The Race for the Barclays Premier League Title: The Leicester Citys freight train keeps moving while the Tottenham Hotspur steam locomotive stay right behind them.
This weekend saw the end of any title hopes for the Arsenal who drew against West Ham United (we’ll get to that later)
In a tricky match against a relegation threatened Sunderland it took Leicester City 66 minutes to open the scoring. In the 90th minute, Jamie Vardy capped off his brace when waltzed around the Sunderland keeper to net the ball home.
Sunderland 0-2. Leicester City
That win meant the chasing Tottenham Hotspur, who were playing later on that day, had to produce the goods against Manchester United, a team they have only beaten once in 14 years.
So you could say they odds were stacked against them.
But, this is Louis van Gaal Manchester United we are talking about.
It took some time for Spurs to open that stubborn United defense but once they did the floodgates of heaven opened. Not only did they beat – excuse my French- they crap out of a pathetic Manchester United but they did it with some dabbin’ too. (look up the word up in the urban dictionary, please)
Tottenham Hotspur 3 – 0. Manchester United
Like my favourite chunky RnB singer Adele once said in a song
This Barclays Premier League race “it isn’t over.”
Scrap for the Top 4 places: West Ham United and Arsenal drew in a 6 goal classic, Manchester United get a hiding, and City comes from behind to beat West Brom
Same old s**t, just a different day for the Gunners. I feel I have to say that again, It’s the same old SHIT, just a different day. They are out of the championship race and now are only looking to secure a champions league spot.
Let’s say (type) it all together now we want #wengerout
Arsenal and West Ham United gave us one of the games of the season.
It went a bit like this;
M. Ozil scores 1-0
A. Sanchez scores 2-0
West Ham United are worried now…
Before halftime, a cross comes in Andy Carroll (does what Andy Carrol does) scores with his head, 1-2
On the stroke of halftime Andy Carroll, this time, a bicycle kick scores again! 2-2
7 minutes after halftime Andy Carroll scores a hattrick!!! 3-2
Wenger is about to have a stroke or a cerebral hemorrhage…
Dimitri Payet does Dimitri Payet things, making other footballers look inferior
70th minute L. Koscielny equalises 3-3!
This game is crazy!
Back and forth till the 90th minute.
phew! let me catch my breath…
Everytime Louis van Gaal seems like he is coming right, he goes and does something like this.
Manchester United do not lose to Tottenham Hotspur, but he did, 3-0.
Did I mention that LvG decided to play Jesse Lingard (a player I hate by the way) at number 10 and played Juan Mata, a number 10, out on the wing.
Oh did I mention he took off Rashford (fair enough, he may have been struggling) for Ashley Young, a player who hasn’t played in months and DECIDED TO PLAY HIM (A WINGER) AT CENTRE FORWARD WITH ANTHONY MARTIAL ON THE PITCH!
And oh yeah before I forget did I mention how much I hate Louis van Gaal?
Manchester City did what they had to do against West Bromwich Albion and it seems more than likely that they will clinch that 4th spot.
Survivor: Relegation Edition: Norwich City, Newcastle, Sunderland, and Aston Villa all lose
All four of the bottom four lost this weekend.
As things stand, there seems like there is only one spot up for grabs. Aston Villa is already relegated so Sam’s Sunderland, Rafa’s Newcastle, and the guy who isn’t popular enough for me to remember his name’s Norwich have it all to fight for.
The La Liga Wars – Episode 32: Barcelona fails to win against Real Sociedad at home, again. Sociedad aren’t a hoodoo they are more of a voodoo team, Real smash Eibar and Atlético Madrid take care of Espanyol
Just when you thought La Liga was all over.
Ronaldo and Madrid flatten an Eibar side who weren’t up for it and Atlético also show us how coming back from a deficit is done.
Barcelona, on the other hand, lost their second game in a row at Sociedad which makes them only 3 points behind Atletico and only 4 points behind Madrid with 6 games to play.
Real Sociedad shut down the spaces through the middle and let them have it on the wings. Barcelona didn’t do much with the ball that they did have. Messi hardly had a kick of the ball.
Was this the tactical genius of another coach who isn’t popular enough for me to remember his name or is Barcelona just tired.
They look knackered. The number of competitive games that they are playing is taking a toll on their small squad.
