Not sure about you, but I was in football limbo land this weekend.
The FA Cup draw spouted out a bunch of fixtures that left me in and out of a couple of games, but nothing to really get the excitement going.
I was, however, gobsmacked to see the Stormers get crushed like that! What the hell was that?
It was one of those weekends where I get left hanging, with the big match on Monday night, after submitting my words to the editor.
I usually have a go at predicting the outcome and I usually do pretty well, but to be honest, not a frikkin’ clue with this one.
I mean, on the Chelsea front, lose 4-0, win 5-0, lose 6-0, who could possibly guess what’s coming next?
As for Manchester United, everyone’s talking about the bubble bursting and following a dire outing against Paris-St Germain, perhaps doubt has sprayed its seed all over Ole’s (once) baby face?
I was particularly drawn to one statement: “PSG turned Manchester United into an impotent bunch of chasers.”
But here goes anyway: it’s a tight game, United try and play on the front foot, Chelsea players respond, following the unacceptable defeat at Eastlands and nick the result!
Not sure whether that’s from the head or the heart.
I was amazed to see the bookies giving United to win at 13/5 (almost 3 to 1).
Almost tempted me into a value wager at those odds.
Whatever happened, all eyes will have also been on the quarterfinal draw last night following the banger at the Bridge.
And not just to see who the big hitters will be playing, but who’s lucky enough to draw Millwall.
There’s no doubt, because of their reputation, wherever and whoever they play, it’ll be a mad atmosphere.
They bring that grit back on and off the field and police services will be hoping they can contain their fans at home or a smaller away game.
The Premier League gets back into gear on Friday night with two games at 9.45pm, followed by a bunch of mid-table fixtures until it all kicks off at Old Trafford on Sunday, with Liverpool the visitors at 4.05pm.
This definitely is a huge 10 days for Chelsea and United, with Spurs at the Bridge the following Wednesday night!
Back to the title race and something very confusing is happening right now.
I’m gonna ask y’all a question and I’d appreciate your comments
As Manchester United supporters, are you really backing City to win the league?
Like you’d prefer them to win it ahead of Liverpool?
Seems to be the general consensus. That’s some deep s*** there, my broe.
It is, of course, a huge dilemma, having the two teams you hate most above you and battling it out for the title.
I’d kind of feel the same way if it were Spurs and Arsenal fighting for the title.
But thank god that’s never gonna happen!
