But this time the TV hyperbole merchants might have it about right with two massive games in the Premier League.
I like the look of goals at Man City v Arsenal where two exciting attacks can get the better of two wobbly back fours.
It was a real watch-through-your-fingers first half in the Bernabeu for right backs everywhere on Tuesday as Real’s Ronaldo tormented City’s poor Maicon.
I’m sure that weakness down the flanks won’t have gone unnoticed by Arsene Wenger who might just decide that attack is the best form of defence in the 4 o’clock kick-off.
The Gunners have tightened-up at the back under Steve Bould’s direction. But the centre halves still look vulnerable to me and I can see both sides shipping a couple in what promises to be a barnstormer.
Paddy Power is offering 7/4 on over 3.5 goals and 4/1 on over 4.5 goals so lets have a crack at both and hope the strikers have got their shooting boots on.
The other big game is at Anfield where Liverpool host Man Utd.
Let’s hope the Hillsborough tributes are treated with respect and both sets of supporters draw a line under some of the more grotesque taunts over past tragedies.
I’m all for a bit of banter at football and giving it to players and rivals when it’s done with a decent dose of wit and humour.
But singing about people dying in terrace crushes and plane crashes is just shaming.
Back on the pitch, this looks a very tough one to call so I’ll leave well alone and stick with our predicted goal glut at the Etihad.
