    Both teams play gorgeous soccer. City are just relentless, they wear you down mentally with their movement.

    And financially with their slave-gotten oil money!

    If you're going to like pro sports, it's wise not to look too closely at the ownership of any team.

    Wow. They rescinded Holobas' red card from yesterday's match against West Ham, meaning he's available for Saturday's FA Cup final against City. That's a huge turn of events. Holebas is not only Watford's best defender, he's by far their best player when it comes to corners and long throw-ins.

    I'd like to think they'd get punished for so very obviously cheating, but when is there ever justice in this world?

    Leeds whining after every call or non-call is getting a little Barca-esque.

    Derby goes through 4-2 on the night, 4-3 on aggregate. Match finished 9 v 9.

    Derby v. Aston Villa for the final PL spot.

    That's a pretty gigantic upset by Derby. Amazing. Suspect Villa will make easy work of them, but who knows?

    They haven't been much since the 1970s, but Derby were one of the original members of the Football League. Kind of have a soft spot for them. Then again, Birmingham should have a Premier League team. Not much else going for that city.

    Would much rather have Derby up than Villa.

    Me, too. I just think it's strange when the second biggest city in England doesn't have a club in the EPL.

    I would have liked to have seen Leeds come up. That's a team that belongs in the top division.
