Twenty More Questions

Twenty More Questions

1. Sir Alex Ferguson asked for more protection for Cristiano Ronaldo this week, fearing that a serious injury may be impending. So what are his opinions of a kicking a player called Jose Reyes took at Old Trafford a few years back?

2. If Pompey go on to win the F.A. Cup, Jermain Defoe will suffer the ignominy of playing for both domestic Cup winners without landing a winners medal. Has this happened before?

3. Does Dave Kitson feel slightly silly now?

4. Is Flamini Fabregas a better partnership than Vieira Petit?

5. Has a player`s decline ever been so steep and as noticeable as that of Gilberto Silva?

6. Can Pascal Chimbonda please take all of Tottenham`s penalties from now on?

7. Did Paul Robinson have a bet on PSV to win on penalties? The solitary penalty save he did manage occurred because he dived the wrong way too slowly!

8. Was the awful penalty decision given against 'Boro this week a consequence of Steve Gibson`s entirely correct F.A. rant? Or am I just paranoid?

9. Blackburn were charged for failing to control their players this week after Morten Gamst Pedersen was man handled and set upon by the Newcastle coaching staff. Is this the worst ever case of a club`s reputation proceeding them? Is the F.A. capable of getting bloody anything right?

10. With all English sides progressing through to the last eight of the Champions` League, there has been much self congratulation surrounding the Premiership with punters and pundits alike queuing up to laud it as the greatest league on earth. Yet all remaining Premiership sides tumbled out of the UEFA Cup. Does this not just prove that, beyond the big three and Liverpool, the Premiership isn`t as good as everyone thinks it is?

11. What are the odds on a 4-0 victory for Blackburn at Upton Park tomorrow?

12. Did it never occur to Michael Owen that Newcastle being shit isn`t the reason his England place is in danger, but perhaps it`s because he is shit?

13. Is the situation at Gretna a stark warning to Chelsea?

14. How much is a flight to Liverpool?

15. Why am I not surprised that the Champions` League draw worked out to make an all English final as unlikely as possible?

16. Will Jeremie Aliadiere make us sorry?

17. Despite my earlier indignation, I would like to reiterate to the F.A. that if you want to really punish Steve Gibson, you should probably instruct tomorrow`s referee to give Arsenal a penalty or two. Any chance?

18. Is it just me that thinks John Terry looks like a stereotypical lesbian?

19. Anyone else becoming really quite genuinely suspicious about Chelsea`s draws in cup competitions?

20. Will Fenerbahce ask Barnsley for tips? (Cheers Lou).LD.

Funny how you say 'big three and Liverpool' when in the past two seasons, Liverpool have finished in the top three, ahead of Arsenal. That might not be the case this season but in the past when Arsenal finished fourth, I bet you still referred to it as the 'big 4'.

I think it was a friendly jibe, Aamir. Most Gooners like or at least respect Liverpool (certainly more than Man Ure or Chelski at any rate). I am more than suspicipus of Chelsea's cup draws, IT IS A FERKIN' FIX AND NO FERKIN' MISTAKE!!!

1. Or look at the reverse Eduardo situation where Rooney challenged Krancjar. A side question would be: had it happened the other way around, i.e. Krancjar challenged Rooney with that scary tackle which Rooney narrowly escaped, what would Sir Red Nose have said? 6. (b) Why didn't Malbranque take any penalty? 10. Yeah I find that quite amusing too. So the English league is the strongest when the top 4 get into CL QF's. Money factor and high tempo the press have talked about. But how come they seem to forget that this season we don't have Bayern Munich (who'll win the UEFA Cup now it seems) and Juventus in the tournament, and the likes of Werder Bremen (who can't beat Rangers because of cr@p defence), Valencia and Real screwed up, while Sevilla were unlucky? Fail to see all these just mean it's a cup competition, added to the 'strength' of the PL, which contributed to this 4-in-8 scenario? 16. Some sites say Aliadiere's back from suspension. I lost count of how many games he's been away. 19. Yes I am. 20. Welcome. And the Barnsley story's useful to us too, ahem.

"Most Gooners like or at least respect Liverpool (certainly more than Man Ure or Chelski at any rate)." It's the same with us regarding Arsenal Moorish.
