Dear Jim'll Fix It

Dear Jim'll Fix It

Dear Jim`ll Fix It,
I am a 24 year old Arsenal fan; I follow the team home and away and have done throughout my youth. Whilst I thoroughly enjoyed the first two thirds of the current campaign, the last third has been pretty trying to watch as my team have unbelievably surrendered a five point advantage at the top of the table to find themselves out of contention for everything. Or so some would have us believe.

We Gooners have watched on in agony as our hotshot striker had his leg virtually snapped in half, a series of generous penalties have been awarded against us, whilst those who trespass against us in the penalty area have been forgiven, we have seen referees invent new addendums to the offside rule to deny us goals and have watched on with resigned disgust as Chelsea and Manchester United try to outdo one another in the "horrible bastards" stakes.

However, we have a league fixture at Derby County tonight and, with three games remaining, sit seven points behind the leaders. So mathematically, we are not yet out of the reckoning. If United pick up one point from their last two games and Chelsea only pick up two, Arsenal can take the league title by winning their remaining fixtures. Jim, I would like you to fox it for me so that Chelsea and United, under the huge pressure of a compact title race and Champions League semi finals on the horizon, drop the requisite points, whilst Arsenal win their remaining games and win the most unlikely Championship title since 1989. You see Jim; we`ve had our fair share of bad luck with karma failing to credit our account in recompense. I put it to you Jim that Arsenal deserve for their misfortune to be rectified.

Not only would this see the old myth of "it all evens itself out over the course of the season" upheld, but the comedy value of such an eventuality really would outstrip anything that so called "logic" could ever offer. Not only would this silence a hypocritical, purple nosed old Scot, but it would also sufficiently stun a rather unpleasant Russian oligarch. Not only that, but the little boy down the road just got a new BMX, and he keeps cycling onto my drive to show off. Don`t get me wrong, it`s a pretty nice bike, but I`ve got a Harley Davidson sitting on my drive. Fair enough, it`s three years old now and could probably do with a paint job, but it`s still much better than a BMX!

So Jim, please fix it for me that United and Chelsea are subjected to the same miserable luck over their next two league games that we have been victim of and let Arsenal march to the most unfathomable, and let`s face it, hilarious title win ever seen in English football. After all, if Arsenal`s capitulation really was down to William Gallas kicking an advertising hoarding and then sitting down, surely Rio Ferdinand kicking a female steward and the Chelsea ground staff brawling with United players should be enough for the biggest twin capitulation in history? In fact, scrap the above. Dear Jim`ll Fix It, please fix it for me to have Chelsea and United docked ten points apiece. Yours in hope and desperation, Tim Stillman.

The comedy value in watching two dogs fighting over a bone only to see a third run in and pinch it is a high one. The thought that neither ManU or Chelsea would win at least one of their last two games is more sobering. But as John Lennon would have it 'You may say I'm a dreamer but I'm not the only one'

Kind of reminds me of a time when I was ten in my garden. My rabbit was happily galivanting around in the sun, when I noticed a fox sneaking up on it really, really slowly. It drew closer and closer to my rabbit, who was blissfully unaware of the fox's presence. The fox was probably feeling pretty pleased with itself at that point, until I grabbed a nearby cricket ball in desperation and threw it as hard as I could, hitting the fox right up the arse, causing it to scarper. Never underestimate the element of surprise.

Haha! Cracking stuff 8-). I had a Manc in the office moaning about the referree this morning. Same guy was quick to point out, 'things even themselves out over the course of the season', a few weeks ago. Not so f-ing sure now is he. Was horrible to watch that game on Saturday though knowing that there was only a 1 in 3 chance that none of the buggers would win, lol.

If only we had won 2 of the many horrible, unlucky, controversial draws we have had recently (boro, birmingham, Wigan, Liverpool) Or got at least draws against the big 2 then we would be looking good to win the league. Realistically i can see Newcastle getting a draw against Chelsea at home and even Bolton getting a draw at Chelsea as they look to avoid the drop. It is then possible that Man U fail to win at Wigan but very difficult to see West ham get anything from Old Trafford.

JIM FIXED IT FOR ME........... :-) This morning saw Carlo Ancelotti weeping into his cereal as Mathieu Flamini silenced the critics by finally putting pen to paper and signing a long term deal with Arsenal. The midfielder says he always had every intention of signing and was merely holding out because he enjoyed seeing himself in the press................. Well, if the above is possible, we can hope for anything.
