Premier League Odds and Sods 7 April 2008

Arsenal Reserves drew Liverpool Reserves 1-1 in a Saturday thriller. Rafa went with Jermaine Pennant and frisky Peter Crouch. Arsene started two English lads. Liverpool should have put the match away earlier. Crouch had a brilliant effort saved. Riise missed a sitter with his footballingly handicapped foot. Benayoun missed another. […]
