Our 12 goals in three days might have boosted our goal difference above United’s, leaving us just 18 away from 100 in the league (117 overall) so far this season with an average of more than 2.5 goals a game in the league but heaven forbid we should get any credit for it eh? Because [...]
Hindsight is a funny old thing eh? Before our game against Villa at the weekend, Carlo Ancelotti was threatening to give up smoking for longer than the course of a game if we overcome our crisis of confidence enough to lift the Premier League trophy this season, stating “I said that once before, at Milan, [...]
How much fuss did a couple of nothing incidents in our game against Pompey cause eh? It’s a man’s game and yet, when we put a bit of fight into a performance, we’re all but accused of GBH. What’s that all about?

Mind you, [...]

Deco also got his first start since [...]

Venue: Fratton Park Date: Wednesday, 24 March 2010 Kick-off: 1945 GMT Right now we’re sitting 3rd in the table behind both United and Arsenal, which pretty much reflects what’s happened to our form of late. Tonight’s game in hand against Portsmouth gives us the chance to make up a bit of the ground we’ve lost [...]
I’m seriously losing the will to live this season. If we do manage to get our act together anytime soon – and I’m really not convinced we will – it’ll be too late the way we’re dropping points. And given the games we’ve got coming up, Blackburn wasn’t one I’d bargained on us cocking up.
