    Besiktas should be a tough trip, hope we can get the 3 points.

    My sister has just been offered a ticket to the Chelsea game as part of some corporate thing, she said she weren't sure who they were playing :rolleyes:

    I think I'm gonna watch Inter v Barca whilst listening to Blackpool v Newcastle.

    I doubt I'll be able to tell the two apart as all four teams play similar football.

    I think Newcastle might rest a couple of players for this, I can see LuaLua coming in and Ranger being dropped.

    Predicting a 1-2 win.

    Still awaiting our first win of the season, have a chance of getting it against Leicester, just need the rub of the green, didn't have it against QPR so its our time :)

    Should be a routine win in Turkey but then again Besiktas are more than capable of pulling off a game raising performance.

    I would personally start Owen and Rooney and let them give the defence some hassle, see how it holds up. Nani and Valencia on the wings.

    With Drogba out for the first 3 games Chelsea might struggle in their first two home games (Porto & AM) as when we've had teams cram their defence against us (Hull, Fulham and Stoke) he's been the only player who really looks like being capable to create something.

    Turns out Ketsbaia has been sacked by Olympiakos, so there goes my CL prediction. :D

    Hope we can get a result tonight against Middlesboring.

    Really looking forward to tonight to be honest, we looked very average against Forest, so we need an improved performance and some form going in to the biggest game in the country this Friday.

    Hope United can win tonight as well. Hope it's not wet and cold in Sheffield tonight :(

    Wondering which match to watch. On one side I want to see how UTD do against a fairly rough Turkish side, but on the other side I so want to watch Real Madrid and all the new stars they've bought... tough decision. :(

    Blimey didn't realise Nihat had moved to Besiktas, glad he's only fit enough for the bench.

    Yeah he's a great player, they've got a good Brazilian that you lot should watch out for too. Ah, just hearing Martin Tyler say the guy I was on about has gone home, walked out of the squad because he wasn't in the starting 11. lol! :p
