Twenty is Plenty

Twenty is Plenty

1. Why are Arsenal fans complaining so much about the denied penalty on Wednesday night? We all know Bendtner would have saved it anyway!

2. Are Chelsea fans even slightly embarrassed by the club`s announcement that they are effectively bribing supporters to attend the upcoming fixture against Everton, including paying their travel costs? I guess the rows of empty seats and the sleeping supporters at the game against Boro last week means Grant`s experiment with "sexy football" has now turned into all out prostitution.

3. Are Liverpool bothered about tomorrow?

4. What would a Ronaldo injury do to the rest of United`s season?

5. Is Anfield really that special on a European night?

6. If we do end up potless this season, will the fact that we probably relegated Bolton still make it a successful season? Surely there has to be some kind of trophy for that? Maybe a Noble Peace Prize?

7. Is Abou Diaby really that stupid?

8. Are the board of Derby County actually happy with the relegation? They`ve gone up, reaped the financial rewards. Reimbursed very little of it in the squad, made very little attempt at staying up and therefore don`t really lose much by going down. When one considers how much Sunderland have spent to just about keep their heads just above the parapet, can you really blame them for taking a calculated approach?

9.'Boro are usually good for a result against the top teams, can they turn the title race on its head this weekend?

10. What the **** are the BBC thinking putting the Pompey v West Brom semi final on at the same time as Arsenal v Liverpool? Why is this channel allowed to show such contempt for the miniscule amount of live football it gets?

11. Anyone else really get the feeling that Flamini is a goner?

12. "If you stop Steven Gerrard you can stop Liverpool." These were Kolo Toure`s words in the build up to Wednesday`s game. So why didn`t he take his own advice and tackle the bastard then?

13.In a feature on Portsmouth`s F.A. Cup run, Sky Sports News proclaimed that, "when it comes to success in the F.A. Cup, Tony Adams has more than drunk his fill." Most unfortunate choice of words ever?

14. What was the point in the F.A. charging Ferguson and his mini me Quieroz for their Hackett outburst? They`ve both effectively chosen the referees for the next three weeks anyway, why bother with this pathetically transparent attempt at looking authoritative all of a sudden?

15. El Hadji Diouf has confirmed this week that he will leave Bolton at the end of the season. Given that he`s possibly the most despised footballer in the country, together with the fact that he looks a little bit like a Bond villain, does anybody think that Chelsea is the best possible club for him? (Long ball football in an empty stadium, can`t think it would take long for him to adjust).

16. Why no gushing prose from the media this week of how Gallas inspired our comeback at Bolton last week? Who does Steven Gerrard have to blow to get the kind of publicity he gets?

17. Mateja Kezman has been quoted as saying that Chelsea would not have lost to Fenerbahce had Mourinho still been manager. Shouldn`t the guy keep his gob shut until the second leg?

18.The F.A. have pledged to investigate allegations that an unnamed player in one of Britain`s professional leagues accepted a £50,000 bribe to deliberately get himself sent off. So that`ll be a "let`s just sit around and do nothing for eighteen months and then just tell everybody it was inconclusive then yeah" stance from the F.A?

19. Just what did happen to the F.A`s bung enquiry?

20. Is Theo Walcott ready to make an impact for ninety minutes?LD.

Theo Probably should start now due to Arsenal fans trying to drive Eboue out of the team and probably club.

yeah hows about give toure a rest and play bendtner at right back...i knowtwasnt his fault and soon we will be able to laugh heartily at the blooper reel it will surely turn up on. An injury to ronaldo? would be intersting to see how (wo)manu cope or even better, him ******** off to real madrid would surely shatter united. but i love hating him so let him stay in engerland, if he were injured for a short time e.g. till may...it may to prove a point. We should get an "outstanding contribution to football" award for relegating bolton

He has earned it no doubt. But if you are a player, how are you meant to play well when your own fans get on your back and boo. I know he is a t*at and does some stupid things. I just dont think we are helping out by laying in to him. IMO

Theo is ready to make an impact, but as a striker this weekend. Which leaves us with Eboue the only choice at RM - he's been ok this season, not good, but he has linked up well with Sagna to create some chances for the team. I've not given up hope on Flamini yet, although the longer it takes, the less likely it looks that he will sign. He has every right to move for more money, but it would be disappointing to handle as a gooner.

Yeah, I bet Bowyer would have a real hard time acting that part out. "Oh no, I've got to try and get myself sent off, how will I ever manage it?" Thing is, how do you prove that accusation? I could show you twenty games and say, "see, Barton's deliberatley trying to get himself sent off there." Although, hang on, what was question 7 again.....................
