Jose Mourinho to Real Madrid anyone?

The French to shine in Champions League

Finally the Champions League is back, Tuesdays games should see routine wins for Chelsea, Man Utd and Real Madrid. It will be interesting to see how Real Madrid cope this season with all the pressure and media hype around them following their summer spending spree, I think they could take a while until they click into gear.

Looking closer at the fixtures and I fancy Marseille (at home) to edge out AC Milan in the first round of matches at 6/4. AC Milan havent looked great so far this season and will struggle to replace Kaka, also Gattuso is injured and he will be a big miss in centre of the park for Milan. Marseille will sense they can win this game and the first goal is crucial.

Over in Turin Juventus host French Champions Bordeaux, the vistors can be backed at 6/1 and could be worth a small bet. Bordeaux have made a flying start in the french league and Juventus could slip up here. Midfield playmakers Del Piero and Diego are missing for Tuesdays game, OK Juve have made a good start domestically but I still think Bordeaux are over priced here.

Back in the US and Del Porto stunned reigning champion Federer to win the US Open in 5 sets!! I was shocked to say the least, mens tennis is really strong at the moment with any 5 players capable of winning grand slams (Federer, Murray, Del Potro, Nadal, Djokovic).

No bets for me still, but beware of the french!


  1. hi there mate nice blog always good to see a new blog appear, especially one that concentrates mainly on football as opposed to horse racing!

    i have a similar blog to yours which i started at the beginning if this season, however i use smaller bets on lots of different football markets, and trade out once i am in a profitbale position, with an aim to make 30-40% a month.

    you have some interesting opinions on the games tonight, and your PL predictions seemed to go pretty well this weekend! how come you are not betting yet?

    anyway check out my blog if you have the time, and ill be reading here for tips on a regular basis, good luck mate!

  2. hi,

    thanks for the comment! I have a taken a quick a look at your blog and it looks great, will take a closer look tonight. I tried trading a while ago but I ended up overtrading or blowing my profits on a stupid trade!

    I recently went on "tilt" and squandered alot so im trying to be more visable and hoping this blog gets me back on the right road and get some confidence and DISCIPLINE back!

    I will be sure to follow your blog, good luck!
