Good morning everyone. Yesterday I finished off my Christmas shopping. That was good. Drinking from 3pm until 11.30pm last night was also good. Waking up this morning was not good. Thankfully 8 x 500mg of paracetemol should do the trick.
So what’s going on this morning? Well, the boss had lots to say yesterday.
He talked about how totally awesome Theo Walcott is, he talked about how he’s going to fight the FA charge currently brought against him and he talked about how he believes this side has the ability to win the title. He believes we need the spirit of the 97-98 side though, saying:
The situation is comparable to 1998. I have the same feeling because the team gelled in confidence and belief. And suddenly the results became natural. I feel the situation is comparable so letâ€™s make sure the end is comparable.
Well, I could live with that, I have to admit.
In team news Rosicky could start, the rest of the injuries you already know about and that’s about that.
Ahead of today’s game against Blackburn former Gunner David Bentley says he’ll always be grateful to Arsenal for what they did for him but says he’s not an Arsenal fan and he’ll be trying to win the game today for his Sp*rs supporting mates. Way to ensure a good reception.
Emmanuel Adebayor talks about why he’s always smiling and his attitude is great. When he arrived from Monaco he had a bit of a reputation but we’ve not seen any evidence of that. He’s worked hard on and off the pitch and he’s winning over the doubters. Fair play to him. He says he likes to play jokes on people. His favourite one is to throw water on Emmanuel Eboue and speaking of Eboue the Ivorian talks about his childhood, which wasn’t a bag of laughs, in the Daily Mail.
Jeremie Aliadiere could join Middlesboro on loan.
I have to haul my battered carcass upstairs, shower, shave and go to the restaurant in Dublin I hate more than any other. That’s what happens when you let someone else make the booking.Till tomorrow.
