Yup haha. Probably has te best feet in the premier league (not skill, just quick feet) but the worse brain by hard. He basically is a bike going down a slope with no breaks

Bradford

9 from Arsenals possibly best XI started the game which makes it even more fun

Arsenal must have hit the posts 10 times though

If you were offered Arshavin and a Brazilian for cheap, wouldn't you take it?

The club's business model presently budgets for 11 big earners at most, which amounts to a long-term commitment never to possess an adequate squad.

Maybe the extra income from the next TV deal will allow NUFC to be a little more active in the transfer market from May 2013, the risk of relegation notwithstanding.

Then the open goal is missed and they bury their faces in their hands, while all around them people leap to their feet in sadistic glee.

The dubious pleasures of infiltrating home supporters...

Ahh the memories of putting on generic northern accents when calling up Blackburn/Bolton/Leeds ticket offices. Surprised by how often it worked.

In the case of Blackburn and Leeds, the owners probably would prefer to fill their stadium with away fans. That way they'd take less abuse.
