Looks like they have been studying Southampton defensive strategies and tactics. FBs going missing, CBs ignoring opposition players in the penalty area, even if there are only one or two. We are through to the knockout stages, but I don’t think we’ll last long against a side that can hit the target.
I usually only make a list when I am working on a project, planning the order of things, what to buy and when. I have a friend of 44 years standing who has a list of people that has irritated or crossed them over the years. In the event of becoming Supreme Being, they would not exist. This, of course is a bit like the song in “The Mikado” which is always hilarious to listen to with current events included. This link, whilst a few years old still has a couple of useful political references.
After the Brentford game, I returned home despondent, but after a day or two, and the subsequent Spurs game felt life was getting better. But then, on Monday night, I was hit with fever, nightmares and extreme muscle pain all over. The Ague I think they used to call it. Yep, after 3 years, I had finally succumbed to Covid19.
On another forum, not footy related, I very nearly referred to it as C. But then I remembered that the Big C was something altogether a lot nastier. Maybe covid should be little c. That got me thinking about Conservative and conservative.
Then I remembered, the C-word is a completely different word altogether, now that it has sprung into media usage. As it happened, Boris was up before the Parliamentary Privelidges Committee on Wednesday. Being laid low with c, I took the opportunity to watch the event in which the C was centre stage. And C he surely is, as well as Conservative. The intervening vote on the Windsor Plan has hopefully put paid to the ERG, (a complete bunch of Cs), for good.
And what of the Conservative Matt Hancock and the revelations he blithely gave away. Do I consider him a C? Is he big and influential enough to be a C? Or even a lesser c? Whilst I know the two words refer to the same thing, I think Tw@t is all he deserves for posterity.
All this put me in mind of a startling revelation about Cs made by a friend when we were forced to study Shakespear’s Twelfth Night when we were 15 years old.
“By my life, this is my lady's hand: these be her very C's, her U's, and her T's; and thus makes she her great P's.”
C U ‘n T Haha, suddenly it became much more interesting. It’s a pity that his filthy innuendos are not taught as part of the curriculum. You can probably tell, I am bored to distraction, drugged up with legal remedies, and not wanting to share my medical blemish with others, much like the Clap, oh no another C.
Last weekend, I was hoping to get at least one point from these games. I was expecting it to come from Brentford, but there you go. Plenty of effort today, and losing both CBS so early was a blow. Walcott was my MOTM. At last, a performance from him rather than the plodding going through the motions. I hope to see one or two more as his swan song.
They seemed to concentrate moving the ball from deep left to the right wing a lot. Perraud was exposed quite badly by lack of support by Elyounousi, though he did manage to cover if they attacked down our left flank rather than cross field.
Poor reception for Potter. Before he took over, they were walking parallel paths with Norwich. He turned them into a consistent and attractive side to watch. Typically “entitled” attitude from a bunch of arriviste yokels.
‘Kyle Walker-Peters was nowhere to be seen at the back-post.“ having just described how it only took 12 seconds and 4 passes to carve the defence open. Did Alfie House not notice that it was KWP that slipped and was flat on the ground just outside their penalty area that gave them the break? Podence already had 6 or 7 metres on him before he even got up.
I am aware that Wolves were pressing that gap, simply because KWP is tasked to get forward and make a difference. So where was the midfield covering for him? Normally it would be JWP that KWP passes back to. Great as he is, he is often lacking at providing that cover for KWP.
Just looking to buy extra tickets for the Brentford game. Select Block 35, Kingsland, correct. Click on a seat in RowY, it displays as Itchen Outer seat 265. The administration is a disgrace. Wait until tomorrow and call the ticket office, how very 1990s.
Everyone and their grandma knows that Spuds have a £30m buy back clause, so how anyone thinks we would state £40m is absolute spaff. Spurs could buy back, pocket £10m, and Levy isn’t going to turn that down is he?
I have seen 2 or 3 articles stating that he is under contract to 2025, then mentioning that there has been no progress on his contract. This is utter b0ll0cks surely. Why would we be negotiating 3 years before he is out of contract? Heck, some players are only signed on a 3 year contract.
