Arseblog: Wednesday 21st April 2004

april 21st

“10 men went to laugh, went to laugh at Chelsea…”

It’s only Wednesday and we don’t play until Sunday, so as you can imagine the news is in fairly short supply this morning.

Newcastle Chairman and pillar of the community Freddie Shepherd says that Arsenal can’t have Jonathan Woodgate (convicted lout) unless we give them Vieira, Henry and some cash. Vieira and Henry, Shepherd and Woodgate. It really is true when they talk about birds of a feather, eh?

And that’s kind of about it. Once again I’ve reached a point where I wish I’d kept an amusing story or two in reserve for days like this. At least there’s Euro2004 this summer, which does remind me of a story, ackshally. I was watching Soccer AM last Saturday and they do this feature where they interview a player/manager called ‘Things I know about football’. Each little bit begins with them saying stuff like:

“I know that this team can blah blah blah” or “I know that my favourite player is blah blah blah”.

As you can imagine they haven’t had old Ged Houllier on it as they need to fill more than 3.5 seconds. Still, they did have that low-browed Scouser Steven Gerrard on. One of his segments was “I know dis England team can do well at Euro2000, la.”

I happen to know that Euro2000 was over some 45 months ago. The daft twat.

In other exciting Arsenal news it seems that Lauren is set to return to the Cameroonian fold after announcing his retirement a couple of seasons. He’s going to have his work cut out to keep ahead of the likes of Hoyte and most probably Touré next season. What better way to do it than to stay match fit with some International games?

A question to get you arsing this morning: If you could have one Arsenal player from days of yore in today’s team, who would it be?  Me, I’d go for Liamo alongside Paddy in midfield.
