Super short post today because I hit the big 30 and Arsene Wenger has just given me the bad news on my new deal… it’s rolling pay as a play.
That man is a total joke…
England are now officially out of the World Cup. I find this sad, but not unexpected.
What is interesting is how much of an easy ride Roy Hodgson has been getting through this whole thing. It’s like nothing is his responsibility. Really can’t buy into the ‘shit happens’ line of investigation. Ultimately, if Mourinho was in charge of that bunch of players, would we be out now? No, we wouldn’t.
That said, there are some hilarious articles around the place. Reading Alan Hansen’s take down of a system he thinks cannot be fixed.
Righto Alan, England can never fix their football. Loads of money, loads of people and we’re the only country that can’t make it work. What an absolute tool.
Anyway, I can support Iran today as they take on Argentina in what is going to be a massive feast of exciting football. I’m expecting big things from Reza HAGHIGHI, one of my heroes. So let’s see how country number two goes from a support perspective.
This really is going to be short. I’m off to brutalise myself in a pub.
So Arsenal are going hard for Reus (here ) and Sanchez (here & here) this summer. Both half forwards, both capable of playing as a striker, both immensely talented and exciting, both available for different reasons.
Marco Reus might potentially be on the radar because next year his buyout clause is activated. We all know what that means for a German at the poor mans Bayern. Likelihood of this one happening feels stronger because he hasn’t had the chance to showcase his world beater brilliance on the world stage. We’ve also got a bunch of Germans who love London. And, well, it’s London.
You might need one of these at some point during this post
MORNING! Shocker eh? So early…
Yet more high profile spankings dished out yesterday, this time, Germany took down Portugal… the England of the latino countries. They beat them 4-0. Quite embarrassing how easily they delivered the defeat. Thomas Mueller stealing the show. The scruffiest footballer of them all. He literally looks like he’s rolled out of bed, had his football gear thrown at him… and then he bags a few goals without ever looking like he’s stepped out of second gear.
Monday morning here and the delightful story around Arsenal selling their second captain to United. A great way to start the week. A week which involves me moving into my last contract as an Arsenal player.
Now, I know why we’ll be doing this. We want rid of an expensive third choice central defender. He’ll be on £80k a week and no one else will pay that. For me, that should be a total irrelevance. Does there ever come a time where we say, ‘actually, in this situation, we should not worry about the cash, because selling to a rival is dumb’.
