A Boring Day In London And A Shorter Working Week

Sunday’s games were a treat for anybody from London. The rest of the world, forced by Sky TV to pay for, and watch, teams in whom they had little interest, just sat back in the hope that everybody’s favourite London club, West Ham, would beat nobody’s favourite London club, (except maybe some of their own supporters), Chelsea.

They also hoped that everybody’s favourite Merseyside club, Everton, would beat nobody’s favourite London club, (except maybe some of their own supporters), Arsenal.

The first game ended in a 0-0 draw which wasn’t quite as good as a west Ham win would have been but at least it prevented Chelsea from maintaining their 100% winning record.

In fact, West Ham had the best chance of the match which fell to Yarmolenko but he headed wide when unmarked in front of an open goal. Of course, there is no way of knowing if the Clarets would have gone on to win the game had that one gone in because circumstances and the different passages of play which would have resulted in Chelsea kicking off, mean that 1-0 is not necessarily how the match would have ended.

Anyway, a decent point for West Ham and, of all the bubbles forever being blown at The London Stadium, it was one of those with Chelsea’s name on it which was well and truly burst.

Over at The Emirates we settled down to watch a northern club test themselves against Unai Emery’s revolution who concede goals for fun, so maybe it would be a reasonable game.

In fact, Unai Emery’s team should have conceded at least two in the first half but didn’t. Things then ran their natural course when Arsenal, against the run of play, scored two second-half goals, one a good finish from Lacazette and the other a tap-in for Aubameyang from an offside position which even a blind man would not have required a guide dog to see!

So Arsenal continued their winning run against Everton and a boring day of football was over. All that was now left was for the patronising idiot from Sky, Geoff Shreeves, to ask a few banal and pathetic questions of a couple of players who wouldn’t have a clue what he is going on about.  True to form, that is exactly what happened.

And finally…..

To all our loyal readers we have some very good news to share. As of next week we will only be publishing articles twice per week. There are a couple of reasons for this major editorial decision which are;-

1. The need to produce original material every day, whilst not impossible, is difficult particularly when there is a dearth of that material. So rather than accept gradually lowering the quality of writing, which has been the case during the past few months, we have decided to write less often but to a higher standard.

2. The gradual decline in quality has also seen a gradual decline in readers so, rather than be like all the rest and just chase high numbers by publishing rubbish as often as possible, we prefer to cater for a smaller, more discerning audience and, with that in mind, we will endeavour to produce quality articles a couple of times per week

Thank you all for your indulgence and loyalty to the cause.
