Positives have to include Crouch’s game efforts to cleanse himself of the Real Madyid fiasco, Modders scored, Dances With Scones was back to an extent and it emerged that Super Romancrazypavinchenko is quite good at playing football.
Negatives to be factored in would be quite simply if we are unable to hold a two goal lead againist Stoke City, then perhaps the task against Joso Mourinho’s boys ought to be undertaken in Bernie Clifton ostritches and at least we could say we were doing it for charity.
We’ve now scored I think about half a dozen goals less than Citeh, which even to twitching wannabe tax exile says we have not so much a scoring problem – although Defoe should be swapped for someone with more to their game than ‘under me right foot and piiiing!’ – but a defensive one.
Citeh are quite frugal with how many they score, but this is compensated by the fact they conceed very few. We do not.
The Woodgate and King thing needs to be addressed once and for all and before a ball is kicked next season and without fail. Sod the ‘Long Live The King’ brigade. He’s finished. Lots of love, respect, kudos and lingering hugs, fit some platinum castors on him and send him out to stud and graze in the Essex nightclub scene. Woody should be given a VW Campervan, The Hair Bair Bunch Collection on DVD, a suitcase full of money and a map of the world.
Word today is that HisNameIsRioAndHe’sAlwaysInTheStands was approached. Wonderfully ambitious. Who next, Frankie Lampard? Let’s stop fannying about and shore up Kaboul and Dawson and get on with it. There are lots of top notch defenders out there. And much easier business than trying to land a striker.
That is all.
