Midweek internationals mean most of the news is based around them.
Gilberto has pulled out of the Brazil squad to face Switzerland for ‘personal reasons’ and he’s been replaced by our new boy Denilson. Robin van Persie is out of the Dutch squad as his wife is due to give birth to their first child any minute now. Other than that I think everyone is away or some of them are away or something. I don’t really care once they come back safe and sound and injury free.
Sadly it appears that’s not the case for Theo Walcott who was injured playing for England U21s last night. I can’t find anything about how serious the injury might be but some reports suggested it could be quite serious. England won 1-0 with the goal from Arsenal right back Justin Hoyte so well done to him.
Apart from that there’s really not much going on. If you haven’t downloaded this week’s Arsecast you still have time to do so and enter the competition from classicfootballshirts.co.uk to win a poster featuring lots of Arsenal shirts.
Of course there’ll be a brand new one on Friday, hopefully, so if you have any questions, suggestions or contributions then please get in touch via the usual address – arsecast@[removethis]arseblog.com
Update: Ok, here’s something that might be a bit interesting. You can now contribute directly and audioarifcally to each Arsecast. All you have to do is go here and record your message. The computers and the interweb then send that message to me so I can download them and use them in the Arsecast. Talk about interactive, eh?
If you are leaving a message please say your name and where you’re from then fire away. Maximum time is around 60 seconds, I think, so get to the point as quickly as you can. It’s all a bit experimental at the moment and I’m not sure what the quality is like but we’ll give it a lash all the same.
And that’s it. Short but sweet. Well, short but not too bitter although I am a little tart.
