It is Monday Blues today.
Yesterday saw the end of the 2013/2013 Barclay's Premier League as all teams played to their final match. The champions of this season's Premier League was already decided some 2 weeks ago when Manchester United seal it in style while seeing the retirement of Sir Alex just few days later.

But, it was not the champion's title that I am interested on. It was the Champion's League spot for the top 4 clubs in the Premier League which interest me more. Or to be exact, the last ticket to the Champion's League next season which was a battle between Arsenal and Tottenham Hotpsurs with the latter that I wanted to see them through. The first three spots were already filled by United, City and Chelsea.
Last night, Tottenham Hotspurs hosted Sunderland while Arsenal taking a trip to Newcastle United. A wonderful strike from Gareth Bale in dying minutes which secured Spurs their 3 points was not enough to earn them the spot in the Champions League as Arsenal brushed through to claim their ticket as they beat Newcastle United with 1-0.
I was disappointed they were not through. But, they themselves must have been more pain to lose the spot at the last outing of the season. However, my expectation still remains with them for the next season. And it will also be interesting to follow the future of Gareth Bale as whether he will stay or look for another CL team within this 3 months hiatus. Above all, my congratulations and respect goes to all of them to even made to this level as they reached 72 points, an all time record for the team while also being the first team to reach past the 70 points mark only to be missed out on the Champions League spot. They were remarkable this season but still there are also a lot of rooms for improvement and I believe AVB will sort it out this summer.
In the meantime, there are also a lot of expectations coming in for me this week. Firstly, me and wife will be much expecting our baby this week as this coming 25th will be her due date. Hopefully everything will go smoothly. Talking about 25th, I will expecting my pay this coming Thursday too as usually our payday never went past through the 25th day of the month. I am excited to know my new revised salary. Hopefully it is already resolved for this month's pay. Thankfully, this Friday will be a public holiday. It is Wesak Day. So I can enjoy my 3 days holiday with my payday coming in. Also not to be forgotten, it is Champions League Final this Saturday between FC Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund. I am going to be enjoying this as we have missed out the title last season to Chelsea at home ground. And this season have been very astounding having clinched the Bundesliga title with 20 points margin and recently won the German Cup in style. The pain losing the Champions League last season while being more dominant and prominent team has taught this boys a lot for this season. Surely, I will watch the match with popcorns in hand at my home theater of dream.

All in all, with all those said, life must goes on.
