Happy Friday to you all and Thierry Henry spoke yesterday about how he reckoned things would have been different if our strikers had stayed fit last season. He says:
Getting everybody injured in the same position does not help. A lot of teams had to suffer that during the season, but especially here it is maybe not the same when you miss some key players. We have a young squad and we missed at the important time of the season key, experienced players.
True enough but even down to bare bones we did have Baptista and Aliadiere who were hardly two novices. I think the key is the quality of the back-up you have and if our quality was measured in breakfast cereals those two are sugar-free Alpen, nature’s most disgusting combination of ingredients. Thierry talks about his own season and injuries and all that too.
MAYHEM – screams the Mirror. BOLLOCKS – screams everyone who has even half a clue.
Last night Arsenal Managing Director Keith Edelman met with Arsenal shareholders and some of the topics covered in the meeting include:
- Highbury Square and two other developments are expected to bring in significant profit when completed
- Arsene has as much money as he wants this summer
- Arsenal TV should exist by the end of the year
- A 2 minute bell at half-time could be introduced (just like the theatre, how posh!)
- The club are working on a new anthem to help improve atmosphere and it should be ready for the new season
- Arsenal has more female fans than any other Premiership club
And those were the main points that came from the meeting. Lots of them are worthy of discussion, don’t you think? That’s what the arses are for, go mad (in a good way).
Now, onto all things audio.
And on this week’s slightly shorter Arsecast, brought to you in association with OleOle.com, there are season reviews from Adebayor, Talkshite Radio and William Gallas’ penis, there are some outtakes and the Man in the Bar has another player history. There’s also a bet of the week from Bluesq.com which involves Samuel Eto’o.
