Good morning Grovers, I’m going to cover a few topics today… Crime, the NHS… then a spattering of footballing thoughts.
First things first… Arsenal could be in trouble defensively.
R v Turner (1975) 61 Cr.App.R. 67
The Sentencing Guidelines Council is currently considering advice of the Sentencing Advisory Panel on this subject and is likely to issue a draft guideline during 2005.
Legislation: s.8, Theft Act 1968
Maximum penalty: Life imprisonment
That doesn’t make pretty reading from where I’m sitting… nor does this picture taken before the £40million jewel heist in London this week.
I’ll leave this one with the authorities… JD, I’m a little disappointed, especially as it looks like you’ve carried out the crime with Gary Neville…
Next up… I’ve been listening to the fall out in the US about Obama’s proposed healthcare reforms. Sarah Palin dubbed the NHS ‘evil’… Now I’m struggling to see how comparatively, a free health service can be classed as evil… yet the American system, of which 27% of people under the age of 65 have no access due to being priced out of health insurance… is some how ok?
Sarah, there is no doubting that I spent many special nights in with you over the election period… but I find it staggering that a great nation like a America can take someone as retarded as you seriously. Anyone who believes Africa is a country should be discarded from Politics immediately and sent to work the glamour modelling circuit over here.
I have a relative who has just had their life saved by the quick thinking of the staff at the NHS… and I’m backing them 100%, they do a superb job and we should be grateful of the hard work their staff put in everyday. If you ever wanted evidence that politicians are controlled by big business… just keep an eye on the propaganda coming out against the proposals… it’s so transparent it’s embarrassing.
So… onto today… and Arsene Wenger has finally manned up and stuck it to Barcelona,
‘I have made a bid for Messi and nobody speaks about it’
Well Arsene, I’ve just spoken about it… the bid was rumoured to be £125million. I’m proud of you boss, even if they rejected the offer. Geoff has always suggested we should do that when Barca come knocking for our players…
‘Yeah sure you can have our best player, but we’d like yours in return please’
It’s how we should roll. On the subject of Cesc, the coach has this to say,
“Cesc is committed to the Club,”
“He has told me that and told that to the press. We cannot master the noises coming out of Spain.
“They have the same problems in the newspapers looking for headlines. When they have no ideas anymore, they come out with a Fabregas story.
“He has corrected those stories. It is not him who encourages the idea. It is the press who encourages the idea. Where does that story come from? Does that come from Fabregas two days ago? It comes from Spain.’
So, that’s that… Cesc is staying. Hooray… we love you Cesc.
Wenger is also taking a sensible approach to Jack Wilshere. Whilst admitting that he will be involved this season, he wont be involved heavily due to his age. That is fair… he’ll be a great impact sub and a good back up player if injuries get on top of us. We wouldn’t want him burning out early now would we?
So today, it’s the first game back of the season and I’m on my second set of pants already due to the excitement… the sun will be shining over the dump hole that is Liverpool and I’m very confident our boys are going to dish up a beating to the boys in blue (Everton, not the police). We need to make sure we impose our game on them from the off and we need to make sure we have a sense of urgency right the way through the game. Here is how I think we will line up:
Sagna Gallas Vermaelen Clichy
Eboue Denilson Cesc Arshavin
Here is how I’d like us to line up (How do you make a 4-3-3 look right on the screen?):
Sagna Gallas Vermaelen Clichy
Merida Cesc Denilson
RvP Eduardo Arsh
I’m going for a 2-0 comfortable victory! Come on you Gooners!
Geoff will be back with his normal previews next week and I will return to my match reporting duties! See you tomorrow Grovers, I’ll have you a super exciting victory report waiting for you at 0900.
P.S. If I see any name calling or petulance on the site today, you’ll get pulled secret police style and banned for a day… we leave all that nonsense for the other blogs.
