Been a while since the last update so a fair bit to cover today…

Not a great weekend for Leeds United who lost 2-0 at home to Ipswich, their first home defeat of the season. Leeds dominated the game although their strikers were unable to reach the back of the net. In a similar fashion to what happened at the Brighton game Leeds were caught on the break and conceded two sloppy goals. This issue seriously needs to be addressed and fast, while I am not calling for manager Kevin Blackwell’s head I would not object if he was replaced with a proven manager, not another Peter Reid or Terry Venables. Problem is that there doesn’t seem to be anybody suitable and available at the moment, one thing’s for sure, chairman Ken Bates will not stand for defeats for much longer.

The only thing that made Saturday’s football anything but terrible was the fact that Blackburn Rovers beat Manchester United 2-1. Hahaha – always funny to see them lose. Unfortunately Arsenal failed to beat West Ham so this greatly increases Chelsea’s lead at the top of the Premiership, it appears this year it really is a “One Horse Race” and the only thing to speculate is what month Chelsea will win it.

May as well award it to Chelsea now

Still on the topic of football my pre-order of Fifa 2006 arrived a week early. Been playing it a lot today, getting used to the new feel and controls. Very different to Fifa 2005, it appears the “Off the ball control” (where you could move a second player to pass the ball to) is gone. In my opinion this is a good thing, in Fifa 2005 it was all too easy just to use this system to hoof the ball from one end of the field to the other and score, totally unrealistic. In Fifa 2006 you really have to work and produce skilful play to win matches.

Finally I watched the first episode of the new series of Lost the other day, a very impressive start to the second series.

Without giving too much away a new location and character were introduced to the series, both should give much more scope for storylines for the future. In typical Lost fashion, by the end of the episode I was left with even more questions than I had before I watched it.

  • About Me

    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.
