that can only be described as bananas. Absolute bananas. Though Chelsea won on a 3-2 aggregate
score, the second leg finished 2-2, which means there is really just one question left for us to
It was a depleted Barcelona side that turned up in Valencia tonight, but it was also a team that
does't give and they got a credible 1-1 draw in their Copa del Rey semi-final first-leg. Barca will
be heavy favorites now to finish this tie off at the Camp Now.
Barca were given an early scare when Roberto Soldado raced onto a through ball, but Pinto came

Kenny Dalglish refused to be drawn on his January transfer plans after question marks were again
raised about Liverpool's potency in front of goal.
Dalglish watched his side take a richly deserved three points on Saturday afternoon to leapfrog
Newcastle United in sixth in the Premier League table but Liverpool's victory over Queens Park
Rangers should have been by a more handsome margin.
Kenny Dalglish believes Luis Suarez should be able to carve out a Liverpool legacy of his own,
rather than forever be compared to the Anfield king.
With the Scot's famous No.7 shirt now adorned by Suarez, comparisons between the pair were
inevitable, but Dalglish wants to allow the Uruguayan the opportunity to be his own man.
