On Wednesday 7th of November, a night was etched in Celtic history. Another famous scalp to go with the countless others of the past. Celtic stood tall and went toe-to-toe with Barcelona and came out as victors, propelled by the strong Wall of Noise that greets all opposing teams when they enter Celtic Park. The birth of this current Celtic squad can be drawn back to the summer of 2010 when Celtic’s most valuable asset was sold and with that money the current Celtic squad was built. A squad that has now squared up to the best the world can offer and has come out with absolutely no fear in their eyes.

Athletic Bilbao have improved immensely game by game under the new leadership of former Argentina and Chile boss Marcelo Bielsa. One of the key players for the Basque side is Iker Muniain, a 19 year old who can play on both wings, up front or as an attacking midfielder. He has great ball control, dribbling ability, pace and creativity which have resulted in him being dubbed the “Spanish Messi”. He is also nicknamed Bart Simpson for his similarity in appearance to the cartoon character and has a drawing of Bart on his shin pads.

Their previous manager, Andre Villas Boas, was sacked in March after a run of disappointing results. All this unfolded amidst talk of unrest within the squad and acrimony between the manager and certain senior players.

With Lukas Podolski’s summer transfer to Arsenal looking more likely every day, one can’t help but wonder if this is the right move for the Gunners. The North Londoners have been having a far from perfect year, and manager Arsene Wenger has attracted his fair share of criticism, but perhaps a summer spending spree could be the remedy.
Podolski could become their first new signing, with a suggested fee of around €10 million. The German forward first made his name on the world stage at the 2006 World Cup where he won the Best Young Player award. That year, he scored 12 times in 17 appearances for the German national team.
