09.23 – I can’t say it often enough. I’m bored stupid of international football.
What has international football given us so far in the last week? Racist Slovakian stretcher bearers making monkey noises at Ashley Cole and Emile Heskey. England fans involved in more fighting. Mick McCarthy saying he’ll quit Ireland whether or not he qualifies for Euro2004 – do us a favour and fuck off now Mick. Crap football, the England coach’s 3 in a bed fantasties with Ulrika, the FA on their high horse, UEFA promising to investigate and no doubt they’ll cripple the Slovakian FA with a hefty fine of €13,000 and a slap on the wrist. Top stuff.
The only Arsenal news I could find today is an interview with Sol Campbell, and a badly spelt wee story on Arseweb about Robert Pires playing in a specially arranged friendly against QPR at the Arsenal training ground. Francis Jeffers will be in action tonight for England’s U-21s against Macedonia, but there’s no sign of Stuart Taylor in the squad.
In other non Arsenal stuff, Microsoft’s attempts at copying Apple’s switch campaign have stumbled, bashed their head off the bannister and fallen down the stairs in a heap. See here for more…heh, stupid Microsoft. And if you really have nothing to do in work today, or you just don’t feel like doing anything, why not spend some time here or here. Have fun.
