Two in a row, surely not?

Yes, sports fans, its football time again, and Plymouth have managed a rare away win at Ninian Park against 10th placed Cardiff City. The margin was 2 goals to nil in favour of the Pilgrims. The first half of the game was a pretty uneventful, and it was looking like more of the same in the second half until the 71st minute when Darren Purse tugged back on Micky Evans in the Cardiff penalty box, and a penalty was duly given and Purse was given a straight red for the offence as Evans was clear when he got pulled back. Paul Wotton made no mistake with the penalty kick smashing the ball past the hapless Cardiff keeper. David Norris sealed the victory for the Pilgrims eight minutes later when he made a great run to latch onto Evans’ pass to fire Argyle into a 2 – 0 lead. This moves Plymouth up one position to 19th in the table, and a little closer to a mid table position, another win at Home Park against Preston on Wednesday could see Argyle jump five positions in the table, assuming other results go our way. Things are certainly starting to look up for Argyle, but I am not going to get my hopes up too much as I have had them dashed many times before, but I am quietly confident. In other football matches, Liverpool managed a 2 – 0 win over Newcastle United at Anfield, The Reds stifled the Newcastle attack, specifically ex Liverpool striker Michael Owen as he is clearly the Newcastle hit man, as they’re results have dramatically changed since Owen joined the club. Steven Gerrard was on the score sheet as ever, putting Liverpool ahead after 14 minutes, Peter Crouch hit the woodwork, but a fumble by Newcastle keeper, Shay Given allowed the ball to bobble into the back of the net. I only mention the game because of the fact that one of the chefs in work, who happens to be a Newcastle supporter, has been giving it loads saying that Liverpool would be whitewashed, he’s going get some stick tomorrow from the other chefs, who support Liverpool!

Still no confirmation of whether I have been accepted on Orange contract yet, but I assume I will get confirmation either way tomorrow sometime as they are probably only back to work today, and it takes up to 48 hours to complete are credit check, apparently. If I am not accepted I will need to buy a cheap phone as I am not paying £180 for the same mobile on PAYG, especially as I spent a lot of money yesterday buying DVD’s, food and beer, we were only going in for one beer, didn’t work out that way though, although I was home by 10pm, didn’t want a late night as I knew I had work in the morning. I managed to find a load of bargains in Virgin Megastore, picked up 6 DVDs for £37. I picked up Apollo 13 (2 disc special edition) Gothika, Van Helsing (2 disc collector’s edition), Resident Evil: Apocalypse, xXx2: The Next Level, and Titanic. I had heard lots of bad things about xXx2, but I thought it was pretty good, although it would have been better if Vin Diesel reprised his role as Xander Cage, but the producers decided to kill him off in Bora Bora instead of going with the original storyline where Cage would be back with sidekick Darius Stone, played by Ice Cube, but the powers that be decided that Darius Stone would be the next xXx, A missed opportunity I think, but nothing can be done about it now! Yes, I know that Titanic is a chick flick, but it was dirt cheap at £3.99, wouldn’t have paid full price for it, but you can’t go much wrong at £3.99, and it is a well made movie, as you’d expect from James Cameron!
