Blackburn Rovers fans have spent all season trying to get rid of the club owners who they blame for
Steve Kean, Alan Shearer leaving and the rising cost of petrol. They wave their banners, they chant
You Don't Know What You're Doing then they rush to get the bus to get home in time for tea.
Persib fans recently decided they had tired of Persib manager Umuh Muchtar, known in these parts as
Possession, then, might only be nine-tenths of the law after all. When push came to shove at the
Camp Nou last night, the young tigers of Barcelona were cast aside by Chelsea's old dogs¬ in a
match of events so improbable¬ that it¬ at times stretch the credulity of the viewer. Such, though,
has been the nature of Chelsea's season since the departure of Andre Villa-Boas two months ago.

Reina's petrol, Terry's Usher CD and Roy's new clothes: Top 10 football
Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina has revealed the bizarre superstitions he must go through before

I hope everyone out there who described Mikel Arteta as a panic buy will stand up and apologise

for a long time. Maybe forever. And ever.
That man is a complete class act and the fact that he was even acknowledged by some as purchase of

Disappointing news arrives for Valencia as they will likely lose one of their important players,
Ever Banega for the remaining of season after the player picked up a self injury which forced an
operation that could take six months of recovery.

Wayne Rooney has remarkably claimed today it angers him when people question whether he really
intends to stay at the club or not.
Just a few months ago, the player released an official statement saying he had no intention of

It doesn't get much more comfortable than that. Stevenage started strongly and had¬ the game won
