A quick Saturday round-up. Arsene Wenger is convinced Thierry Henry will sign a new deal but wants it sorted out within a specific time frame. He reckons Thierry is in ‘football paradise’, and that Vieira will realise he was too. To be fair to Vieira though he might have been having a piece of delicious fruit, swimming in the crystal clear pool underneath the waterfall while naked Angelina Jolie beckoned him to come hither when Arsenal dragged him by the ear to the gates and told him to go to Italy. Or something.
TH is out of today’s game against Boro having picked up a calf injury while Freddie Ljungberg is rested after playing two games for Sweden. That means player of the month Alexander Hleb will start, will he play on the right hand side or up front? We shall see. Not much else happening really.
We’ve got out first pre-season friendly this evening as well. I haven’t had a completely inactive summer so hopefully I won’t be too crippled tomorrow. Good to have real football back though.
