Tonight's a big game for PSV, they're up against Feyenoord in the Dutch cup. Here's hoping they'll do well. By the way:
Anyone knew about this? I watched the match on tv and really felt sorry for all the good people supporting FC Den Bosch. To think a small group of ***holes finds it amusing to ruin a nice game of football like this. Disgusting!

It was always likely to be a short one with them playing the tournament a year early. Was disappointed with Zambia though. Watched their matches against Ethiopia and Burkina Faso and at no point did they look like Champions. If I'm honest they were lucky to get a draw against Ethiopia and considering what was at stake they were really poor against Burkina Faso, who by contrast are looking really interesting.

Arsenal drew with Liverpool 2-2 (sigh..) at least Spurs didn't win

PSV defeated Feyenoord with 2-1. An exciting game with a strong opponent but we managed to win. Tomorrow we'll find out who we will meet in the semi-finals.

That is horrible but sadly it is common everywhere in every league. Hopefully those caught doing it will be punished. Life time bans are a must if this is to stop

Arg, 2-0 up with 3 minutes to go, and we end up drawing!? Shockingly poor. Would never have let something like that happen under Mourinho. Really hope he leaves Real Madrid in the summer and returns to the Bridge. To be honest, was a little disappointed Real managed to get that equaliser against Barca. Another El Classico defeat would definitely have helped speed up his departure. Not quite sure why Rafa decided to bring on Benayoun and Ba to help us see out the lead, when we had Terry on the bench. Another in what's become quite a big line of poor tactical decisions on his part. Thought he was suppose to be some sort of tactical genius...
Only small comfort is Tottenham, City, Arsenal and Liverpool all drawing as well.

Fergie broke him. He has never been the same since that title challenge he had with Liverpool vs United. He'll be gone in the summer but I think for Chelsea that is too long and he will do some serious damage if left unchecked. I think Mourinho would be perfect for Chelsea but only if Roman lets him to it in peace.

I don't know why so many people just assume that Jose would go back to Chelsea, the whole reason he left was because of the conflicts with Roman, who is still there.

Mourinho is more likely to manage Man Utd after Sir Alex retires than go back to Chelsea.

Looks more likely, since Pep is on his way to Bayern.

Not sure if that sounds good come May if QPR get relegated. That and David Beckham signing for PSG...

I think arsenal are meant to be in for Malaga left back Nacho Monreal. In the end it doesn't make any difference who we sign because the tactics or lack of them are all wrong. The defense have no clue what to do and that's sad because at the being of the season bould looked like to have sorted out that problem though it didn't take long for Wenger to stop the defense training. We don't look like a unit at the back just a bunch of individuals and the pressure is getting to them. Even if we had the classic arsenal defense back we would be letting in all the silly goals because they aren't being trained to deal with them. This arsenal squad needs a new manager before new players. The squad right now is not good enough to challenge for the title but it is good enough to get third place and one of the domestic cups. I fear until Wenger leaves this Arsenal squad will continue to get worse.

Don't get me started on our defence. Did you see our game yeaterday? Shocking stuff at the back as per usual it seems. Arsene seems to be losing touch with the modern game and seeing the likes of Everton and frickin' Spurs ahead of us not only in the table, but as a squad overall, is literally your username, my nightmare is alive. Can't believe how we have regressed over the years and it's no serect. Our transfer policy sucks balls. We sell our top players with lesser ones and Wenger seriously needs to learn from good old 'Arry about 'wheeling and dealing' in the transfer market. Till then we're screwed year in, year out and it hurts to see as a lifelong Gooner.

Sadly, it wasn't long ago when a referee was kicked to death in our country. And now this **** happens. I heard the club is not only after life time bans but also are going to try and get them arrested and punished by the police.

Yeah I looked him up and seems decent, let's see if he can cope in the PL first which I hope he does. Santos vs Ribery/Robben, can I bear to watch?

Anyway, tonight's (it's half past midnight over here, so that's why ''tonight'') an important game for PSV. They're up against ADO Den Haag, one of the lesser teams in the Dutch league. Though normally i would assume this is an easy victory, i can't tell for sure after what happened two weeks ago against PEC. Who, as a matter of fact, are our opponents for the semi-finals in february. Hopefully PSV wins both matches, then they're in the title match for the cup and they will have strengthened their position as the leading team in the competition.

Premier League looking good so far, QPR drew 0-0 earlier but Villa leading Everton 2-1, which is a surprise but I doubt that lead will last long. Come on Arsenal! Let's bury Stoke. COYG!!!
