mourinho returns

the most interesting game of the season.inter take a 2-1 lead into the second leg at Stamford Bridge.
with mourinho at the helm,inter are as much a superstar side as ac milan,who were put out by man u.
the inter of ronaldo and vieri did not achieve much in europe in the last decade.
under mourinho,they face the hurdle of chelsea at home.
chelsea vs barcelona was the highlight of the champions league at the beginning of the millennium,when gianfranco zola used to be the star.
today,if mourinho manages to extend his unbeaten record at stamford bridge,over his three seasons,inter will be favourites for the title.

sylvinho

i saw highlights of the fa cup and saw a long range strike by sylvinho.
he s been around for a long while and has been performing till date.
the barcelona stint was highly rewarding for the long-timer.

mourinho

mourinhos got the class and the confidence to go with it.
he has already possibly got some team in mind or he is playing some mindgames with the inter management.
http://www.espnstar.com/football/premier-league/news/detail/item371839/Mourinho:-I%27ll-be-back-one-day!/

intriguing matchup

this match will be a tight one,villa disappointed with the scoreline against arsenal,as i did not get to see the match,i cannot know about their playing.
this one is tough for benitez and will be an engrossing match with the way the managers approach it.
villa will possibly go for an attacking game.
liverpool seem to be in need of some south american flair or atleast some young striker to supplement torres.

the other match between bolton and hull will also be a good one,18th and 19th in the league.
bolton are a vastly reduced side from the days of sam allardyce and hull have some good players.

the predictions from mark lawrenson.
http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/football/8431877.stm

i think it will be either 3-3 or 0-0 for villa v liverpool.
bolton should make it 2-1.
