Some Credible Thoughts On Another Fine Mess

So Manchester United grind out three points. We’re incapable of grinding coffee beans.

West Brom? Sorry to be awfully disrespectful, but this is the side that thought they’d won the lottery when landing Uncle Woy as their supremo.

Believe it or not I stand by Redschnapps. Those amongst you who revel in stats can investigate but he’s worked miracles. He has his limitations but who amongst us doesn’t? As I recall Stephen Fry’s ‘flawed genius’ speech on Cooky.My beef is with the players.

I don’t see much merit in ripping into anyone specifically. But the Tottenham Malaise is still there, still blighting any chances of genuinely advancing as a team, as a club. Gomes is apparently a clown and some wouldn’t send him for a paper.

Gomes is a decent goalkeeper. But I tell you this; you put Van der Sar in a Spurs shirt and watch him haemorrhage goals. There isn’t a keeper in the world that performs well in front of a conveyor belt of defenders. There isn’t a keeper in the world who’s confidence and self belief are impervious to foul ups. It’s a vicious circle and the sooner King & Woodgate are suitably replaced the better.

Our midfield has some absolute quality in it’s number. But Modders is a gem, Rafa a gift, but Bale needs to adapt his game. He’s become a household name and ought not be surprised that people are developing a strategy to nullify him.

Sandro must be encouraged to stamp his mark on proceedings. We’ve been whining on for a dog’s age about a ‘Roy Keane’ type. Pssst wanna know a secret? We’ve got one and his name is Sandro.

Up front I’m swimming against the tide with many of you perhaps. I wouldn’t flog Defoe and 3MP, I’d pop them into one of those charity bags that come through the door and leave them on the curb outside The Lane. Harsh? Neither have scored remotely enough goals. Forget Pete’s one that got us in the Champions League, he took that back when he demanded a red card against Real.

Drawing indoors to West Brom simply isn’t on. If Chelsea don’t wallop West Ham there will be tears before bedtime in the Hotspur caravanette tonight.

Here’s some clips:

    credible huh? ^^

  • Jim Barnett says:

    Ummm first? I’n HR’s defence there’s not much you can do when 10 men are behind the ball. Plus benny going off didn’t really help our gameplan out much

  • AS says:

    The league is about 38 games and we have left ourselves a huge amount to do by dropping points primarily because we could not score enough. Trevor Francis said in commentary we have scored the same number of goals as the Baggies! Yet we are still 5th. Imagine where we would be if we could score – I think on the tails of united not city.
    All things considered the team have actually done very well for a side playing witn passengers up front. We messed up last summer by choosing to stick rather than twist. Now we probably miss out on 4th and CL and 30m because of it.

  • Bruce Castle says:

    Defoe scored with his left foot. Cor blimey, I had to rub my eyes.

  • HoustonYid says:

    Too many bloody central midfielders. Modders and Thud OK, but VDV can’t resist getting in there too. Add Sandro to the mix and suddenly it’s horribly congested. HR’s fault for not sorting that out ’til too late. Defoe wouldn’t pass to Pav if his life depended on it – not a team player.
