What a waste?

Well I’ve saved my blog until today because I went to the game last night against Barcelona and what a game it was! We were outplayed from the start but you have to hand it to our lads; they did get back into it and Theo really did make the difference for us. At the end it was 10 v 10.5 men with Cesc limping around the pitch, but what an atmosphere! It was good to see Thierry back there too and he got a great ovation when he came on, then nearly broke through to score so we all started booing! He was the last man off the pitch at the end to rousing cheers and applause. A game like that makes it all worthwhile paying the season ticket fees. It’s a shame that Bendtner wasted such a good chance in the second half.

Speaking of waste… Next week I expect we will have the election to occupy the media, but I for one think that a lot of the stuff being said about government waste is valid. If the country was run as a proper business there would be far more cuts in government waste. How do they think companies like mine in the private sector survive? We cannot go out there and borrow money on the never never, the banks won’t lend anything; we have to make painful and hard decisions about people’s lives. I’m really undecided this time who to vote for; nothing inspires me about politics at the moment. Having said that I’m meeting someone today who is standing as an MP so I’d better be careful, as we may be able to help him in a business venture…
