Last night, I couldn’t bring myself to watch the Arsenal game on Football First, I had already watched most of it on a stream and it felt like I had watched the same game for the last 5 months anyway.
But I couldn’t resist it, I thought just watch the highlights on MOTD.
As usual I had to sit and watch every other game before the Arsenal game was shown.
After about three minutes the Arsenal game was over no analysis which is not a major problem as Hanson and Shearer are serial Arsenal haters anyway.
One of the games I watched was the Fulham v Portsmouth game. Not a bad game to watch and both teams had there chances in the first twenty minutes of the game, it could have gone either way. But as you know it ended 3-1 to Fulham.
After the game one of our heroes big Tone was interviewed and like the great man he is never shirked the questions but he was obviously under a lot of pressure.
Anyway back to the studio, I cannot remember the exact words but the way Alan ” I have never been a manager” Shearer talked about Tony Adams’s position as manager of Portsmouth was disgusting, he had a smirk on his face on every comment and his one liners were just putting the boot in.
I remember Shearer stamping on Tony Adams many years ago I don’t know what year, It was near the corner flag and the referee missed it and it so got put in front of the FA but they threw it out because Shearer was England captain at the time.
Oh can I wait for that geordie tosser to become manager of Newcastle.
On to yesterdays game, what a bore feast that was.
I haven’t done any player ratings (if someone wants to, I can stick them in later), We may as well use the same ones as jonjon used on Fridays post, apart from the only real highlight from Wednesday RVP was left on the bench.
Oh Mr Arsene why, oh why? One theory is he was on 4 yellows and if he got another he would miss the Spud game. Well that backfired as we lost 2 points yesterday by not playing him, it was like he was banned for one game anyway, sometimes Arsene, sometimes.
Nasri is starting to look like the only other player coming out of the season with any real credit, it’s just a pity that he is the only one who is capable of breaking into the opponents penalty area in a forwards direction.
Mr wenger is also moaning that every team keeps coming to the Emirates and defending, perhaps he should look no further than our style of play. We just keep the ball passing sideways, what are the other teams supposed to do run down our end of the pitch and let us walk it in.
We are suffocating the play if we played deeper we would have space to run into but we don’t break with any pace anymore.
The only good piece of news is that the £47 tickets for the Spud game next week were sold to Arsenal fans for £37 because of a administrative cock up and the Spuds want there tenner back. ha ha don’t forget to wave your tenners at the spuds next Sunday.
