Good bloody morning! I’m back in the UK and it feels fucking GREAT!
We have a fresh podcast coming out for you tomorrow, Matt is fresh off a seperate podcast with Ian Wright for The Sun. Life couldn’t be better.
Well, it could be… GLORY ON SATURDAY would restore my faith in humanity. You know what else could? Arsenal giving £50,000 to help the fund for the victims of the Manchester disaster the other day. Nice work Arsenal, would be great to see other clubs follow in the same footsteps, I’ve no doubt the proper ones will.
Injury news is not looking particularly good for Wembley. Kieran Gibbs, a doubt, most likely him bottling it as per usual… let’s see what he’s made of. Laurent K is suspended. Mustafi apparently won’t make it. Leaving us with Holding and the horrible prospect of an incredibly rusty Per Mertesacker. That for me is just a total no-go… but if things get much worse, we really won’t have a choice.
Jose Mourinho won the Europa League last night. He took a Stoke game plan to squeeze out a victory against an incredibly green Ajax team. What a boring game. What made it even more hilarious was him palming it off as a treble. Like, gotta be the worst treble of all time. The tin pot Europa League and a League Cup.
Honestly, United fans can clap their wonderful manager, but really, that’s a silver bandage if ever I saw one. Durgy football, uninspired players, and a terrible year in the league. Call the trophies what you want, but that would not be exciting me if I were a United fan. It’d be the same sub-dread I have about Arsenal winning the FA Cup 4-0. Like a really spicy indian, good in the moment, but the pain the next day is regretful.
Also, all the… ‘BUT LOOK AT WENGER YOU MUST BE JEALOUS’
Get the fuck out of my face, you don’t need me to say that Wenger is done. I’ve led the calls. He’s being touted for the chop, but Mourinho, with WAY more investment, is being championed as a genius. Puuuuuurlease. I think he’ll struggle next season as well. But hey, we’ll see.
< ONE GOOD THING ABOUT THE WIN IS IT WAS FOR THE PEOPLE OF MANCHESTER >
Anyway, that was my breaker slide. Danny Welbeck might also be injured for the final. Alfred called him as a ‘potential’ unexpected hero… being that he’ll miss a sitter in a dead game versus Everton, but he’ll score a winner away at Old Trafford. Would be nice to have him available.
Two players who WILL be fit are Chambo and Alexis. I mean, Alexis. You’d have to talk him down from playing if he stepped on a landmine. The guy would walk through brick walls with stumps. He’s literally our only hope, because we’re pretty sure Ozil will go missing as per usual? Our puff pastry, only comes out to play under perfect conditions.
Right, that’s all I have time for today because I actually have to talk to family and stuff.
SO GOOD TO BE BACK LOVE LONDON! x
