Milan miss Sheva...

They might protest to the contrary but Milan could desperately do with a striker to replace Shevchenko if last night's Champs League efforts are anything to go by. The Rossoneri looked good until the final third but only that old stager Inzaghi could find the net. It is early days of course but they looked more in need of Ibrahimovic than neighbours Inter who have clinched his signature. Still, there is plenty of time for a deal to be put together, I guess. Otherwise, they will struggle more than I thought to make up ground in Serie A.

Spare a thought for little Chievo too beaten 2-0 by Levski Sofia in their Champions League debut. Expectations were low for the Veronese but they will have their work cut out to turn things around. I couldn't help looking at the fixture and thinking that should have been Fiorentina, that should have been Fiorentina...

you'd have done better than Chievo too. I feel surprisingly ungloaty, mostly because after all the excitement of the last bit of the season I would SO much rather have got there on the pitch than via the courtroom.

I know, it all feels a bit empty this time around but I'm sure that will pass once we get out of the courts and back onto the field of play...

I saw a Chelsea shirt today with his name on the back and it made me feel sick.

well that's a perfectly reasonable reaction to seeing a chelsea shirt, imo.

I bet Chelsea were happy to have Shevchenko for the Community Shield, though. (Sorry ACT.)

Do you reckon that McLaren wishes he had picked Gerrard as the new England captain rather than Terry?
