2 changes.1 big and 1 small. In Sandeman-land,  Karabukspor finally relented and lost to St.Etienne. Tough one ahead for them though as they go the capital to play to PSG. In Helmond Cup,  Middlesbrough brought the title back to the Championship. They should be safe keeping that this weekend against Reading.

CL draw and perceived strengths of groups had an effect on some teams’ forward looking metrics(such as odds to win CL). Therefore some(especially Man. City and Roma) got punished while helping others such as Chelsea and Benfica. Leverkusen which replaced Zenit in the rankings is playing a very exciting style of football but can they keep that up all season long?

Don’ look ahead people, stupid International break is upon us next weekend. I hate those. But this weekend there are some good games:


08/30/14- Sat.


12:30pm Everton vs Chelsea: 84

12:30pm Schalke 04 vs Bayern München: 84


Get that remote.

8:30am Tottenham Hotspur vs Liverpool: 82


If you are bored in the afternoon catch Barcelona and RM games as they scored 74 and are highly watchable.
