Do or Die...

Here's how it all shakes out now that we're all even in games played:

Man U won easily last night, beating Bolton early with two Cristiano Ronaldo goals. Hats off to the prolific Portuguese winger - he's on fire with 24 goals in 24 matches. The win takes Man U three points clear at the top. No word yet on where the team bus is so there's still hope...

Third place Chelsea found themselves in an unexpected street fight with Tottenham, where they lead 3-1 at one point, but the Spurs fought back tooth and nail, and ended up equalizing in the 88th minute! Final score: 4-4. Sounds like it was a match to watch.

So Chelsea's stumble obviously works to our favor but they're still breathing down our necks, only two points behind us, as we approach our do-or-die match away with them this weekend. Of course, Chelsea hasn't lost at home in four years, but then AC Milan had never lost to an English team at home until they met Arsenal and the last team to beat Chelsea at home was...Arsenal.
  • Simple - Arsenal has to win this weekend to stay in the PL title hunt
  • We need Man U to lose once and lose or tie again, and we have to win all eight of our remaining PL matches
  • Man U plays Liverpool this weekend (if the bus makes it)
  • We play Man U right after we finish our three match Liverpool marathon in April
C'mon Arsenal! It's still in our reach.
Someone give Van Persie some human growth hormone and let's get on with it!

In other news, Walcott made the English team, and they better lock up Flamini now!

And I sympathize with all the Roma supporters over the loss yesterday - I do know how you feel...

One more thing - go Siena!
