This is probably the most anticipated match before New Year as Serie A and La Liga are already having their winter breaks. Liverpool have been on a good run of wins while Newcastle have chalked up results of all kinds. There is probably one more cool match before New Year on the 31st December 2005.

Tottenham Hotspurs VS. Newcastle United

The talk for the past few days however had been focused on Michael Owen's return to Anfield and why Liverpool let Newcastle United sign him instead. It was one of the most shocking news of the season which included the transfer of Vieira, the transfer of Vieri and Keane ending his career at Manchester United.

A win in Anfield for Newcastle United will give Souness much confidence needed in the roller-coaster ride season. The attention is also on Shearer to equal Jackie Milburn's club record of 200 goals. A win will give Liverpool fans much regret for not signing one of their favourite sons in this era apart from Steven Gerrard. A lost for Newcastle will calm the waters for Benitez for not signing Owen.

Therefore, it will be an exciting match given the circumstances and it will be a good match to watch before the winter break. All eyes will be on the transfer market again, especially for Manchester United, Arsenal and Real Madrid. They are looking for more players to give them more muscle to win title/s this season.

Barcelona will be the team to beat for 2005 and still will be the force to be reckoned with in 2006 as long as Ronaldinho, Eto'o, Deco, Guily, Van Bommel, Puyol, Xavi and Messi stay healthy, injury free and suspension free. Ronaldinho the Magician is the biggest difference.
