Anger Management!

Over the last couple of months my drinking has started to become a problem, I am drinking more and more, I’ve started on triple vodka and cokes, which isn’t a good combination with my fragile and unpredictable state of mind at the moment. I have been getting angry at the most stupid things that I would have normally just let go over my head and it all stems from drinking too much. I am angry with myself for what happened last night, I found myself ranting about shit on the phone to Lindsey last night after the power went out just as I was about to start chatting with her on Yahoo and I couldn’t find the fusebox. I feel like a complete and utter idiot now, I should never have phoned Lindsey being in that frame of mind, and she was right to refuse to talk to me in that state, “call me when your sober” she said. Tonight I simply stayed away from the bar, I didn’t even go up to get a drink of coke, my drinking is slowly starting to destroy my life, it needs to stop. The acid test will be tomorrow when I am bound to get a load of texts/calls from friends wanting me to go JFK’s, but I must resist the temptation, it’s not like I ever have a good time in there any more! Anyway I am officially on the wagon, will someone strap me to my seat so I can’t fall off?

In sports news, it was good news again for my second team, Liverpool beating Middlesbrough 2 – 0 at Anfield. Judging by the first half performance by both teams it had no score draw written all over it until Steven Gerrard set Anfield alight with one of his trademark rockets from 25 yards out to give The Reds a 1 – 0 lead after 58 minutes. Gerrard made it 2 – 0 from the penalty spot after Andrew Davies was adjudged to have fouled Peter Crouch, Gerrard made no mistake in converting the spot kick. Middlesbrough never really looked like they were in the game, they simply couldn’t break through the Liverpool defences. This win moves the Reds back up to 3rd in the table again after losing the place on Tuesday when Arsenal beat Manchester City, The gap is only two points, so it could still go either way, all it’ll take is one loss at this late stage of the season, and it’ll be terminal!

The inevitable has happened, Duncan Fletcher has resigned as the English cricket coach after a disastrous winter tour and world cup. It was expected that Fletcher would be asked to resign or be removed after their humiliating world cup exit against South Africa. There was much talk of Michael Vaughan being dropped from the team as well, but chairman of selectors David Graveney has already stated that he wants Vaughan to lead England out against the West Indies in the summer test match series. I don’t see how he could be included in the team based on his current standard of play, it really isn’t good enough for an opening batsman, he’s always getting out cheaply. It’s not even like he can bowl well like Flintoff to keep him in the team, it’s very simple, if a player isn’t playing well, drop him and give someone that is in form the chance to shine. The England selectors stick with the same players despite having consistently played poorly for a number of matches now!
