A Question of Sport

Haven't had a post on what's been going on in the land of sports for a while, so now seems like a good time what with a pretty big weekend just passed.
To start with the local team, it was a near perfect weekend for Blackpool, finally pushing their way into the play-off spots with one game to go. It would have been nice if Leicester had lost as well as Swansea to give us more options next week, but it wouldn't really have made that much difference and at least the team they beat was Preston, so every cloud and all that. We've just got to hope the team can hold of complacency and get a win against Bristol, then it'll be into the play-off's and hopefully another brilliant day out at Wembley.

In the big time, its been pretty interesting at the top recently, United were around 30 seconds away from falling out of the title race before Paul Scholes gave them a vital 3 points. After that Chelsea lost to Tottenham to blow the race wide open again. This weekend both got the important points, and Chelsea's 7-0 against a tough Stoke side was very impressive, it bodes well for them going into the game at Anfield.
Should be an interesting few weeks, followed of course by World Cup summer :)
