No, don’t get mad Pedro, don’t get allllll crazy. It’s Friday, chillax mate. Go get laid. Have a smoke.
I refuse. Liverpool have just snared Mario for £16m and £90k a week (rumoured). Skillful, fast, powerful and Premiership proven.
… and we’ve moved for no one.
What’s going on? If… and it’s probably not a big if… we aren’t moving for anyone, why haven’t we entertained Mario?
Sure he’s crazy. But remember there were people baulking at £43m for Suarez who regularly bites / says the Spanish N word. What happened to the Arsenal manager who regularly tamed bad boys like Bobby P, Paddy V, Hleb and Vivas. Put Mario with a manager who is not a disciplinarian and see what he can do. I don’t work well under heavy discipline, I sometimes make a scene if asked to do something mundane.
‘Pedro, photocopy this’
Action: Shirt off with printed vest stating ‘WHY ALWAYS ME’
Pete: Fuck you Sandra, fuck you.
I hate it. Mario is free spirit. He wants to play under Wenger. Who wouldn’t, he’d let you do what the hell you like. What a great plan for a great player.
Upsetting. Almost as upsetting as the idea that someone would put a rumour out there that PSG would swap Giroud for Cavani. Sure mate, and in other news, Ian Poulter just agreed to swap me one of his classic ferraris for a delicious box of grapes. Honestly, what a story…

I mean, don’t get me wrong, Cavani rumours could be true. But I have my doubts. Both are available as PSG come to terms with what spunking £40m on Luiz does to your FFP. There’s also the story of Falcao being available on loan.
Again though, Wenger always seems to ignore the obvious. I really dont think there’s much appetite at Arsenal for a superstar striker. That holding role and a centre back is where it’ll most likely happen.
Just a word on Mackay and those text and e-mails which were quite disgusting.
Something makes me feel very uneasy about this. Sure, you can take a racist homophobes texts and e-mails, present them to the world and make them look terrible. But think a little deeper on this one. Authorities have gone through his mobile. Over 150,000 communications and slandered his name (I mean, don’t get me wrong, sounds like he’s a total pig) and it’s ended up in the Daily Mail.
Can you, honestly, in a month of Sunday’s, tell me if you let someone go through all your communications over a year, they wouldn’t find something that could ruin you?
I can’t. But that’s because I’m being honest.
So sure, we’re all cool with a racist being taken down. We’ll all sit there and lap it up, because bad people deserve to be taken down. But for me, this goes beyond merely taking down a bad man, we’ve just accepted that it’s ok for Police to rummage through your personal communications until they find something that hangs you out to dry. It’s quite spooky. It’s like the joy we all took in finding out a celebrity was taking coke, until we found out that the source of that was voicemails and that led to the media hacking dead girls mobile phones.
Make a false allegation against someone, police need to justify their actions (and let’s not fuck about, Police behaviour hardly merits the trust this power deserves), they could expose something that’s not even related (like dropping Cliff Richards in the shit before they have any evidence). I don’t like it. I don’t like how we’re lured into accepting that it’s actually ok that nothing is private.
… that takes you into dangerous places. Gleefully applauding an erosion of liberty and not thinking about the future ramifications. Because believe me, as I have experienced on Twitter, you can take anything out of context if you try hard enough.
Anyway, have a ripping Friday and pray to the footballing gods that Cavani is the second coming of… eerrrrrr… Thierry?
HAVE FUN SAY NO TO VESTS IN THE OFFICE x
P.S. My pal has an Arsenal season ticket going spare for £1400. GOOD SEAT. Take it off his hands. @James_Willson2 <Twitter
