It’s near impossible to talk about this game without mentioning THAT goal. But I’m not going to mention THAT goal – it’s in the past, THAT goal is. We have to move on from THAT goal, or we will be forever talking about THAT goal and not talking about things that aren’t THAT goal. THAT doesn’t count, does it?!
I do hope that Joe Cole can do nothing all game, apart from inappropriately showboat and *wheeze* – apart from set up the goals, which granted is good in and of itself – and get lauded as some kind of celestial being from the pantheon of West Ham legends. I really enjoy it when the Telly people tell us how to think and manipulate their own narrative (that’s a crowbarred plug for a forthcoming post, if it wasn’t obvious). *retracts claws* Apparently, Allardyce is going to tinkle with the system. Well, if you sprinkle while you tinkle, be a sweet and wipe the team sheet.
For us Rooney’s back which is nice. The Curious Case of Wayne Rooney: A career in reverse. Shows glimpses of talent. Loses hair. Has breakthrough year scoring goals. Becomes amazing player. Joins team he supported as a bot, Everton, before retiring. IT IS NICE THOUGH! Also, Nani and TV might get a run out.
I’m really excited about this game. I’m watching it with Rob, my Liverpool supporting best friend, so will no doubt have some crap jokes at our expense to share. I bet you can’t wait.
If the potential of seeing Berba in the Sash at Old Trafford in the next round isn’t incentive enough, then I don’t know what is.
Prediction: 4 – 2
Goals: Joe Cole o.g, Rooney 2, TV.
