Just watched MotD. Woke up early. My summary of the day’s footie…
Arse get 2 OGs courtesy of a shite Southampton side. But I will say arse were unlucky not to keep another clean sheet, with the ball dropped by keeper for Southampton’s goal. Although saying that, Lambert shud’ve scored in 2nd half. But arse looked good on the day. Podolski could be one to watch every week – he looked so confident and didn’t care what stage he was on.
Mancs. Laughable pen given at OT. Hilarious. Shame we didn’t have a ref like that. Or any other ref on the planet, actually. Scholesy gets his 700th appearance, what a player he’s been over the years. Red-nose still relying on him, though, which is dragging out the man’s career at the top, but scholes has been an excellent example to the game itself over the years. I will point out the obvious and say the mancs were more than fortuitous with a couple of their goals. But good shot by newcomer Powell, & Buttner also amongst it. Wigan’s defence was shit on the day, though.
Fulham. Berbatov has some confidence back. Odemwingie should get banned for 6 games. Twat.
Villa. The Swansea result surprised me. Excellent shot for villa’s first goal, but late silly mistake by Williams gave villa their 2nd on 87mins. Game over.
Stoke. Crouchy’s goal was funny, although helped with his hand, but he went thru’ 3 city defenders to score it, beating Lescott in the air in the first place. Looking at the few chances it was city who wud’ve felt they shud’ve had 3 points.
Sunderland. Scousers managed to claw back a point after riding their usual luck. Suarez is a fkn cheat. A giveaway goal by S’land’s Bramble sees the scousers grab a point.
Onto our game. Ferdinand is a twat. What a wnkr. Terry tried to shake hands. If Plug’s brother had shaken hands I think the crowd would’ve actually all cheared and everyone could get on with life. The FA are pelased they didn’t as they can continue with their own face-saving investigation (after stripping Terry of the England captaincy before he was proven guilty, which he wasn’t, and losing an England manager of it). On to the footie – Hazard shud’ve put his laces on 2. Terry shud’ve had a pen. Hazard shud’ve had a pen. Both stone wall. Mariner was an absolute knt. The 5 mins shown on MotD didn’t show how we controlled the game. Di Matteo was obviously looking at the Juve game on Wednesday, hence the line-up. But I’d have rather tried to get an early goal with a highly attacking team, get two goals up and then rest Mata, Oscar or Hazard, or two of them. Not start with Bertrand as a left side in a 4-2-3-1. Odd. The QPR fans’ celebrations on the final whistle at managing to steal a point off us at their own tiny ground showed how lucky they felt, but also showed what a tiny miniscule two-bob pathetic little club they are. Their tin-pot shack of a ground is not safe, with that upper tier having far too small gangway. They were still selling tickets for the game up ’til kickoff and still didn’t sell out. It did look full, but they weren’t sold out. lol. Two points dropped by us. I will add, though, that if you have to rely on a ref being fair in penalty awards (no matter how obvious & stone wall they are) against a two-bob team like QPR then you don’t really deserve to win. Which we didn’t.
Norwich. Pikeys were unlucky not to score at carrow road, but more so were norwich! Pathetic late finishing by Norwich cud’ve seen 2 goals.
