    I think you're being a bit generous describing it as 'playing'.

    In Liverpool's long term interest, it might be better if they didn't - then Houllier would surely get the chop, leaving the way open for (hopefully for L'pool) O'Neill or someone of that calibre.

    I'm not sure about that. Hopefully we can get the Champions League spot and a new manager, though I'm doubtful of both.

    Take note of the fact that that was the first penalty conceded at Old Trafford by Man Utd in the Premiership in more than ten years.

    What does that tell us? :rolleyes:

    Actually it was the first penalty SCORED against ManU at Old Trafford for ten years. 3 have been missed/saved.

    It tells us that ManU do most of the attcking at Old trafford and the other team rarely get into ManU's penalty area.

    That's exactly what I meant, actually. Not in caps, though.

    So...10 years = roughly 200 games...= 1 penalty about every 65 games. Or, if you like, 1 penalty every 3 years...

    :rolleyes:

    Woo, as a Newcastle fan i am very happy.
    Plus if Arsenal draw or defeat Tottenham (currently 2 - 1 after 62 minutes) they win the title.

    Woohoo, this essentially clinches that we won't be relegated this year. Been a tough year.

    Congrats to Arsenal for a tremendous championship-winning season. I have not liked the fact that Liverpool were nowhere near them but at least neither were Man Utd. However they've still got to win the Champions League to be called a truly great team.
