I told you, didn’t I? The Spanish season is only over a few hours and already the madness has started.
This morning’s Sun reports that Arsene Wenger himself is a target for Barcelona with Frank Rijkaard expected to step down. Now, there have been rumours about Rijkaard for months but we know that Arsene will, at the very least, honour his existing contract so this story is rather fanciful to say the least. Still, it won’t stop the stories and let’s not forget that Arsene will bring Henry to Barcelona. And Cesc. And Kolo. And Robin van Persie. And Gilberto. And Rosicky. And Hleb. Ooooh, maybe it’s not all bad after all.
One of the main candidates for the Director of Football position that the club are trying to fill has turned down the job. Reading’s Nicky Hammond was offered the job last Friday but turned it down in order to stay at Reading. That means my application is still alive. Alive, I tell you! It will be interesting to see who else is on the short list and what happens from here.
JosÃ© Antonio Reyes has again reiterated his desire to stay in Spain and at Real Madrid if possible. He says:
I made Madrid champions and I’m so happy about that because that is the reason I came to the club. Maybe what has happened will convince the club they would like to keep me.
Maybe so but they’ll have to stump up a decent transfer fee unlike neighbours Atletico who offered us Â£3.50 over 45 years with 0% interest free cashback for 12 months and a final payment of Â£1.99. They were told to insert paella up their anal passages and rightly so.
Anyone waiting for this so-called ‘big’ transfer involving Arsenal today can rest easy. Jeremie Aliadiere is expected to complete a Â£3m move to Middlesbrough before the day is out.
The issue of an Arsenal Anthem has raised its tone deaf, no octave head again and the Online Gooner has a list of suggested songs. Looking at the list of suggested songs I feel it would be better for 60,000 to bray like retarded donkeys than sing any one of them. ‘Over the rainbow’ by Judy Garland? What the fuck? Do we all get to wear ruby slippers as well? I’ve said it before, if the club is to have an anthem it needs to happen organically and not be foisted on people. Otherwise it’ll just be as embarrassing as that shouting the names back to that eager cunt in the announcer’s box.
The consensus on the forum was that By Jesus said Paddy should be ressurected and that would make sense. Bridge over troubled water though? Fuck off.
Finally for today a big hello to Ian Wright. Hello, Ian Wright Wright Wright.
Talk to you all tomorrow.
