National League side Eastleigh Town FC's home win over Altrincham was a tonic,especially to see Coulson's magnificent strike, but Tuesday's draw at Halifax leaves them needing results to go their way to ensure a play-off place. Always nice to sit with the Directors and enjoy a good meal pre-match. There were a half dozen guest fans flew down from Aberdeen especially for this game. Shy retiring types all haha.
Serie A. Juve go marching on with 2 more wins this week to maintain their amazing run and 9 point lead. Napoli hit 6 against Bologna. A thoroughly rejuvenated Totti scores equaliser for Roma at Atalanta then nets last 2 goals in their 3-2 win over Torino. It looks like Carpi have the edge in the bottom 4 as Frosinone suffer a heavy defeat but it's still within their grasp to stay up
La Liga. Consecutive defeats by Real Sociadad and now Neville-less Valencia gives hope to Atletico and Real but a stunning 8-0 win at Deportivo ( Saurez 4) may have got them confidence back. Goal dif their saving grace at the moment.
Bundesliga. My faves Frankfurt's run of 3 defeats has dropped them into the bottom 2 and it looks like curtains for this very welcoming football club. Dortmund's draw at Schalke now leaves them 7 points adrift of Bayern as Pep nears a 4th title in a row before he heads to a rejuvenated Man City where Kevin de Bruyne is starting to show what an incredible player he is. City may have been in a much better position if not for his long injury where they just lost the plot for several games. Pep can build an amazing team around this marvel.
Ligue 1. PSG steam-roller all before them. Ibrahimovic scoring 5 goals in last 3 games. Who will score when he comes to Premier League. Well it's got to be Cavani, Matuidi, Moura and di Maria stepping up to the plate. Not too shabby !
Eredivisie. Ajax's draw with Utrecht allows Eindhoven to draw level on points but 6 adrift on goal difference. Tight.
Once again thanks to Tony B and apologies for another break through illness. It's coming down to the wire now so I will be on full throttle to keep you updated on the wonderful world of Wilkie-Tours as the next tour approaches ( Germany) the Premier League and the best of Europe and our local teams. Cheers..............
