A Saturday without the Premier League...what's a girl to do? Well, I've got the archives of Kickette on standby, and of course there's some MLS action tonight, but first I took a look around the internet to bring you some interesting stuff.
Trashy Trash From The Tabloids: Gerard Houllier and Kevin MacDonald will work with Steve Staunton to form a 'management dream team'. The idea of Houllier and K-Mac is floating about in various guises. If Villa are to hire a Director of Football, I really wish they'd be risk-takers with their manager--someone young, fresh and different. But we'll see soon if this is really what they've got up their sleeves.
James Collins Took An Elbow To The Face: Didn't watch Montenegro v Wales? I don't blame you. It was pitiful. James Collins was responsible for Montenegro's only goal, which won them the match. Even worse, he took an elbow from Miodrah Dzudovic which sent him to hospital. Luckily no fracture and he should be back with Villa next week.
Out To Lunch During England v Bulgaria: Never fear, Graham has you covered...extensively. He writes a ton, and even if you despise and abhor The Chels, he covers quite a bit that has nothing to do with the club. Read his post-match report on We Ain't Got No History.
Andrey Arshavin Is Not A Vampire: And because we love all things meerkat around here, a quick piece from Dirty Tackle on Andrey losing his sparkle.
