Of all the teams to get relegated

Of course we needed the points, of course we're likely to struggle on Thursday to Blackburn (who still have an outside chance of qualifying for Europe), of course Man City won't be the pushover they should be but...I can't help feeling discomfort about Charlton's relegation and the fact that Spurs sealed it with their 2-0 win at the Valley last night. I know there was one incident last year but, apart from that, they are such a friendly, innocuous, happy-go-lucky bunch that it just seems a darned shame. I lived in the Woolwich area for a couple of years and I still don't understand where all these nice people at the Valley come from; they certainly don't frequent the shops in Woolwich. That's reserved for women in toweling jumpsuits f-ing and blinding at their scrawny offspring.

It looks as if West Sham are going to scrape survival at Wigan's expense- the kind hearted me thinks maybe this is a good thing for London football seeing as two london clubs are already set for the drop. The Spurs fan in me thinks: 'spawny gits.' I also think it's a shame for us that we can't now cream off their top players. Tevez is definitely ugly enough to wear the lillywhite shirt. Having said all that, apart from the last couple of seasons, Spurs have struggled for years agaisnt London opposition so maybe it's a good thing. However, we did the double over both the Shammers and Charlton this season, amassing 13 goals in the process, so I'm in two minds about that too. Frankly, if there's an omniscient, free thinking, benevolent football overseer in the sky I hope s/he hears my wish that next year Chelsea, man Yoo and, of course, A****l all go down. there'd be dancing in the streets north and south if that happened.
