Early start this morning so we’ll get right down to it.
Arsene Wenger called for focus ahead of today’s game against Sunderland. We’ve been through it all before so we’re just looking to stay consistent and keep this run going. I don’t think there’s any danger of underestimating Sunderland. Also, with Manchester United now top of the table, albeit having played two games more, after a 4-0 win over Wigan there’s a little bit more pressure on.
Gilberto says he’ll consider other options if he’s not playing regularly by Christmas time. He’s 31 today so happy birthday to him. He’s a funny man is Arsene. Arguably our best and most consitent player last season the Brazilian found himself overlooked for the captaincy for the injury prone penis of William Gallas now he can’t even get in the team. It must be frustrating.
Jens Lehmann has been selected in the German squad for the upcoming internationals and now that he’s ‘back to fitness’ he wants his Arsenal place back. Manuel Almunia has kept 6 or 7 clean sheets this season but Jens is not impressed, saying:
Almunia has also said a lot in the past. Once he even said he was one of the best in Europe. But his performances have not made me have any serious concerns.
Now, I can’t remember Almunia ever making such a claim but nor can I remember him fucking up a simple back pass and allowing a striker to score less than 60 seconds into a game, then following that up by letting a bread and butter shot from outside the area slip through his fingers to let a bunch of cunts equalise. You really have to wonder what colour the sky is in Lehmann’s world because he’s not living in the same one as the rest of us. Those kinds of comments really are unnecessary and with team spirit so high at the moment we can do without living through one of Jens’ personal spats.
The Telegraph reports Stan Kroenke has been invited to join the Arsenal board. We’ll have to wait and see what happens there.
Right, that’s it. I have to go. Talk to you tomorrow and come on you reeeeeeds.
