It’s Liverpool’s turn to be out of the title race this week. Who’s next? Arsenal? Tottenham (hah!)?

Let’s hope that we won’t see more players kicked off the park this week…

Darren Fletcher: Analysed
Elliott Tucker (of FutFanatico.com fame) takes to pen and paper (and actual game-watching) to explain just how good (or not) Darren Fletcher is.

Vidic denies being unhappy with United
After his agent allegedly said that he wants to move to Barcelona, Nemanja Vidic ended all rumours that he wants a transfer. The red defender also revealed that his wife is happy living in Manchester. Or rather, “it’s not true that she’s not happy.”

That Was Anfield
Brian Phillips gives a picture-perfect account of the game at Anfield.

Kung fu football

Early reports suggest that some Al Ahli brutally attacked Chelsea players with fists, kicks and eye-gouges, all caught on video (unreleased, of course).
