As this post flies out, I’ll be heading out to Puerto Banus to drink beer and play golf for the weekend.
Gutted if you’re stuck in an office. You deserve it.
Just kidding of course!
I read that Blackburn’s Phil Jones has been making eyes at us. In typical love struck teen fashion he said,
“I think Arsenal play the prettiest football in the Premier League.”
You little slut…
I told you last year that Arsenal were monitoring his progress as well as a host of other defenders. If we’re looking to add an additional body to our back 4 roster, I’d be fine with us adding a player being mooted as the next John Terry… lock up your wife Eboue!
He’s a powerful centre half who has been trained in the art of filth by experts such as Sam Allardyce and Mark Hughes. He’s good in the air despite being under 6ft and he’s probably been wet willied by Chris Samba more times than I care to mention… things like that only make you appreciate the South more. I’m sure he’d have no qualms fighting it out for a place in our back 4. I’d still prefer someone taller, but whatever, as long as they are more able than Squillaci, I’m fine…
Bacary Sagna has pledged his allegiance to Arsenal nice and early this year. I’m not quite sure why some clubs are consistently linked with our players, but Roma seem to be the fantasy destination of Sagna. A bit like Juve for Clichy and Bayern for Bendtner. Anyway… the right back has been fantastic for us this year and I’m chuffed he’s staying on. He’s a regular for France and it’s been a joy to watch him return to 2008 form.
Did you hear what Emmanuel Frimpong said? It was ever so sweet…
‘I was worried I’d be left behind’
Ahhhh, bless… I think someone needs to have a word in his ear. No Arsenal youth players are EVER left behind, even if they’re crap (Even Mark Randall is contracted). I hope that’s what pulled him through his injury… just a little glance over at his Denilson poster,
‘If you can play 150 games for Arsenal, anyone can.’
I read that Madrid are going to prepare a bid for Cesc this summer. Now, this is something we told you last year as well. Rumour has it that Madrid called Ivan G and said whatever Barcelona offer, we’ll offer more. Arsene Wenger is of the stand point that if Barca don’t offer his valuation, he won’t be sold. If Cesc continues to stamp his feet, he’ll be put out to auction. Regardless of what people say, that boy isn’t going for anything less than a whopping fee. Wenger has a taste for the big money… you don’t sell your two wheeled tricycle for £42,000 (Adebayor) and then cut a deal on your Aston Martin for £800 because your skint neighbor likes the look of it.
If watching United cruise into the Champions League final wasn’t vomit inducing enough, news that once again, a governing body is taking tax money away from the UK coffers surely would tip you over the edge. According to Dunham Consultancy UEFA won’t pay any tax in the UK despite the final being held at Wembley. So what exactly is in it for the British fans? We’re financially hammered buying the tickets, our transport is screwed for an evening, we pay for the clean up operation, we pay to police it and all for what?
A few chip shops doing a roaring trade… nice.
When are the people going to start standing up to these practices? What did South Africa gain out of one of the most profitable World Cups in history? What are the British people going to gain out of a tax-free Olympics next year? So far, all I can tell you is that my trains are ruined nearly every weekend… and guess what, I’ll be paying tax on the games until I die…. and guess what else? I think athletics is for girls…
I wouldn’t mind if I thought the money was going towards making people’s lives better, as far as I can see, all it goes on is dodgy deals and jobs for the boys. It’s criminal what people will turn a blind eye to for a big event…
I’m not leaving you on a sad note, not on a Friday… so how about a bit more from the people trying to sell you the dri-fit dream?
Finally, check out the video and the official press release on our tumblr account.
Right, I believe that’s it!
Have a great Friday and remember, if Chirs Samba knocks on your door, run upstairs and hide in your room… he’ll leave eventually.
