Well, yesterday the moving men came at 8am. They left at 6pm. It’s tough work emptying a 6th floor flat especially when two pieces of furniture will only fit through one particular window and not out the front door and the police come along and tell you you’re not allowed use a rope to lower them down. Stupid police.
Still, it’s done, and I’m here until next week, on my own, without any furniture bar a camp bed and a chair until my landlord gets back from holidays so I can get my deposit back. It’s a bit lonely, I have to say. Last night I went to a bar with a book which is a bit sad!
Anyway, onwards with things Arsenal and The Sun is reporting that we’re about to make a bid for Javier Mascherano which would be totally awesome like a flying bicycle or a teleportation device. That’s how awesome it would be. Appartently talks have taken place between Arsenal and Corinthians. There aren’t too many transfers that would excite to the point of doing a little bit of poo in my pants but this one would. Fingers crossed.
AW revealed yesterday that he’s planning for life without Ashley Cole, which is fair enough, and came out with another classic regarding the JosÃ© Antonio Reyes situation. Obviously JosÃ© wants to go back to Spain but neither of the Madrid clubs has made an offer which is accetable to Arsenal. AW said:
Itâ€™s like you wanting to marry Miss World and she doesnâ€™t want you, what can I do about it? I can try to help you but if she does not want to marry you what can I do?
Brilliant. The man should do stand-up if it wasn’t for the fact stand-up comedians are generally complete cunts.
I also liked his ‘He’s very happy. He doesn’t want to go to Spain!’ line when asked about Theo Walcott who, he said, is beginning to push for his first start for the club. He also revealed that the club has money to spend on players which is not conditional on selling anyone. Even if Cole and Reyes stay there’s money to spend, saying:
Do not think that we do not have the money to buy anyone if nobody goes out, that is not true.
Good to hear. Now start spending!
Team news for today sees Freddie Ljungberg, who has done pretty well in two games having come back early from an injury, rested while Tomas Rosicky could make his Premiership debut. Jens Lehmann and Thierry Henry are set to start and I hope Robin van Persie starts with him today.
I’ll be going somewhere to watch it with a beer or two. Hurrah for beer. Till tomorrow.
