It’s good to see the Gunners banging in goals like it’s out of fashion. Not surprised though. I still maintain that it’s the Steve Bould effect, because they have always been a good attacking side but weak defensively (since Tony Adams left). Now all that has changed because Steve Bould has made that defence look impenetrable. For now at least. However does this mean they will not lose at all this season or they will win all trophies available? I don dey fear these boys o. Lost my bet when Giroud scored the 1st goal against Conventry in the Capital One cup on Wednesday night. I had predicted he wasn’t going to score till December. Technically I think my prediction is still on point jor. Were you there when I said it? Hahahahahaha, perhaps I think I was refering to the league games when I said so. Big ups to the Gooners. Nice game. Arsenal beat Conventry 6-1. Enemies una dey say na Conventry dem beat abi? Is it not the opponent handed to them they will play? Arsenal fans dont get caught up in my defence for your team, I still hate your team. #Word.
There is still only one UNITED. Manchester United definitely. The young side played some impressive footie against Newcastle. The backline was made up of youngsters, but I will give special mentions to this trio on the night; Tom Cleverly, Anderson and Chicharito. Apparently they didn’t do anything special but they reminded me of the Man Utd I used to support. Newcastle United was no soft meat, but the Red Devils held their own. Glad Fletcher is back and Rooney too. Anderson and Cleverly took their goals well. Though Cleverly missed what I would describe as a sitter in the 1st half. United led 2-0 until the introduction of Papis Cisse who scored a consolatory goal for Newcastle just a minute after coming on. The dude got me scared. He even hit the crossbar. The game ended 2-1. #HappyAndThankful. Now we face Spurs today. Choi. Well we have always been their boss. No shaking.
Chelsea thrashed Wolves 6-0 and Man City was knocked out of the Capital One cup by one of my favourite English teams (Aston Villa). Villa beat Shitty 4-2 at the Ethihad stadium. It’s funny how porous the City defence has become. They have conceded 16 goals and scored 17 in all competitions. #sloppydefending. See me wey dey yab person. Na only 2 clean sheets we get. Not bothered about other results in the Capital one cup jare (No disrespect).
Juventus still unbeaten in 44 league games. Arsenal’s 49 games unbeaten record is around the corner. Another team catching my fancy now is the Falcao led Athletico Madrid. They have started the season well. Write them off at your peril. Chelsea knows best. I see Athletico Madrid in the Champions league next season.
I have decided to add a twist to my predictions by going up against anybody I want. E fit be you o. This weekend I would be going against one of my role models and brother. I call him Big Yomz. Big Yomz is also a Man Utd fan. I asked him a few questions too.
