1. Jamie Carragher and Martin Skrtel were moonlighting as the Chuckle Brothers. The classic calamitous 'to me, to you' routine was played out perfectly. It was a fine indication that a retired Carra would be more suited to CBBC than ESPN. 2. Andy Carroll's astonishing close-range headed miss was remarkable for the sheer authority with [.

Why Christmas shopping with Arsene must be sheer hell

Hell must involve Christmas shopping with Arsene Wenger. He spends months drawing up shortlists. He seeks quality, value, longevity. Then, at 11pm on Christmas Eve, he dives into the all-night garage. And buys deep-frozen roses, a damaged box of Dairy Milk, and counterfeit Dior perfume that smells of cat's urine.

English Premier League: Bent Transfers In England

Football's versions of the January sales - inflated prices and manager's traipsing far and wide with the desperation of a father searching for a Buzz Lightyear toy on Christmas Eve.

Regular English Premier League guest blogger, Mark Briggs, is back with a look at the moves and speculation as Kenny Dalglish looks to revitalise Liverpool, Charlie Adam and Blackpool face up to a parting of the ways and a calm and collected Aston Villa are in no way panicked into a big money move for Darren Bent.

Ahead of journeying up to Spotland, Wednesday supporter John Leigh tries to come to terms with Gary Megson's extraordinary sacking at Hillsborough. Not since Christmas Eve, 1973, the day on which former goalscoring legend Derek Dooley received the sack, can there have been a more ill-timed expulsion from Hillsborough.

Off-Season Turnover Has Left Sounders' Core Largely Intact

Sounder at Heart at related • 0 views

Even for the most faithful Seattle Sounders supporters among us, this has been a bit of a rough off-season. The numbers fairly illustrate why: Nine players that were part of the team during the final game of the season are no longer here. Those players represent more than 14,000 minutes of all-competition playing time or about 29 percent of the total minutes played by the team.

When I woke up this morning I was in a state of immediate excitement. I felt a lot like how a kid feels on Christmas eve (or a Hanukkah night for Jews like myself) - giddy, wide eyed and energetic.

Unfortunately, Rutgers' mail office is evil incarnate and kept me from playing FIFA '12 until my friend came back from Target with his own copy.

Ordinarily, I avoid the superficial, Sky induced hype of Deadline Day in the same manner that I'd give a live railway line a wide berth. The gurning, buckteeth boys leering swearily behind Sky reporters (shouldn't you unruly yoots be looting JD Sports or something?), the strains of Jim White unloading his cargo as Jimmy McJourneyman completes his lucrative loan move to Hamilton Academicals.

Sound The All-Clear: The Transfer Window Is Closed

We emerge blinking into the sunlight, with Sky Sports News still gibbering away to itself in the background. Transfer deadline day, the weirdest day in the entire football calendar, is over and now, perhaps, things can start getting back to normal. There is nothing edifying about this day. There is no outlet for those concerned to behave with a great deal dignity and it has come to feel in recent years as if, for all of the chaos that it seems to throw all clubs into for twenty-four hours or so, the clubs, managers and players are willing participants in this particular circus.

Last winter, in the days leading up to Christmas Eve, I stopped inside one of Faneuil Hall's sports stores purely out of curiosity. The gigantic, 70-foot tree outside and the bitter cold weren't reminding me that I needed to buy more presents ahead of the 25th promise.

200 years ago this year the War of 1812 started. On Christmas Eve 1814 the Treaty of Ghent, ending hostilities, was signed. Due to the slow pace of communication in the 1800's New Orleans didn't find out about the treaty until after the Americans defended the city from the British on January 8th, 1815.

SPL: Capital gains
