I went out last night, had a proper respectable night out and found out my Uber rating is a pretty solid 4.7.
You can’t argue numbers like that.
How about the election?
I feel like Ed Milliband’s campaign was a bit like the time Spurs went out and spunked £100m on players and claimed they could win the title.
‘Oh, look at me, I’ve got Russell Brand backing me, aren’t I fancy’
Ed, my dear, you should know that the internet isn’t always the best platform for getting things done. Have the backing of Youtubers only works if you’re selling makeup or computer games!
I’ve no idea how a conservative Government affects football in this country, so I guess that’s where the chat on that subject stops!
Ok, so I’ve given you some politics… how about the biggest LOL since Spurs tried to sign Rivaldo?
Can you imagine the banter?
Tony, rocking up, kicking Tom Fox out and demanding access rights to the social media accounts. It’d be hilarious. It’d make the farce at QPR look sensible.
‘Adams has approached City investors with the aim of raising funds to buy the Premier League club, which has been up for sale publicly for a year.’
Can you imagine the state of that presentation deck?
What else do we have?
Well, Danny WELBZ is still not back in training though he is in the process of recovery.
Wenger gave the full story on Coquelin.
“I explained to him that what I liked most was his ball-winning potential rather than his playmaking potential, so I sent him out on loan to France for experience,” Wenger explained. “He played without being convincing in the box-to-box role.
“He then went to Charlton and I sent somebody to watch him. The reports were positive and I called him back after five weeks, and he wasn’t happy. I said to him, ‘why are you not happy?’ and he said, ‘I was playing regularly for Charlton and you called me back just to cover and not to play me’.
“We went into the first game and I didn’t start him. Then we went to West Ham United and I started him. He was surprised because we played at home against QPR and I didn’t play him, but I did away at West Ham.
This is my favourite part of the story.
“Since then, he has not moved out of the team because he sticks to what he is strong at – winning the ball and using it well. What is also surprising is that he’s very good in the air because he has a very good leap.”
Classic Wenger terminology there. Thomas Vermaelen also had a tremendous leap.
My favourite thing about Coquelin, bar him being a total star, is that he looked at the side, worked out where it was weak and plugged that gap.
He has no desire to be Ozil. He doesn’t have dreams of being a Steven Gerrard. He just sticks to his role and totally owns it. One of the best stories this season by an absolute mile. An inspiration to kids coming through.
Something that inspired me? The state of those Champions League semi-finals. Quite incredible how good the football was. Barcelona were just so unbelievably amazing. Pep playing it like Arsene, opting to push hard for the away goal and killed it for himself. The game was a tactical master class, the only shame of it was the injury list Bayern had.
English clubs have some way to go before they hit those heights. Trouble for our league is there’s so much competition. You can’t hoover up all the players here and you don’t have the luxury of very weak league to practice your craft week in week out.
Teams have to get better though. The bar was set so high this week. Inspirational stuff.
Right, I must crack on, have a great Friday!
