Have some giggles amidst this week's gigantic stress voms.

Chelsea, Man Utd, Spurs and City fans (not that there are any on this community of the latter :p), I'm guessing we're all kinda super-nervous this week? Turn those nervous ticks into smiles with a few (some rather duffly) made Photoshop images from the readers of The Guardian: -

ok, with 2 and 1 matches left to go respectively, anyone want to change their minds about previous predictions for fourth/first place?

Fourth place is going to...


The title is going to...

Personally I'm gonna abstain from voting in the latter one cos kefjdklfjslkfj I'm afraid I'll jinx things =( I know Chelsea are favourites and everything, but, bah, *refuses to bring hubris onto the Chels* I've been saying City will get fourth all season so for the sake of consistency, I s'pose I'll stick with that. Needless to say, it all hinges on tomorrow's showdown though.

Davies loses fitness battle - no World Cup :(

USA striker Charlie Davies, seriously injured in a car crash in Washington last October, will not be fit to compete in the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™, medical staff at his French club Sochaux have announced.

Davies had spoken of his desire to compete in South Africa, months after a deadly car crash seemed to have shattered his FIFA World Cup dreams. The 13 October accident killed one passenger and left the 23-year-old Sochaux star with a broken leg, multiple facial fractures and a lacerated bladder. Doctors said he would be out of action for a year.

Davies will not be fit to return to team action for Sochaux before the end of the season, a team source said, adding that he needed more time to recover. The club, who are sixth from the bottom of Ligue 1, have said they are counting on Davies for next season.

Davies scored two goals in six appearances for Sochaux before the crash.

EDIT: This article is being refuted & Charlie is still aiming to be fit by World Cup. ~Prayer Circle~

Liverpool: Fernando Torres is a doubt for Spain's World Cup opener.

Spain striker Fernando Torres may not be fit for the start of the World Cup, according to medical staff at his club side Liverpool.

The 26-year-old is recovering from surgery to repair knee cartilage torn in the 4-1 win over Benfica on 8 April.

"Whether he will be fit for the first game or not is uncertain," said Peter Brukner who is overseeing his recovery.

"But, if he continues to progress the way he is, he should be fit to play at some stage during the World Cup."

Spain, current European champions and one of the pre-tournament favourites, play their first match in Group H is against Switzerland on 16 June.

WAGs Werk for Umbro

In celebration of the impending World Cup, Umbro have put together some skankalicious sweet outfits for the ladies which apparently consist of nothing but socks and tshirts. In order to help persuade men to buy it, they've roped in WAGs from England, France, Uruguay, Brazil, Italy, Germany and Argentina to appear in adverts wearing their NT gear and, in the case of those who can speak English (basically all of them apart from Mrs. Gila), talking about how wonderful it is.

ETA: There's loads more stuff about the shirts here, at the official site. And if you've ever wanted an Abbey Clancy background for Twitter? Now's your big chance!

chelsea babbies win the youth cup!

chelsea gurls it's time to party?

Chelsea landed the first of a potential three trophies in 12 days after coming from behind to beat Aston Villa in the FA Youth Cup final with a wonder goal from captain Conor Clifford.

Although lacking the profile of the Barclays Premier League or the FA Cup this particular piece of silverware means a lot to a club which has been criticised for their youth development policy in the Roman Abramovich era.

Winning it for the first time since 1961 gave great satisfaction to Chelsea. Carlo Ancelotti was also at Stamford Bridge, as was captain John Terry, the last product from the youth system to establish himself in the first team.

yay chelsea bb's!!!1
