Robert Pires for Arsenal (v Man City), 22 October 2005

*LB is weeping with uncontrollable laughter*

"I didn't expect his leg to go numb" says a bent-over-laughing Thierry Henry.

Robert Pires dances over the football, grazes it with his studs and City clear despite Thierry Henry ambling towards the penalty area....

cut to Match of the Day showing Gary Lineker's ridiculously lame penalty against Brazil to Motty yelling "He's totally fluffed it...."

At least Arsene Wenger saw it. His eyesight must be improving.

Oh how I chortled!

The fact that even Wenger himself appeared to be pissing his pants was just sheer class.

I noticed that Mr. Pires wasn't giving interviews.... I also noticed that they were clearly thinking about it for the first penalty as well, only Henry had the good sense to reckon that it was probably a bad idea at 0-0. Dear oh dear.

By the way - what was that shirt that Gary Lineker was wearing? Military chic? He could at least have got one that fitted. The smug, jug-eared, gurning fool needs to work on his presentation as well - the quality of MOTD is going right downhill. From the credits onwards.

On the subject of MOTD2, don't you get the feeling that - despite table-topping Sheff Utd - Neil Warnock is just an accident waiting to happen? And as for the Garth Crooks analysis... Do. Me. A. Favour.
