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.

I am disappointed by this. Microsoft has abandoned millions of customers worldwide in favor of their newly acquired toy, Skype. They flaunt it as a merger but the merging process is reported widespread to be faulty and does not transition your contact. They also have not yet ado…

You Must Be The Greatest!

"The irony was not lost on me: the man my trials had molded me into, was the master I'd spent all these years trying to find. I was lost and alone, awash with despair. I sought mentorship, I sought guidance- I'd fallen to my knees and begged for it. And now, there is no other way to say it, than to say I'd been blinded by suffering; I just could not see that my many struggles had been the hands sculpting me into the guide I'd sought. Where I once sought from others their forgiveness for my failures, I now forgive myself, and seek to help other extend the same to themselves. Where I once sought from my loved ones support for my dreams, I find now that they did not extend aid because they saw who I could be, and not who I was. I am my own master. Master, and servant - I am not above humanity, nor below it. I am of it, I am it. I am all that is human: life, death, love, loss, joy, and suffering. I am all of it, and because I am all of it, I am important, and necessar…

WWE Brand Split Mock Draft

So we're coming up very close to the brand split in the WWE, where RAW and Smackdown will be exclusive brands with exclusive rosters, and Smackdown will be going live every Tuesday.
Now, there are a number of factors that could shift the way the draft is handled. For example, we're still uncertain which show Shane and Stephanie will run. We're still unsure if they're certainly going to bring back the World Heavyweight Championship, or run with my idea and merge the IC/US titles and make that the main title on Smackdown. We're still not aware if tag teams will be split, if each show will have a unique division and title. We're still not sure if we're going to have women exclusive to each show and what that means for the Women's Championship.
Now, barring all surprise (not currently on the roster, and not NXT) draft choices, let us work with a few assumptions. First, I want to assume they will be bringing the World Heavyweight Championship back. I want t…
