Burning Bridges

The Mike Curb Congregation

Friends all tried to warn me
But I held my head up high
All the time they warned me
But I only passed them by
They all tried to tell me
But I guess I didn’t care
I turned my back and
Left them standing there

All the burning bridges that have fallen after me
All the lonely feelings and the burning memories
Everyone I left behind each time I closed the door
Burning bridges lost forevermore

Joey tried to help me find a job
A while ago
When I finally got it I didn’t want to go
The party Mary gave for me
When I just walked away
Now there’s nothing left for me to say

All the burning bridges that have fallen after me
All the lonely feelings and the burning memories
Everyone I left behind each time I closed the door
Burning bridges lost forevermore

Years have passed and I keep thinking
What a fool I’ve been
I look back into the past and
Think of way back then
I know that I lost everything I thought I that could win
I guess I should have listened to my friends

All the burning bridges that have fallen after me
All the lonely feelings and the burning memories
Everyone I left behind each time I closed the door
Burning bridges lost forevermore

Burning bridges lost forevermore

Everyone’s Gone to the Moon

Jonathan King

Streets full of people, all alone
Roads full of houses, never home
Church full of singing, out of tune
Everyone’s gone to the moon

Eyes full of sorrow, never wet
Hands full of money, all in debt
Sun coming out in the middle of June
Everyone’s gone to the moon

Long time ago
Life had begun
Everyone went to the sun

Cars full of motors, painted green
Mouths full of chocolate-covered cream
Arms that can only lift a spoon
Everyone’s gone to the moon
Everyone’s gone to the moon
Everyone’s gone to the moon

Arizona 10 Seahawks 27

Everything the Seahawks weren’t last Sunday in a surprising home loss to the New Orleans Saints they were this Sunday in beating the Arizona Cardinals, 27-10.

A week after falling behind 7-0 before most people had even turned on the TV, the Seahawks for once started fast — leading at the end of the first quarter and halftime for the first time this season in building a 20-3 lead at the break.

A week after basically giving the Saints two touchdowns, the Seahawks were efficient no turnovers for the game and no penalties during a first half in which they took control.

And a week after gaining 515 yards but having little to show for it, they were opportunistic, with a pick-six by defensive end Jadeveon Clowney in the first quarter giving the Seahawks an early cushion they would never relinquish, and then scoring offensively on all four drives that got inside the Arizona 20.

When it was over, coach Pete Carroll said the Seahawks had laid the template for the kind of team they can be this season — and will need to be in order to have the kind of season they want. “I felt this was really a complete game for us,’’ Carroll said after Seattle improved to 3-1 with its first victory this season by more than two points and that didn’t come down to the final series.

What Carroll liked as much as anything was a 15-play, 75-yard drive that lasted 8:08 in the fourth quarter — Seattle’s longest drive this year in both plays and time — that gave the Seahawks a final touchdown with 2:13 left after Arizona had scored its only touchdown of the day. A key play on the drive came when quarterback Russell Wilson evaded pressure on a third-and-two play to toss it to Luke Willson, the popular tight end from 2013-17 who returned last week to replace the traded Nick Vannett.

Willson fought through an illegal contact penalty from Arizona’s Jordan Hicks (which would have given Seattle a first down regardless) to make a diving grab for a 17-yard gain and move the ball to the Arizona 37.

The Seahawks made such quick work of the Cardinals they were able to watch the end of the Rams-Tampa Bay game on televisions in the locker room as they did interviews.

When the Bucs sewed up the game on Ndamukong Suh’s fumble return — which assured that the Rams and Seahawks will each be 3-1 when the two play Thursday at CenturyLink Field — the locker room erupted.

And a week after the Seahawks wondered where things were headed, they could suddenly look happily toward a battle with major NFC West implications — a most-familiar feeling, indeed.

“We did a lot of hard work this week just to make sure that we were precise throughout the whole week and come game day,’’ Wilson said of how the team rebounded from the defeat against the Saints. “We took that challenge on and we were ready to roll.’’

Spurs 2 Southampton 1 

Spurs showed their team spirit is alive and kicking after they overcame a Hugo Lloris gaffe and a sending off to beat Southampton 2-1.

Boss Mauricio Pochettino said it would take time to find unity in his squad after a turbulent summer where several players either wanted to leave or thought they were leaving, but they showed promising signs in a rearguard effort.

Tanguy Ndombele’s goal put them in front early on, but after Serge Aurier was sent off just after the half-hour a calamitous error from Lloris gifted Southampton an equaliser through Danny Ings.

But Harry Kane came to the rescue as he scored a fine team goal, his fifth in the Premier League, to hand Spurs the three points that will go a long way to lifting the gloom at the club. It was their third win of the season and Pochettino will hope that they can move forward ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League clash with Bayern Munich.

Southampton enjoyed a spell of pressure early in the second half, but they did not really threaten an equaliser and slipped to a third defeat of the season.

Just once Spurs would like to do things the easy way and a straightforward afternoon looked a possibility after they enjoyed a promising opening 30 minutes.

After Lloris had thwarted early danger from Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, with a smart stretching save, the home side – and specifically Ndombele – came to life.

The Frenchman has stuttered in his start to football in England, but showed why Spurs broke their transfer record on him.

He carried the ball, beating players, put some dangerous balls into the box and provided a goalscoring threat.

Spurs recycled an attack, the ball fell to Son Heung-min and he teed up Ndombele to lash home an effort that went through Angus Gunn’s grasp.

Any hopes of kicking on from there were abruptly ended in the space of four minutes as Aurier picked up two yellow cards for brainless fouls and was sent off in the 31st minute.

The last thing Spurs needed to do was give Southampton a helping hand, but that is what happened after an unforgivable piece of play from Lloris.

The Frenchman has a reputation for being a liability in possession – not something you want from a goalkeeper whose side play out from the back – and his error gifted the Saints the equaliser in the 39th minute.

Receiving the ball inside his own six-yard box, Lloris inexplicably tried a Cruyff turn with Ings closing in on him, but missed his kick and the Southampton striker’s tackle saw the ball dribble over the line.

It was Lloris’ ninth error leading to a goal in just over three years and surely his worst. Given all the negativity surrounding the club this season it could have been easy for Spurs to sink, but it took them only four minutes to regain their lead.

In a move that started off with Moussa Sissoko, it took just 11 touches for the ball to end up in the back of the net as Kane flicked on a long ball, Son and Christian Eriksen exchanged passes, with the Dane then setting up the England captain to fire into the bottom corner. Lloris was in negative equity after his first-half gaffe but went some way to getting back into credit with a couple of excellent stops after the restart. Southampton seemed to run out of steam and it was Spurs that found a second wind.

Kane was playing a magnificent part in a lone role and it was almost rewarded with a second goal in the final 10 minutes but he drilled an effort wide.

In the end, and perhaps unsurprisingly, Spurs saw it out with relative ease to produce a vital three points.

Colchester 4 Spurs 3 on Penalties

League Two Colchester United produced a huge upset as they beat Premier League Spurs on penalties to reach the Carabao Cup fourth round.

The Essex side – the lowest-ranked team left in the competition – frustrated last year’s semi-finalists throughout the 90 minutes and won a dramatic shootout after Christian Eriksen and Lucas Moura missed from the spot.

After Eriksen’s first kick of the shootout was saved by Dean Gerken, the hosts looked to have wasted their advantage when Jevani Brown tried an audacious ‘Panenka’ effort, which was so weak that Paulo Gazzaniga was able to abort his dive, stand up and punch the ball to safety.

But when Moura smashed Spurs fifth effort against the bar, Tom Lapslie stepped up to send Colchester into the last 16 for the first time in 44 years and prompt wild celebrations.

Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino has yet to win a major trophy during his managerial career, despite an encouraging season in 2018-19 which featured an appearance in the Champions League final and making the last four of this competition.

But his wait for a trophy will go on after the biggest shock he has experienced as a manager.

The Argentine had taken charge of 18 domestic cup ties against lower-ranked opponents since arriving in England with Southampton in 2013 and had never lost.

Spurs are on a gruelling run of seven games in 21 days but they could hardly blame tiredness for this result, with Pochettino making 10 changes from their defeat at Leicester – only keeper Gazzaniga kept his place.

AFP-1KL61V1176864627

There was a first outing of the season for out-of-favour Eric Dier, a return from injury for Dele Alli and debuts for 20-year-old centre-back Japhet Tanganga and 17-year-old forward Troy Parrott, but none pressed their claims to break into their manager’s first-choice XI. Four wins in their past 17 matches suggests something is not quite right.

And what is going on with their away form? They are winless in all five games on the road this season, conceding two goals on four occasions and – most worryingly – now suffering an embarrassing exit from the EFL Cup.
