A week is a long time in a busy life especially when there are so many stories in the media featuring Manchester United. The question on everyone’s lips this week was whether a bitter Liverpool were likely to simply roll over against Chelsea at Anfield. The clear answer was found in Steven Gerrard’s defence splitting pass to Didier Drogba to set up a glorious 0-2 defeat for the Scousers! How did the media react?

And finally a FLASHBACK. Although the referee – a self confessed Liverpool fan, was not in line with Drogba, he was well positioned to spot the blatant offside and could have easily overruled his assistant. A new, lighter flag should also be made available to this assistant as the one he used was obviously too heavy for him to raise. You have to wonder how well he will sleep on Sunday night.
NEWSFLASH: Congratulations must go to our bitter neighbours for achieving their ambition. City has finally qualified…for the 2nd Division Europa League! Until next week, cheers.
