Destined To Spend Weekends At Asda

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.

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.

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.
