The Drunk’s ‘Special’ Picks


After another week of winners takes my overall record to seven and two, I hope that everyone knows by now that The Drunk is no fluke. In fact, I am the Special One of picks. And since this is the first leg of the knockout stage of the Champions League, I hope that those of you not on the bandwagon get over yourselves and realize I’m putting money in your pocket. I am a one man bailout. Now excuse me while I look for a black coat and scarf to complete my Special ensemble.

Let’s just get it out of the way–Atlético Madrid vs. FC Porto. You don’t care, I don’t care. Neither one is winning this competition. But there will be some talent on the pitch and neither plays great defense, so there should at least be some goals.
The pick: The Other Madrid 2 – Portuguese Punters 1

In the easiest match to pick, Barcelona is going to beat Lyon. Both are top of their respective leagues by a good margin and both have been resting players. The difference is that one squad is among the best in the world, while the other is the best in France. And Barca shouldn’t be too happy after losing to their bottom-feeding rivals Espanyol this weekend.
The pick: Pep’s Powerhouse 3 – The Best Team in France (woo-hoo) 0

Arsenal hosts Roma in a battle of teams whose seasons haven’t gone as planned. And just like their seasons, this game is a case of good news/bad news. For the Gunners, the good news is that they’re unbeaten in their last 25 European home games; the bad news is that all of their good players are injured. Totti returns for i Giallorossi, which is always good news for Roma, the bad is that they have lost their last five visits to England.
The pick: Nil, nil to the Arsenal

In case you been in a coma and haven’t noticed, Inter Milan is hosting Manchester United. Every news media outlet has played and replayed every quote, stat and nugget of ‘useful’ expert analysis so many times that I don’t have to bore you with them. Look, it’s really the only game anyone is going to really watch today.
The pick:  Men from Manchester 1 – The Milan Team Beckham Doesn’t Play For 0
