Champions League: Bale, Benz & Ronaldo will be too much

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.

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…

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…
