And so it begins…

November 24, 2012

Hello! If you’re reading this, you want to read random sports mumblings, or at least, I hope so, otherwise you’re in the wrong place. A quick sporting introduction:

  • I support Newcastle United in football, but am fairly indifferent in other sports.
  • My favourite sports would have to be cricket, rugby and football, as well as a frankly obsessive interest in snooker.
  • My favourite sportsman is the genius that is Ronnie O’Sullivan. Alan Shearer was also of course a legend, and his charisma really shows through on MOTD (or not)

Now, to current events: the managerial roundabout keeps on turning so in football that means it’s Mark Hughes and poor Roberto di Matteo out, ‘Arry Redknapp and Rafa Benitez in. Whilst I can’t help thinking that Redknapp will do a great job at QPR, Abramovich is mad to sack the manager that led Chelsea to Champions League and FA Cup success. Coupled with the fact that Benitez is unpopular with the fan base, it means that Rafa may have a tricky season on his hands.

Next is cricket where an interesting test match series in India vs England is developing. After an utter trouncing by the Indians in the first match, the second test appears well poised after another frankly heroic captain’s innings from Ali Cook. England are becoming dangerously close to being a one man team in terms of batsman, and it could be worrying for the future.

Moving swiftly on to the Autumn Internationals in Rugby. England are performing predictably poorly and new Zealand are dominating (for a change). However the big surprise is Ireland, who have lost 5 of their last 6 fixtures and for a nation that is often the best challenge to the Southern Hemisphere control, this is disappointing.

I think that’s about it for today. Thanks for reading!
