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

Who's Got The Bacon And Sausage To Go With My Egg?

After consuming copious amounts of alcohol to dull the pain last night, I have what's technically known as a 'f***ing stonking hangover'.

As most people know, the best way to cure a hangover is a lovely fry up .... well I already got the egg (it's on my face), so who's got the sausage, bacon, tomatoes and toast?

I am quite well known on the Vital network as not only being the handsomest editor of them all, but also for being a bit cocky and arrogant when it comes to my football team.

However, I usually save those ugly traits for when the final whistle has blown, but the events of the early season had given me a false sense of security, and for the first time in my life I felt very confident going into a NLD. So much so that I'd spent the last couple of days poking some fun at our neighbours. Well don't I feel like a bit of a tit.

I've often questioned the attitude of some of the visiting Spurs fans to this site who season after season come long bleating about how they're going to overtake us only to have it blow up in their faces. Well I got a taste of the aftermath last night, and it's bitter (how can they keep coming back and feeling like this?).

So from here on in my cake hole will be well and truly shut till the match is over.

Lesson learned.

Never mind Rockster, twas a great game...
It was indeed, but one of these days I'd like one of these types of "great games" to end positively for US!! lol
Let's not be too contrite! It was all good banter - not in the 'we are going to take your CL place' class - but fair enough. It's what gives the contest some edge. Treat yourself to a fried slice and some mushrooms along with the rest of it. There is always another game.
Mmmmm - Mushrooms.
As happy as i am that we nicked a point i was more happier with the way you guys highlighted to Harry how much work he has got ahead of him.Lets not kid ourselves about what went on last night,we were streets behind you in every department of the game apart from maybe one,(playing to the final whistle).I wouldnt be too down as when you look at the table i know where i would rather be,but of course,your expectations are alot higher than ours and rightfully so.Bet that bacon and eggs is tasting better already Rocky.COYS.
With my head still spinning from the lack of sleep and rather complicated emotions (had finished reading a rather heavy and sad book last night, then went through the ups and DOWNS of the NLD alone in the middle of the night, imagine that), I went for a dim sum treatment with some good old friends with a great chat today, followed by some lovely shopping, followed by the best Japanese ice-cream I've ever had. Now back home, I'm feeling sh;t again. Rocky and Amos, can you give me the recipe, mushrooms or whatever it takes to cure this cr@p in my head?
Nice post cockaduddle. Harry has got a lot of work to do, but last night will have done Spurs the world of good. Confidence is everything. Irrespective of the results this weekend I bet you see a marked improvment on the team's body language against Liverpool. On the other hand each and every Arsenal player better have a look of complete focus on their faces for the game against Stoke, they better play to the whistle, each and every whistle, and have some passion to go along with their unbridled skill. Because skill alone just isn't enough.
Rocky that's the most valid and gutting point about our squad. We've got such enviable talent in abundance, but time and again we've shown we lack the maturity to turn talent into results. There's an Arsene Wenger quote that's famously printed and stuck on the wall of the Arsenal Youth Academy which he can throw right back at his first-teamers: "Talent is not enough. You need desire and intelligence." I just don't know how you teach these 3 things.
I dont think anyone can deny the gulf in class between the teams at the moment,the table doesnt lie as they say but you guys just cant afford to keep doing what you did last night.Normal service should be resumed at Stoke on saturday.
I hope so, but something tells me Delap is going to cause us all kinds of problems. You know that thing footballers to to prevent a corner where they just welly it out for a throw in? I think we should actually kick it out for a corner instead ... lol
rocky, don't be too down, we outplayed them all night, the only remaining fact is, Harry has this don't give up attitude, he speaks english and he is vocal. but they are awful, harry yes has a lot of work to do, but with hard games coming, some may say mission impossible, for example, other teams won games last night around them, now they play liverpool, if they lose that and other teams around them win again, it gets far worse. I don't actually think, they have done the math properly. i would say, arsenal fans getting on bentley's back only fuelled his desire last night, but the keeper, hutton and a few others seemed to get worse. and cocaduddle is right, our expectations are alot higher than theirs, 4th spot for us is a bad season, for them its all that matters !
Spurs will be fine, mark my words. It doesn't take too many wins to get you out of the drop zone and Spurs are better equipped than all the teams in and around. It won't amount to a good season or to them getting any closer to us, but the dream we all had a few weeks ago of seeing them relegated is gone. They won't get relegated, I'm just not that lucky ... lol
PG I wouldn't even look at Spurs now. Just like RvP said before the game: I don't care about them. Whether 'Arry keeps them up, it's their problems not ours. Ours is this mentality issue that's seemingly difficult to correct. I wonder if Arsene has instilled too much confidence in these guys' heads or if they're simply too full of themselves cos they know precisely how talented they are, despite the fact that they've won eff all for this club as key players in the team (except Kolo).
Sorry for your pain Rocky, I hope you feel better soon.. I am also sorry to say that you are no longer the best looking vital editor...
I reckon if you guys had someone like Steven Gerrard you would be just about there.He would be such an ideal fit around Cesc and co. and would give you that added steel and grit which is maybe what your lacking.Just a thought anyway.
Nice talking to you guys and gals.Getting late over here in Oz,time for bed,think ill dream about A Lennon tonight,purely sexual of course.LOL.
Cockaduddle, i would'nt mind him at Spurs either, dream dream dream. I see your point though, it realy does'nt bear thinking about does it Fabregas, Gerrard, Walcott, Nasri. Pretty scary if you ask me...
Nevermind best looking editor Ox, I'd be leading contender for best "face like a smacked arse" award ... lol.
this game was hard to take, i still can't sleep and it is 5:30am here AZ USA, crazy this team is killing
Puregold - Never mind how we're going to fare against L'pool, I'll be interested to see how your defence copes with Rory Delap throw-ins at the weekend!
What was the theme tune to Frasier? #I simply don't know what to do with those tossed salad and scrambled eggs. They're calling again.# That could be our theme tune today.
Little Dutch
parklane, that is a bloody good question, are team doesn't close down ! as was shown last night with your shots outside the area !
I hope your hangover has faded by now Rocky! At least you had drink, the pub I was in only had Fosters left by half-time due to the fact their delivery failed to turn up, and I don't like Fosters! So I had to cope with what happened last night without the aid of Drink!!!!
