What a hectic week, first there was Wembley Sunday and the abject, crushing misery compounded by Man Utd fans and other 'neutrals' abusing me wholesale in the pub. Now I know there is nothing sweeter than another football fans' pain and I shouldn't have bitten but I did, shamefully. I 'd like to apologize to good friends that I called 'stupid cunts' on Sunday, sorry. I'm not going to waste time analysing our performance other more qualified bloggers have already done so and I suggest you seek them out. Its a shit trophy anyway and was never going to make our season and neither is it going to break it.
Alas, poor Ashley, oh dear, how unfair! Wayne Rooney gets away with assault in front of the worlds media and Cole gets pilloried for shooting a trainee in private. What is the world coming to when a brave, skillful and proud English Lion can't shoot who he wants when ever he wants! Is that democracy...? Broken Britain. Anyway as a wise man once said "People don't kill people, Guns kill people"!!...no hang on....Yes!
Wednesday morning Buddhists everywhere were walking around with smug faces going on about karma and stuff as Man Utd's 'Invincibles' lost another game and everything was again right with the world. The fact that there were dodgy decisions from the ref would normally surprise nobody, but the fact that they didn't go Utd's way was astounding. An apoplectic Ferguson ranted about how the Ref was biased (ie not biased toward them) and failed to spot an 'assault' on golden boy Rooney. Its a pity the spineless media hadn't the guts to just say to him "You're a fucking hypocrite". It wouldnt surprise me if Fergie starts bombing his own fans while insisting they all still love him and theres no trouble at all at the club. Utd face a tough trip to Anfield now without their best player (Vidic) and I fancy 'Pool to turn them over...please ...please!
After Irelands heroics in the Cricket World cup I was hoping the back pages wouldn't be all 'Day of the Underdog' and stuff but we easily dispatched Leyton Orient out of the Cup, with a Nicky B hat trick for good measure, fair play to the O's for at least trying to play football and not resorting to GBH! I must give honourable mention to Ignasi Miquel who was brilliant in both games, definitely one for the future.
Kolo, say it ain't so!! Shock all around when the story broke about Kolo Toure failing a drug test but as details are sketchy we shouldn't jump to any conclusions. Some are saying it was a harmless cold remedy but surely the players are well briefed on what they can and can't take or else whats the point of having a medical staff in the first place? Wenger is saying he might have taken one of his wifes diet pills which could have happened I suppose, I mean who hasn't taken one of their wives or partners contraceptive pills to 'see' what would happen...eh?....eh? ...No one ? I see. If he is guilty then he should receive the maximum punishment. The FA must send out a clear message to young people that drug taking will not be tolerated, assaults and shootings are fine but Drugs...Just say no! kids just say no!
Wouldn't it be great to wake Monday just 1 point behind in the title race, the World full of sunshine and peace and suicidal Man Utd fans and Fergie banned and full of indignation resigning with immediate effect and a fully fit Cesc and the medical team realising that there was nothing wrong with Theo and RVP after all and both were ready to go against Barca and Messi had fallen down some steps and his leg had somehow fallen off...........Ah Carlsberg dont do lagers..but if they did....if only they did!!
