Depor v Liverpool: So, since the last Liverpool post was busy, i thought I'd put up a link to the Guardian's coverage of today's CL game between Liverpool and Deportivo La Coruna. Predictions, comments and rants welcome.

Of course you can also follow United v Sparta at the Guardian, and follow more serious play by plays at Soccernet and the BBC.

Cisse suffers horrible broken Leg: Liverpool's Djibril Cisse broke his tibia and fibula on Saturday morning at Blackburn. It seems like that ground is cursed for the Reds, with Jamie Carragher breaking his leg and Milan Baros breaking an ankle there last year.
Warning: the link includes a picture which is almost of Joe Theisman horror.

Owen's off to Madrid: while Viera finally decides to stay.

Liverpool fans aren't too happy with the way Owen's leaving, with only $8m pounds going the other way. Can anyone see this as being good for either the 'Pool or Owen? And does Viera staying at Arsenal mean that the Gunners are going to win it all again? The Premiership starts tomorrow.

It's never too early to start Spofi's Fantasy EPL!

I'm back as Sauril's Wideboys. This year I hope to actively participate...

RoboStick pulls hair to score goal

Brazil? You should have seen Argentina this morning... I was at the pub yesterday watching the game, and it was agonizing...

Get ready to dislike America

Drood, Canada's a great place to be for watching the world cup! Every game is on basic cable (either TSN or Sportsnet), sometimes twice, and even The Score has jumped on the bandwagon (although you have to put up with their idiot 'reporters'). I'm thoroughly looking forward to the World Cup, and kinda wishing I was unemployed like last time.... And hockey's over soon...

Secret Signals.

I used to ref when I was a teenager. It was an easy way to make some spare cash, and while I never reffed at that high a level, the sprinting towards the center on a score was something that we were taught... Now the clenched fist thing, that explains a lot.

Rooney may only play as early as World Cup second round

And don't forget the conspiracy theory! Alex Ferguson just fired ManU's doctor. No FA member will be there for the scan, and Ferguson doesn't want Rooney to go. Crazy stuff...

Champions of Europe!

holden, all of us at the pub were saying exactly the same thing. What a waste of time...

Champions of Europe!

The foul was outside the box, so no penalty, but a clear red card. I too was disappointed he didn't play advantage. It would have been nice to see some more 11 on 11 with Arsenal attacking and Barca coming back on the break. And that foul that led to Arsenal's goal was a blatant dive - he didn't even get touched... fun game to watch as a neutral, though.

Meet Theo Walcott of Arsenal Reserves... and England

Someone above mentioned Scott Parker. He's got 'glandular fever', which as I understand is the same as Mononucleosis. He isn't going to be playing for a while...

Tottenham Not So Hotspur

That's life as a Spur's fan, I guess.... It might not be that bad for them, though. If they entered the CL qualifier with no points in Europe (as Everton did this year), they could have been drawn against a Spanish or Italian 3rd or 4th team for the qualifiers, and then miss out on Europe alltogether except for 2 games. Now, they get the UEFA cup, will hopefully have a good run, gain some experience and points, and have a run at it again next year...

Getting excited about the World Cup yet?

I'm fired up for it already...and have a bit of conundrum. If England come 2nd in their group, then I will be getting married the day they play. I have a feeling that half my family would be late...

Why the Leafs Stink

Ha! Looks like it, doesn't it. I remember going to the Forum when I was a little kid and seeing them smoke on the BENCH!

January transfer window closes with few surprises.

Robbie Fowler.... Danny Murphy is just confusing. Because Spurs need another central midfielder.

Gerrard to leave Liverpool (finally)?

Radio 5 says that Barca offered 37m. Holy Crap that's a lot of money. Personally, I'm sad to see him go, but for that kind of cash...
