    What odds a Derby Burnley semi? Revenge!

    Seriously DCFC in the semi-finals of a cup, who'd have seen that coming last year!

    That said we have been due a cup run for a very long time!

    Roy Keane is officially an idiot. He's essentially thrown the towel in the instant things got tough and he started losing games en masse.

    Foolish.

    btw. I'd guess many people know of this already, but my new favourite site in the whole internet: www.atdhe.net/
    I have no idea how long they'll be able to operate before getting shut down, but as long as it exists this site is just amazing beyond words - watch live football (and other sports) for free as live streams comfortably in acceptable quality. :)

    My tip for today: the 288th Vienna derby - Austria vs Rapid (the greatest club in the world) at 15:30 CET. ;)

    The BBC are saying that Real Madrid are set to sack Bernd Schuster and replace him with Juande Ramos.

    So, yet another ex-Spurs manager fails upwards.

    When I pulled it up McAfee anti-virus screamed that this was full of malware.

    Proceed with caution.

    Spain love Ramos though. Be interesting to see how Sevilla welcome him back to La Liga when Madrid play their away match there. I mean, this is a guy who once had a bottle of cement thrown at him, and that was BEFORE he did his Judas act...

    Can somebody explain to me why, of the 16 "fans" who are wanted by the Police for the homophobic and racist chanting directed towards Sol Campbell at Fratton Park this season, neither Spurs nor Portsmouth know who paid for any of their tickets ?

    He's got really good potential but no way REAL MADRID at this point in time if ever.

    "Sources" also suggest Ramos wants to buy Didier Zokora for Real Madrid.

    I'm not even a Tottenham fan, but I would pay for his taxi to Spain myself.

    Paul Ince has been sacked and shame on you Blackburn...

    * They sold his 2 best players

    * Spent the least amount of money in the PL

    * Injuries and oh not even half way mark

    I would of gave him at least the next game against Stoke, infact a lot of upcoming games are quite winnable, no major teams. Blackburn were doomed when they decided to become a selling club and not fund replacements.

    Ah the revolving door at Real Madrid continues to spin. :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Just to think a year ago most real fans were showering Schuster with praise but now they are all cursing him.

    Bad start for Ramos by losing the El Clasico. I wonder how long before real fans starts to boo him also.

    Great. And now we get to see another Fat Sam team kick their way out of relegation by way of the opposing side's ankles. :rolleyes:
