Now let's get this thread back on track...
Sunday, 18 December. European champions Barcelona win the 2011 F.I.F.A. Club World Cup for the 2nd time after demolishing South American champions Santos 4-0 in the Final at Yokohama's International Stadium. Goals came from Argentine ace Lionel Messi, who scored twice for Barcelona (17, 82) then followed by two more from Spanish internationals Xavi (24) and Cesc Fàbregas (45). During the trophy presentation the F.I.F.A. Fair Play Award went to Barcelona and the Golden Ball award went to Messi while the Silver Ball went to his teammate Xavi and the Bronze Ball went to Santos' Neymar. Third place went to Asian champions Al-Sadd, who beat Japanese champions and hosts Kashiwa Reysol 5-3 on penalties following a goalless draw earlier before the Final at the same stadium.

Sunday, 12 January. Zambia creates history by winning the Africa Cup of Nations for the 1st time after defeating 2006 runners-up the Ivory Coast 8-7 on penalties following a goalless draw. The Copper Bullets, as Zambia is known, dedicated its victory to the national team killed in the 1993 air disaster during the 1994 African F.I.F.A. World Cup qualifiers.

Sunday, 26 February. Liverpool wins the Carling Cup for the 8th time after beating Championship team Cardiff City 3-2 in the Final on penalties following a 2-2 draw.
The result:
Liverpool
Steven Gerrard (miss)
Charlie Adam (miss)
Dirk Kuyt (score)
Stewart Downing (score)
Glen Johnson (score)

Cardiff City
Kenny Miller (miss)
Don Cowie (score)
Rudy Gestede (miss)
Peter Whittingham (score)
Anthony Gerrard (miss)

Note: Cardiff defender Anthony Gerrard is Steven's cousin and is a former Ireland U-18 player. The word 'Malaysia', which appears on all the jerseys of Cardiff players, pays homage to the club chairman and owner, who are both from that country.

Saturday, 5 May. Chelsea wins the F.A. Cup for the 7th time after defeating Carling Cup holders Liverpool 2-1 in the Final at Wembley, therefore equalling the Reds' record. Goals came from Brazilian midfielder Ramires, who put Chelsea in the lead in the 11th minute to make the score 1-0 during halftime. Didier Drogba added more misery to Liverpool by scoring the Blues' 2nd goal in the 52nd minute. Andy Carroll, who came on as a substitute for Jay Spearing in the 55th minute, scored for the Reds in the 64th minute and almost made it 2-2 in the 81st minute after his header was saved by Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Čech.
