I’m not sure what’s happening. It’s like all the pain and suffering we went through early season has been recognised by the footballing gods and now they’re offering us an olive branch. Once again Arsenal took three points. Yet again, those three points were made to look all the more¬†glamorous¬†against the back drop of some fantastic dropped points from our nearest and dearest.

Pinch me, I must be dreaming.

Everton come to town as Arsene challenges the squad to show mental strength

by & filed under News Review.

Good morning Grovers! Football is back this evening as we take on a tricky tie at Everton. David Moyes did us a huge favour last week when he took three points off Spurs on his tenth anniversary as manager. It was a game Everton scarcely deserved to win, which made the result all the more hilarious. If it told us anything it’s that Everton away can be a tricky prospect and that if we don’t put away our chances, they have the fire power to punish us. It’s also worth noting we have a defence that enjoys a good punishment. Masochists.

This boot was seen at Heathrow last night...

Welcome to Tuesday everyone. One day before we play Everton. It feels like an age since we last played. I feel rested as a fan, I’m sure you do too… maybe you’ve been a bit irritable, perhaps you’ve been taking the lack off football out on your family pet, if you have been, that’s wrong and you should apologise. Anyway, if we’re feeling rested, I’m hoping the players do as well. It should be a cracking game and one of the more winnable variety. Everton snatched a win against Spurs maybe a bit against the run of play, then they were spanked by Liverpool. If we can take our second half performances and extrapolate the goodness across 90 minutes… we should smash them.

I’ll have more of a preview tomorrow, so I won’t waste it all now.
