Perchinho, like all Newcastle fans, can’t believe what’s going on.

 

Good day and welcome reader to my review of a bad weekend for me but an interesting one in therms of sport. On the dock will be Football, Rugby and World Championships Snooker.  

As you might’ve guessed from the title and picture, Newcastle lost 6-0 yesterday to Liverpool. Not one of our players looked like they had the drive to stop anything and that’s been the attitude that has killed us this season. The loss has thrown us back into the relegation battle and our run-in is still far from easy. Manchester United and Arsenal played out an entertaining 1-1 draw and looking at Tottenham and Chelsea’s final few games I’d say that Arsenal now have the upper hand in CL qualification. Arsene reportedly has a budget of £70m for the summer so we can expect to see him splash the cash and buy TWO unknown french/ spanish players for the combined cost of FIVE million pounds. Or is that newcastle now? 

To the rugby, where Jonny Wilkinson beat yet another younger english fly-half, this time Owen Farrell, by kicking all 24 of Toulon’s points at Twickenham. It put them through to a final where they face their countrymen Clermont. Is it too much to expect another last minute Jonny drop-goal? Probably, but I live in hope. And also the past. 

Snooker next and whilst the tournament has been relatively devoid of century breaks there have been some rare glimpse of quality. Judd Trumped Fu with a stunning display of potting ability and Ricky Walden gave  Michael Holt a painful 10-1 beating. Another point of interest is the fact that just 6 of the top 16 ranked players in the world made it to the last 16. A particular shock was Maguire, who was Poomjaeng’d (could that be a thing?) in the first round. My personal tip is Judd Trump now for the title. Trump tipped for the tip of the top? Rocket O’Sullivan is also looking in decent form and is certainly dangerous.  

That’s all for today folks! Thanks for reading, I hope you enjoyed it; please leave a like and follow if you did! Or don’t, it’s your life. Until the next time!
