Well, that was a quite week, wasnt it?
Firstly, a congratulations is in order. After a tough season, with many ups and downs, the trophy probably went to the most deserving team. After a great final game at The Etihad, in front of probably their biggest attendance ever, the quality really showed. So, congratulations to Manchester United’s reserve team, on their senior cup win.
Roy Hodgson has named his first England squad. Lets be honest, its not that great. In true Mike Bassett ‘Benson & Hedges’ style, the names ‘Downing & Carroll’ somehow managed to find their way on to the list. One explanation, could be that Roy Hodgson is absolutely mental.
The circus, that is Liverpool FC, was in full swing this week, with the sacking of Kenny Dalglish. This, has got to be one of the wierdest sackings ever, as not only were the Liverpool fans gutted, but also the Manchester United fans.
The look out for Dalglish’s replacement is on. The Liverpool fans are dreaming of landing Mourinho or Guardiola, a move that will probably be as successful as my move on Sophie Reade. In reality, the manager of Swansea, has turned down the opportunity to speak to them.
Carlos Tevez spent the week, being Carlos Tevez. On Manchester City’s biggest day for almost half a century, he decided to have a pop at Sir Alex Ferguson. City apologised, and told us that Carlos Tevez apologised. Carlos Tevez then told us that he won’t apologise. Remind you of a substitute bench, in Germany?
Joey Barton had a mini breakdown this week, after being sent off, in the final game of the season. He decided to try and take a Manchester City player with him. Unfortunately for Joey, this time, he didn’t have a lit cigar on him, and in the end, he made a bit of a fool of himself.
It’s the Champions League final at the weekend. Bayern Munich take on Chelsea, in Germany. Chelsea, of course, will be without the inspirational John Terry. People are unsure as to whether his replacement will be able to step up to the plate. However, Roberto Di Matteo has done enough in recent weeks to suggest he can.
And finally. For the second season running, an ‘Owen’ is leaving Manchester United, on a free transfer. This time, it is of course, Micheal Owen. Now, probably more famous for his work with the horses, his career here never really took off. His work with horses, could lead him back to Liverpool, and pethaps, a new WAG.
