A busy and important week ahead with tomorrow’s vital Champions League game first on the agenda. Might I just take this opportunity to say I fucking hate ITV4, which is the only channel showing it, simply because I don’t have it. Naturally all the other channels are showing Celtic v United. There’s nothing like choice, eh? You can choose which channel to watch the same game on. Wankers.
Update: The game is on Setanta Sports here in Ireland. I really should have known that.
It looks like that we’ll be without Robin van Persie after the injury he picked up against Newcastle. Arsene Wenger says it ‘doesn’t look good’. The boss also says he was right to rest Thierry Henry on Saturday.
Henry canâ€™t play 90 minutes Sunday, Wednesday, Saturday and then again on Tuesday. Itâ€™s impossible.
Which is fair enough. He does admit to making other ‘wrong decisions’ but not that. I wonder does he mean he showed Newcastle too much respect with the 4-5-1 formation. Would van Persie and Adebayor had more impact as a pair of strikers in a 4-4-2? It will be interesting to see what sort of team he picks tomorrow.
Apparently Glenn Roeder was told to ‘Sit down tumour boy’ after Newcastle scored on Saturday. Quite frankly that sort of abuse is just unacceptable. If you’re going to abuse Roeder you simply must refer to his likeness to Roland Rat, the Roland Rat looking cunt. What sort of abuse is ‘tumour boy’ anyway? He doesn’t even have a tumour anymore if you don’t count Titus Bramble.
According to yesterday’s Mail on Sunday Perry Groves’ book ‘We all live in a Perry Groves world‘ is outselling Ashley Cole’s and not just that, he’s outselling Wio Ferdinand and Fat Fwank. Hurrah for the interweb. For those of you who still haven’t got a copy Pez will be making personal appearances as he continues his march towards world domination. On Thursday Nov 30th he’ll be in Border’s book shop in Islington so go there to get your copy and get it signed and after the Sp*rs game at home he’ll be doing a Q&A and some signings in The Rocket on Holloway Road which RedAction’s treehouse where they go to make up new songs or something.
And that’s it, more or less. Team news will emerge during the day and there’ll be a full preview of the Hamburg game tomorrow. Till then…
