A good story in the Guardian about Ronaldo's reincarnation as a Brazilian football hero.

See my posts above for his two excellent goals against Santos.

They play the second leg of the state cup final on Sunday at 2:30pm Eastern on GOL TV, for anyone who gets that channel.

Those Barca players continue to piss and moan about Chelsea's play.

You ask me, that's a sign of weakness.

I think Hiddink should employ exactly the same tactics at Stamford Bridge. By halftime Barca will have come completely unraveled and will have lost their discipline. Imagine 11 baby Ronaldos pounding their fists into the pitch in frustration.

Then the game will be Chelsea's for the asking.

There are two ways to look at Barcelona's demolition of Real Madrid on Saturday.

One would be that their 6 goals are a sign that the Bluagrana are an unstoppable scoring machine, the world's best club, and that Chelsea won't have a chance as the Blues are forced to open up at Stamford Bridge.

And indeed, that might be the sane view.

But there is another way to interpret the facts. It might be that a Chelsea side a little buzzed from last week's stymie on the Iberian Peninsula, and this weekend's toying with Fulham, might need a splash of cold water. And what better way to quickly sober-up than to see Barca run riot over La Liga's hottest team?

According to this point of view, Barca's success over Real Madrid is just the tonic Guus' boys needed to refocus themselves to the task at hand.

Funny you're a Leeds lad. I first starting supporting Chelsea when they played Leeds United in the FA Cup in 1970.

I hated Leeds for a few years after that. But now I admire them for what they accomplished and I like a lot of the players from that era: Sniffer Clarke, Billy Bremner, Peter Lorimer.

I'm greatly saddened to see the current state of this once great club. Terrible thing. I hope they can fight their way out of League One.

Norman Hunter bites your legs.

We thumped Northampton 3-0 yesterday

Millwall in the play-offs. Bring your Doc Martens

Arsenal desperately miss the direct football of Andrei Arshavin.

He seems to be the only guy on the team who likes to face the goal. Pity he can't play.
