10.15 – I suppose we should start the day with the bad news. Thierry Henry has picked up a hamstring injury and is definitely out of Saturday’s FA Cup tie against Oxford. Maybe it’s not such a bad thing, we all know he needs a bit of a rest having played mostly every game so far this season, and with the next two league games against Birmingham and West Ham, it should give Francis Jeffers a decent run in the side to show what he can do.
Strong rumours circulating that Matthew Upson is set to join Birmingham City. Will refrain on commenting on this until it’s confirmed one way or the other, but I would be very surprised and disappointed if this happened. We’ll see.
Arsene Wenger is confident that we can retain the title, after coming through the Christmas period unbeaten, and with 10 points from 12. On the other hand, Liverpool boss Gerard Hoofier admits it’s as good as over for the scousers this season. The Liverpool fans are obviously most unhappy at their meagre 4 points from 30, and having been 7 points clear at the top not so long ago, now trail the mighty Southampton, and Everton, in 7th place.
Away from football, the first ‘most stupidest story of the year so far’, goes to a man called Jack Ass, who is suing MTV and the makers of their show ‘Jackass’, because it was ‘liable for injury to my reputation that I have built and defamation of my character which I have worked so hard to create.’ Riiiiight, you mad fucker. I just hope their isn’t a Mr C. Unt reading this too often….
