Wembley Gets Champions League Final and Other Stories

It took a little time, but the Champions League Final is heading to Wembley Stadium.

It took a little extra time, and a vote by parliament to exempt tax rules on players who would play in the final, for Wembley to get the final that will be played in 2011. What it also means is that Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium will have to wait awhile to host a European final.

It’s was a busy day for Sam Allardyce. First after telling Manchester City no about Roque Santa Cruz, then made a 2.8 million pound offer for El-Hadji Diouf. With the way Allardyce spoke today, it leads me to believe Santa Cruz is going to go this summer. As for Diouf, don’t you have enough forwards right now or did one slot open up with Matt Derbyshire’s loan move to Greece?

Well Salamon Kalou has alot of explaining to do over his handcuff gesture.  One thing that a football pitch shouldn’t be used for is to show support for or against anything political.

If Gary Megson wants to get on the Bolton supporters good sides, calling them pathetic wouldn’t be such a good idea.

How original from Liverpool. Reporting Tottenham for ‘tapping up’ Robbie Keane just seems juvenile.

Paul Robinson has seen his red card rescinded. At least the FA got something right.
