  Al's Lip is Split... Yet... Sticks the ball in the Net...

The Warrior!

Shearer does it again, hits a crisp, left footed drive into the back of the net to take Newcastle on to the next round of the Carling Cup...

Justin Whittle, a 4th division defender had the nerve to lay a forearm on wor Al, who required 4 stitches... A red card offense right? Nope, not even a free kick!

Ah well, no worries, he'll heal alright and we move on to the next round... 9 Premiership sides are already knocked out (Chelsea, Tottenham, Man City, Liverpool, Everton, West Ham, Sunderland, Portsmouth and Fulham), here are the 16 teams that remain in the competition...

  1. Aston Villa
  2. Crystal Palace
  3. Doncaster
  4. West Brom
  5. Millwall
  6. Arsenal
  7. Wigan
  8. Blackburn
  9. Reading
  10. Birmingham
  11. Leicester
  12. Charlton
  13. Newcastle
  14. Bolton
  15. Middlesbrough
  16. Man United

5 Non Premiership teams still left, so a fair chance of getting another winnable match and making it to the Quarter-Finals... Hopefully Man United and Arsenal will field weak sides and get knocked out next round, and then who knows!! If we're fit, we've got a chance... No European distraction this year! Draws for the next round are on Saturday...

I think a lot. Some people say I think too much... However, I don't want to be seen as being aloof or pretentious, it's just that I really enjoy philosophical questions and deep thoughts. That's not to say that I don't find pleasure in more down-to-earth or trivial things, like beer and soccer :) I'm happily married with 3 wonderful children. I'm a partner in a technology services company based in Toronto. Myers Briggs says I'm an ENTJ
