Don’t Go Breaking My Heart
All hail the Incredible Hulk. Savior of West Pork.
Relegation weekend. It’s probably the greatest weekend in the Premiership next to the one where your team wins the league. If you’re not a Manchester United, Chelsea or Arsenal fan, you have no idea what we’re talking about unless you’re a fan of a team that narrowly escapes relegation.
That’s right, Liverfool. You’ve never seen Gerrard win the league.
Irony of ironies. West Ham celebrates safety at Old Trafford on the same day and at the same place where United lifts the Premiership trophy. Both teams jubilant and on opposite ends of the table. Promotion and relegation are part of what makes football the beautiful game.
Let’s bid a fond farewell to Charlton, Sheffield United and Watford. We hardly know ye. We’re sure former director and chairman of Watford Elton John is rewriting Candle in the Wind for Aidy Boothroyd.
