Arseblog: Sunday 7th September 2003

september 7th

08.31 – A quick Sunday round-up for you.

Sylvain Wiltord is ready to sign a new deal at Arsenal. “I feel good in London and the club, after all, have made me a concrete offer. I am not hard to handle. I’m a nice boy. Managers notice that I do the business on the field, whether I start the game or not.”

He did the business for France last night too. He scored 2 and Henry 1 as the blues whipped Cyprus 5-0. I think I’d like him to sign a new deal, and he seems more willing to do that now that he’s playing up front a bit more. I suppose at 29, the next contract you sign is probably going to be your last decent one, so he’s just making sure everything is ok. Maybe.

“Roy Keane was on the same course and I said to him: “I like my own company these days.” I got a bit analytical. I gave Roy all the spiel. I think he said, “Jesus, I only wanted you to pass the salt”.’ – a really good interview with Tony Adams in Observer Sport Monthly.

Let’s hope Sol ensure his mistakes only happen for England. What was he doing for Macedonia’s goal? It reminded me of Nial Quinn, the only player on the planet who would try and head a ball it was easier to kick.

As it’s international week, there’s nothing much else going on. And if anything happens later, I’m saving it for tomorrow. Laters.
