Yah babes, I’m feeling you. Firstly, I wish my husband bought me a Peloton because I am telling you right now, forced enclosure is not good for this washboard sixpack I’ve been cultivating in 2020. Secondly, watching the news well dry up is quite alarming. It’s the absolute fear that I might… you know, have to work to write my daily blogs?
Oof, I feel queezy.
Today, we’ve landed at the point where the best news stories are… ‘YOU’LL NEVER GUESS WHAT THESE FANS ON TWITTER FOUND MILDLY INTERESTING’… and you know what? I clicked. It was shite, but it warmed up the news-cold-turkey.
We’re so desperate for news that John Barnes opinion on how the Premier League should end is making headlines.
A topic that is interesting is players transfers. If the season isn’t closed out by June 30th, players will enter the last year of their deal, which could be a monstrous pain in the fucking backside. We could lose Auba for nothing next summer by accident and we’ll end up devaluing a whole bunch of players who ‘might’ have moved but could change their minds as the view of a Bosman transfer becomes a little more focused.
UEFA will have to shift the transfer window.
I’m also interested to see how training carries on. Is it business as usual next week like some of the papers are saying? Training isn’t exactly social distancing.
The good news for Arsenal and most of the Premier League clubs is we’re all landing a midseason preseason with our coaches. Injured players come back into the mixer, the club can do the conditioning that wasn’t there in the summer, and new ideas can be bedded into minds of players that may have been struggling.
I appreciate that advantage is for everyone, but it’s at least an advantage for those of you who think Arteta has good ideas.
The comeback I’m looking forward to the most is Kieran Tierney. He’s a chance creation machine and an absolute beast. Where do we end up playing Bukayo Saka? Is he a left-back? Or does he move further up the pitch? Whatever happens, the left side of Arsenal is wrapped up nicely for the next few years. Especially when you factor in Gabriel. Woah. I’m excited.
SEAN BLOODY DYCHE. Manager of the month? Outrageous.
There are some rumblings about Auba and Barca, not sure I’m buying into them, but while his contract is up in the air, you never damn well know.
Right, short post today, back in the morning.
