A cracking win at Newcastle on Sunday means Man United are now second in the Premier League, behind Chelsea. It is of course early days still but I think we’re going to hold a much stronger position this year, judging by the quality we’ve shown, and I predict we’ll go into Christmas top of the league and go on to win it with games to spare. There you go – I’ve said before I don’t like making football predictions because I’m not normally very good at them but I’ve got a feeling this season and I think we’re going to storm it. You heard it here first and I’m even going to put a bet on while I’m thinking about it, that’s how certain I am.
Last week ended on a bit of a high as the young band I was talking about in my last post were really chuffed to come back and finish their demo off properly. I’m not normally one for going over the top with good will and handing out unearned favours but as I said, they were really nice lads and it does feel good to help out an up and coming band once in a while. They’ve promised me a mention on the sleeve notes of their first album if (when) it gets released.
At the other end of the recording spectrum, I’ve got a guy in all week this week doing voice-overs for some radio and TV adverts. It’s good work because I don’t have to do much and I get a decent rate from the production companies, but it’s a bit boring after the youthful, enthusiastic rock and roll of last week. I’ve got Friday off though so I can go out with a mate and look at some cars. He’s been thinking about leasing a Peugeot 308 and asked me to go along with him. Should be fun – I like looking at new cars.
