Sunday!Went out for a pals 31st last night. He went out the evening before. We were done by 9pm.
Is this what life is now?
IS THIS WHAT AGE DOES TO YOUR TOLERANCE.
… I can’t believe there’s a redzone for beer.
No joke, I wake up with pulled muscles after nights out.
It is nice going back to your hometown and people read the site. I mean, not nice when they try to attack you for hating on Wenger, but hey, a read is a read. 0.000002p, in my pocket biiiiitches.
Also, whilst on age. I spent a week with my most unapologetic Gooner pal (outside my old
man). He’s got me into casual burping. I just rocked one out on the tube earlier. Truly liberating.
So BIG PETR, announced he’s taking on the number 33 shirt. Not sure what that’s all about. He’s tried to go all smart with…
’33 vertebrae in a spine. I AM SPINE.’
… But really. I’d be all like…
‘One world class keeper in a team. I AM BEST.’
Prolly sounds better?
Anyway, he has a number that is my dads lucky number. Which means we’ll win the league, well, that was the vibe he was giving me anyway.
Shuffling through some transfer stories on the web. Some papers desperation for traffic is unbelievable. I clicked through to a ‘story’ that consisted of about 50 words and picture of a retweet. Imagine that being your day job? Deception, basically. But some traffic, so Wolf on Wallstreet like respect no doubt.
Anyway, what do we know? Well, Bastian Schweinsteiger who has a name that is a bastard to type on a phone… is heading to United. He’s a superb player. A true champion. 29 years old though. Feels slightly regressive purchase for a midfielder in the Premier League? Very much a move for the moment. But still, a huge improvement for them in the middle of the park.
You’d also like to think this might impact our moves, kind of paves the way for us to speak to Schneiderlin. Again, we know desire is there from the player. The big question is whether there’s a desire from the club. If Flamini leaves. There’s a space. It’s down to the manager to decide how to fill it. Not moving there, for me, writes us out of the title race. It’d be very difficult to mount an effective challenge with an old crock (Mikel), and overplayed superstar (Coq) and an untested kid (Bielek). Unless he’s considering Jack in that deeper role?
It’d just be nice to go into a season prepared for once. I can’t buy into this bullshit people spout when the say… ‘It’s hard to bring in better players when we’re so damn amazing’… we’ve not won the league for over ten years. We finished 3rd last year with less points than the year before. We were knocked out of the CL by Monaco. You’re fucking deluding yourself if you don’t think our squad can be improved and relatively simply. Schneiderlin straight off the bat. Carvahllo, straight off the bat. It’s not like the weaknesses haven’t been apparent all season.
Also, don’t play the… ‘It isn’t like buying a gourmet toasted cheese sandwich from Borough Market’… because, look, both require patience, but also planning. If the queue for the toasted cheese sandwich van is too long, you move to the lobster roll area, if that’s busy, you scope out the scotch egg stand. When you are Arsenal, you have £100m spending power, the best stadium, the best city and the best toasted cheese sandwiches, you make it work.
‘No players boss’ generally means you don’t have good enough scouts. There are ALWAYS ways to improve and I’ve no doubt we will. Just shut up with ignorant statements about how amazingly difficult it must be to improve our squad. Last summer, we rolled into the season with two centre backs. That was dimness on a different level and gross misconduct if the scouting network couldn’t find anyone and terrible biz that we let Manolas go to Roma when we had a player (JC) we could have make weighted to Olympiakos.
Right I’m flying to NYC now. So it’ll be late postings all week. Apologies, but ultimately, the idea of getting up at 4am to post is about as appealing as watching Boro Priromac drop a naked squat in the midday sun.
HAVE FUN X
