A mate asked me to go and test drive a few cars with him this weekend, so that’ll be good fun on Saturday. I always like driving different used cars, seeing how they vary in terms of performance and comfort. We might go and have a go in some brand new cars too, which will be interesting. Not sure I can persuade him to go to the Lamborghini garage though.
Man United play Wigan at home this Saturday and I’m hoping we’ll be done with the car shopping before kickoff. I was going to go to the game but I’ve decided to watch it at home with the lads and a few beers instead. I’m hoping we can keep a good run of form now and get up to the top of the table in the next few games. With Van Persie in the form he’s in it looks likely. We’ve also got our first Champions League game next week, against Galatasary on Wednesday. We need to focus for that one and make sure we don’t make mistakes and get knocked out early, like we did last year. I definitely do not want to be in the Europa League again.
And it’s typical that yesterday, in keeping with my run of form with sporting predictions, Contador stormed the stage and took over two minutes out of Rodriguez in the Vuelta, giving him the overall lead. Just goes to show how quickly things can change in sport – I only hope what we’ve seen is an honest performance. It was amazing to watch and great bike racing but I can’t be the only one with a niggling feeling in the back of mind, knowing that he has just returned from a ban for taking performance enhancing drugs. It’s a shame cycling is tarnished with doubt because of its doping history but it’s something we still can’t ignore, unfortunately.
