Nasri looks on in horror as Kompany drops Capital One Cup

Vincent Kompany captained Manchester City to their first League Cup title since 1976 on Sunday, and nearly broke the trophy.

Kompany almost dropped the Capital One Cup mid-lift when its detachable base slipped out of the Belgian’s hands. The base didn’t make it, but Kompany went on to hoist the remains as if nothing ever happened.

Samir Nasri was not as calm.


Champions League + Europa League spots sealed

The Barclays Premier League has come to an end and the Champions League positions are set. The Premier League will be sending the same representatives as last year but will be hoping for a much better result as none of them made it through to the Quarterfinals in this year’s competition.

Tottenham will be returning to the Europa League for the second consecutive season and will be joined by Swansea and a relegated Wigan club.

Swansea has secured their birth thanks to a 5-0 victory over Bradford in the League Cup final. Despite the impending relegation, Wigan will be heading to the Europa League group stage courtesy of a 1-0 defeat of Manchester City in the FA Cup Final.


Swansea have had another great season, winning the League Cup and qualifying for Europe next season.

Laudrup played with the rest of his staff in an end of season kick about, showing his skills and dancing past oncoming defenders. Check it out…


Arsenal’s loss via Piers Morgan

Arsenal was stunned by soccer minnow Bradford City in the League Cup on Tuesday, falling in the quarterfinals on penalty kicks.

Piers started out with a positive attitude, happy with the lineup choices. But it was all downhill from there…

He’s always been critical of Arsene Wenger, but more so on Tuesday than ever before.

Finally, a ray of hope, as Arsenal equalized.

And immediately following the loss on penalty kicks, the meltdown:

Arsenal is certainly in trouble, and if Wenger stays on much longer, we fear for Morgan’s health — heartache and anger is a dangerous combination!

But, unlike Arsenal, Piers is off to have a grand ol’ time with the President of the United States. Apparently he’s not too heartbroken…
