Not for years has the FA Women's Premier League been able to boast of an exciting finish, but the climax to the season today could hardly be better. For once Arsenal, handicapped by defections to the United States and at least one pregnancy, have not run away with the title. They recently had an extraordinary unbeaten run of 108 League games ended by Everton, and must win the return match on Merseyside this afternoon to secure a sixth successive title and a 32nd trophy in 22 years as manager for Vic Akers, who is now retiring. Everton remain unbeaten, though they left it late in the penultimate game on Wednesday before Natasha Dowie scored a hat-trick in the last five minutes to see off the splendidly named Doncaster Belles. It will be a tense afternoon for Akers; he cannot attend the game as he will be on duty for Arsène Wenger's side at the Emirates Stadium, in his day job as kit manager. The Football Association are launching a semi-professional women's summer league from 2011. Meanwhile, watch out next season for Chelsea, who have finished as high as third for the first time by investing heavily. Sound familiar?

The soundtrack to indie hit Juno pushed 26-year-old Adam Green and his Moldy Peaches lyricist Kimya Dawson into the mainstream. When the then-mid-teenager and twentysomething Dawson first joined forces, they were part of the anti-folk scene that gives folk songs a punky edge. But the indie fans here hoping for cutesy Moldy Peaches songs might be disappointed; the duo have made a pact not to play their band work at solo shows. Besides, Green is keen to show off the crooning baritone he has been developing ever since.

Along with drugs, dogs and dramatic screaming fits, they love Absolutely Fabulous in the Osbourne household. "My nickname is Saffy," admitted Aimee Osbourne in a rare interview. "Sometimes... I can't believe what mum says or does when she's being really dramatic. And then I think, 'No, she's definitely out of her mind'."
