Another Final Four

If one conference were to get three teams into the Final Four (I think that the '85 Big East was the only one that managed to do it) you'd probably say that it was a pretty damn good conference.

In that case, the English Premier League must be one pretty damn good soccer league.

Liverpool's 1-0 win over PSV Eindhoven today at Anfield made it three of the four European Champions League semifinalists from the EPL.

Yesterday, Michael Essian's late goal brought Chelsea into the final four (and a date later this month with Liverpool).

Most impressive of all, though, was Manchester United's breathtaking 7-1 dismantling of Roma at Old Trafford yesterday. Doubles by Cristiano Ronaldo and Michael Carrick highlighted the Reds' destruction of the Italians.

ManU has led the EPL all season, and a win this month against AC Milan will give them a chance to prove it against one or the other of their most hated enemies. Bloody 'ell!
