It takes the singles into a loss for the first time this season whilst the profit from week one's accumulator win is quickly being eroded. Nevertheless, it's onwards and upwards this week and after the FA Cup last weekend, we have a full …

Falling from grace; what's happened to Juve, Barca and Chelsea? One of the greatest challenges in the modern game is how to re-energise a team each season to ensure they consistently win trophies. Some teams have done this very well, for example Bayern Munich's stranglehold on the Bundesliga and in recent years Manchester United's dominance in the Premier League. Alex Ferguson talked about this topic in a recent documentary on the …

They done well with a draw at home against Porto, who I thought would of been a win for the Portuguese side, which nearly came off, with Kiev scoring in the last minute of normal time, to make it 2-2. This is their first meeting with Chelsea …
