A reader once said my posts are void of controversies. I guess the ice has just been broken. Here’s another one
I would like to express my sincere thanks to all the Arse fans who sent in their appreciation of my post. Buoyed by their response I would like to give them back a second installment of my thoughts on yesterdays match. But before beginning a few comments on the Arses. First of all you lot disappoint me. When I knew the writers of this blog were conspiring on that Factfile, I took it in good jest. But making cock jokes at Liverbird has bought out the worst of you and I deem it as an insult similar to calling Mother India a bitch. Second, I do understand that the Scousers in this blog are outnumbered by the Arses by a humungously large number, to go by recent estimates about 1657 to 1. But that doesn’t mean a handful of you preaching self-righteousness in your own hackneyed-cockneyed style, know any thing remotely related to football, which as one our writers once proposed includes Liverpool FC. So why would you want to make cock jokes at our club, even after winning. Why call us wounded animals. Why should Stevie G according to you lot, hang his head in shame. Well the answer to these questions has got something to do with this pic.
And Kudos to our Arsenal pundit for winning the guess the distance between the goal line and Fabregas contest with his “closer to Everton’s touchline at Goodison than Almunia”.
So one guy really had the nerve to ask a valid question about Babel’s so called dive which happened in 2007 B.C. and it is strange that I keep getting asked the same question every 2 times a year ever since. Here’s my thought but first, what is a dive? We have been through this already in one of the earlier posts, but for the sake of the amnesiac Arsenal fans, “an attempt to con the ref by trying to induce the idea of a contact”. Babel was body challenged. And yeah it’s not a penalty I agree. But I won’t call that a BLATANT dive. Stevie G was blocked by Diaby a thousand times yesterday. And to shocking horror, he wasn’t actually found appealing for a foul in any case. I don’t understand how on earth is that a dive. A dive is what Bendtner did yesterday. It’s what Eboue did. Prove me wrong about it and I’ll accept defeat.
Where Liverpool actually lost it
Enough of explaining stuff. At the end of the day we were poor, and didn’t deserve to win. We lacked firepower and Ngog looked like a three-year old lost in a carnival at Rio( wasn’t meant as a reference :)) Maxi Rodriguez our January signing totally bombed. Think his good old days are over with Madrid. Apart from Stevie G none of the forward players looked comfy with the ball.
Our Starting line-up
It’s really difficult to understand why Riera didn’t make it to the starting line-up or wasn’t substituted in. We missed him and as much as it gets we are in all likeliness going to miss him forever. Riera played god-level football for Spain and it sucks to think he is made to rot in the bench. We need him against City. Babel still remains an unsolved Fermat’s last theorem in Rafa’s plans. There is no-sense in keeping him and not starting with him. Still missing Torres, Benny and Glen. Sigh
Liverpool is fun
As some of you might have known, our blog hit the 1000 mark recently. The Next day we hit 1500 and now we are looking at the 2k mark. Yes we have found some interesting ways to market ourselves, but still the post that has been most viewed in the history of the blog is the Factfile on Liverpool. I guess Liverpool is fun. Which is why people don’t talk about Chelsea’s man marking even though they have conceded 16 of their 21 goals conceded that way. Commentators have said Benayoun should quit Liverpool for substituting him in a match. People don’t foresee the injury of Torres every time he is subbed while playing in pain. It’s an interesting viewpoint actually. We sell. Which is actually why people are begging to leave their think tank in freezers to look like smart alecs while they pound on us non-sensically.
No matter how many times the writers of this blog try to avoid us by saying “Enough with Liverpool”, “Liverpool are not worth considering” blah blah blah you guys couldn’t just do it. :)
