Champions League group stages begins to come to a close tonight. Given Chelsea and Utd are through the biggest stories are probably that Cech may well be dropped (for which read rested) and Ferguson may be forced to field a Gill in his Utd side.
Man City will apparently sign Phillip Lahm for £15m in January.
Watford beat QPR 3-1 as QPR's early season promise falls properly into decline.
Only other news story I can see is Fabregas calling Chelsea 'average' without Drogba, although I can't see any direct quote using that word. Would be a definite case of stone-throwing from glass houses if true.
