I am suffering from ‘man flu’ this week so it will be an early night for me.
A tricky start to Aintree left me feeling I needed an early night rather than work through the Europe league this evening, but here are some thoughts for you. This competition has provided plenty of decent opportunities this year and both ties with the English teams involved are set up nicely. Given Fulham’s performances so far in the competition you really feel the wind is behind them and I would fancy playing in this game if it wasn’t for my thumping head. Both Liverpool and Wolfsburg are priced in a similar manner but you have to fancy Fulham to pull something out of tie against Wolfsburg.
Liverpool continue to be an enimga and really need to do well, but I just don’t feel confidence ouzing out of Anfield. Given Man Utd’s exit last night it would be nice to have at least one English team left in a European competition. I think Liverpools odds of winning the competition are a fair reflection on their performances so far but I am sure Benfica will fancy their chances. Good luck if you are playing, I’ll be in bed watching the masters golf.
