Champions League fever grips the airwaves after another impressive weekend in the Premiership!
Even Swansea in fine fettle and a fantastic win away at Valencia in the Europa League.
All eyes are on Chelski Boss Jose Mourinho as a slip up in the Premiership and then a defeat at home in the Champions League to as someone posted on-line " a bunch of Swiss Postmen " ( I love the Swiss, their chocolate, cuckoo-clocks and I'm sure their postal service is second to none : ) ...........the pressure in on for the Special One to deliver as he could be the first boss to be fired twice.....................another first for him.
Everton have joined the ranks of Belgium and could be the dark horses of football as some shrewd signings and loans really puts them in a different light.
So back to some TV stuff............ Fox Sports 1 and 2 were showing The Champions League games but if you recorded one and watched one live you would expect them NOT to show the live score for the other game............but they DID..................I blame Warren Barton : O )
The NBC Sports app for streaming live games is pretty awful and it can be likened to maybe watching a game on television in Eastern Europe in the 70's.
This weekend sees some great games and the showpiece being Man City vs Man Utd on Sunday and the Chelsea vs Fulham London Derby which I gather will be populated by the Chelsea Supporters Club at The Cat and Fiddle tomorrow....not too early so get down there and have some fine food and beverages too! : www.thecatandfiddle.com
