Some good football matches today, firstly Burnley against Blackburn in a heated Lancashire derby. OK, the quality of football wasn’t great (the game finished 0-0) but there was certainly a heated atmosphere between the players and the fans.

The game was yet again interrupted by two morons who ran onto the pitch, one appearing to be quite violent and attacking policemen – what is it with football “fans” this weekend, they’re behaving like complete tossers!

The best game was yet to come with Newcastle v Chelsea on Sky Sports. Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho put out a weakened squad ahead of their Champions League clash with Barcelona on Wednesday. It really pisses me off when teams do this in The FA Cup and Chelsea got their just desserts…

Newcastle took the lead after only 4 minutes although Chelsea dominated the game, however were unable to score. At half time Mourinho used all three of his substitutions, brining on some proper players.

Using all your substitutions early on is just asking for trouble and this was proved when Wayne Bridge was injured and had to be taken off on a stretcher. As Chelsea had used all their substitutions they were unable to bring on a replacement and had to play with 10 men. Still they dominated (just proves Newcastle are crap) but were STILL unable to score.

To rub salt into the wounds, Chelsea’s keeper Carlo Cudicini was sent off, yet again, no replacement could be brought on.

The game ended 1-0 to Newcastle against a 9 man Chelsea reserve team. Chelsea’s dream of winning a quadruple is out the window, injuries to key players, bad decision making by the manager. Not a very good day to support Chelsea.

While I feel sorry for the injured players, I do find the outcome funny. Chelsea underestimated FA Cup like so many teams have done before and paid the price. I think it’s fitting for me to go – Hahahahahaha!!!

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
