    I'm back from vacation today...missed all the matches this weekend. At least Newcastle drew (again). The Tyne-Wear derby with Sunderland is this weekend. Hopefully, a win and something to build upon will be the result.

    Love the fact that a new "face" has taken center stage on the goal scoring front. Zaki has been a machine this year, without a ton of talent around him. If he keeps this up, he'll will be with one of the Big 4 within a year. Sad, but true.

    Did everyone see this?

    Becks on Loan to Milan.

    I'm not sure of Milan's motivation to bring Becks over...I understand for him that Capello doesn't want anyone on the England squad that isn't playing meaningful games in Europe...but it seems Milan has plenty of midfielders, and they definitely have a free kick specialist on par with Becks

    Zaki is on fire right now, hopefully he keeps it up...almost every season someone comes out of the gates looking like a new superstar, then fades as the season progresses...not saying he will, because I've watched him play a few times, and he is very talented...true, he doesn't have much support in that lineup

    yesterday was a lot more fun in the CL, I thought the Liverpool/Atletico & Chelsea/Roma games were terribly boring...wish I had a big chunk of my day back! Liverpool/Atletico was a very sloppy game, but thankfully it picked up for portions of the second half

    Becks would never see the field at Milan. They can barely get Flamini any playing time as it is.

    My take on Zaki is good for Wigan. If he comes close to keeping this up he'll probably keep them out of the drop or at least fetch them a pretty penny if they sell him at the transfer window. That'd be a nice bit of business for them. But I don't think they can stay up without him. Bolton nearly blew it and got relegated after selling Anelka last year.

    I agree about the Liverpool match. The first half was a snoozer outside of the walk-in goal. At lest Athletico made things exciting in the second half. They deserved all three points but I guess it won't really matter in the end seeing as both are going through.

    I suck. Still no digital cable, or satellite. Hence, I view my matches mostly online. I do the occasional viewing at a local pub, or friend's house.

    Same here. At least with Arsenal on FSC this weekend, I should have no trouble finding a site that is streaming the game on either livesoccernet or futbolarg.

    It could be worse. I had to "watch" their CL match against Fenerbahce on Yahoo! UK Matchcast this week because the match was on while I was at work. Obviously our IS folks frown on sites that have streaming video because they feel it would affect our productivity.

    ESPN has broadcasting rights to at least some of the CL matches, but so far I've only seen matches being broadcast on their ESPN Deportes channel, which I don't have.

    Damn. I woke up at 9am, totally hungover, to watch the Arsenal match only to discover its tomorrow. Not pleased.

    Anyway, Blackburn is sooooooo lucky to take a point out of that match. Outplayed the whole match and equalize on the game's last touch.

    i'm off work today, so I'm gonna sit on my ass and watch Man Utd vs West Ham & Chelsea vs Hull City...a great way to spend my day!

    Gunners better handle Spurs today! Adebayor was talking about how bad Tottenham is and how everyone feels sorry for them, I hope Ade doesn't help to fire them up...Arsenal should be fine, but I'm hoping not to see as much Bendtner as I did against West Ham. Wenger has some fascination with him that I truly cannot understand. He is clumsy and indecisive and finds himself in the way too often. Hopefully Eduardo's return is on schedule like they've been saying, that could really be a boost. Van Persie is slowly getting back into form and Ade is great..now if only they could find a holding midfielder...I'm not sold on Song yet, but he is young, so he may develop yet

    I know they're missing Toure, but Arsenal is showing why they aren't going to be a title contender in the PL this year....

    you can't draw at home when you score 4 goals, terrible, terrible defense...1 goal in 89th then another in stoppage time....fucking pathetic...fuck!!

    I completely agree it was if I didn't have an allegiance one way...just weak on Arsenal's part at home against the bottom of the table ...

    although Spurs have talent and shouldn't be where they are

    another week, another Arsenal letdown to discuss....becoming all too familiar this season..

    it's just particularly upsetting at the moment, because I feel if they struggle all year, Cesc may leave...and I'm not ready for that day yet

    I know they have Champions League coming up, but they really needed a Premiereship win this weekend to right the ship a little before the rough stretch they have coming up

    More CL games today. Apparantly, nasty weather may delay, or even postpone, the Roma Chelsea match. Sucks...that one was the match I wanted to follow today.

    Newcastle move up 6 spots with the win yesterday! Best result in some time. 2-0 over a solid Aston Villa squad. Hopefully, something to build upon. Martins scored both goals. The second, off a great run from Gutierrez. It is impressive how quickly Jonas Gutierrez has impacted the team. There was a huge drop off when he was out of the lineup. He is one of the few mids on the team that can create any deep runs. Having him, and Duff on the other side, seems to be the best combo.

    Bentley's goal was sexy

    As was Lampard's cheeky little chip.

    That's why we love this sport.

    Wow, Del Piero is a force in Champions League matches.

    I don't know how Arsenal didn't net. Takes effort to squander that many chances.
