15.35 – Some good news, and some better news.
The good news is that Dennis Bergkamp has won the player of the month award for March. He looks like the Dennis of yore, creating chances, scoring great goals and generally running about with purpose rather than sitting on his arse looking for free kicks like he spent most of the last 2 seasons. Well done Dennis.
The better news is that the Houllier – Thompson (Clouseau – Pinocchio) double act has won the manager of the month award. Thankfully, the panel have completely ignored Arsene Wenger and Arsenal’s impeccable league form, and put the hex on Liverpool now. I fully expect the curse of the manager of the month award to strike down the scousers. Hurrah.
11.19 – The nerves are starting already – Arsenal v Sp*rs tomorrow. A huge game for both clubs. For Arsenal it could be another 3 points on the way to the Championship, for Sp*rs it’s a chance to put a dent in their old enemy’s plans. Teddy Sheringham has said Sp*rs season is not over because they will have ‘..a big say in the Championship’ as they still have to play Arsenal and Liverpool.
A R S E B L O G translation: We’ll play our socks off against Arsenal, but won’t bother our arses against Liverpool.
Sheringham has also told Hoddle not to subsitute him. I think I can speak for every Arsenal fan when I say I hope that doesn’t happen either. I would much prefer to see him carried off on a stretcher in a full body cast, the poxy fucker.
From Keith re: Stadium names – how about Arsenal at ‘The Smith and Wesson Stadium’ or ‘The Canon Complex’? Love the last one. Thanks Keith.
