Sharkface … Lamela’s Tango … Wenger’s Unfortunate Condition.

Sorry Harry, 
hatricks in Europe just don't make the headlines these days.

Sharkface … Lamela’s Tango … Wenger’s Unfortunate Condition.
.
Pablo Picasso ( would have been 153 years old  today ) never played football but he would have appreciated the outrageous artistry of a certain Argentinian maestro at White Hart Lane on Thursday night.
.
Genius comes in many forms and Pablo certainly exhibited that in a prolific output over his 91 years. Still but a tender 22 years Eric Lamela is by no means prolific yet. However courtesy of the Internet his rabonesque strike on Thursday means he is fast closing on Pablo regards the planet Earth  recognition stakes.
.
Eric was obviously brought up on the tango of which a recognized dance step is the rabona. Courtesy of the Net we see him scoring against River Plate as a teenager. Voila he treats the world to that tangoesque strike again last Thursday.
.
Maybe his instinctive decision to tango rather than use his non preferred right foot had something to do with his relaxed and confident state of mind. After all besides his Argentinian manager there were a total of seven Argentinians in the Asteras Tripolis outfit.
.
From his very first You Tube dance video we have taken to the lad. In part the leaving of Berbatov,  Modric and then our beloved Bale meant  who was going to provide that certain magic worth the admission price alone.
.
Lamela has yet to consistently blossom , a first season to forget, but the dance band is gathering momentum. He certainly provided one of those special and memorable moments.
.
“ I was at the Lane when Eric Lamela scored a Rabona.” 
.
Mind it seems that one of the game’s most respected managers had not heard about it.
.
The Selective and Blinkered Vision that is Arsene Wenger. 
.
 At his Friday press conference Arsene was asked for his comment on the goal that anyone that had a computer, mobile phone, radio, television, could not but have come across.
.
'No. Sorry' said Arsene he had been watching another game at the time . So what. Surely a man professing to be up with most things football might just have seen a news snatch on multi media. Unless you resided in a cave deep in the Amazonian jungle then there was no missing it.
.
Seems the antipathy that our French rival holds towards most things Spurs is still very much alive and dancing.
.
Sharkface.
.
Football fans can be mischievous when allocating nicknames towards rival teams managers.
.
I am sure the good natured  naming of Brendan Rogers by Spurs fans is perhaps of mixed origin. Those recent comprehensive defeats have not endeared Brendan to North London
.
Mind his protestation that Liverpool will not do a “Spurs” after selling Luis Suarez are looking increasingly wobbly. Surely you sell a Bale and a Suarez then replacement and back to where you were does not occur overnight.
.
 Brendan has steadfastly refused to acknowledge the degree of difficulty. “ We’ll not do a Spurs.”
.
Seems a certain Italian Mario is exacerbating the apparently well laid Rogers plans. Certainly losing no sleep over  the potential sharks circling if Brendan stuffs up …
.
At A Kent Pub.
.
Surely no Europa hangover against Newcastle on Sunday. Given his substitution against the Greeks then Lamela to start. Harry Kane probably not. Still whilst our Pub are not yet convinced he is certainly improving.
.
 Hard taskmasters here at the home of fine English ale.  He has certainly pulled a long way ahead of another touted forward. Mrs Townsend must have the maternal stoicism of Job. Andros may yet make it but not sure it will be in football.
.
Don’t much mind Newcastle save and except for a certain arrogant Dutchman. Tim Krul’s antics at the World Cup coming on top of his amazing display against us last season cement his place in our Pub’s Hall of Dislike.
.
Still expect our men to prevail.
.
Cheers … perhaps no rabona .. but a tap in from Eric would suffice … Greg  Meyer.    coys.
.
 Jimmy's Video Spot.
What else? Adebayor grafts away and causes a defender to set up Erik for the coup de grace rabona style. That's final blow not cut the grass. Mauricio pretends he's not impressed and intends to fine him at this point, but lets him off with a warning as his second goal wasn't bad.

 Welcome home EL. Kisses the badge too. Odds on to be at Real next season.

WENGER!!!! Huh dont make me laugh, he showed just what a narrow minded idiot he really is. We're talking about a young lad in his twenties, you think he could've said something nice about him like most of all the other managers including Harry who's has been on a bit of a spurs downer since his departure. I suppose if it had been wilshere, ozil or welbeck--haha as they he could-- he would be singing their praises just like when Bergkamp was still playing. Arsene!! Get some respect by not being so blind to certain things and stop being so negative about anything not Arsenal.
