Liverpool win epic final

Yesterday's league cup final saw Liverpool edge championship side Cardiff City on penalties. 1-1 was the final score after full time, bringing the game into extra time. Dirk Kuyt's goal in extra time seemed enough to lift the title for Liverpool until the last 2 minutes when Cardiff's Turner scored the equalizing goal, bringing the game into penalties. 5 players from both sides missed the penalties including the Gerrards from both teams (Liverpool's Steven Gerrard and his cousin Anthony Gerrard).Nevertheless Liverpool held their nerves to win the penalty shoot-out 3-2 and clinched their first trophy since 2006's FA Cup. Congrats to Liverpool! Glory days are back? Not too sure about that though.
2011/12 League Cup Winners
As for the premier league, both the Manchester clubs won, making the title race more like a two-horse race after Tottenham's thrashing in the hands of Arsenal. Chelsea and Arsenal are still on track for a Champions League spot after each winning with a 3 goal margin during the weekend.

The highlight of the weekend of Premier League games was non other than the London derby between in-form Tottenham and a troubled Arsenal side. Past match ups between these two clubs always resulted in a high scoring match and this time round, it remained so. A highly entertaining match for the neutrals indeed. 2-0 Tottenham led, Arsenal looked like they were in for a thrashing. But wait....never rule out a match when Van Persie is in, his presence was all it needed for Arsenal to reply with 5 goals, making the game 5-2 Arsenal's way.

What a weekend of football...

Oh wait!! There's still more...This wonderful goal from C. Ronaldo is the icing on the cake to a wonderful weekend of football.
