London Derby - Chelsea vs. Arsenal

With Manchester United failing to capitalise during their match against Sunderland yesterday, it gave Chelsea the perfect opportunity to extend their lead at the top of the Premier League table, the only obstacle being Arsenal, who before this weekend ranked third in the table.

Cue the all important London derby match...

With the death of his father 4 days ago, it was thought that Chelsea's manager, Carlo Ancelotti, would stay after the funeral yesterday, but he had his heart set on seeing his team through the match. Luckily for him, his boys in a blue didn't let him down. With the final score being Chelsea 2, Arsenal nil, it was just what he needed.

The game itself was fairly equal in possession. They both had the same amount of corners, but Arsenal had a lot more fouls. Arsenal took more shots than Chelsea, but more of Chelsea's shots were on target. There were moments where Arsenal dominated but they rarely challenged Chelsea goalkeeper, Petr Cech.

The first half was tough but Didier Drogba, who missed the win against Marseille due to a ban, managed to sneak a cheeky goal in the near post, converting Ashley Cole's cross. His goal today means that he has now scored 13 goals in 13 matches against Arsenal. In the second half Alex sealed the win with a powerful 35-yard free-kick, which curved into the top right of the net beautifully.

All in all a very exciting match to watch, with both teams fighting hard.

Tattoos And The Idiots Who Have Them

More and more in recent weeks, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. I’ve got no problems with people getting tattoos, so long as they actually have some kind of meaning to the person other than “I paid for it” or “it’s on me now so that’s what it means to me” or “it looked awesome”. More and more I see people tattooing the most random things to their body, most people covering their body with the nonsense… and more and more, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. Thank a friend via Twitter recently for showing me a picture of some idiot tattooing stars up and down the side of his face. This began my rant against face tattoos. If you’re in a profession or religion where it’s deemed appropriate, fine… tribal tattoos don’t necessarily cause this reaction for me. I also would never have the balls to call Mike Tyson a fool for tattooing his face. But if you’re just a run-of-the-mill Joe… you shouldn’t be tattooing your face with anything.

Lyrically, he says everything that needs to be said, and his vocal game is crazy. Great beat, catchy as hell... ...FUCK YOOUUUUUUUU! OOOO-OO-OOOOOOOOO!
