Report by Gerry McDonnell
I’ve recently discovered the tough way that you ought to by no means talk about politics and religion. My lodger and I grew to become embroiled in a furious row about the conflict in Iraq. Dave was extremely vocal in his condemnation of Bush but he flew off the handle when I criticised Brown. It nearly came to blows.
The day soon after our acrimonious political altercation, we fell out above his attempt to convert the spouse into devout Christianity. I was less than happy when I arrived residence from work early to listen to a chant of “Oh God” emanating from the spare bed room.
As a result of our constant bickering, I had to inquire Dave to move out. He didn’t react well to my decision he attempted to smash my back door in. The wife was really disappointed with the unpleasant end result, as she’d basically bent above backwards to make him really feel welcome.
Roy Keane and Alex Ferguson can empathise with my predicament. Sir Alex had to offload the occupied Irishman right after he criticised a amount of team-mates. I can comprehend why Fergie was so upset only a mug would purchase Kieran Richardson after Keane’s vitriolic volley.
The return of United’s prodigal son has additional true spice to Sunderland’s trip to Outdated Trafford. A scenario can be created for backing the Mackems at 18/one, but it has more holes than Amy Winehouse. I have to side with Manchester United at 1/4.
Robbie Savage has his critics, but I’d happily location the Welshman alongside Keane, Vieira and Makelele if I was developing an ‘odd 1 out’ query. The 5/four for a Blackburn win above Manchester City stands out like a sore thumb.
When I heard that Kieron Dyer had damaged his leg in two places, my quick ideas have been ‘Lee Bowyer’s house’ and ‘Craig Bellamy’s golf club’. West Ham are a distinct side to the team that had been on the conclude of a six- shoeing at Reading through final season, the Hammers can consider revenge at 23/ten.
Cheryl Cole remarkably turned down a £150,000 Bentley from her rich husband, since she felt ‘she didn’t earn it’. The solution is fairly apparent. I’m heading down the bookies to take thirteen/5 for a draw among Aston Villa and Chelsea.
I’d enjoy to see Sammy Lee succeed at Bolton, but the only way he’ll still be employed at Christmas is if he finds 6 pals. An Everton win at the Reebok is accessible at 2/one that’s lots huge adequate.
How on earth were Fulham not awarded a penalty versus Aston Villa very last week? Craig Gardner’s handling in the place was so impressive Petr Cech and John Terry equally rang to congratulate him. Lawrie Sanchez is most likely the unluckiest manager in the league at the minute, Spurs can take advantage at eleven/eight.
Pompey are set to release David Nugent a mere month soon after splashing out £6m on him. These an eventuality would have been a 999/one shot on the exchanges, but it wouldn’t have lasted prolonged. The 8/fifteen for Arsenal beating Pompey is equally as appealing.
Liverpool v Derby could effectively demonstrate to be the best mismatch since Kate Moss paired off with Pete Doherty. The grasp songsmith could have completed a great deal far better. You won’t locate a greater banker than Liverpool at 2/nine.
I was disappointed to see Mido react to inflammatory chants previous weekend. A expert footballer is paid handsomely to dismiss provocation from the crowd, and Mido can make great bread. All of our finances will acquire a boost if we take the eleven/ten for a Middlesbrough win about Birmingham.
The FA’s choice to start an enquiry into the Newcastle supporters’ behaviour is typically over the top. If you inquire me, it is becoming blown out of all proportion. I’ll happily make a fuss about the 3/4 for a Newcastle win about Wigan.
Mido labelled the offending supporters as ‘drunks’ following the match, which I discovered quite offensive. I partake in the occasional swift number of beers myself, but I’m not a drunk I’m a connoisseur of the liquid bint-thinner. A 14/1 weekend accer of Middlesbrough, Newcastle, Man Utd, Arsenal and Blackburn will spend for sufficient lager to drop the spouse down a number of dimensions.
