Nightmares are a bit crap, aren’t they? I was awoken from one last night by Mrs Blogs who was somewhat concerned, and disturbed, at the fact I was flapping about the bed shrieking like a banshee. From what I remember some wizard type chap had control over me and was making me fly very high up into the air. I suspect, but for the timely intervention of Mrs Blogs, that he would then have dropped me from a great height. When I went back to sleep I dreamt I was playing football against this team that did nothing but chat back to the referee.
They thought they were really smart by sarcastically saying “Yes, ref. Of course, ref”, then when he was out of earshot calling him a ‘Useless clit’ under their breath. I almost came to blows with one of their players whose head was completely square in shape and he had that very thick Matt Damon style hair, which to me is generally a sign that you’re dealing with someone whose genetics are a bit fucked up. It’s all good now though, I have coffee.
Tomas Rosicky has backed himself to score more goals this season. He’s not really going out on a limb considering he has two already and just needs another two between now and May to equal last season’s tally. Seriously though, it’s good that he’s scoring and hopefully he can keep it up. The midfield has scored twice as many goals as the strikers so far this season, which is quite the turn around.
The Sun says Arsene’s new contract is worth Â£75,000 a week. Personally I think Arsene is over-worked and I would like to state on the record that I will quite happily fill in for him for a couple of weeks so he can get a nice holiday and perhaps go on some water slides. Everyone loves water slides.
As expected Jens Lehmann is fit to play for Germany. It will be interesting to see if he’s fit to take a place on the bench when he returns.
Gilles Sunu, a summer signing from Chateauroux, says he turned down Chelsea and Man United to come to Arsenal. The 16 year old says:
I chose Arsenal because Arsenal make careers for a lot of young players. Itâ€™s a great, great, great club â€” my favourite in the world, the team I support.
Aw, that’s cool. I once had a chance to join Man United when I was a lad but I told them ‘No, I will not enlist in your coven of cunts. Get thee away from me’. In hindsight, perhaps I acted too hastily.
Not a great deal else to tell you about, I have to say. The AST were kind enough to come on tomorrow’s Arsecast so that’s something.
