It seems like a rare Premiership away fixture today, we go to the land of Dandelion and Burdock and Black Bullets.
A miscarriage of justice came to light the other day; a man wrongly accused of murder served 27 years in jail. I was moved by the thought of how long that was to spend in prison for a crime he didn’t commit and just how difficult it would be for him to re-adjust to life outside as so much has changed during that time. But, then I thought, reassuringly for him, some things certainly haven’t changed at all 1, Glory Glory Totnum Hotspur haven’t won the league (that’s 47 years lol) and 2, Newcastle haven’t won “k” all.
They are the Spuds of the north except they make the Spuds trophy cabinet look like it’s Real Madrids..
Last time they won the league 1927 , last time they one the FA cup 1955, where does it all go wrong? They spend more than us? They have a similar size following to us in this country?
Serial underachievers, serial manager changers, they run there club management structure on the grass is greener theory. If only the boys and girls from the British forces got as much compensation when they are injured or the families when they are killed, as the ex managers from these two clubs do when they get sacked.
There is another old saying “You never see Kevin Keegan on a pushbike” well not for long..
I’m glad that superstars isn’t on anymore because if any of our players went on that programe we would never see them again with our luck with injuries. Theo was walking along and his leg locked and he is possibly out for the rest of the season, it can only happen to us..
Like when Charlie George cut his toe off with a lawnmower or Perry Groves knocked himself out hitting his head on the dug out roof.
Slightly concerning is Theo’s contract situation and indeed Rosicky’s. Theo has been out for three months and he still hasn’t signed a new deal.. what has he been doing? I am hoping they are a bit more grateful than Bischoff who Wenger rescued from a German scrap heap, nursed back to health whilst being paid, now seems to want to join Sporting Lisbon in front of us.. There was a clue there when he played for the Portugese Under 21’s rather than the French who he played for in his younger days at Under 18 level..
There seems to be a team that breeds thugs to play for them, Leeds and two teams that buy them in.. West ham and Newcastle. You can chuck Man City in the mix now with Barton and what his name? Not Lee Evans… that’s it Craig Bellamy. These teams and useless overpaid English tossers seem to find each other.
Team for today..
..Sagna.. Toure.. Gallas.. Clichy.
..Nasri.. Diaby.. Denilson.. Arshavin.
…………………………Van the Man (fingers crossed).
The score 2-1 to us but I am hoping for a whole bunch more..
Oh and Dandelion and Burdock is a drink a bit like Cola that Geordies drink until the age of seven when Newcastle brown Ale takes over as there favourite tipple..
Have a good day roadsters..
