Messi's a wonder of a player, no doubt about it.

I don't know why you're so weird for Ronaldo. He had a very good game against Barcelona. Hard working, aggressive. But his finishing wasn't very good.

Nevertheless, since coming back from injury Ronaldo has scored 25 goals in 28 games. Not sure why anyone would want to reign that in.

Tense win for Chelsea. Bolton played well. Drogba had a bad game, no touch and he was gang tackled by Bolton. Still not sold on Kalou, lots of pace but not much else. Excellent game by Zhirkov despite spraying blood on all in attendance. And Cole was terrific coming on late, the boy's rounding into form.

Four ahead with four to play. And still, anything could happen. Luckily, an in-form Cole is like getting an extra player. And I hate to jinx him, but a certain keeper seems to have shaken-off his troubles.

Nobody wants to win except for Tottenham (or is it all fixed ). Just when you think Chelsea and Barca have it sown up, both drop points.

But how about those Spurs

I just watched Tottenham - Chelsea and what an entertaining game. Terry didn't deserve that decision but he's become so unlikeable its hard to feel any sympathy.

Spurs are looking like a team with the wind at their backs and surely Bale and Bentley will make the England squad.

Looks like Torres is out of the World Cup and Man U. might do the same to Rooney yet.

We wish - Bale is Welsh though, unfortunately. David Bentley could be good for the side though.

The officiating of that match had me stunned. Of course I feel that Terry deserved it, after all I pull for Spurs. I think that is one of those moments when the official realized that he made a mistake (or two) and tried to make ammends. Unfortunate, and of course I cannot prove it, but it has that appearance.

Great match. Now, if the Spurs can keep this momentum up......

Maybe he could do a reverse Giggs

Still never figured out why the captain of England schoolboys suddenly decides he's Welsh

Where the heck is Sid BTW

Don't see it. Man-how-I-hate-them-freaking-U is up next. I have faith/confidence in the defence, but to be honest I'll celebrate a draw. Man-how-I-hate-them-freaking-U seems to have their dander up. I strongly suspect that this will not be a cake-walk, nor an easy match. BUT, I think it will be entertaining, depending or inspite of, the ref......

With the way we're playing at the moment, unless Wenger asks Fergie for advice on 'the hairdryer' we could easily through our 7 pt lead over you away.

Sid must be dancing a jig (wherever he is) after today's result. Best play of the game was Drogba's amazing control of the ball before crossing it for the first goal.

Gerrard's second against Burnley was a beauty too.

OK...where IS Sid, I hope he's OK (and not stormed off in a huff as he did before )

Can Benitez get any worse? Mourinho's a strange cat though. He's now saying nothing but good things about Italy and Inter, or is that just the euphoria speaking? But, what a strategic genius he was against Barcelona, he out thought Guardiola (who's young enough to learn).

Sid must be dying to say something about this weekend's game. Liverpool are going to be tired so I'm going to have to go with Chelsea squeezing a win, but it might be a humdinger.
