A local golf club gave my old man a battered Ian Wright garden gnome, so he painted it (smart paint job). In my opinion, Arsenal are missing a trick not selling these. Ivan, drop me an e-mail, my Dad will do you a deal.
Anyway, feels quiet outside. Like something is brewing. Maybe it’s a transfer?
Who knows. Don’t get too excited about the silence. Embrace it and hope for the best.
So, what’s on today?
Well, Puma have a kit launch event on Monday. I’m guessing they’re going to showcase the new kit… and a £30m defensive midfeilder with Petr Cech?
No? Maybe not?
Ok, but whatever. We all love a kit launch. Amazing how much more interested Puma are in engaging fans over Nike. They’re like a new girlfriend after a souless 10 year marriage. So much attention for us. They’re making it an event, and in exchange, we must buy their products… which, to be honest, are way nicer than the items Nike offered. Far more fashion oriented.
I’ve been invited to their event where I’m going to tell them that football kits ARE NOT FOR ADULTS. They’ll soon realise why my marriage to Nike was soulless.
What else is going off?
OMG. Arsenal are being charged with bad things for messing about in the transfer of Calum Chambers. We’ve breached the rules. We could be in trouble. Someone quipped that Wenger would love a transfer ban… the total pervert.
‘IS THAT ALL YOU’VE GOT, MAKE IT TWO YEARS I DARE YOU’
Arsene, calm down, it’ll be a fine at worst. A bit embarrassing either way!
I’m writing this with Jeremy Kyle on in the background (A poverty Jerry Springer) and I’m wondering how these people get laid so frequently? Currently listening to a woman complain her Napoleon Dynamite lookalike boyfriend dealt with her pal when she walked the dog… plaaaaaya.
Anyway, Jack Wilshere doesn’t want to go to Manchester City.
“I wouldn’t go somewhere just because I’m a home-grown player,”
“I’d want to be wanted by a club; I want to be wanted by Arsenal.”
Jeez, it’s like listening to Mike Skinner song after a heavy weekend. I’m welling up over here. Don’t sell him Arsene, he’s up for an open relationship if that’ll make things work? This is the second time he’s come out about this, so there must be a worry / fear that something might be brewing.
He’s a major talent, he’s just not shown it. So from a brutalist viewpoint, if you can get £30m for him, you’d be inclined to take it… IF HE WAS FOREIGN. But he’s not, he’s English, so I’d imagine we’ll hold on to him. Hopefully watch him blossom into Xavi.
Wenger is apparently pushing through the Cech deal. That’d be a seriously brilliant signing. One of the best since Sanchez. We’re also going to sign up Theo Walcott. Which is nice. Not sure about him through the middle, but he’s a good option through the forward line. He’s also the best finisher at the club.
Right, that’s all I can muster. Let’s chat later. Like, maybe tomorrow? x
