Well good f*cking morning to you all!
2 days until I leave for sunny England. Land of the free. Well, nearly. I am hugely excited to head back home to reacquaint myself with that Essex accent I try so hard all year to suppress, get knee deep in Marmite, proper bacon and highly offensive ‘banter.’ Things are so bad in New York these days, a woman apologised to me the other day for saying ‘they didn’t have the balls.’
IT IS OK MY BALLS ARE NOT UPSET.
Right, what are we going to talk about today?
We could talk about SPOTY? Or we could decide that people who shriek about that need to grow the fuck up. It’s a popularity contest. Who cares?
We could talk about Mesut Ozil? NO. We should talk about the German Netflix show called Dogs of Berlin.
This show is about a German footballer of Turkish descent that’s murdered.
GERMAN ENTERTAINMENT FOLK, ARE YOU BLOODY KIDDING ME?
Now, I haven’t seen it, but look, we live in a culture of outrage. If my balls can get offended, then so can I over this abomination. Likely just a rough set of coincidences, but my word, not a good look after the carry-on over the World Cup.
Anyway, the German is being linked to United. Now, not that I’d be fussed if we could do a deal, as long as it doesn’t involve a player. We’ve had WELBZ, Silvestre and Mikhi off them. I quite liked Bailly from his Spain days, but he’s not cutting it in a terrible side, I’m not sure we should be taking a chance. That said, give me him over Cahill or Pepe.
Arsenal face BATE in the next round of the Europa League. Round of bloody 32. How boring. Even worse, the kick-off times are 5.55pm. That means people have to leave work extra early. What a pain in the backside. Additionally, City and Southampton move from Saturday’s to Sunday’s and our Bournemouth game moves from a Tuesday to a Wednesday. Europa is the absolute pits for weekend games. I really miss 3pm kick-offs on a Saturday.
What else could we talk about? How about the story that Rabiot is going to be sold by PSG this January because he won’t sign a new deal. Rumours are Spurs are in for him, as well as Juventus. No chance we’ll be in for a player Emery insisted wasn’t good enough to be a box to box midfielder, but it’s nice to dream of us picking up sexy deals like that.
Finally, I really love The Arsenal Community team. LOOK AT THAT KIDS HAPPY FACE. So damn cute.
