facere quatro

I’m tempted not to go tonight. Not that tempted, obviously. I’m going. If you were to try to tempt me not to go, you would fail. So I’m lying through my teeth. I’m finding the prospect of going very tempting.

 What would it take to beat Real Madrid tonight on aggregate? A man sent off? Two? Even then they will just park their severely depleted luxury bus in front of goal, and send Ronaldo out on a sortie to nab them an away goal to relieve a bit of pressure. It just isn’t going to happen, and the tiny little part of me that thinks “maybe it could” is like the tiny little part of me that thinks “maybe there is a god” or “maybe I’ll win the lottery”.

 It couldn’t. There isn’t (to be reviewed if a miracle happens tonight). I won’t.

 So basically I can’t be arsed tonight, but it would be too weird to watch it from my sofa. It’s a duty. Such a chore. I’ll go along to say “well done boys, it’s been a blast”. Pay my respects. I’ve reverted to type. I’m bored of the Champions League and am fixating on coming fourth again. Audere est facere quatro. It’s all about qualifying for the Champions League. I don’t even want to win the Champions League because qualifying isn’t the same unless you get to play in a qualifier. I’m a purist.

 How fixated? This fixated…

 [Why don’t you all join me – I didn’t bother with Chelsea and to be honest I don’t think I needed to bother with Liverpool.

 Send me your predictions and the one who is nearest the mark wins a grudging amount of respect, unless its whatwouldjimbodo in which case we’ll just delete this post and pretend it never happened.]

 I’ve tried to be realistic and if anything harsh on Tottenham

 LIVERPOOL

 17/4 Arsenal (a) – 0                                                                                                                    23/4 Brum (h) – 3                                                                                                                            1/5 Newc (h) – 3                                                                                                                              9/5 Fulh (a) – 3                                                                                                                              15/5 Spurs (h) – 3                                                                                                                        22/5 villa (a) – 1

 TOTAL – 61 points

 MAN CITY

 25/4 – blackburn (a) – 3                                                                                                               1/5 WHU (h) – 3                                                                                                                              7/5 – everton (a) – 1                                                                                                                         10/5 – Spurs (h) – 1                                                                                                                        14/5 – Stoke (h) – 3                                                                                                                     22/5 – bolton (a) – 1

 TOTAL – 68

 TOTTENHAM

 20/4 Arsenal (h) – 1                                                                                                                  23/4 – WBA (h) – 3                                                                                                                     30/4 – Chelsea (a) – 0                                                                                                                   7/5 – Blackpool (h) – 3                                                                                                                   10/5 – City (a) – 1                                                                                                                             15/5 – Liverpool (a) – 0                                                                                                              22/5 – Brum (h) – 3

 TOTAL 64

 Conclusion – we can’t lose to city, we have to win the games we really should win, and we might need a stupendous couple of results out of the Arsenal / Chelsea / Liverpool games.

 Or we hope that city fkk up, which is still a possibility. It’s wrong to wish injury, but I hope the Tevez injury is a niggling little two monther….
