We know FIFA is rigged but I really hate these draws. We know FIFA is helping Chelsea since they know curtuois can't play. Guess my Final prediction won't be a reality of Bayer.Vs Real. FIFA should of kept them apart.
Anyways both matches will be great.


COURTOIS is able to play..it's up to Madrid whether they want to play him or not.

We know they are not gonna pay a big fee just for those 2 games.
I'm sure their back up goalie is pretty good. La liga is looking very good. 2 in the semis for both Europa, champs league.

I thought UEFA said Real WOULD NOT have to pay for him to play. Although I don't remeber where i read that.

Glad their good to go. I think athletico should buy him off completely. The guy is a stud. Idk what their waiting for. In the other leg looks like Cristiano is doubtful. If he doesn't play put Bayern in the final. If he does I'm going with a 49.9 chance Real wins and 50.1 chance for Bayern. Is gonna be a hell of a series.
For Chelsea and athletico I'm going 55% to 45% in Favor of athletico Madrid. I had it 50/50 but now that courtois is playing I'm favoring them.

Cech left the first half about 20 min in. Chelsea already without Hazard & Eto'o. Looks like they are clearly hoping for a 0-0 draw and then be healthy enough to go for the win at home.

Cech dislocated shoulder. Schwarzer to start at Anfield & probably in CL return leg.

Not really. On Jan 1st they were out of top 4. Then they had there easy part of the schedule while Everton and Spurs do not. I'll stick with my same thought process as before. Come April 1st ish they will be back down to 5th. Liverpool has made great strides and I love Rodgers as a coach. I love how he's not afraid to throw young talented players into the fire instead of "making them earn it" I just dont think they have the horses to stay there. If Suarez and/or Sturridge ever hit a little drop in form or pick up a slight knock they wont be able to stay up there. I'll stick with Europa League berth for them and fighting for 1-2 next year. They are definitely on the upswing I just think next year is there year.


Original post from MSantoineI meant May 1st yes. And I hope your right as like I stated I like what BR has done. I just dont think they'll hold up. I cant see any scenario where Chelsea, Arsenal, and City dont qualify so that leaves oen spot for United, Liverpool, Evertion, and Spurs (yes Im including United as they have the talent on paper to win 7-8 in a row so although unexpected I wouldnt be shocked to see it happen) Its going to be the best finish to an EPL season in awhile as you'll have battles for 1st, 4th, and relegation. Not too often all three are so hotly contested.

Don't be surprised if Liverpool is battling for the league.....though I guess you would be because you don't even think they will finish inside the top 4.


Don't want to tell you I told you so but..............

The way I see it, I think AM will have to pay, or other arrangements will be made if Chelsea buy Costa. Chelsea does not have to decide this now...they can take AM to the Court of Arbitration for Sport for failure to live up to their contract. If UEFA penalize Chelsea for doing this, they will take UEFA to the CAS because by agreeing to give Courtois clearance to play for AM in the CL they themselves have agreed all terms of the loan to be legal and binding.

UEFA will look foolish if they go after Chelsea because not 1 year previous they said the exact opposite when the same situation came up when Celtic loaned a player to Elfsborg (or something like that).

This is a beatdown. Just a beatdown. That last goal was ridiculous. Fantastic counter attack

Two things I learned that relate to Group G.

1) CR7 might just tear us to shreds.
2) Pepe is still a world-class center back. He proved it over both legs. We will struggle to break that back line.

Wrapping up the Bundesliga title 2 months early has hurt Bayern Munich. They literally could not match Real Madrids intensity.
