What a fooking terrible weekend. Fer those of you who read me previous posting or know me pessimistic nature, you'll know that me thinks our title challenge has been dealt a fatal blow on Saturday with our stalemate at the Brittania. Kudos to Stoke fer putting us to the sword.
Am seriously fooking depressed. We threw it away again. Last season, we finished fourth due to 13 draws. At the halfway point, we have already drawn 8 fooking times. While we may not finish fourth, me can certainly tell you we ain't finishing first.
Sad but fooking true.
So me was (still is) under a cloud on Sunday when me heard the venerated Shebby Singh make some comments regarding Rafa's tirade against "Mr Ferguson" during the build-up to Super Sunday.
Me has never written to Football Focus, but Shebby's moronic statements compelled me to (see below). Feel free to add yer comments . . .
Dear Mr John Dykes,
Although I have watched Football Focus for a few years now, I have never felt compelled to write in . . .until now.
This email is not with regards to anything said during Football Focus but rather Shebby's comments in the run-up to Sunday's games. When discussing Rafa Benitez's tirade against Fergie, Shebby had this to say:
"What Rafa does not understand is Fergie is an institution in English football . . . In fact he's an institution in world football . . . He has earned the right to question the FA & the fixture list . . ."
The mind absolutely boggles. Although I am a Kopite who feels Rafa should NOT have been sucked into playing Fergie's mind games, I am utterly at a lost for Shebby's sycophantic views. Is this why Shebby is an "honorary" manc in Malaysia?
Fergie complained about having to play away domestically after away European games. Can Fergie or Shebby explain how is it possible to come up with a anti-united fixture list when the Premier League fixtures were done quite a few weeks AHEAD of the Champions League group draw?
C'mon, NO ONE earns the right to be a hypocrite. Did Fergie complain when his team got an extra day's rest during the X'mas period when everyone else (besides mu & villa) had to play two games in 48 hours?
Somewhat myopic to suggest a conspiracy in the face of that FACT, don't you think?
Mind games? No matter who you are, you CANNOT insinuate that certain teams are THROWING matches, like he did when claiming teams were taking it easy against Keegan's Newcastle. If its okay to intimate your rivals of MATCH FIXING just because you are an old war horse like Fergie, then it should be okay for Rafa to speak his mind (he was spot on by the way).
This is not a personal attack on Shebby. But as a well-paid pundit on ESPN, he owes us viewers the decency to engage his brain when giving his opinions & NOT spout such bollocks.
