Le’Arse are good value for money, though not always in the way they expected. [Y] Excellent game for the neutral, and I’m sure all the Mancs and Spuds got an enormous kick out of it. Hilarious comment straight out of the wretched hive of scum that is F365:

Senderos is to direct balls as Dracula is to crosses.

Not to mention the hilarity of “poor” Bridge being clunked so badly (*cough*) he was claiming delight for all 3 pts, as well as the sight of furious Goons reverting to form and calling the trophy the Mickey Mouse Cup again. PREEEEEECIOUS.

P.S: How essential is Dimitar Berbatov to Spurs?

Madness at the Valley(tm)

It’s HT with the Addicks and the Hammers socking it to each other like the pathetic sight of condemned men fighting over the last drumstick before the hanging and the drawing and quartering. Result?

Charlton 3-0 West Ham

More to follow. (I don’t doubt in other enclaves in London…say, the Emmigration and the Lane without the Tube…..folks are savouring this like sweet, sweet ambrosia) 

And there you have it at FT: 4-0, courtesy of Jerome Thomas and the Bent Worth 18m(tm). Even JFH had an assist or two. That said, unless Wigan falls deeper into the mire, it might be too little, too late for Pardew’s re-energized side.

The match was probably the encapsulation of West Ham’s woeful, woeful season. Their fans will probably have to endure “You’re Going Down” chants by opposition for at least 10 more games before they slip off quietly into the night.

The Wonderful World of BBC “Punditry”

Kevin Nolan is already the talk (snickering talk, but he’ll take
whatever comes) of the footballing community with his staggeringly
insipid columns for Aunt Beeb. But his most recent needs an award for
the “Most Boring Depiction of A Decadent Footballer’s Holiday” category:

After training every day we had to spend 15 minutes in the sea as part of our warm-down.

Needless to say, lots of the players start splashing each other.

The other day I jumped on Ricardo Gardner’s back and dunked him.

He emerged from the water in something of a panic, wagging his finger in my direction.

Few in this world could pull off dull and gay in the same tone, but Nolan has managed it. Here in dinky Singapore, we salute ye.

Strapping Black Dudes

Duh Magnet
“The 19-year-old is in talks with the Gunners over a new deal but is free to talk to other clubs after 1 January.”

Its not like he’s playing a lot in Arsenal. Fact: Arsene likes strapping black dudes.

Duh Magnet
Once you go black, you can never go back!
