To Hull and Back
March 12, 2010
Let’s not delude ourselves into buying the media hype behind our next Premiership encounter up norf!
Hull City are a thoroughly woeful football team, managed by a thoroughly deplorable orange chap.
They were demolished by a good Everton side last weekend, and prior to that they got taken apart by a very average West Ham.
Granted, they are unbeaten at home this year, but they are yet to face a team as talented and as buoyant as the Arsenal XI which will take the field of play tomorrow evening.
When the Premiership’s highest goalscorers take on the Premiership’s second worst defence… one-way traffic will ensue.
Much has been made, and will continue to be made, vis-a-vis the fallout at the Emirates last season between orange man and Cesc.
It’s all about stirring up nonsense in the hope Arsenal get rattled on their journey to another impoverished northern hole.
The Premiership is well within our grasp, let’s hit them for a quick and easy four and add another valuable three points to our Premiership tally for the season… then roll home back to London cock-a-hoop.
Cesc and Song will be missing from our midfield trio, this won’t be an issue.
Diaby will be the key man for us, his powerful style of running with the ball should open up space for the likes of Arshavin to exploit.
Could the Happy Hammers nick a point at the Bridge?
They have picked up only 2 points away from home over their last 6 games, however, a mighty task awaits Chelski on Tuesday night… Jose is back on town.
Minds could be elsewhere, the WHU players will certainly be focused on the job in hand.
The impending return of Mourinho to the Bridge, could be just the catalyst to take the prize of the Premiership firmly off the agenda for a few days.
Another fascinating weekend of association football awaits us!
