Guten Abend und herzlich willkommen auf das weekend, my dearest friends.
QPR caused a welcome stir then by beatin’ the Woolwich Wotters. Sparky Marky Hughes will be relieved that his ‘group of death’ style closing run to their season has had a rather…well, relieving start. ‘The boy Tarapit done more brilliant than we’d hoped’ the ghost of Neil Warnock was heard to say.
Elsewhere, die hard Citeh fans were seen streaming out of the Etihad from the before the 70th minute as Mancini’s boy’s dropped a testicle. Unbelievable scenes. At least in the Paxton the booing may start at any time after the 15th minute, but at least our lot are ordinarily prepared to hang about and moan. I can respect determination in any field.
fig.1=Gallas feeding Bale and Adebayor when dropping deep. fig.2=Suggested run for Bale, NB must not stop to talk to anyone, just cross in to… fig.5=Rafa fires home that pass from Bale. fig.3=PNB to concentrate on supplying Azza & Rafa. fig.4=Piece of solo brilliance from the Chapeltown Terrier.
We need to beat Swansea by 4 clear golazos in order to go third. It will take some collapse to facilitate that.
I ordinarily swerve First Goalscorer prices but 4/1 for Manu is very tempting …even for me. Anytime goalscorer prices have always been my bag and Azza Blud at 3/1 does it for me, but Pathe News Boy to nick one at 11/2 is a pound I’m happy to punt. Prices from Boylesports who don’t actually pay me a dime, but I like their site.
