Man United won the English Premiership league, and I do not think that is any news. Everyone already knew this would be the case almost one month ago, but the big news was that Arsenal made 4th place against all odds. For me that was the toughest feat in the league. Somewhere along the line, the race was so heated that even Arsenal fans were in doubt of the possibility of qualifying on the top 4. Tottenham was in full pursuit and dragged the 4th spot to the wires. I have never really being a fan of Arsenal (I am not even sure which team I support) but for that 4th place, I was routing for Arsenal, and truly, I don't know why, but they won. they could have as well won the league, that was how happy I was for them.
In the La Liga, Barcelona already was the run away winner, but the shine of that victory had since been taken away with the kind of flogging Bayern and Dortmund had flogged my Spanish princes. Again, which team do I support in Spain, I am not sure, it depends on who is playing. If Barcelona is playing any team apart from Real Madrid, then I support them. If they play against Real Madrid with Jose Mourinho, then, I am sorry, Jose Mourinho it is. There is only one problem, Jose is leaving Madrid to return to Chelsea, and Pep has since left, so I am sorry, I have also left La Liga, I have ported back to Chelsea. just thinking about it, I was never interested in the Spanish league until Jose Mourinho came there. He made me like Pep, I always enjoyed their fight, Mourinho was always like the heady younger brother who made so much fuss but always got the beating, but I enjoyed the drama. Jose is still my best Coach seriously, he just knows how to fuss, and create drama. He wins some, loses some, but never shuts his mouth. That is why I love him.
In England I used to be a serious Chelsea fan, but after they sacked Ancelloti, sacked the guy that won the Champions league, the guy that replaced Andres Villas Boaz, I think his name is Avram Grant, now I am confused, I got tired of their inconsistency and ported to whichever team I thought needed to win, so I was glad Arsenal won, obviously, but I was broken hearted when Man City lost the FA cup to Wigan, I did not really care who won the champions league, it did not matter to me, I was not a fan of the German teams, but I like Lewandoski, it was good to know that PSG won the french league because of my guy David Beckham, and Galataseri won the Turkish league because of Drogba. It was so good to know that Juventus won in the Italian Serie A, and that boy, Ballotelli was so troblesome he was almost a short one for AC Milan by earning for himself a 10 match ban.
But what thrilled me were the movements. David Beckham got tired of making football money and retired from international football. Pep has been pointed to be the coach for Bayern, Mancini of Man City relieved of his job for losing the FA cup, Jose Mourinho leaving Real Madrid, and taking me with him back to Chelsea, but the biggest news was the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson. As I heard this story over and over, I was moved to want to write him a memoir, and I would have titled it "I wish I had Known Him". I have never really been his fan, but when I hear the record of a man who had been the mananger of Man U for upwards of 30 years, then I am in awe. I am tripped by his consistency, no wonder he is champion, with almost 20 league championship under his belt, especially this one he won with the indomitable RVP. I wish had known him a bit more throughout the years, and I wished I had the priviledge of knowing what he thought about team work, winning, managing a team, dealing with talented people, working with new owners. Who else would know more about these things than Sir Alex. I hope he wrote books, and told stories, I like to know what he had to say. I doff my hat for Sir Alex for such performance, and I hope Abrahamovic learnt a little lesson in how to be consistent.
In conclusion, it is great to be back in business. I have thoroughly enjoyed the sports, now I hope you keep enjoying my writing.
