A 2nd Arsenal mauling of Newcastle in 4 days. Dennis looked to be enjoying himself up in the stands tho - probably thinking about all that lovely extra poppy he's gonna earn for doing not a great deal. Except get on Keegan's nerves that is. I just can't see the pair working...despite what Kev has been saying.

Pompey should provide a test for us tonight, but i'm sure we can prevail on home soil...home soil that's about to be ripped up and replaced at the cost of £250,000 cos it's looking a bit shabby!

You'd have thought with Champs Lge qualification a real possibility for several clubs, O'Niell might have strengthened in the window, if they're going to get anyone, they'll have to be quick!
yeah he's frustrating because when he buys a player he likes to know all about them and whether they have the right mentality, hunger and focus ect.. which is fair enough but it means it he takes ages to complete any deals. although at least it avoids any panic buys, such as, ahem, djemba-djemba!

its a shame cahill is leaving, he's a good player and a fine young english talent. as long as he doesn't go to birmingham i'll be happy...

looks like we're signing one of english footballs forgotten talents today, wayne routledge. could be interesting

i hope united destroy pompey tonight

cashley cole has been caught cheating on the gorgeous, beautiful Cheryl, what an odious detestable little creep he is, 1 person, & 1 person alone exists in his horrible little world, she should kick him straight into touch, & if she needs a shoulder to cry on, she's more than welcome at mine, I'll get the missus to sleep in the spare room!

If i was a gambling man ( which i am ) i'd say C Ronaldo for golden boot in euro championships with Portugal winning it, the guy in on fire.

What a stunner from Ronaldo last nite! Everyone in my local was applauding...even the Arse fans! Can't understand how it ended only 2-0?!

27 goals this season...and counting!

Capello should announce his preliminary squad for the Switzerland game later today. Should be interesting. I'm sure Becks will be given his 100th cap, then that should be the end. Thanks Becks and goodbye!

Fully agree. And to be honest, in those 2 games back for England when Mclaren recalled him he was on great form. But there's no way once the season in the US has kicked off again, that we can have him commuting across the pond for our games. And as we know, to expect him to keep himself at the top playing in their league just cannot be done.

But we will never forget that last minute goal against Greece....or the red card in 98!

i won't shed a tear if becks doesn't get his 100th cap. yes he's been good for us but i respect cappello a lot more than our last excuse for an england manager. this guy knows what he's doing and he won't ever pander to the media just for something sentimental like beck's 100th cap.

anyhow i still think that he still might get that 100th cap, he just isn't anywhere near match fit yet.

I'm still suprised cos I thought he'd give him one last game to get this cap and then leave it at that - especially as it's just a friendly.

i think it could be the other way round. cappello might see him as vital asset for the qualifiers in the future but he simply isn't fit enough to play right now. i like to think that cappello is intelligent enough to leave no room for sentiment. also it might be a bit patronising to becks to just wheel him out one last time as if he's some sort of circus act. he's a great player and cappello doesn't need to give him a run out in a friendly to see this.

i think david bentley is the best and most promising right sided player we have right now and i'd like to see him be given 90 minutes in england colours to see what he can do and maybe cappello is thinking the same.

as a column on football365 read today, i think this omission is becks' best shot of having a place on the team.

it's not like he really got axed from the team. the coach just doesn't think he's match fit, it's as simple as that.
