10.09 – What a sunny Sunday it is.

David Bentley scores his first Arsenal goal....

On your left you can see a very happy David Bentley, celebrating his first Arsenal goal. After the game Arsene Wenger paid him the compliment of comparing him to Dennis Bergkamp. “I believe that he has a bit of the characteristics of Bergkamp, who is his idol. If a young boy comes on for five minutes and chips the keeper, you cannot say he lacks confidence.”

There’s a great piece on Kolo Toure by the always excellent Amy Lawrence in the Observer. I especially like the fact that Kolo, who has been more or less ever-present, talks about playing at right back and how he has to work hard to get his place back in central defence. “…now Lauren is back and Pascal Cygan is playing well [alongside Campbell], so that puts me in a bad position. But I have to work hard to get my place back.”

You just can’t fault his attitude at all and if he’s up for young player of the year and he doesn’t win it, there’s something very wrong somewhere.

Not much else going on this morning. I’m going to go down to the beach and read all about how Demento is about to be shafted out of United by Magnier and McManaus (Sunday Times for those of you interested). Till later.
