HAPPY DAY TO YOU.
The day of Sun.
Or fire day.
Either way, Sky took ownership of it and turned it into the super-est of Sunday’s.
No news today. I’m over my transfer window grief. I’m over the fact I have Gooner pals who forgive the manager like a mistreated baby monkey forgives a robot parent in one of those weird psychological experiments.
I’m over these things. Let them have their beliefs. Let them live their footballing lives in ways that are contradictory to their own.
I didn’t watch the San Marino game. Though one of my first ever England games was against them in the nineties with my uncle. That night I was introduced to disappointment and macaroons. ‘Twas a confusing evening. So much joy with the soft biscuits, so much sadness that I was tied to Enguuuuuuurland football for life.
Wayne Rooney scored. So did Theo. HOORAY.
I heard Chambo, my favourite Arsenal player, also played well. Such a talent. So happy. His fresh face juxtaposed against Wayne Rooney’s haggard 40 a day moon boat. Chalk and cheese.
I’m really excited about Alex. He needs to cut out the sloppy play in his own half and he needs to be more decisive… But that’ll come and we’ll have an absolute powerhouse of a player. It’d be nice if he could add goals to his game. That will come, I just doubt it’ll come this season.
Though secretly, you know I am trying to jinx this…
Theo scoring is great news. He’s an instinctive player, not always the smartest, but he has pace… and that’ll cause problems if it’s blended with confidence.
Hell, I think he could be world class this year. Well, if we believe hard enough, our dreams come true.
… I’m so Disney right now!
Right, this has to be short. I’ve just spotted a man at the airport wearing flip flops, just going to give him a piece of my mind.
HAVE FUN, SEE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE.
P.S. Wanna thank Alex for bringing the term ‘true believer’ into my life. It’s so perfect. A more modern take on AKB.
