Know what you mean Roc. I was busting for a *****e after about 25. Wish I'd gone, I'm gonna be needing a *****bag for life now 8-)

It would be more fun to sit and watch a fat man try and put his shoes on!
03/02/2007 18:34:00
Senderos is having a very very poor season, and Fabregas is tired. Flamini should never be deployed right. Mike Riley is a ****
03/02/2007 19:31:00
Ahh! Our old mate Mike O' Reily eh? Oh well, another result with 10 men when we weren't at our best. Building blocks for next seasons assault I think! Senderos is the same in every match, excellent for most of it, but it's the one lapse of concentration that seems to cost us. If he can iron those mistakes out of his game he'd be great!
03/02/2007 19:34:00
For all the Wonderful things Wenger does right hisone major flaw is that he continues to play his favourites. Flamini should be nowhere near the first team other than in the carling cup. His performance today was abysmal, he didn't help Hoyte, he done nothing worthwhile in attack & he continually gave the ball back to boro. Having said all that Boro can thank Riley for getting them a draw by awarding a penalty for a challenge that was made a minimum of 5 feet outside the area. I thought Yakubo (or whatever his name is) was supposed to be strong yet he went to floor like a big girl everytime anyone went near him & as for Mark 'Deliberate Forearm' Viduka which was seen by Riley & only given a yellow card, what a fat **** he is. I just knew Riley would cost us this game he really is one of the worst refs in this league!!

I seem to agree with u AG, Flamini has been very useful in the 4-5-1 this season but today he was very poor. The only alternative was denilson, since walcott is very low on confidence. The penalty was rather soft but the red card... typical Mike Riley.
03/02/2007 19:45:00
Ashburton Gooner, Flamini just good to be in the carling cup? do you know what you're talking? dun blame the poor guy for the entire team's lacklustre performance. whatever job he is given, whether at leftback, rightback, or right midfield, he gives everything and does a very good job at it. there were others in the team today who were way worse than him. the guy reminds me so much of ray parlour, love him for his commitment to the team and who always gives 110% in every game. you're only looking at what he did wrong and not at the mistakes of others, the guy is gonna be the unsung hero of our club, and only after a few years will he get the due credit that he deserves..

and boro really defended well today, they hardly gave us space, and liverpool's draw makes this result even more disappointing, as this was a great chance to grab the third spot from them, but the lads will still keep going and i conceede the title now, but the 2nd spot is still up for grabs now..
03/02/2007 20:00:00
and we're clearly missing hleb and van persie and also ljungberg to an extent. freddie can still provide us the width we lacked today and make those runs in the box and keep scoring if he gets the right service. someone needs to take over the mantle from bergkamp to provide him the killer passes for his trademark runs. and in our last year's champions league run we had a patched up defence, but i think our every player in attack was available for the knock out stages, and if we are to seriously challenge and win it this year, we need to get everyone fit soon, f*** when are all our injuries going to clear up..
