Short and sweet this week – my Monday round up has hit a direct course for Monday being the first day of the week and lots of stuff left over from last week still to do. My professional life is very much like Arsenal. It’s beautifully executed, I’m hoping I win something this year, and as usual I’ve left a load of shit to the last minute.
Lovely goal though right? I keep saying I don’t like it when Song gets too far up, because it makes me nervous. Well, fuck it, let the boy play centre forward if he wants. I’ll concede it’s been most valuable, and if he continues he might just forget to pick up his customary half way line yellow in each match.
I’ll be brutal, there can’t have been many people across the land filled with much confidence when Clichey a) picked up the ball and b) turned onto his right. What the fuck was he thinking? The cross though, was a beauty, one of those I don’t think he’d be able to replicate if he tried a hundred times.
I singled out Mark Noble in the week on Twitter as being West Hams MVP at the moment. He looked capable of finding a pass all match, and I prefer him in the middle to Parker, but still Parker gets the plaudits.
Anyone remember me suggesting Sunderland could press for Europe? Not on the basis of yesterday. Not sure what the fuck happened, but it happened 5 times. Andy Carroll got me two assists, then went out and glassed a waitress, so he had a good day. Nolan will be a major player when we invite the savages to the Emirates on Sunday – lunchtime kick off, so on a scale of slightly pissed up to death by alcohol poisoning, the away fans will have only reached severe memory loss and partial blindness. None of them will be wearing coats.
It’ll be a totally different game at the weekend to our 4-0 rout in the week, be prepared for a proper fight. Newcastle have got plenty of craft in Barton and Nolan in the middle, and obviously there’s a real chance Carroll will bring a flick knife or broken bottle.
Well, time is running short, but I’m sure you all watched with glee as Spurs conceded the most ludicrous goal ever seen in the premier league. It sort of makes the European shambles we encountered previously, with that terrible quick free kick we conceded, feel less shambolic. It was great laughing at Gomes, I mean what the fuck was he thinking? Fabianski did that and got pummelled as the worst keeper in history, Gomes does it and the press blame the ref.
Be absolutely clear, for a change, the ref did nothing wrong. He didn’t give a penalty, he didn’t see the handball so he continued. When Gomes threw the ball down, the ref was saying “er what are you doing?” and shrugged his shoulders. He was as bemused as the rest of the ground.
Nani shouldn’t have handled the ball. The lino saw it and should have flagged to notify the ref. That is the lino’s job. Regardless, none of that happened, so no free kick was given. Ultimate responsibility must lie with the goalkeeper, as the ball was safely between his two hands and ended up in the goal.
Nani is a horrible diving little prick, and a childish tantruming twat, but as long as he earns me 14 points I don’t care. Hopefully he’ll have a little ‘accident’ the day before we play the rags though. I might keel over and die if he did something like that to us. It’s funny because it’s Spurs.
