Oooh, it’s starting to get quiet, you know. The most exciting thing that happened this morning was me nearly spilling my coffee all over my keyboard having tripped over the dog who had got up to say good morning.
The long promised season review of 06-07 can be found here. Feel free to discuss, agree, disagree or whatever. Just always remember that Phil Collins is a cunt and everything’s good.
Emmanuel Eboue has signed a new ‘long term’ contract with the club. This comes not long after Justin Hoyte signed a new 4 year deal so obviously the boss is creating competition for the right back slot. Up until now Eboue has been first choice when it came down to picking between the two of them but what Hoyte lacks going forward Eboue lacks defensively. If you could somehow creat a mutant Hoyboue or Eboyte then things would be sweet.
Johann Djourou is happy with the way last season went for him, saying:
I am very proud of my season. I am only 20 and I have played a lot of games in the Premiership. That is all good for my experience and I hope I can keep going now, to play even more.
He did well, for sure, but for me he needs to add more aggression to his game. I think it was Djourou who made an awesome sliding tackle on Robbie Fowler at Anfield, wasn’t it? That’s the kind of stuff we need from him and the rest of them. Sliding tackles are cool.
Barcelona are still talking about Henry and are trying to get written assurances from him that he’ll join them before they open talks with Arsenal. Zzzzzzz.
And that’s about that. UEFA Cup final tonight. Sevilla v Espanyol – could be a cracking game, so it could. Can Sevilla retain it? Can Espanyol stop them retaining it? Those are the big, big questions.
Oh, and Sam Allardyce at Newcastle. Prepare to utterly hate the Geordies and their ghastly long ball tactics. What’s the bet he signs Kevin Davies? Fat prick.
Anyway, there you go. More tomorrow.
