Jack the fact I had forgotten to reply makes the last two messages show even further how much we're in the Football Gods grasp. You can give it back to them as much as they gave it out.

We think and all roads reasonably point to a beating and yet we end up winning with a clean sheet, keeping us happy league wise until April. smiley - laugh

I have to say that Monday was a hugely enjoyable day in work. smiley - biggrin

I didn't want it to end. Pretty unusual for a Monday. smiley - whistle

And I made the most of it because deep down I know that our entire season is about to come to a crashing halt when Rennes knock us out this week. smiley - sadface

We're going to finish trophyless for the first time since the 12/13 season because we always at least picked up a Community Shield since then. But not now. It's almost as if we were Spurs or something. smiley - grrsmiley - grr

Jack we're playing a friendly in Dubai or something soon so maybe we can have that match involve a trophy.

Lacazette can play so he is bound to get an own goal when he shouldn't be on the pitch. smiley - grr

Also at the rate Theresa May is gaining votes got her deal, give her four more months and she'll nail it!

Okay Mac, what are those Gods up to?

I reckon there's only one reason they would allow us to sneak through last night. They want Chelsea to be the team that finally kills off our season. smiley - grr

The only question is whether they decide to make it happen in the last eight, last four or the final. smiley - grr

But it's going to happen. They're already making it plain that Chelsea are going to win the trophy. Why else would they give them an 8-0 victory? smiley - grr

Okay, so Napoli have been chosen as the team to knock us out whereas Chelsea virtually get two byes into the final.

Wondeful. smiley - grrsmiley - grr

Yes our reward for a stunning comeback is to face the manager that hammered us 10-2 on aggregate not long ago. smiley - grr

At least Man Utd will be cursing their luck just as much. smiley - whistle

And that Messi guy seems to be on a good run of form too. smiley - whistle

Still at least Brexit is coming along nicely, Mac. You guys are making up for the loss of all those EU markets by signing a trade deal with Liechtenstein. smiley - laugh

Isn't he Arsenal's right back?

Jack, we'll be the envy of the world. Also our glorious leader has declared she is on our side. Which other country can say that eh?

Good to hear she's on your side, Mac.

After all, if she wasn't on your side, you might be facing a constitutional crisis, or a catastrophic economic collapse, or an isolationist future, or a giant hike in inflation after all those tariffs apply to imports, or millions of unemployed because you've chosen to turn your back on your most lucrative markets or even a currency that's so valueless that a resident of Zimbabwe would consider it to be worthless.

And you wouldn't want any of that, would you? smiley - doh

Exactly Jack, with May on our side we have a clear understanding of where we are going.

smiley - grr

May's supreme negotiating skills has meant that if he deal is voted down we stay in the EU for a shorter time than if it is voted for.

Exactly how Spursy are Spurs?

They are very, very Spursy, Mac.

That own goal at Anfield was one of the most Spursy things I've ever seen. smiley - laugh

And, it's starting to look like Manchester United's appointment of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer might turn out to be a frankly hilarious blunder. They were seduced by his honeymoon period and appopinted him just as the whole thing was falling apart. smiley - laugh

Let's just say that today was a pleasant day in the office. smiley - whistle

And speaking of things falling apart, what the hell has been wrong with this site lately? I keep getting that picture of a tree when I try to lock in. Stoopd hamsters. smiley - grrsmiley - grr

Jack it's a perfectly good tree.

Also, ah yes Ole at the wheel has driven them from the lows of sixth to the heady heights of... sixth. smiley - laugh

It's looking like we broke them.

Tottenham had the Go Compare man at their stadium opening ceremony. Need I say more?

Away matches should be banned, Mac.

We are absolute rubbish away from home. And two thirds of our remaining games are away.

6th it is, then. smiley - grr

And why does Emery keep resting Ramsey? It's almost as if he wants him to be nice and fresh for Juventus next season. smiley - grr

McNamara That Ghost

Jack, you are right it doesn't make sense. Surely at some point in the season resting players has to stop, otherwise what are you resting them for?

They're going to let Tottenham win the Champions League aren't they?

Yes, Mac.

That is an absolute guarantee now. smiley - grrsmiley - grr

They organised for Guardiola to become insane just before picking his team for a CL QF. smiley - doh

That pretty much proves what their hideous plan is. smiley - grrsmiley - grr
