The Run of Play is a blog about
the wonder and terror of soccer.
We left the window open during a match in October 2007 and a strange wind blew into the room.
Now we walk the forgotten byways of football with a lonely tread, searching for the beautiful, the bewildering, the haunting, and the absurd.
Well, let’s see. They’re tied on points at the top of the league with four months left in the season. So, yeah. I’d say that one draw against Everton just about rules them out.
Honestly, the only the way The Game is going to top itself at this point is to start throwing doubt on Manchester United’s ability to win the league in 1965.
