The weekly Roundup: Wenger p*ssed off, Scholes mystery finally solved & West Ham’s celebrity fat club

A roundup of the week’s events in the world of football: The good, The bad & The Ugly

The Good

Photo of the week – ‘Balotelli as cool as a cucumber’ Put a bit of grass, a string vest or set of rules infront of him and Balotelli’s in a pickle but offer him a scrap and he relishes in it.

Arsene vs Kenny – Can you blame Wenger Kenny, he was p*ssed off! (cheesy caption, I know).

Jose Mourinho may have just about found his match. The Spanish Press. *Must Watch*

The Bad

Benni McCarthy’s came in for a lot of stick this week after the striker was released by West Ham. Karren Brady branded him a ‘big fat mistake’ and Avram Grant joked about the club not being a Weight Watchers ….which only proved that with all the money between Brady and Grant neither appear to own a mirror. ….. Even  though they do have a point…..

Fernando Torres’ offside goal vs. West Brom (can be seen here). I’m predicting that Torres scores in the final game of the season and is injured celebrating emphatically with the luck he’s had.

ITV’s cameramen – You could be forgiven for thinking that you were watching a doc about Wayne Rooney on Saturday, as in the first twenty minutes of the FA Cup semi final ITV’s cameraman got more shots of him than any striker had in 90minutes. We saw everything. From the frontman’s attempts to gain wings (as he sipped Redbull) to his silly decision to dress himself. But unfortunately for the FA (who probably had their bank account details ready) Rooney served ensured that he ‘d washed his mouth out with soap beforehand.

& the ugly (or The mugs that cost their team)

Ever so often the red mist comes down and the Paul Scholes sees red, why? Because it’s his favourite colour of course. At least that’s the only feasible explanation into why after years of playing, criticism and access to the best coaches the United midfielder still gets done for the same offence. So yep, ‘the favourite colour’ theory has got to be it!

Gomes on holding practice                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         

After appearing to have successfully undergone rehab Heurelho Gomes’ recovery hit a stumbling block on Tuesday, as the keeper officially relapsed.


On the subject of relapses Spurs’ north London rivals proved that anything they could do, the gunners could go do better and Emmanuel Eboue took it upon himself to emphasize that point. As I’ve said so many times NOBODY in world football lose in the fashion that Arsenal do.
