HAPPY DAY TO YOU.
So Ivan, look, buddy… when I asked for the summer Arsenal tour to be played in America, I kind of expected that you’d at least of noted that I live on the east coast, not the west coast.
I’m upset and disheartened. But, if I have to go and see Arsenal play in the land of the pristine, I shall.
Pretty exciting that Arsenal are hitting up California this summer. There’s a massive contingent of Gooners who hang out there and have to suffer some disgusting kick off times to get their shot of Arse action. Canny wait… especially as we’re playing and MLS All-Star team. Can’t wait to see, errrrm, errrrrr, Bradley Wright-Phillips?
Anyway, it’s the taking part.
So, in other news, I read a great article on Arsene Wenger and his meddlesome ways. It’s by Jonathan Wilson and it’s a very eloquent attempt at saying that Wenger screws himself by being Wenger and not evolving his thinking to suit the modern age.
I mean, nothing we haven’t been saying on here for eternity. Wenger wins whatever. If he smashed the league this season, he’d be the hero. If he loses, he loses on his terms and there’s no consequence. How many football managers have that sort of power?
Martin Keown said if Arsenal fans protest ticket prices, he’d join the party.
The ticketing affair is getting a bit out of hand. Majorly disappointing that Arsenal protested the freeze on away ticket prices. I guess there’s no such thing as too much revenue in the game of football. I’d be fine with the opposition if we were using the money to buy players. We don’t, we just hoard it instead.
Fans in stadiums make for good TV. Fans who travel to games spend huge sums of money to do so. We should protect those fans. They are mad people. They show incredible dedication. Why not drop the price they have to pay?
Anyway, Arsenal fans aren’t very good at protesting. Pretty wealthy in general I guess? Not sure what it would take for us to make a stand.
Good news on the injury front. Danny WELBZGOOD could be back for Hull. Literally can’t wait to be really disappointed about how unworldclass he is next week. Jack Wilshere and Santi are back running. Wenger said it’s weeks rather than months until they’re playing again. Which means months. So don’t get your hopes up.
Right, not a lot of time today… back home on a plane next to a person that will be unpleasant.
HAPPY FRIDAY x
