Match Highlights – Real Madrid vs Bayern Munich

Posted on 23 Apr, 2014, by in Soccer

A nice win for Real Madrid (1-0) but not one that makes them feel too safe heading into the second leg against Bayern Munich. The Germans and defending champions, as expected, were the better team and slightly more dangerous for most of the match, but found it hard to create good chances until way too late in the match.

Posted on 23 Apr, 2014, by in Soccer

One of the constants this season was Manchester United and David Moyes messing up in big matches, followed by hilarious memes and jokes at his expense.

The sacking of David Moyes and the 24 hours that follow raise an interesting question: Is Manchester United truly a big club or just one that seemed that way with Alex Ferguson in charge, because you wouldn’t expect Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola to be so keen on turning that speculative interest down if it was truly the dream job for them.

Chelsea FC – Jose Mourinho Doesn’t & Shouldn’t Care About “Beautiful” Football

Posted on 23 Apr, 2014, by in Soccer

No one will sack Jose Mourinho for winning without style, class or dignity before, during and after matches.

Posted on 23 Apr, 2014, by in Soccer

It’s hard to tell whether or not Real Madrid are doing some clever misdirection with all this talk about Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale being injured. For Bayern Munich it’s less about the names on the pitch, but their ability to bring back the momentum they seemed to have lost going into the first leg of the Champions League semifinal. More

As expected, the Chelsea visit to Atletico Madrid produced a dull affair in the first leg of the Champions League semifinal. Hardly any chances on both sides, a 0-0 draw, with the most interesting moments coming when Petr Cech and John Terry were forced out with injuries, as Jose Mourinho was probably pleased with what he saw on the pitch.

Posted on 22 Apr, 2014, by in Soccer

The David Moyes era at Manchester United was shortened from a potential six years to less than a full season, and one of the more glaring aspects of his failures on and off the pitch had to do with his inability to look credible, reliable or stir any sense of confidence or hope among players and fans with his performances in front of the media.

Champions League – Atletico Madrid vs Chelsea Predictions

Posted on 22 Apr, 2014, by in Soccer

Despite the similarities, the Champions League semifinal clash between Atletico Madrid and Chelsea isn’t one between two twins playing in different leagues, but of two clubs with a different agenda and way of getting things done, and two managers in Jose Mourinho and Diego Simeone who seem to be very much in control of what’s happening on the pitch.
