My team Tottenham either. Since Ramos has taken over we seem to be getting some results with the latest 4-0 thumping of Wigan at White Hart Lane seeing us pile up the league to a heady 14th* place. Blimey; what's going on here then?
Southend meanwhile do their level best to let bottom club Cheltenham win their first match in eleven games by going 0-2 down at home. However, when it was pointed out that Christmas was not until next month, they did they decent thing and managed to square the game off at 2-2.
The resulting point keeps Cheltenham in last place and Sarfend stutter in fifth place, equal with Leeds- who happen to have started the season on -15 points due to some dodgy financial wranglings last season. Good for Leeds but let's hope we'll be going up with them.
To conclude the round up of shonky football teams, Arminia Bielefeld beat Nuremburg 3-1 at home and storm to a quite pathetic 14th* place having nearly led the Bundes Liga at the start of the season. I remain dead chuffed as 14th is not quite relegation zone yet and hope we can keep this up until the New Year when the campaign usually turns to shite. Up the Blues...
*Hhhmm, how come all my teams are in 14th place and trying to stave off a relegation dog fight? Ah yes, that'll be 'cos they are crap. Southend excepted as they are in Division Three in your old money and don't count. :-)
