I would rather draw a PL team than a league two side. Everybody expects the big teams to smash the small teams but it never happens. Well done Cambridge though, they were brilliant. Rojo was the only player who looked up for it last night for us which is no surprise because he's one crazy bastard. 

 

Loved this from Januzaj though.

My neck is killing me from all that shaking my head as to how sh*t City have been today.

 

Still, we lost to our biggest bogey side, unlike Chelsea... that sh*ts embarrassing.

Cordoba turned out to be a much bigger challenge than expected. At least the three points were taken home and that's all that matters! :D

 

Ronaldo getting sent off was probably a blessing in disguise so Bale would save the day. Had Ronaldo taken the free kick, he'd probably send it over the bar but Bale got the penalty that secured the three points.
