Week after week, matchday after matchday - a certain correlation occurs. No matter what allegiance you bear, this pattern shows itself to everyone who call themselves fans. Is it the vitriol aimed at whoever is this weeks donkey? No. This occurs but isn't what I am highlighting.
Could it be the peals of laughter aimed squarely at Alan Pardew and the fact that he has zero talent to couple with his lack of knowledge of the game? No, but this is also commonplace and quite frankly hilarious.
The link I speak of is the constant deriding of match officials.
Match Review: Chelsea 2 Arsenal 0 - Premier League 06.10.14
It’s difficult to know exactly how to feel after that result. On the one hand, every defeat is frustrating and losing to that lot and their horrible manager is doubly annoying. But, on the other hand, we knew that anything other than a drubbing would be an improvement on the horror shows from last year. We were in the game for most of it and the second goal only came due to our pressing to find the equaliser. Our game plan and formation was right, but it was the execution that let us down.
Every now and then, you just have to accept that at the end of the day, a loss was a fair result. You have no choice but to sit back and admit that the opposing team fully deserved the three points.
Unfortunately, because we played Chelsea, I'm afraid I can't do that. I hate them. I hate them I hate them I hate them I hate them. So bloody much.
