Poor Valedictory Behrami has bared his soul and admitted to the extreme stress our poor players have been enduring since the start of last season. It is so tough being at or near the bottom of the Prem. Is it any wonder that the players crack, that when things start to go wrong, fear takes over and they go missing, or in Valedictory's words, they are "not there"? It's a bloody good job our troops in Afghanistan are made of tougher material isn't it? Who would you rather face, Carroll, Nolan and Barton or the bloody Taliban?
Mind you, Behrami is upbeat about our upcoming game against Arsenal because, according to our Swiss Cuckoo Clock, we have done well against the Gunners over the past couple of years. Have we? Well, we have lost our last two games against them, and haven't won against the Wenger Boys for seven games now, losing five!
Still, poor Valedictory is shell shocked and suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder so it is no wonder the guy has gone a little Lady Gaga I suppose!
