More apparent American interest in buying into English football, this time from rapsters P-Diddy and Jay-Z. No clue why the former is interested in Crystal Palace, apart from saying he "likes the name". As for Jay-Z, his target is Arsenal, whom he started supporting in the days of Thierry Henry: "Ever since then I've been a big fan of the club," he claims. The artist formerly known as Shawn Carter is now an eminently respectable businessman, but his, ahem, rap sheet includes shooting his brother at the age of 12 and other incidents involving knives and pistols along the way. So the Gunners seem somehow appropriate. If they're not interested there's always Sheffield United, aka the Blades.

With Barcelona's Gerard Piqué sent off for a wild and late challenge on Getafe defender Rafa midway through the first half, this looked like being the day Real, who hammered Espanyol 3-0, closed the five-point gap at the top of La Liga, but Lionel Messi, Xavi, and Andres Iniesta played second-half keep-ball and so Barça made it 21 games unbeaten this season, prevailing 2-1.

'There is no great genius without a touch of madness', said the Roman philosopher Seneca. When Real Madrid's sage and some-time professional footballer Guti found himself on the edge of the six-yard box in front of goal against Deportivo la Coruña and with only keeper Daniel Aranzubia to beat on Saturday night he must have known the sane thing to do was score and put his side 2-0 up.
