Had we been offered 13 precious points before the Christmas period we would have bitten Santa’s hand off would we not? The fact the Chavs beat Fulham and we are all disappointed means we are all getting spoiled by their decline and are beginning to expect them to screw up.
Don’t forget, it was only Fulham! I am more concerned about those stacking up behind us than those in front, shitty won last night albeit luckily, the spuds won, the scousers won, in fact the only team that lost was Villa, and that’s only because we flattened them on Sunday.
I’m still crowing over that game! I hope we can continue that second half performance against Pompey, we won’t have Cesc for that game, but we will have Theo, and I think he was almost as responsible for our second half change as Cesc was, he terrified them with him trickery and he laid on a pinpoint pass for Cesc to score his second.
Let’s not forget Diaby either, he is starting to become influential in games, he even topped Sunday’s off with a little pearler, he went largely unnoticed because of the Cesc cameo, but he was impressive, I hope he can keep that up.
So in theory we only have 3 more days to go until we find out if we are getting new players on board, I don’t think he’ll wait until the end of the month because by then he’ll have Bendtner back and will have an excuse not to buy.
Champions league football makes no difference to players joining, look at Barry, Adebayor, Robinho, Tevez and soon to be Torres and Gerrard, so I don’t think we will have problems signing Chamakh or Dzeko, as Bordeaux have no chance of winning the ECL and Dzeko is only cup tied, his value, in theory has gone down because of that but either way, they are both available and we should act, a big front man will make a difference, as will a ready made defensive midfielder.
I really don’t think we need a Cesc replacement, we have Ramsey, Nasri, Rosicky and even Jay Emmanuel Thomas that can slot in there.
Next up Pompey, and don’t forget the last time we played them they had all their spud players before Harry bought them and we played a virtual youth team, we still spanked them!
It’s on live and I can’t wait, football’s coming thick and fast and I love it.
Have a great day Grovers, tomorrow we get another 3 points!
