The ducks dispatch the red hot Flames to enter into the play-offs!

Photo by Bridget SamuelsOn Sunday night the Ducks discovered a different DNA coursing through their veins. They not just managed to surprise their rivals but their fans too. The last game which they featured against the Flames was a do or die encounter for them. But instead of allowing the opposition to dictate terms, they played their hearts out and displayed a killer instinct, the likes of which was not seen in the earlier games. Rather than allowing a fluky goal which would have virtually sent them packing, the Ducks took matters into their own initiative and displayed an un-believable show in all departments. They dominated the Flames, on Sunday for the entire quota of the last two periods and as things went into overdrive, they overtook the Flames- 35-10 including a clinical 7-0 score in OT.

This came as surprise to most of the audiences as in the past it was seen that these were the kind of games which the Ducks found ways to lose. But Sunday has a different proposition and for the sake of their fans and also for the sheer determination on part of their players especially their prime players, they found themselves to be on the better side.

Perry one of the chief catalysts of the win said that he was cocker-hoop with the win. He said that that the boys showed a lot of character and they stepped up at the right time. He also said that-“… when you have four lines going like we do, it’s a great feeling.”

Even the opposition admitted that they were beaten by a team which was well prepared both in terms of strategy as well as mind set. The Flames head coach Bob Hartley also said that it was a good learning experience for them. He also praised his boys saying that the boys fought very hard and that he was very proud of them.

The Most Exciting Leagues You’ve Never Watched

There is so much attention on Europe’s big three leagues, the EPL, La Liga and Bundesliga that little attention gets paid to some really fun leagues to watch, here’s our faves.

If you like the speed, toughness, physicality and competitiveness of the EPL then you’ll love the Championship. England’s second tier may not have the technical skill of its bigger brother but it certainly makes up for it with it’s fast pace, crunching tackles and abundance of goals. One of the great things about the Championship is that anyone can beat anyone, currently five points separate the top 9 teams with two of the promoted teams in the top six and two of the relegated EPL teams in the bottom six, talk about unpredictability! M88 Indonesia spokesman said “The Championship is one of the most interesting leagues to bet on because any team can win or lose any match.”

Tulips, clogs, canals, relaxed licensing laws and Total Football are all images conjured up when we think of Holland. The idea of an attacking possession based game where all players are technically gifted was born here. Technical, attacking football is ingrained in the Dutch football mentality and this makes the Eredivise one of the most attractive leagues to watch. Some of the world’s great players have started out in Holland, from the Original Ronaldo to Luis Suarez, from Arjen Robben to Van Persie, start watching and you might spot the next Wunderkid.

Asked to picture some passionate fans you might imagine the kop at Anfield or the Ultras of Milan, you would be forgiven for not thinking of the J League. However the J League of Japan has some of the most passionate fans in the world, the banners, the chants, the drums, they all make for a great atmosphere and fun league watch, it is a very popular league in Vietnam. You’ll soon find yourself immersed sights, sounds and rivalries of the J League, you might even be booking your tickets to the Shizuoka Derby between Shimizu S-Pulse and Jubilo Iwata! One more great thing, the league is mostly played in the European summer so you can get your football fix even when Bale & co are on the beach.

Will Diego Costa be Chelsea’s latest flop striker?

Diego Costa is the latest big money striker at Chelsea during the Roman Abramovich era.

Mateja Kežman, Andriy Shevchenko, Claudio Pizarro, Fernando Torres, Demba Ba and Samuel Eto’o have all fallen before. The latter at least a free transfer.

Didier Drogba and Nicolas Anelka the two most, or arguably, only successful strikers during this period.

Andriy Shevchenko and Fernando Torres will continue to make the list of the Premier League’s most expensive flops, something that Diego Costa must be weary of following his £32 million transfer from Atlético Madrid this summer.

The Brazilian-born Spanish international scored 27 goals in 35 La Liga matches last season as he helped fire Atlético to an unexpected league title. Hampered by injuries at the end of last season, he only played a few minutes in their UEFA Champions League final defeat to rivals Real Madrid.

Diego Costa is as short as 9.00 with Betfair to be Premier League top scorer this season.

His World Cup then proved to be a disaster with Spain being eliminated as defending champions after only two games. Diego Costa failed to hit the target in his 126 minutes of action.

Diego Costa was sharp in the box last season in what was really his break out season. In 2012-13, he was playing second-fiddle to Radamel Falcao, managing to score 10 goals in 31 La Liga matches.

Chelsea have had problems creating chances for their strikers over the past couple of seasons. It’s not been helped by the poor runs made by Fernando Torres. If their latest signing can find space in the penalty area, the likes of Eden Hazard, Oscar, Cesc Fàbregas and Willian can find him.

Cesc Fàbregas is a key signing here. The central midfielder Is great with through balls which could allow Costa one-on-one opportunities this season. The majority of his goals come within the 18 yard box and with his feet. So balls to the feet from the likes of Fàbregas, Hazard and Oscar should be a treat.

The Blues still have Fernando Torres on the books but Samuel Eto’o and Demba Ba have moved on. André Schürrle can also play up front, scoring three goals in six substitute appearances for Germany in their recent 2014 World Cup success.

That’s not to say Chelsea won’t go in the market for another striker this summer. Following reports that Edinson Cavani has asked his agent for a Premier League move from Paris Saint-Germain, Mourinho’s side are once again linked with the Uruguayan after the Portuguese manager’s interest over the past season or so.

As for Diego Costa, he has the right personnel around him to make a success at Stamford Bridge. His duty will be to simply stick the ball in the back of the net.
