Or a John Virgo trick shot

Just need Ted Lowe to be commentating ‘ and the young man from Gabon is about to take the penalty....and he’s missed it’. Ray Reardon is in the background, grinning in a Dracula sort of way

Arsenal will be 10th tomorrow evening after the Palace/Brighton game regardless of the result. That must be the lowest they've ever been by this time of the season surely?!

I’ve read some of the stuff you have written before- really impressed with the following excerpts from your works to rival Shakey (Will that is, not Craig):

 

- either side could have won the game

- it was a game of two halves

if they had won today it would be 14pts behind us, the same as Man Utd. They would still only be 1pt behind Tottenham and only a fool is completely writing off Man Utd and Tottenham of having no chance of catching us.

 

Arsenal losing today is probably the best result for us. 

I suppose I'm also basing it on form and their wretched defence but to use an analogy you have used yourself, even if Arsenal were to improve and play from now on as they did last year (5th place/70pts) they would end up with 61 points and if we did likewise (9th/52pts) we would end up with 68 points.  We are much better than last year.

 

On the same basis:

 

Chelsea 69pts

Spurs 65 pts

Man Utd 62pts

 

I think that realistically, the gap is too big to be hauled in as we near the half way mark, even if we only played at last year's level.

Honestly if we keep playing as we have been and grinding results out; whether that be wins or draws, we stand in a great place to have European football next year.

I don't disagree but as far as the top four goes and before today's match there was more chance of Arsenal finishing top four than Man City finishing 5th or lower.

 

Hence why today was a good result for our top four ambitions.

Classic, instead of taking blame and saying they weren't good enough, they blame the officials. 

It's a jump and the arm has gone into de gea, it's one where if the official gives a foul it isn't over turned, but same the other way as well.

That's what annoyed me about Gary Neville today, 10 mins into the 2nd half and he was still whining that De Gea didn't complain to the officials. Work out how to get back in the game rather that sulking about 'what ifs'.

Can only be good for us as it shows that there really can be a big trade off for the big bucks .....(though drinks has also shown that ) .... sort of hope it only gets worse for him in this regard ......

Surely he should realise if the player supposedly fouled isn't complaining it suggests it isn't a foul? De gea in that situation let's DCL jump first and into his space rather than puffing his shoulders out and commanding his area.

Exactly! Once the decision is confirmed there's no point droning on about it. The past few years I preferred him to Carragher but this season I have to say that Carragher is much better to listen to, it helps when your team has done brilliant but even on non Man Utd games Neville just goes on about Man Utd's problems, who they need to magically buy and become great again. You're sh*t now, get over it! lol

That was a shit week. I hope next week is better for us.

We've had a lot of good weeks. So don't protest too much.:) The Football Gods will think us greedy. And that right before we face Everton (cup) Manchester City and Liverpool.

Saying a few prayers before I go to bed tonight.:sweating:

We all said it about Maguire but we were by and large told how ridiculous we were for thinking Evans was better (after you know, actually watching them both for us). What do you know.
