A Word Of Warning To Premier League Fans' Wives

A Word Of Warning To Premier League Fans' Wives

Today almost every Premiership football fan's wife could be forgiven for believing that this is the day that they have been dreaming of for an eternity.

A day without any meaningful Premiership football, for the top end anyway, and one of those rare occasions in the hectic Premier League calender when you can actually enjoy a Saturday for what it is meant for like a relaxing picnic with the family or a walk by the lake. Sounds lovely doesn't it?

Well think again ladies, as I'm afraid although hostilities between the top seven teams have ceased for a day, the burning passion and desire that embodies every Premier League fan will be burning as strong as ever.

Chelsea, Arsenal and Man United may not gaining any advantage in the table or on the pitch but both Arsenal and Man United will be hoping that Chelsea are ran ragged by Aston Villa and believe it or not receive a few minor or major injuries along the way.

For a pulled hamstring to Didier Drogba or a sprained ankle to Frank Lampard could be all it takes to give the advantage back to United or Arsenal and hand them the title that they both desire so much.

City, Spurs, Liverpool and Villa may not be gaining or losing any places in the race for that club changing fourth Champions League place, but they will all be thinking about each other intimately as Spurs and Villa play their respective semi-finals in the cup.

Both City and Liverpool managers, players and fans alike will be silently hoping that both their rivals come through their matches, scathed of course, to set up a final between the two.

A final would mean one more match to think about in the run in and the pressures that go with it such as not wanting to pick up an injury and miss playing in the most famous domestic cup final in the world.

It would also stretch both squads even more than they already are especially Spurs who are spitting feathers as it is with their injuries to key players.

So whilst you are getting the picnic basket ready and looking forward to your leisurely walk by the lake whispering sweet nothings into your smiling love's ear,don't be surprised to find your words blocked by a pair of Sony headphones.

For that smile and glint in his eye that you naively thought was in reaction to the suggestion of a holiday in the Seychelles and the starting of a family was actually the snapping of John Terry tendon in his right knee as your fella listens to the football on Talk Sport.

So before you get upset at this inevitable happening or one like it, just be thankful that you got out of the house on a Saturday together in the first place and take comfort in the knowledge that he loves you more than anything else in the world ... well almost.

Nice theory mj - unfortunately for you the FA cup final comes at the end of the season (after the league places have been decided), so it won't matter. After all, he ain't playing tomorrow now is he? Still, good practice for tghe World Cup and the Europa league next season...
