Some Sports Gibberish!

Liverpool had done their part to try to snatch runners up spot away from Manchester United winning 1 – 3 away at Pompey, with all the goals coming in the second half! Robbie Fowler opened the scoring on 52 minutes, Peter Crouch doubled the lead in the 84th minute; but a minute later Portsmouth had a glimmer of hope when Ognjen Koroman pulled a goal back; but Djibril Cisse secured all three points in the dying moments of the game. But alas it wasn’t enough to leapfrog United as they thumped Charlton 4 – 0 at Old Trafford; so Liverpool will need to go into the qualification stages of the Champions League next season, which shouldn’t be too hard to negotiate considering the quality and depth of the current Liverpool side! Arsenal have beaten Tottenham to the final Champions League spot by beating Wigan 4 – 2 in an emotional match as it will be the final ever game at Highbury, before moving to the bizarrely named 60,000 seater ‘Emirates Stadium’. Spurs lost their game at the Boleyn Ground despite a good display, but it’s the result that counts, and it was 2 – 1 to the home team. Only a win for Tottenham would be good enough to beat Arsenal to the finishing line, a draw would have left them one point adrift of their London rivals, but it’s safe to say it has been the closest, most exciting finish to a season in a long time!

Jenson Button was left frustrated by his Honda team as he failed to finish yet another Grand Prix when his engine let go on lap 29; the Briton didn’t try to hide his frustration in the ensuing interviews with ITV, and left the Nurburgring before the end of the race. It was a bad day for the Brits completely as David Couthard was taken out early in the race by the STR of Vitantonio Liuzzi, which won’t please Red Bull boss Dietrich Mateschitz who owns both Red Bull Racing and junior Red Bull team STR. Michael Schumacher came out as eventually winner after shadowing Fernando Alonso until the final pit-stop when the German leapfrogged the Spaniard. It was a good day for Ferrari with Schumacher wining the race and team mate Felipe Massa grabbing the final podium spot. Kimi Raikkonen, Rubens Barrichello, Giancarlo Fisichella, Nico Rosberg, and Jacques Villeneuve finished the race in 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th respectively! It’s not the result that myself or any Couthard or Button fan wanted to see, and to be honest after Jenson went out of the race I lost interest in watching the rest of the race; and I guess it was the same for many fans!

Finally, it didn’t take long for Plymouth Music [Scene] to turn up again, this time its nothing to do with me, the new forum is a free-hosted thing, so I don’t expect it to be much, knowing that free-hosts are less than reliable, but if you are interested it can be found at here.
