It’s just a matter of hours until the biggest cheesefest since… well since last year’s Eurovision Song Contest. After a couple of semi finals the line-up is now known.

Champions League: Late Gamble on Chelsea
2008-05-21 20:25:00
A rush of late money for Chelsea has seen their odds shorten to lift the Champions League tonight to just 11/10 (888 Sport, BetDirect, BlueSq, Boylesports, Sk ybet, Stan James). To win the game in 90 minutes, Chelsea are now 9/4 (Betfred). United are 13/8 (Bet365). But I still fancy the draw at 21/10 (Skybet).

Corruption in Football: How Safe is Our Game?
2008-05-12 22:45:00
There has been much debate in recent weeks about the declining standard of refereeing in Scotland. Performances and decisions have been so inept they’d make George Bush blush. Incompetent? - ‘Yes’. Cheating? - ‘Don’t be daft! - Not in this country’ Things came to a head somewhat following Mike McCurry’s ‘officiating’ at Ibrox on Saturday when Rangers beat ...
