Ok now don’t start making those faces, when you read the word review, I know that the Appraisal 🙂 are round the corner but this blog was created for some purpose (about which I myself have no clue) & the purpose is not Appraisal review for sure. Now the review is not any book that I have read recently, the book review department is handled by mattu and she is damn good @ it. So now wht is this post about???
This post is a small review on the English Premier League (EPL) teams that have managed to qualify for the UEFA Championship League Cup. Major teams from EPL namely Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool & ManU have qualified for the Cup. This is happening for the first time since I started watching Football that so many teams from EPL have qualified for the Cup. Majority of the time teams from Italian League, Spanish la liga, Bundesliga are the people who rule roost @ UEFA. Now let me start with the (so-called) review.
1. Chelsea: Hmmm …… This happens to be my very favorite team. But lately they have been playing poorly. The fire to win is lacking in them. In their last match against Arsenal, they looked like 11 men playing against one Arsenal team. They need to get their rhythm back, if they want to bring the gold home for the very first time. They have enough talent in-house to make it to the top.
HAIL CHELSEA!!! 😀
2. Arsenal: Last year’s finalist. This team is the one to watch out for, they are the underdogs. Unlike Chelsea/Liverpool/ManU they don’t have stars in their line-up expect for Henry, but they do have a bunch of talented young fellows in their gang. With a manager like Wenger the boys can give the toughest team a run for their money.
3. Liverpool: This has been a bad year for former UEFA Champions; they are going through a bad phase in EPL too. They have good players just like Chelsea, but the chemistry is missing, they need to gel with each other, coz there are many foreign players in their team. Steven Gerrard also needs to get back in form, coz he’s their whole n soul.
4. ManU: (I hate myself for saying this) ManU is the one of the strongest team in the whole Championship & if they keep playing the way they are now, nobody can stop them. This season they are @ top of their form. Everything is in place for them; all they need is to play according to the plan.

This post is for all those who believe that Shevechenko is 30 million pound waste. Shevi is slowly coming out of his shell and proving to the world that he is a match winner. Read on guys….
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho believes Andriy Shevchenko can establish himself as the most prolific striker in the history of European football.
Shevchenko scored his first European goal for Chelsea as his side clinched top spot in Champions League Group A with a 2-0 win against Levski Sofia at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday.
The Ukrainian forward has endured a miserable time since his club record 30 million pounds move from AC Milan in pre-season, but his clinical finish against the Bulgarians was just reward for the kind of dynamic display that he has lacked for much of the campaign.
Shevchenko has now scored 57 goals in European football and Mourinho is convinced he can get to the top of the list before he retires.
“I am happy with Sheva. I think he has gone ahead of Eusebio in the top scorers in the history of European football and he is just behind Gerd Muller,” Mourinho said.

Yesterday was a crucial day for all the Barca fans, it was a do/die situation for their team. They(the fans) can now sit back and relax coz their team has been successful in qualifying for the KnockOut Stage. For more details read below:
Barcelona and AS Roma made their own entries into the history books of the Champions League on Tuesday, although it was the defending champions who penned the most interesting reading.
Frank Rijkaard’s Spanish giants calmed the nerves of their anxious fans with a 2-0 victory over Werder Bremen at the Nou Camp which secured entry to the last 16 after a second place finish in Group A behind winners Chelsea.
Roma, missing talismanic skipper Francesco Totti, beat Group D winners Valencia 1-0 at home to finish second in their group and enter the knockout phase for the first time in its current format.
However Barcelona’s win, for Champions League posterity, had a little more significance: it meant they avoided becoming the first defending champions to exit the competition at the group stages.
