WATT TF? Name confusion earns ex-Gunner phantom red card

30

Ex-Arsenal player Sanchez Watt had a red card reversed during last night’s match between Hemel Hempstead and East Thurrock after it was explained to the referee that the striker was saying his name rather than being belligerent.

In the process of being booked by official Dean Hulme during the National League South fixture, Watt, who was on the books at the Emirates until 2013, was asked for his name.

It’s reported that the ex-Gunner replied, “Watt, Watt,” only for the referee to assume he was saying, “What? What?”

Having been booked already, he was shown a second yellow for dissent.

Luckily for Watt, Hemel Hempstead captain Jordan Parkes was quick to explain the situation to Hulme who then allowed the player to stay on the pitch. The attacker had earlier scored for his new side as they ran out 2-0 winners.

Watt, now 27, scored on his professional debut for the Gunners in a 2-0 League Cup victory over West Bromwich Albion in 2009. At the time the terraces rocked to the chant, “You Watt, You Watt…You Watt, You Watt, You Watt.”

Peak banter.

It wouldn’t happen these days because few people actually go to the Emirates anymore. Those that do spend the entire time trying not to slip on the tears of small children whose collective hearts have been broken by how wretched we are.

In other words, Wenger used to win trophies, now he just makes small children cry over how broken and wretched we are.

Not very reassuring to hear Wenger say we need to rely on youth to get back to the top, when many of our former youth “stars” play for clubs most people haven’t heard of.

We live in Staffs and my 10-year-old son came home last night complaining of being ripped at school by Stoke fans, fucking Stoke fans taking this piss that we can’t even beat Brighton.

Thanks Arsenal – sort it out for fucks sake.

I remember him turning up for my local team in Kerala (India) for the Indian league. He wasn’t bad to be fair, but for a player who has played for Arsenal, he did not exactly set the league on fire, and we all know how bad Indian football is.

Wish him better luck than what happened recently!!

Could have been worse. Had it been Andrea Marriner, he might have confused him for Hoo. Or Howe…

There’s a very famous American comedy routine, by Abbot and Costello, called “Who’s on first?” about a baseball team whose first baseman is called “Who,” and whose other players have names like “What” and “I Don’t Know.”

The phrase “who’s on first” has entered American speech to describe a situation where no one knows what is going on.

Here’s an excerpt:
Costello: When you pay off the first baseman every month, who gets the money?

Abbott: Every dollar of it. And why not, the man’s entitled to it.

Costello: Who is?

Abbott: Yes.

Costello: So who gets it?

Abbott: Why shouldn’t he? Sometimes his wife comes down and collects it.

Costello: Who’s wife?

Abbott: Yes. After all, the man earns it.

Costello: Who does?

Abbott: Absolutely.
