Good morning from Le Grove. How are you on this wondrous yet damp day? Enough idle chit chat, let’s crack into the big stuff, of which there is little.
First up, a man has been charged with throwing what is beloved to be a banana at Gareth Bale. He’s also been charged with disorderly behaviour and abusive words. Now, outside the heat of the moment, how must it feel to know that not only are you about to get a criminal record for something really dim… you’re also about to lose your season ticket rights? Even for the cheap laugh, which don’t get me wrong, we all love… it’s just not worth it.
Gerard Piqué has been giving Cesc some grief in the press.
“We [Barcelona squad] talk about van Persie and Rooney. Fabregas loves to talk about Arsenal but we say they have no chance of winning the title this season!”
Well, I can’t really disagree with that. I’m not a fan of Pique, but it’s not nice to be the butt of jokes. Still, nice that Cesc is having a bad time in his new relationship and he’s default reaction is to talk about us. One day… we’ll get him back and the glory will come. Well, if we get him, a keeper, a centre back, a world class striker and a specialist DM who boasts technical proficiency and mobility and modern manager the likes the world is yet to see.
Talking of keepers, Perin’s agent has said Arsenal are interested in the 20 year old stopper. Now, as much as I’d love to see another child at the club battling through 5 years to become half decent… I’d rather not. If we are serious about signing a keeper, we need Begovic… or at worse, we could try and rekindle the career of Pepe Reina. Messing around trying to improve our squad with potential is a tried and failed way of operating.
Right, that’s all I’ve got for today. Enjoy the rugby if you’re watching it and even if you’re not English, support us, it’ll make you feel a better person.
