    Oh Gawd! That was bad!! That was how Thursday probably should have gone as well, there seemed to be three of them for every one of us. The injuries are really beginning to highlight how threadbare our squad now is – was Kelly rushed back too early? What happened to the positive play-from-the-back pass-and-move side of Kenny’s first few games, is their disappearance and Carragher’s re-appearance just a coincidence? And what is the point of Joe Cole wearing football boots?!!

Down In The Vaults

New College Library
 
I did a shift at the New College Library on the Mound, somewhere down below the Reading room. The stock was squeezed into what looked and smelt like an old church vault, the insides, and particularly the wiring, looked like a WWII bunker. There was a distinct lack of room and not enough space to wheel a trolley around. The library is built into the left-most tower, so that navigating from room to room, involves going up or down floors every time. more »

    Oh God! That was painful!! Two teams playing football without a goalscorer between them and neither seemed to know what to do with the ball. Kelly was outstanding in the first half, mainly cos he was trying to do something and no-one else was, when he disappeared at half-time, I feared the worst as we were losing defenders by the minute. The lesser-spotted Wilson wouldn’t stop hoofing the ball, which wasn’t what I’d hoped for. Things were getting so bad towards the end, that I started hoping for Joe Cole to do something, but N’Gog -Gawd! Go!! Gooooo!!! The goal, when it came, was so unexpected that even on the 15th replay I still can’t quite see how it happened!!

    Suddenly, the hours I wasted on Tuesday night looking for my keys seem like a memorable alternative! Kuyt was woeful, Maxi was invisible, and how can Joe Cole still consider himself a professional footballer. Apart from buying effective replacements for those three, we really need a stand-in/replacement for Steven Gerrard, who’s obviously getting older and older, and missing more games, but we can’t keep switching from working to not-working as if someone’s taken the batteries out like this. I’m still hoping AA will come back from Juve in the summer!!
