A lot of leagues wrapped up yesterday, including for Juve with what I'm told was a fiesty 1-0 win over Palermo. Great bunch o lads.

Is it true Sunderland haven't won on a Monday for more than ten years? Moyes and Ferguson aren't the types to have a little cry over a decision that went against them, so have a little cry over a decision that went against them.
