Monday Musings: Robben, Wally Dyche & Subway

Monday Musings: Robben, Wally Dyche & Subway
Already, it`s been a season of amazing discoveries. Not only have we discovered Paul Robinson`s Pirlo-esque qualities, we`ve also seen David Davis` Robben-type tendencies. That`s right. If you didn`t already know, Gary Rowett won the eBay auction for Lee Clark`s bingo machine.

You know the one I mean… the famous machine that selected players at random. Clark only sold it after he realised it wasn`t working… it started picking players in their natural positions which took all the fun out of it. It`s the best fiver that Rowett has spent all summer. He now realises that Robbo is a natural born box-to-box midfielder, the best one we have had since Olly Lee.

Speaking of Olly, it rhymes with Wally and that`s what Sean Dyche sounded like in his post-match interview. Saying that Burnley 'dominated the game` was laughable. Yes, they may have been hard done by after a dodgy penalty decision, but Dyche didn`t mention the questionable free-kick award that led to their equaliser. And what is domination in Dyche`s football thesaurus? It must read 'ability to pass the ball sideways and hoof it into the box`.

Blues` game at Brentford has been called off because they are relaying their pitch at Griffin Park. In August… After the season has started... Ridiculous. Almost as ridiculous as Blues releasing a kit in mid-September. But stress not… Blues` extra three play-off games will make up for the lateness of the new strip being released, that`ll give us a while longer to wear it so it isn`t a complete write-off.

After the Bristol Rovers cup game, I was relieved to see Blues go into the hat for the second round draw. What an anti-climax Gillingham at home is. I look forward to the electric atmosphere of 5,266 at St. Andrew`s including a massive contingent of 12 Gills fans.

Anyway, it`s been short but sweet. I`m off to buy my MK Dons tickets! I look forward to that. Dons are the biggest franchise since Subway - except the food at Stadium MK must be better, surely.

Dyche later said on the Burnley website that both Birmingham GOALS should not have been allowed he clamed Donaldson pushed his Defender to win the ball in the build up to Toral 's GOAL . Its is a ridicules comment .

He's always going to be biased, some managers are like that.
