Blessing In Disguise?By: Robert Reed | January 30th, 2013
A bloody good disguise, granted.
Depending on how you look at it we’ve been very lucky or very unlucky. We have not lost ground on Chelsea and have not had Arsenal close the gap, but at the same time we have let Everton close the gap to within a point.
On the other hand, you might say luck has nothing to do with it; that we played like a shower of sh..sugarlumps and on the evidence of our last two games will be finishing outside the top four.
One thing is for sure, this is a match that on paper we should have won
Trying hard to look on the bright side; this result and the fact Togo won their tie and are staying in the African Cup Of Nations could, just, be that blessing in disguise.
That’s one goal in nine games for Defoe, and Adebayor isn’t coming home just yet. Even Levy must be sitting there saying to himself, ‘hmm, I think we need another striker.’
Get on that phone Daniel!
