Good morning. No research today as I am travelling. My best bet of the day breezed in . Please , Yemen, can you play every day so I can oppose you and retire early? Everton’s stat was always going to end, and how! Neither team scored. It is worth paying attention to their stats. To be fair, though, Swans took a hammering and were very lucky indeed.

Inter beat Pescara with the minimum of fuss.

Today the premiership is ultra competitve with 2 huge matches. Arsenal v City and United v Liverpool.

Watch out for responses from Fiorentina and Juve who both lost at home on their post Xmas break come backs. They are both playing away today. Malaga and Barca should be a tasty affair. The Barca side were largely rested from a midweek Cup tussle with Cordoba. Malaga are having a fine season. Time for Barca to rub it in after Real only drew yesterday.


Ath Madrid are strong favourites this evening to beat Zaragoza at home.  Benfica v Porto is a cracker this evening and I would never oppose Porto regardless. There might be value in the lay of benfica

If you want an at -a-glance comparitor between the teams, go to At the welcome page is a list of matches on today. Under the column stats there is what looks like a small bar graph. Click on that next to the corresponding fixture and you’ll have an immediate head to head stats look at both sides.

Sorry I cannot do research today, and likely tomorrow. Normal service will be resumed when I return.
