I’m watching Live Football on the BBC website, alternately pulling out my hair and breathing sighs of relief as Arsenal throw away three leads against Newcastle, then steal the lead a fourth time.
So the score is sitting at 4-3, when this Tweet comes in on the BBC scrolling updates:
SpartanDetritus on Twitter: “Newcastle may have conceded eight goals in a few days but we certainly haven’t been embarrassed in two difficult away games against Man Utd and Arsenal.”
About 2 seconds later the score goes to 5-3, and three minutes after that 6-3. Finally, 7-3 in the 90th minute (Theo Walcott hat-trick).
I think SpartanDetritus (aka Jonny) may have spoken a little too soon!
