AND BREATHE

Then the 380 matches up with the Premier League season he thought might never end. At least 154 has been contested by Crystal Palace and Burnley, at a time when most regular people watch Pointless or Home and Away, wondering what to have for dinner, and maybe a little early to open a bottle. Fiver has long been of the opinion that it's not too early to uncork a bottle and need a better reason than to fry the efforts of Crystal Palace, Burnley and all the other teams, most of whom have been whipped inside. an inch of their life for our amusement.

A tip for a fedora to James Ward-Prowse of Southampton and Pierre-Emile Højbjerg of Tottenham, the only two outfielders to join all three, with 419 minutes of their respective teams' best flight campaigns (plus extra time). On the contrary, the relatively idle Tomas Soucek could only manage a paltry 3, for 419 West Ham.

Manchester City treasured champions, their looming dangerous spells do less damage to their championship-winning chances than their pre-season crush have endured Chelsea and Liverpool's mid-season woes. Beyond a 6-1 steal at the hands of the now-departed José Mourinho's freelance Tottenham Globetrotters, Manchester United were arguably a model of consistency, but not well enough to benefit from their rivals' various collapses. Consistent with their only infuriating annual inconsistency, Everton managed to stay in the Big Cup qualification call until as recently as last month, before polluting the bulk bed and finishing th.

Fulham also took pride in cheating after a shocking start, but it was too short-lived, with their manager's emotional post-match interviews providing enough material for Mike Skinner from The Streets 12-album joint box set. The Cottagers went down with our best wishes alongside Fireman Sam and the West Brom side which proved to be truly a never-ending fire for a Sheffield United team. And as if all of that wasn't enough of a distraction, we quickly had an aborted breakup, a few shows of fan power, and a racist war that goes on as much as it seems unwinnable to fight.

It was the strange Mary Celeste of several seasons who ultimately lived, played, and even though the brutality of the program and the volume of televised plays made it surprisingly difficult to remember certain events, once coached with it she will be forgotten. 79

WORD OF THE DAY

“I don't think it will completely sink because I think the impossible is possible without going crazy. It shouldn't be that simple. Hornchurch should not win the FA Trophy. It's ridiculous for the level we're playing at. I told the actors [Stuart Pearce] to take something from what he told you, and he said a movie should be made about what we did” – Hornchurch boss Mark Stimson steps into Hollywood after winning seventh tier Wembley Hereford.

FIVE LETTERS

“In those Fans' Decisions it was interesting to see that Arsenal fans thought the team 'cannot hold on to the leaders, lacked leadership on the pitch and the passion to win', they needed a defensive coach, a dominating defender. , someone to guard the back four (Nigel de Jong), a midfielder and a prolific striker … years ago” – Noble Francis.

“Re: referee misfortunes (Fiver letters passim): a minor change in a theme. In 1984 I was head of a major London comprehensive department. I imagined myself to be a good centre-back and 12-year-old student striker Asa, who was in Arsenal's books, had no fear for me when he played the starting 11 It offended me, and his family and others in the crownline loved it. Halfway through the second half, he scolded one of his teammates and called him an idiot [effing]. I sent him for his bad language. No one objected out of disbelief and we won 2-1. The referee was a junior member of my department. Those were the days ”- Andrew Parker.
