A quick round up ahead of what little news there is for you.
With the World Cup final on Sunday Thierry Henry is confident he can do the business for France. He says:
Italy have defended well, but against Italian sides in the Champions League I didn’t have trouble scoring, so I don’t think that’s going to be the way on Sunday.
He does have a good record against Italian teams in Europe but he’s going to have to put in a performance and a half to score on Sunday. I’ve said it before but he’s being used badly by Dommenech the same way that Eriksson used Rooney badly. Neither of them are lone strikers and you miss out a lot of what they can do by playing them in that role. With Italy so solid at the back he’s got to produce some magic because they won’t give him an inch. I’m looking forward to this one though.
Jens Lehmann is a proper gentleman and he’s willing to let Oliver Kahn play in tomorrow’s third place playoff. He also says his international future will depend on what Jurgen Klinsmann does.
Rangers are reportedly interested in Nicklas Bendtner. He’s well thought of so you’d have to think it would be a loan deal rather than anything permanent. Nice to see the links between Arsenal and Le Guen have started though.
I have to say thanks to Arseblog reader George in Kenya who sent me a copy of an artcicle in ‘The Standard‘, one of Kenya’s two main daily newspapers. It was about refereeing in the World Cup. Regular readers might recognise, oh, I dunno, about 95% of it. Have a look at it here.
Cheeky, rip-offing fuckers. I demand justice! A front page apology from the managing Editor would suffice. As would an all expenses paid trip to Mombassa. Seriously though, this annoys me. Arseblog takes up my time and I don’t make a penny for it. Then some lazy cunt gets told to write an article on the World Cup so he just steals my stuff.
May he forever have an itch upon his testicles.
Right, I have a busy day coz I’m going on holidays tomorrow. Hurrah! My final blog for a week will be tomorrow morning. Hurrah! Everyone join in…
