Ok, so I indulged myself with a little Oranje and it was good.
Serge Gnabry scored an absolute peach of a goal, making VVD look like Stepanovs in the process. He’s so fast and powerful when he runs… I love how direct he is… and that shot, wow, he’s clearly the heir to Podolski.
Hollandhase some very sexy talent in their team, but Germany still took them down in the end. I thought Memphis looked very good out wide, I wonder if there’s a big move back to one of the big leagues this summer?
In Arsenal news, it appears Steve Morrow and Francis Cagigao are set for promotions as Arsenal shake up their backroom team. We’re still looking for a technical director, but there’s no real news on where that’s coming from, so I guess we’ll see what happens.
I don’t know enough about Morrow and Cagigao to make an assessment on what they’ll bring to the club, one would hope the deep knowledge of Arsenal will work in their favour, and maybe now Wenger has gone they’ll have an opp to shine if they’re given a bit more power.
I would love us to do something fancy with the top football job. The person who sets the tone at Arsenal should have a track record of doing it before. We’re not in a position to take risks. Even less so when you consider we’ve never really had a structure to start with. It’d be great to find someone who is doing exciting things, with the ability to reset the club and put us on course for the next ten years.
My worry from the start was that the search and select process was going to be amateur and a little bit old boys club. Nothing has indicated otherwise so far, but happy to be proved wrong… in fact, I am literally begging on my hands and knees and praying that I am wrong. I don’t like the notion that the club could be taken advantage of by a group of guys who know the owner isn’t really paying attention. Everyone gets a fat wage, an easy life and very little pressure because our fans aren’t really that demanding. Again, I hope I’m wrong.
Arsenal are in Dubai.
I don’t really have much to say on this… bar… did anyone ask if the Royalty had a spare £3 billion to buy the club?
Right, that’s me done… see you in the comments. x
