'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Destined To Spend Weekends At Asda

After the events of this afternoon I am destined to spend the rest of my life in Asda on a Saturday.

With no means to watch the game, I sat with my son on my knee and watched Gilette Soccer Saturday.

By halftime we were 2-0 down and down to ten men, I was through listening to Matt Le Tissier's screams in the background hoping that we'd pulled a goal back.

So after a brief chat with my wife (brief? yeah right) I set off to Asda for supplies for the Sunday roast, and a couple of bottle of Shandy for Saturday night in front of the box.

After the obligatory text message from the Mrs with an additional 8 hundred items to pick up, I found my self reaching for some milk when I heard an Asda employee talking to his colleague.

'Yeah I can't believe it' He proclaimed '2-0 at halftime and Diaby has been sent off, and we've come back to draw 2-2'

The milk I was grasping in my mitt landed on the floor sending the white stuff cascading everywhere.

The mobile came immediately out of my pocket and hopped on the blower to the ball and chain.

'Is it really 2-2?'

'**Sigh** Just let me check......... yeah it's 2-2!!'

'Awesome'

'Wait ...... wait ....... 3-2!!!'

'To us?'

'Yeah!!!'

Cue the dancing and strange looks from fellow shoppers.

So being the superstitious soul that I am, I may now have to spend every matchday from now until the end of the season in the chilled section of my local supermarket.

What a feckin killer game this was!! Never in a million years would I have thought we could win this.
WouldYouBelieveIt?!
I've actually got some on my trainers and halfway up my jeans!!!

Bet it was worth it though?

It was pretty funny .... the dude who had to clear it up was a Gooner, but he cheered up after I told him about Cesc's strike!!!

I hate to be a spoil sport here but this only papers over the cracks. Hlep vas terrible for most of the game, Toure was not much better and as for Diaby well he is not a left winger and never will be so why the f@#k does Wenger insist on playing him there. His tackle was as bad as Taylors and he deserved the red card. Senderos IMO played well enough and should never have been dropped for Toure, as for Gallas he keeps the team going so you doupters should leave him alone. I do think the sups were a good tactical decision by Wenger and they changed the game for us but it does not as I said at the start paper over the problem wich is we need mor players in the summer that have the experience to play in the most diffeculd league in the world. Kids are ok when the pressure is not to much but at the end of season scrap you cant beat experience.

Also I think fabregas was s*** today the worst I have seen him play in a very very long time however the good thing is we got the three points and one more thing the ADULTS deffinetly know how to stop our hearts when they play!!

Hehe Rocky it's well worth it! The old lady next door gave me some fish snacks to last the game. Now I want a little more of those for the remaining games. :)

I sort of feel sorry for Bolton! Not very often they've scored 2 since January and to go and lose it against ten men... Good fightback though.
The_Legend_Of_Zola
Rocky, it's a shame you didn't find that out a month ago! :)
Cheese.
Rocky, if Liverpool go 1-0 up on Weds, I'll know that you ain't where you're supposed to be. I'm glad this has all come to a head now though, cos it means 3 hours less motorcycling up and down the M4 in a gorilla suit for me, every matchday. Superstition, schnooperstition, lol!

LoL Rocky don't worry mate....the bad run of form was down to me wearing the wrong top on the last few match days - one is a (very good) Thai fake of last years away strip, and the other the Invincibles home strip, both given by Ex's so bound to bring bad juju on match day (sorry everyone!) I did however don my Dreamcast double top today (which I bought before David Seaman's testimonial) and as always when I wear it, we won..... So you're safe from having to spend match days in Asda, but spare a thought for the poor sods who have to sit near me when I'm watching the next games.......that top is going to be worn every match now & it aint getting washed again until the end of the season, possibly never if we win the league.....
KaoTeK
KT, if we win the league remind me not to stand too close! I've tried all different combinations myself- Dreamcast home shirt with new-crest scarf seems to work best, although the Highbury/old-crest scarf seems to work better in Europe. Today I put on my Arsenal old-crest baseball cap at the half and that seemed to work. . . Still, I get the feeling my apparel, and Rocky's whereabouts, have less to do with the result than those guys running around on the pitch. And I'm sure Rocky won't want to miss too many more halves in the milk section of a grocery store.

I just wanna say well done and zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz sorry must have nodded off.

I got treated to corporate hospitality at Manu on Saturday, and had to watch sky sport news in the box with a bunch of Arsenal hating Mancs. I was getting a bit glum but trying not to let them wind me up, but what a turnaround, i got to have the last laugh, and what a hearty laugh it was! I hope i dont have to go to OT every Saturday now just to keep us winning! Asda sounds much better!
