A great start to the week with Man United taking a late 2-0 victory over Blackburn on Monday night. That moves us five points clear at the top of the Premier League, over Man City, and our goal difference is only one behind them now too. I know I’ve said it before but it is at times like this that we really show why we’ve been champions over and over again – not just keeping going but actually improving all the way to the end of the season. I’m not one to gloat too much but it is in quite a contrast to Man City, who seem to be falling apart a bit now. They were arguing amongst themselves at the weekend, playing Sunderland, and there really doesn’t look like there’s much harmony in the team. Balotelli always seems to be at the heart of it too but I think that gives a bit of a false impression – he seems a genuine person to me and not a liability at all, but that’s just from the outside looking in.
We play next on Sunday against QPR but I might have a look at the Champions League and Europa League games in the week, just to see how Chelsea and Athletic Bilbao get on. Otherwise I’ve got a quiet week ahead. The studio is booked out on Wednesday and Thursday for a local band doing a demo and other than that I’m just going to be doing some chores and running a few errands. A friend of mine wants me to go and look at a used Honda Civic with him this afternoon so maybe we’ll stay out for a game of snooker or something after that. The last time we looked at a car together he was about to buy it when I noticed a serious fault in the bodywork, which showed that it had been in an accident previously. Maybe that’s why he’s taking me this time too – he thinks I’m his lucky charm.
