It feels wrong to post about football today without mentioning Gary Speed. At aged 42, the Welsh national team's manager has been found dead in his home in Cheshire. It's a tragic loss, and one that has been marked with a flood of tributes on Twitter, from fans and players alike.

I have a sort of love/hate relationship with football. Well, that's a little strong. More accurately, I really enjoy football, but there are elements of it I really despise. I blog about it now and again and it tends to vary in importance in my life. Right now, I'm pretty into it (off to Stamford Bridge on Tuesday) and as such, am feeling argumentative.

You can be excused for forgetting about a post I made over 6 months ago, predicting how this season would pan out in the Premier League. I originally intended to return to this post a month later to see how accurate my predictions were. However, 6 months later, with weeks remaining of this season, here's the follow-up. Better late than never...

Footballing Injuries

I have an odd fascination of horrific injuries to the body, bred - I suppose - from a natural curiosity of the human body. At the same time, this stuff really grosses me out. But I suppose it's true what they say, human curiosity knows no bounds. If you're weak stomached, I suggest not reading on.

A quick prediction post to summarise the football rush I always get at the end of the weekend. I should say, I'm a Chelsea supporter.
