Pouring down, soaked to the skin and the best game ever for me. Sir Matt said it was one of the best.
H---1957. Not one foreign player on the pitch.
All's okay with me, Lotto, same with you I hope---can't say the same about Pools. None league football for the 1st time in a 100 years coming up.
Haven't bothered with the boards recently, anything interesting anywhere or same old.
One thing is certain, a very strange decision to let him go by Van Gaal, and so cheap at these days exorbitant prices. Could be a real #$%$ biter.
Aaron----Leicester v Arsenal 31st Aug. Szcesny-Debuchy-Monreal-Flamini-Mertersaker-Koscieny-Sanchez- RAMSEY -Sanogo-Cazorla-Ozil. First 2 subs-Rosicky-Podolsky.
H---How did Ramsey sneak in there.
No disrespect to you Arsenal guys etc, a truly great club, but me and thousands like me now are becoming progressively bored stiff with all these overseas signings in the effort to buy instant success. I mean, I'm from the Newcastle area, and look at the Geordies team, it's spot the British player and win a coconut.
Manchester United, desperation millions--mainly Dutch. No wonder the England team are an absolute embarrassment. The situation's bad, getting rapidly worse. Thank the lord the lower divisions still retain a bit of identity in bringing young guys through because they have to to survive.
It's all about money, sponsorship, instant reaction media wise. I only hope Hartlepools stay in the league this season to keep me and Jeff Stelling happy.
H---boring old fart.
