-- Tim Howard saved one penalty kick by Junior Hoilett and saw another one by Mauro Formica hit the post before Spanish teammate Mikel Arteta scored a controversial stoppage-time penalty as Everton beat Blackburn Rovers, 1-0, in the English Premier League.

-- Sacha Kljestan was one of two Anderlecht players to have penalty kicks stopped by two different goalies in the 1-1 tie between Anderlecht and Club Brugge in Belgium's clasico. Colin Coosemans stopped Serbian Milan Jovanovic in the 5th minute, and after Coosemans was red carded for a foul on Brazilian Fernando Canesin in the 73rd minute, 17-year-old Sven Dhoest, making his first-team debut, came on and stopped Kljestan.

    Poor Brad Freidal was making some great saves for Spurs, just can't stop them all. BTW those "orange" Fulham jerseys are horrible, so much for getting a new Dempsey jersey.
