"They can blame the referee, but they can blame no one but themselves."

No surprises in the aftermath of yesterday's match. The ever-noble Norwegians stayed true to type, with the ref admitting he should have let play continue after Lehmann's ankle-grabbing of Eto'o. But strangely, he said he would have let the German get off with a yellow card. For TDH, that was a red, regardless of the situation.

Back up on Tyneside, Roeder is starting to make his summer plans. There are some doubts about Milner, who might be worth more in cash than as a player, given N'Zogbia's current ownership of the left wing. The Toon need a striker and a couple of defenders, not so much a winger. Defenders. Did TDH say defenders? TDH meant defenders. Did TDH mention defenders? Oh, okay.

Also, the papers say Henry is going to sign a new contract with Arsenal. It's an interesting development. TDH figured he'd be sure to leave if The Goon Show lost; the only question was if they'd won. But no, he seems to believe in Arsene's young gun(ner)s... and to be honest, TDH does, too. They're a promising bunch, a TH has at least four years left to see how far they can go. Besides, he's happy living with his dog up in Hampstead, ain't he?

In other news, the Sun reports Drogba is looking to move back to the continent. He could surely make a fortune pushing around the wussy defenders in La Primera Liga, or picking up scraps in Serie A. But really, does he think he'll be paid more than he is at Chelsea? In TDH's book, he's already a bit overpriced. Chelski will get their European Cup eventually - where else will he go?

Milner? Oh yes, Milner- I had forgotten about him. I'm sure that has a lot to do with the realisation of N'Zogbia's promise as a marauding wide-man, which was one of the highlights of last season for me (I know, there weren't many..)

By the way TDH I have something I want to tell you about... could you please email me via Crinklybee and I will tell you more??

that sounds intriguing....

Dogbrain will probably wind up staying at chelsea - much like Hernan last season. He's too valuable, there aren't many other battering rams as good as him.

Is TH the man or what? Total class, all of his remarks. He understands as much as anyone why English football is so special, and why a loss can be as big as a win in terms of telling you what your teammates are made of. Class, class, class. Long may he prosper at the expense of everyone except the Toon.
