I wonder if the nil nil draw today was agreed beforehand in order for Spurs to give their north London neighbours a nice payday at White Hart Lane. Harry is a damned good bloke.

Nah, that'd be match-fixing, I don't think Harry wants another court case. I know you're just kidding though. I hope that wasn't the strongest available team, and he wrongly thought "lower league opposition, I can get away with playing the reserves and still win this easily".

Was shocked by Arsenal's comeback against Spurs today. Has steelclaw any comment to make? The League Cup final was a thriller as well.

Yeah, Cardiff are to be commended for holding Liverpool at bay for 120 minutes, only losing 3-2 on penalties.

Good win for Swansea today, beating Man City 1-0. That means United, who won 2-0 against West Brom, overtake City.

I enjoyed the cup semi-final on Saturday - I usually get bored after about 15 minutes of a live match unless it is end to end stuff. Charlton were promoted so the old Millwall/Charlton local derbies are back. When my brother was alive we would go to Charlton quite often when Millwall were away. Also enjoyed some Leyton Orient games in those days. Me and my brother once stood in the away end at Charlton v West Ham and had to enjoy 90 minutes of abuse against Millwall - I wanted to sort them out but my Brother calmed me down with "Don'r do it - they're not worth it." I'm not sure if West Ham scored and we had to go through some fake celebrations so as not to give ourselves away.

Wondering what sort of team Chelsea will put out against Spurs today bearing in mind they face Barcelona on Wednesday.

No Comment Grrrrrrrrrrrr.

I'm expecting a Chelsea win today, any other result will be a bonus.
Spurs have had their 5 minutes of being in the top 4 all season. Harry's going, & Modric and Bale will go in the summer.

Oh well could be worse only 0-1 at half time.

Not many English players in the Chelsea team.

The captain (unfortunately banned, damn you John Terry) and vice-captain are English at least. Heh, the best thing is, turns out their opposition will be Bayern Munich - it's an English team vs a German one!

Man City v Man United. Has nobody anything to say. I hope United win tonight - no real reason just that I admire Sir Alex.

Call me biased if you want, but there's also the matter that if City win the league, it'll prove that money buys success. United earned their money (merchandise sales, people actually going to the games, etc) while City rely on an Arab sugar daddy. It's similar to Chelsea a few years ago. They started having success after being bought by a Russian.

The Manchester derby is so crucial that Match of the Day is actually on tonight, something they normally don't bother with if there's only one game to review.
