Arsenal 1 Birmingham 1

Arsenal could not find the goals today and paid the price as they were held to a 1-1 draw at the Emirates stadium. Arsenal dominated the early stages but could find no way past the Blues until Stephen Kelly was adjudged by referee Phil Dowd to have fouled Eduardo in the box in the 21st minute – and Adebayor slotted in the resulting spot-kick. The Gunners could not hold their lead, though, Garry O’Connor’s header from a corner levelling the match only three minutes after the break.

Which means that Manchester United had a chance to go top of the league if they won their match against Newcastle United. And they did just that as Cristiano Ronaldo notched a goal for the Red Devils, who were in blistering form, while Carlos Tevez struck twice and Rio Ferdinand was also on target at Old Trafford as Newcastle, reeling after Harry Redknapp rejected the chance to become their manager, were dismantled after keeping their hosts goalless in the first half.

In other matches, West Ham beat Fulham 2-1, Chelsea beat Tottemham 2-0, Liverpool managed to salvage a draw against Middlesborough, Aston Villa beat Reading 3-1 and Everton beat Manchester City 1-0.

So Maybe We Might Not Go

Ok that was a quick change of plans! I was looking forward so much to the trip to Calicut on the 19th but it looks like we may not go there after all. Still want to go for the show but if, as is rumoured, 13 AD are also going to perform in a hall somewhere in Cochin, then we might save ourselves a 5 hour trip and another 5 back. I hate traveling by train and am not so fond of buses either but I would have preferred the bus. I just hate trains.

Today at the office Eldo came to let me the news that 13 AD being a Cochin band, albeit broken up for the last 13 years, would also most probably be doing a concert in town, so he wasn’t too keen on going on a trip. We discussed it and if it turns out to be true, we will skip the Calicut show and make it for the one in Cochin, which might most probably be on the 26th.

enough dvd

I guess I will have to wait and see. But meanwhile, listen to their hugely popular song Ground Zero (couldn’t find the original video, this one is made by a fan).
