It’s a long time since I saw someone do that to a corner, 10 defenders in the goal area and one Nicklas Bendtner leaps above them all and powers a header into the back of the net, well done super Nick!
Tottenham, like many before them, came to shut us down and get in our faces and very nearly succeeded, it really frustrates me when we stop getting at teams the way they get to us, that yesterday was the equivalent of a warning shot over our footballing bows!
Never play 4-5-1, why? It doesn’t work, we can’t play teams like Spurs defensively at home, it’s an insult, it’s inviting them on.
Like against the Chavs, the minute we go 4-4-2 we start to rip teams apart.
4-5-1 when we play Real Madrid away and we have TH14 to run the length of the pitch and score works, but Ade up front alone cuts a sad forlorn figure.
Super Nick is still only 19, Ade only 23 and when Croc Robin comes back and partners one of them we’ll have a forward line that can beat anyone, so Arsene, play them, pleeeeeease!
Rosicky and Eboue playing at the same time looks predictable, neither for me unpick defences like a forward pairing, so sacrifice one of them and go 4-4-2.
Other news is the average age of AC Milan is 31.7 which means what exactly? Didn’t they just win the Champions league? The only heartening thing is they are 22 points behind Inter, so perhaps they’re not the team they were.
Top marks to Almunia for the penalty save and although I thought he was at fault for the first, when I saw the replays there was a wicked deflection off Kolo, so well done the Spanish waiter.
Cesc wasn’t at his best but one moment of magic made up for that.
Spurs think they were hard done by missing a penalty, I think they were lucky getting one, so my simple logic says we were hard done by.
We’ll see how it goes with response on Le Grove over Christmas, but expect to see us post.
Let’s hope for a draw with the Mancs today, we don’t want Everton too far up themselves as we play them soon.
I’ve insulted nobody today and I won’t as it’s Christmas, but watching the Irish twins Robbie and Roy have such a shit day, warmed the cockles of my heart, thank you both you pair of nasty bastards.
I apologise unreservedly to any bastards out there.
