Thish Weeksh Twenty Questionsh

Thish Weeksh Twenty Questionsh

1. Mikael Silvestre. Insanity or genius?

2. Following another abysmal England performance under yet another England coach, will the press and the public please, please, please shut their whingeing fucking traps and accept that maybe, just maybe, it`s not the manager that`s the problem, but maybe, just maybe, the players are shit?

3. Should Andrei Arshavin by rights be standing on a street corner sporting leather chaps, knee high boots, stilettos and a cheap fag inviting, "hey sailor, wanna have some fun?"

4. Paul Robinson`s Blackburn record thus far. One match, one hilarious error. Is it me or is he improving?

5. Am I the only one who thinks that, following his comments on Thursday, Arsene Wenger is most definitely not interested in Gareth Barry whatsoever?

6. Cheeky bid for Diarra anyone? Anyone? No? Just me then?

7. Does anyone else see the irony of Alex Song`s return to Craven Cottage after a thousand or so Arsenal fans brilliantly decided to boo him mercilessly at the same venue less than two years ago?

8. Surely Shteve McLaren wash, how you shay, joking ya?

9. Did my eyes deceive me or, whisper it quietly; did Chelsea actually play some attractive football last weekend?

10. Will Robin van Persie`s nose be put out of joint (not literally you understand, he`d be out for the season otherwise) now that Silvestre has walked straight into the treatment room? I hope someone warns Mikael not to misshape van Persie`s arse groove on his favourite treatment table.

11. Is that why Nasri is suddenly fit for the weekend? Has RvP had a word and scared him away from the bonbons and chocolate éclairs that they keep in there?

12. Last month Arsene Wenger issued a missive against clubs talking about potential transfer targets by name in an attempt to unsettle them. Would he care to explain the following comment, "Barry is a player we look at."?

13. Gallas. Diarra. Silvestre. Is Arsene trying to build a team of exclusively egg headed Frenchmen?

14. Re: David Bentley`s hairstyle. So he`s not trying to convince everyone he`s a massive twat just by what comes out of his mouth then?

15. Am I the only one who thought Kolo Toure looked like he`d been on the Guinness and Steak and Kidney`s all summer?

16. Following his 'resignation/ sacking/ redundancy/ kicked out of the door via a massive Doctor Marten boot in his arse` Brian Barwick proudly trumped that Wembley Stadium was his legacy to the F.A. Strange because he took the job in January 2005, four years after the redevelopment was actually underway and seven years after the blueprints had already been drawn up. Though since January 2005, the cost of the project did almost double and become delayed twice. Worst….legacy…..ever?

17. Given that Wenger has made the "sign a French player from a close rival in late August" an annual event, who will it be next year? Cheeky bid for Diarra anyone?

18. Is Valerei Bojinov the unluckiest man in football at the moment?

19. Does anyone else not feel at all sorry for Citeh fans given their shameless endorsement of Thaksin Shiniwatra?

20. Will the Totts ever bloody learn?

In closing I would like to wish a speedy recovery to Liam Brady.LD.

I wasn't impressed by Chelski's football. I didn't watch the whole game, but all I saw Chelski do was play the ball sideways and backwards. The only time the ball was played forward, it seemed to be about six Peter Crouch's in the air! Perhaps we're just spoiled, and Chelski don't actually play bad football... Just that it's still *****-poor compared to ours?

Haha you try to read the title of this article, it's pretty tough lol.. And LD, the spelling should be "queshtionsh" eh?! Re that game, I also only watched the first half, I thought it got something to do with Pompey's weird formation too, e.g. Diop?! Their defence also looked a bit slow unfortunately. But I have a feeling that Pompey will do well against ManU this weekend.

1.something in-between; let’s say it’s Wengerish / 2. It is existentially impossible for English players to be s-h-i-t; it’s always the manager's fault: a Swede with a great club record and managed repeated QFs with England at big tournaments; an Englishman who worked under Ferguson-the-Scottish-Genius and now an extremely successful Italian manager – they’re all miserable excuses for managers and don’t know what the hell they’re doing. But the players are all world class. / 3. wait, you just described a weird looking woman I saw in Rio last month… /’s you / 5. he’s ALWAYS interested, didn’t you listen?! / 6. I’ll join you there. / 7. Aha! The football gods have an evil sense of humor / 8. sadly, no / 9. Ah, Felipao's a miracle worker, ain't he? / 10. nah, Robin will just welcome him in and tell him not to mind the overcrowding / 11. no, Arsene threatened RayRay with an Offer He Couldn't Refuse / 12. That's just so totally different, LD! You got it all wrong! All Arsene ment was that Barry's a player he looks at for his fine fashion and hair sense. It's the media that twisted his comments! / 13. just a key part of his thoroughly diabolical, brilliant plan to make Arsenal kings of Europe! / 14. It's his strange and fruitless way of making himself into a babe magnet / 15. no, and he also had an accident with his hair stylist / 16. That's just revisionist history, LD / 17. No, he'll shock everyone by convincing zizou to come out of retirment -- why do you think they were sitting together at one of the Italy games at the Euros? / 18. It's either him or Somneil from Valenciennes / 19. tough one, part of me feels sorry for them, the other part feels like telling them “this is what you get when you embrace a guy on Amnesty Int’l’s *****list!” / 20. Have they ever?

Lou, you have a point about Pompey in their game v. Chelsea. I've been flummoxed by Pompey lately -- I've always liked Redknapp's football with them but lately they look like just a bunch of basketball players who never create anything.

Q14 he earns more in a week then you probally earn in a year. he has beautiful women falling over each other to get near him. drives a fast car. plays football in front of huge crowds every week.(every blokes dream) WHAT A F%*K*%G *****!!!!!
23/08/2008 00:35:00
And that makes him a lovely bloke dspurs? So earning loadsa money and having a nice car makes you better than everyone else? I feel sorry for you and your value system. Though I can't disagree with your last sentence, he is a ******** *****.
