The End is Coming!!!

With a little distance I am becoming calmer and more rational about Sheffield United going down. This too shall pass. But now some of the news agencies are starting to come up with stories suggesting just how serious this legal challenge might be to West Ham not having points deducted for their fling with their Argentines. And on top of all that, it looks as if Sepp Blatter and his cronies at FIFA also want to get involved; so maybe we haven’t seen the last of crazy ole’ Neil Warnock quite yet. See related article below.


Also, in my attempt to look on the bright side of life, I’ve had time to reflect on the awesomeness of Real Madrid over the past few weeks. Thank goodness we have a few weeks left of la Liga so I can continue to be entertained. It will be a great race. The always excellent Phil Ball’s weekly column, by the way, can be found here.


The only sad part of all this is my slowly dawning realization that the European season is coming to an end. Take a look at the weekend schedule for soccer on the great website livesoccertv.com: you will see that some channels, like FSC, are already switching over to re-runs. It’s like waking up as a kid on December 26 and realizing there are 364 days ‘till Christmas…
