Morning all, it’s a fairly quiet and to be honest I think we can all do with a quiet one after the week just passed.
The Sun reports that Arsene Wenger flew to African two weeks ago for a meeting with Samuel Eto’o (wouldn’t Spain or somewhere in the middle have been easier?) and got the green light from the striker (who has consistently and vehemently said he wants to stay at Barcelona) about a move to Arsenal but the board (who have always said the manager would have money to spend) turned him down flat. Yeah, right.
Looks like we’ve signed Havard Nordveit, the young Norwegian centre-half. A fee of around Â£2m has been reported but given the fact he’s only 16 years of age I can’ t imagine we’ll be seeing him in the first team any time soon no matter what the reports say.
Thank you to everyone who emailed me the picture of Thierry Henry in a ‘Spurs’ shirt. Some basketball team are called Spurs too. I assume, like their London counterparts, that they are cunts. At least by association. I’m not a big basketball fan, I have to say.
This made me laugh. Nice work.
Oh, and as it’s quiet well done to Arseblog reader Andy who has just given birth to a little girl called Hermione. Most of us have wives for that sort of thing so he’s gone above and beyond. Congrats.
And that’s about it. The weather here is much better today in that we still have the grey, overcast sky but none of the torrential, freezing cold rain. I think I’ll sit outside with a good book.
