"We gotta hit the ground running". . . "We've got the most feared strike partnership in the league" . . . "Rafa will deliver no19 fer sure". . .
These are just some of the oft-heard sentiments among Kopites before the start of the league. Well, nothing could be further from the truth. A truly awful stalemate against Standard Liege & a lacklustre display v Sunderland underlines just how far we are behind our rivals.
Sorry, me knows it early days yet, but shit, no Kopite can tell me s/he wasn't a touch disappointed by the new no7's display. Fook, all he did was get in the way of Torres scoring! The rest . . . well, wasn't much better was it? Hyppia anyone?
Couple that with our OBVIOUS lack of width, looks like another season of tussling with the other also rans fer that coveted fourth fooking spot just to ensure financial survival.
Plus the fact that the fooking Yanks who still own the club aren't exactly pally wally & Rafa himself canna see eye to eye with that fookhead with a perm, Rick Fooking Parry. Don't bode well fer any sort of title challenge.
Yes, yes, me is a whiny, pessimistic bitch. The 19 years of nothingness kinds of does that to you. Sucks to be a Kopite, but hey, could be worse . . . imagine being a fooking City or Spurs fan . . .
ps: The three points, though, much appreciated shouldn't disguise the fact that we are still some way off from being genuine title challengers.
pps: Of course, look forward to reading what other genuine fans think about the new season & yer aspirations of course.
