Some congratulations to begin with. Well done to Theo Walcott for becoming England’s youngest ever senior player aged 17 years and 75 days. He came on during England’s 3-1 win over Hungary last night. Speaking of which that ‘rock the cradle’ celebration should be outlawed though. Oh, one of your girlfriends has had a baby. Who fucking cares? Crouch’s robot was quite amusing though. That should be made compulsory.
Also congrats to Philippe Senderos for being named Swiss player of the year. He gets a cheese with some holes in it and his very own Swiss bank account.
Some terribly sad news yesterday in that Newcastle manager Glenn Roeder has ruled out a move for Sol Campbell. I am genuinely gutted.
Gunnerblog reports on reports in Greece that we’ve made a â‚¬15m bid for Yaya Toure. Whilst a lot of people cream themselves over having another Kolo in the team he’s never really impressed me when I’ve seen him and although his big brother says Yaya is the better footballer he seems to lack the dedication and commitment which makes Kolo such a favourite. Anything over â‚¬5m is too expensive for me and even then I’m not sure he’s the player we need. We need to add steel to the midfield so if there was a Slasher Toure or a Hatchet Toure I’d be much happier with one of them instead of a Yaya.
Not much else happening. Just time to tell you about a promotion between Arseblog and Toffs shirts which gives you 10% off the price of any Toffs shirt between now and August. Toffs is run by a Arsenal fan as well and the shirts are well cool. My 71 cup final shirt with a big number 7 on the back is now my favourite Arsenal shirt. For more details check out this page.
Ok then chums, till tomorrow.
