Hard Toffee

It would appear that Arsene Wenger doesn't read my blog.

Arse Out - Thursday, 8 March 2007

"Notice a pattern? We are all too often outplaying the opposition for huge swathes of the match, without actually putting the ball in the net, then getting hit on the break with ~5 minutes to go and not having enough time to respond."

Everton 1-0 Arsenal - Sunday, 18 March 2007

Andrew Johnson's stoppage-time goal maintained Everton's European push. Johnson had worked hard throughout the game without really having a chance to speak of before he crashed a shot past Jens Lehmann following a corner [in the 91st minute]."


Still, at least Liverpool drew with Villa so we are still in 3rd place (with a game in hand). Actually, I've just noticed that Everton have moved above Spurs in the race for UEFA Cup places, so I suppose it's not all bad :)


  1. Last year the contest was between 2nd and 3rd, this year its between 3rd and 4th.

    I'm trying to remember when exactly the premiership title wasn't a shoe-in by Easter. 02/03?

    Even the Cup Finals seem destined to be contested by just the big four this season.

    How very dull. (Watch it be a Blackburn/Watford Cup Final now, with PSV and Roma in the CL Final.....)

  2. It could yet be your lot against the Scummers in both FA Cup and Champions League (and I guess the Premiership too but they don't look much like slipping up, albeit with the 6-pointer between you two having been artfully moved to the end of the season...)

    Roll on next year :(
