This is a rare post for RoM, as it has absolutely nothing to do with Manchester United. But there are some things that you just can’t ignore, and that slimy little prick Cesc Fabregas’ comments which appeared in this morning’s paper fit in to that category.
Ahead of the North London derby, Arsene Wenger had a sympathetic reaction to the current situation at Tottenham Hotspur. They’ve had a woeful start to the start to the season, leading to the sacking of Juande Ramos, which Wenger believed was premature.
However, Fabregas was less kind, claiming that given Spurs’ predicament at the moment, even the Arsenal Ladies’ side could get a result against them.
“They would do really well,” he said. “I’m sure they would get a point!”
Well, Fabregas, you cocky cunt, don’t you feel like a dick now? At 4-2 up, the Arsenal fans will have been rubbing it in, adding insult to injury. They should have been given a wake up call in the 89th minute when Jermaine Jenas made it 4-3, but they weren’t, as a couple of minutes in to injury time Aaron Lennon scored the equaliser for Spurs.
As the crowds poured out of Old Trafford this evening, following our 2-0 win over West Ham, there had been grumbles over hearing the Liverpool and Chelsea results, a cheer for City’s result, and a laughter filled roar for Arsenal’s.
Arsenal Ladies indeed!
