Seedorf: Lionel Messi is the Best Player, Ronaldo Second

AC Milan midfielder Clarence Seedorf believes Lione Messi is the best player in the World but Cristiano Ronaldo is nor far behind the Barca man.

Clarence Seedorf, one of he best midfielders of his era has ignited the battle between Messi and Ronaldo. But according to him Lionel Messi is currently the best player in football at the moment. But the Dutchman also believes that his counter part from Real Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo is not far behind the little Argentinian.

While speaking to Cope, Seedorf said that, “Lionel Messi is the best player in the world. He plays at a very high level and he is a joy to watch for everybody. However, Cristiano Ronaldo is not far behind him. He has already done a lot for Real Madrid and is very important.”

AC Milan meet Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League, Group H fixture at San Siro on 23 Nov 11, Wednesday. And the Dutchman made it clear that AC Milan are not the title contenders this season. He credit Real Madrid, Barcelona & Manchester United to clinch the title this season. He said, “It’s clear that we are not the favorites. I’d say that Barcelona, Real Madrid and Manchester United are the main candidates to win the Champions League.”

Okay, so banter specialists from both Barcelona and Real Madrid are going to have a field day over Seedorf’s comment. But hopefully AC Milan should be more than a match for Barcelona in the upcoming Champions League clash.

Harry Redknapp Believes Spurs Can Clinch the EPL Title

Tottenham Hotspur boss Harry Redknapp thinks they can win the league this season.

Spurs moved on to the 3rd position after defeating Aston Villa 2-0 yesterday. And Spurs boss Harry Redknapp, who was in the dug out for the first time after his minor heart surgery, believes is his side can keep up the momentum then they can win the Premier League this season. Adebayor scored a brace against Aston Villa to keep Spurs on the upward movement.

Spurs are nine points behind league leaders Manchester City but have played one game less and are only four points behind previous winners Manchester United. The win against Aston Villa was the eight win in nine league matches for Spurs. The only defeats to Spurs has come in the hand of both the Manchester sides at the start of the season.

But Harry Redknapp has got much bigger plans this season as he sees his Spurs side as winners this time around. Harry Redknapp said, ‘”The title is a possibility. It’s not impossible. When I came here I said I wanted to get in the Champions League. It’s not impossible for anyone. If you keep winning matches and believe in yourself you’ll do it.”

Spurs boss also believes that league leaders Manchester City will not be able to show their current form throughout the season and are bound to drop points at a certain point in the season. He said, “You saw them at QPR and QPR could have beaten them. Man City did very little and came away with a victory. I would not say that they are on a different planet to everyone else. They had a great result at Man United and here against us. They will not go through the season unbeaten. I don’t think they are that good. They are a very good team and worthy favorites, they are above Man United at the moment but I would not say that they are certainties to win the league.”

Pressure Mounts on Villas Boas, But Is It Too Early To Judge?

Andres Villas Boas have reportedly mentioned that his job is safe after the 1-2 loss against Liverpool at home. The Portuguese also mentioned that he has no pressure from his owners after 3 straight defeats. But any person who has been a fan of the English Premier League and have watch Chelsea over the years, would know that with an owner like Roman Abramovich, the amount of pressure on managers is batshit. And with results like these, the pressure starts to reach serious levels.

But Andres Villa Boas is a young and a furious coach. He is brave as was evident from his post match press conference after the loss against Liverpool. He did not deviate from any questions related to his job and the owner’s confidence in him, while accepting the results have been abysmal.

Managers with more experiences and better credentials have been showed the door before. It has happened too often in the past for Villas Boas to be comfortable with his job at Stamford Bridge. Carlo Ancelotti being the recent example.

But, the million dollar question, is it too early to judge Andres Villas Boas. Of course it is not, there is absolutely no doubt about it. People thinking otherwise should should stop to think all together. Yes, losses against Arsenal and Liverpool does hurt, but its not the end of the world for Chelsea.

The major problem for Chelsea have been that their has not been any inspiration from anyone in the field. John Terry looked like all the issues related to him in the past have taken its toll. Petr Cech and Frank Lampard have done absolutely nothing to improve the situation either. Ramires and Juan Mata seems the only players who puts any life into Chelsea’s game.

Andres Villas Boas can be criticized over the fact that his starting eleven still looks very messy. But can he be judged on that, no. The time to judge Villas Boas, with Chelsea’s judging characteristics, would be the end of the next season. By then he would have had a full fledged summer transfer window not like the half assed one he got this time around. Andres Villas Boas is 34, he is young and he will adapt.
