Midweek Results, Pt I: A Not-So-Thorough Examination

Cardiff players gave unfortunate Blackburn a tough examination at the City Stadium last night. Snork. Image: Stu Forster/Getty Images.

Sorry. We just couldn’t resist.

Carling Cup

Arsenal 0-1 Manchester City

A rough night at the Emirates for Sami. Rather cleverly though, he predicted the abuse he was going to receive and achieved karmic set-off with his tremendously smooth thighs. Image: Michael Regan/Getty Images.


Chelsea 0-2 Liverpool

La Liga

Barcelona 4-0 Rayo Vallecano

You can hardly blame Javi Fuego for copping a quick feel, can you? That thigh is something to behold. Image: David Ramos/Getty Images Europe.


Serie A

Napoli 3-3 Juventus

Walter Gargano tries and fails to prevent Marek Hamsik making a berk of himself after his opening goal. That’s what friends are for, yo. Image: REUTERS/Stefano Renna.


How did your boys get on? Or were you too busy with the frizz-ease to notice?

    So so proud of my Cardiff City! Was there and there was a lovely tribute to Gary Speed before hand :) Carling Cup final? Hopefully! :)

    Liverpool were just so boss against Chelsea. The only disappointment though was the injury to Lucas. Hope he’s not out for the season as is being reported.

    What is going on with Chelsea's defense. For both goals the person who scored was totally unmarked!! AVB needs to get that sorted out if he hopes to turn the season around. Also, Chelsea if Mata's not on the pitch, there doesn't seem to be anyone who can read the game well enough to pick out the right pass. It was frustrating to watch. I though Torres played well but once again, his team had a hard time getting him the ball. He had a couple good shots but Reina snuffed them out each time. I bet Fernando was cussing him out under his breath. lol

    Good job by Liverpool. They've come a long way from the beginning of last season to now. King Kenny has done a marvelous job. But…I'm guessing Andy won't be the first pick for the next pk. O_o

      I read that Torres wasn't so hot… but I didn't expect much once I read the lineup. Why does AVB torture my brain my putting him out there with players entirely unsuited to his style/vice versa?! It's not like it does the team any good to have several forwards not get the service they specialize in scoring from. I gather why it is important to him to mix players up, but I honestly don't think the team has the interpersonal communication and understanding to do that yet. Wish Torres just fought for it like he did against Stoke… he got himself a MOTM for that performance. Le sigh.

    Villa Maravilla! Go Guaje, we need you in form for the game against the white fluffy ones!

    Nothing to do with results, but does anyone else think that David Luiz has never looked more like Sideshow Bob than in the pic above?

    The first photo………….I would do the same for Benzema or Higuaín .( ;

  9. IrishBlue says:

    I didn't see the Chelsea match, glad I didn't now. I'll leave it at that me thinks…

    Hamsik celebration must be one of the funniest moment I saw this season, for his first attempt for the PK, he celerbated by going down the stairs ( there is stairs next to the goal for some weird reason), went back up celebrating, to find out his PK was ruled out, his expression was PRICELESS, that then he retook it, he sent it off the crossbar.

    Pique copying Xabi's dance move. now can do it like the BOSS! Still quite amusing, he did manage to make the referee "smile" while giving him the card lol

    • coco says:

      It's funny how most people are trying to ignore what happened. Last year with Xabi and Ramos it was a huge deal. When Barcelona does it you don't hear anything. Barca are CHEATERS!!!!

    LOL @ the first photo!

    I am so so proud of my Reds! They played brilliantly and thoroughly deserved to win.

    Wasn't so impressed when the Chelsea players were booing Lucas as he was stretchered off. Thought that was very poor.

    Get well soon Lucas! We need you!
