Player Watch

Today`s first game saw Rochdale take on Darlington in the League Two Play-Offs Semi-Final. This game turned out to be the last time to see David Stockdale before he officially joins Fulham.

The 22-year old didn't have the best of games, looking very dodgy at times. However he was doped up on pain killers to get through a foot injury he picked up in the last game of the season.

Rochdale won the game 2-1 to force it into extra-time where it went all the way to penalties. Rochdale scored all their penalties to advance to Wembley with Stockdale not looking like saving a single one. More due to the quality of the penalty kicks than the youngster`s own efforts.

The other game to bring up some interest is Rangers Vs Motherwell where Cousin played the full ninety minutes. The Gers star almost completed a switch to the Cottage in January only for FIFA to put their foot in (Diarra anyone??!?!). This was the first time I have really seen the 30-year old and I have realised he is more than just a quick striker. He is actually very good in the air! With Roy reported to still be chasing Cousin it seems to me he could actually be a good signing!

Oh and a quick word out for Sean Davis who finds himself left out of the FA Cup Final sixteen! Diop is on the bench.

Have a good weekend all!

Cardiff have played well in the first half and probably don't deserve to be behind!

I know, I was watching the game as well and I have this impression in my mind of the Sky Sports Chief Executive blowing his top in frustration at the biggest cup game of the season going down the pan!!
