Come on Liverpool!

So with two matches to go both United and Chelsea beat their respective opponents.

Chelsea have Liverpool next week and then Wigan the next.  United will face Sunderland followed by Stoke.  One of the few bright spots this weekend would be Stoke’s performance.  From what I could see (just look at the final result 7-0) they have packed up for the season.  At least United can look forward to 3 points on the 9th. 

It’s all essentially down to Liverpool this weekend.  They will have to do the business for us if anything is going to come of this season.  Wouldn’t it odd for Liverpool to play a decisive role in United 19th title ultimately taking the crown as England’s most successful club?  Bizarre business and truly I can’t much coming of it.  They may be urging forward towards fourth but they may also have a hangover from there European outing.

It’s too bad that Mourinho has gone; there was a period just over 2 years ago now where United were seen as preferable champions over Chelsea.  Now this Italian guy shows up and suddenly people don’t really mind them that much.  Oh how things can change.

How much is too much?

Do you know how to say “stop”?  Do you have wil power?  I don’t.

So what games did I catch this weekend? Well Saturday included the following:
Aston Villa v Chelsea
United v Bolton along with Sunderland v Liverpool (Web stream and TV simultaneously.  You would think sensory overload but no…)
Real Madrid v Valladolid
Toronto FC v Real Salt Lake

And then on Sunday:
Blackburn v Burnley
Wigan v Man City
AC Milan v Roma

I can’t say that a significant thought came from watching all this football however I can say for certain that left to my own devices I will watch any type of football on offer.

I did make an effort to expand my horizons and filled those endless halftimes and pre/post match interview with FIFA 09, my favourite video game.

I think there are support groups for people like me…
