Bob, in your busy schedule, did you catch any of the Arsenal, Spurs, or Chelsea matches?
Bob in all his busy wisdom asked me to tell you that he doesn't particularity care about the Arsenes or other matches this year.
His exact message was 'Bloddy Hell' - due to being busy.
I don't trust you to push me off anything. Even if I did, I wouldn't squeal...of delight or otherwise. I'd be happy to push you though .
She's always been like this. Just slowly exposing it.
The game was pretty poor, to be honest. United lacked interest and verve, plus Fergie put out a bad lineup, and Chelsea didn't seem to be aggressive enough given the circumstances. Did we deserve to win? Yes, because we created like six good chances and United created maybe one.
If you have a chance go check out Craig Gardner's red card in the Sunderland vs Stoke match. According to every commentator, manager, and player, it was a clear straight red, but the angle I've seen in the highlights doesn't look really bad at all. Sure, he caught him, but it looked like a yellow.
I think United's mentality is now correct me if I'm wrong, that they'd got the league won, no other trophies to play for and so they give a chance to fringe players and youngesters. I bet to Fergie, the most important thing would've been not to lose that game to maintain a good home record. He nearly had it too. Gutted.
I've just checked it now on Eurosport and it did look quite bad at normal speed. Gardner didn't seem all that apologetic about the challenge though. He was well within his right to go in for it and it wasn't 2 footed. Looking at it, I'd find it hard not to give a red, but I wouldn't blame the ref if he went with a yellow. It's not a good challenge.
No, you're right, that is their mentality. That's why Chelsea should've gone for it more. Of course, if freaking Demba Ba understood how to head a ball, we would've been ahead in the third minute. After winning at the Bridge for the first time in like 10 seasons in the league, losing at home, even if it was a sort of meaningless home, can't feel good for Fergie.
That's the thing. It wasn't two footed, sure he caught him, but it wasn't that bad. I would've awarded a yellow there. Of course, if I were the ref, I wouldn't have been surprised if Gardner set himself up for another bad tackle later on to get himself sent off for a second yellow or even a straight red.
I feel like eating the whole United Kingdon.
