(1) Liverpool 4, Arsenal 2. Bring on Chelsea. Again.

(2) Eamon Dunphy, Graeme Souness and Bill O’Herlihy ganging up on Liam Brady afterwards. Brady did not look happy, did he? Maybe that explains why he let the cat out of the bag about the Chelsea result before RTE screened the highlights. (Thanks to Ivor for the YouTube link)

(3) Shameless. While it has never reached the peerless heights of the first series (when series creator Paul Abbott was still involved in scripting and sculpting every episode), the current series has been hugely enjoyable. The last episode was a hoot, tying up a few loose ends and throwing a surreal dream sequence into the mix too.

(4) Nighty Night with Vincent Browne. It continues to be the most watchable news show on the box for probably all the wrong reasons. I meant to write about this last week when Vinnie had Nell McCafferty, Senator Mary White (she wants to be president, you know) and Noel Whelan reviewing the papers, but forgot all about it. You keep watching because you really don’t know what is going to happen next or just what the presenter will say. That said, those trademark sighs and groans came across much better on the radio.

(5) News reports from Limerick. Someone must be watching The Wire.
