Had a blinkin hypo in the middle of Thursday night, then had to go to the docs on Friday morning at her previous
request and she asked me the same questions as the week before, finishing with “How’s your memory” - which I found to be a bit ironic!
So it was a tiring drive down to London but arrived at teatime.
Wanted a lie in on the Saturday morning but having offered it to Ged, the Blue Vic and Sean who all declined did an interview with Talksport at 7.15am. Would’ve predicted a ‘Desmond’ but forgot!
Drove to Cockfosters but the car park was full so stuck it in a church yard and hoped for the best. Tube to Arsenal, sold a few KK217’s and chatted to fellow Blues. Entered the Emirates just as the booing started for the BT Sports team including daft sod Ian Wright who thought it was amusing to point out Paul Scholes who was called a wanker by City fans but no missiles were thrown at him as he exited the tunnel below us. Shaky start but soon we went a goal up. Clattenburke blew for City fouls but not Arsenals and of course delighted in booking our players, but not theirs.
Second half they equalised, could ‘ve been a foul on Serge, then they went 2-1 up after a blatant push by Welbeck on Vinny in the box, how the Clitt missed that I don’t know, but then……..remember Skrtel at Liverpool last season?
We showed real character then, equalising, then hitting the post twice plus having a goal disallowed before full time.
Fans ‘mingled’ after the game without any bother, we caught the tube back to Cockfosters, chatted to Rochdale’s finest, Tony Dempsey at the station, and his mates, car still there, and had a steady drive home.
Chelsea won again with a Costa hat-trick though surely he should have been sent off before his first for flooring that Swansea player?
Rags beat a poor QPR team with their newly acquired mercenaries/galacticos.
So a decent start to the week for us, despite the MUEN not printing my Art Garfunkel letter in the postbag! Leslie Holt it’s all yours!!
