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.

Mock Royal Rumble 2017

I do not have any insider knowledge about surprise entrants into the Royal Rumble. As of me writing this, I believe there are only 22 confirmed participants for the Rumble. I also do not have any insider information about the order of the entrants, or the winner. I am just putting together a mock I think makes sense + what I would personally like to see accomplished in the match. 1. Sami Zayn - Zayn will be the Iron Man in this year's Rumble, building onto his Daniel Bryan-esque push of late with Stephanie making his life more difficult than it has to be for no apparent reason. 2. Chris Jericho - Iron Man #2. I expect both of these guys to go the distance in this year's Rumble, and Jericho's as good as any for spurts of offense in a long match. 3. Big E - We have to add some size early to immediately slow down Zayn & Jericho. In recent years, the first 10 spots in the Rumble have entered and been eliminated quickly, and we haven't seen the ring fill up unt

Top 10 Wrestling Matches of 2016

Before we begin, these are strictly my opinion for what entertains me. I would love to hear anyone's opinion on my list, along with what their list is for the 2016 calendar year. I am not focusing strictly on the WWE, and this list will not be strictly singles matches. I also have not watched every match from every company, so if I'm missing something you believe is clear cut, there may be a chance that I did not see the match. Top 10 Wrestling Matches of 2016 2016 was a very incredible year for professional wrestling, in mainstream promotions like WWE and New Japan Pro Wrestling, to independent promotions like EVOLVE and Pro Wrestling Guerrilla. British professional wrestling promotions Revolution Pro Wrestling and newly formed What Culture Pro Wrestling have been a refreshing spark in the European scene and have since seen prominence in WWE's Cruiserweight Classic (CWC) and upcoming United Kingdom Championship Tournament. See the list after the break.
