Well, the build up to Champions League heaven has begun!!  Tomorrow night we have the expected borefest between Chelsea and Liverpool, two of the most dsyfunctionial teams in world football, off the pitch at least.  Then on Wednesday the equally disfunctional Barcelona take on Manchester United.  Barcelona have to be a prime example of a club just plummeting from grace.  Two years ago they were the kings of Europe and Spain and Frank Rijkaard could do no wrong.  Now they have turned into the very thing that Frank Rijkaard had strove to prevent them from coming.  Galacticos!!

Just like their bitter rivals Real Madrid were, Barcelona have become a collection of individuals rather than a team.  It appears that Ronaldinho is on his way out and considered past it, at 28!  Deco, and Ronaldinho, are currently better know for their partying lifestyle rather than their football.

I’m not expecting much from Liverpool v Chelsea, but hopefully Barcelona v United will give us something to cheer about.  Depressed thinking about the possibility of boring ‘pool or Chelski winning the tournament!!
