Arseblog: Friday 20th December 2002

december 20th

10.12 – Life in la casa del Arseblog has taken a noisy and rumbunctious turn this morning. With some friends heading home for crimbo, we now have the pleasure of minding a 6 month old Boxer pup for the next 10 days. Add him to the 3 cats and a dog already here and it makes for some fun let me tell you. There’s enough fur flying to make Burt Reynolds a hundred toupées.

In the world of Arsenal we’ve got a few injury problems heading into the Christmas period. Patrick Vieira may not be fully fit until the new year, and with Edu suffering from a groin strain, it means Gilberto may not get that rest he needs until the new year. Stuart Taylor has broken a finger …again…and with Rami Shaaban (¡salud!) still making his way back to fitness, we could have a keeper half the age of old Seamo on the bench. Craig Holloway is standing by.

The good news from yesterday is that although the FA trial by TV department found Dennis Bergkamp guilty of stamping on that Blackburn player, they didn’t ban him and merely fined him £5,000. Given that Dennis has a bit of previous, and the FA’s fair and equitable treatment of Arsenal players, it’s better than I expected. As a matter of interest, does anyone know exactly what happens to the money that players pay in fines? Does it go to the FA’s coffers, or into some kind of trust to help grass roots football, or crippled ex-players, or what? 

Away from football – hahahaha, pranktacular, and this is most good, from The Onion. Also, if Snoop Doggy Dog wrote Arseblog.

I guess a lot of you will be finishing up work and so forth today, and may not have internet access over the festive period. To you I say, Merry Christmas, and get a computer at home you cheap fuckers (buy an iMac, you know you want to).
