I remember singing my heart out at the Millennium stadium when we tonked the ‘real’ Chelsea 2-0, by real Chelsea, I mean before they became the chavs and had footballs equivalent of liposuction and plastic surgery, in other words before they cheated by taking the crooked ones Roubles.
That was the day that Tim Lovejoy famously said ‘it’s only Ray Parlour’ seconds before he buried it the top corner, yeeeeeeaaaaah!!!
We stayed behind long after the final whistle and sang and sang and sang – we love you Freddie cos you’ve got red hair, it was the modern day equivalent of 1 nil to the Arsenal as the song you couldn’t get out of your head.
It’s also the only song that I can think of that has the word ‘love’ in it and I did promise a romantic feel to this Valentines day, I also mentioned ‘Twat’ Tim Lovejoy, but that’s all your getting on the romantic theme.
Freddie is now of course with West Ham so good luck Freddie and thanks for the memories, memories for you too my Swedish friend, as you had hair in those days.
This brings me onto another Arsenal old boy, Diarra, apparently Real Madrid are sniffing around with a big bag of cash, if Harry sells him and we don’t have a sell on clause in there, we should never again do business with Pompey.
I said it here that we should have loaned him out or put him in the stiffs, we only have ourselves to blame for that one.
The missus sent me a card saying I would sooner watch match of the day than have an evening of total sexual pleasure, well Mrs Geoff, you’re wrong …on the other hand if Arsenal were playing…
Apparently we’re being linked to Brazilian wonder kid Dentinho, I would like to think we could attract the best young talent, but I would also like us to get a talent that’s already good, like a Messi or such like, hopefully this kid is ready.
Denilson will be good one day but he’s not ready yet and we have a lot of those in our squad already.
We’re also being linked to Egyptian keeper El Hadari, but you know what, I’m happy with Almunia, I haven’t seen better than him anywhere this season, in fact I’d go as far to say I ‘love’ Almunia, there that’s now three times I’ve mentioned the ‘L’ word, and three times is enough.
Giggs is slagging us off in the press so I really hope we put a strong team out and give them some, and because we’re allowed to take a lot of fans up to Scotland, it won’t seem so much like an away game, and that could really help us.
Good day yesterday Grovers, suicide Sid apart, some interesting views out there.
Have a happy Valentines day today and don’t forget to get home to your loved ones nice and early and NO drinking, try and be considerate on this most special of days, buy her something nice, practical even, like a fluffy scarf, a red and white one.
