Lost and Found

You may be forgiven for thinking I've gone into hibernation, been abducted by aliens or involved in a horrible accident. But the truth is far worse. You may or may not have noticed that a team who 10 days ago were being hailed as the best British club team of all time and had more records under their belt than any other side in history — suffered a bit of a blip this week.

You also may or may not know that I'm a fan of that particular team.

I couldn't watch the Premiership over the weekend (and I don't mean I couldn't get to a telly); so apart from being force fed Wayne Rooney's goal about five times by Saturday, Sunday and Monday nights news bulletins, there's not a lot I can say about the football last week. But I'll try.

Good draw for Fulham, bad draw for United, Liverpool jammy another win and go top and Terry Venebles rejuvenated Leeds… lose again. West Ham get some points, Newcastle get tanked by Arsenal's opponents this Saturday, Chelsea beat a poor side (it's a miracle), Midlands derby ends in boring draw, Middlesborough lose, Villa lose, scum win. Oh yeah, and a bloody 16 year old scally beats probably the best footballing side I've seen in my life.

I was really looking forward to the Champions League games too. Mistake. Two fluke goals from a really impressive Auxerre side made it Arsene ‘dedication's what you need’ Wenger's worst week in about two years. I cannot believe that anyone tried to make out either goal was David Seaman's fault. He kept Arsenal in the game in the second half, and anyone who puts any blame on him does nothing but emphasise the fact that they don't have the foggiest idea what they're talking about.

Finally, to anyone who has a go at Arsenal fans for being a bit miserable, or over reacting to what is effectively just a couple of bad results, I say this; you try not seeing your team lose for the best part of a year. I knew the defeat would come, I just didn't know it would feel quite this disappointing. Having said that, all those ‘fans’ that had the audacity to boo the best side they'll ever see, go fall on a rusty fork.
