Manuel Almunia: God Amongst Men

Manuel Almunia, Tottenham Hotspur Blog News
Don't you just love the stubbornness of some men, especially those you view as your enemy? Mr. Wenger has been lambasted in the past for not signing a quality goal-keeper, but we all know how Arsène reacts to criticism.

Let me introduce Manuel Almunia. This man capped off a delightful Saturday for me and possibly the majority of Chelsea, Manchester United and Spurs fans. I was sat in the Shelf when the jumbo-tron displayed Arsenal's result. The cheer that echoed around me was nearly, if not more so, louder than when we scored our second goal against Portsmouth.

I then saw the goal on Match of Day.

Ha ha ha ha ha ha!

Manny, you are a God amongst men!

Oh and before I go, I want to remind Mr. Wenger that Football is a contact sport, which, by definition, means that players are allowed to tackle each other, as long as the tackling is within the rules of course.

So Arsène, before running off your mouth in a post-match press conference, take a good look at the evidence. Craig Gardner won the ball cleanly. Fair enough, he may have knocked Fabregas to the ground, but as I said, Football is a contact sport.

"Arsenal must learn to win ugly" - I've heard that before

11:50 am
Another year, and another Arsenal player has come to the forefront with a comment of how Arsenal need to learn to play ugly.

Sound familiar? Believe it or not Theo Walcott's latest statement isn't the first time an Arsenal player has said exactly the same thing.

Emmanuel Adebayor in August 2008 said the same thing! He saw no change and so jumped ship (or is about to).

In November 2007, England International wanabe, Manuel Almunia, said the same thing.

There seems to be trend setting it. Arsenal simply can't play ugly. They may play fantastic football, but when it comes to getting their shirts dirty, they haven't got a hope in hell.

I expect them to have another trophyless laiden season and cannot see Cesc Fabregas playing for them in the 2010/2011 season.

With Manchester City now Arsenal's greatest rival, they may have to learn how to play ugly and learn quickly, for without a Champions League revenue stream, they may be in a spot of bother



Digg!
