Are we all happy with yesterday?
The Boss sprung a surprise with his team selection, deciding to play Yoshi perhaps to counter the effect of Mario playing up front for Citeh. We dominated the game from start to finish, the only disappointing aspect of the game was the fact we didn’t score more goals. Vermaelen decided he didn’t want RVP to score so cleared off the Citeh line with his back. In the second half he thought he would miss from 3 yards before watching in disbelief as Yoshi managed to miss from 3 millimeters.Van Persie hit the post with a header to continue his goal scoring drought(not exactly Torres is he, fucking media) and Walcott also managed to draw a top class save from Hart.
After watching everybody contrive to not score Mikel and his G.I Joe hair decided he had seen enough. In the 87th minute he robbed Pizarro of the ball in midfield before striding on and smashing one in from 25 yards. It was no more than he and the rest of the team deserved for their efforts.
Now for Mario. For those who havent seen the tackle here is a snapshot from the Mail Website. The man is a walking lunatic. After trying to break Song’s kneecap he then proceeded to try his best to kick Bacary for the rest of game. He finally got his marching order in the last few minutes of the game for a second bookable offence. Whether the FA further punish him remains to be seen but severe fines need to handed out for these kinds of tackles.
I don’t tend to like to discuss transfer gossip (at least not until we are certain it’s no longer gossip) but I had to talk about this piece courtesy of the Mirror Online. Apparently we are all set to sell our £10 million pound BFG according to a ‘report’. We are all used to various anonymous sources proclaiming this and that about transfers involving our club but this is just lazy. I could type something here about us signing Neymar & Gotze but it doesn’t make it printable as a reliable report in a newspaper. At least put a bit of effort into the piece before publishing.
Finally its good to see the reason for Na$ri’s move has come to fruition, Citeh now stand on the verge of Prem glory, oh wait they don’t. He will win the same amount of trophies at the other shower as Arsenal. At least he has his true love to console him, shedloads of Sheikh cash. Petite Pute indeed.
Late Update – The Spuds have lost today, we now play 3 league games before the next so we have an excellent chance to cement third place
