Chelsea Win, Barcelona & Atlético Draw, Monday Night Foortball, Half-Yank Julian Green, Franck Ribéry Is Pissed

And a happy Monday to you. And a happy MLK Day to you. Yesterday, Chelsea won comfortably over Manchester United. United had their moments, but didn't have what it takes to get a result. They're still a mess on the defensive side. Dominic Fifield was at Stamford Bridge. He says the United players looked haunted. Scary stuff. Phil McNulty says that reality bites for Moyes and his boys. Paul Hayward says it's the end of an eraMichael Cox talks tactics. And David Hytner learned five things at the match and has graciously offered to share them with us. Cheers.

Elsewhere in the Premier League, Liverpool drew against a suddenly fluid Aston Villa, Manchester City, Arsenal, Palace, and Tottenham claimed victories, and Newcastle won at West Ham. Here's your lot:

Over in Italy, Super Mario helped Clarence Seedorf get off to a winning start in Milan. Neighbors Inter lost, and Juventus maintained their top-dog status with another win. Here's a review.

Down in Spain, Real Madrid were the big winners as Barcelona and Atlético Madrid could only manage draws in their respective fixtures. Real are on a roll, baby. Watch out.
Diego finds it tough at the top...
Oh, the insufferable transfer window. Why do you toy with our emotions so? The Mill. Plus One.

Monday Night Football! It's an interesting one today as Pepe Mel takes over at West Brom. The Baggies host Everton. West Brom need points to stay clear of the drop zone while Everton have the opportunity to leapfrog Spurs and Liverpool and get back into fourth. 3pm EST on NBCSN.

Monday Musings! Gab is musing about Man Utd's mistakes, Real momentum and Liverpool's progress. Muse right along with him, why don't ya?

Ever heard of Julian Green? No. Nor us. Turns out he was born in Florida and plays for Bayern Munich. Rafael Honigstein has more on the young buck.

Franck Ribéry is not happy about not winning the Golden Ball award thingy. "I won everything, with the team and individually. Ronaldo won nothing," Ribery apparently said in an interview with Munich's TZ newspaper. Interesting take on things.

Till Tomorrow.
