20.09 – I got an email during the week from a Sunderland fan called Danny. He’s got a signed Arsenal shirt and is looking for bids to raise money for Niall Quinn’s testimonial. For those of you thinking ‘Well, big Niall hardly needs the money’, he is donating all funds from his testimonial game to charity so it’s for a really good cause. If you want to make a bid – it’s currently at £250, drop him an email at [email protected] or talk/text him on 07980393983 – that’s a UK number, so do the international access code thingy if you’re abroad.
I see we’ve been given the ‘lucky’ North Stand in Cardiff, hopefully Chelsea will get ‘lucky’ bubonic plague just before the game. I can’t find a link to it, but I saw on Sky Sports that a man was arrested during the Chelsea v Fulham semi-final for throwing celery onto the pitch. So many vegetable jokes, so little time…
I’ve received a ton of emails about retiring the number 6 shirt if Tony Adams retires at the end of the season. Every single one reckons the shirt should retire with the man, apart from one which said, and I quote ‘We can’t retire the shirt because we’re only allowed have numbers up to 50 and then we’d have to have 1 player less per season than everyone else’.
And on that note……..
