Drama in Paris as PSG shock Barcelona
A draw on the scoreline, but for sure a victory for the crowd. This was a match compiled of world-class quality and breathtaking dramas. It might be a roller-coaster night for the French supporters. More importantly, their hopes of advancing further in the Champions League is still kept alive as French La Ligue leaders PSG shock Barcelona.
POLL: Which teams in the 2012/2013 Barclays Premier League will finish this season in the Top 4?
I think that we'd all agree that the 2012/2013 Barclays Premier League season has not been one to remember so far. After the sensational last day drama of last year when Manchester City grabbed the title trophy from under the noses of a stunned Manchester United, that act is a tough one to follow.
Who is the Best Goalkeeper of 2013?
As we get to the last 7-8 weeks of the 2012-2013, we can all agree that it has been an exciting one to date from many different aspects. However, I always feel that goalkeepers don't get the full credit they deserve for the contributions they make to what might be a winning season, or if your team is in a relegation fight, a consolidating season.
Manchester City stumble at Goodison Park against the 10-men Toffees
It has been a season David Moyes' side has lived up to the expectation to produce some spectacular football and also sweet results. Having been in the race for the Top 4 for most of the season, recent injury crisis and Liverpool's revival saw them momentarily in a season-low 7th position in the Barclay's Premier League.
Barcelona slump again in El Clasico
Two losses in a row have not been the headlines you would normally see in local Barcelona newspaper for the last three years. Losing in two consecutive El Clasicos had not happened since the 07/08 season as well. Today, Barcelona slump again in the El Clasico and officially entered a new low point after losing at the Bernabeu in an unusual early afternoon fixture.
Struggles Continue for Liverpool
It's a question everyone should be asking themselves after this far in the season. When will we see the Liverpool we are all used to seeing? Liverpool find themselves 8th in the league standings with 10 points separating them and 4th placed Chelsea. Liverpool have been an inconsistent club all year hovering around the tenth position and being unable to get a good string of wins together.
Gareth Bale steals the show with a double that lights up "The Lane"
Tonight I was lucky enough to attend the Europa League fixture at White Hart Lane between Tottenham Hotspur and Lyon, and witness three world class goals, two from Gareth Bale in a thrilling match between two of Europe's biggest sides.
Preview: Real Madrid v. Manchester United
This is the matchup everyone has been waiting for. Christiano Ronaldo against his old club Manchester United. United find themselves well ahead of the pack in the Premier League while Madrid are sitting in third position, 16 points behind leaders Barcelona, in a very disappointing campaign for them thus far.

Liverpool making steady progress as Roberto Mancini's Man City stumble again
I penned an article last week for Football.com where I suggested that Brendan Rodgers was at a crucial point in his season with three games against Top 8 opposition within a 15 day period. Following Liverpool's 2-2 draw today with Manchester City at The Etihad Stadium, it appears that maybe Roberto Mancini has a tougher job ahead of him than Rodgers.
