    [garyneville] Gary Neville says Aston Villa's hat-trick hero against Sunderland, Christian Benteke, has been an "absolute saviour" for Paul Lambert's men this season. 
    At 22 years of age, to do what he has done in his first season in the Premier League, is an outstanding achievement.

    Tony Fernandes has launched a scathing attack on Queens Park Rangers players who have taken his money but have failed to keep the club in the Premier League. Fernandes has bit his tongue all year about the team's poor performances, but let rip at the players who he thinks have let the club down badly after relegation was confirmed by Sunday's 0-0 draw at Reading.
    It was probably the low point for me when I saw the reaction of some of the players. It has shocked me because it is something that is alien to me. Whatever I have done as a job, for whoever has hired me, I put in 150 per cent. It's in my character. If I am taking someone else's money, then I am going to work bloody hard for that person. It's an alien concept to me that someone takes someone's salary, doesn't put 100 per cent in, thinks: 'Oh, we lost. No big deal. What club are we going to tonight?' That is an alien concept to me. It wasn't right to say anything during the season, but I noticed everything and I am a little bit wiser for it now.

    Here's more on the report from FIFA's ethics committee into the scandal involving collapsed marketing partners ISL which named Joao Havelange and two former executive committee members Ricardo Teixeira and Nicolas Leoz as receiving bribes. All three have since resigned from FIFA. The report by FIFA Adjudicatory Chamber chairman Hans-Joachim Eckert also calls current FIFA president Sepp Blatter's handling of the scandal "clumsy" but says it did not breach ethics rules. Blatter immediately issued a statement welcoming that he had been cleared of misconduct.
    I also note with satisfaction that this report confirms that 'President Blatter's conduct could not be classified in any way as misconduct with regard to any ethics rules'. I have no doubt that FIFA, thanks to the governance reform process that I proposed, now has the mechanisms and means to ensure that such an issue - which has caused untold damage to the reputation of our institution - does not happen again.

You can take a look at our preview of the game, with Cristiano Ronaldo having been passed fit.

You can also have a read of Niall Quinn's thoughts ahead of this week's semi-finals, with a place at Wembley on May 25th up for grabs.

    Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed he has plans in place to improve his Manchester United squad in the summer. Despite not having the spending power enjoyed by the likes of Manchester City or Chelsea, Ferguson is confident that United can be competitive in the summer transfer window.
    Hopefully the players we bring into the club in the next year or so will be of the quality we need. We're competitive in the market - we're not Chelsea or Manchester City in terms of money but we're competitive. We've been doing a bit of work on that over the last three or four months, targeting who the players are that we feel could enhance us, make us better or help us maintain the level we're at.

  • [bn] Sam Warburton will captain the Lions in Australia, no place for Jonny Wilkinson or Chris Robshaw in the squad
    4/30/2013 10:14:43 AM

    Wales' Sam Warburton has labelled it 'unbelievable' to be named British & Irish Lions captain for this summer's tour to Australia.
    Warren gave me a call a week ago Sunday, so it's been nine or ten days since I found out. It's been the hardest thing I've had to keep a secret. It was unbelievable. It's an accolade which very, very few people are able to achieve. To be able to have the opportunity to do this is unbelievable.

    [stuartbarnes] Stuart can't believe Jonny WIlkinson was left out of the squad by Warren Gatland if he made himself available for the trip.
    I find it mystifying to be honest as your second fly-half comes on to close the game out, and there's none better at doing that than Wilkinson. He has his weaknesses but who else would you want coming on for the final 10 minutes with the game level.

    With Christian Benteke adding a couple of million to his price tag after a well-taken treble on Monday night, John Nicholson wonders just how the Premier League's top clubs failed to spot the Belgian's obvious potential in the first place. Benteke joined Aston Villa from Genk last summer and he has been linked with a string of rival Premier League clubs following his impressive debut campaign in England.
