Chelsea Beat United, Drab Draw in Milan, Arsenal vs. Villa for the FA Cup

Hey there! We hope you enjoyed the weekend's fine fare. Chelsea did their best Chelsea imitation and defeated Manchester United at Stamford Bridge, effectively sealing the title for the Blues. Arsenal and Reading went to extra time before Arsenal eased through to the FA Cup final after a galling gaff by Royals keeper Danny Adam Federici. The Gunners will face Aston Villa in the final. Liverpool looked flat and confused and lost to the Birmingham side 1 - 2. Alas, Stevie G's dream of a Wembley send-off is dead. Let's dig in...

Cue the Phil Collins ballad...

In Spain, Messi scored his 2,440,327th goal as Barcelona cruised to victory. Both of their Madrid rivals won as well, but Real were left with some injury issues. Here are Five Things We Learned in La Liga. The United States? Here are Five Things We Learned in Major League Soccer.

You know what was sad? The Milan Derby. Two of the most storied clubs in world football, currently languishing in Serie A mid-table obscurity, and playing crap football. The match suckedand nobody won. Which is good, because nobody deserved to win. We'll have more domani with Paolo.

That's all we've got for this Monday. Tune in tomorrow for in-depth reporting from The Scribes, as well as Champions League previews.
