It’s Monday!

Well, it’s the day after the FA Cup 4th round ties that were played at the weekend! there were some belting matches too with a couple of cup upsets. For Liverpool fans it’s probably a case of realising that karma may have played a big hand in them being beaten by Oldham as a very suspect goal by Suarez knocked out poor old Mansfield last round. I personally quite enjoy watching Luis Suarez though but I think he still has a bit to learn about the premier league. It was good to see that he is trusted to wear the captain’s armband in Gerard’s absence though, keep on playing well Luis, we expect to see some great footie from you. Spurs didn’t fare to well either and as I am a Blues fan I am thinking nice one! Leeds can really bring it in the cup though and I am actually quite proud of the fact that we and Leeds hold a record for one of the longest finals in footie history back in 1970. Not that I actually remember it, I was three then, but it’s always great to see your team in the history books. Better than that horrible thug stuff in the 70s and 80s when we were the top two teams of the thug leagues. Glad that problem was sorted out so that football is once again regarded as a family sport, although they could bring the price of the tickets down for all us hoi polloi, so we might just get a chance to go more often. Brentford did amazingly well yesterday. Now we get to the team I follow. I have always followed the other west Londoners in blue and I have to admit that we were actually extremely lucky to get a replay as the so called Champions of Europe did not play like champions at all. Good to see Torres get a goal though, should boost his confidence a little and just maybe we will get to see his old form when he wore red. And let’s not forget about Luton Town. I seem to recall that they were a top flight team when I was growing up and now they are setting records of their own as the first non-league club to progress to the fifth round for years (can’t remember exactly how many!). With Bradford in the final of the league cup perhaps this may just be the year of the underdog. Would make a change to the usual clubs winning and keep the spirit of these cups going in true tradition. I must admit though, seeing as though we are the holders of the FACup I would much rather see us retain the trophy. It’s a fan thing, C’MON YOU BLUES!

Got my degree at University of Cumbria (Lancaster) in English Lit and Creative Writing and now find how difficult it really is to make yourself write everyday. Hardest job in the world! Now a few years on I realise just how hard. Wordsworth was right, movement is so important to creativity...So a few years on now and over 50 walking football is seemingly the movement needed!
