Bleurgh, feeling absolutely shite. The blogette has managed to give and Mrs Blogs a poxy cold that she obviously picked up from some of the disgusting urchins she goes to school with. Today is a day for just sitting around playing Playstation (2 not 3, they were on sale freely in Dublin yesterday but somehow I managed to resist the temptation to spend nearly â‚¬1,000 on a game console and three games. What a load of overpriced shite) and watch football.
Very little happening this morning as all the focus is on the internationals. In a quick round-up, Steve Bruce says he always knew Nicklas Bendtner would end up back at Arsenal,Â Petr Cech sort of praises Jens Lehmann, we’re linked with yet another pre-pubescent prodigy – this time it’s a Norwegian called Haavard Nordtveit, Philippe Senderos and Johann Djourou both featured for Switzerland in a friendly against Jamaica.
And that’s about it in terms of Arsenal. I do have to mention our old friend Sepp Blatter saying “football is ill” after incidents of on pitch violence. To be fair to him he does say what happened at the Carling Cup final was nothing compared to what happened between Valencia and Inter Milan but it is slightly hypocrytical that the man who has done as much as anyone to make the game ill should shoot his mouth off.
Under his stewardship FIFA has become an organistation as corrupt and greedy as any big corportation you might want to mention. Their aim is purely and simply to make money and for all their talk about the good of the game we all know the motivation behind ideas like a World Cup every two years, restricting the number of ‘foreign’ players in a league and shite-arse tournaments like the Confederations Cup which is directly responsible for the death of one player but then FIFA don’t care. The show had to go on. Cunts.
He’s the one who has the clubs and officials desperate to cream in the Champions League money and advertising and sponsorship. He’s the one who introduces pathetic laws like players being booked for taking their top off, then players being booked for wearing a t-shirt with a slogan on it and doling out the same punishments for petty, stupid offences like that as they do for acts of serious, pre-mediated foul play.
He’s a fucking arsehole and the only way football, which undoubtedly has problems, will get any better is when someone in charge takes responsibility for the game of football and stops the shameless profiteering.
