Well it could be worse. you could have woken up to discover you were Roy Hodgson.
Last night’s footy was quite mad across the board. Chelsea lost another wheel last night losing to Wolves. The French found Joe Hart in too finer form in a game that mirrored our own season opening tussle in many respects. The double sending off was spot on, but to be frank I would have shown Song a straight red just for looking like an Ipswich pimp.
Everton just looked more like a team that played football on the floor and it makes me cringe when we hit the ball over Modder’s head and turn possession into a 50/50 ball. Crouch out.
I acknowledge that the knockdown balls to VdV work, but at what ratio? One in 27 resulting in a goal? I don’t like it and I’d like us to stop doing it. It’s quite unseemly all this hoofing and hoping. What is this an open audition for an Old Time Dancing show or one of the world’s most stylish sides trying to play football?
