Today In The Premiership...

Arsenal 1-1 Tottenham. A game so important that I woke up at 7 a.m. to watch it. Actually, that's a lie, but I did set my TiVo thingie. Arsenal's four points behind Tottenham in trying to qualify for a spot in next year's Champions League, and after the thoroughly unfilfilling tie, they still are. Tottenham now controls their own fate down the stretch.

Thierry Henry came off the bench (and forgive my footie ignorance, but why was he sitting out the first half in such a crucial game?) in the 2nd half to get the equalizer for Arsenal. There was a bit of controversy to the Tottenham goal, as Arsenal's manager felt that Tottenham should've put the ball out of play when they saw two injured Gunners down on the pitch. Tottenham claims that they didn't see them. The Arsenal boss says they're lying. Imagine that. Athletes lying to gain an advantage. Ya don't say.


Chelsea 1-2 Liverpool. In FA Cup action, Liverpool takes down evil Chelsea to get through to the FA Cup finals. Thank you, Liverpool. Chelsea winning both the Premiersip and the FA Cup would've made me use profanity, and I use enough profanity, I think.

Portsmouth 2-1 Sunderland. Portsmouth gets a late goal on a penalty to pull themselves out of the relegation zone, the bottom three spots in the league standings. Sunderland, meanwhile, is so deep in the relegation zone, that they should probably be dropped down five or six leagues. Is there a League Eleven?


Newcastle 3-0 West Brom. West Brom controlled play in the first half, but couldn't get one past the keeper. So Newcastle came out in the second half, and just ghetto-stomped them. West Brom is six points behind Portsmouth in the race to stay in the Premiership.
