I’m still alive–barely–after a morning of high drama in the English Premiership. When Everton (“a small club”) took a 2-0 lead against Manchester United I uttered the phrase, “That’s the season.” Chelsea, meanwhile, were up 2-1 at home against Bolton Wanderers; Chelsea haven’t lost a home fixture in the league in almost three full seasons, so the result looked safe. Half-an-hour and four Manchester United goals later, Everton were dead and buried; meanwhile, in London, a Kevin Davies goal drew Bolton level, and Chelsea couldn’t find a winner, not even after bringing Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard onto the pitch. Which lead to the following classic photograph from the Beeb:
On the left, the indefatiguable Sir Alex Ferguson embraces Michael Carrick and Cristiano Ronaldo. And on the left, a fan of Chelscum sits with her mouth agape as she ponders whether jumping aboard the bandwagon was a good idea or not. As Paul would say, it serves her right. Four more points clinches the Premiership for United.
