"Craig Bellamy has literally been on fire."

Apologies, loyal readers, for TDH's silence this week. Football was temporarily displaced by riding horses to the edge of a glacier, then, a day later, getting stuck in the mud on the way back to civilization. Glaciers are worth the trip.

Back to the matters at hand. Today's schedule offered a battle of the ex-Toon strikers. TDH grimaced as that Welsh pest - how has he managed to stay healthy for so long? - showed real flair for Blackburn. And TDH grimaced, too, as Fight Club left poor Brad Freidel to dive around the penalty area in a hopeless personal battle against poor defending.

That said, Friedel should have stopped Lua Lua's goal. He had a clear view of the ball and there was nowhere else the Congolese acrobat could have gone with it. Friedel's taken himself out of the US squad, and maybe he has indeed lost half a step.

In other news somehow linking Tyneside and the US, only snow could stop Brian McBride from sending the Mackems back to the Championship. If West Brom win tomorrow, it's all over. If not, there's still a chance that the Magpies could administer the final blow over at the Stadium of Shite. Well, we can hope.

Finally, is City's Samaras quality, or what? In his first eight matches in the Premiership, he's got 3 goals and 1 assist - all at the ripe old age of 21. He's supposed to be at Maine Road until the summer of 2009, but he'll be signing for a bigger club sometime soon. Mark TDH's words!

gravey won't be happy with that result.

TDH - you had me scared with that long absence.

Gobby's goals were great, but for me the story was portsmouth's performance. superb. if I didn't know better I'd have said they were solid midtable. Pedro Mendes, despite the mistake, was pure class.

Yeah, the locals were raving about Mendes. I hear his cousin Sergio is a pretty good musician, too.

It doesn't take a lot of skill to ride a horse that's been specially trained for tourists, so I won't brag. Tons of fun, though.
