TEVEZ, Now A Carling Cup Winner

Carlos TEVEZ has done it again! The little fellow’s habit of collecting a winners medal continues as Manchester United have defeated Tottenham Hotspurs in the Carling Cup Final 4-1 on penalty shoot out after the match ended in goalless draw.

Carlitos has been an important figure for United throughout this competition. He finishes as the joint top scorer with six goals (including a four goal haul over Blackburn Rover in the quarter final).

Today against Spurs, he was named in the starting line up and played for the full 120 minutes. His first real chance came in the 42nd minute, when John O’SHEA cuts the ball inside to him but his shot from inside the Spurs area was blocked.

His next chance came in the 60th minute, as he tries to back heel Evans' shot past GOMES, but it went wide. He also had another chance in extra time but his header was wide out.

Just like what happened in Moscow, it was down to the penalty shoot out. TEVEZ was United’s second penalty taker and he coolly slotted his into bottom corner. When Jamie O’HARA and David Bentley missed their shots, it looks to be a big mountain to climb for Spurs. ANDERSON did no wrong with his shot as United won the match.

Now back to the million dollar question, will TEVEZ be a United player come next season? Well we will leave that aside for now and celebrate this moment in what could be another glorious chapter in Carlitos career.

Barcelona lose another game. Last few games they have dropped 8 points! ATL-Barca maybe the game of the season so far in La Liga. Messi scored the 2nd for Barca and what a goal it was, he put to sleep a couple defenders with a move and the GK was helpless. Aguero scored 2 goals for ATL Madrid scored the game winner! It was a thrilling thrilling game. Barca have to get their act together, I think they went on cruise control when they were up 12 points.
