We are all tired of the fuss over R.B. and SAF,its over,really.Try again next season,and know SAF don't fight clean amigo,he's not the manager of the diablos for (no. 34) NOUGHT! Its was a decent season,I'm glad we'll be rid of Newcastle,they run a football club like a bar where all the staff are recidivist alcoholics and the owner is a teatotaller,he doesn't know the first thing about a good pint. For those who take shots at the BBC,you give them too much credit.They have little or no say in the outcome of the title race,or Liverpool wouldn't be 20 yrs adrift.Apparently,only United and Barcelona have ref bending abilities.If that doesn't work,well they've the players to do the job the usual way.Look where its got them?That should make for a cracker of a final,with SAF and Pep getting half a ref each.

This follows on from Pavlyuchenko's disgraceful denigration of the flower of English womenhood. Who do these Russians think they are? They should be dragged through the streets by the bolsheviks.And don't think I haven't noticed that "Redknapp" is code for "commie sleeper".Watch this lot. They're out to destabilise the nation. If they begin calling for evening kick-offs to be put back from 19.45 to 19.17 - be afraid. Be very afraid.

Benitez showed a total lack of respect for the best English Manager of all time. His bitterness shows he will not succeed as he doesn't have any real balls or humility. The best team finished second, hey ? United will win the League AGAIN next season, while two man team Liverpool will be lucky to finish Top 4 as Arsenal and Chelsea will easily take them, and Benitez will get the sack.......can't wait !!

I read review of the week every week and have to say this is your best work by far. Unlike some of the other haters commenting earlier, I loved the bricking it line. It's a tough crowd you're playing to this week - just can't keep some people happy can you? Anyways, keep it up and pass on the respect to the sub who chose the pic of Rafa and SAF. Classic.

When SAF said his side was the better side after RAFA won by 4-1 at OT you guys did not see anything wrong, now you talk about RAFA say MU only have more points. Let us be fair. RAFA has congratulated the MU team. I do not see why you want him to start congratulating SAF as if he scored any of the goals that won MU the championship. I won't be supprised if one of you journalists come out to criticise RAFA for not congratulating VDS for keeping those clean sheets in the PL.

Thu 21 May 2009 19:46:27 GMT+1 NEARPOSTHEADER http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/chrischarles/2009/05/review_of_the_week_27.html?page=55#comment33 I have to say that this season has hardly been great entertainment - top scorers Roanldo and Anelka with how many? 15-16 apiece? The usual supects occupy the top 4 places. Spurs and Villa retire feebly from the EUFA Cup. The Man U v Liverpool thing was rather lame; can't Sir Alex and Don Rafa have it out in the car park - that'd really liven things up. Sir Alex is the supreme wind-up merchant and I'm surprised other managers like Rafa haven't learned that by now.The highlights were the 4-4 draws and, in particular, Bentley's incredible 45-yarder - shame he's done nowt else all season. Even my team, West Ham, failed to live up to the dire expectations and managed mid-table mediocrity with games to spareI give English classes here in Mexico and a 15-year old student told me yesterday that he won't be able to take his class next Wednesday because he'll be in Rome to watch the Champion's League Final! His dad happens to be mega-rich and famous singing star. Git.

I derive a certain amount of satisfaction from seeing BBC bloggers replying to my comments personally, and since you're the best in the business in this regard, if you please...(yes, I have no life) Thu 21 May 2009 18:25:18 GMT+1 collie21 http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/chrischarles/2009/05/review_of_the_week_27.html?page=50#comment30 Re making this funny and telling jokes, and life etc, If you have to try it isn't funny..... just ask Newcastle :-) Thu 21 May 2009 18:19:52 GMT+1 collie21 http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/chrischarles/2009/05/review_of_the_week_27.html?page=48#comment29 Nice round up. I think the Ronaldo to Madrid story is a non starter. The premiership has become the eldorado of football, look at the likes of players leaving mid table clubs to go to madrid for example, it's unheard of. This is the golden age of the premeriship. In a year or 3 some story will break, some one will do something stupid or TV will be banned and it will all fall down. In the meantime delighted to hear your team will be lining up a 4 4 2 drive in Bennton racers, it's about the only way the will beat the opposition is if they are fast enough. Flavio knows zero about football thinking soccer players are all machines.....come to think of it, you haven't signed anyone from Stepford by any chance? Best of luck next season, really enjoyed reading you this year. I have to say I am pleased with how you are able to take a joke and criticsm of your blog unlike the cheif sportswriter who removes 2 in 10 comments from his blog because he doesn't like them. Would love to see an open game for the Champions league, but I think Henry will blaze his penalty over the bar, and Ronaldo will have histeronics of epic proportions. It will be a boring match but not one I would miss.

"If United have more points, it only means they have more points," he added helpfully.In which case, could Liverpool kindly do the decent thing and hand back their 1976 league title, which morally belongs to QPR?

Let us get £70+ million for him, and invest that money into other talented young players who we can develop just like we did with him. It was mainly United's development of him that has made him the player he is today. And when he's at Real Madrid NOT winning trophies, then he can look back with regret at pressing so hard for the move.

What are they putting in the water at Arsenal these days? Priceless stuff from Wenger and Arshavin. 10/10 to Arsene for effort, it reminds me of the sort of bizarre excuse Edmund Blackadder would come up with. As for Arshavin, they should make him drive the Arsenal womens team bus for a season.Plea to other posters, please let's not have another 500 post Liverpool v Man Utd flame off.
