loss to Roma, glory for Arsenal

apparently my decision to get some rest last night was the correct one. Milan visited AS Roma last night and ended their campaign in a very tragic way. they lost to the home side with 3-2 score line. a very sad good bye to Maldini indeed. and as for Becks, he was replaced by Clarence Seedorf in the second half which also means he ended his last day as a Rossoneri with his head down. still qualify for champs league though, thanks for the new policy implemented by Michel Platini. 3 top teams will automatically qualify for next season champs league while the 4th place have to win qualifying matches. anyway, Becks needs to go back to LA Galaxy and bear with fans tantrums for the season and of course, help them win trophies. it is so sad to see him leaving AC Milan without a single glory carved on his chest, but he’s done his best. i had a pretty tiring day yesterday and decided to go to bed earlier than i usually do, and in fact, avoiding the match was a very wise one. looks like i don’t have to watch his rerun today.

i made the headline as if Arsenal were facing their champs league opponent once again. actually, it was a bittersweet news for me. Arsenal managed to wrapped up their last game with a victory over Stoke City assembling a 4-1 score line. apparently, RVP scored brace for the Gunners and helped Arsenal tighten up their grip on the 4th spot leaving Aston Villa qualify for UEFA Cup next season. it is a good news for us to  have Wenger finally got around his head in the final day. but it was Stoke City we were facing off. it was nice to have the last game at home which offered Wenger a huge reception from the fans who have been his loyal supporter since the beginning. hopefully we will see some additional players to the team this summer, and so far we only heard Roque Santa Cruz in his list. but we can other developments this June.
