GOOD MORNING TO YOU.
So get this from Yaya Sanogo…
“I feel the pressure, but people should not forget that, three years ago, I was living on the streets. Today, I’m playing for Arsenal.”
Living on the streets in France, now he’s a pro footballer. 3 years ago he made 3 starts for for Auxerre. Seems a bit weird he’d reside to the killer streets after a game. Who am I to argue?
I once lived on the streets. Well, when I say lived, I mean I locked myself out my house and had to sleep on my door mat. Technically, for that one night, I was living on the streets. It was tough, and now I write a blog. Increds story eh?
Arsenal are rumoured to be in for Draxler in January, to replace Ozil. Great story bro. You get right into that story, then you realise it’s from the Express who I’m pretty sure are the only paper in the UK who don’t have an inside line on anything. Even The Star have Peter Hill-Wood.
There’s very little to write about at the moment. Roy Keane has a book out which seems at first glance to be drenched in ‘me me me’… not sure I’ll be picking up that literarary masterpiece any time soon. Footballers and introspection really don’t work together. It’s a shame, but I guess the only way to make it in sport is to be self absorbed and arrogant.
Arsenal are apparently looking at Tyrone Mings this winter. I assume that’s his name and not a spiteful statement. It would follow the familiar pattern of picking up English kids, just feel it might be a bit of an agent story to get their man a better deal, after all, if you’re English and you can kick a ball in a first team, you’re entitled to a new deal.
Some jibes the other day about my suggestions in the Mail of Hangeland, Lescott and Reid. Just wanted to make the point that I wasn’t suggesting they were the best options, merely pointing out that there were very attainable options for that third choice centre back that would have been better than, you know, signing no one.
I didn’t even see that Ospina is also on the injury list. Second one since he’s been here. What a wimp. Anyway, that should make things interesting in the Champions League. Anderlecht will see the Champions League Debut of Martinez… who was absolute garbage when he played against Reading (I think it was Reading) in a cup match a few years ago! I don’t even know who our 4th choice is… we might have to Almunia a call.
‘Manuel, put that pathetic dog down and get your gloves on, we’ve got a job for you.’
Our training ground is actually a health hazard at the moment. In factories, you have a board that says how many accident free days you’ve had. You’d be resetting that quite regularly if it at Colney.
Oh look, I just accidentally linked out to a piece I wrote for The Guardian about Vine and the Premier League. Excuse the lack of tone, the PR team took the bantz out of the piece.
I’ve written about the Premier League’s approach to distribution. We need more football. We need more access to highlights and we need the option to buy ALL games on any device. People will still go to the games, the clubs can make even more money from TV and most probably reduce the cost of Premier League tickets.
Just jokes, we know it doesn’t matter how much money flows into the game, it’s rarely returned to the people who keep the whole damn system going.
HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY LOVELY PEOPLE xxx
