Arseblog: Thursday 3rd April 2003

april 3rd

08.58 – What an odd place Spain is. The sky is blue, the sun is beaming already, and there’s a 70mph wind blowing that looks like it’s going to uproot the trees in the park behind my house. Oh well.

Arsenal transfer target Rustu was impressive enough against England last night, one early mistake aside. The war-paint is designed to intimidate opponents, so somebody should tell him wearing a Pringle polo-neck under his goalkeeper’s jersey undoes all the hard work. Once again though a good night for English football was marred by the small minority utter cunts that follow their national side. Singing ‘No Surrender to the IRA’ in the middle of a war against Iraq…..good one brainiacs.

I have a theory: anybody caught perpetrating violence at a football match, running onto the pitch, fighting, wearing a Burberry hat etc, should be shot in the leg. That would make them think twice about acting like such a fuckwit, and would certainly act as a deterrent to the other idiots. Yes, some innocent people would get shot at first, but eventually the threat of having a hole blown through your leg by a high-powered pistol would eliminate football violence forever.

Francis Jeffers has been hailed as the ‘next Alan Shearer‘ by Jermaine Jenas. All he needs to do is add sly elbows to his game – he’s got the diving and goalscoring parts down though. AW claims he is as calm as ever now that the season really starts to hot up. Villa on Saturday, then an FA Cup semi-final, them Man Utd at THOF. Stupid giving up smoking….

Arsenal’s Irish striker Graham Barrett, who is not on loan at Beveren, but is on loan at Brighton, talks about his career and hopes for the future.

Best job ever.
