20.56 – Dennis Bergkamp has made the long journey home and is set to start tomorrow against PSV. I guess we’ll get a chance to look at Van Bommell and Hofland first hand. Actually, most people won’t get a chance because those twats at ITV have made Arsenal’s champions league games almost impossible to see by scheduling them on channels not too many people have.
Not that I have ITV in this part of the world, but it’s still shit. The good news however is that BBC and SKY have outbid ITV for the TV rights for the next 3 seasons. ITV”s Premiership programme is probably the worst football show ever to be shown and the sooner the Beeb get the rights back and ITV stay the fuck away from football forever, the better.
If we get a penalty tomorrow night, Thierry Henry will be the man to take it. I can’t argue with that at all, and it’s still mystifying why players with the talent and composure of Kanu and Dennis Bergkamp bottled it after missing penalties.
My sincere thanks to those lovely people at Arseweb, who have added Arseblog to their links section. Having just bought the end of season DVD, can anyone tell me why Sky Sports West Ham supporting presenter Matt Lorenzo is the narrator? It just doesn’t sound right when he says “…we did this”, or “…then we went on to score 2 more” when he’s a dirty Wet Shammer and who always looks as if he’s got his hand up the skirt of that lovely blonde girl who does the sports news in the morning with him.
If anyone at Arsenal reads this site (which I doubt coz they still haven’t bothered their hole explaining their anti-Macintosh stance to me), I’d be quite happy to volunteer for next season’s DVD. For a sample of my dulcet tones, click here.
