Arseblog: Sunday 20th October 2002

october 20th

09.25 – If you haven’t seen Wayne Rooney’s goal yet, don’t worry. You will. You’ll see it countless times this week I’m sure. In fairness, it was a goal that deserved to win a match from a player that Arsene Wenger has called ‘a very special talent‘. It’s hard to believe he’s just about to turn 17. Enjoy him Everton fans…

David Seaman says he won’t quit international football. He’s quoted in The News of the World “Critics have never worried me and it has always been something you have to learn to live with as a keeper. I enjoy playing and I have no doubt in my ability.” A word about the Everton fans yesterday as well. They could have given him a hard time but instead welcomed him to Goodison Park with generous applause. That wouldn’t have happened the other side of Stanley Park I’m sure. Top marks Bluenoses. Andy Gray says his piece in support of DS1 in today’s Sunday Mirror and like me, he reckons Paul Robinson is too young to take over as England’s No.1.

So, Arsenal have to regroup now and get set for Tuesday night’s game against Auxerre. The good news is that Robert Pires could make the bench, although AW hasn’t made his mind up about that yet. Arsenal have done so well without him, but maybe a tight game like yesterday was crying out for a piece of Pires magic to make the difference. A win or a draw on Tuesday will see Arsenal through to the second stage, and I expect Auxerre to feel the backlash of yesterday’s defeat.

Finally, fancy a pair of Arseblog boxer shorts? Or an Arseblog frisbee? How about an Arseblog mug or clock? Nah, didn’t think so….

Anyway, now you can impress the ladies with your stylish, comfortable yet ‘fuckin’ excellent’ underwear by visiting the Arseblog shop at Cafepress. And ladies, don’t worry, we’ve got a stylish…*cough*…. ladies t-shirt thingy there too, but sadly no ‘fuckin’ excellent’ knickers at the moment.

All proceeds go to covering the costs of the site and a little will go into the jar marked ‘Lawsuits’.
