  • It made me sad reading about that woman, to be driven to such a measure is indicative of how bad it actually is in some areas, but you have to admit, co-ercing a spacker to 'lift her nightie up' is up there with knock a door run and theiving bottles of milk off doorsteps .. not everyday for months/years on end. if it was your daughter? or is it ok because she was disabled? doesn't matter now though does it? they are both dead. only a harmless bit of fun. discuss? was gonna suggest your user name should be 'benni' 77, but i'd lose the moral high ground

  • Matty, who is learning the game, let sam down and cost us 2 points vs city, his confidence was low back than AND he's not physical, or a sam type player ... for this season at least. what you are really saying is that you want sams results, but you dont want him to play benni or andrews or pedersen, and get the best out of them, but you do want him to play matty, who might score 1 in 4, but would screw up the game plan??

  • January 17, 2009 at 2: 21 pm yeah i agree pat, though zaki is doing it at the moment, so would maybe keep doing it for us til the end of the year, though obviously it wouldn't be a possibility anyways. agree about santa cruz too, look what happened to benni mccarthy, they're very similar situations apart from benni didn't leave before being found out, santa cruz will do marginally better than city's signing of benjani because he was having his one good season last year! wenger said very specifically "kolo will be captain WHEN HE PLAYS" (whilst cesc is out) and i think it was very significant that he specified the when he plays bit, because he won't play ahead of gallas when he's back from injury.
