Good morning and a good good Friday to you all.
It’s really quite quiet in terms of news, which is strange given the weekend ahead. Most of the focus seems to be on Liverpool v United which perhaps suits us. A little less hype. In terms of our early team news there’s nothing too surprising. We’re still without Rosicknote, Diaby and of course Eduardo. Apart from them everyone else is fit and available.
I suspect we might see Theo Walcott start this one ahead of Eboue. I don’t know why exactly. I mean I don’t know why I suspect that. Why Theo would start ahead of Eboue is like saying you’d rather get nekkid and steamy with Angelina Jolie ahead of Anne Widdecombe. The young man is celebrating this week. His 19th birthday and a call up to the England squad. That will certainly have given him a boost and I’d love to see him up against football’s newly crowned most-hated man, Cuntley Cunt. Move over Robbie Savage, the king is dead, long live the king … and stuff.
There’ll be more news tomorrow, you just see. There’ll be a pile of stuff from Arsene’s Friday press conference.
Johann Djourou talks about how the future is going to be great for Arsenal. Which is all well and good but at the moment nobody really cares about the future. We’re a bit too focussed on what’s happening now.
Nicklas Bendtner says Arsenal cannot drop any more points. I agree with Nicklas Bendtner.
And that’s really about it. More tomorrow no doubt, now Arsecast.
In this week’s OleOle.com sponsored Arsecast, I chat to Amy Lawrence about our recent form, Alex Hleb’s ice-cream and the upcoming game against Chelsea. The Man in the Bar has a player history, Adebayor pops up, Eboue’s there and more.
