Worrying news this morning. AFTV fan personality Claude has gone missing, no one has heard from him. He suffers from depression. The police are involved. His friends and the Arsenal online community are obviously concerned about his wellbeing.
What I find really disgusting about the whole scenario is that people know he has problems, yet still troll him. That’s the issue with sad men (it’s almost always men) who sit behind computer screens. They don’t understand they’re talking to people. Real people, with real human emotions.
It’s just a sorry state of affairs that there are so many people online who take kicks from getting a reaction from someone they perceive as celebrity. If your existence online is built on hate, maybe you need to reconsider your existence?
Be nice to people on the internet, because you never know what’s going on with the person on the other side.
Keeping them all crossed for Claude.
In other news, Neymar has just renewed for… £571,000 a week! WHAT A DEAL MY LORD THAT IS CRAZY.
Football really is going totally mental at the moment. That salary is so far beyond the realms of anything. It’s interesting that in a world where the gap between rich and poor is growing so fast, we’re still clapping these sorts of salaries. Fair play to him for earning all that cash… it just feels pretty vulgar in a space that’s turning pretty nasty because of this sort of disparity.
Alexis put up this on the Twitter.

Pretty grotty. I did the same in similar conditions in December.
No shit, I still have issues off the back of it. It took about 2 months for the fluid to clear. The bruising took an age. I can run on it, but I’m probably not as fast as Sanchez was right now.
I appreciate he’ll get more than a special shoe and free HIV test to cure it, but jeez, that looks pretty damn serious for a pro-athlete. Total banter if we lose him before the start of the season.
Still not rumours on the transfer front. Kante apparently wants to go to Chelsea, Barcelona and Madrid all at the same time. United are looking at Pogba for £65m. I mean, things are shaping up over there. Mikk, Ibra and THE POG would be pretty exceptional summer biz. Rashford, Martial in the forward line… Schneiderlin. I mean, they have a pretty energetic team there.
I hate Jose so much for just doing things right. Even if it is only for three seasons.
Still, it’ll be interesting to see what Conte manages to do. He’s been super smart in France this summer so far. I like the cut of his JIB. No idea how that translates into club football. No idea what he’ll mean for the Premier League. What I do know is England is about to get pretty fucking good at football. We now have coaches that will be able to compete tactically with the best in the world. No more peasant football for us.
Right my little beauties, I’ll see you tomorrow. It’s July 4th weekend… when American’s celebrate us gifting them a country because we wanted to share the world.
Looking at you America…
P.S. If you’re looking for a pair of season tickets in block 96 (upper tier, sweet view if you’re a tactics genius like me) this year, drop me a mail. I have a man who has a dog, if you get what I mean. £1,350 each.
