End of season thoughts

Whilst I pay due credit to Chelsea and Spurs on their incredible season, this is what I have to offer on my side.

Hard to think of positives now. Maybe when I get to see the day the YANKS leave the club for once and for all.

The heartache…

Blubber! What a day it has been! The Reds inch through and the Blues fall through.

Once again I have mixed feelings about our game. At the same time one can say we were poor at the first-half, I would say we had a brilliant second-half. Our fighting spirit was once again there but I am still struggling to understand why we look dangerous only when there are minutes to go. Why do not we play like that the entire game? Why don’t we suffocate our opponents the same way Barcelona did against us at the Emirates? (more…)

A question we at BigFourZa have been asked way too often over the past couple of months is, What ARE you guys going to do next season? The choices we’ve been given are, (more…)

Maddy’s Note: A difficult- to – take night at the Camp Nou is covered by our ‘Foreign Correspondent’ and good mate Felipe. He’s got some tough questions to ask of our board and manager. Please note these are his views and do not Reflect BigFourZa’s views. Indeed, I will be having a vociferous discussion with him arguing various points he has made. Of course, if you don’t agree with him either, leave a comment and let him know.

I don’t doubt your love for Arsenal. But I do doubt that anyone in this world is as pissed as me. I have been rehearsing this article inside my head since the final whistle, and I confess I have failed to decide what to say. I have mixed feelings about this loss. (more…)

What did I say about my constant mood swingings. Coming from the back of a flamboyant victory against Sunderland, I for once finally came to a conclusion that the team has turned the corner. We have already discussed to death on how Liverpool are better off going forward than their overtly cautious approach. If there was any message that we learnt from last season, it was this. Which is exactly why Rafa Benitez himself spent oodles of cash on Glen Johnson and Aquilani, given the might of their attacking prowess. At Portsmouth and though they are shite, we saw players moving all round the field, a rarity this season. For once, “Pass and move, the Liverpool groove” was witnessed and that instilled the belief that we could build the team from there. Sunderland last week must have banished any lingering doubts on our attacking ability. So when the stage was set for Birmingham yesterday, all I expected of the Reds was to give their very best, no matter what the result might be.

An expectation that lead to disappointment, like most of the season.

Before the game, there was a funeral atmosphere around Stamford bridge. The script involved Chelsea going all Indiana-Jones on Mourinho’s Inter Milan and ending it in true bad-ass style with three goals and a clean sheet. Unfortunately, the game panned out more like a Japanese horror movie than a good-always-beats-evil Harrison Ford starrer, where, in a completely uncalled for plot twist, the villain, who the hero is about to stuff into a meat grinder, comes back to life, shoots the hero twice in the head and then proceeds to dance over his dead body.

And if Chelsea’s Champions League hopes  being put to rest in front of 40,000 Chelsea faithful was not enough, Mourinho then proceeded to render a heart rending eulogy which, surprisingly, was not in English, Portuguese or the more recently acquired Italian. Mourinho’s men did their talking on the field, and his message was extremely clear, “Stamford Bridge. Still my bitch.

The only coherent thoughts in my head after the game were these.

Mourinho is clearly gay.

The Chelsea Fan in me.

I guess I’m a little gay for Mourinho.

The Football Fan in me.

Where did it all go wrong?

When I reflect, I can honestly say that last night, Anelka was good. Defensively, so was Zhirkov. But therein lies the problem. (more…)
