The tide is turning in Manchester for David Moyes as he saw his side beat Stoke City 2-0 to reach the League Cup semi-finals on Wednesday. That is three wins in a week for United, in three different competitions, with three clean sheets.

In the night's other game, firing Andre Villas-Boas did nothing to life the gloom surrounding Tottenham Hotspur as they could not hold onto a one goal lead and lost 2-1 at home to West Ham United.

The Sounders are back in action this Saturday against Real Salt Lake. They'll be battling fatigue for the full 90 at one of the hardest stadiums in MLS to get a win. Also, some are calling this a must-win match for RSL as they attempt to arrest a spat of poor form in league play. It would be nice to come back from the disappointing loss on Wednesday to Dallas FC with a road win, but it will be a tough challenge for a fatigued team.

Another week down in MLS and another week that the draws keep most of the clubs where they were a week ago. Only a couple movers in this week's rankings as Seattle leaped over Dallas, Portland moved up and Colorado began their fall further down.

Hopefully next week we start seeing some changes again as the schedule gets fairly crowded with midweek games and weekend games before the All-Star "break" next week.

The Sounders would go on to lose 1-0 to the Galaxy in an evenly matched affair. The results of the match were somewhat overshadowed by the surprising news that Blaise Nkufo and the Sounders would be parting ways.

Good morning from a much wetter than usual, but not as wet as when I went to bed, Dublin. It all got a bit mental here yesterday evening. Heavy rain, rivers bursting their banks, a strange man rounding up two of every animal. Where I live turned from a quiet road into a 2 foot deep river.

Thankfully everything outside seems to be back to normal now, if a little damp, so we can look ahead to tonight's Carling Cup game against Bolton.

There was heavy rain on the course on the decent but the race was stopped when they hit paved road. The report is that the time gaps were taken at the top of the summit but the racers were allowed to descend to the end of the dirt area before the race was stopped and the time gaps from the summit reestablished.

Morning folks,

the weather in Dublin this morning is like the Arsenal mood. Grey, miserable and drizzling slightly with a chance of heavy rain later in the day. The first two were probably sufficient for the description but there you go.

There is a fairly widespread acceptance that Saturday's display against Blackburn has cost us our chance of the title.
