Ok, a fairly quick one as I spent far too much time writing yesterday. More on that in a few minutes.
We’ll start with Theo Walcott who is said to be ‘shocked and surprised‘ but not nervous about his England call up. Some people think Sven has lost the plot. Some people don’t care. At the end of it it’s only going to be good for Theo who will surely came back for the new season full of confidence and better able to sit on the bench and not come on the pitch at all. The youngster is also convinced that Arsene Wenger is the man to make him a star, calling him a genius for the work he’s done with Cesc. Graham Taylor and Alan Shearer have their say about Theo’s inclusion in the World Cup squad. We know how quick Walcott is but he said he hasn’t had a race with Thierry Henry yet. Word is there wouldn’t be much between them.
Speaking of Thierry I finally got around to writing that piece about him and his future. It just looks at the things he might be considering if, as is widely speculated, he’s deciding between Arsenal and Barcelona. Thierry Henry – Arsenal or Barcelona.
Pascal Cygan reckons the Captain should stay put too although he does seem to insinuate he should just stay for one season at the Grove then bugger off to Spain. Naughty, Pascal!
Dennis Bergkamp has urged Arsenal’s players to make the most of the Champions League final next week. He says:
I have told a few of the guys over the past weeks that this could be the only Champions League final they ever play in – there are no guarantees. I am sure all the players will realise that this could be a one-time in your career. So you have to focus – first of all enjoy it but as well you have to try to give everything to win it.
Wouldn’t a Bergkamp curler to win in it in the last minute be something else? I’m not sure if my heart would last that long in Paris but it’s ok to talk about it here.
Despite writing an impassioned letter to the FA Premier League yesterday it seems Sp*rs chances of having their game against West Ham replayed are non-existent. They played the game. The result stands.
What exactly happened on Saturday May 6th at that hotel remains a mystery. However, Arseblog has produced a special commemorative t-shirt which you can buy from our chums at goalhanger.com. We get a small cut of each shirt sold. Click the pic for a bigger look at the shirt and click here to buy one and join the Arseblog Catering Co. Cheers to Moj for his help on this one.
Ok, that’s about it for today. Happy shopping, Arsechefs…
