Odd Cesc Red, Sid Lowe on Barcelona, Middlesbrough Misspelled, Copa Libertadores, BBC Qatar Account

Where is Middlesborough?
Well, hello! Yesterday's match in the Premier League did not go as expected. Hopefully you were able to catch some of it. West Brom won 3 - 0 and Cesc Fabregas saw red for kicking the ball at the Bromies. It was all very weird. Stuart James was at The Hawthorns and filed this report. John Brewin has Three Points.

So, just how does Cesc's red stack up to the 10 dumbest red cards in world football? Let's have a look.

The Premier League season is coming to a close, and tactical guru Michael Cox is already looking back. Here are his Performances of the Season.

Meanwhile, in the United States and Canada, the season is just getting going. That's because, you know, we do things differently here. 'MERICA! Anyway, Jeff Carlisle talked to Benny and Charlie about how the MLS has changed, and Bird's got a Weekend Review along with Power Rankings. More? How about L.A.'s stadium and what it means for Minneapolis?

Now is the time on SSN when we Scribe!

Where? Germany. Who? Raphael Honigstein. What? Bayern down tools, Schalke in meltdown and monkey business for Stuttgart

Where? France. Who? Julien Laurens. What? PSG on course for historic season 

Where? South America. Who? Tim Vickery. What? Crucial quarterfinal clashes loom in the Copa Libertadores

Where? Germany? Who? Andy Brassell. What? Gladbach plan for more success after reaching Champions League

How about a look at Premier League ineptitude? Should be fun, right? It is. Not fun? Getting arrested for attempting to document the shitshow that is Qatar 2022. We noted the arrests previously. The BBC's man has now released his account of his trip.

Podcast! Well, listeners, the end is in sight, and on today's Football Weekly, AC Jimbo has Barry Glendenning, Jonathan Wilson and Paul MacInnes doing their damndest to make sure it doesn't end just yet. We start with the final piece of the relegation jigsaw. Hull occupy the dreaded 18th place going in to the final weekend, having had a shocking week both on and off the pitch. Newcastle, meanwhile, went down 2-1 at QPR. If only Middlesbrough and Norwich could replace them both … Away from the Premier League, we compile the Football Weekly A to Z, covering everything from the A League to Zenit St Petersburg's league triumph. We'll need your help please, listener, to fill in the blanks. Finally, we hear from Sid Lowe about Barcelona's title triumph and the latest on David de Gea's much-mooted move to Real Madrid.

Raheem Sterling wants to leave Liverpool. Phil McNulty says it really wouldn't be a big deal if he were to do so.

And finally...Oops!
