Who DOESN'T have a long dry spell in the Premiership?

The country's new golden boy has only scored 7 goals in a total of 48 Premiership apperances!
He's a provider as well though, something which Owen is not nearly as good at.

Rooney is a breath of fresh air, a new young Shearer style striker, not afraid to use his strength and have a go at people with the ball.

It's so good to new an old fashioned striker who can score and provide with equal aplomb.

Oh well dreadful night again for Celtic away from home, all that's left is a UEFA cup spot and that'll be thoroughly difficult. Milan in charge of the group after their win.
Another win from Chelsea, who needs a striker when they've got John Terry, dissapppointing from Arsenal letting the lead slip twice but still a point and 2 home wins will see them through. Impressive win from Inter at the Mestalla. Liverpool really should have won against Depor, played well in what wasn't a bore draw, should have won by 3.

Great win for Liverpool especially after losing Alonso at the last minute. Handy win for Man Utd, Chelsea just keep winning in the champions league and are really looking the best of the English teams to go all the way. Arsenal just seem to be spluttering their way through and are looking likely to qualify in second place which will certainly make their last 16 tie very tasty. Celtic finally get off the mark but Milan couldn't get the win that'd give them a realistic chance of qualifying.

Superb result for Liverpool I'm absolutely delighted with that win.

It's in our own hands now.

The 4-1 scoreline at Old Trafford was a joke - at 2-0 Prague were hammering at United's door and should have scored at least twice before they did.

Well and good but his fourth goal was a touch offside.
Didn't make much difference by then though.

Incompetent officiating always makes a difference.

Another way of looking at it is that that decision has given Van Nistelrooy a share of the individual scoring record in a CL match.

None of them from outside the 18 yard box...........................................

Don't get me wrong by the way, Van Nistelrooy is a superb player.

But you're quite right, comparisons to Van Basten are well off the mark, Van Basten is one of the best players that has graced this planet.

I don't recall Van Basten being such a cheating ******* either.

Precisely.

Although he has cut the diving out a lot since his first season Van Nistelrooy is still a deplorable individual imo.

Van Basten was and is a true great.

That shows a true predators instict though. It's like moaning at Beckham because he hardly ever scores from open play.

He IS a true predator. But if you stop United getting crosses into the box he WILL NOT score!

i dont know why people call him a cheat.
specially the gunners coach mr asshole ******.
i dont even know why he was suspened, soccer players are really a bunch of poofs.
dont get me wrong, i enjoy the sport. but i really get sick of watching players going off on a stretcher in agony then 5 mins later they run back on and the crowd is cheering them.
anyway...
enough of the ranting...

match day 5 is upon us so i thought id ask the question....
from what youve seen so far, who do you think will win the CL?
id like to say Man Utd. but after watching 'El Clasico' on the weekend id have to say Barca. they were pretty impresive.
they have some brilliant attacking players which can open up any defence.
Eto, Larson, Ronaldihnio, Van Bronkhurst & Deco.
they were pretty impressive.
if im not mistaken henrik larson has an interesting match up in celtic vs barca.
