Matti says he’ll be fit to face Blackburn, which is a real relief as we all thought he had yet another knock, so well done the Flamster.
Hleb and his agent have come out early to say he’s staying at Arsenal, which is again welcome news and something that one or two others should think about as a stock answer when big swanky clubs come sniffing.
Toure’s on his way back after Saturdays play off, he had a stinker by all accounts, so I expect him to have a few weeks off, and the way Senderos is playing, I’m not too fussed.
Song apparently is setting the CAN alight, so maybe, just maybe, he may be worth a shot, but I haven’t seen it so I’ll reserve my judgment, but as a journo, I have to report it, so I am.
A quick note on England and the FA, they say England kit sales are down because of lack of success, bollocks, kit sales are down because they are designed by a blind Eskimo with no hands in a dark room somewhere up north, yes, you guessed an Umbro employee.
They had a real chance on Wednesday to surprise us with something tasty and they unveil something I would be loath to wipe my arse on if I had the shits, for fear of upsetting my arse further.
You see all the kits from manufactures like Adidas, Nike and Puma and how smart they all are, then you see the Umbro kits, they are fucking shit, and trust me I design for a living, that’s the reason no one buys them, because no one would wear them.
Rocket science that was, the FA tossers strike again with their wisdom on all things commercial. Oh and Fabio doesn’t rate Cashley …that’s your life in total free fall now, you greedy little shit, ha fucking ha!
Premier league to go overseas? give me a break, they’ve been moaning for years we play too many games, now they want to expand it abroad, great for the carbon footprint that, and imagine how knackered they’ll be when they come back from Sydney.
Anyway lots to debate today so enjoy.
Eboue, so sorry I didn’t mention Eboue, but I did hear he was last seen paddling up a long river somewhere in the Congo, with a blindfold on, covered in corned beef and dripping with honey and a big sign round his neck saying all Congo rebels are gay.
If you’re from the Congo, please don’t take offence, that it unless you’re a rebel, then don’t blame me, have a pop at Eboue, if you can find him.
Have a good day Grovers, yesterday was quiet.
