Title Race: Weekend 13/3/10 Predictions Reaction & Review

Chelsea 4 -1 West Ham (My prediction: Chelsea 3 – 0 West Ham) Turns out I wasn’t being harsh on Zola’s team in terms of the three goal deficit. A beauty from Scott Parker on his return to Stamford Bridge was something I didn’t take into account. A routine win for Chelsea, as expected Hull … Continue reading

Day 5, Canadian Music Fest: Featuring: The Leather-Wrapped Rap of ‘Leathers’ and a Cheery Trio of Cheerios at Rancho Relaxo

Leathers: Brought the style to Day 5 So, if you’re satisfied that you’ve understood my mind-boggling blog post title we shall, with twisted tongues, advance to the review of my final night at the 2010 Canadian Music Fest. And it was a good night; though I guess I’m running the risk of boring you all … Continue reading

Day 4, Canadian Music Fest: Featuring: The rage of the thunder gods, Monkey Junk’s dirty-ass blues, Maylee Todd’s infectious exuberance and the coolest damn drummer I have ever seen

After sloshing our way through the merciless storm that was raging around Toronto on Friday, it was a case of ‘more of the same’ Saturday night. Much, much more of the same. Let me tell you, someone must have pissed the thunder gods off something chronic because they showed no pity for us poor, sodden … Continue reading

Day 3, Canadian Music Fest: Featuring: Nice weather… for ducks, Charlie Winston becoming a duck, Bedouin Soundclash beckoning in summer and a Hot Hot nostalgia trip

I’ve had little to complain about weather-wise during my first ever Canadian winter. In fact, local Torontonians widely agree that it’s been the best winter for weather they’ve had since, like, forever. Lovely and mild. And all the while I’ve been wryly chuckling at the immense dumpings of snow the folks back home in England have … Continue reading

Day 2, Canadian Music Fest: Featuring: The absence of any queueing fiascos, Play-time with ‘Toys are Just’, and Party-time with ‘Green Go’ & ‘Delhi 2 Dublin’

Well, this is more like it. Now I know why we spent 60 bucks of our not very hard earned cash… to actually see some goddam live music! It was a truly excellent evening, kicked off in super-geeky style by Carlo Meriano of ‘Toys Are Just’ at Rancho Relaxo. In fact, his performance might be a tough … Continue reading

The Title Race: Weekend Preview! (13/3/10)

Chelsea vs West Ham             I predicted 3-0 Chelsea in this one and I stick by that as the game approaches kick-off. Might be being a tad harsh on West Ham, who grabbed a deserved point the last time they met and have improved in the last month after a really difficult season. Ultimately I think … Continue reading

Day 1, Canadian Music Fest: Starring: The twattish staff of Lee’s Palace, the very good Nightbox, the beautiful Barettas & the folky folks from Family of the Year

Phew! What a rollercoaster night of drama the Canadian Music Fest served up for us on day one. It was certainly never meant to be this way. Setting out at 8pm my girlfriend and I had high hopes for a charming opening night spent at Lee’s Palace, enjoying the upbeat pop of local artists Zeus … Continue reading

The Title Race: Predictions Reaction!

James’ prediction: Arsenal 5 – 1 Burnley Real Result:           Arsenal 3 – 1 Burnley I feel a tad aggrieved about this actually, despite getting the outcome right. If Niklas Bendtner had put his boots on the right feet long enough to put away a couple of the glaring chances he had, it could have been a … Continue reading

The Title Race: 6/3/2010. 100 Premier Goals for Scholes & Arsenal breeze past Burnley

With league leaders Chelsea distracted by FA Cup trifles this weekend Arsenal and Man Utd were both greedily eyeing up top spot, albeit for only a brief while. Both achieved it, though for Arsenal it proved as fleeting as the form of Theo Walcott… who incidentally was on form this weekend! ARSENAL 3 -1 BURNLEY … Continue reading

Title Race Predictions: Arsenal, Chelsea and Man Utd (6/3/10)

So who will be holding the illustrious trophy aloft come May? This year more than any other, with all three teams looking scintillatingly brilliant one week and excruciatingly bland the next, any plucky predictions have a habit of coming back and not just biting you in the ass, but actually ripping great, big, cheeky chunks … Continue reading
