The Good, The Bad & The Referees!
Am sure lotsa of yer had a great weekend of EPL footie. Here's me two cents worth:
1) Hull Fooking City! No one, and me means abso-fooking-lutely no one, gave em a snow flakes chance in hell of getting anything out of the Emirates. Given the Gooners red hot form & the scintillating footie they were playing, the ultra-unfashionable new boys were expected to be on the wrong end of a butt fook. "Five-fooking-nil," said Macca on Football Forecast! Well, the Tigers showed em & proved that there is some semblance of romanticism & unpredictability yet in the EPL.
2) Reds triumph in Merseyside derby. Crap game with stoppages every two minutes. Senseless sending off but great result fer us & great to see Torres end his barren spell. To all Kopites looking fer a Bluenose to taunt, here you go, please leave yer comments at Evertonian Amir's blog: http://puterabatu.blogspot.com/ . (Do feel free to drop a comment or two, me already has!)
The Spurs - Poor start continues fer big spending Spurs as loss to Pompey see them firmly rooted to the fooking bottom of the table. Selling more than half the squad just prior to window closing means Ramos has a huge task of gelling the new arrivals into cohesive unit. Poor start means qualification (via league position) fer Europe is more or less out the window fer Spurs. To Moz & Anand, hang in there. We feel yer pain.
Am sorry. But these fooking bastards in black are fooking hijacking the game we love. Last week, there was the fiasco of Gerard's 100th "goal" v Stoke. Then there was the phantom goal @ Vicarage Road. This week? Cahill's sending off in the Merseyside derby, Wigan's dubious penalty winner & Rob Fooking Styles awful penalty decision against Bolton. Totally changed the complexion of the game. Perfect tackle but chose to award mancs a pen. And yes, me would be just as pissed off if it was us who benefited. Why? Coz we're football fans first . . .
ps: Look forward to yer comments on what you think can be done to minimise the impact of refs making shite decisions. Me is all in favour of vid replays. What say you?
