shifted over the weekend.
Pompey had played their worst game since ‘Arry left and nicked a last minute penalty to beat Sunderland on Saturday for the first win under Donkey Adams, while a day later Spurs were one nil down to City, after a Gomes palm into the middle of the box.
It could only be the fault of one man – Joe Jordan – he left Pompey, there luck improved, he’d joined us and things were going so well. I mean how many old strikers does ‘Arry need on the coaching staff? Clive, Sir Les and now Toothy Joe, can only image the discussions between him and Pavlyuchenko as neither of them have the best command of the English language – definaately. Any chance of a defensive coach coming in at some point?
But thankfully the power of ‘Arry trumps the negative energy created by the black hole where Joe used to have teeth. Also we had the power of City to fall flat on their faces while their boss might be fighting for his job.
And then there was the ref, who had a difficult afternoon when weighing up whether to do the right thing and send of the two City players or chicken out and save himself from the barrage of drivel from the Welsh windbag. Yes Mark it was wet out there but the conditions had absolutely nothing to do with the stupid swipe Fernandes had at Modric or the inept challenge on Bentley he put in when he knew he was on a tightrope, it also had nothing to do with Dunne’s push on Bent to stop him scoring the third. It also played no part in the stupid things Assou-Ekotto did to get two bookings to follow the other two off the park.
Yes Mark I know who you are and who you used to play for and I know you seem to think that should make a difference.
So four league games for ‘Arry, three wins and a draw, 10 points out of 12, 10 goals scored with 6 conceded. Behind in three of the games to come back and win two, draw the other to get out of the relegation zone. Only 8 points off Villa in the European spot now 😉 😀
Bent can’t stop scoring and looks more like the player from Charlton now he knows he’s going to play most of the games. Modric is running games with the style and class we expected when he signed but I wish ‘Arry would stop bringing him off, it changes the whole set up and not for the better. We were cruising until his substitution, after they just dropped off, giving City all the encouragement they needed as the likes of Jenas just disappeared meaning Spurs were hanging on in the end.
That’s the thing it can get better than this, dump Jenas, get someone better than Zokora, find a way to win a league game with Bale in the side and Bentley is still short of his best yet.
