So after all that excitement, today promises to be a bit of dull affair. About as dull as my dentist visit yesterday. Yaaaay, clean teeth! Unless you're into the whole Europa deal, but you're not that weird, are you?
BUT WAIT. Here comes the FA Youth Cup and Chelsea's semifinal first leg (new this year: two-legged semis) against none other than Arsenal. Kickoff at the customary 19:05, live from Stamford Bridge on Chelsea TV. We mustn't let Arsenal win any sort of trophy, right? The second leg follows next Thursday with the winner to meet Fulham in the final. So join us here to cheer on RLC & Co. UP THE BLUES!
