Pickled / World champion / Pundits

Yesterday was great! And of course we had to make the most of it....may never happen again. I can't really remember getting home.....but was late for work this morning. Spain were good value I thought, Holland were fortunate to get away with some rough tackles, Van Bommel got away (as he did in the semi) with murder. I hear our pundits on the BBC were very critical, naming thuggery, and calling the tactics brutal, violent and sickening. What? Hang on.....sorry to mix my goonerism on this Real Murcia blog, but.....aren't these the same pundits who were sorry for Ryan Shawcross when he snapped Aaron Ramsay's leg in half? The same twits who kiss Sam Allardyce and Tony Pulis's asses when their teams use the same tactic and rough Arsenal up? The same blokes who say Arsenal need to toughen up and grow some balls after being kicked to pieces.....??

Photos : Bottom, a star over the crest.....whatever happens nobody can ever ever take that away. Top, good hard play or a disgrace, depends who is being fouled.


  1. It wasnt shawcrosses fault, 50.50

  2. Yes it was 50/ can't argue it wasn't excessive. He snapped the guys leg in two! My argument is that the pundits can't have such a distict criteria.....roughing up Spain is unacceptable, yet it just part of the game if it's against the whingeing Wenger's team. Totally inconsistent.
