Re: Actual (Association) Football Talk.

Hey remember when Liverpool was at the top of the table and still undefeated? :wink: :P

They still have a chance to win the Prem but Arsenal's going strong and seems Man U has found their form.

TIL that the phrase "having your work cut out for you" means the opposite of what I thought. I believed it meant you had an easy job ahead of you. It makes perfect sense! You don't need to make any effort, the hard part is already there, all "cut out" for you.

Exciting match between Man Utd. and Liverpool. Glad the reds took the win.

Only managed to watch the first half of the Spurs - Arsenal game. I was rooting for the Spurs but Arsenal saw a chance and took it. Reading recaps of the game and Tottenham got pretty close to scoring at the end.
