Champions League: Mitroglou and Jonas will carry Benfica

Mitroglou and Jonas are two scary players for teams to deal with because of the great chemistry they have together and their ability to score goals. The Benfica backline is very experienced having been here before, but there is also new blood on this team that will need to prove they are ready to play on the big stage. Fejsa has established himself as one of the best, if not…

Champions League: No Ibra, no problem?

PSG has lost talisman Ibrahimovic to Manchester United, but even with his departure they possess a very talented team. Cavani is still there-proven goal scorer and they have added Ben Arfa, a player who was reborn last year for Nice. If PSG can defend in the group stage, they should have no problem progressing to the next stage. The real question will be if they finish first or second.  …

New year, same result

Red Star is once again left without European competition after being bounced 4-1 on aggregate from Italian side Sassuolo. It has been nine long years since the Serbian giants have made any European competition, which is way too long for a team that once in the early 90s ruled European-even world-football.   Sassuolo was without a doubt the better team in the two ties. The Italian side has been playing…

The best of Summer 16

  With the BPL kicking off today (no pun intended), and other leagues getting closer and closer to kick-off, it only makes sense to look at a number of teams that have made big changes to their squads this summer.   Here are some teams that I have highlighted   Bayern Munich Mats Hummels-Borussia Dortmund Renato Sanches-Benfica -They did not do too much this summer, but there was no real…

Put some respek on their name!

  One thing we can usually count on in the playoffs is that the best players in the league will come out and perform to the best of their abilities. With that being said, we also have the guys who show up out of nowhere to help their team do well when it matters the most.   Here are some players who impressed me this post-season.   Bismack Biyombo, Toronto…

2016 NBA Mock Draft

Ah, it is finally here, the 2016 version of the NBA draft. In this year’s draft, we could potentially see quite a few trades, if you believe all the rumours out there currently. Philadelphia is looking for another pick in the top eight, Toronto willing to deal nine and Phoenix looking to possibly trade Bledsoe.   Tomorrow should be a crazy three or four hours of basketball tv!   1….

Euro 2016, Group F: The group of life?

  Austria is back at the Euros for the first time since 2008, after finishing in their qualification group ahead for Russia and Sweden, respectively. Janko led the Austrians with seven goals and he showed that the team can still lean on him. The Austrians also have a very good midfield that consists of Arnautovic and Alaba. Junuzovic also had a great season with Werder Bremen, so look for him…

Euro 2016, Group E: How will Belgium fair without Kompany?

  Not having Kompany at the Euros will be a big blow for Belgium, but they do have players who should be able to step in and still make a difference. Belgium finished first in their qualifying group just ahead of Wales by two points. Four players had three or more goals for Belgium in qualifying, which shows you the quality the team has going forward. Lukaku had zero goals…

Euro 2016, Group D: Can Alvaro Morata carry the load up front?

  The Czech’s are making their sixth straight appearance at the Euros, which is a great accomplishment for a country most would think is not a footballing nation. After all these years, Cech and Rosicky are still there for the national team, each with over 100 appearances. With that being said, Rosicky is 35 years old and cannot carry this Czech team by himself any longer. The team had 11…
