What always amazes me about these games is how competitive teams in lower divisions can be with the EPL teams. I'm sure some of that is selection bias, the TV games are the ones expected to be competitive I assume, but it seems like the 5-0 EPL team over Championship team is an extremely rare result.
You'd still expect City's B team to be able to easily defeat Blackburn, though.
Replay! Just what Pellegrini wanted...
A cursory Google search will provide you with a fairly long list of tabloid misdemeanours that John Terry can definitely be blamed for from a legal perspective, but pointing the finger at the Chelsea captain for sparking the bitter civil unrest currently engulfing Ukraine would be a bit of a stretch in most people's books.
Not so, however, for Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych, who has managed to trace the source of the violent protests in Kiev back to the England captain's heroic-but-decidedly debatable "goal-line clearance" against Ukraine during Euro 2012 -- replays of which showed the ball crossing the line.
Ukraine went on to lose 1-0, a result that knocked them out of the tournament they were co-hosting with Poland, with President Yanukovych citing the Terry incident as the root for the often violent opposition his hardline government are currently facing.
Indeed, Yanukovych was recently visited by two U.S. senators and proceeded, as the Daily Mirror have it, to embark on a "70-minute rant" about his perilous position, which included several references to Terry.
Speaking on his personal blog, Connecticut senator Chris Murphy described Mr Yanukovych's diatribe as "the longest monologue to which I have ever borne witness" before adding:
"[Yanukovych] opens by restating his commitment to joining the EU, but spends most of the speech listing the slights he feels Europe has lodged against him and his country.
"At one point he spends more than a few minutes talking about a disallowed goal by Ukraine in a 2012 Euro Cup match against England.
Walcott trolling the Spurs end. That is brilliant.
The rumor at the time (and of course it may have been only a rumor) was that Spurs asked for Coentrao but he didn't want to go to Spurs.
