Soccer Miscellany

Stalwart Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard ended an already fantastic weekend--Liverpool knocked Chelsea out of the FA Cup semifinals 2-1--by being named the Professional Footballers' Association's Player of the Year. What a start to the week for this low-key, always engaging and reliable midfielder. I've got high hopes that he'll have a good World Cup with the rest of the England squad.

Meanwhile, in another bizarre news item involving "sick voyeur" Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, Tottenham manager Edgar Davids has accused Wenger of manhandling him in the tunnel after the match, but Metropolitan Police claim they saw nothing. Huh. That Wenger. If he's not peeking in your windows he's throwing punches at you the second the coppers turn their backs.
