Bumping the bloated weekend thread around listlessly like a burst P.E. ball. Bit unprofessional lads.
City put themselves in touching distance of the title courtesy of an excellent display against a determined and skilled toon outfit. United see off Swansea with reasonable ease but with a certain air of fatalism. Nobody really wants third or fourth place it seems; Villa all but secure top flight status with a typically turgid draw against Spurs whilst Arsenal can only draw at home in a faintly surreal encounter with Norwich. Bolton teetering on the brink as they slip up against West Brom whilst QPR win against Stoke.
Elsewhere Juve tie up the title with an excellent display against Inter, and the blue half of Sheffield is rather happier than the red.
Blackburn Wigan tonight. You'd put money on Wigan to win comfortably, but then they only seem to be able to turn it on against the big sides. Blackburn must win. West Ham should see off Cardiff at a canter.
