11.55 – Hi there, struggling to keep up at the moment. This course is hard work and leaves me little or no time to update the site. But, I’m doing my best, and doing what I can at odd moments, like now.
According to Myles Palmer on ANR, Tony Adams is definitely going to retire this summer. He also says that Nesta scored the own goal for Boro yesterday, so maybe we can take it with a pinch of salt. He reckons that Kevin Phillips, a documented Arsenal fan, is going to sign for Spurs. He’s a decent player is Phillips, but going to Spurs isn’t going to do him any good, they’re not much better than Sunderland, so he should stay where he is.
Apparently, Sol Campbell is going to be fit for the World Cup. England fans, please forgive me, but I couldn’t give two shits about whether he’s fit for the World Cup, I’d much rather he was fit and well to play for Arsenal. It’s funny, but after Sol’s injury and Beckham’s injury, all the talk has been how much of a blow it is for England, with little regard to how their clubs might miss them. Unless Tony can play from now until the end of the season alongside Martin Keown, we’re going to find life a bit more difficult. Maybe though, if Tony is going to retire, he can be kept fit with some injections and things like that.
And if the retirement news is true, A R S E B L O G reckons the number 6 shirt should be retired for good as a mark of respect. Tell us what you think, should Arsenal do without a number 6 if Tony does call it day?
06.50 – Breaking news – Ruud Van Nistlerooy has won the Player’s player of the year award. Should have been Bob, but to be fair RVN has had an outstanding season as well. No time now, more later.
