Claudio Ranieri won’t last at Inter, Napoli have us thinking, Juventus need to stop drawing matches, the FA Cup gets ready for upsets and Arsenal losing, Jeremy Lin will continue thriving without Carmelo Anthony, Roger Federer will win his first 2012 title and Vitali Klitschko will defend his WBC Heavyweight title against Dereck Chisora.
Inter got crushed at home by Bologna, with two goals for the ageless Marco Di Vaio. Just wondering about Inter – given up on the league completely? Trying to get Claudio Ranieri fired?
Napoli beat Fiorentina 3-0 in the second Friday night match with Cavani grabbing a brace. On one hand, that means that they’re heading into their Chelsea UCL clash in great form. But there’s no such thing as great form for Napoli. Good news for AVB?
Still with Italy. Juventus MUST beat Catania. In 8 days its AC Milan, and Juve need to head into the San Siro with an advantage.
A few days after getting dropped by AC Milan in the Champions League, I’m betting on Arsenal, this time without Thierry Henry, to get knocked out by Sunderland in the FA Cup. Arsene Wenger’s clock is ticking, and there’s no one to save him.
On Sunday, three, on paper, very easy matches to predict. Tottenham playing Stevenage, Stoke playing Crawley town and Liverpool host Brighton. I’m pretty sure not all three EPL teams win.
The biggest question in the NBA right now is how ‘Melo will mesh with Jeremy Lin. We’re going to have to wait, because Anthony isn’t coming back just yet, which is probably good news for the hottest team in the NBA with the most over hyped player since… I can’t remember.
Roger Federer hasn’t been looking good at Rotterdam, I find it hard to believe he won’t win it. It won’t help him win Grand Slam titles in 2012 as well, as his career clock keeps winding down.
Vitali Klitschko, unfortunately, will defend his title for the 8th consecutive time, in Germany, against Dereck Chisora. Heavyweight boxing won’t get interesting or remotely competitive until the two Ukrainian brothers retire.
