Honors Even In Madrid, Newcastle Controversy, Pellegrini Is A $@%#%* According To Alan Pardew, Milan Sack Allegri, Monday Night Football

Whew! And a very happy Monday to you and yours. Let's begin at St. James' Park where one of the best strikes you'll ever see was deemed not legit. Incorrectly. Louise Taylor usually reports from Newcastle and today is no different. She was there to watch a very eventful match that was eventually won by Manchester City. Not before Samir Nasri left on a stretcher (he's out for eight weeks) after being hacked by Yanga-Mbiwa. He only saw yellow. Not the best day out for Mike Jones and his crew. Nor Alan Pardew. Kristan Heneage has Three Things to say about all of it.

To be fair, Pardew did apologize for calling Pellegini "a fucking old cunt." Did he have a choice?

Meanwhile, in Stoke, Liverpool prevailed thanks to a handball, followed by a dive, followed by a penalty. It was an engrossing match that ended 3-5. Not surprisingly, Luis Suárez played really well. Richard Jolly was at the Brittania.

Here's all you need to know from the weekend in the Premier League where Manchester United, Tottenham, Chelsea, West Ham, Everton, Sunderland, and Southampton emerged victorious. There were no draws.

Unlike the matches in England and Wales, The European Match of the Weekend ended scoreless. Barcelona and Atlético Madrid provided some exciting fare, but nobody could find the net. Jonathan Wilson reports on a match played with ferocious intensity. As does Graham Hunter. Here's even more on that match plus a look at the other weekend action in Spain.

Well, AC Milan lost to Sussudio (some dude named Berardi scored four). They now sit 11th in Serie A, 30 points behind Juventus. That is simply unacceptable. So, they fired Allegri. Rumor has it The Diving Italian Inzaghi might get the call to take over.

Monday Night Football! Today we've got Aston Villa vs. Arsenal. The battle of the "A" teams. Teams that begin with the letter "A". Right. Check it out at 3pm EST on NBCSN. We're closing SSN Headquarters early in order to do just that.

OMG!! We almost forgot The Mill and your Plus One! Never!

That Ballon d'Or crap is today. We don't care.
