I Think I Got A Straight Six

Yes, Er's sexual innuendo is priceless, but not as priceless as our clairvoyance.

Without checking, I'm going to proclaim this the best week ever. You'd think this would be easy, right? Just pair up a couple of low numbers—lots of 1's and 0's with the odd 2's and 3's and you should get most results.

Eh, it doesn't work that way.

Well it does, but for some arbitrary reason we've made order count here at UF. So the first number we list, that's gotta be the home team's total. No switching as this ain't a game for swingers (but if you want to throw up on someone who's not your wife, knock yourself out, Cashley).

Point being, we've never bested 5 right before this week, and with the ridiculously improbable 4-1 (well, not that ridiculous *cough*Keegan*cough*) we lined up 6.

The downside is that we weren't really close on the other four. We had three draws, which we can't pair with three losses (or wins depending). And the only remaining game with a winner—excuse me: WITH A WINNER WHO IS NOW FIVE POINTS CLEAR AT THE TOP OF THE TABLE—didn't come close to matching the remaining available tally of 5-2.



Villa 4-1 Newcastle
Bolton 0-1 Portsmouth
Sunderland 2-0 Wigan
West Ham 1-1 Birmingham
Chelsea 0-0 Liverpool
Derby 0-3 Tottenham


Arsenal 2 - 0 Blackburn (5-2)

Citeh 2 -1 United (1-1)

Everton 1 -0 Reading (3-3)
'Boro 1-0 Fulham (2-2)

Something tells me that late goal by United will haunt Arsenal in May. I was bored at work today and decided to project out the rest of the year. The pessimist in me sees Arsenal dropping points to Chelsea (draw), Liverpool (draw), and Man Utd (loss at OT). Man Utd would drop only points to Chelsea (draw). That would leave both clubs at 92 points.

Maybe Arsenal will need to beat Sunderland by two goals to win the league...and we can bring Michael Thomas back for the game.
