This time of year is when the rugby blogs normally dry up, unless a new topic or something controversial happens. Can’t blame anyone, rugby has to stop some time of the year and I am not one to sit in anticipation for some NH rugby. Since Kitchendoos calls Super Rugby-Rugby Lite, I will say Magners, Heineken Cup and whatever else there is will be called Diet Rugby.
So in the meantime REM will be focusing on other sporting codes, like the English Premier League. Many a visitor to my blogs should know that Manchester United is my team of choice and I must say that it is good to see that there is so many faithful supporters out here on the blogs who support different teams. I know that Lobo is a huge Scouser and that Sheriff is a Everton supporter. Couple of Spurs fans and a Chelsea here and there and we got ourselves some debating to do. So why would I put a football post up here if we must still face the BaaBaas?? Well too many post will be done about it and a little something else is always good….aint it??
The title race started off with a bang, with United always in the trial by a couple of points. Chelsea started off with big wins against the minor opposition and expanded their lead on top of the table. Things will always get difficult and suddenly they see themselves trailing Man U, drawn at second with Arsenal. The top two must still face one another and with ManU giving Blackburn a slap in the face 7-1 beating the weekend, Berbatov and Nani must be beaming with confidence.
So what has happened with the whole Wayne Rooney saga? Well many of you will know that he renewed his contract by 5 years and got a pay boost. Meanwhile, the Glazers(Bastards that they are) paid off a lump sum of 220m pounds on their debt relieving the pressure, maybe just a little bit. Even though they are in debt, United still remains the richest club in the world with Barcelona, Real Madrid, Chelsea and Arsenal close by.
The festive season is approaching like Usian Bolt on a World Record dash and many will know that this is to time that United hit top gear. Still the football is sublime and one thing is for sure, there will be Glory at the end of the tunnel, my boys will make sure of it.
Cheers vi eers
