It is a bit strange having the league wrapped up with still four games to go, isn’t it?
Lots of Arselinky goodness around this morning, without too much comment from me. Let’s start with El Sol Campbell talking about how he considered quitting football after the death of his father and the flurry of red cards he received, Jose Reyes reckons Arsenal are a better side than Real Madrid, The Independent eulogises Thierry Henry yet reckons Jens Lehmann is a weak link in this Arsenal side (but check out the stats at the bottom of the article where they compare him to David Seaman), Arsenal-Land talk about GoldenWenger (Bond’s latest nemesis), Dennis Bergkamp reckons Arsenal are miles ahead of United and Chelsea and is looking for a new contract, while Martin Keown will look to be involved as much as possible in our last 4 league games otherwise he won’t get a medal.
Looking forward to next season, The Sun reckons we’re after John Terry and Steven Gerrard, while Europe is the final frontier for this Arsenal side with Patrick Vieira saying “The Champions’ League is a target for us. It is the same for every one of us here because no one has won that competition.”
So the boys have a bit of a rest before Saturday’s game against Brum. I suspect we’ll see a few changes in the side as some of them get a rest after their recent exertions. Maybe we’ll see Reyes start and Philippe Senderos could possibly make his full Arsenal debut before the end of the season.
On another note, you might remember the boiler saga from earlier this season. Well, on Saturday the fucking thing packed up again. We had no hot water and had to have cold showers all weekend long. Yesterday morning I rang the boiler repair people and kicked up such a stink they’re sending somebody out today (it normally takes at least three days, I’m very proud of myself really) to take a look. Yesterday afternoon I just said I’d give it an old fashioned whacking, like you used to do with old TVs, and what do you know, the thing started working again. Huzzah. Naturally, I haven’t told the boiler people…
