League Cup Final : Chelsea 2-1 Arsenal

BBC SPORT | Football | League Cup | Chelsea 2-1 Arsenal

Good battle in the Carling Cup final (lots of puns intended). Arsenal's youth team came up just short against Chelsea who seem to be able to count on Drogba when they need him most. Arsenal had been ahead when Theo Walcott scored his first goal for the club.

The game was marred/enlivened by a mass brawl which seemed incongruous given the concern that had been shown by both player and physio staff alike when John Tarry was knocked out cold by Diaby.

Today the entire sporting world is laughing at this moron seen protesting outside Croke Park on Saturday :

(spot the irony)

For me the events of Saturday mean it's one of those occasions that transcends sport. My Lions shirt means that little bit more to me after the reception England were given.
