Good morning Grovelings!
If Thursday is the new Friday, why do I not have that Friday feeling?
Maybe its because I am a little despondent about England? Or maybe I don’t care about that because Steve McClaren is so under qualified as an England Manager its embarrassing. As embarrassing as his woeful comb over… give it up Steve, we can see you’ve lost your hair!
Anyway, we have more important things to worry about than Steve McClarens comb over.
First big worry of the day.
First big Phil busts his back, and now it looks like RVP has ruined his knee in Holland’s game last night. I don’t need to tell you what a blow this will be for us going into the Christmas period. Its especially upsetting considering how important his goals have been of late.
Here’s hoping he was just faking so he could preserve himself for Bolton at the weekend.
Jens Lehmann is at it again in the press. It seems to be all “me, me, me” from him of late. Today he tells us how perfect he is. Laughable or what? He must have forgotten they have camera’s at all the games these days. Jens is clearly looking to make a career in stand up after he hangs up his gloves. Muppet.
PHW confirms that he has spoke to Lady Nina of the Gunners and she won’t be selling up any time soon,
‘I can only tell you what she has told me – that she has no intention of selling her stake, and that she is in it for the long term’
Good news you have to say! PHW also puts Wenger forward as a possible Chairman. How about Jens Lehmann? He is an all round talent apparently?
The Mirror have a story about Vela coming back in January. They seem to run this story all the time? I can’t see it myself. He might be a good player, but whose position would he take? We seem a touch oversubscribed in the striker department at the moment, with King Ade not going to the ACN, and Bendtner having Maradona like qualities I think his chances would be limited.
In transfer news, the Italian press are linking us with a Czech striker called Martin Fennin. Apparently he had a storming under-20 Championships. Liverpool are also hot on his trail. Check out his goal against Argentina here. What a goal!
If you are really bored today, here is a run down of the players away on international duty.
Its AGM time today, so hopefully we’ll have some good news to report on tomorrow! I was offered a ticket by blogger Geoff, but work commitments prevented my attendance. Its a bit of a shame, I wanted to show Usmanov my new picture! Maybe next year…
See you in the comments section!
Update: Arsenal enter into new lockdown agreement.
