Ugh... Arsenal 0-0 Sunderland

Gunners drop 2 points they were counting on, and are now 2 full games out of the top 4 with 2/3rds of the season complete. Hello UEFA Cup?

"Leading British bookie suspended bets on the firing of Rafael Benitez after receiving more than 300 calls within a couple of hours on Wednesday seeing the odds go from 20/1 to 2/1. A spokesperson for William Hill stated: "We'd be very surprised if Rafa was still Liverpool manager next Sunday at noon".

Bookmaker Sky Bet has already opened bets on his potential successor, former club star Kenny Dalglish currently leading Jose Mourinho as the favorite."

You may not be wrong after yet another drawn game without scoring against Fulham

It was really funny watching the Middlesbrough's attitude go from, "even up a goal there's no way we're gonna beat Liverpool" to, "well, maybe we can beat Liverpool", to, "I think we might beat Liverpool", to, Holy shit, we're going to beat Liverpool!"

I guess since Liverpool hasn't a chance of winning the league at this point no one cares about this thread anymore.
Footballer Ashley Cole arrested

Chelsea and England footballer Ashley Cole has been arrested on suspicion of being drunk and disorderly.

Mr Cole was held after swearing at police officers outside west London's The Collection bar and restaurant, BBC crime reporter Ben Ando said.

Police said a 28-year-old man was held in Brompton Road, South Kensington, at about 0215 GMT.

He was taken to a police station and given an £80 fixed penalty notice and released at about 0530 GMT on Thursday.

No further action will be taken, a Metropolitan Police spokesman said.

Our correspondent said: "Cole was held after swearing repeatedly at police and refusing to calm down after emerging from The Collection in South Kensington at around 2am."

The nightclub is about 1.3 miles (2km) from Chelsea's Stamford Bridge stadium.

Nightclub manager Burim Maraj said Cole had been out drinking with Chelsea and England captain John Terry and several other Chelsea team-mates.

He said the venue closed at midnight but the group stayed inside eating a meal.

A spokesman for Chelsea FC said: "We are aware that Ashley was detained last night. We will want to establish all the facts before commenting."

Prior to his arrest, Cole had joined Chelsea's first team squad and more than 300 charity workers, celebrities and supporters at a fundraising event for two childrens' charities.

His wife Cheryl, singer with Girls Aloud, is currently climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa for Comic Relief.

I was shocked when I saw the result. They finally carried over their momentum from the CL.

Villa in danger of dropping out of the race for a CL spot.

Arsenal are really starting to fly as well

The Premiership is starting to get interesting again, just as we thought United had it wrapped up.

Make no mistake, I'm fully convinced United will win the league, I just think that now they will have to focus on it a bit more than they might have otherwise, and their chances of winning other trophies might suffer as a result.
