    Man, Inter are in dire straits in terms of squad depth. Wouldn’t be surprised if they have to fight relegation next season. Their keeper might be their best player.

  2. Tayo says:

    I am proud to say 4 of these teams will be fielding a Nigerian player. Makes me proud. But on the other note, the Juve Strike Force is loaded!

  3. Paul says:

    What’s going on with this site asking me to watch a video in order to receive ‘uninterrupted’ access for 24 hours?!
