That was the Week that Was (Oct 16-20 2023)

Monday Oct 16:

 

I mentioned last week about the Anny Road delay and how it meant fans who had tickets couldn’t go to the Everton game and others. I think I referred to it as unfortunate situation and that there wasn’t much the club could do about it. That’s true to some extent, but I didn’t know the half of it. The email that landed in my inbox today was somewhat bizarre and points to them being caught on the hop. Offering season ticket holders who don’t want to go on Saturday “1/19th the price of their season ticket” and a tenner to spend in the club shop isn’t much of an incentive now is it?

 

If I wasn’t going, I’d be far more likely to pass it on to someone on my friends and family list than I would be to take up that offer. If they want to look after those who’ve been let down then this is not the right way to do it. Interesting that you can still buy tickets on the touting websites though. Funny that isn’t it?

 

Four thousand fans had tickets and now can’t go. It turns out that some of those are Any Rd upper tier season ticket holders who have up to now been accommodated in other areas of the ground. Because the club thought it would be open, those season ticket holders are now without a ticket. I’m not sure how that works from a legal standpoint, I’d probably be taking legal advice if I’d been shafted like that.

 

Meanwhile, no update yet on Robbo’s injury but the speculation isn’t good. The talk is that if he needs surgery he could be out for months rather than weeks. That means Kostas in the important games and probably Luke Chambers in the cups. I wanted to see Chambers get an opportunity but not like this. He’s injured too at the moment, but should be back soon.

 

There was a report today from that German journo (Faulk I think?) who is always on Twitter saying we’re keeping tabs on Musiala from Bayern. Not. A. Fucking. Chance. Stick this in the file with Mbappe and Bellingham. I’m not getting taken in this time. He’s fucking brilliant but if he leaves Bayern it won’t be to come here. We just never shop at that end of the market. We window shop and then watch as Real Madrid come along and slap their platinum credit card on the counter and say “we’ll take that”.  He’s either going to Madrid or maybe he’ll end up being De Bruyne’s successor at City.

Salah got filmed in Panny’s chippy on Breck Rd not long after he first arrived.

 

This was prescient.

 

Watch this weekend, there’s be some fucking dickhead who played down what happened to us who will be spouting off about refs and VAR because his team was on the wrong end of something. I just hope it’s Dyche, the gravelly voiced, worm eating tit.

Didn't exactly go out on a limb there though did I?
