Feels a bit like after the Lord Mayor’s show this week
I thought that was a very astute comment from Friend of Rachel Worth having to deliberate on two matches which don’t really come close to that offered via last week’s titanic battle between New Order and The Clash…and yes, there does seem to be an inevitablity about the latter’s march to glory which is reminiscent of German football sides in World Cups. But they still have three games they have to win if they are to take the title and there are some very tricky opponents that are lying in wait….
It’s also astute in that the scoring at half-time is lower than any other week that the tournament has been running, which indicates a bit of readership fatigue and/or a lack of interest in these particular match-ups which are seemingly leaning to particular outcomes in that:-
(a) Sting and his crew are almost certainly bowing out, thus forcing me to be imaginative again when the Smiths-lite crew take to the field in the quarter-finals: and
(b) the bard of Barking is nosing it at the moment.
