Well what a weekend, sunshine, sea and sand….
Ok, I don’t mean that really, a good weekend of football for us despite not playing ourselves..
There was me, driving up the A34 wondering how long it would take me to catch up with all the comments after the weekend games – that didn’t take too long 😉
Fat Sam managed to get his Blackburn side to huff and puff and stop the Mancs from scoring, good two points dropped in the title race, certainly good for us. The Chavs are still in the FA Cup after a run around on the dreadful turf at Wembley, lets hope that the surface took an extra bit out of the players legs and they are knackered for their next game.
The one result that made me smile, and smile big time was Portsmouth, a team relegated from the English Premier League a few days ago which I think all stems from being mis-managed a couple of seasons ago, played their hearts out at Wembley yesterday and rightfully earned a place in the FA Cup Final. The bigger bonus there is that they took the game into extra time, one hundred and twenty minutes of football played, surely both sides must be exhausted!! That won’t bother Pompey, but it might bother you know who…
Lets hope so, because just in case anyone has forgotten, we have a little game on Wednesday night against the side who Pompey conquered. We know every game is a must win one from now until the end of the season, but this one is a must win match for added reasons, I’m sure we will get to that before the kick off…..
At the moment we know that for the Spuds, Wilson Palacios is out due to suspension, Niko Kranjcar is out through injury and Vedran Corluka had to be given treatment at half time, so lets just hope his pain keeps him out of the game on Wednesday.
‘Arry has said that despite the lows of yesterday he would pick a home fixture against us to be his next game!
I wonder if he will be saying the same around 10pm Wednesday – I don’t think so, do you??
Bouldy’s Boys did it again at the weekend, they beat Charlton 2-1 away from home. Having gone 1-0 down after half an hour and it stayed that way until the last twenty minutes of the game. Benik Afobe scored the equaliser then six minutes later, newly introduced substitute Zac Ansah scored the winner to secure all three points.
Arsenal are now 14 points clear at the top of Premier Academy Under-18s Group A.
The Ladies also won at the weekend, beating Everton 1-0 at home. Captain Jayne Ludlow was sent off after a ‘confrontation’ with Everton’s midfielder Fara Williams – confrontations, sending’s off in Ladies Football, what is the world coming to?
I jest of course!!
The question on will he or won’t he will be answered this week, Wednesday in fact….. I hope it’s a He Will….
