Yes, but I don’t think that Man’s fans (MU & MC) like that…:D and there was not fairly for Terry (Chelsea), the same as Vidic...
BTW, Man city v Chelsea : 1-3:D

Another blow for Newcastle a defeat by Geordie managed Hull City at Sid James' Park. Ashley and Wise didn't even bother to turn up.

udosuk I wish the Roosters more luck than Storm had against the Warriors, and hope Storm have more luck that you had against the Broncos. Tough away trips that neither expected.

Years ago it was always NSW's teams who dominated the League titles, then along came the other states (Brisbane & Melbourne) who won the majority of the premierships over the recent years. Perhaps it's the turn of the "other country". I won't be surprised if the Warriors went on to win it all. And I know Australia has blown it big time against New Zealand in Union already.:(

As for the soccer, all I can say is Chelsea has beaten the wrong Manchester team, and in the wrong time (4 months late).:( That said, seeing the Red Devils struggling is still quite satisfying.

And how about those Hull City high-flyers (currently #4 on the ladder, 10 spots above the defending champs)? How many have tipped that team to finish last in their predictions? I know it's still early days but we always love high-archieving underdogs, don't we?:)

Cluj could be a dark horse for a qualifying spot in Chelsea's group, a useful away win in Rome.
Man Utd should deal with Villareal, but Arsenal have a tricky trip to Kiev.
I wonder how the 'Group of Death' will start out. St Petersburg have been doing well, though they are way behind Rubin Kazan in the national league.

My gosh, what a thrilling win for the Storm against the "drinking, bashing, raping" Broncos tonight. It brought back fond memories in 2005 when Nick Davies scored that miraculous goal against the Cats. When the siren sounded the Broncos players behaved just like the Cats players did (heads down, hands and knees on the ground). I'm not a single bit sympathetic to any of them.

And next weekend will be a heck of an AFL Cats-Hawks Grand Final. Glyn must be very glad about this weekend's results.:)

Hope ttt hasn't lost any money on ManU's scoreless draw, or the share markets a few days ago.

Thanks...:D !
No... no, I'm very... very like football but never lost or earn money from that.
Waiting : Chelsea v Man U - tomorrow...:D
BTW, I was drunk so much... and perhaps can't watch Arsenal tonight.

Thanks to All

Matt Sadly I haven't forked out for Setanta yet so I listened online via ABC. After the Hawks win the live scoreboard gave the Storm behind till the 80th minute try.

Good start for Zola at West Ham at the expense of poor old Newcastle again. Mind you the Toon are level with Man U on points.:!: In fact if Spurs beat Wigan and Chelsea win Man U will be joint bottom. Moment of madness: Can you enter the Champions League from the Coca Cola Championship?

Mind you Man U has played two matches fewer than most others. So they need to lose the next 2 matches to be genuinely joint bottom. But thanks the schedulers for giving us devil-haters a chance to see them sink.:) You know it'll be a tough season for them when AIG, the logo on their shirt, got into serious trouble and almost went broke last week.

Chelsea-Man U is underway now and like Glyn I can't watch live (him on Aussie sports, me on Pommie ones) so you guys can tell me the results tomorrow. Also interested about Hull-Everton.

Man U have to squeeze a trip to Japan in later December for the World Club Cup which will cause them to be even further behind in schedule, two games they could do without.

Chelsea 1-1 Man U

Hull 2-2 Everton

Am I alone in thinking that the Large Hadron Collider is responsible for the stock market crash? (I don't know where else I could post this...)
