Nothing to do with books, Dales, teaching etc but I so enjoyed Man Utd’s 8-2 obliteration of Arsenal at the weekend that I have celebrated by providing you here with the full joy of Gazzetto Dello Sport’s report on the match, translated from the Italian by Microsoft Bing. The ending is particularly good:
Disaster Gunners — After the collapse of Tottenham, the second half of London committed today meets the same fate: Arsenal makes the end of the “hated” Spurs and was soundly defeated at Old Trafford. Embarrassing the difference in values in the field: the recent sell-offs and many absences among Gunners (Sagna, Vermaelen, Squillaci, Song, Bendtner, Gibbs and Gervinho, just to name a few) require Wenger to field a defense Jenkinson-Djourou-Koscielny-Traore impractical at this level, as well as Coquelin in the middle of the field. United also has on the pitch his young, but these elements already tried value as Evans and Jones instead of Central Ferdinand and Vidic, or as Bennett and Welbeck. The 20-year-old striker is the man who opened the scoring after 22 ‘: Anderson serves the area with a LOB and he shoves his sixth consecutive goals to head of Premier League matches. Unfortunately, a muscle trouble forced him to leave the field a little later, replaced by the returning “Chicharo” Hernandez.
