    Zidane is one of the best players I've ever seen, totally different category of player compared to Pirlo imo. Pirlo was great don't get me wrong, but there are levels and Zidane was at the very top as far as the greatest ever players are concerned. Top 5 for me.

    Keane, Zidane and De Bruyne.

    Riquelme, Gerrard and Lampard all cost more than Keane and Vieira?

    Not hard to build a great team with £6!

    Depends what the rest of the team / formation is IMO. Zidane is obvious choice, leaving you £3 for the rest of the midfield. I'd want Vieira but then it is a question of formation, if he has a back 5 behind him then I might go with one of the £2 players, otherwise I'd be tempted to go with Keane for a bit more defensive cover.

    Really Zidane ought to be £4.

    I'd just stick to 2 in midfield and have Zidane and Kaka and outscore the opponent.

    The Arsenal Invincibles would like to congratulate Liverpool on winning the league and only losing once up until now to Watford 3 - 0.

    If the aftermath of their 2003-2004 season is anything to go by, I'm glad we've lost this season :D

    I'm sure the record points finishing Liverpool squad would love to reciprocate by inviting the 'Invincibles' to touch a European Cup or two at Anfield.

    Record points, invincible etc, still the same medal at the end. Rather have 13 of them instead ;).

    Finally, the day has arrived! Due to the delay of the season I could not order my boss a mug for his birthday which was a few weeks ago but its now scheduled for delivery on Thursday.

    As a Spurs season ticket holder I am sure he will appreciate his tea even more now. :D
