Well, well, well… the good times keep rolling. Conte of Italy taking many plaudits for an exceptional tactical display against a disappointingly underprepared Belgium.
ARSENE LOOK WHAT’S COMING TO THE PREM, he says after seeing one game.
Belgium once again failed to impress. Lukaku missed some crisply golden chances, so obviously all Arsenal fans are crowing that he’s shi*e. I’d not take him at £60m, but nor would any club. The guy is still a kid, he’ll get better and he’ll likely be a pain in our asses at some point, just like Drogba was… and remember, Didier was one of the most embarrassing players in the league when he first joined… at what, 26? I remember him saying he’d be as good as Thierry… I laughed, then spent the next 8 years having nightmares about him.
Same with Morata, he didn’t look great, so everyone is assuming after 1 poor game, he is useless. You need to watch a player at least twice before you come to sweeping conclusions in my opinion.
One thing is for sure about this tournament so far, nations have invested too much in creative talent, not enough in those that can finish the production off…
Nice that Jack Wilshere has been putting his brains to good use… stating Wayne Rooney is like Pirlo.
“It hurts me to say but he plays the position unbelievably”
“I’ve said it before: he’s our best player. He’s got that range of passing, he understands the game. He can still play up front in my opinion. He can be a striker”
Pretty embarrassing commentary to be honest. It reads like he’s just come up in DC10 at 10 in the morning and he’s determined to have a deep and meaningful about anything. Comparing him to Pirlo? Saying he’s the best player in our squad? Sad indictment of his own skills and those of others in our line up. A bit of a toe curler was that interview.
Good to see Jamie Vardy prepping hard for England.
Chewing tobacco and a Red Bull. What a man. As a side note, who the hell gets involved in chewing tobacco these days? That wasn’t even on the roster of bad things to get involved in as a kid.
Mkhitaryan’s sister just followed Arsenal on LinkedIn. A powerful indicator that he’s heading our way everyone. What a moment. I knew as soon as she did that it was happening.
‘YO SIS, need you to do something for my fans. Follow The Arsenal, for corporate updates and media meddling’
You can just see that conversation can’t you?
MICROSOFT BUYING LINKEDIN FOR £26b. My word. What were they thinking?
In delicious scandalous news, the blood bags that a Spanish court ordered to be destroyed in 2013 are being handed over to WADA for inspection. Cyclists, tennis players and FOOTBALL players could be implicated in a pretty mega PED scandal. Imagine if the Barca side of Pep was on the PEDs? Would explain a lot, eh?
Hopefully not. I don’t want doping to be a football issue. Unless it’s Spurs. That’d be banterous.
Unai Emery, the Europa League winner at Sevilla is leaving. No idea where he’s off to, but interestingly, Sevilla are looking to sign Jorge Sampaoli… the exChile coach. A very exciting appointment if that happens.
Right, final piece, my pal wrote a piece on Wenger, so read it here!
