Last Weekends Footy

Already into Wednesday so a bit late I guess. Man Utd are in cruise mode for sure 8pts up now on Man City at the top. The difference between the two teams is quite clear. Ferguson has control of his team Manchini does not. Brighton lost again last night and slip out of that playoff zone. In reality they may not be quite ready for promotion so another season to become a solid Championship side is the best thing I reckon. The pieces are all there, the new stadium, seems like a good financial footing and good management. They have been just promoted after all so this season can be viewed as a success no matter what happens.

Brighton Six Pointer

Really big game this weekend for Brighton & Hove Albion! Playing Middlesborough tomorrow at home. Both are on 62 points and in the playoff zone. In effect this is what they call a six pointer and probably will be one of the defining moments in Brighton’s season.

Football 24 Mar 2012

Thoroughly enjoyed the usual Saturday football feast, and there’s no doubt that I would be pretty homesick for the old country if I didn’t have access to some of the games I reckon. The highlight of the day was the point that Brighton picked up at Forest, it maintains them in playoff zone for a chance to go up. I can’t see them catching second place because not too many games left now but hopefully they can maintain the consistency to have a crack at the playoff round. I saw that wicked goal by Peter Crouch for Stoke against Man City, wotta cracker indeed! I think the ball didn’t actually touch the ground at any point from the goal keeper’s kick out to being picked out of the back of the net. Man City were lucky to get a point out of that game. I saw Wigan knock off Liverpool, as the season winds down the clubs fighting for survival at the bottom are always dangerous to play against. Those can be the best games to watch too as it’s panic football at it’s best.

Bill Shankly Quote

After the shocking Fabrice Muamba incident at White Hart Lane last weekend I removed the quote attributed to Bill Shankly about football I had on Facebook. Football is not more important than life or death, and I felt it was no longer a cute saying, and to leave it up would be in poor taste.

On a lighter note the comeback and win by QPR against Liverpool was quite thrilling.
