Arseblog: Wednesday 3rd September 2003

september 3rd

07.36 – I hope you realise that as the Arsenal news dwindles away to nothing, eroded by the burny, acidic piss of international football, I’m going to have to resort to ever more desperate measures to fill the days’ postings. Some more ‘Where are they now’? A giant picture with a (slightly/nearly/possibly/youstupidcuntingly) hilarious caption? Not telling, just warning you in advance.

“He’s brilliant, we haven’t really had someone like that before, he adds an extra dimension to our game because everytime he gets the ball down the wing he’s a threat. It’s a lot easier for the front players to work off when you have someone like him.”Marc Viduka on Jermaine Pennant. Hmmmmm.

Arsene Wenger says he was right to stop spending because “…there is also a benefit to be had from keeping the same squad.”

He makes a good point, but he’s also a great spoofer. I have no doubt Arsene would have liked some money in his pocket to do a bit of shopping in the summer. One of the great things about Wenger though is the fact he can say something like that, and make you believe him.

David Dein likes the loan system. Not just because it means younger/fringe player can get valuable experience and playing time in the Premiership, but also because “…the loaning club saves the player’s salary costs but retains him as an asset and could even see the player’s value improve.” The Sun speculates that with all the players currently out on loan, Arsenal are saving £75,000 a week.

“After seeing the way Madrid have just treated Claude Makelele, I certainly have no regrets over not joining them. In fact, it reassures me I made the right choice in staying at Arsenal.”Patrick Vieira. But didn’t Makelele effectively go on strike after having his head turned by his no-good agent Marc Roger?

Did Everton let Liverpool win 3-0 so that Houllier will keep his job and be there for years? No ! Such talk is pure mischief.” – Mylesopold.

Don’t forget the Wenger competition. You have till Thursday at midnight to enter. Even though I put ‘Only one entry per person’, there were still people who entered 3 times. One person instead of putting, a, b, then c, managed to send 2 bs. Good man. Also, if you’re going to do that, try not to do it with a 4 second gap between each one, making it look totally obvious. Anyway, they got disqualified. Lots of entries too, 200+ at this stage. I should mention as well that I’m harvesting your email addresses for a wicked bad SPAM campaign. Mwa ha ha etc.

YACCS/arses should return at some stage today.

Hi-ho. Till later.
