Arseblog: Wednesday 17th April 2002

April 17th

23.45 – Despite my scepticism about the Microsoft story below, I got another email to say it was true. Should the fact that the address was [email protected] put me off? Hopefully all the Arsenal players came through tonight’s friendlies ok, and hopefully Michael Owen ruptured his spleen.

There’s some debate over the Man Utd v Arsenal fixture. They want it brought forward a day to the 7th coz they might be in the Champs League final the next week. On the other hand, we’ve got the cup final on May 4th and we could use a few days rest. Still, this wouldn’t be an issue if the FA hadn’t fucked around with the great tradition of the Cup Final being the last game of the season. It takes away a lot from the competition in my opinion – effectively, the FA decided the demote their showpiece competition for TV cash. I guess we’re just lucky it’s not ITV digital eh?

00.05 – Is this an exclusive? Just got a mail telling me that Arsenal’s new sponsors will be Microsoft and the deal is worth £40m over 4 seasons, a new record by a long way. To make the story even more…..er….convincing, this picture was included.

The wonders of Photoshop eh? You’d never catch A R S E B L O G doctoring pictures and stuff like that. We’re as honest and truthful as they come. Stop that laughing.
