ARSENAL and Chelsea should pip Spurs to the Champions League places for next season, say surfers of this site.
A few days ago, Goaltastic posted a poll to ask which of the three sides currently contesting the two Champions League berths alongside Manchester United and Manchester City should miss out.
And after a huge number of votes in just a couple of days, an overwhelming majority (61.98 per cent) feel that Tottenham should finish fifth, rather than Arsenal (18.23 per cent) and Chelsea (19.79 per cent).
Of course, the reality of the situation may not match the results of the poll – but whatever happens it should be an exciting run in this season.
CHELSEA, Arsenal and Spurs are currently locked in one of the closest races in Premier League history.
Sadly for the trio, it’s not the title at stake, but to secure Champions League football.
Anyone who says that Germany has now eclipsed England and Spain as the top league on the continent should cast an eye at the strength of the squads vying for third and fourth places – with World Class talents like Juan Mata, Theo Walcott, Gareth Bale, Eden Hazard, Santi Cazorla, Jermain Defoe and more facing off for the right to represent England over the next few weeks.
And sadly, one of these squads – all of which could arguably challenge for the European crown next season – will miss out.
It’s a hard one to call – but you can vote for who you think should miss out with out vote below…
TWO South African teams took each other on in a pre-season friendly last season – with fans signalling which players they wanted to see via text.
Eleven million votes were cast for the 22 players chosen in the starting lineup.
The SMS-controlled sides Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs then played out a 0-0 draw in their home town of Soweto, before a penalty shootout saw the Pirates plundering a win – with Khune, the player who polled the most votes, mssing the crucial spot kick!
WING wonder Andy Najar – born in Honduras and raised in the US since age 13 – has put a tug o’ war over his international future to the vote on Twitter.
The 17-year-old DC United starlet – named MLS 2010 Rookie of the year – has been on stunning form in the American league, and the question of who to represent at international level has reared its head.
In an attempt to settle the dispute, Najar put the question out to the 1,291 people who follow his @andynajar14 account on the microblogging website.
He later tweeted, tongue-in-cheek: “It’s a tie, 1,700,000 votes for usa and 1,700,000 honduras!”
He also added that Mars had gained one vote.
IT TURNS out England fans actually love Ashley Cole – who knew?
Despite being regularly booed in home games and constantly appearing as villain in the tabloids’ pantomimes, the Chelsea defender is in contention to be voted as the Three Lions’ player of the year.
At present the 30-year-old is only narrowly trailing Steven Gerrard in the FA’s online poll, decided by England supporters.
He’s the man you all love to hate.
THE new mascots for next year’s Euro tournament in Poland and Ukraine have been unveiled, and now it’s up to the public to choose their names.
Sadly, it’s not quite a free reign to choose suitable names though for the Jedward-on-acid couple – you can vote between Slavek and Slavko, Siemko and Strimmo, or Klemek and Ladko.
Where’s a World Cup Willie when you need it?
Legendary Ukrainian striker Andrei Shevchenko said: “I am sure children will like them.
“I have seen that the mascots can play good football too and that is a good sign for the tournament.”
