He was thrown out of the Dutch team for a time, don't know if he's selected now. (I hope not :P )

He was only one part of the problem. Hopefully they come back with a bit of their older style :D

If anyone wants to have a practice game (ie; mC), here are tomorrow's fixtures and my predictions. :dance:

Sunday May 13

Chelsea V Blackburn 2-0
Everton V Newcastle 1-1
Man City V QPR 4+ 0
Norwich V Aston Villa 1-0
Stoke V Bolton 0-0
Sunderland V Man Utd 2-1
Swansea V Liverpool 1-2
TottenhamV Fulham 1-1
West Brom V Arsenal 0-2
Wigan V Wolves 2-0

4+ = The team are going to score 4 or more goals.

Just for the record, I played this game for two years on the Guardian site.
You usually get about 6 points. If you get 10 points you've done well. :dance:
The most I ever got was 16 points. 8-)

I'll have a go for a warm up and to show mC (and others) that you can be fairly knowledgeable about footy and still get it completely wrong. :lol:

Chelsea V Blackburn 2-1
Everton V Newcastle 0-2*
Man City V QPR 3-0
Norwich V Aston Villa 3-1
Stoke V Bolton 1-1
Sunderland V Man Utd 1-1
Swansea V Liverpool 2-1
TottenhamV Fulham 1-2*
West Brom V Arsenal 2-1*
Wigan V Wolves 2-0

* These results are wishful thinking on my part really. If they come about, Newcastle will take third place and a Champions League spot for next season, Spuds will come fourth (and be denied Champions League football if Chelski win it :handgestures-fingerscrossed: ), and Arsenal fifth. :D
