Oh my, I don’t quite know what to do with myself… Thomas, we were, you know, a thing…
What the bloody hell did you do to me last night? In front of the whole bloody world.
I am HUMILIATED.
Now the Emery Ultras are saying mean things like…
‘Thomas Tuchel has very mild levels of sauce, like, ‘Doritos’ levels of spice’
‘Emery’s Champions League loss was BETTER than Tuchel’s, fucktard’
‘You backed a manager with a weak hairline. That weak hairline is your opinion’
Upsetting words, I’m sure you’ll agree.
PSG really tanked. It’s going to be hard to explain that one away to the bosses in Paris. United didn’t field a good side, they played like shite, and they still managed to turnover an unbelievably expensive PSG side. No excuses. It was shite. Tuchel’s boys went out far too relaxed. No fire. No aggression. No respect for the CV of a man backed by Fergie, Phelan and the class of 92.
You’ve shown me up, Thomas. Sure, Pep the FRAUD exited in the round of 16 in his first season at City with a 6-6 draw, but you sir do not boast the serial sauce of the master! This is a blight. I don’t quite know how to reconcile this?
YES I DO
In reality, it’s fair to say Ole G channelled a big fat dollop of luck last night after his teams nothing burger performance managed to extract an away win in Paris. It was never a penalty, VAR was a total shambles, but that’s beside the point. United weren’t that good, but they won’t care as they sail on through to the next round of the Champions League. They shithoused Paris. If that were an Italian club we’d all be celebrating a masterful execution that ‘only the Italian’s know how to pull off.’
My main worry isn’t the broken rep of Thomas T, no, it’s what we do on Sunday and how last night impacts the race for #Top4 supremacy.
The real prize of the game is a few fold.
Firstly, United will have exerted a lot of energy chasing after PSG all night. It doesn’t matter how smart your High-Performance backroom team is, it’s going to be tough to recover to peak levels by Sunday.
Secondly, United must continue their little adventure in Europe. That’s two tough legs against a no doubt very good team.
All these little advantages could add up for Arsenal. I’d be very surprised if Rennes make us work hard tomorrow night. They have some good players, but we should dominate them. We should beat them early. We should be able to do it with a fairly second string-ish team. I’m hoping their extended time off (last played Feb 27th) works against them (just like it worked against BATE, lolololol). But we’ll see…
Thirdly, it means United HAVE to sign up Ole G. It makes sense, he’s brought back a bit of buzz to Salford, the fans love him, he conducts himself well in the media and he’s brought the old team back together AND Fergie has been working some magic from a mentorship perspective behind the scenes. It’s the perfect storm.
People keep saying it’ll come unpicked at some point, but I think that’s more hope than anything else. The man knows the club, lives its values and he has enough respect from the world of football to work with top players. I’d prefer him in the role than Poch or Jardim… but I wouldn’t jump to conclusions that this is a flash in the pan. There’s far more to setting up a club than simply having a good manager. OGS understood that well and all I can do is applaud the output.
Finally, United rode their luck SO hard last night. That’s going to come crashing down at some point. So fingers crossed Emery is the man to deal that blow to their season. Bit of a shit point, but fuck it, why not?
SO, all in all… it’s been another good week.
Arsenal have to work their way through Rennes tomorrow, avoiding injuries and tight hamstrings… then we’re betting it all on a Sunday afternoon massacre. We have to be careful of the counter-attack, we have to play aggressively and make their tired legs an advantage, and we have to work our way around the CORRUPT FERGIE MAFIA THAT HAS NO DOUBT BEEN IN CONTACT WITH THE OFFICIALS.
Should be fun.
See you in the comments, I’m just going outside for a little walk… no… seriously, I’m ok. x
P.S. I looked up and saw Roma lost in the last 16. Face back down in the puddle.
