See You Under The Lights

First up – apologies for another collapse this afternoon. I’m not talking about the incident in Asda where it dawned on me that ‘picking up a few bits’ was a poor idea after a morning of perfecting the ultimate Absolute Cranberry.

I understand that the person responsible for HH being offline again was dragged by their ear to a place that everyone else in the static home office could readily view them and severely pistol whipped with a Luger. A fitting repercussion on a day that would’ve been the Fuhrer’s birthday.

So to the football.

Arsenal drift from one fiasco to another. After the humiliating business of their learned manager not understanding how additional time works, we got fresh meat today courtesy of Fibreglass claiming his comments in the Spanish press were ‘misinterpreted’.

‘Lost In Translation’ was a cracking film, but like much of the guff that emanates from the Emptycrates this is just more whinging, whining and the usual cobblers that befits a club that lives in its own cuckoo land of reasoning.

I think we’ll smash them. I don’t just want this to happen but genuinely believe it will be the outcome.

The strategy for this contest ought be a simple one. The French are at their best when they have the ball and the space with which to ping it about amongst their better midfielders. The way to nullify this is by retaining possession of course but also by attacking.

Our wing-back’s contributions worry me. A&E does occasionally great if predictable work. Charlie is bloody slow. Modders will have the space and Dances with scones ought make himself pivotal. Flick that round thing past, over and generally beyond their midfield, Their defense is eminently unlockable, unmemorable.

Prediction? Let’s just do what we do best. Fly by the seat of our undergarments and …do ’em.

    Apart from Billy no-one really mentions Thudds purest of strikes. The guy really does have two golden feet. A few stray passes aside he and BAE were my MOM,s

    What a game of football. I watched it in gran canaria and the real barca game was on the other screen; ten mins into kick-off we had spaniards watching our game with plenty of heads shaking at the pace and ferocity of it

      Triffic :daumen: I think we play fantastic footy. The Arse/Barca games at their best just look like compooter games. We rock.

    If you’d asked at the start of the season if I’d be happy to take 4 points out of 6 from the Goons, I’d have said yes, so I’m happy with the result tho’ like eveyone else would loved to have made it 6 from 6. Great strike from Thudd, we’ve missed that threat from the edge of the box at set pieces, more please Tom!

    Agree with the above on VdV, he’s so wired for this fixture; its such a shame we can’t hate everyone with equal venom. I’ve heard a lot of criticism of late on him some deserved some less so, but to my mind his aggression, sheer anger at losing and will to win are an important aspect of the team this year, when he’s down in the dumps everyone is, when he’s firing everyone follows.

    Good effort form the lads even Gomes, no chance on first, maybe a deflection on the second and not his screw up for the third.

    We’re well in the race!

    • MysteriousStranger says:

      No maybe about the deflection. There was a deflection.

    • Harry Hotspur says:

      Whilst you didn’t hear it here, Andy Gray made a decent comment :cwy: pointing out that we’ve cost those bar stewards 5 points this season.

      That is a bloody decent achievement against a consistently top four side.
