That Lam Chop was Delightful

That Lam Chop was Delightful

My life is currently like an attempt on goal from Frank Lampard; it lacks any real direction. The wife tries to fill her void with a part time job in a psychiatric hospital; it`s great that they can relate to someone on their own level.

There was a heated discussion at the wife`s workplace on the relative merits of Steven Gerrard MBE and Frank Lampard BFG. Opinion was split right down the middle; the staff sided with Stevie, the patients plumped for Frank.

The great thing about a debate of this nature is the fact that there is no wrong answer; apart from 'Lampard`. The argument has momentarily been settled by a freak injury, although that`s a little bit harsh on Wayne Rooney. Nobody can argue against a punt on Chelsea at 1/3 to take care of Watford.

You don`t become a bad player overnight; it took Robbie Savage almost two years. I`m taking the 9/2 for a Shevchenko opener.

Historical stats are like Helen Chamberlain, they`re often reeled out but they serve no useful purpose. Middlesbrough have lost on their last four visits to West Ham, but I wouldn`t put anyone off a draw at 23/10.

The last time the Gunners visited Anfield, the Arsenal kids ran amok so uncontrollably, the local council considered issuing ASBOs. The Gunners look a great investment at 23/10 to leave Liverpool victorious for a third time.

Julio Baptista has had his knockers this season, but he always turns it on against the Reds. I like big Baps; he can open the scoring at 8/1.

I was shocked to read that Sir Alex Ferguson fired a flurry of insulting expletives towards the jovial Geoff Shreeves. The roving reporter was considering suing for slander, but Fergie`s 'I thought it was Tim Lovejoy` defence is watertight. I`m convinced that the 1/3 for a United win over Blackburn is also rock solid.

Bolton will be without Ivan Campo for the visit of the Blades as a routine haircut has ran into major complications. Big Sam`s men will mow down Sheffield United at 4/6.

I`m quite a spiritual being; in fact I have the ability to heal. I once roused a young lady from a drunken stupor merely by the laying of hands. She`s now completely teetotal.

Alan Pardew has breathed new life into the previously moribund Charlton; Wigan are going down in the Valley at 6/5.

Chris Coleman deserves a pat on the back. It`s easier to take something away from Tony Martin`s cottage than it is from Fulham`s. The Coleman`s mustard, they`ll see off Pompey at 5/4.

Spurs fans are still reeling from a disappointing result against the champions. Everyone knows you should throw the jab before considering a haymaker. I`m getting stuck into the 4/5 for a Tottenham win over Reading.

The ice on which Stuart Pearce`s position sits is so thin; ecological organisations have pleaded with Frank Lampard to steer clear. Manchester City won`t enjoy their trip to Newcastle, it`s far too close to Scotland. City have lost at St James` Park on their last five visits, another Newcastle win at 21/20 will put the icing on Psycho`s cake of sorrow.

My search for a more fulfilling existence has led me to consider embracing an alternative religion. I`ll speak to Geoff Shreeves; Sir Alex mentioned something about a cult. I`m praying that the Villa beat Everton at 7/5.

This week`s accer is so eye-opening, I`ve finally realised that the secret to happiness was right in front of me all along; I live across the road from an off-license. Charlton, Newcastle, Tottenham and Aston Villa are the selections, the 17/1 payout will cover the cost of a crate of enlightenment.

However, not much of a betting man but maybe Rovers are worth a few quid?!?!
