08.59 – Ashley Cole has been charged with misconduct by the FA.
This comes after he swore at referee Paul Durkin after the Southampton game. Yes, Ashley was stupid to swear and I’ve said here before he should maybe keep his mouth shut a bit more, coz his head goes a funny shape when he’s moaning and giving out, but Durkin seems to take great delight in dishing out the punishment to Arsenal players. Oh well, he’s going to burn in ginger-hell while the rest of us can piss on him from Arsenal heaven (which may or may not contain ginger Arsenal fans).
Robert Pires reckons he’s not far away from being 100% fit again, after his injury and surgery and his knee. He says “I am getting stronger and will last the whole 90 minutes at my best very soon. I’m feeling better and better.” Good news for us, bad news for everyone else, and hopefully for Manchester United this Saturday. No word on who’s going to keep goal, but you can have a look at yesterdays comments for discussion on that, and how to explode a goldfish with sparkling water. No, really.
Congratulations to purpleneutron, who has won himself a copy of the Arsenal football management game, in our competition. For the record, there were 8 Arsenal folk in there. You can find the answers here. Thanks to everyone who entered, bad luck to those who didn’t win, and as soon as I can blag more free stuff off people, I’ll have some more competitions.
Finally for today, prepare to do no work thanks to this top online wipeout style game (via Grayblog).
