If Phil is around, my commiserations on the Cup Final result - a cruel way to lose such a great game (which I managed to miss - I was in Japan).

My tip for tonight - Barcelona 2 Arsenal 0.

Thanks mate.

Premier League fixtures are out.

Chelsea start with Man City at home.  The Blades have Liverpool at home, just like last time we were promoted.

Phil - the Hammers start with Charlton at home.
