When Clarence Seedorf scored what was going to be the game-winner for AC Milan, that was probably the biggest news coming out of Serie A of San Siro was David Beckham's injury.

An adage in coaching i used to hear often about any manger who's team began to falter after a good season was "He became dumb over night" Referring to a coach or manager who led a side to great results one year but followed it up with disastrous results the following year.

Gabriele Marcotti has added some good commentary on the criticism Fabio Cappello was receiving about his position of Steven Gerrard in last week's friendly defeat to the Czech Republic,
