Football Update Dec 17th

Liverpool defeated Charlton 3-0 to move into third spot in the league. Alonso, Bellamy and Gerra scored for the good guys who face some tough games ahead (League Cup and FA cup matches against Arsenal and a Champion's League fixture vs Barcelona).
The win at Charlton represented Liverpool's sixth league clean sheet in a row and their second away victory. It seems promising but the chance's of finishing higher than 3rd in the league is still remote.

Other results:

Arsenal 2 Pompey 2 - Silva saves a point for the Gooners. Pompey drop to 5th.
Reading 1 Blackburn 2 - Rovers gain some breathing space.
Wigan 0 Sheffield U 1 - Blades are moving to the middle of the table. Good for them.
Aston Villa 0 Bolton 1 - Trotters definitely want a top 6 finish this season.
Newcastle 2 Watford 1 - Toon on a roll. Hornets are sinking fast.
