      Good luck for Wolves and Southampton next week after they both lost this week.

      As long as Ronaldo comes back to England, I couldn't care less how it happens. He's my favourite player regardless of the club he plays for, but it's a lot more fun for me if he's in England. I suppose the only negative would be that City would possibly end up signing him.

      There is a lot of talk about the Andy Carroll loan lately it seems which is no surprise since the English media are obsessed with him. At the Liverpool end, they regret loaning him out now the owners haven't bothered to sign a replacement. At the West Ham end, Allardyce believes he can lead them to a top ten finish. Will the discussion of this useless player never end? :(

        I think calling Andy Carroll useless is a bit much, he's not a 35 million pound player but his record was good at Newcastle, once he's back in his rhythm I think he'll bang them in for Wet Spam. I think Big Sam tactics could take them into the top 10 but as I said the other day the gap between top and bottom is getting closer so that's less impressive than it was a decade ago.

        As for Wolves and Southampton, I hope they keep losing.

        He's not useless then, but he definitely doesn't deserve the ridiculous media attention. I hope West Ham go down to be honest, they're not a particularly exciting team.

        Hulk moved to Zenit for £40m today, the Russian League will soon be one of big ones at this rate.

            Nah, I'm a Norwich fan.

            I don't actually dislike Wolves, some Norwich fans seem to think there's a rivalry between the two clubs (Stemming from Kevin Muscat I think) but going by that logic most teams would be rival sides. I just want similar stature teams to be below us come the end of the season.

              They never have been. As a Blackpool fan, I was devestated that we didn't go up instead of West Ham, so I want them to go down too. One thing I do find funny: Liverpool in the relegation zone, Just like Man U were, back in 2007. Ha Ha XD

              As far as Lyon go in Ligue 1, we are 2nd behind Marseille, but at least we haven't lost our 5 games played, we just drew once. Not a bad start to the season :D

              But, in the J-League, Yokohama F Marinos have been very very disappointing. :(

              I just watched a higly surreal match. Georgia just played on a 0-4-6 strategy. They played the ball for under a minute in the entire first half and just spent the whole time just deflecting balls. By the end of the match, Ramos and Piqué gave up trying to defend nobody and started shooting on goal just in case any went in. In the 86th minute, when Soldado scored, we were playing on a 4-6-0 with nobody in our half just to balance it out.

              Absolutely surreal.

                Wolves have waltzed into round 2 of the carling cup after beating Northampton. And then we'll be playing Chelsea.

                  Oh lordy that was some awful Big Sam ball. Really could have done with all 3 points going into a tough month of games. I wonder if our first win will come against Newcastle, Liverpool, Chelsea or Arsenal.

                  Cole smash was probably highlight of the game.

                      Man Utd only lost because Spurs had batman on the wing.

                      Damn, I really feel sorry for Puyol, looks like he won´t be able to play again for quite some time.

                      That hurt me. The match should have ended in the 60th minute. Now Barça are playing the Clásico with no pure defenders- Song and Mascherano, wtf. Well, the btter for us, since we could move top of the table if we beat Málaga and Barça draw or lose to Madrid, and they would still have 8/5 points in hand against them anyway (I'd rather see Madrid lose though, I think it's easier for us to beat Barça than our stupid neighbours XD).

                      The ref was a moron too. It's like he forgot to put the yellow card back in his pocket during the last five minutes. And that red to Busquets was a joke.

                      Anyway, I've only seen the second half of that game, but really it wasn't with the ref's stupidity and Puyol's injury

                      Oh easy:

                      1- Barça 18 pt
                      2- Atlético Madrid 16 pt
                      ...
                      6: Real Madrid 10 pt

                      Ever since we came back to primera after our 1998 relegation, we have never beat R. Madrid in a league match. We have beat Barça several times though. So I'd rather have Madrid lose and increase the gap between us and then fight Barcelona in our face-to-face matches than let Madrid get close and go to the derby with the usual pressure XD

                            I'm going to download the match I just watched.

                            Depor 4 - 5 Barça

                            It was one of the best matches ever ever ever.

                            0-1 Jordi Alba Min 3

                            0-2 Tello Min 8

                            0-3 Messi Min 18

                            1-3 Pizzi (Pen) Min 27

                            2-3 Álex Bergantiños Min 37

                            2-4 Messi Min 44

                            3-4 Pizzi Min 47

                            -Mascherano RC'ed for double yellow, Barça down to 10

                            3-5 Messi Min 78

                            4-5 Jordi Alba (og) Min 79

                            I'm just bouncing all over the house.

                            I didn't watch it, but I saw the goals. And what a match it must have been.

                            And that Messi guy, and I quote Benfica's manager, is indeed "an extraterrestrial".

                              I'm pretty happy with today - there's the obvious United vs Chelsea, and any day where Chelsea loses (and gets two men sent off wheeeee) is a good day, but even better - Spurs 2 - 1 Southampton. Although we kinda fell apart in the second half, it was a much-needed win for us. If only we'd won against Chelsea last week, we'd be top of the league right now. ]:

                                Torres and Ivanovic expulsions within 5 minutes... seriously? "Ferggie" making noise against the referees as always, sometimes it works... what a robbery dude...

                                  Ivanovic's red card was justified. Being the last man, he was itching for a red card. But, ultimately, Young made the most out of it and forced the referee's hand. Now, for the second card, Evans was clearly looking to tackle Torres and there was - albeit minimal - contact. How Torres was adjudged to have dived when Evans was clearly going his leg is beyond me. Not to mention Javier's offside goal. These kind of decisions need to be considered thoroughly, even if they take a few minutes. It was a weak and questionable display from the referees. This happened TWICE this season now for United: against Liverpool (who by the way were robbed of a perfectly legitimate goal in the dying minutes) and today.

                                  I feel for the Chelsea fans. They didn't deserve to lose. They displayed more will even with 9 men. Nobody, except unreasonable United fans maybe, will truly acknowledge this win as a deserved one.
