This part of the year is so painfully slow for the world of Arsenal news. It’s like going through your third round of interrogation… you have nothing, you can’t even be bothered to make anything up, you’re just strapped there in your chair in a pair of lightly soiled unflattering briefs.
That’s me right now.
Outside, it’s raining. My newsfeed is arid.
Arsene Wenger revealed his method of training Sanchez to be a better player… and it’s going to blow your tiny mind.
“He asked me to play there so I said fine — I looked up some videos on the internet to see how I needed to adjust my movement and I’ve been adapting since then.”
I love that. So many people lambast football fans who learn their stuff online, and I often wonder why? What can’t you learn from the internet? I tell ya, the comments section of Le Grove throws up exciting players way before they hit mass market fame. I’m constantly fascinated by the new crop of tactical bloggers who post their thoughts mapped to videos. You can learn so much by studying online materials these days… so it’s not a surprise Arsene let Sanchez loose on the internet.
Wonder how long it took him to deviate to dog videos?
Boss: Sanchez, who did you study today?
We find out later whether our season is in a state of RIP when Chile take on Uruguay in World Cup qualifications. The game kicks off 630pm EST time, so I’ll be tuning in whilst biting through my nails and the girls who sits next to me. Apparently they’re going all out in risking everyone to make this match happen.
Just to add additional worry into the mix, the stadium, according to two seconds of research is 1760ft above sea level. Less oxygen, faster fatigue, shitty grass, long plane journey… already damaged player.
What could POSSIBLY affect our plan for Manchester United?
Talking of sad times, England hired Gareth Southgate, who thinks class is permanent and has rehired Wayne Rooney to the England setup. Beyond embarrassing how consistently managers of England fall for superstardom despite statistics telling them the hard truths.
How can England be so bereft of coaching talent? All hiding out in the lower leagues I’d guess. Not just that, but we have an FA that has no vision. How do we expect a group of old past it football establishment to #1 Recognise Sam Allardyce was a bad manager and dodgy as fuck #2 think creatively beyond Gareth Southgate.
<Update> Wayne Rooney out of the England game because he was pissed at the hotel
We get the manager we deserve. We get the team we deserve.
AS are reporting that Madrid are set to offer Le Grove favourite Dybala of Juve a 15m a year deal to join them. What a player that boy is going to become!
Right, that’s me done.
