Weekend Review No. 17- Good evening, I’m mourning because of midday.

I set the two managers’s reactions from the derby against eachother and they contrast fittingly don’t they?

Hello to all! I hope you managed to deflect the deliberately confusing headline because today was derby day and there’s an awful lot on the dock to review from the weekend. As you might guess from the mourning and the  manager reactions above, the derby didn’t go so well but on with the post!

So addressing the poorly hidden elephant in the room (how well can an elephant hide in any case?): Yes, Newcastle United lost convincingly to the Mackems (Sunderland). It was really disappointing because we had a goal wrongfully disallowed for offside at 1-0 down. It was Papiss Cisse’s third offside ‘goal’ in four days and he must be almost fainting from all the false hope. I don’t want to jynx it but that goal could have been really damaging towards sending us down and whilst goal line technology is coming in for next season I don’t really think it’ll have the difference video relays could. They would probably have saved the match for us and, like I said, the match could have had even greater significance than mere bragging rights. Manchester United continued their inevitable march on the title with a 2-0 victory against Stoke, who are bottom of the Premier League in terms of results this calendar year. They could yet be relegated. Arsenal did well to come behind in ten minutes against Norwich, with just a little help from the referee to keep their challenge for fourth place alive. Finally, to the FA Cup, where it was no wonder that Wembley didn’t sell out for the match between Wigan and Millwall, who attempted to dispel their holliganistic reputation by causing a fight in the stands. Still, it was good for the relegation-threatened Wigan to reach the Final. There they will face Manchester City, who hung in to beat Chelsea 2-1 today. I don’t imagine that being much of a contest.

In the Masters golf, on the topic of which I posted on Friday, (https://gibberishsport.wordpress.com/2013/04/12/mastering-augusta/) Tiger Woods caused some controversy by not being disqualified after a penalty. However I don’t think it matters as Snedeker, Day and Cabrera are all more than 3 shots ahead of the 14-time major winner. I’ll do a more complete review of the tournament tomorrow so be sure to follow to see that!

In the rugby, London Welsh are now sadly doomed to relegation after failing to get a losing bonus point against Northampton. It was always going to be a tough ask for them to try and stay up and sadly they haven’t made it.

Thanks for reading, I hope you enjoyed it and if you did and would like to see more please like and follow up above! You’ll be seeing me soon hopefully for a look back at the Masters.

  1. really feel for you mate….BUT without the EUROPA league distractions I do believe you will be fine…. funny thing abou your pictures though is that one manager has his head hung low, while the other is on his knees…. i guess it’s the elation on Di Canio’s face that gives it away…

    • Yeah silver lining to that defeat was that we should have more energy. There are a lot of things to pick from the pictures, di Canio’s passion is amazing. I like the way they’re almost looking at eachother.

      • impressed by how he made sure he congratulasted each one players after the matchhe EPL needs such characters…
