The Grab: 05.21

The Blues celebrate their FA Cup victory with a little party, and guess what? Apparently some were drinking!! [Daily Mirror]

It's no news that Arsenal suffered greatly this season due to injuries to frontmen throughout the squad, most notably Thierry Henry and Robin van Persie, but rumor is that Arsene Wenger is looking to raise the odds of having another attacking player ride the pine at the Emirates. [Daily Mail]

Hard to imagine that Milan bulldog Genarro Gattuso used to play for Walter Smith at Ibrox, before he learned his, er, finesse. [Times Online]

As the Athens police gear up for the European Cup Final, they've stumbled upon a foolproof idea using paintball guns to not only deter violence, but identify hooligan elements. I'm sure we'll have no scenes of paint-splattered elderly Liverpool fans getting the crap kicked out of them by one of Athens' finest. [The Offside]

And finally, what is it with fit, attractive continental athletes insisting on showing off their package all the time? I know Europeans are typically more daring than us, but this is getting ridiculous. I guess it's an Italian thing, since the Azzuri did the same thing after winning the World Cup. [Kickette]
