Headlines
The Liga MX referee strike is coming to a thankfully swift end. Mexican match officials went on strike to protest players' behavior of them during games, which forced the postponement of last weekend's ties. Club America's Pablo Aguilar and Toluca's Enrique Triverio both received red cards in midweek cup matches for abuse of referees, which was the final straw in a series of threatening incidents. Now, both of those players have been banned for a whole year, which has brought the strike to a close. The resolution is expected to be announced today and play should resume this weekend. No word yet on when the postponed games will be replayed.

The weekend of April 22 and 23 will feature the FA Cup Semi-Finals. The ties are as follows and will be played at Wembley Stadium:

Chelsea v. Tottenham
Arsenal v. Manchester City

We miss the big North London Derby in the semis, so maybe we will get that in the final.
