Well suckle my pachangas if it’s not nearly the weekend again. Nearly. As good as darn it for someone who doesn’t do Fridays anyway.
I don’t mind an international break so long as it doesn’t impinge on my Premier League weekend. And as well as being mercifully quick, this break also produced a great game between England and Brazil, by way of a bonus. Finally, England have another creative player of the same quality of Manchester United star Wayne Rooney, in the shape of Jack Wilshere. Arsenal fans have reason to be cheerful again. And there have been so many false dawns for England that it often feels like Groundhog Day but, dare we hazard, this could actually be a golden period for the national side?
But now it’s time to get back to the serious business of the Premier League. Ahhhh the wonderful Premier League. Say it to yourself. Let it roll around the mouth – The Premier League. It tastes sweeter than a blueberry gobstopper from Charlie’s Chocolate Factory.
England has an unusually low number of representatives in the Champions League knockout phase this season, with only Manchester United and Arsenal left. United will pick a team with next week’s European howitzer against Real Madrid in mind but, for the others, it’s full steam ahead.
Each week soccersweep picks an accumulator that might, just might, make you more minted than a guy who’s really very very rich. A guy who is so rich that, despite the very high level of intelligence that got him where he is today, he has run out of things to spend his money on. He literally can’t think of anything else to buy. And when he tells his friends this they laugh and start naming really obscure stuff that he might not have . But he always has it. To the complete bewilderment of the friend, who then leaves feeling a little bit ill about having to get up for work the next day when their mate has got all that stuff that he doesn’t even need or use and he’s letting you, his mate, go to work every day to work for what? For EFFin peanuts……
