12.05 – The A R S E B L O G spies have been out and about, and we can exclusively reveal to you, Sp*rs confirmed line-up for the crunch game on Saturday.
09.27 – After wondering yesterday if Arsenal players were internet friendly I received the following email:
this is Igor Stepanovs and I love to read your site. If you want to do an interview with me, meet me at 12 midnight at Finsbury Park and I’ll give you an exclusive you’ll never forget. Nudge Nudge – Wink Wink
Quite. Anyway, the fact that the email address contained the words ‘ihategooners’ was a bit of a turn off I have to say. That said, we are always glad to get your emails, so feel free to get in touch.
00.29 – Ashley Cole’s injury isn’t thought to be serious, which is good news. He’s gonna miss the game against Sp*rs on Saturday and won’t get to play against his old pal, Ledley, but should be fit after that.
Deportivo the non-trying Spaniards 0-2 Manchester United.
A good and bad night for United and Beckham – he scored a brilliant goal, then got chopped in half by Diego Tristan in the last minute and picked up what looked like a nasty injury. Roy Keane had already been taken off with a suspected hamstring problem and could be out for 4 weeks.
Now, obviously this has an impact on Arsenal, as Keane and Beckham have both been outstanding for United recently. I wouldn’t wish injuries on any player…well….I used to wish injuries on opposition players all the time, then all of our players got injured, so I stopped. Stopping seems to have done the trick eh?
Will Fergie’s men be as effective with Keane and Beckham? They could definitely handle the loss of one, but both of them might be too much. Now, I just need somebody to hide Gerard Houllier’s asprin and the title is ours.
