Morning all, the first World Cup quarter finals take place today with Arsenal interest centering around Jens Lehmann as Germany play Argentina. He talks about the build up here and as good as Argentina have been I have a sneak feeling the Germans will go through. The home advantage is not something you can underestimate. It promises to be a fantastic game though.
In the other match Italy play Ukraine. And that’s it.
In Arsenal news the club has been cleared by FIFA of any wrong doing with regards to Beveren. After an FA investigation FIFA announced yesterday that:
There is no evidence or indication of any infringement of the relevant regulations. Fifa does not see any reason for further investigation or for any additional measures to be taken in this connection.
So, in the end it was a load of old bollocks instigated by a Sp*rs fan and just before the vote which saw David Dein replaced on the FA Committee. As I said at the time I couldn’t care less about Dein’s position at the FA, I still don’t, but given the complete lack of anything incriminating you have to think that the timing was a bit suspicious.
Philippe Senderos has had surgery on the shoulder injury he picked up playing for Switzerland. Hopefully he’ll get well soon.
I am an Arsenal player right now and I am very happy and at ease there. I don’t need anything else.
Huurah for Cesc. In vague transfer related news Yaya Toure says he wants to leave Olypiakos and Arsenal is a destination that’s always mentioned. The Sun reports our continued interest in Frank Ribery.
And that’s it. I was going to mention something about some other cheeky Arsenal website but I won’t. Hasta maÃ±ana.
