Morning. *boilk*. Morning. *boilk*. Morning. *boilk*. Morning. *boilk*.
Don’t worry, that’s just last night’s beer repeating on me. My God, town was full of people in full carnival mode. Luckily for me I avoided all that kind of drumming and trumpeting and leaping and dancing and sat at a bar. All over and done with now though so let’s talk about football.
Robin van Persie talks sense about what’s ahead of us in the final games of the season. He says:
We have to win at least one trophy this season. At least. If we don’t, then we would have played fantastic football for nothing.
True words indeed. If we don’t take this league we’ll look back and think that we had a really great chance to win it. I know nobody expected us to be competing at this stage but the fact is we are. There really is no more room for error and while things are gloomy at the moment we’ve seen before how quickly they can change this season. If we win against Chelsea and Liverpool beat United then it’ll be all square at the top.
We have to be ready for pressure though. United play their game in hand against Bolton tomorrow night and if they beat Liverpool they’d sit 6 points clear of us before we played Chelsea. Still, we’ve been good in the games against ‘big’ teams this season, we need to keep that up. Robin is confident though, saying:
I’m not a daydreamer, I really think we can win it, and the Champions League, this season. Why not? We have the qualities. We have to stick together and believe in it, belief can take you very far.
If someone can translate belief into goals then we’re all set. Fingers crossed he can get himself back match fit and sharp as soon as possible. Meanwhile Kolo Toure says ‘we can beat anybody’, which is true in one way but in another way it’s completely false as at the moment we can’t beat anybody. We’re draw specialists.
Birmingham Chairman David Gold has hit back at Cesc’s comments about Martin Taylor. Only to be expected, I suppose. Protecting his own and all that. While I think there was absolutely no need for Sepp Blatter to stick his oar in I think you have to expect Arsenal people to do what Gold did, protect their own. So Gold can fuck off, the cunt.
Tomas Rosicknote talks about his injury problems, saying:
It is pretty irksome. I still cannot start full training. There is nothing I can do but wait and hope that the injury goes away.
Irksome. Yes. It must be irksome. I know I am irked. Are you irked? If we’re all irked then Tomas too must be irked. Did you ever notice that if you say a word like irk repeatedly it stops making any sense in your head? Irk. Irk. Irk. Irk. Irk. Irk. Anyway, if we can get Anderton back before the end of the season it’ll be a bonus, I suppose.
Not much else happening. I’d better go get some coffee and painkillers, that’s the way to start your day.
