Real has won the Copa del Rey by 1-0 over Barcelona. I have a soft spot for Barca so I would have preferred a Barca win but congratulations to RM on a well deserved win. Unfortunately I was not able to watch the match but maybe I can watch their next two encounters to come this weekend and next week.

Zenit FC has been fined $10,000 after a picture was published showing a Zenit fan waving a banana at Roberto Carlos.

The Copa Del Rey Trophy is now the Copa Del Rey Plate after the trophy was dropped by Sergio Ramos while it was on tour and accidently run over by the team bus!

Real found those gaps and was able to capitalize on one toward the end of the 1st ET. They held on in the 2nd ET to win the Cup. The part I watched was rough, high paced and very entertaining.
For the record: IMO, Real Madrid deserved the win.
Barca now has the 2 stage Champion's League semi final to extract their revenge at Real taking one part of the treble away from them. These games should be fun to watch.

Here's a video that shows a close up of the mangled cup...

Fernando Torres has finally scored for Chelsea in their 3-0 win over West Ham as the Hammers face relegation. Liverpool in the meantime won 5-0 over Birmingham City as that club seems to be finally getting it's act together. My boys are 6 point clear of 2nd place Chelsea with four more games to go. I just also want to express my surprise the Schalke is currently sitting in 10th place in the Bundesliga despite being in the final four int he CL. Oh yeah and Gatafe is now Gatafe team Dubai.

And no one was happier and more relieved than Torres...I was beginning to feel sorry for him...
Rough week in the MLS: Seattle Sounders' Steve Zakuani suffered a fractured tibia and fibula in a horrid tackle, and David Ferreira of FC Dallas double fractured his right ankle in a rough tackle...

I tell you Russia 2018 is going to be soooo much fun... Russia will probably win the trophy by default because everybody else would be to scared to show for the tournament.

May be British newspapers should focus on BNP and EDL action in UK than look to east.

Did anyone else watch the Shalke vs ManU game? "Grandad" scored, so did Rooney!

Of course! LOL My boys will go all the way to the final and I hope Barca makes it too! My dream final!

Man U's reserve team won 4-1 for a 6-1 aggregate over 2 games. They'll get to play Barca on the 28th of May. If They can stifle Messi they might win. If they can't, they won't.
