As for the Champs League, my combination of Inter fanhood and extreme pessimism leads to the following prediction for the next round.

Inter - Milan
Chelsea - Bayern
Juventus - Lyon
PSV - Liverpool

Probably not as once a week is probably enough for now.. will see how good everyone is at submitting their predictions on a weekly basis before we look to expand it into more than once a week....

Yeah, that's good then. I just got confused cos I kept seeing the Euro fixtures popping up on here!


Anyway - in other news, Fergie is staying on for at least another year. He reckons we've got the nucleus of another world class team right now, with some of the great youngsters we have at the moment. He's praising Ronaldo highly, which could prove fatal. Hope it doesnt go to the lads head. He pisses me off now and then with his selfishness on the pitch. And his reluctance to get up and carry on with the game when he's sat on his knees thinking he's been fouled. That annoys the fuck out of me.
BUT - he shows moments of brilliants sometimes too. H e got a great goal last weekend against Southampton. Had to compose himself and juggle from his left to his right foot, then shoot. And he did it bloody well.
So, hopefully, these rumours of him wanting a bigger contract and being unhappy at the club, will turn out to be just that. And Fergie can continue with developing him as a player.

So my predictions for Chelsea - Bayern and the Milan derby were spot on!

I guess as a die-hard Inter fan it's time for me to start preparing for the worst, I don't give my team a chance against Milan, who i really think are the best team left. Damn that Paolo Maldini!

I think Juve represents the end of the road for Liverpool, while Bayern will provide stiff opposition to Chelsea but im sure the blues will triumph in the end.

Liverpool have no chance bless em'! If they'd got Lyon, then maybe...but anyone else - they really can't progress. I still cant believe they've actually got as far as they have! But fair play to them!
Chelsea might struggle in the 2nd leg, away from home. But it all depends on how the home match goes. And they'll probably do ok with that.
I can see them going all the way to the final - meeting Milan, and losing.

Your from a town called Capers? Isn't that a very small type of fish? Good with feta cheese/olives etc...

I'm a little disappointed to be honest would have been nice to have had one of the bigger teams. Still we should get through and then the semi looks fascinating regardless of who it is.
