Morning all. Not a great deal happening, I have to say. We have Cesc Fabregas pretty much summing up what every Arsenal fan is thinking when he says:
We have to beat Bolton because we have to fight for the fourth place and be in Europe next season, then forget about this season.
He’s not wrong there. We have to win against Bolton to give ourselves some breathing space and if we can take three points from Man City and Fulham I’d say 4th will be ours. After that it’ll be time for some of the players to get a good rest ahead of next season and time for some other players to pack their bags as Arsene Wenger brings in some new ones. Hopefully.
Thierry Henry says he’s bored by the continued stories of him leaving Arsenal, saying:
I don’t know what to say any more or what to do – maybe having a T-shirt on me saying I’m staying at Arsenal and walking around London is the only thing I can do.
I think if he’s going to parade around in a t-shirt it should say “Look at Craptista and Aladiere and tell me those of you who bitched about me all season long and suggested selling me wouldn’t have me back in the team now that we need goals because I’m one of the only players in the team who can score goals because that pair of useless turds can’t.”
It’d have to be a really big t-shirt though. Or you’d have to get really, really close to him to read it.
Transfer rumours suggest we’re after St Etienne midfielder Loic Perrin who, judging by his stats, isn’t as good as Mathieu Flamini.
Nicklas Bendtner has been offered a four year deal by Arsenal, according to the Mirror, but apparently we face competition from the likes of Inter Milan, Chelsea and Real Madrid. Excuse me for a second… bwa ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha …. sorry, it’s just that it’s quite obvious that’s a story fed by his agent (who is also his father, I think) to hype up the player. There is simply no way that any of those clubs are even slightly interested in an 18 year old who has done reasonably well at Birmingham this season but who hasn’t scored since December and who’s making the headlines for the wrong reasons this week.
No doubt he’s another ‘fine prospect’ but to be brutally honest I’m rather fed up with ‘fine prospects’ and would prefer the odd ‘finished article’.
And that’s about that. Info about this Friday’s Arsecast to come tomorrow. In the meantime we can completely ignore last night’s Champions League football because, let’s face it, the Champions League is a tin pot trophy that nobody gives a fish’s tit about and only facilitates rival firms from big European clubs having a good scrap with each other.
It’s true. Until maÃ±ana, cuntos.
