For those following The Barclays Premier League you’ll no doubt be aware of Arsenal’s crumbled title challenge. For those that don’t, in recent years the team has made a habit of spending an entire season hot on the heels of whoever is leading the race, only to completely bottle it with four or fives games to go – and this season has been no exception.
Since losing the Carling Cup final to Birmingham City back in February Arsenal seem to have hit the self destruct button, only beating Leyton Orient and Blackpool since – losing another three and drawing the remaining five. The most recent defeat at home to Bolton Wanders all but conformed the end of their title challenge, they’re currently nine points behind leaders Manchester United with four games to go. Not only that, they’ve also relinquished second place to Chelsea, meaning they’re most likely going to finish third.
I think this should be attempted in the Champions League final.
Obviously it’s not a good idea to continue reading if you haven’t finished watching the show, but for those who have please feel free to post your thoughts in the comment section.
It’s been quite some time since I’ve participated in this blogging lark, and upon logging in to this site I noticed there’s still a pretty consistent daily visitor count and the occasional comment still coming in, so for those reasons I thought it was time to bombard you with my ramblings once again.
Alrighty, in typical fashion I’ll continue to largely ignore the usual world news stories and the like, so with that in mind today’s blog is about the upcoming wrestling show WrestleMania 27, due to air tomorrow night (April 3rd). I have to make a confession before we go any further, I’ve not watched any WWE broadcasts since last years’ WrestleMania. This is partially due to gradually losing interest as I get older and Vince McMahon continuing to cater to a family friendly audience, but it’s mainly because I cancelled my TV sports package recently so I can’t watch it even if I wanted to. Tomorrow nights show is obviously a Pay-Per-View so I can and will be ordering that separately, and I regularly read the so-called ‘dirtsheets’ online so I fortunately have a vague idea of what I’m talking about.
