Some random guff on sunshine, work permits, and further transfers

What a glorious day we had in Ireland yesterday. There was sun, there was no rain, it might be as rare as a John Jensen goal but when they come along they’re a bit spectacular (made even better by the fact Ireland didn’t lose 3-1 to QPR either). It was

A morning in the life …

6.01am: Wake. Feel groggy. That last glass of wine immediately deemed unnecessary. 6.01 – 6.11am: Lie there as long as possible, delaying the inevitable. 6.12am: Get up, get slurped by large German Shepherd. Eventually make it to bathroom 6.14am: Make coffee. Declare to Mrs Blogs that this will be an

The fans who cried wolf

Morning all, it’s very, very quiet this morning. There was no Cech announcement yesterday. That’s all right. I was out doing stuff in real life so I didn’t notice. I saw a man vaping in a most unsatisfactory manner. I find those things ludicrous. Smoke or don’t smoke but let’s

Saturday round-up: Things will happen whenever they happen.

A very quick Saturday round-up for you. Lots of people are Tweeting me this morning wondering if we have to buy Petr Cech at all because David Ospina was so good last night for Colombia against Argentina. Although Messi & Co eventually made it through to the semi-finals via penalties,

Jeepers Keepers

The pursuit of Petr Cech is a very intriguing one for Arsenal on a number of levels, it weaves a web of tangled narratives. On the surface, it’s a signing that makes a lot of sense. It strengthens us in a key position on the pitch, one that many believe

Alexis is all right, Podolski wants to come back, Vlad arrives

Morning all. There are a couple of reasons I haven’t been watching the Copa America this summer. Firstly, the time it’s on at means I’m usually all tucked up in bed. Secondly, while I love football, the summer does provide some time away from the game – especially when we’re

Pliable vs Reliable: on transfers, rumours and thriving on lies

Morning all. It’s a beautiful day. The sun is shining, the sky is blue, the tumbleweeds are tumbling … oh. Yes, there’s only so long they can manage to stretch out the ‘Petr Cech move complete’ or ‘Arsenal agree terms with Cech’ or ‘Chelsea and Arsenal agree fee for Cech’

Time for me to Cech in again

Good morning, I’m back once again. But not like a renegade master, because my behaviour is not ill. I’d love to tell you I feel refreshed, full of vim, vigour and with my batteries fully recharged, but sadly that’s not the case. It’s not that I didn’t have a splendid
