It's gonna be a blue day

I meant to write following the FA Cup Semis the other weekend, but I realised that it’d only degenerate into a diatribe about how awful Blackburn are, and how hilarious it is watching Newcastle trying to defend. Thankfully, it’s set up the cup final that I, and just about every other fan, wanted. A big showpiece game at the end of the season, it makes a difference from Arsenal v Southampton or Manchester United v Milwall. Bring it on.

Midweek saw Arsenal fail to beat a dogged Chelsea team playing for a draw like any sensible team should have done. Which is one of Chelsea’s prime strengths, the ability to not get as bored with their own football as the rest of us. There’s no doubt at all that they’re capable of playing some beautiful football, last wednesday’s game was as high-quality a game I’ve seen in a long, long time. It’s nice to see two top teams trying to (and who are good enough to try to) out-think and out-play each other, unlike a certain other top side whose sole tactic revolves around kicking, pushing, moaning and praying that a 19-year old girlfriend-slapping, student-punching, mirror-breaking, pisshead bulldog creates something magical for them.

I genuinely think that if Arsenal hadn’t lost Gilberto, Vieira and Sol Campbell for such large swathes of the season that these final three games could have been the greatest climax to a league season in a decade, but it wasn’t to be, and we all have to resign ourselves to seeing the Blue Red-Army crossing the finishing post in first place a good length clear of the pack. It’s good for football that the United-Arsenal duopoly has been broken, it’s a crying shame that it’s only been done because of the irresponsible investment of a dubious Russian Steel/Oil Baron, but it’s done now so there’s no sense in complaining.

Last Wednesday saw a much more encouraging phenomenan of the 2004/05 Premiership season though, the rise-and-rise of Everton Football Club. Beating Manchester United last week saw the Toffees pull clear of Liverpool (and this weekend’s fixtures saw them pull a further point away as Liverpool surrendered to Crystal Palace) to secure fourth place in the Premiership almost certainly. If David Moyes’ side manage to hold on—which I think they will—then it will quite frankly be one of the most incredibly turnarounds, certainly in the history of the Premiership, and maybe going further back than that. I wasn’t the only pundit who thought Everton were heading for the drop nine months ago, they were plenty of people’s shoe-ins for relegation. Now I’m confident Moyes is a ‘shoe-in’ for manager of the year. Fabuslous effort and a huge encouragement to all teams who don’t regularly finish in the top five or six.

Moving all the way to the present, tonight sees Arsenal up against Spurs, with the Gunners trying to hold off Chelsea’s title party for another week and the scummy team in white warming up for the Inter-Toto Cup. I’ve been in a bit of a dilemma this season, as I really like Martin Jol, he seems like a good laugh, and a nice, honest bloke who enjoys the game and wants his teams to play footbell. Which all makes me wonder what he’s doing at Spurs. The last time these two met there were fireworks, though not of the usual, err, firey, kind that we’re used to, but in the form of a nine-goal thriller. With Arsenal’s defence shored up since then and Spurs’ attacking threat seemingly dimmed a little, I don’t expect anything quite so spectaular, though I do expect the game to be more open than usual.

With midweek comes ‘the big one’, last year it was Arsenal v Chelsea in Quarter Finals, this year it’s Liverpool v Chelsea in the Semis. One has to fancy Chelsea, they’re a better team, they’re more consistent, more solid (though their last couple of leaky Champions League performances belies their usual solidarity) and they’ve got answers to any questions Liverpool can ask. That said, Liverpool have really turned on the magic in the CL this year, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see a strong performance from them providing they keep it together psychologically. That’s all Liverpool’s poor performances can be put down to this year, their players are hugely affected by their own confidence (or lack of it) and it’s fair to paraphrase an old nursery rhyme: when they’re up they’re up, and when they’re down, they’re down.

As the season closes, expect the ATF Awards and a season roundup looking at the highs and lows for each side in the Premiership, what to look forward to and what it’s probably best to forget. Before I sign off, congratulations to Sunderland, and boo-hiss to any Makems who took it easy on Saturday night—shame on you!
