And so the elusive 19th runs away….. Yet again!!!!

Guess its finally over now…. Liverpool’s bid for the elusive 19th title has finally imploded, left limping by a collection of draws at home against the stoke citys, fulhams, Hull Citys and co this season, the final blow to severe the jugular seems to have been struck yesterday.. And for good measure, it had to come from an ex-Liverpool player from the Blue half of Manchester……

That leaves the Champions League to look towards — and with the kind of form Barca were in until this weekend, a Real Madrid finally getting into their stride and a host of other decent teams still in with a shout, it could be another long trek back home without any silverware. This summer the Yanks, Rafa, Parry and everyone at this football club needs to take a long hard look at how the season turned out. In a season that was ours for the taking, we imploded in January and handed the initiative to the Mancs….

As my friend Puksi, an Arsenal fan said, maybe we should just content ouselves with winning the titles in Football Manager, cos in the real world the gulf is way too big…….

  1. LOL.. Sounds very despondent.. But then I guess Liverpool fans are used to the feeling.. Rafa ultimately seems to make too many bad decisions in the transfer market & now he wants more control..? From Keane, voronin, pennant, mark gonzalez, (attempted)gareth barry, arbeloa.. its a never ending list.Pity though.. cos i quite fancied them this season..

  2. By fire, by force, Arsenal will return back to the top of the league where we rightly belong. Awww, Danny you're sooo kind to offer to pay for my season ticket. God will reward you.

  3. @Dabizniz — Have to agree man — where Man U can call up a Tevez from the bench, we had to look for an El Zhar to come off the bench… Can't say I'm as optimistic over the OT game… If we can't beat the likes of Man City, then winning
    @ OT may just become a moot issue
    @Confessions – Yes u did…. But considering I'm a third generation Liverpool fan, plus the Mancs are just down the East Lancs road from us, it would be akin to Figo quiting Barca to play for Real Madrid.. ie HIGH TREASON…. Err.. u sure we can't convince you to decamp to the Liverpool side? or Maybe the Barcelona side?
    @RocNaija – Unfortunately bro, its a recurring feeling.. Plus the fact that the Mancs will equal our 18 championships makes it all the more gallinbg..
    @Buttercup — Well — Enjoy it…. Hopefully, we can ship out the Yanks and get some decent investment into the club for the final push.
    @Teee — Err.. not sure when i offered the Emirates ticket o! But then i'm sure God can still reward me for good intent!..lo
    l@NaijaBloggers Award — Been there — Thanks for stopping by
    @Funms — Arsenal ppl sef. Una no suppose dey talk o…….. Una dey the same trophyless ship as Liverpool.. Plus na UEFA una go play next season o…

  5. LOL @ 5th Generation Man Utd fan —– I will need to infiltrate the 9ja delta militant organization and become a king pin for me to be able to afford the Jimmy Choos + Carribean + season tickets… As far as I know the only season tickets I have to give away are my current Liverpool ones.. lolDunno abt the laptop keyboard tho….. There should be some repair centre or sthng u can take it to… Will probably need some cleaning to dislodge the stuf beneath the key..

  7. lol…. not covered by insurance or sthng? 3 months is pretty new IMO…..anyways.. on the Liverpool thingy, alex needed 7 yrs to catch US in the early 90s, Rafa has only had 5ish years, and a whole lot less money in real terms anyways…We'll come good in a few yrs… On second thoughts i'll just hold on to my season ticket… I'll probably be able to watch the games without any real risk of significanty elevated blood pressure anyways!

  14. Me I no like football that much except when Nigeria is playing. But then I married an Arsenal fan so I guess that makes me one doesn't it?It seems they aren't doing so well this season but I'll still scream "Up Arsenal!" hehehe!(Sometimes I really wish i knew what the hype about football is all about!)

  15. @Enkay – LOL… Football, beautiful football is almost an art form….. Intricate one-touch passing, sublime Messi-esque skill, quick thinking, free-kicks that almost seem to defy the laws of physics, tactical plays, or even simple brute force make for an entirely absorbing spectacle…. When you add the inconsistencies that referees bring into play, and the historical "wrongs" that have occured in the past (the Celtic-Rangers split, or the Liverpool-Everton one) its a sweltering cesspool of elation, passion and sometimes plain old rage!……..Ah the beautiful game!!!!Sad that Arsenal (just like my Liverpool) are not doing great at the moment.. Like all long suffering fans, we'll hope for the best next season…..

Hot dougie thanks for the wishes — unfortunately rafa and co have contrived to throw away our best chance of snagging the title… Considering we "have plans" for the future ie 2023, i wouldn't quit now would i?.. lol.. I really don't know what's happening to blogger cos I still have you on the list of peeps I follow.. so i get the dashboard prompt when you update.
