19.45 – Arsenal 1-1 Liverpool (Henry pen)
I’ve just seen a disgusted looking Houllier on Sky saying Francis Jeffers took a dive to win Arsenal’s penalty. Bwa ha ha ha ha ha ha ha. He did dive as well. And we scored. Mwa ha ha ha ha ha ha. Well done Frannie. Anyway, if Liverpool had come away from that game with 3 points, it would have been the biggest injustice since OJ Simpson got away with killing his missus and her boyfriend. Whatever you thought of Liverpool in the past, they always played nice football. This team is dour, defensive and horrible to watch.
Notice how Houllier stood outraged on the sidelines when Vieira gave El Hadji Diouf a little kick, yet somehow failed to see anything wrong with this? Then he said Liverpool deserved to win on the basis of their 2nd half performance. The bloke is mental, and not in a charming, skittish kind of way. It’s an annoying kind of mentalness he suffers from – the kind that makes you want to spray him with some kind of skin eating virus and watch as his face melts off.
Arsenal should have won it right at the death when Gilberto shot wide and Danny Murphy is a cunt. Not that the two are related, but I don’t see what that has to do with anything. Still the scousers languish 9 points behind us, and 3 points from Chelsea on New Year’s day would round of the crimbo period very nicely.
AW says we’ll be in the market for a keeper as soon as the transfer window opens. Good stuff. The injured Stuart Taylor was on the bench today, so it’s a good thing nothing happened to old Spunky. A word about Steven Sidwell. The Arsenal youngster is spending his second season on loan withg Steve Coppell. Last season he made headlines at Brentford, this year it’s Brighton, and he scored 2 goals in the last 2 minutes to rescue a point for the Seagulls yesterday. Well done sir.
Dennis to get his 100th Arsenal goal against Chelsea. And his 101st. And 102nd.
