Vol Sport Review: What We Learnt From This Weekend

Mourinho’s still in trouble, Rosberg can win a race… when it doesn’t matter and New Zealand are still good at rugby.

Saturday started with everyone asking the question, Is it finally time for Chelsea’s fortunes to change? The answer was an emphatic no. Then something that was not a surprise… all aboard the Mourinho excuse bus. This week the Portuguese gave a memorable post match interview. Memorable not for an outburst. But for his inability to co-operate. “I have nothing to say” repeated Mourinho for a whole, painful two minutes of questioning.

Elsewhere in the premier league. Arsenal kept up their title chase, with an impressive 3-0 win over an out of sorts Swansea. Jamie Vardy continued his goal scoring ways and Romelu Lukaku unleashed his inner Mesut Ozil, with the assist of the season in a 6-2 win for Everton. Piling on the misery for lowly Sunderland, who can seemingly only beat their north east rivals.

After a long wait F1 was back in Mexico on Sunday and it was certainly worth the wait. The  Mexican fans came out in huge numbers creating an amazing atmosphere at the Hemanos Rodrigues track. The highlight being the cleverly designed baseball stadium within the track that created a noise rarely heard in F1, especially when home town hero Sergio Perez drove through. A Mercedes one-two was an unsurprising outcome, with Rosberg finally managing to convert a pole position into a race win.

After two months of Rugby across the country, New Zealand were crowned the winners of the World cup 2015. A result many expected. But after a one-sided first half, the Australians came back into it, only for the all blacks to pick up the pace and take it away from them late on. 34-17 was the final score, making it the highest rugby world cup final score in history. A thoroughly entertaining match and a great way to end an incredible tournament.
