Good morning Grovers! I hope you’re enjoying your Saturday morning. England fans will be over the moon after watching their country take out European superstars San Marino last night.
I actually had the pleasure of a ticket. I sat in Club Wembley and I’m pleased to report that the view was pretty spectacular. Getting into the ground was a ball ache, the trains are incredibly slow and the walk to stadium isn’t exactly Arsenal distance.
The game was a bit hit and miss. The way we knock the ball around is quite pedestrian. All those calling for Baines at Arsenal should have taken note of his performance last night, far from impressive.
On the Arsenal front, Theo Walcott found himself clattered in a crumpled heap early on in the match. He was stretchered off to hospital with broken ribs. The challenge from the keeper way over the top, I’ve no idea how he escaped punishment there.
On the more upbeat front, Chambo had the best game I’ve seen him partake in for a while. He knocked the ball around really well and sat at the heart of most of our good movement. Just as it was looking like he wasn’t going to make the score sheet, he slotted home into the top corner right at the end. A fine way to cap off an evening!
Getting out of Wembley, now there’s a disaster. It took an hour and a half to get back to central. All that investment and no one thought about the trains.
In Arsenal news, I can’t muster up much to talk about. Bordeaux are throwing Chamakh his 14th lifeline of the past two years. Not sure it’s going to be accepted until he’s drained every last pound from his current deal.
Outside that, we’re running on football news fumes!
Have a great day everyone!
P.S You gotta read this story to believe it. Liverpool class.
