Merry Christmas one and all!
Just here thinking about all the religions out there that don’t have this amazing day to shower gifts on those they love. The absolute inconvenience of it all. I’m also thinking about the hypocritical atheists using the birthday of Jesus to acquire Nando’s gift cards. Shocking.
Anyway, a bit of Christmas cheer from Turkey… not the bird, the country. Apparently Eboue has been offered a coaching role at Gala, and they’re going to take care of him. That’s very sweet in such a short space of time. I was no fan of him as a right back or a winger, but as a person, he dressed up as a tiger to make the team LOL. Elite class clownage.
There’s also hope with Alexis, who apparently decided he hated Arsenal when we were tanked by Bayern. The Chilean wide man showed the kids how well he can hold onto the ball when he’s not trying to engineer a move away from the club.

Very sweet. It just shows, that even when you’re a rich footballer, giving a free pass to a bunch of kids is not acceptable. Picture that scene… now imagine that on Mario Cart later when I’m trashing 3 six year olds. No mercy, Alexis told me.
Finally, massive shout out to Romesh Ranganathan on some Sky round-up of hilarious football capers. His takedown of Stevie G slipping was hilarious. No mercy. Totally ruthless, like Giroud bearing down on goal against a bottom half of the table team when we’re 4-0 up at home.
Double finally, thank you so much for playing along with the site this year, I’m always thankful for your continued readership and occasional kind words. We’re heading into the final days of Arsene Wenger, everything we’ve ever dreamed of / campaigned for is coming soon. That’s the greatest gift of all.
BIG LOVE, see you tomorrow when we can put this family shit to one side and crack into something really interesting.
