....said he would be routing for the scouse tomorrow on the basis they were an English team.. I politely disagreed as I don't see it like that at all as their fans are a bunch of self-entitled whingers and hypocrites. Horrible little fuc kers.
Real are vulnerable though and they are also self-entitled posers. 'We are Real' they say, meaning that due to their history regardless of the quality of the current team or the opposition they will win! We will see.
Knowing the love for Left wing gender politics news on this football fans site I couldnt resist this:
A middle-aged man with a beard has been accepted to stand for a woman-only position in a local Labour Party branch because he “identifies” as female for a few hours a day once a week. The Basingstoke Labour Party accepted David Lewis, 45, as an official candidate for their “women’s officer” role, where he will be responsible for representing women’s issues and recruiting more females.
Watched it on a pretty decent NBCSN stream where Mark Clattenberg was a pre-match pundit who then fed his comments through to the commentators regarding the refereeing decisions throughout the match(!) Lovely.
I tried various breathing techniques in the last 15 minutes none of which worked and just about avoided soiling myself. I think I am still suffering PTSD from the Everton goal last week.
Well done to Hughes and the boys. Now there are no doubts that mistakenly employing managers with no leadership abilities whatsoever can be catastrophic.
No more mealy mouthed management speak and spin now please.
Gao needs to count his blessings in Mark Hughes and show HIS leadership.
With my very limited football analytical ability I have taken a look at the remaining fixtures and have put in quite conservative results (including the Saints ones) which would actually save us on goal difference. Obviously 3 points from the Everton or Swans game would make the world of difference. Would appreciate predicted scores from anyone who actually knows what they are talking about! eg. Did I miss any factors here?
Swansea City Poss Points BMTH A 1 SAINTS H 1 STOKE H 1 TOT 3 36
Huddersfield MAN CITY A 0 CHELSEA A 0 ARSENAL A 0 TOT 0 35 (GD -29)
West Ham LEICESTER A 1 MAN U H 0 EVERTON H 1 TOT 2 37
Stoke PALACE H 1 SWANSEA A 1 TOT 2 32
Saints EVERTON A 1 SWANSEA A 1 MAN CITY H 1 TOT 3 35 (GD -19)
I expect all types of slagging off for this but honestly that was a tedious and unnesesary disraction from the task at hand - trying to keep us in the EPL, albeit I hate so much about it; I don't want the prospect years of potential impoverishment for the club. The absolute mystery for me is was the hell is Gao thinking or even doing, not just now but at any time? Does anyone have a clue?
