Hump day is here and like clockwork, so is Andrew. What are the Wonderkids up to this week?
Hello and welcome back to the latest from The Wonderkids. If you missed the start of season seven you can catch up here. We left you last having made our best start to a Premier Division season but lost the Charity Shield ending the chance of a repeat sweep. Here’s a reminder of the table:
It’s back to Champions League football, no OG’s only OB’s and despite our best efforts, we win.
Things rarely get beto when things like this happen…
Ferguson is sacked, Germany offer us the job, but it’s a no from me. Maybe Robson will take it?
We extend our lead at the top, but this game was a lot closer than it looks. We squeeze past Norwich in the League Cup but such a pointless game comes at such a high price.
Well…that came out of nowhere:
Dang indeed. We follow up in Europe with another poor result.
Rose will be out for a few months. It’s a shame but he hasn’t scored in a while and his form is waning. A chance for someone to step up. Liverpool make a striking appointment.
We Bengt his ear before the game but he wouldn’t take a bribe and now Joke Innear has one over us.
Roll gets crocked on international duty and we’re another man down. Thankfully, we pull ourselves together for the big derby.
That said, it wasn’t convincing. The cracks start to split as we’re sliced apart at the slicer in the Champions League.
Which means it will come down to the final game, and we’ll need a draw. Losing could see us not even have a runners up chance!
Respite as we beat our stalkers.
And things feel like they could be turning around as we well and truly win the World Club Cup!
They just lacked any Pays to get beyond us. Back to the UK and I couldn’t have been more wrong. Another cup bites the dust…
A resurgent Newcastle smell blood, Almeida smells it too and with one rash tackle, he’s off.
I’m worried by making some signings we’ve disrupted the squad, and add to that a number are unhappy from a lack of game time. We’re still 6 points clear, but something just doesn’t feel right.
Keegan gets a serious upgrade. Not that I would leave, but I’m kind of put out that we didn’t get offered this or the England job. But before that we arrived in Denmark to do a job…
…we dictate the tembo…ahem…and it should have been more, Rose is back!
He continues his sweet form at the slicer. However, princess made it difficult by getting sent off within 2 minutes of being introduced.
Internationally, there two have been constantly on fire, as opposed to blowing hot and cold for us.
We close out this update against our latest rivals, West Ham. And as chance would have it, another game we have to close out with 10-men. It doesn’t take a lot to make him Wijnhard but off he goes…
And he’ll be out until the run-in.
We’re still cruising at the top of the table, we’re still in the Champions League but it’s really disappointing to be losing out on two possible trophies already. Bryan Lolson has pulled Man Utd up to the heights of 17th, so it could be worse. And the B-Kids are 19th and looking like going down.
10 points clear at Christmas…it’s just as well we’re not Kevin Keegan. That said we do lean on the side of attack over defence so there are similarities between the Wonderkids and the Entertainers. Hopefully we can keep the wheels going. Please stay with us so we can hopefully continue to gloat in the faces of Bryan Lolson and Joke Innear…hopefully.
