Ok, so no one told me mosquitos are clever. They actually hide. I’ve been on a three-day battle against one that has hidden in my apartment and so far, I’m being outsmarted. It’s gotten to the point where I’ve spent so many hours fighting the beast, I’m not sure whether I’d kill, or hug it out if we met.
Anyway, that’s my life right now and so fucking what.
Arsenal has a fun game against Doncaster in the League Cup this evening.
The big question. How the fuck do we play the tournament?
Maybe we go back to basics.
FA Cup – Fall back if we’ve tanked in the league by January
Europa – The freshener for the second stringers like Alexis and Ozil
League Cup – All out 2002-2008 Project Youth
GIMME THE NAMES I WANT TO WORSHIP
I want to see Reiss Nelson DAZZLING like CARLOS VEEEEEELLLLLAAAAA
I want CHUUUUUUUBA Akpom finishing like LORD BENDTNER
I want to be debating the merits of Maitland-Niles like he was the REBIRTH of DENILSON
Marcus McGuane could be BIGGER that DEEEEEEEENCH lad we all had hopes and prayers for.
SHOW ME THE JOE WILLOCK, THE EDDIE NKETIAH, and the JOSH DASILVA
Let’s make this the sexiest under 23 party since Porn Hub threw a pop up in The Tollington.
I’m into it. After years of waiting for the rebirth of Project Youth, are we finally about to see a little bit of fruit in an otherwise barren orchard?
I hope so. I don’t want to think Joncker and Ljungberg were as useless as their short Wolfsburg careers suggest.
… but look. There are others we might see. Jack Wilshere has finally matured, apparenlty. Wenger had this to say…
‘Jack deals with the pressure very well,’
‘He always had that from a very young age but I would say that overall he is more patient now. He got a few knocks and bruises that build a man and at the start it was all very easy for him.
‘Jack has gone through some tough times so he has that density, that fitness now of a man who knows that life is not only easy.
‘You have as well to go through some difficult periods and he has always had a football brain. Jack understands football very well, but I would say he’s a much more mature man today. He had always common sense Jack, but he had an impulsive character.’
I mean, you’re all reading that right? I mean. A lot I could pick holes in here, but Jack is English and the rules state I can’t critique a man of my own nationality.
My thing is this… you can paint Jack however you want, but reality is he’s a talent. A wasted one. He has one more chance to make the big time, and that’s at Arsenal. If not, he’ll likely face a career at Crystal Palace. Fine if all you care about is money, not so fine if you have dreams of the big time.
We’ll also likely see a bit of Per, maybe some Calum Chambers, and certainly a bit of David Ospina (YIKES).
Should be a fun game. Almost as fun as watching Chamberlain have a BLINDER in last nights Liverpool appearance. In the sense that I mean if your eyes were ‘shite football’ sensitive, you’d have lost your sight casting a view over his game.

Finally, what about United fans singing about the size of their star strikers penis? Aside from the odd defence of ‘positive’ racial stereotyping… IS IT NOT A BIT F*CKING WEIRD TO SING ABOUT A MAN’S PENIS?
Brexit Britain. What a joke.
