Wednesday is here and I have only but a few words for you.
#1 Big fat keeper sacked
Ok, ok… the big fat keeper eating a pie was one of the most monumental pieces of patriotism I’ve seen all year. A fat man, eating a pie? Fucking lost my mind didn’t I? Why? Because pie is BRITISH.
But scrape back the total nonsense of this act and you start to realise that this is a total damn bullshit.
> You are on the bench against Arsenal for your club in a mega game and you try and make it all about yourself? SELFISH!
> At half time, you slink into the bar because you want to make it all about the tubby lad who loves a pint? SELFISH!
> Finally, you sink a delicious pie in front of the cameras, when your team is kind of chasing a game? SELFISH!
Then you hear the whole thing was orchestrated by the dishonest media? SAD!
But here’s the thing, footballers are being identified and caught up in all sorts of dirty betting scandals. Joey ‘I watched Steven Fry once’ Barton has 1000+ allegations against him and he’s still playing, but forget his elite treatment because he has a mean twitter account and more than £40 in his pocket, betting scandalization is a serious issue.
So when I read the keeper had been sacked, I thought it was bang on. Then I thought, shit me, he’s been coaxed into this by the DISHONEST FAKE MEDIA who were Sutton’s shirt sponsors. Isn’t that disgraceful? That keeper sleeps 3 nights a week at the home ground. He’s part of the fabric of the club and he’s been fired, because he took orders from a bunch of slithery marketing execs at a tabloid betting arm that fund his beloved club.
I hope the DISHONEST TABLOID BETTING COMPANY support him and help him out. Their stupid marketing idea has lost a man who probably earns f*ck-all-a-year his job. That’s not fair, regardless of how dim he is. At least that Irish betting company, the kings of crass, pony up for their b-grade Ladbible (before they tried to go serious and build a mature business model badging up free things their team found on Reddit) style banter (Nik B pants).
#2 Wenger’s class shines through with Sanchez inclusion
I read about how Conte said the only way he’ll play John Terry moving forward is if he’s fit enough and right for the game. No sentimentality. So Arsene Wenger plays Alexis Sanchez against a team that had tried to two-foot one of our players in a nasty incident brushed off as ‘top class from a lad who probably has a mushroom pie in his kit bag.’ Then tried a Sunday League flying headbutt on Chamberlain because he was fast.
‘Classy Arsenal bring on Sanchez as a show of respect for Sutton fans’
Please. There’s nothing classy about throwing on your best player in a nothing game to please others. Embarrassing. That’s a manager who doesn’t care, or, that’s a manager who thinks the season is done. Exactly the sort of carry on that could mean the difference between 4th and 6th. Terrible management that felt like a PR coup for a media who are gunning hard for his future.
#Jardim must be off your list?
Manchester City and Monaco clocked in one of the most exciting games of the season when they beat the French club 5-3. The game was wild, back and forth, attacking football at its best. Unpredictable until the end. Monaco shit the bed eventually, but they earned 3 away goals and it was hardly an easy win for Pep and the most expensive set of misfits in the Prem.
Arsenal fans thought that meant the end of Jardim on my list. They were mistaken.
Jardim is topping the French league against a PSG wage bill of €250m versus their €84m. Put that in perspective, Swansea, West Brom and Crystal fucking Palace have more expensive totals than them. He’s rocking a young team that has scored the most goals in Europe this season, boasting a scintillating style of football you’d f*cking die for at Arsenal.
He’s taking City to Monaco and all he has to do is score two goals against a poor defence, with a team that has rocked 46 goals in 14 games at home.
Arsenal fans, please don’t tell me you wouldn’t bite your arm off to go toe-to-toe with City like that in a major game that mattered… Imagine what Jardim would do with our resources?
#4 THIS BANNER YES
Love that there’s all this Brexit stuff going on, stuff that is genuinely going to affect the people of Britain, and we have folk protesting America… a reminder… NOTHING YOU DO IN LONDON WILL AFFECT AMERICA.
Right, that’s me done. See you in the comments. x
P.S. Comment section goes back to nice as of NOW. I spend too many hours writing this to be dealing with people who can’t behave like adults. If you want to play below the fold, treat your fellow Gooner with love, reverence and a nice third compliment of your choice. If you have to be mean, there are plenty of other places to vent your spleen. Not here though. Blog of love.
