And so it goes on

I'll miss you so much

I’ve been debating having a summer holiday for a while & I’ve finally taken the plunge & booked something – It’s nothing fancy, only a little place in a remote English village. My wife was expecting one of those fancy spa retreats & I guess in a way I’ve gone for something similar as there are ‘treatments’ of sorts – Japanese water torture, sensory deprivation, solitary confinement, water boarding, keelhauling & sleep deprivation to name a few.

Now I know that may not be to everybody’s taste but right now I’m pretty certain that any of the above methods of torture would be more enjoyable then the continuation of the ‘Cesc Saga’. 

I thought that now Big Brother was no more we wouldn’t have to spend an entire summer seeing/hearing/watching morons bleat on & on & on… 

Don't say f*ck or bugger

Xavi has become the new Davina McCall, impressive to look at but you wish to Christ the pair of them would shut up! *with regards to the diminutive Spaniard being impressive to look at I mean watching him play football, I’ve no idea if he looks good in a dress.

Instead of the newspapers speculating on who is going to be the last to leave the house they’ve moved on to speculating on Arsenal’s cut off date for Barca to stump up the required cash. For a few weeks now it was supposedly this Friday, but as this Friday draws ever closer whilst the deal seemingly doesn’t the date or ‘C-Day’ as it were has been moved to Monday.

Will it ever end?

It appears we’re no closer to seeing any new arrivals at the grove prior to the much maligned Emirates Cup this weekend. I’m sure folks are looking forward to seeing the Arsenal but with the lack of any big signings and the above mentioned balagan not even the impending return of Thierry Henry (albeit in a New York Red Bulls shirt) can raise the lack of excitement  or hype surrounding the mini tournament.

Theo Walcott could miss the games against Boca Juniors & NYRB after heading home early from the German training camp with an ankle injury. There is no news yet on how serious it is but it must be more than a knock if Theo has had to return to London Colney for treatment rather than stay with the team in Deutschland. Lets just hope it’s nothing that could force him to miss the start of the season, he needs to keep as injury free as possible this year.

Tractor Boy

Jay Emmanuel-Thomas completed his move to Ipswich Town yesterday in a £1.1m deal, it seems that for all the individual talent the captain of the FA Youth Cup winning side may posses it was his attitude which ultimately lead to Wenger feeling he had no long term future at the club. I certainly wish JET all the best for the future and hope he doesn’t crash his new tractor.

Emmanuel-Thomas could soon be followed out of the exit door by Craig Eastmond & surprisingly Henri Lansbury. I’m not sure we could go as far as to say this is the end of ‘Project Youth’ but it is interesting that Arsene seems more prepared to let young players leave the club, especially those he had earmarked as future first teamers, unless at the end of the day the players in question just maybe didn’t cut the mustard?

After strong suggestions that Emmanuel Eboue was close to completing a move to Galatasaray yesterday it’s all gone quiet however we Arsenal fans know better than most that transfers can drag on a little sometimes.

Have you seen this man?

Finally I would like to put out a missing persons report – since being spotted by 42,000 people in the Emirates car park last Thursday French international Franck Ribery has not been seen.

Right I’m off to stick pins in my eyes while listening to recordings of Xavi talk about Cesc, lovely.

Have a good day, thanks for reading.

Up The Arsenal!
