The fantastic turnaround job at Watford under Pearson continues

Joined on 9th December with the team bottom of the league with 1 win from 16 games and a total of 9 points. Nobody has ever survived from such a hopeless position

2-0 at Bournemouth and about to jump out of the bottom three, gaining 13 points from 6 games

Obviously not as credible as our 1-1 draw at Bournemouth
and average of less than 1.2 points since Emery's departure ! I mean we've had to tackle the likes of Brighton, Norwich and Palace in that tough run of games



Why do those championing arteta and the so called improvements, not acknowledge that results show a different story ? Lets look at reality here - since December 1st Bournemouth have been beaten by palace, burnley, brighton, the shammers and now Watford, and every single one of those teams are deeply in the shit but we are supposed to feel encouraged by our draw there ?? Do me a fcuking favour :roll: I can already here the excuses coming about how it was a good point considering where our morale is/was, but yet every single one of those teams was in a much worse position than us, and if you picked the best combined 11 out of all those teams, they still wouldn't be as good ON PAPER as what we have :oops: :oops:

Everyone and their dog have beaten Bournemouth in recent times and today.......0-3 against a relegation rival sums it up. 90 minutes of huff and puff from us down there and scrambled a 1-1 draw.

Watch us huff and puff against their reserves in a fortnight's time too

Just surpassed it. Still not better than Henry.



Like I said, as a natural goal scorer, nobody in the premier league history comes anywhere near close to aguero
He has also overtaken most hat tricks ( by Shearer ) now out in his own

And I believe I heard a stat lately that no player has scored as many goals against the other big 6 teams as aguero has - man is different gravy 8)

Agüero class but not Henry.

That is all.

Watching City tear Villa apart one cannot believe they are so far behind the victims. Some of their football is mesmerising at times....I've never seen the dippers play like that. Looking at the table you would think there is a chasm between the teams, but there isn't, I think City play the better football.

I hope the victims win the title early, then the last part of their season is crammed full of disappointments, losing for the first time, CL & FA Cup defeats, in fact, losing both finals will be even better. Let their season end with a bad taste in the mouth, winning the league a distant memory. Is that being spiteful :? :?

Just a small lesson from history. Nottingham forest won the league title during their 42 game unbeaten run, and finished 2nd in the season their unbeaten run ended. Arsenal also won the league title during the 49 unbeaten run and finished second in the season that run ended. Manchester United ended both Arsenal's and Chelsea's unbeaten runs in the premier league. Wouldn't it be great if history repeated itself again!!
It probably won't but would be funny.

Two Wolves officials sitting behind Nuno Esprito Santo were clearly laughing and looking around the stadium tonight when the attendance was announced at Old Trafford.

Fuck the PL augs. Here's an interesting article about one of the very few scum players I don't despise - probably because he always had good things to say about the Arsenal even once admitting in an interview that we were by far the bigger club:

Yeah! I remember when the saturday morning/midday Footie TV was Saints & Greavesy…


He did punditry for a while and always gave a proper balanced view and knew the game inside out.

Sad that drink get the better of him :?

They had one of the best strikers in the world, of his generation, still couldn't win the league.
Greaves and Best the '60's equivalent of Ronaldo and Messi.

So the week before the victims played the scum the crayon muncher did his hammy and missed the game and now the week before they play united Rashford get's injured.

Whatever slim hope united had on Sunday just went out the fucking window, absolutely EVERYTHING is going for those c.unts :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:
