Good morning people. Sorry I’m late today, I was getting my oven baked pizza smashed front teeth rectified in the US of A. What a pleasant experience. When those guys find out you have insurance, they’ve got you on that Smile Plan in no time. I need realigning at the bottom, a filling, an implant and a schedule. Who knew?
I feel a million bucks though. So much good smile.
Right, what do we have here?
Oh yes, I made a terrible mistake in thinking that Pierre-Erick was short. He’s actually 6ft1. What’s great about making a mistake on the internet, is it’s the most accurate way of working out whether you have a readership, 20,000 people telling me that I’d dropped this faux pa really drove that home yesterday.
‘YOU HAVE NO CREDIBILITY’
Thanks for that. Nice to know that you can lose credibility with one mistake. God bless the shitfest that is Twitter.
Anyway, you know what else was a mistake? Thinking he’d come to Arsenal. He told Colin Udoh that he would not be moving to Arsenal.
What a shocker.
Wenger has said that Debuchy could leave. Rumours are that he might head over to Villa. That makes sense, when you push a pal into a shite job and you want to make things up to him… just give him a right back that’s going to impact his chances of success ZERO.
Still hate the idea that Wenger is serving the players feelings before the clubs. You know, YOU JUST SIMPLY KNOW, that Bellerin will slip on some shaving foam and impale himself on a comically misplaced corner flag the instant he’s sent away.
Recall Jenks, right away!
Arsene Wenger has said that Sanchez won’t be back for the Liverpool game. He should be back for the Stoke game. That’s 9 days away. You have to say, the club botched his return. Too keen, far too keen to get him back in contention.
‘But he likes to run around’
So does the dog I don’t own. Doesn’t mean I let him do it when football is on. Sometimes you have to manager players and their wants.
Still, at least we haven’t really missed him. Also, if he comes back and he’s 100% ready, hopefully that’ll mean he’s full of beans for the run in. Everyone LOVES and energetic Sanchez. Perfect to have him on form firing us to the league
Also, I’m really fucking slow to the part on this… but the app, Fanatix, was shown to me by an Arsenal buddy at the weekend.
ALL THE GOALS, IN YOUR PHONE. Jump on it people. Kind of feel like I’m recommending Facebook as a good communications tool in 2016 here. But if you’re a luddite like I have apparently become, it’ll change your life.
Arsene Wenger says the Egyptian deal is ‘a little bit complicated’… but it should be sorted in a couple of days. That’s good news. I doubt he’ll be ready until March, as seems to happen whenever we sign players in January. But it’ll be good for the squad depth and also good for the squad to have a new friend to play with.
Amusing that Real Madrid are tracking Harry Kane as the new Ronaldo.
Also interesting that Chelsea are still tracking The Ox in a post Mourinho era. You know why? Because he’s a talent. Arsenal fans really need to get off his back. Sure, he’s having a bad season, but I’d put my money and the money I’d borrow off a violent loan shark on him coming good. Power, pace, drive… he’s just a bit green. But the pieces are there, it’s a mental game for him right now, once he cracks that, I think we’ll see something quite special.
Some papers are saying Howedes (sounds like a DIY retail outlet) has a £9m release clause in his contract. Why am I struggling to believe this?
Maybe because if this were true every club in the world would have activated the release caluse with a £9,000,001 bid. He’s only 27 years old! I’d have me some of that.
Finally, Freddie is back at the club. We’re like one giant 2004 reunion tour at the moment. It’s great to see. I just wonder how well they will all do as managers? All legends, all leaders, all relatively smart, all trained under Arsene Wenger in the good years.
I think I’ve mentioned before, but the 1993 Barca side has churned out the best batch of coaches in the world (Villanova, Enrique, Guardiola, Van G, Koeman). Will United 1999 or Arsenal 2002 have a similar impact?
We have Paddy V a possible candidate for City when Guardiola is sacked. We have Remi Garde bombing hard at Villa. You have Freddie, Bould, Jens, Seaman and Theirry floating about the club at the moment. Will any fly the nest? Will any take over the nest? What would they bring to the game?
It’s exciting times…
Right, see you on the other side, I’ll be in early on the match report tomorrow because I think I’m gonna not drink today. A continuation of my purer lifestyle.
HAVE A GREAT DAY LOVE FROM ME x
