1. Consider all things equal, championship is decided by a sprinkle of brilliance and Rooney’s goal might be such an example. At least, it kills City’s hope for the title. Now, it becomes a two-horse race, or, I should say, a horse and a donkey race.
2. The donkey will face Barca tomorrow in the Champions league. This is the battle between Barca and flawed Barca. Please have mercy on us. The donkey might exploit the absence of Puyol, though, as Gijon did last week. And, please, don’t play Nasri yet as it is much more important to have him healthy for the rest of the season. More importantly, Van Persie’s time of return to form could not be any better.
(At least, we have one player who is convinced that we can beat Barca. Well, Bendtner even thinks that he is one of the top strikers in the world.)
3. Barca players are really annoying, by the way. It seems to me that they deliberately take turn every week to comment about Cesc. Not that he won’t be going to Barca after this season anyway. But, could you please at least make this process graceful?
(In my imagination, they play pokers every Thursday and whoever loses will be the one to comment about Cesc. Next season’s Arsenal midfield: Song, Frimpong, and Wilshere!)
