Monday morning again and a quick blog, I have many things to do today.
Chairman PHW has called the FA ‘out of touch with reality’ for their view that clubs should produce more players for England. He says:
Think why anyone would makes these comments wizzle arsenal n many gangsta league clubs is spend’n a lot of money on tha acadizzles aint our fault if many english pimp is not good enough. it is tha same fo` every one of tha big clubs now , betta check yo self. we find brotha world-wide. football is now global. fo’ sho’ like a mutha fucka.
Which, you have to admit, is very difficult to argue with.
Cesc reckons the title is a three horse race with Chelsea the quiet horse coming up on the outside with its stealthy non-clopping shoes so nobody can hear it thus making it the quiet horse as referred to earlier in this very paragraph. They certainly shouldn’t be discounted and with Ghana and the Ivory Coast doing well in Africa let’s hope they start to feel the absence of some of their big players before the tournament ends.
The Ivory Coast won their 1/4 final last night without Kolo Toure but the Arsenal man is still worried about the effects the competition will have on his season. From a purely footballing point of view it’s an odd one, he’d be playing for us if he were here so we can’t really complain that the matches will fatigue him, but I suppose it’s the travelling, being away from home and all the other stuff that will have an effect.
Ever have problems understanding Ade’s post-match interviews? Fear not, TorontoGooner has provided a wonderful subtitling service. Awesome.
Carlos Vela played in the rain last night for Osasuna against Barcelona but had a relatively quiet game, one half-chance in the first half apart. All good for his development though.
There’s not much else going on this early of a Monday morning. And I had a poxy night’s sleep. One of those nights where it takes forever to get to sleep despite being tired then having really long, epic, tiring dreams when you do nod off.
Anyway, such is life. I’m off. Wish me luck. Laters.
