Football-This week in songs

Football-This week in songs


-visits Spurs for an early kick- off game tomorrow.

You'd be foolish not to worry about this Spurs side. They've bought very well and are a better side since Bale's departure.

Flavour says " Baby, I dey catch cold, Oyi natumo"

But we've mostly had the upper hand in recent times and there's no reason for this to change if Mourinho gets the tactics and selection right tomorrow.

Certainly, Spurs wouldn't be playing with 10 men behind the ball. This should free up space for our creative players and our misfiring strikers- something they haven't enjoyed all season

Man City

I wouldn't want to be playing Man City right now- so I do not envy Villa's task tomorrow. Illbliss tells Villa: you'd be blown away! '' U go wound o!"

They have so many in-form players; so many players that can really hurt you ( and I'm not talking about their intimidating physique). Jovetic's brace in midweek further emphasises the depth in this squad.

Micah Richard is also back after his injury lay-off.

D'banj says they are hot ''Mo gbono feli feli"

Man Utd

How good was Chicharito's goal in midweek? Pretty good! Everybody was blaming Jose Enrique for losing his marker but Chicarito's movement was too good. He tricked his marker by moving backward then ran forward and left him for dead as the cross came in.

Great fox in the box play. I don't know why he doesn't play often in this team. Dr Dre says that lad is " Nuthin' but a G Thing"

They welcome West Brom tomorrow


Steven Gerrard having appeared to have reached the stage in his career where going all out for 90 minutes even once a week is a difficult ask.

Some Liverpool fans say: we love him. Fat Joe says " What's luv got to do with it"

Lucas is in the Brazilian team picture again. Some would say Liverpool punched above their weight in the first month of the season-hence their current position is just about right. They visit Sunderland in 2 days


Even the youths have imbibed this winning mentality earlier on in the season- as evidenced at West Brom midweek. Some of us still think a lack of depth will be their Achilles Heel though. Their fans would have none of it. Dagrin says they've got a big mouth like "Pon Pon Pon" .

In other news:

Arsenal announced yesterday that the club has reduced ticket prices for traveling fans by the rather slim margin of £2.50 per game . I don't know how much this would cheer their fans up. But, hey, they've got the panacea- Ozil!! Arsenal visits Swansea tomorrow

Real Madrid

Ancelotti's team is struggling to play their football when the game is not comfortable from the start.

4-4-2 is not working - particularly away from home. The midfielders have too much ground to cover between the lines . Some think 4-2-3-1 is the answer.

Some also feel either of Carvajal or Marcelo should be starting at FB. These are the two fullbacks that can take responsibility in the attacking end. Arbeloa and Coentrao are safe but offer little threat going forward.

Some fans like Ginuwine say: Trust Ancelotti cos he's the 'same Ol' G'

Real welcomes Athletico Madrid tomorrow

Barcelona FC

-are scoring goals for fun

Following the goals scored by Sergio Busquets and Marc Bartra midfield, no fewer than 11 different players have now scored for FCB in 9 official matches this season.

Messi-Neymar combo seem to be working but the talking point this week as to be Messi's tantrum-throwing following late substitution.

Wizkid says even "Sisi Nene" would be envious of such a hissy fit

Barca visits Almeria tomorrow
