UEFA Champions League-Semi-Finals Preview

April 19, 2011

With only 4 teams left in the Semi Finals of the Champions League, I’m going to break to break down both match ups. Schalke vs. Manchester United Schalke is the most surprising team left in this years draw.  They took out last years winners, Inter Milan out rather easily, by winning 7-3 on aggregate.  Manchester United, like Schalke had a rather easy time with Chelsea to make it to the…


a look back at the quarter finals of Champions League

April 14, 2011

February 22, 2011

With the first leg out of the way, I will be taking a look at the second leg, which will be played at the Camp Nou, on March 8th 2011. With the score at 2-1 for Arsenal after the first leg, fans can be happy that the Gunners got the win, but the back four looked very shaky, to say the least.  Koscielny and crew seemed to admire when Messi,…
