Happy St Totteringham’s Day

14 05 2012

So we did it… far, far later in the year than I would have liked but you know what they say, better late than never.

A 3-2 win against the “Baggies” yesterday saw us snatch third place therefore guaranteeing us Champions League football again next year.

Perhaps more importantly, well for me at least, a win yesterday means that T*ttenham finish fourth….

Now excuse my ignorance here but I am fairly sure that 4th is below 3rd in the table. What’s that? It is you say.

Well in that case allow me to wish you a very happy St Totteringham’s Day.

Well I am so glad to see that the much talked of “Power Shift” in North London is still in effect and that Spurs best team in living memory has done oh so well.

Except they didn’t…Hahahahahahahahaha. Let this be a lesson to all of you fans of the chicken on a basketball lads; premature gloating,boasting and a chip on the shoulder that McCains would be proud of get you precisely nothing.

All of a sudden I am hoping that Chelski play a blinder in the Champions League final and give Bayern an absolute thumping. Not because I like Chelsea, really I don’t, but just to ensure that you mugs get everything you deserve in the form of some nice Thursday night football.

A Bould choice but the right man for the job

8 05 2012

Ever since it was announced that Pat Rice would be hanging up his trademark shorts and dark glasses at the end of this seasom the rumour mill has been turning as to who would replace him as Arsene Wenger’s number two.

Such ex-Arsenal greats as Tony Adams, Dennis Bergkamp and Martin Keown had been touted for the role however Arsene Wenger and the board have turned to another ex player in the form of academy head coach and defensive great Steve Bould.

Bould has been part of the youth coaching set up at Arsenal since 2001 and has helped guide the youngsters to  Premier Academy League victories in 2008-2009, 2009-2010 and the FA Youth Cup in 2008-2009.

For anyone who was too young, not yet an Arsenal fan or living under a rock here is a list of honours that Bould won as part of that famous back four:

  • League championship winner: 1988-89, 1990-91, 1997-98
  • FA Cup winner 1993
  • League Cup winner 1993
  • UEFA Cup Winners Cup winner 1994 (and runner-up 1995)
