09.47 – Henry close to Real move – Arsenal accepts Real Madrid’s offer for Henry.

Just two headlines that were available last night. Of course, neither of them are true. It’s pure shitwitchery from two websites who want to get a few more hits and are putting ridiculous story titles so they’ll show up on NewsNow and lots of people will click on them. Have these people no shame?

Arsene Wenger last night dismissed a move for French keeper Sebastian Frey, who has been telling anyone who’ll listen that Arsenal and Chelsea are fighting over him. Well, he’s now been shown up as a right desperate twat as Chelsea will sign Peter Cech at the end of the season and Arsene Wenger says “He said that he has had me on the phone telling him that I want him to come here. I can tell you that I’ve never spoken to him.”

With regard to Robin van Persie he wasn’t so outright dismissive, saying “I can just say that we haven’t signed anyone and you can trust me that when we’ve signed someone, we will inform you.”

The rezzies got done 2-0 by West Ham last night, with former Arsenal next-big-thing David Noble scoring one of the goals. Thierry Henry may only be on the bench for the FA Cup game against Boro on Saturday. I suppose it all depends on the fitness of Dennis Bergkamp and Sylvain Wiltord, who have both been injured for the longest 10 days that I’ve ever known. Le Bob talks about Euro2004, gossips and how much he wants to win the Champions League.

Thursday already. This is good.
