    Re: Lucas – I can honestly say he’s won me over. He’s still frustrating sometimes when he gets caught in possession of plays too many sideways passes but he does work fucking hard.

    This is what’s made our season so frustrating – the lads are committed and hard-working but they’re getting very little reward for it. Reina, Lucas, Torres, Benayoun – they’re all saying the right things and they’re being sincere when they say them but our luck is shite at the moment. Yes, Rafa has made errors but we should be out of this fucking hole by now. Ngog even resorted to cheating for fuck’s sake.

    On a more positive note, Original Ronaldo is my favourite player of all time. He’s the one I pretended to be in the playground. So the fat bastard is welcome to share my wife. When I find one. Oh, and C-Ron isn’t fit to carry the Ronaldo name. The Prick.
