Kyle Walker – An In-Depth Look at City’s New Defender

ManCity-Walker

Imagine how it must feel to be a record holder. A genuine, bona fide world record holder – without peer, unequalled, the top of the pile. And then imagine how it feels when that record is taken away just a short time later.

Fans of WWE will be familiar with this, thanks to the lesser-seen Championship Scramble match. Several participants in one match, whoever scored the latest fall is known as the “current champion”, and whoever scored the final fall in the overall match walks away with the title. Thing is, the “current champion” reigns are never acknowledged as title wins. Continue reading

Champions League Matchday 3 Preview

Champions League preview

This week marks the return of Europe’s Premier competition for clubs- The UEFA Champions League, and we take a look at this week’s games and what we can expect to see.

Tuesday sees matches take place from Group E to Group H with a whole host of intriguing games taking place. Tottenham face a tricky trip to Germany to face Bayer Leverkusen, if the Premier League team can get a win they could go on top of their group. Leverkusen are yet to win a game in the group however both of those ended in draws. The group is rounded off by CSKA Moscow taking on group leaders Monaco. The French team lost domestically at the weekend and need a real pick up, it what will be a tough away fixture in Russia.

In Group F we could be forgiven for thinking that a cricket score may take shape at the Santiago Bernabeu when Real Madrid take on Legia. The away side has conceded 8 goals in their opening two matches and are yet to score. Borussia Dortmund will travel to Sporting and if they lose to the Portuguese team they could slip from first to third in the group.

Leicester City have been superb in the competition which is more than can be said for their Premier League form. They will be at home against the impressive Copenhagen and will try and maintain their 100% home record. Club Brugge will take on Porto where both teams are in desperate need for all three points. A draw in this match will not help either team.

Lyon will host Italian champions Juventus which could decide who tops the group in a mouth watering clash. Whilst Dinamo Zagreb will look for their first points against Sevilla.

On Wednesday the big match is Pep Guardiola’s return to Barcelona when his Manchester City side take on the 2015 winners. Lionel Messi is back from injury for this one. Celtic and Borussia Monchengladbach could effectively take on each other for a Europa League finish- but at this stage both teams still have a chance of qualification.

French champions PSG are at home to Basel and are expected to get all three points whilst Arsenal hoping to top the group will take on Ludogorets where it would be seen as a shock if they did not win.

If Napoli can beat Besiktas they will have a 100% record and have one foot firmly in the knock out stages. Dynamo Kiev and Benfica are both on 1 point a piece and need a win. FK Rostov has conceded 7 goals and they face a team who scored 7 at the weekend in high flying Atletico Madrid who have also won their first two games in the group. Bayern Munich will take on PSV, and any points dropped here could see Bayern face a real fight to qualify from the group.
