Good morning chums, it’s pissing rain here, my head hurts due to the malign influence of the mug smasher and I’ve got to finish off the arsecast while writing the blog. Multi-tasking this early is not easy.
Let’s start with the fact that Arsene Wenger was fined Â£10,000 for his little scuffle with Alan Pardew. He said afterwards he wasn’t happy about it but that he accepted it. Fair enough. Time to move on. Pardew has requested a personal hearing, no doubt he’ll get the same. No DOUBT.
Jens Lehmann could be off to Spain apparently ‘plunging’ Arsene Wenger into a ‘keeper crisis’. Reports from Spain suggest Sevilla will offer him a two year deal while Arsenal will only offer one. Now, while I’m a big fan of Jens, he’ll be 63 next year and we’re going to have to replace him sooner rather than later anyway. It’s hardly a fucking crisis especially as it’s not going to happen until the summer anyway.
Johann Djourou says Arsenal won’t give up on the title and will keep chasing Chelsea and United. The impressive central defender says:
The Premiership does not end until May and we are just trying to win every game. We are going to try and catch up with them. Everybody says â€˜oh it is hard, it is hardâ€™ but the belief is there.
What great spirit and old school innuendo. Love it.
The draw for the first knock-out stages of the Champions League takes place today. Arsenal can draw one of the following teams – Real Madrid, Barcelona, Pete’s Dragons, the Harlem Globetrotters, the Mighty Ducks, Roscommon GAA team, Team America or Brazil. Not sure what time it takes place at but you can be sure they’ll manage to turn what is a 2 minute draw into a couple of hours of complete and utter bollocks.
Now then, it’s Friday, it’s 9.30, it’s time for arsecastajack!!!
This week I have a blogchat with Gilbertosilver from gunnerblog.com in which we discuss 4-5-1 and signing someone like Ribery, Arsene Wenger Hawkins receives and responds to a very interesting proposition, there’s a bet of the week from bluesq.com and more inane drivel. The arsecasts are sponsored by my friends at classicfootballshirts.co.uk where you can find authentic football shirts and leisure wear from times past.
