Oh good holy Jesus *boilk*
Is there any better way to start the week than with a raging hangover and all the sensation in your fingertips going missing? There is? YouÂ mean it’s to wake up on a Monday morning and not feeling like killing yourself? How different.
I’m sitting here now and all I can think of is the beer and the gin and the way the bloke in the hotel had to go find a screwdriver to open up the bar because he couldn’t find a key for the padlock. Seriously. He unscrewed the whole latch so he could serve us booze when quite clearly we’d had enough. When will hotels ever learn that people don’t need gin and tonics at 4am?
Anyway, there’s probably some stuff to talk about this Monday so let’s do that. Cesc reckons that the late goal against Villa is a good thing, well obviously it’s a good thing, but a good something something about this team. He says:
If a team is weak mentally, you do not come back from these games – because these are matches when everything is against you, maybe it is not the best game of your life, but still you come back and get the points. That means something.
Exactly right. The something is a very important something and some times some somethings aren’t as somethingy as you would like so we should be thankful for the kind of something we have.
Arsene Wenger has denied there’s any kind of problem between Adebayor and Bendtner, saying:
I don’t know if they like each other or not – but basically I don’t see there is a problem. You don’t have to be friends to play well together.Â I think they get on quite well. But once the suspicion is in people’s heads they look at every single movement to see if there is a problem or not, but I don’t think there is a problem.
And the example that always gets trotted out is the Andy Cole v Teddy Sheringham one. Which is sort of like saying Hitler didn’t like Jack the Ripper. I think the two big lads are fine, Ade’s header provided the goal for the big Dane. Less hating, more loving. Hoving. That’s what we need.
Arsene Wenger outlines his plans for Milan. He talks about the football and the way we play. If it was me though the plan would be to smear all our players with a strong garlic sauce as it would be terribly distracting for the Italians.
Right, there’ll be more team news and other stuff ahead of the Milan game tomorrow. For now though I’m going to drink some coffee, take some painkillers, eat a bacon sandwich and wonder why the fuck it’s snowing here in Dublin. Fucking hell. Ouch.
