Schrodinger's Cat is a Villan

I can bez chucked in a woodz chipperz?

So I'm sitting here recovering from a long and arduous month of singing, with my Christmas shopping finished and warm cider in hand, when I happen to flick on everyone's favourite Newspaper Sports Section Website Podcast, Football Weekly, only to have my jaw hit the desk on its way to floor listening to James Richardson and co banging on about how Villa MIGHT ACTUALLY GO AND WIN THE LEAGUE.

This is not, NOT on. You've let the cat out of the bag, and now that cat will be picked up by some large bloke in a Chelsea shirt, shot repeatedly at point blank range, and chucked in a wood chipper. It's like when you're watching a no-hitter into the top of the ninth, only to have the dumbass announcer let it loose that we are one pitch away from history seconds before the left-fielder bobbles a routine pop-fly.

I knew it, you knew it, most importantly before this weekend, Arsenal knew it, and you had to go and ruin it. I wasn't sure before, but now it's official: I'm so over you Football Weekly.

Clearest sign yet that the MSM are covertly in the tank for the big four.

My word verification this time is "shraker," which somehow seems to describe what's going to happen to that poor cat...

Jimbo has always been a master of timing...

Word verification: Pledven - the Bulgarian team Arsenal/Villa (I'm hedging on this one) will face in the group stage of the Europa League next year.

It should be added that no actual cats were harmed in the making of this post. I can't speak for the alternate universes.

You may be over them, but they are clearly not over you, as evidenced by Jimbo's repeated invocation of both your real name AND your erstwhile claret and blue moniker during the holiday period.

[preifts, which really is too easy, like a chance that Robbie Keane would fire massively wide.]

Ursus -- ah, I've been cheating a bit on the FW Facebook page, hence having Jimbo pronounce my full name in regal fashion. The VSG mention was all him, which means they REALLY know me a bit too well now it seems...
