Wasn't the Cup Final disappointing? Of all the average toss-pots to score a left footer to win the Cup, it had to be Frank "Ginsters" Lampard.
So, its the 1st June and the 09/10 Premierleague season does not start until... I don't know when. Not for months anyway. There is also no major summer footy tournament this year and Britain Has Chav-Talent has just finished on TV (I voted for the fat Cypriot idiot dancers - they were great).
This all means that the Red-Top gutter press has absolutely nothing to print at the moment. So get ready for the overdrive of made up stories hitting your local newsagent any time soon. "Alonso to Arsenal", "Essien to Milan", "Adebyor to retire on the Moon"....
This is how it goes: "Sources close to a well known Premiership player have said that its a good time to get a rest, assess the squad and see what can be done for next year. A couple of the players' contracts need looking at and if a couple of new signings can be made, then why not expect next year to bring the success that we have all been waiting for next year."
Well I can't be bothered this year, well not at until a decent rumour crops up that we can get over-excited about (I remember literally praying every night in about 1997 that we would sign George Weah).
So in the meantime, remember that 99% of the stuff in the papers is balls, that you will never have heard of whoever Arsene Wenger signs this summer, and that we will spend less than Manure, Liverpool, Chelsea, Spurs and probably still Newcastle. It will make the next two months a lot more bearable for us all.
