daws and seb

you knew this was coming

Two compelling draws over the course of four days, imo. The game on Sunday was a tribute to Dean Richards (only idk how a defender would feel about a 3-3 draw...).

Then there was Champions League on Wednesday against AC Milan. There was the one goal lead from the away game, but what would happen at WHL? There would surely be goals, right?

Tottenham Hotspur sign kit deal with Under Armour

Tottenham Hotspur has signed a five-year deal with US firm Under Armour for it to make its playing kit.

Under Armour will replace Puma from 2012-13, who signed a deal with the north London club in 2006.

The multi-million pound deal is the biggest in Europe for the US company, which also supplies kit for the Wales rugby team. (and Hannover, if you wondered about how they do in football)

The value of the sponsorship has not been revealed, although some reports put it as high as £10m a season.

Too many cards on Tuesday, not enough on Wednesday

While most of us were watching the Champions League games, the Premier League managed to sneak a game in on Wednesday too ... and the ref will be undoubtedly glad that the attention wasn't on him after this error

There is a check list of essentials every referee should go through before taking to the field, as Peter Walton discovered to his cost at Goodison Park last night.

Walton's preparation was found to be less than meticulous midway through the first half, when 19-year-old midfielder Jordon Mutch's enthusiasm got the better of him and he committed a foul that was deemed worthy of a booking.

FIFA actually doing something right
